NYTimes Oct 18th "The Song Decoders"

Ah, Sunday moring on a beautiful Colorado sunny 70 degree day reading the magazine section. What an interesting artical about the next "new" thing in music, decoding songs. Stan's name is all over the artical. Good reading, even if I don't quite get it.

Beautiful email about Stan...

I received an email from a lovely lady in Scandinavia about Stan. It was so sweet and also so revealing as to who Stan really was, that I asked if she would allow me to post her email. Christina graciously agreed... following is what she wrote:

And again.. Thank you so much Christina!

" Hi Bev

I want you to know that meeting Stan back then was one of the greatest experiences of my life. He was very kind to me and his hospitality was outstanding. During the two…

One of our members, Karl Sterling, just informed me that we had a couple "colorful girls" spamming on here in an ugly fashion. So sorry!

If anyone receives any spam, please let me know so I can AX them! ((-;

The Power of Prayer & Hope In Difficult Times...

Here is a simple yet powerful message to remember

when we are facing a difficult time in life...

When we pray and have hope for a better tomorrow,

it does wonders and gives us strength and the ability

to handle what's happening today. We just have to

remember to take one step at a time...and keep things

light and simple in present that we will be able

to notice and appreciate all the little miracles that are

happening… Continue

"I first met Karl Sterling when his parents brought him to a Stan Kenton Orchestra gig in upstate New York. He was a young drummer. This was 1972. Come to think of it, I was a young drummer at the time, too ... but Karl was younger! Karl's parents were justifiably proud of their son and how well he played. Some thirty five-plus years later, I'm the one who is feeling proud of how well Karl plays: proud that he stayed the course with his drumming, and proud that he matured into such a terrific… Continue

Birthdays: Stan and Sonny

We are almost there. (-:

So we have ample time to give them our wishes and reminisce.

February 2 1927.

Happy Birthday Stan.

Thank you for all the beautiful legacy that you left us.

All your music is a constant source of joy.

Truly a master.

I am also reminded that this is also Sonny Stitt's birthday. February 2 1924

There must be something special about that date (-:

Sonny was very close to Stan during his JATP days. They made it a… Continue

Stan Getz honors Bill Evans, San Francisco circa 1985

I lived in S.F. and visited many of the clubs there that are long extinct. When Bill Evans died there was an impromptu (spontaneous) gathering of jazz bretheran (players and enthusiasts) at Bimbo's on Columbus Ave. in North Beach. First and last time I saw Stan. He had his huge, beautiful white husky there circulating with him throughout this saddened but exhilerated crowd...He played like Stan plays......pulling the soul out of body and heart from heart-beat...glorious, emotional and… Continue
