Fri, 07/26/13
Authored by David Stafford

It's all about the altos?

Thu, 07/25/13
Authored by Raymond Kent
A Ray Charles tune in which Brother Ray doesn’t sing and David “Fathead” Newman doesn’t play tenor sax. A ballad which is not so sedate, from possibly the best known New Orleans alto player. Maybe half a dozen of the Crescent City’s altoists, the well-known and the less wel... Read more

Remembering T-Model Ford, the “Taledragger”

Sat, 07/20/13
Authored by Stuart Raper
              “It’s Jack Dan-yulzz time!” He would always exclaim with his signature T-Model grin, his lips waxing from ear to ear showing off an exquisite pair of what had to be dentures, a 90-year-old gleam in his eye that still shined with the joy and mischief of a young... Read more
