Dear friends and listeners,
I couldn’t see him in my hometown, because his presentations were at the same time I had to MC at LA ZORRA Y EL CUERVO JAZZ CLUB in El Vedado and had to take care of our guests in our highly musical basement on Avenue 23 near LA RAMPA HABANERA.
Since my arrival in Vermont, the search began and continued since I could be really connected to Mr. Barron’s music career. Special acknowledgements to NEA Publications and many music albums, and three of them with drummer GERRY GiBBS and his Thrasher Dream Trio – featuring RON CARTER (ab) and KENNY BARRON at the piano and Guests in Volumes II and III.
Also to the SPHERE JAZZ QUARTET – an ensemble founded in 1982 to play, mainly, the Music of THELONIOUS SPHERE MONK.
To flutist MARK WEINSTEIN thru his album JAZZ BRASIL featuring Mr. Barron at the piano.
To IPO Recordings for a sensational JAZZ SAMPLER they sent me home, and to singer Jane Monheit who 15 years ago recorded her album NEVER NEVER LAND sided by Barron, Carter, David “Fathead” Newman (ts), Hank Crawhord (as), Bucky Pizzarelli (eg) and producer Joel Dorn.
There was a lot to chew in our show this afternoon @ WWPV 92.5 FM “The Mike”.
