When people hanker after the good ol’ days I am with them on this one.
1. The clothes in 1959 were classic. Plaid, Brogues, tie pins, cigarette cases and pork pie hats all things of the past.
2 Black and White – has its merits and Film noir will live longer than 3D movies in the annuals of time.
3. One take live recordings – name any band who would even have the bottle, OR even be proficient enough to do a live broadcast of 9 minutes plus like that?
4. Jazz is and always will be cool and if done well is a different gravy.
I am not suggesting we bring it all back, but some things the World should still mourn are these two Stars of Jazz.
ps. Thanks Colston for reminding me
