Dear Oscar,

Layers of wonderful drawing. Did George Duvivier play bass on the Charlie Parker version of OLD FOLKS?

Well said, Editor, these Canadians need to learn a thing or two....They mistreated Bird horrible when he went to play in Massey Hall, Mr Newland@s father whistled everytime Bud Powell took a solo and when Charlie Parker played "Salt Peanuts" made a lot of funny noises, listen to the recording...It was very warm evening and they didnt offer him any warm beer nor a barbacued moose sandwich or cocaine......

Dear Jazzbos,

Parker arrived in Toronto without his horn. He found a white, plastic alto sax in a music store near Massey Hall, named after the brother of Raymond Massey, who plays an American in STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN. When not playing the plastic sax Parker was back stage watching a prize fight on a wood fire driven Canadian television set.
