Hi, all
I was born, raised and lived in THE Bronx for almost half my life...as far 
as I can recall it is THE Bronx. I never heard anyone refer to it as Bronx 
except on postage as in "Bronx, NY"
Interesting,...if you lived in THE South Bronx or THE North Bronx also. I 
don't recall ever hearing folks say I live in THE south Brooklyn...it was 
south Brooklyn (if at all).
Also, living in Manhattan, for a long time now, most say Carn (eg)ie 
Hall...the eg is pronounced like "egg" and the emphasis is on the first 
syllable CAR -negg-ee. And yes, someone did ask me how to get there and yes, 
I did answer "Practice"...couldn't resist!!

Gotta get my "two-cents plain" in...with an egg-cream on the side.

> In 1639, Jonas Bronck arrived in the New World. He purchased a 500 acre
> tract of land east of Harlem between the Harlem River and the Aquehung,
> which was the Native American name for the river that flows through the
> center of the Bronx. Bronck built a house and began to farm the land. The

> began to refer to it as "Broncksland." In a similar fashion, the Aquehung
> was soon known as Bronck's River. In time, the spelling was changed to
> "Bronx," and eventually the entire area adopted the name.
>
> Unlike the other boroughs, The Bronx is always referred to as "The Bronx,"

> *NEA Jazz Masters: A Dizzying Array of All-Stars*
>
> By Mike Joyce
> Special to The Washington Post
> Monday, September 17, 2007; C05
>
> Leave it to Paquito D'Rivera
> <http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/related/topic/Paquito+D%27Rivera?tid=informline>
> to get the biggest laugh during the Duke Ellington
> <http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/related/topic/Duke+Ellington?tid=informline>
> Jazz Festival at the Lincoln Theatre over the weekend.
>
> Participating in the NEA Jazz Masters concert Saturday night, the
> Cuban-born reedman joked that he had written a bossa nova for Dizzy
> Gillespie
> <http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/related/topic/Dizzy+Gillespie?tid=informline>
> because "I knew how much he loved the music of illegal aliens." The
> ridiculous soon gave way to the sublime, however, as D'Rivera unfurled a
> lovely clarinet-limned melody that he said was alternately known as "I
> Remember Dizzy" and "A Night in Mexico City
> <http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/related/topic/Mexico+City?tid=informline>."
>
> The Friday and Saturday night concerts delivered other big rewards,
> including plenty of large-ensemble delights. Both the Smithsonian Jazz
> Masterworks Orchestra and the Dizzy Gillespie All-Star Big Band
> contributed resounding performances -- swinging, shouting and soulful by
> turns -- during Saturday's Jazz Masters celebration. David Baker, who
> conducted the SJMO, and Slide Hampton, who filled the same role in the
> Gillespie ensemble, devised some of the pieces, while others were
> composed or arranged by the likes of Benny Carter, George Russell and
> Dennis Mackrel. Carter's gorgeous "Blue Star," performed by the SJMO,
> was among the wonderfully evocative treats, its dreamy theme and noirish
> tints instantly erasing all memory of the rock era.
>
> And as for big moments, none was bigger (or more moving) than when
> pianist Hank Jones and trumpeter Clark Terry were awarded the festival's
> Lifetime Achievement Awards. Afterward, the two jazz titans teamed up
> with bassist George Mraz and charmed the large crowd with a cozy,
> impromptu performance of "The Nearness of You."
>
> Besides D'Rivera, Baker, Hampton and Jones
> <http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/related/topic/Hank+Jones?tid=informline>,
> the lineup of National Endowment of the Arts Jazz Masters included the
> ever-youthful and engaging saxophonists Jimmy Heath and James Moody.
> Playing tenor sax, Heath was heard to particularly good advantage during
> the All-Star band's performance of his Gillespie-inspired composition,
> "Without You, No Me." Moody, meanwhile, revealed the heretofore unknown
> link between scatting and yodeling during a freewheeling arrangement of
> Gillespie's "Blue 'n' Boogie," a performance that also provided a
> spirited showcase for the gifted vocalist Roberta Gambarini. Cubop,
> salsa, samba and Latin funk sounds filled the air Friday night when the
> festival saluted Gillespie with an all-star tribute. The turnout was
> disappointing, but the audience was game, eager to clap out a clave beat
> when called upon and quick to reward the musicians with standing ovations.
>
> Dubbed "In the Footsteps of Dizzy," the program prominently featured
> five of Gillespie's proteges: pianist Danilo Perez, trombonist Steve
> Turre, trumpeter Claudio Roditi, saxophonist David Sanchez and trumpeter
> Roy Hargrove.
>
> All but Hargrove participated in an opening set laced with signature
> touches: The Panama
> <http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/related/topic/Panama?tid=informline>-born
> Perez contrasted light-fingered melodic variations with crashing chords
> on Stevie Wonder
> <http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/related/topic/Stevie+Wonder?tid=informline>'s
> "Overjoyed"; Turre punctuated a burnished rendition of "Con Alma" with a
> solo that made both melodic and rhythmic use of conch shells; Sanchez
> moved through the debut performance of his multi-faceted piece "Cultural
> Survival" with the juggernaut drive associated with fellow tenor
> saxophonist Sonny Rollins
> <http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/related/topic/Sonny+Rollins?tid=informline>;
> and Roditi, on fluegelhorn, had no difficulty sustaining an air of
> glowing lyricism. Contributing rhythmic drive and nuance all the while
> were bassist Ben Street, drummer Adam Cruz and the remarkably
> resourceful percussionist Pernell Saturnino.
>
> Hargrove capped Friday's show on an exhilarating note. In full command
> of his horn and often projecting a searing tone, the trumpeter played
> with such lung-depleting intensity at times that the effort nearly
> knocked him off his feet. The trumpeter found a worthy mate and foil in
> alto saxophonist Justin Robinson, especially when it came time for the
> quintet to forge a hard-bop frontline or for the two musicians to pass
> the baton back and forth during breathlessly paced choruses.
>
> Hargrove and Robinson also performed with the Gillespie All-Star Band on
> Saturday night. Indeed, they helped the ensemble bring the Lincoln
> Theatre bashes to a close with an incendiary arrangement of the
> Gillespie-Gil Fuller anthem "Things to Come."
