Sat. 8/13/11 9:25am David:
For some reason I've always thought Boz Scaggs should have covered this song.

You probably know about Hampton Hawes's album of spirtuals. And of course the Shepp duo record wtih.... ah.. Horace Parlan.
Sat. 8/13/11 10:20am Peter K.:
"Jackie-ing" changes = "When the Saints Go Marching In"? Sorry, I'm just not hearing it. But that may just be my harmonic ignorance showing. Anyway, great show as always!
Sat. 8/13/11 10:23am tomB:
I hear it -- Saints is in Monk's line, but only reflected in the Horns and at a different speed than Monk is playing. But I would not have heard it w/o the tip.
Sat. 8/13/11 10:39am Peter K.:
@tomB: Then it's not based on the *chords* of "Saints," right? Maybe Bob didn't say that, but that's what I always assume is meant when a jazz piece is said to be "based on" a standard tune. Whatever. Good tune, in any case.

"Skate Now" was released two years after Riverside went bankrupt. The label got taken over by a bank and didn't do much more than reissue old titles and put out some stuff that had been recorded but not released under the old regime. This single was a one-shot as far as I know. Did Lou Courtney ever release anything else?
