It's quiet when the thread is dead and whatever's left is silenced.

regret

The young woman had slept with several musicians. That's why the charge against Warne was dismissed. I regret, however, having given the impression that she deserved wit instead of sympathy.

On Listening To Warne

Margaret loves Gilbert and Sullivan and Leonard Cohen. When I ask her why she doesn't also love Warne Marsh, she sings TUMteeTUMteeTUM by way of response, then leaves to answer the phone. Margaret's laconic reply is a confession of exasperation more than a putdown. It applies not only to Warne's mus...

Who if not Lennie Tristano or Johann Bach or Warne Marsh would ever think of turning a corny tune like "When Your Smiling" into music!

Hi BT, Your effort reminds me of the perfect little drunk poem in Petronius' Satiricon: "Gentlemen. Daylight's for shit. Before you turn around it's night. Eat in bed or sleep on the dining room table is my advice. It's winter time. Not even a hot bath is hot enough. Now I had a speech prepared...

Hi Jostein, thanks again. I notice that Art Lange also had trouble placing Dave Cliff in the Marsh Quartet Copenhagen recording. Everyone else is accountable. How does Cliff fit in? I wrestled with this problem for a long time. Then I said to myself, "'member how Django memorized Louie's solos ...

I'm delighted that BT has designated this site a cyberruin. I drink in the silence heavy with hearsay, where fable and fact interact without prejudice.

Special prize to the most convincing My Christmas With Lennie story.

BT, I think I know what's bothering you, but I can't broach the topic without your permission. Just remember that with the same unfailing benevolence God intends us to live and intends us to die. With a scrupulous God like that, His critters had best stick together. I owe you one for helping me deco...
