    Thats great news!

    About 8 years ago I purchased a method book he wrote "Basic Rhythm and Blues". He advocates playing bass lines to jazz tunes to get the progressions "in your ear" as well as to develop longer "lines".

    In the book he takes the bass lines thru all the keys in the "blues" and "rythm Changes".

    Jazz piano great Lennie Tristano used to advocate this system of practising as well.

    I had posted about his book on another site and no one seemed to know of it, but a few players expressed an interest in purchasing it. Upon further research we learned the book is out of print.

    Hopefully, with his website, those interested in the book may be able to get it directly from him!

    I heard a few recordings he was on and it always surprised me why so little is known or talked about him in the trumpet community. I guess there were just too many great players back in the time he was at his peak.

    Blue issued a recording that had not been released after it's recording. Dizzy REese, Woody Shaw and Joe Farrell are on it..It's quite a find, and Dizzy is wonderful on it.
