Nice to see recognition of "A Message from Birdland" as "one of the most revered band recordings of the late 1950s". So why has no one re-issued it? It must be one of the most glaring absences from my record collection!

Erratum: The disc referred to in the above post should have been "A Message from NEWPORT". Sorry!

That John Bunch was not better known, revered and honored more in his later years, is one more cause for cultural despair. I didn't discover his graceful, danceable, often witty work until the Eighties. Besides wishing him a longer life, more time to play and record his mini-tributes to composers, it is certainly too bad, Marc, that you didn't get to ask about the Famous Door and Concord years--assuming you'd have taken the story farther in time than you often choose to do. Bunch had a magical second half like his pal Hank Jones, who should be on your immediate to-do list too, of course!

Those comments he made about Maynard are great. Obviously, he really respected him. Very nice interview.
