With billows and blasts from choirs and orchesters
Buskers and talkers
Big bands and squawkers,
the Stork Club has retained its qualities of decaying elegance and dwindling significance since the late 1950s.
August 30, 2020: BLUE BOSSA BIRTHDAY
Celebrating the birthday of the shamefully under-recognized jazz trumpeter Kenny Dorham, born 96 years ago today. Sweet, earthy, often gentle tones set this jazz great apart from the other greats. He played with Bird and Diz, Bud and Monk, on through modern up-and-comers Joe Henderson, Andrew Hill and Clifford Jordan. A birthday tribute to a first-class composer, mentor, and leader.
