Sorry if this has already been posted earlier in the thread but, John McLaughlin

Is it Mc-Lock-lin or Mc-Loff-lin?

Cheers.

Mc-Lock-lin

Depends which side of the border you are on I guess (Scottish, not Watford Gap :D ). I always thought it was the latter.

That's how my friend Danny Padmore who played bass with him in his early days pronounces it.

Last name is rather easy Pann-ass-yeah 

 

First name not so much as both syllables do not have the same equivalency in english , The hu is pronounced the Hu of huge  but with more accent on the u like they say it  spanish as in the cu of cuando , the ghes is similmar to the gh  is pronounced the same like ghetto but the e sounds like the way they pronounce it in German

Are you thinking of these tracks?

Miles Davis and Tadd Dameron in Paris 1949

It's not Panassie (who despised bebop) there--announcers "unknown" and "Maurice Cullaz" (rather prominent voice in French jazz radio/criticism circles, apparently.  Brownie could undoubtedly fill all of this in much more).

Probably so...but I have a memory (maybe just of a dream) where some guy was actually doing the verbal equivalent of an Ira Gitler liner note review.as the performance unfolded...is there a French version of one of the Esquire concerts that has something like this? The guy was really breathless, like it was a prizefight.

Hopefully, though, it's all a dream. Or a nightmare. Either way...

How about Tim Hagans?

I’ve always said “HAH-guhns”. But I vaguely remember (later) learning it’s actually “HAY-guhns” — but I’ve never been able to break myself of the first way I started saying it probably going on 30 years ago.

Or I suppose another option might be with a short ‘a’ like in ‘hat’. In any case, I’m practically positive the stress is on the first syllable.

I did hear Tim once, just once, back around 1995 in Lawrence Kansas, in Joe Lovano’s piano-less quartet (with Anthony Cox on bass, and I forget the drummer). No idea what the stage announcements that night were (or I’d know now).
