That's a nice one! 

Have seen Lanny twice: once in the Bill Holman orchestra at the Wigan Jazz Festival and once sitting in with a local band in a club near here. Love his alto playing!

We're bound to lead the nations,

as out motto's "Go ahead!"

And tell the foreign paupers

that our people are well fed.

For the nations must remember

Uncle Sam is not a fool,

for the people do the voting

and the children go to school.

I was there and a big jazz fan already in the 70´s and the great thing was, each year came a new Mingus album on Atlantic, where he had the recording contract.

When I saw it first at my record dealer it was a bit strange with fusion guitarists on it, but naturally I purchased it. It´s great and the long track "Three Or Four Shades of Blues" was played on almost all live performances......

Chico Freeman Quintet featuring Arthur Blythe - Focus (Contemporary, 1995)
with George Cables, Santi Debriano, and Yoron Israel

Has this ever happened to you?  You hear a record, and it isn't what you wanted it to be. (Doesn't matter why.  It could be just about anything.)  So you're disappointed.  Then, time passes and you listen again.  And maybe even a few more times after that.  And then, suddenly, for some reason, you're actually able to hear the music for what it is, rather than what you expected or hoped it would be.  It's as if someone turned on a light.  ... That's a nice feeling, finally letting go of those notions and getting to where the music actually is.  ... It doesn't always happen, of course.  Sometimes, you don't make it, and sometimes the music doesn't make it.  But it sure does feel good when that pleasurable understanding/alignment thing happens.  The feeling of "Oh, that's it. There it is."

I really dig that.
