The conversation still haunts cinematic reverie: What would James Dean have accomplished had he not been sedated by Hot Rod Fever? Odds are he would not have been a musician, although stranger flings have happened. On this rare cut Jimmy bops Bongos in a Hollywood Night Club in 1953.

Georgie is a soul man, a jazz man, a Van man whose presence enlarged a good portion of Morrison’s early technique. Mr. Fame is a true veteran of the Pop wars, the Love wars and the triumph that an uncompromising talent becomes in twilight. Dig the famous flame of Georgie Fame.

In ’66 as Bo Diddley was doing his thing, a guitar slinger from the South Side of Chicago arrived attempting to compete with the fast and the slow hands of the trade. His born name was Oscar Coleman but he also called himself Bo Dudley. This is his forgotten voice and electrical sliding magic.

1974 was a very good year. Leonard Cohen had come to NY to promote his recording ‘New Skin for the Old Ceremony’. I was able to witness this event with Mr. Cohen singing ten feet before me at The Bottom Line in NYC. He gently plowed those NY nights with a poetic intent, lost for so very long.

She may not have been considered as royal as Ella, but for a white chick born Norma Deloris Egstrom in Jamestown, North Dakota, Peggy Lee could hold her own. She will always be gone, gone, gone like a cool breeze, one cool kitten, written unto the winds of jazz/pop lore.

Phil projected soft majesty in his prime. Then as with all fighters whether they be prize or freedom pugilists, there comes a time when the heart may sigh ‘No Mas’. Some drift into the night like quiet starlight, others roar on like tamed lions. Phil is gone and the ‘Changes’ are now up to us.

George Jones was one of my most significant musical influences within a craft I desired to practice. The messages began filtering in from Jackie Wilson at 7 years of age, Al Jolson at 8, Ray Charles & Sinatra at 9, Rev. Gary Davis at 12, Zimmerman at 13, Phil Ochs at 14. Then along came Jones tones
