Seems odd to be giving props to the G-man, but I heard Lorber's band in May of '81 and Gorelick struck me as a strong soprano player and an even stronger flute (!) player.  I didn't then and don't now care for the style although I would say Lorber's band was successful on its own terms.

Believe it ... or  don't!..>>

I wonder what Mr. G sounded like, 25 years ago. What did he play that 
appealed to Miles?

''It goes without saying that FRANK SINATRA could have enlisted the services of 
any accompanist he wanted. The fact that he chose RUSS KASSOFF speaks volumes 
about Kassoff’s unequivocal artistry, which is splendidly showcased on 
SOMEWHERE'' (Jack Bowers-AAJ).  After almost 40 years as a professional 
musician, KASSOFF's first album as a leader features his serene beauty, 
intriguing style, and vivid concepts as an outstanding composer and gifted 
improviser. With MARTIN WIND (bass) and TIM HORNER (drums), ''SOMEWHERE is 
vibrant, compelling, and destined to become an essential component of 
collections that favor jazz trios'' (Paula Edelstein-AMG).  ''Performed with 
class and a fine touch'' (Marion McPartland), ''SOMEWHERE is a masterpiece'' 
(Bucky Pizzarelli). ''I loved the Kassoff CD. It's a beautiful recording. Russ 
is a hell of a good piano player.'' (Dave McKenna)
 
WITH A NEW RESPECT FOR THE MEANING OF ''4TH QUARTER'' 
FROM A RADIO PROGRAMMER'S PERSPECTIVE,
YOUR EMBRACE AND PERSONAL ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF ''SOMEWHERE'' DO ME GREAT HONOR.
Sincerely, Russ.
