Re: [Harp-L] Nice Article on Toots

It is a nice article, but it's almost entirely drawn from interviews in other magazines that date from the 1970s and 1980s. That said, people who haven't dug into library archives aren't likely to have encountered those articles, so it's good to see that material made available (though they inexplicably misspell Geroge Shearing's name, which is odd considering his status as a jazz musician  - sort of like writing an article and mentioning Jon Coaltreyn).

Here's a new jazz site that has a nice interview currently up on TOOTS. I
especially like the part how John Lennon was intrigued by watching Toots
play live in Hamburg. John was mesmerized by TOOT's Chromatic Playing and
his Electric Rickenbacker Guitar!!!!
