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. Touring big band...

Which I take to mean that Lennie was banned on radio. New York only or everywhere? Certainly not Symphony Sid. In Cincinnati in the early 1950's two hours a week were devoted to modern jazz. That was it. Why was Lennie banned on radio? I take it that record sales were impossible without being advert...

Hi Adam,

Sonotheque de la Maison de la Jazz lists JCD 016 as the third CD of the Parker collection. But I can't tell whether Sonotheque is a museum/library or a merchant. Maybe you can. I emailed them for more info at <www.maisondujazz.be/fr/tresors/sons/audioT2.htm> Marv

Okay, here's what I'm getting at about the blacklisting. Chubby Jackson invites Lennie to move to New York because Chubby has lined up gigs on the college circuit. The tour falls through. A few years later when Lennie and Lee and Warne and Billie are riding the crest, winning polls, selling records ...

BT, what is the ABS site? Can you or anyone recommend where I might send a copy of Sermon for review? I'm particularly interested in the blacklisting of both Frank Zappa and Lennie. I'd like to know who was responsible for depriving me of the enjoyment to which I have a right as an American citizen ...

BT, your review of Sermon is compressed, clear, impartial and accurate. I'm much obliged. The Intuition and Digression session is a recorded recital by Lennie's students which also includes their teacher. It's egoless, alright. So, if it's egoless music you want, why don't you and others devoted to ...

Were egos disengaged when Lee and Warne were young men playing with Lennie? Warne, I think, would say yes. John LaPorta no because it was Lennie's ego that engaged the others. I don't know the answer although it's certainly a crucial question. Have you seen the documentary on Metallica? It raises th...

The ego! So that's the problem! No wonder I didn't understand. Myself, I'm a functional schizophrenic. I have only a very vague notion of what an ego is and the problems it causes. I gather from what you say that it's not six dice always rolling because they'll come up snake-eyes if they ever stop. ...
