THE NOT ENOUGH TIME JAZZ RADIO SHOW

August 7, 2o14 – Jazz @ Noon every Thursday (starts at 12:07 after the satellite news) Host MARK WEBER – KUNM Albuquerque, USA – 89.9 FM (Mountain Standard Time) also streaming on the web > KUNM.org – Current time zone offset: UTC*/GMT -6 hours (*Coordinated Universal Time)/Greenwich Mean Time)

There sure is a lot of great jazz music in the world. We’ll jump into some of it as always every Thursday. Somebody asked me a few years ago How to listen to jazz and I told them two things.


1) Listen to the first note and remember that because everything else is related to it


2) Close your eyes.


& 3) All the best to you, signed Mark

  1. Red Callendar has his hat tilted to keep the sun out of his face while reading James’ music —- Buddy Collette is in the very far back in a b&w striped shirt

  2. Seeing that photo of Frank Strazzeri brought back many, many fond memories. When I was the conductor of the LA Circus our regular piano player had given his notice. One of the musicians dared me to call Frank to replace the him. So I rustled up some courage and gave him a call and he agreed to come out and check us out. We had three horns and three rhythm and were the only circus at the time playing mainly jazz (we even had an upright bass player). We worked Saturday afternoons so it never got in the way of his night gigs. After hearing us he took the gig and he worked with us for over a year. I was very fortunate to have him in the band, he was an inspiration to all of us.

  3. MARK, WHAT A STUNNING SHOT OF WALTER BOOKER.
    I BRAIDED HIS LONG, GREY HAIR AT THE NORTH SEA FESTIVAL IN 1987. THANK YOU, SIR!

    Bertha Hope is currently
    playing in the house band
    at Minton’s in NYC, by the way

  5. Just a guess, Mark, but maybe Carl Schroeder was the pianist on the Sarah Vaughan gig you shot at Bridges Auditorium.

  7. Mark,
    Unless it was before 6:15 am, and it wasn’t a weekend, I would have made you a coffee!
    How did you guess it was my car? LOL
    Isn’t that the ultimate woodwind car? 1983 300D turbo coupe, very rare now. I’ve been driving it for around 5 years. It took me 12 years to find one that wasn’t in a wreck. The trunk can accommodate a bari, tenor, alto, soprano, 2 contrabass clarinets, more clarinets and flutes and the stands and cart to go with them.

    Wow. Just wow. To be included in that stellar line-up is such an honor. And those pictures. I would like to have them all in a big big book. That pic of Walter is absolutely glorious.. his spirit shines right through his eyes! And Shelly and Jimmy.. and all the others.. what a time that was…

  9. Marty——— I had slept in my car that night (can’t see paying $100 to sleep 6 hours) in an upscale part of Pasadena and then heading toward Santa Monica out of the blue decided to jump off the 10 freeway I think at Robertson and went north and found myself at that graveyard where Art Tatum, Henry Miller, and Eric Dolphy are laid to rest, and then it occurred to me that you lived nearby and sure enough there it was ——- it had just turned 7 o’clock, so, now I’m sorry that I didn’t knock, it was a Sunday, and after I snapped that photo I toodled over to Canter’s for some of that extruded corned beef hash topped with eggs & a cantaloupe & tea (I can’t drink coffee it gives me the jitters)
