Bonjour Gérard,

Désolé de ne pas avoir répondu plus tôt, je suis parti une semaine dans le sud avec des amis musiciens pour en retrouver d'autres de la région de Marseille et nous avons fait notre boeuf quotidien.

J'ai regardé avec beaucoup de plaisir tes tableaux. Merci au nom de tous les timbrés de Stan Getz... :)
J'essaye de mettre des morceaux un peu plus rares que les autres et que nos camarades de la communauté n'ont pas déjà mis sur leur page.

A bientôt

Hi Gérard

Sorry for not replying earlier, I was in the south of France during the last week with friends musicians to meet other musicians in the region of Marseille and we played each day.

I watched with great pleasure your paintings. Thank you on behalf of those who are nuts about Stan Getz [This last sentence is not a good translation: it's a joke with timbre/stamp and timbré de/nuts about]
I'm trying to put pieces a little more rare than others and that our friends in the community have not already uploaded to their page.

Take care

Bonsoir Pascal,

Merci pour ce message qui me touche car je suis aussi un "timbré" de Stan Getz, c'est mon saxophoniste préféré, celui qui me touche le plus, c'est le premier que j'ai écouté étant enfant...à l'époque où le Jazz s'écoutait aussi dans certains commerces en musique d'ambiance! Surtout dans les casinos, ces petits supermarchés...! J'ai toujours rêvé de jouer comme lui mais c'est raté, il est apprendre en autodidacte n'est pas sensationnel mais j'éprouve un réel plaisir à jouer de mon saxo.
Merci aussi pour les compliments concernant mes tableaux...là aussi, j'ai peu de prétention, je m'amuse et j'y prends du plaisir, c'est l'essentiel!!
J'ai vécu près de Marseille pendant cinq ans, j'étais gendarme à Rousset sur Arc près de la Montagne Sainte-Victoire , chère à Cézanne!! J'ai eu la chance de voir Marcel Zannini, un autre sax bien connu dans ces Bouches-du-Rhône...un très beau département!
Bravo Pascal pour les morceaux que tu as mis en ligne car je ne les connaissais pas!
A très bientôt de te lire!!!
Gérard... P.S : Bravo pour le jeu de mot à propos de "timbré" très bien trouvé!

Good evening Pascal,
Thank you for this message which makes me a great pleasure! I am also a big fan of Stan Getz as you said "stamped" (Good joke!), it is my favorite saxophonist, the one who gets me most, it is the first one whom I listened when I was a child when the Jazz was also listened in certain supermarkets in background music! Especially in "casinos", these small supermarkets!
I always dreamed to play as him but it is missed, he is unique and to learn in self-taught is not sensational but I get a real pleasure to play my sax.
Thank you also for the compliments concerning my paintings, I have not enough claim, I enjoy myself and I take some pleasure there, it is the main part!!
I lived near Marseille during five years, I was a gendarme ( police officer) in Rousset near the Mountain saint-Victoire, dear to Cézanne!! I had the chance to see Marcel Zannini, another French wellknown sax player in this Bouches-du-Rhône a very beautiful area from France.
Bravo Pascal for the fragments which you put on-line !! Take care !!

hi Rubiano ! pleasure to meet you. I haven't been to Europe for quite awhile since Nice in the 80s. How is the jazz scene out there these days ? My daughter who is helping me archive my life in music recently spent 2 months outside of Paris and she absolutely loved France. She works for a major movie star who was shooting a film there. best,Glenn

thanks Rubiano and the painting of Stan is superb and captures his spirit and i am sure he would of liked it very much. Thank you for your wonderful offer and i would like that very much. I haven't had a painting done since my very first album live at Eddie Condon's and the same artist did my Jazz Christmas Album with Milt Hinton and Maxinne Sullivan. I will upload FYI it but it might difficult to see. best,

p.s. by the way being in France i am sure you know Sidney Bechet's music. I was part of a band for several years with Bob Wilber called "The Bechet Legacy" and we did several tours in Europe and several albums. There might be a tune on You Tube and i have a whole concert at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C that we did. Sidney's songs were wonderful music with a real french flavor when he was living in France. Glenn
