It would be interesting to show this photo to Stanley Kay, who is very much alive and articulate. And Ben Lary was an unknown name to me until a few days ago when I received the new Uptown CD, "Charlie Parker: Washington, D.C., 1948," which contains music from a Willis Conover concert featuring Bird, Buddy, Lary, and others. Haven't heard it yet, but look forward to intriguing music.

Keep up the good Wax, Marc --

HI ALL MY LIFE MY DAD HARVEY LAVINE TOLD US STORIES OF HIS JAZZ DAYS IN THE BUDDY RICH BAND AND THE SONG "THE Goof" written about him, cuz he was always forgetting things, and when I'd loose something he'd call me the goof.He loved the smooth style and phrasing of Stan Getz and my dad's playing was similar.

Interesting seeing the Swope brothers in the Buddy Rich band. Earl Swope was married to vocalist Terri ( ) who then married drummer Don Lamond - they moved down to Orlando in the late 70's to work at Walt Disney World. Don, of course was the drummer in the Top Of The World band led by Bob Cross. Terri worked as a Red Hot Mama at the Rosy O'Grady's complex. I subbed a lot in the Top of the World band playing bass and also worked with Terri in several "cool Mama" gigs in the Orlando area. Don passed away a few years ago but Terri is still hanging in there getting gigs whenever the circumstances permit. I have since moved to Boston but get to FL in the winter whenever I can.
