Hey Marc -- regarding the Esquire fashionplates, Fred Astaire was a jazz heavy, too. Maybe not a major improviser, but a classic interpreter of the great American songbook who employed impeccable swing and vernacular phrasing in unique recordings with Oscar Peterson, Flip Phillips, Barney Kessell et al for Norman Granz in '52. If you don't know this album, you're in for a treat. & keep up the fine work -- Howard Mandel

Hi Marc!

This post today made me smile today. I was curious about the Esquire article after reading about it in the 2nd interview of Mr. Haynes.

And...

Voila! The next day, you have "read" my mind and put the article at my fingertips!

You are an inspiration! ;D
