i grew-up in little rock, ark. i moved to sf in 1967, right around the corner from "the both/and". i remember when t-odd barkin bought "keystone" from bill graham. i lived in both places, pretty much for the duration. i talked t-odd into using the idea of the "both/and card" as the "keystone card"(10 admission's for a fixed fee).

i had many "brite moments" there until t-odd's mouth hit my fist, during a lou tabackin(?)/akiyoshi(?) concert, and i never went back. i was there every week until that incident, unless i was out-of-town. i love music, but tend to hate musicians and the plantations that they have to work on.

i am a bitter old man, but how many genius's does anyone want to meet?". i call myself an "xjazzman" who loves improvisation. the great Sam Rivers, just died, and he also lived in little rock for a while as a child.

James leary(JAMLEAR on youtube) the bassist of the eddie marshall, george cables(the remnant of the old "fourth way") house trio, is also from little rock. sadly eddie died last september.

I WAS THERE!!! i used to sit in the dark corner below the sound booth, soaking-up "the sounds". the staff thought that i was anti-social because i hardly talked to anybody, and was always alone(mostly).


i am sure that we crossed paths many times!!

John Stubblefield(1945-2005), tenor man and i were in jr. high together. i taught "stub" to read music, and he flew off and left me.

Pharoah Sanders(Ferril Saunders) was our contemporary from north little, ark.
