Mc-Lock-lin

Depends which side of the border you are on I guess (Scottish, not Watford Gap :D ). I always thought it was the latter.

That's how my friend Danny Padmore who played bass with him in his early days pronounces it.

:g  Actually, it's for an upcoming Night Lights "Bebop Comes To Europe" program, and one of the musical tracks I'm using, by Hubert Fol and His Bebop Minstrels (inc. Kenny Clarke), is titled "Assy Panassy."  Whomever could they possibly be referring to? ^_^

Was he the guy who can be heard giving play-by-play and color commentary during a performance? I'd hope not, but there's something somewhere where soembody does that, and it's funny, weird, and irritating as fuck all at one.

Are you thinking of these tracks?

Miles Davis and Tadd Dameron in Paris 1949

It's not Panassie (who despised bebop) there--announcers "unknown" and "Maurice Cullaz" (rather prominent voice in French jazz radio/criticism circles, apparently.  Brownie could undoubtedly fill all of this in much more).

Last name is rather easy Pann-ass-yeah 

 

First name not so much as both syllables do not have the same equivalency in english , The hu is pronounced the Hu of huge  but with more accent on the u like they say it  spanish as in the cu of cuando , the ghes is similmar to the gh  is pronounced the same like ghetto but the e sounds like the way they pronounce it in German

Probably so...but I have a memory (maybe just of a dream) where some guy was actually doing the verbal equivalent of an Ira Gitler liner note review.as the performance unfolded...is there a French version of one of the Esquire concerts that has something like this? The guy was really breathless, like it was a prizefight.

Hopefully, though, it's all a dream. Or a nightmare. Either way...
