Just a message in case anyone can let me have their tab for Monks Straight No Chaser. I am using Don Julins version from his Vibe CD as my reference. I think I have the basis, but there seems to be quite a few chromatic runs, where Im not sure if Ive got it completely right. Nice tune for the mandolin Thanks.

Nice tribute to Jerome Cooper. Did you not have a copy of Unpredictability of Predictability? The composition 'The Crouch Opinion' was a response to the review of Unpredictability of Predictability that Stanley wrote for The Village Voice. It was originally a piece for solo percussion that Jerome arranged for that particular album and sextet.

You're right; I don't have that album. I wish I did.
