    Hey folks,

    Some of you might already have checked this out, but I just discovered it. There are 4 podcasts featuring Scott Lafaro.

    Do a search in the itunes store for Jazz Insights with Dr. Gordon Vernick

    He's an incredible host--these are just wonderful podcasts!

    Funny note about the pronunciation of names. Most people I've heard (including me for many years) mis-pronounced LaFaro, making it rhyme with "Far" instead of "Fair." (e.g. correct = La-FAIR-oh; incorrect = La-FAR-oh). Dr. Vernick gets it right, but mispronounces the drummer Paul Motian's name, which is pronounced MO-shun, and not MO-tee-un.

    Not that it matters much. I just find silly stuff like that interesting.


    P.S. In an unrelated field, the most commonly mispronounced name of a moderately famous person that I know about is the anthropologist Clifford Geertz. Every anthro prof I ever had (and the anthro faculty I work with) pronounce it GEAR-tz, but Prof. Geertz pronounces his own name "GURTZ."

    Oh, and if you're not an iTunes person, the podcasts stream directly from this site, or you can download them in mp3 format. The other shows look great, too.

    I haven't listened to Scott in quite a while so I listened to all 4 podacasts and am struck again by his technical and musical clarity. And that he walked like no one else. Just an outstanding musician who happened to play bass.
