@Km: Reminds me of a friend in college who had a "Kiss my axe" sticker on his electric guitar.

o-kay!
i'm curious - who'd you have said was the first sax genius?

mt:
maybe that's why electric guitars don't have the cavities -- coz those would then be axeholes. (axehole rose, anyone?)

arun, szerelem:

Arun: if you haven't seen it yet, check out Woody's "Wild Man Blues". The man loves Bechet's music.

km, i've been meanign to get my hands on WMB by woody, but never really got into seeing it actually. That, and the one by scorcese on The Band - i think thats the name of the documentary too.

and also WMB audio can be downloaded at his blog (though not free!).

it is, isn't it?!

arun:
thanks for the links! just as km said, the woodman is a HUGE fan of bechet's. even named a kid after him. i've heard he's a pretty mean clarinetist himself, although the thought of springing seventy grand to go watch him for an hour and not hear him say a word hasn't quite struck me as the greatest possible deal.

also, the scorsese movie on the band is called "the last waltz". it's an absoluet must-see -- my favorite music-related movie. and remember to save an extra night for the making-of featurette.

gift:
thanks -- i just woke up to find out... welcome back :-)

Oh yeah, The Last Waltz is *heaven*. It was made on the sly by the Eyebrowed One *while* he was shooting Taxi Driver.

He may or may not have done anything great since Goodfellas, but to make Taxi Driver and TLW at the same time is superhuman indeed.
