  • It was great to hear, my friend, Fred’s take on the 7 Questions. It was the perfect wrap-up of this series. Both erudite and droll, Fred provided answers that were not only informative and entertaining, but quite thought-provoking.
    I have, and smoke, an A.D.P. pipe that is nearly 130 years old, with a horn stem. I have yet to find any taste influence from the horn material, even though I am often an aggressive puffer.
    I really enjoyed the upbeat “Heaven” by Los Lonely Boys. And, like Mick, I like Jojo’s bass work.
    Community coffee, the stuff Jim Amash mainlines. A wonderful old-style coffee with absolutely no pretentions.
    Thanks again for an always entertaining show.

  • I was listening to the streaming of Rochester Jazz 90.1 this afternoon while reading, and caught a partial I.D. of a song that had just played. Seems it was titled “Prince Albert.”

  • Great show. Fred, as always was the consummate guest. He expresses his in opinions in a way that just doesn’t seem to threaten yours. One thing I do miss about not going to pipe shows any more is not getting a chance to talk to Fred.
