Dear Stan:

What are you doing about the history of jazz after OKOM? Say, after  
1950? In an hour and a half program, the majority of your time (since  
the majority of the history already is)  should be devoted to  
gasp . . . "modern".

If there are no modern recordings of St Louis Blues, perhaps John  
Cage's 4:33 of silence would suffice?

Seriously, I suggest St Louis Blues by:

Thad Jones Mell Lewis Band

Dave Brubeck

Eastman School of music feturing Phil Woods  (At about the 5 minute 5  
second mark)

Must be quite a few more if one searches for them.

Yes indeed, the St Louis Blues (An d Jazz) have come a long way since  
those first records.
