He was a cool, level-headed guy when he ran the BNBB. A group of us members of the BNBB met with him in a bar in NYC ca. summer of 1999. If memory serves me right, it was in the Time Cafe, above the Fez club (both are fifteen years gone now) on Lafayette and Great Jones. He paid for the drinks with his corporate Blue Note card, which was very generous. Kevin, aka Bresna has a better memory than me. He surely can add some more details. http://www.feznyc.com/index.php The BNBB purge was in the very early March of 2003. In my recollection, the precipitating factor was the noticeable negative feedback in some threads on Norah Jones, who was the financial manna from heaven for the label. I loved going to the BNBB, it was the Wild West of both the jazz fans and musicians shooting breeze and taking no prisoners. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
