I'm back! Sorry for the two plus weeks of no communication, but somehow my password was corrupted and I couldn't get a response from the good people at Ello. Finally a message on their Instagram page made it through, and they restored me. So we're back to your (almost) daily video jazz post. One more bit of positive news....as many of you know I was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer back in October, and have been undergoing intense chemo for the last few months. Well last week's CT scan shows no evidence of the tumor! While this doesn't mean I'm out of the woods yet, and I'm still very weak from the chemo, it's as good news as we could have hoped for. And those woods, at least for now, are not as frightening a place.
Meanwhile, to celebrate, here is Weather Report in 1977 from the Midnight Special television show (yes...jazz used to be played on television every now and then). That's Jaco Pastorius on bass...the man who changed the way the instrument was played and still the greatest influence on electric bass players today.
