that was probably me riccardo - no problem

you had asked 'what's to add about Max?'

& I had said I'd say (heh! :)

that Max was on the cutting edge of the music in the 40's
& not that far from it when he died

that he formed a personal style that remained recognizable for half a century

that that is a remarkable achievement for any artist, no matter their field

that we rarely missed him when he played on the west coast - a long drive for us then up Highway 1 along the coast - at Keystone Korner - & sure ain't gonna miss this one now! thanks (yet again, over & over . . .)

Cecil Bridgewater is an under-appreciated musician. Anything with him and Max has to be worth some close listening.

Thanks riccardo
