Thanks for the reminder.

Is anyone playing his new big band record on OmniTone? Would love to have that.

Just dove into "Lee Konitz, Conversations on the Improvier's Art" from
University of Michigan Press. This Andy Hamilton book...oral biography
worked so well for Ira Gitler way back...it is the best format for
jazz. As in, There I said it. This book is simply great so far. Steve
Lacy wrote "Esteem" for Johnny Hodges. Respect is the word which keeps
coming through reading Konitz.

Happy Birthdayly.

LeeK!
