Does anyone have any info on Max Adkins. He is mentioned prominently in Henry Mancini's biography but I've found very little else. I'm looking for any info at all.....like where he was born, where he studied and whether or not he was married,...had kids,...and any definite connections to Mary Lou Williams, Billy Strayhorn or any one else
We just got back from doing several road gigs with Ronnie Laws and the shows were killin'. For those coming to the show tonight, you are really in for a treat. See you later tonight!!!!!!!!

What ever happened to the Steel City Stompers. Not quite in the jazz genre, but I used to go to Bimbo's out in south Hills where they had a regular gig. My memory of the names may be cloudy but I remember the duo as Ross Thorn and Jimmy Candles.
Thanks for any info.

I visited the August Wilson culture centre last nite and caught Grady Tate. He scatted his can off. A consumate musician.
Impressions? (personal)...Humphries on tubs was his usual driving, tasty percussionist. The best in town. Paul Thompson really blew. I mean, fine changes, great time and...lots of heart. A quality all too absent today. Blake on Alto was solid. He's dependable...usually brings "something to the table" The lady from N Y C, on piano, did a creditable job. …Continue
