How wonderful being friends here!!
Is it morning over at your place already - or is it you who can't sleep :-) Here it's 8:15 in the morning. Of to the airport it an hour.
Talk to you later.
hello Tim. Forgive me for the delay here...I think I am too busy making a living to take the time to live..lol;) Yes..that will need some adjusting:) I just visited your Myspace and your style of playing is wonderful. It amazes me the different sounds each indiviudal can bring forth out of what i consider to be one, of two instruments, that are the absolete creme de la creme....the other being the piano. Thank you for your friendship as well as sharing the blessing of your talent.
I'm a friend of David Valdez's and I, too was floored by the Jimmy Mosher motherload. I was literally in tears as I listened. When I first started to get out to hear jazz in the late 60's/early 70's, my very first jazz "love" was Buddy Rich's big band. Since I played alto at the time, I developed huge hero worship of Jimmy's playing, even at the young age of 13 - I knew I was hearing someone very unique/special. So, to have these treasures now is somewhere beyond priceless..I know you understand!
Nice to be part of this group, as well as JaiJai's Jazz Network. I don't usually socialize this much, but through joining all of the jazz groups, newsgroups, etc., well, the shy thing melts away a bit. Are you referring to the Getz at the White House that I uploaded or another Getz video uploaded by someone else that I may have missed?
