  1. Me as well--thanks for the heads-up!
  2. Jazz Name Pronunciation

    Thank you much, sir! You're good people.
  3. Jazz Name Pronunciation

    WFIU colleague is putting together a Lou-Rawls-in-the-60s show and just asked me how to pronounce Onzy Matthews' first name. I've always said "ON-zee," but is that correct?
  4. Andre Francis 1925-2019

    Is this him, at the beginning of this audio clip?
  5. AOTW Jan 25-31 D. Ellington "Black, Brown & Beige"

    Who/what was the 1945 version recorded for? I'm familiar with the DETS broadcasts from that year... there's also a two-part BBB on the V-disc recordings, though not sure where that's sourced from.

    I think we're definitely on our way to a work stoppage come the next CBA negotiations. If I were the players' union, I'd push for dramatically lifting the luxury tax brackets, raising the minimum MLB salary, and putting a stop to the manipulation of service time... for starters. And definitely advocate some anti-tanking measures as well, though I'm not sure what form those might take.
  7. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    As much as I love Betty Roche, I'd probably agree that Ivie noses past her as Ellington's "best" regular-band vocalist; Joya Sherrill's another favorite of mine. When it comes to male vocalists, I know Al Hibbler drives some folks up the wall, but I actually enjoy his presence in the mid-to-late-40s edition of the orchestra. "This is your brain on Coltrane."

    As baseball debates its rules, players suggest trying harder to win
  9. Timeless Jazz Returns to WUTC-FM

    That is great news, Ken! Thanks for the heads-up.
  10. Fantastic, TTK! A couple of shows down the line for which I may well seek your input. Thanks so much, Joe! Shirley seemed right at home with it.
  11. Braxton Santa Cruz CDs for sale.

    You're killin' me! I'll take 'em both...PM forthcoming.
