    Those bands used to play for a week at a time at the Disneyland Carnation Pavilion in the early '70s. You could get in for $5 any night of the week and just listen to the bands. With groups like Harry James, one set would be for listening - we would sit on the floor about five feet from the band - and the other would be for dancing. Boy, could those old people dance (I though they were old; I think they were in their 50s).

    While my friends were paying top dollar to stand in crowded stadiums to see their favorite rock bands, I was rubbing shoulders with my heroes. I remember watching the Main Street Electrical Parade with Basie's trombone section and later seeing Sarah Vaughn listening with us, holding an ice cream cone. And I still remember feeling my hair stand on end as Woody Herman's band started their set at full volume only five feet away, then after the set getting marital advice from their lead trumpet player (don't have kids until you're 30 and give time for you and your wife to really know each other).

    Those were great times. I don't live in the past, but I do have great memories.

    I never really liked big bands, swing etc., but I was lucky enough to see a ‘Jazz at the Philharmonic’ concert in Liverpool in 1958. It featured Ella Fitzgerald, Stan Getz, Oscar Peterson Trio, and Dizzy Gillespie. Maybe others that I don’t remember. I was only a teenager and was completely bowled over at seeing such big stars.

    Welcome, by the way!
    It seems as if he does get out - just that he needs to tell everyone the details of what he did and played, whatever the subject of the thread.

    A little discombobulating...

    Hurray - I no longer need to fret over 'the Bloke's' irruptions into my threads, detailing his progress on the guitar and his family origins - needless to say, none of my threads are actually about those topics.

    Yes, I've been saved from myself because MIMF hasn't come back up, even after TC has.

    Maybe this afternoon I will even get me a life.
