  1. Everything Sonny.

    Sonny Rollins on Fox News. "If it wasn't for music, life would be shit." (Monk)/. That's gospel to my ears.
  2. Wayne Shorter

    I have more respect for Wayne now, not that I didn't before, after reading this article. It mentions he had a 14 year old developmentally disabled daughter who died in 1986, and his wife, who was killed in 1996 in a TWA plane crash. Two big losses like that would have broke me emotionally. I'm sure he channeled those losses into his music. You have to have an outlet to vent your sorrow. https://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/music/wayne-shorter-at-80-catching-his-second-wind/2013/09/19/1b42e312-1f0d-11e3-8459-657e0c72fec8_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.9391dad3abb3
  3. Wayne Shorter

    I didn't know Wayne Shorter is in a wheelchair. We all get old. I have to remember he is in his 80's. "Wayne Shorter on being recognized in a most deserving way at the Kennedy Center Honors this weekend."
  4. Just Sonny and Benny are lest from that day, but the music of those that left remain. I wonder were they placed in any particular order? Golson and Farmer are standing next to each other. Both founders of the Jazztet. Marian McPartland with Mary Lou Williams. McPartland use to mention on her Piano Jazz radio program she was friends with Mary Lou. Both Monk and Rollins wore light colored suits. They wanted to stand out, feeling everyone else would wear dark suits. There was a film back in the 1980’s or 1990’s about this day. I have to find a copy and watch it again.

  11. Anyone else enjoy Roland Hanna?

    I have the two Mingus ones and I enjoy those. Now I forgot about the Mel Lewis and Thad Jones records.
  12. Anyone else enjoy Roland Hanna?

    I've been in a Sir Roland Hanna mood and played all the CD's I have of him over the past few days. Are there any session where he is a sideman that you would recommend? I have most of his sessions as a leader and want to expand out to sessions he wasn't the leader.
