    That's Scotty Anderson...who reminds people of a current-day Danny Gatton, ie: "...an unknown great..."

    Song-wise, it was "Django's Castle" being played by Chet Atkins, which got me searching for Django's original version. That lead me to Wes..and others.

    When I was 7, my father came home with a record with Stan Getz and this fellow Charlie Byrd. One of the cuts was "Desafinado." That's my first recollection of jazz, that I thought was cool.

    I love Ornette Coleman so much. His music cuts straight to my heart. Lots of people have done versions of his "turnaround" --but this version seems to distill it all.

    I have long maintained that A Charlie Brown Christmas was among the most influential jazz recordings of all time, simply because its original broadcast probably reached more people than, say, Trane and Bird did in their entire careers.



    And I know I was not the only kid whose first real exposure to jazz came from watching it and wanting to know more about the music.
