Wow! What a picture of Mundell Lowe. Was he ever in the same room with JFK?

No mention of "Music For Zen Meditation"? Or, did I miss it?

You are familar with Bill Crow's devastating and near irrefutable takedown of Scott (both the musician and the man) in the June 1959 issue of The Jazz Review (which can be found online)? In the interests of fairness, Crow's piece did inspire a letter in defense of Scott from onetime Scott sideman Bill Evans.

Tony Scott was a great musician...not quite sure what u mean about his playing being uneven... Jimmie Maxwell told me Tony could play jusy like Bennie Goodman when he was a teenager, Jimmie would take Tony to jam sessions with Lester Young and Hawk, said Tony was too young to be scared. Just got his big band date (w/Paul Motian/Osie Johnson alternating)...love his 52nd St lp with Pee wee and JC Higenbotthom..I think he was way ahead of his time...hung w/Bird... then crossed over into the unkown
