Well, one way to look objectively at this issue is to use an analogy, and as 
I'm a baseball junkie I'll use a baseball one.

It certainly would not be appropriate to compare young Phillies slugger Ryan 
Howard to Babe Ruth at this early stage in Howard's career, but I think it 
would be fair to compare the two at comparable stages of their careers, 
which would give Mr. Howard a valid claim to be Ruth's equal at that moment 
in time.

If one then makes the same comparison with  Ms. Gambini and say Ella's early 
career with Chick Webb, then I think the comparison is valid.

This week's sponsor:  Russ Kassoff - ''SOMEWHERE'' (2006) - RHK JAZZ


''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).
