Hey Larry,

Terrific read and range of selections, as always.  It's great that JazzTimes 
let's these comments run to such considerable length, and that Pelt fills 
the space with a knowing appreciation of the records, even those he's not 
familiar with.  His comments about Nat Adderley's good feeling and Clark 
Terry's impeccable solos are beautiful.  That he perceives elements of 
anti-feeling among some players today-- that seems endemic to the age and a 
music that's constantly in search of audience, whereas Cannon and Nat played 
"music of the people" because there was always a crowd eager for their brand 
of "greasy soul."   But times and tastes have changed, so I'm grateful that 
great players like Pelt are still trying to make something soulful happen, 
even if it requires paying "tribute."

The Before & After piece I did recently with Jeremy Pelt is now on the 
JazzTimes website:

Just curious what people think of his comments, especially those regarding 
track #12?
