Yes, no one said touring hurt. But someone did say not touring may have hurt Lennie. Either admit it or deny it or if you're not sure suspend it. BT, when you're cornered, you walk through walls. The only thing I admit to is over-reacting. I retracted the "duh"s and turned the radio down....

If you heard a musician you liked, you went to Clayton's Record Store and searched through the stacks of ten inch "long playing" records. You swapped records with your friends, heard local musicians like Don Hammerline, Marv Lieberman, Gordy Brisker, went to New York as often as you could...

I'm disappointed that we can't resolve this issue, namely, why Lennie chose not to go on the road. Perhaps a future researcher will tackle it. In the meantime, until there's more info, I'll continue to believe that Lennie preferred to be a teaching rather than performing musician with rather dire c...

From the standpoint of someone living in Cincinnati, Ohio in the early 1950s, you way overestimate the influence of radio on the dissemination of socalled modern or progressive jazz. Except for the two-hour show I mention above, that kind of music simply was not played on the radio. THATS MY POINT!...

Its only hearsay ... but I'm convinced something was going on behind the scenes. Its just my opinion. Don't listen to me. I don't have a clue ... Radio is everything (in this context). So what if there is coverage in niche-market mags like Metronome . Big Deal. What about word-of-mouth? Again, BFD. ...

ABS - Alternative Book Shop. I was refering to the site you were already on. It would help if there was a third party review instead of just your own! I know this sounds corporate as hell, but what about Amazon? Seriously, when you first mentioned a book I thought to myself, "Oh, maybe I'll che...

BT, your review of Sermon is compressed, clear, impartial and accurate. I'm much obliged. I will let it sit for a few days and see if it needs any tweaks. Then I might send it off to the ABS site – maybe they will post it. Gotta have a third party review. The Intuition and Digression session is a...

Sermon: Impartial Description

Hey Marv, here's my attempt at an impartial description: Sermon On The Flats - The Egalitarian Alternative to Fortune Worship © 2006 by Marv Friedenn This book presents a new argument on an age-old debate: capitalism vs. socialism. The author’s basic premise is that universal belief in fortune (i...
