That was a big hit on Radio Disney. It sounded great on AM radio (yes, we got Radio Disney on AM!!!!), my daughter loved it.

Zev doesn't seem like someone I'd want to hang out with, but his relentless self-promotion has helped Resonance and should help BN get some attention for whatever they put out.  There's stuff still in the vaults I'd like to see out (I've heard Morgan's Blues for Mr. Tatum and I think it's fine) and live recordings of combos with no official live recordings would be nice too.  So, I'm guardedly optimistic.

Zev seemed like a pretty ok guy when I heard him give a talk at UDC around the time that the Larry Young thing came out.

Not somebody I'd necessarily click with immediately, but he wasn't terribly off-putting either.

To be honest, I don't think I've ever met a fellow jazz fan that wasn't at least a little quirky in the personality dept (and I'm sure anyone who's met me would include ME in that same quirky dept too).

He seemed like an only "semi-oddball" jazz enthusiast -- and I'm sure a few of us here are very much in that same vein.

I'm appreciative of the work he's doing, and I'll try and support his work with my wallet to the extent I can, as my interests dictate.

If he can unearth anything else as amazing as all those Larry Young sides, man, he's doing damn important work there, and more power to him.

The cat's gotta hustle. To the degree that turns him into a "hustler", well...not my world, if you know what I mean.

Glad to not be a part of it, assume you are too.

He’s a go getter, probably an A personality. People like him are used to getting things done. Hopefully he can find sessions worth bringing out.

Being "around it" (i.e. - several degrees of separation) to the extent that I have been is close enough for me. I'm sympathetic to the need for the hustle, but it's not for me, no.

And I sometimes wonder how much of any of this self-imposed need to "be somebody" is rooted in a fear of the universe instead of a trust in it. Better (and more ancient) minds than mine have yet to answer that one with absolute certainty!

I'll tell you what, though - Zev Feldman and others in his world, they ain't no Boris Rose, nor will they be, not if they keep going like this. That alone should make them at least a little humble when they're alone by themselves.

Yeah, he seemed a little Type A when I saw him, but not the most Type A of anyone I've known (and worked with).

Honestly, me and Type A's are like oil and water. I'm sure I drive them crazy, and I damn well know they sure as hell drive ME crazy.

*Especially* Type A *MEN*. I worked with a ton of Type A guys in my first real job out of college, in a corporate environment, and it just about drove me off a cliff. I'm much more fond of Type A women, including working with and for them. My wife's kind of Type A too. I've got no problem with strong-willed women, long as our values are in decent alignment, etc. Some of my best friends and work colleagues have been Type A women, matter of fact.

Zev wasn't that bad, but he's clearly a go-getter, and can be aggressive when he wants to (or if he forgets not to be).

Probably need someone like that, though, to make some of this stuff happen.

I worked in a corporate environment so I know what you mean. I’m probably a high B but my wife is definitely an A. You may not always like As but they do get things done.

Always have, at least someones with some of that some of the time. Not all of it all the time, that's for sure. I've known plenty of "quiet" people who get things done quite well.

Substance over style!

Even if it means getting somebody to do it for them so they can present it.

I have a "type" for them - WEASEL. I avoid them at any and all costs.

I think you have neatly summarized what bothered me.
