So happy you joined! It's sweet, yes?!! Thanks for commenting on the Irv Mesher blog. Looking forward to all your thoughts and input here! And hope you'll share some of your favorite tracks (and I don't mean just "Stanley"!) with us!!
PS Doc put me on a week of antibiotics, just to ward off any chance of Lyme. GOOD! Hate those little 'suckers'!!
Hi Marla, Its nice to meet you here at the Stan Getz Community. Looking foward to lots of great jazz, interesting discussions and good laughs between friends. We can all thank Bev for her joining us together in this cool new Forum. - Lou
Hey Mar! Any party you're at is where I wanna' be :o) Thanks for the invite, the intimate vibe is nice here. I hope to tawlk rather than type soon. Sending love & hugs all the way to Albany to one of the sweetest souls in the universe! Thunder storms in the TX woods, I'd better get offa' here before I get "electramacuted! ZAP!
Oh my goodness Marla... I am FLOORED! Have never seen this video. Sitting here with tears streaming! It's really one of the best. Not only dad, but the quality! So many of the YouTube's are such bad sound that I can't listen to them.
I'm so glad you feel the video is as touching as I do. There's one more tune at home with a different group - I think George Mraz and maybe Albert Dailey....I'll post that when I get home..I believe the tune is "Wave." It is strange, there's only two tunes on the video and both are powerful performances, so I guess two tunes is better than twenty in this case! Then, I'll start going through my hard drives for the other videos. Do you have the White House 1982 performance? Your Dad, Diz, Roy Haynes, Diane Schuur, Chick Corea, Miroslav Vitous? Actually, since it isn't here I can put it up anyway!
You are doing chores while I'm getting ready to go to day two of jazz video-a-thon world. Home tomorrow.
Since I'm only a few hours away from you in driving time, I'm assuming you are experiencing the same magnificent weather.
Anyway, I'm not quite sure how to share this video with the rest of the group, but hopefully they'll all "mosey over" to my page!
I'm so sorry...those chores are "a-cawlin!!!!" Enjoy the weather and yes, while the video quality isn't as good on the White House video, the music is heavenly, so I'll work on that when I get home. Yes, it is "hosted" by Itzhak Perlman. Perlman even "sits in" with the guys!
