  1. How would you play this?

    It's not photoshopped. At first I thought it was, but there are a number of these posted online. A space saver, but not practical in seriously play. Anyone ever seen one of these in person?
  2. James Mtume (1946-2022)

    RIP Mtume.
  3. Sonny Stitt help

    The blues is called "Deuces Wild." I have it on a few CDs/
  4. Sonny Stitt help

    yes. Thank you.
  5. Sonny Stitt help

    That won’t work for a private recording.
  6. Sonny Stitt help

    Back in 2010 I was given a cassette of a Sonny Stitt performance. In the 12 years since, I have not been able to identify the titles of these two numbers. I've asked a number of people, but the answers I got were not correct. Anyone here know the title of these two? https://mega.nz/folder/rgtwBJjC#lo-IfkCJU4jWDvIwZz2_2w
  7. Marilyn Bergman has died.

    Thanks for clearing that up. But I do see her name as one of the composers for “what are you doing the rest of your life.” It must be a mistake on the lp. I know Michel Legrand and Allen Bergman are the composers. Maybe she had something to do with the writing of that tune as well.
  8. Marilyn Bergman has died.

    Composer Marilyn Bergman has passed away at the age of 93. Probably her best known composition was, “what are you doing the rest of your life?”
  9. RIP, Sidney Poitier.

    Mods, can you move this to the artist forum?
  10. RIP, Sidney Poitier.

    He was a great actor. 94 is a good life. RIP.
  11. I am sure it was posted here a good 10 years ago. I’ll try to find it.
  12. Both Sonny Rollins and Wayne Shorter were paid 40k to perform at the Chicago Jazz festival; separate shows of course. I think the year was 2008. Somewhere I saw the contracts posted on a site for both of these concerts. Each then probably had to pay their band out of that 40k, or would those musicians be paid from the event organizers under different contact?
  13. Nonagenarian Jazz Musicians

    Tony Bennett. We can't forget him.
  14. How much music would you say has been lost?

    Clifton Anderson has over 450 sound board recordings of his uncle Sonny Rollins. These are the source of the Road Show series. Hopefully none get discarded.
