Michael Weiss's Achievements

  1. Martin Milgrim can do it. He has no formal musical training, never played an instrument but identified every tune I soloed over, - standards, bebop tunes, didn't matter.

  3. Thanks Gheorghe. That melody Lou plays at the end is not Wee. It's something else.
  4. Spoke to Lou yesterday. He sounded good. He's coming up to NYC on Monday for a birthday event at Dizzy's. A cassette I was just listening to had something left at the end of the tape that must have been recorded over earlier. I recognized it as a gig in NJ from 1986 of Lou, Al Harewood and myself. Just a snippet, but a moment preserved... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QL6ZC0TxGHw
  5. https://youtu.be/AiOZkqbE78o Uploaded from a cassette I've had since the mid 1980s. FWIW Doesn't sound anything like Hank Mobley. More corroboration on Robin Kelly's date of June 10, 1955: https://ctva.biz/US/TalkShow/TonightShow_1954-55_SteveAllen_s1.htm
  6. Lou Donaldson played an unaccompanied "Thanks For the Memory" at Johnny Griffin's memorial. Carol Sloane singing "Isn't It a Pity" accompanied by Roland Hanna at Tommy Flanagan's memorial. I played at a lot of memorial services but a couple stand out: playing "Easy to Remember" with Joe Wilder, Buster Williams, and Tootie Heath at Percy Heath's memorial at the Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, and playing "Saturn" at John Gilmore's.
