Thanks for this very interesting interview, Marc. -- Please ask Mr. Bacon why he pictured a left-handed Fats Navarro on the Blue Note cover(s):

And I'm really curious how Mr. Bacon could convince Monk that it would be a good idea to take a seat in that wagon. Monk doesn't look exactly happy.

Rab Hines

An excellent series, Marc. Once again you cover a fascinating source that wouldn't show up as anything more than a footnote elsewhere.

Great stuff, thanks.
