    SOLD! Istanbul Agop 21" Special Edition Jazz Ride

    OP, may I ask what stick you were using in the video? I have a 20" that I've had for about eight years and love. But it's 1830 gr which makes yours fairly light for a 21". Thanks.

    Un-aired Buddy Rich tv show on PBS

    I Need Hearing Aid Advice

    To make a long story short, after fifty years of playing I pulled the plug completely about two years ago.

    Jazz-Blues in Orange County?

    Folks, I'll be in Orange County (Anaheim) the entire week of March 25. Any suggestions for some good jazz anywhere in the area? I won't have a car so will have to Uber and don't really care for going all the way to L.A. Thanks much!

    Jazz in Philly?

    Looks like I'll be in Philly Sept. 21-23. What's the best site to check to see what Jazz is available in local clubs or venues that weekend? Are there two or three clubs that bring in really good jazz artists that you would recommend? Thanks much! Steve
