In another life, I'd like to play vibes. And with little foundation, somehow think I'd be more suited to that instrument choice than many others. Cuz in another life, I can just say it's so.

Was just thinking the other day about unpleasant bastards other musicians worked for -- Benny Goodman, James Brown...

Doug Schulkind:

@Little Danny
Indeed there was. Saw Getz perform in a smallish but famous club in D.C. in the late '70s/early '80s. Stood front and center stage while soloing, but then remained there, mugging with audience members while his bandmates were soloing. They were clearly miffed, but betrayed nothing while the boss was facing them. It was the rudest thing I ever saw on a bandstand. He deserved a cymbal in the back of the neck.

But there is that story of Benny Goodman refusing to agree with the movie studio to portray the black members of his orchestra as waiters who happen join the orchestra rather than professional musicians.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm

Heard Joel Grey interview the other night talking about his dad, Mickey Katz, who'd been with Spike Jones also doing his own Yiddish adaptations of Home on the Range and all kinds of things. Perfect maybe for a Danny or Uncle or Drummer to dig into...or maybe been dug already.

@melinda sorry. I got excited. We're all having an actual winter in Cascadia so I just assumed. It's been below freezing here for a week and it's like climate change is real or something.

@Little Danny and the theremin, in the right hands.

No prob, ifny. Below freezing in Vancouver sounds extreme, it even feels kind of weird here after the warm autumn.
