Sweet! Thanks, JG!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 5:52pm Jeff Golick:

Needless to say, loved the documentary on this photo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 5:53pm Gary:

I wonder if whoever lives there now knows. Just Google-mapped it and it's a really beautiful block, btw
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 5:54pm Doug Schulkind:

Brownstones going for multimillions, no doubt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 5:55pm Gary:

Pretty much, yep

I have never seen Doug post that pic before, never!

I've waited 56 years to do so, NGH!

Hello everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 6:11pm Gary:

56 years since 57 people posed in 58?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 6:13pm Doug Schulkind:

Sorry to burst the bubble, but the Harlem Hamfats were from Chicago. Speaking of the Chicago Cubs, HELLO UNCLE MICHAEL!
Avatar Tue. 8/12/14 6:20pm northguineahills:

woohoo, my interviews aren't until thursday and Friday, I won't miss amanda!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 6:22pm Doug Schulkind:

Amanda prerecorded the show since she's on vacation, but she will still be live on the playlist tomorrow. What a mensch!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 6:30pm Jeff Golick:

Love this tune/album/dude.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 6:31pm Gary:

@NGH, I had a brutal interview on the phone today. I felt less like I was applying for a job than being put on trial.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 6:31pm Doug Schulkind:

Here is what I wrote about this album on my Favorites of 2005 list:

When will the world realize that William Parker is a genius? Will it happen this year? This decade? During his lifetime? How can an artist with as prolific and diverse a body of work as his still remain a relative anonymity? No composer in jazz gets closer to the pumping heart of the music's lifeblood. No bandleader and organizer is more selfless in the service of collective self-expression. Few instrumentalists are as versatile, or improvisers as generous. Parker has performed on more than two hundred records, and this latest, with his outrageously tight working quartet, is simply one of the best.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 6:36pm Doug Schulkind:

The review at All About Jazz gave this recording four and half stars. Half star? Are you kidding? Did they take off a half-star for poor penmanship? Tardiness? I mean, what the hell? I hate (well, um, gulp, most) jazz reviews.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 6:42pm Jeff Golick:

@Doug: I find I can't read all the way through any review these days.
Avatar Tue. 8/12/14 6:42pm northguineahills:

@Gary: Been there. Normally, I tell them I'm not interested when an interview goes that direction, b/c you know the working conditions will suck. These, days, however, I'm somewhat desperate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 6:47pm Doug Schulkind:

@Jeff Golick
Hmmm, where can one go for smart, conscientious writing about creative improvised music? Is there such a destination? OUT there?
Avatar Tue. 8/12/14 6:51pm glenn:

i usually go to rolling stone. *ducks, hides behind jann wenner*
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 6:53pm Doug Schulkind:

Ducks are hiding behind Jann Wenner? Silly ducks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 6:53pm Jeff Golick:

I will say that one of my favorite reference books of all time remains the Rolling Stone Record Guide (blue cover).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 6:53pm Gary:

Still love this song
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 6:54pm Doug Schulkind:

Forever and ever, amen, Gary.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 6:54pm Jeff Golick:

Always appreciated how that book validated my extreme dislike of the Doors **ducks, hides behind the tombstones of Pere Lachaise**
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/12/14 6:56pm Doug Schulkind:

I could keep this Harlem thing going for about 27 more hours. But you probably have to go pee and eat. (Please wash your hands.)
