In view of the wealth of American music available to Will Friedwald, I am proud that he selected an album by Britain's own Tubby Hayes to show to viewers. My youth was spent listening to Tubbs!

Brief-lived Nocturne had its own West Coast agenda, but I believe the photographer in question succeeded in making two points.


After your interesting lines on Earl Coleman I've been listening to him again. I have the 'returns' record as well as the one with Rollins, but I've read that he also appeared on one Elmo Hope record.
I have all the Hope record I know about and Coleman is not in any of them. Do you know wich record can that be?
Thanks for all your fine work.

What could say the United States more than a Canadian pianist playing a Brazilian's composition? ;)
