56 posts in this topic

IT'S NOT UNCOMMON FOR ME TO FLAVOR MY BREAKFAST WITH A PINCH OF VINYL.

TODAY'S FLAVORINGS CAME FROM 2 MUSICAL NAMESAKES, DAVID ROSE AND DAVID ROSE.

HOW MANY MUSICAL NAMESAKES COME TO MIND??

Does Yusef Lateef count in your Bill Evans list?

There's a Steve Davis (bass) and Steve Davis (trombone). I once saw a drummer with that name playing at Visiones. Don't know much about him.

Lee Morgan (trumpet) and Lee Morgan (bass).

Bertrand.

Bertrand.

No. Having read his autobiography, Gentle Giant, I can't find reason to refer to him as "Bill Evans" in any phase of his life. See, for example, page 1. http://books.google.com/books?id=Y0LAq1KAepEC&printsec=frontcover&dq=yusef+lateef+biography&source=bl&ots=x5-4TyVvCg&sig=yKtEhRfJ0sl-oBKfOSWqy914JcM&hl=en&sa=X&ei=ctdIUIb6HYT20gGqmYCwDw&ved=0CC0Q6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=yusef%20lateef%20biography&f=false

(I hope that link's okay)

Maybe I missed it, because the fable goes on and on.

There was also a Benny Goodman, alto player, who was in Muggsy Spanier's big band. I think Muggsy hired him just to say "Benny Goodman plays for me..."

Kenton, definitely, and a really good player at that.
