Quakertown was originally settled by members of the Religious Society of Friends, or Quakers. The settlement was not officially known as Quakertown until its first post office opened in 1803.

Lots of the new thin Oreos.

Finally got a chance to read Cab Calloway's autobiography; seems the feud with Dizzy wasn't as bad as all that. Or at least Cab mellowed with age & embraced the bop. ... still, i'm sure CC would have been a bastard to work for.

Brilliant dude, though.

@Rev: I would love to read that.

A little Satie in there, maybe. Or Debussy.
Avatar Mon. 1/30/17 11:43am Joe McG:

@Brian: The cool thing is that he was playing both pianos on that track. He would record one and then play another one to the track he just recorded. Just like Leon Sash on last week's show! :)

Joe, saw Bill Evans shortly before his demise. So intense, head a few inches above the keyboard. In a world somewhere I cannot imagine.

Joe, your job is to play the best possible unheard Wedding Present cut so that I don't have to seek out, find, somehow purchase, and most of all listen to the whole goddamm 10CD set for the best cut, you've done it all for me. And then you play it, of course. Eternally grateful, Will in Pawtucket
