  2. RIP Sonny Fox

    Gosh I remember that show. Channel 5 of course. R.I.P. Sonny.
  3. Covid vaccination: poll

    My plan it's to get it once it is made available. My wife is a healthcare worker and she already has her shots.
  4. Herbie Nichols Radio Interview

    Found this under the video display. Herbie Nichols is interviewed on the radio show, The Scope of Jazz by Mait Eady. I purchased Nichols' handwritten scores for The Gig and 52nd St. Rag. Within the envelope was a CD with this rare interview. These were given to a friend of Nichols, Joe Muranyi, who is mentioned in the interview. This is a rare chance to hear Nichols talk about his early life studying music, Harlem house parties, hearing big bands at The Apollo, George Gershwin and jazz criticism. It is a phenomenal interview, and the only time we can hear the speaking voice of one of the most original pianists and compsers. The photos of Nichols are by Francis Wolff from the Mosaic Records collection. https://www.mosaicrecordsimages.com/p... The music featured is primarily from the Blue Note Records catalog. Thank you and enjoy - JASON MORAN
  5. Herbie Nichols Radio Interview

    I posted this on Facebook earlier this morning and got a similar reaction. That's why I decided to share this with you guys.
  6. Herbie Nichols Radio Interview

    I saw this posted yesterday on YouTube by Jason Moran a radio interview on WBAI from 1962 featuring Herbie Nichols. I posted here in case no one else has heard this before.
  7. COVID 19 Poll For the New Year

    She just got her first shot on Tuesday. Usually she won't even get the flu shot but times are different obviously. Makes me feel better. One of her coworkers tested positive and brought the virus home and infected her spouse. He's 78! Apparently both are okay.
  8. COVID 19 Poll For the New Year

    As some of you know my wife works at a assisted living facility and she has been working some incredibly long hours recently. Between staff and residents there must be a dozen people infected. For example the last 3 days she's worked nothing less than 12 hours/day. She might catch a break tomorrow and only work an 8-hour shift maybe 9. As of now she's off Tuesday but nothing's guaranteed. Of course it doesn't help when some of the staff regularly call out sick whether they are actually ill or not. She gets frustrated at times and I don't blame her.
  9. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    The facility my wife works has been covid free until 2weeks ago. Now 2 residents are infected and 2 staff.
  10. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    Today nearly 750 cases. Small potatoes for most, alot for Maine.
  11. The Scarborough store is the store I spoke of in an earlier post. The jazz section is tremendous. Unfortunately for me I haven't stepped inside yet. At this point it looks like sometime in the new year. Covid cases in the state have skyrocketed in the past couple months.
