You'll recall, of course, that Pekar did the notes to the fine "Stitt's Bits: The Bebop Recordings, 1949-1952"

Love Stitt; thank you.


That's Harvey, all right... always hoist on his own Pekard.


Theres Actually a strip done by pekar on Albert Alyer, and Joe lovano, real interesting, i don't agree with him on ayler though.
