Delightful to see the cover of that rare Johnny Windhurst album. He's not well-remembered these days, although he had a remarkable tone and a relaxed facility -- as well as the courage to be the other horn in Sidney Bechet's band at the age of 19! If his name is new to any of your readers, there's a lovely clip of Johnny in 1958 playing PENNIES FROM HEAVEN:

I Witness

Your reMarcs regarding country music have emboldened me to invite any fan of original country as in the Thirties, any believer in this country in its heroic Depression mode, to visit my blog, www.mrebks.blogspot.com, where some timely stuff awaits, posted just today. As a local Jazz deejay says, Thanks, Marc, for being out there.
