  2. Rumor has it McLaughlin gots a big un

    By U L E on Jan 6, 2019

  3. McLaughlin is a Honky . They’ s some brothers in this group and that helps but why is they playin with that honky ? Never understood Miles putting that honky in his band . Blacks are the only Jazz Masters . No Honky Whites , Euros ‘ Wops , Spicks , Krauts , Micks , Jews , Arabs or Chinks can play jazz . Jazz was meant to be played by the brothers.

  4. I’m perplexed that this great show has no comments other than the usual penis bullcrap and another bigot rant . Where are the real music fans ?

  5. Jazz Man - I think you’re confusing jazz with hip hop.

    By JFK on Jan 7, 2019

  6. LBJ had a bigger Coc . JFK was envious

    By C Tony on Jan 7, 2019

  7. LBJ would regularly pull out his very big Coc to Intimidate congressman and Senators to push his agendas .

  9. Thanks for this great music from the archives.

    By Triojazz on Jan 8, 2019

  10. Thanks a lot for this, and thanks to the guy preserving it for us. Haven’t heard it yet, but it seems to be a treasure trove of interesting stuff. Keep it coming, regardless of whatever Mr. Tony thinks he can now entertain us with….

  12. “Jazz Man” = Klown Man. Probably American White Nationalist from the sound of the fake accent. Pucker up, it’s winking’ at ya Klown Man

  13. Great archive!!!
    Excellent compilation from a great festival!
    Thank you!

    By rochacrimson on Jan 9, 2019

  14. I’m late with my take on this . This is not ‘ I repeat not true Jazz . None of it . The recent Monk and Montgomery shows were Jazz . This is incoherent noise pollution ‘ plus anything with the hack ( McLaughlin) can never be Jazz . The showboat that he is .
