Too bad there isn't a "like" button on your site. I don't want to knock you out of the queue, but I wanted you to know that I appreciated your post on Horace Silver. He was a great one! I never met him, but I did speak with him once a very long time ago on the phone. He was looking for a sub. I have no idea how he got my number, but I turned him down. I was busy at the time, but actually was relieved. I really didn't think my reading was quite up to it. At that time, I, too, was going to Lynn Oliver's workshops and was having enough trouble with Lynn's music. I remember struggling through a chart on "Oleo" with the bass playing the melody intro. Lynn was really great for young players. I don't think we will see a place like his again? Ah, the good old days!
What was that I said about a "like" button
