R.I.P Dave Young

The main body of the LCC and its practical application, including all 4 published versions of Book 1 with their inserts: the 1959 tan cover; the 1959 light green cover Japanese edition; the 1970‘s white cover, which adds an illustrated River Trip to the 1959 edition, and the currently available Fourth Edition, 2001.

The authorization code is the first word on Page 198 of the Fourth Edition of the LCCTO.

An open letter from Alice Russell. June 21, 2011, Brookline, Massachusetts. 1. DO NOT make insulting, mean spirited remarks about anyone or their work; there are a plethora of sites where you can rant unfettered. If you attack someone personally, your comments will be removed. You can post it, but I'm not paying for it. Go elsewhere, and let those artists who are actually interested in discussion and learning have the floor. 2. There will be NO posting of or links to copyrighted material without permission of the copyright owner. That's the law. And if you respect the work of people who make meaningful contributions, you should have no problem following this policy. 3. I appreciate many of the postings from so many of you. Please don't feel you have to spend your time "defending" the LCC to those who come here with the express purpose of disproving it. George worked for decades to disprove it himself; if you know his music, there's no question that it has gravity. And a final word: George was famous for his refusal to lower his standards in all areas of his life, no matter the cost. He twice refused concerts of his music at Lincoln Center Jazz because of their early position on what was authentically jazz. So save any speculation about the level of him as an artist and a man. The quotes on our websites were not written by George; they were written by critics/writers/scholars/fans over many years. Sincerely, Alice

R.I.P Dave Young

All About Jazz announced the death of the saxophonist Dave Young, who played in George Russell Sextet and in his Orchestra on albums like Jazz in the Space Age and Stratusphunk. Sad news.

I played several gigs with him. They were all big band gigs with him playing in the section. He was a sweet ,quiet person. The last gig I did with him I ask him to sign the picture of him with Wes, and David Baker. He got a chuckle out of that.
To be honest, even though I learned most of what I know about jazz history from reading liner notes, I only recently realized that this was indeed the fellow who played with GR. I knew about his association with Wes.
I'd love to find a copy of the record he did under his own name. He'll be missed greatly.
