  1. BFT 221 Link And Discussion

    #6. Identified? Certainly sounds like Zoot on soprano to me (+ Bucky, as the man said - I guess) #7. Reminded me (in feeling) of things Gigi Gryce did in Paris ...

    #9. Ernie Henry with Wynton Kelly - beautiful. Very close to Bird in feeling - first hearing I thought it was Bird, but that didn't make sense - second hearing said Ernie, and the piano supported that.
  3. It would appear many of these periodicals simply fade away. I did a quick library search, and the British Public Library appears to have a full set, which is something. Still, a little too far for me ...
  4. The recent topic here “DownBeat on archive.org” prompted me to think about the archives of the British publication “Jazz Monthly” (50s-70s), that included such contributors as Max Harrison, Michael James, Alun Morgan, Mark Gardener etc. Would anyone know the fate of these?
  5. Thanks for that! Just experimenting, I hit April 1955 - fascinating. It's fairly easy to use after a few tries ... great resource.
  6. Tell Us How Much You Love Ernie Henry

    Fine player - always interesting - kind of "off kilter". His 'Tadd Walk' solo with Fats in '47 is a classic to these ears. There's quite a bit of him with various Diz big bands - also 2 tracks live with Monk quartet in Philly 1956 ...

    Nice video - he digs in hard, swings hard - if I was in NY I'd be there!
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Any news on future of the great Wave catalogue?
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    No doubt you got a fitting reply ...

    Thanks for this - next time I'm in NY!
  11. Shelly Manne's " 2-3-4" (Impulse, 1962)

    Some great writing and playing
