Dear Marc,

A delightful and enlightening post. Loren certainly knows this subject from the inside out (hear him on reed sections, and he has the kind of knowledge that comes from sitting in one) and you ask the right questions. Of course, I'm always thrilled to see someone like yourself spreading the word about my heroes, Sidney and Dave Tough. But the most intriguing part of this blog is Loren's comment about Benny's "thinking too much," to use my paraphrase. With any creative spirit, there's a balance between doing and analyzing --- maybe that also accounts for the fossilizing of Benny's later repertoire. It surely wasn't simply a matter of giving the crowds what they wanted. He was and is a complex subject. Thanks for giving us such insightful peeks into the man and his music!

More from Loren Schoenberg, please Marc - this stuff is very important.

the BG pieces the last two days have convinced me--well, my lucky unknowing wife, anyway--to buy this Mosaic set for Xmas, even though i have many of the tracks on old LPs. the Marc/Loren tandem make for mighty marketing!
