The music is not enough. It never has been."
It is true today, but when I encountered the Condon records
back in the 50's and never stopped listening; I had a impression
that his was one case where music was enough. It was a lot of
the other type outfits that couldn't make it on music alone. Just my
.02 . And I thought the reason he was getting he attention he got was that for his outfit it was, "just the music." BTW, I listened
to "Barbone ST." on radio365 "Gumbo" show, and the trombonist
according to Steve was Glenn Dodson. Wow, a great player and
fun to hear.
