This is great work. I can hear those horns and those notes flying off the pages.

Paul, great collection of jazz greats. Good to see Sonny Rollins today, my first up close and personal was at the Monetery Jazz Festival with B&W. So did some Photoshop for color later. My jazz time was long ago, 1958-65, when MJF started, so have Brubeck "Take Five" crew, Louis, Dizzy, Tjader, Duke, Mingus, James, etc. Last year I put out a blurb edition (688782) - take a look "MJF- The Early Years." Just a few weeks to 2010 MJF! Some close-up times 1-1 with Louis in "My Life - " 240 page book 1492487. Was in Santa Fe Aug. 1-4 this year, first time.
