i'm lucky i think that at a young age a Monk compilation my brother had (that i have now, unfortunately) was my introduction to "modern jazz". (after Benny Goodman, Billy Holiday, etc)
i stepped right in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/11/17 10:29pm Funky16Corners:

That's a solid place to start.

Funky Monk !
Hallo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/11/17 10:30pm Funky16Corners:

My intro was my Pop's copy of the Modern Jazz Giants LP, where you can hear Miles yelling at Monk.

Hey Geezerette!

yeah despite all our fighting he sure liked to turn me on to good music. Roland Kirk soon followed. (etc.etc...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/11/17 10:32pm Funky16Corners:

I hope I had the same effect on my younger brothers
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/11/17 10:32pm coelacanth∅:

oh man i do and maybe don't want to hear Miles yelling at Monk!

No, and I don't think I really noticed it until I got it on CD years later.

Isn't this Mama Cass special?
  Wed. 10/11/17 11:10pm Dean:

Cass Elliot appeared as a character (portrayed by herself) in the Scooby Doo cartoon series, which my kids watch on DVD and YouTube. They have no idea who she was, but even as a cartoon character she impresses them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/11/17 11:12pm Funky16Corners:

We got to see a HBR cartoon art exhibit at the Norman Rockwell museum and they had a cel of Mama Cass and the Scooby Doo gang
Avatar    Wed. 10/11/17 11:17pm geezerette:

Mama Cass was brilliant. I love her reaction shot watching Janis Joplin in Monterey Pop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/11/17 11:18pm Funky16Corners:

One of my favorites. Such a great voice and personality.
  Wed. 10/11/17 11:30pm Dean:

Coincidentally, I'm just now scanning a series of posts by Al Martino's daughter about '60s-'80s LA. She displays a photo of a 1966 issue of KRLA's Beat magazine from April 1966. Among the upcoming concerts there announced, "Mama's and Papa's" at Hullabaloo. Hullabaloo was a club that shortly became the Aquarius Theater, where "Hair" premiered.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/11/17 11:35pm Funky16Corners:

That place has a very interesting history. I think it may have started as the Jerry Lewis Theater where he did his early 60s TV show
Avatar    Wed. 10/11/17 11:39pm geezerette:

Think in the 30's it was Earl Carrol's , a cabaret club. Above the entrance were,(supposedly), the words,"Through These Portals Pass The Most Beautiful Girls In The World". Oh, Hollywood.
  Wed. 10/11/17 11:40pm Dean:

According to Martino, it started as the Earl Carroll Theater in 1938, then Moulin Rouge from '53-'66, then Hullabaloo, and in early '68 Kaleidoscope. Canned Heat was the house band, the proprietor being their manager (and brother of comedian Phil Hartmann), until it was renovated later that year to host "Hair."
  Wed. 10/11/17 11:41pm Dean:

Shoot, check it out: http://martinostimemachine.blogspot.com/ Great pix of Eddie Cochran and Brian Wilson shopping at Wallich's Music City. (I've been there!)

Sorry, cued up the wrong song there...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/11/17 11:43pm Funky16Corners:

I was wrong. Jerry Lewis was in the El Capitan Theater
Avatar    Wed. 10/11/17 11:49pm geezerette:

This set reminds me of kerosene lamps and Celestial Seasonings.
I studied hippies in their native habitat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/11/17 11:50pm Funky16Corners:

I'm a little young but always aspired to a kind of hippie-hood
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/11/17 11:50pm Funky16Corners:

A little young to be an actual hippie. Not actually young...
Avatar    Wed. 10/11/17 11:52pm geezerette:

Me too!!!

Great version!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/11/17 11:54pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah Richie was great. I have a couple of other covers I should play in the future.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/11/17 11:56pm coelacanth∅:

i was a child hippie, or at least so i thought! the teenagers (and 20somethings?) generally thought more favorably of me than my chronological peers. where i lived i was the one and only boy with long hair within 2 grades in elementary school.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/11/17 11:57pm coelacanth∅:

i like Richie's version of here comes the sun, especially.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/11/17 11:57pm Funky16Corners:

I begged to have long hair, to no avail.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/11/17 11:57pm Funky16Corners:

Richie had one of the GREAT voices
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/11/17 11:59pm coelacanth∅:

my brother and i worked on my parents starting when i was in first grade. we had crew cuts until then. each school year we managed to get it longer and longer until it was past my shoulders in 6th grade.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/12/17 12:05am coelacanth∅:

i had to weigh out the attention of older girls to being picked on by boys and by adults!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/12/17 12:05am Funky16Corners:

I cultivated that biker look for years, but I don't think I was capable of anything else
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/12/17 12:06am coelacanth∅:

i don't think i ever looked like a biker...even though i rode!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/12/17 12:07am coelacanth∅:

take care Larry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/12/17 12:07am Funky16Corners:

Oddly enough I looked like a stray Hell's Angel but never owned a bike (though I wanted one in the worst way). I couldn't have pulled it off. I encountered the real thing a few times. I wouldn't have made it.

Thanks for the mention, Larry. You are very welcome.
