I wish he would keep his website up to date. I have no idea if he's touring anywhere near my area. Sonny Fortune is the same way.

Barry's Bop Quintet (so called because the three hornmen met at a Barry Harris masterclass in Rome) at Malcolm Frazer's house last Sunday afternoon. Trumpeter Lewis R Taylor is aged 21 and guitarist Jack Kinsella 19 and both are students at Birmingham Conservatoire. So there's hope for the younger generation after all!

In Chicago for a couple of days and saw that Benny Golson is at the Jazz Showcase.  I am going to try to catch the 8 o'clock show tonight!

I'm going to see Pharoah in October at the Rialto Theater here in Atlanta. Really looking forward to it! :)

It was nice but even 5 years ago, you got about 50% talk, 50% music with Benny (and Lou Donaldson).  Now it is about 25% music.  Still definitely worth it to see one of the last giants (and these at least were new stories for me).  He did play "Horizon Ahead" off a fairly recently album, and the rest were his standards - "Whisper Not" and "I Remember Clifford."  They closed with Coltrane's Mr PC, taken at a fairly fast clip.

Amazing how Sonny Fortune used to (and sound likes he still does) appear unexpectedly at gigs (at least to me). I had a couple of experiences like that when he was with Elvin Jones. Charles Tolliver sideman appearances were similar.
