    Anyone else catch Oscar Stagnaro playing with Paquito D'Rivera on the PBS Jazz Masters show last night? The tap/slap thing has never been my bag, but I thought he did a really nice job interacting with Paquito. Pretty hip.

    I did not see it or hear about it. I just checked the local PBS schedule, but I could not find anything. Did you hear about a second or third airing?

    Sorry, I don't know about re-airings. PBS is kind of weird about their broadcast schedule. There's a lot of variation from station to station. You'll have to check your own local station. Here's a link to a page with a description of the program and a picture of Oscar and Paquito:

    I studied with Oscar years ago.

    Great guy. Great player.

    does not get enough credit.
