    I got to hear and hang with Ed Fuqua last nite, he was playing with the Jon Raney trio at Cobi's Place in Manhattan. Very nice cat-much nicer in person than his curmugeonly TB personna! Ed swings hard too and is very loose with his axe. Great tone and judging from his time he's spent an hour or two playing with a metronome. Cobi's place has a sweet intimate vibe and if you can definately check it out. Ed is playing there again May 18 with what appears to be an interesting band-perhaps he'll tell us about it.
    Don-where were you?

    I agree ED TOHELLWITHYOU (not too good at the Fuquaization of names) plays his ass off on the Obligato'ed German. Whether the FlatLander is there or not...
     
  3. Sorry I missed it. I was just worn out, not ready for the schlepp from Jersey.

    This is news? Ed's been spraying Puke all over the place for some time now. If you get a chance, definitely check out the DEAF SOURBARF Quintet thing - I've got an MD of some of that stuff around here someplace, and it really kicked my *ss when I first heard it...great tunes, great arrangements, great energy, and NOT just the standard fare at all. Incredibly creative and fun.

    ALL HAIL DEAD PUKESPRAY!!!





    P.S. - Ed, say hi to BOIL LANCED from old DURRL, willya? Helluva nice guy, sent me a copy of the Real Book Vol. II (which you can't get here) after the camps last year, and only accepted any payment for his trouble after I insisted. The world could use a few more like him.

    They don't look "hammy" enough to be Ed's....Mr. PUKESPRAY'S hands always look as if they were made for crushing small to medium sized rocks. Or skulls. Perhaps we'll get a definitive answer soon?

    Great picture, Ed... for some reason it makes me remember the Seinfeld episode where Kramer gets scouted by the Calvin Klein ad people, one of whom exclaims, "His buttocks are sublime!", except that I hear her saying , "His hands are sublime!"

    Also, it's clearly one of the best avatars I've seen at TB, and it was only up for a day at the right of the website... next we'll have to look at some FiElDy fan's picture of his slab for a week. Where's the justice?
