Phil doesn't need "Quill"--he's clearly 'pine-prickly enough for any two regular guys. But it's kept him upright and blowing strong for more decades than, say, Tom Petty has been alive. Hey, Woods-man, don't back down!

Red Colm O'Sullivan

Have to jump in, again (!) with the important aside about the European period: the trancendently GREAT English pianist, Gordon Beck, was one of the members of Woods' incendiary ensemble at this time (including American sojourns) and, wow, what a burning, burning band it was. See the Montreux footage, or hear "Chromatic Banana". Gordon Beck's a genius (and they reunited for a 2 CD duo album in the '90s - pure magic too) - one of the most important of all European jazz musicians ever!
(Can't wait to hear what's to be said about LeGrand tomorrow!).

To Marc Meyers - Please read my comments posted after the last of the Phil Woods series. You need to get your facts straight.

Hullo, Not sure if this is the right spot but I would appreciate the help. I'm looking for a rare Gillespie recording, it's his live performance live in Abadan Iran I believe in 1956, any ideas?
