Hey Motherlode,

Thanks for posting that. I had kind of forgotten about these lists actually and it was a great reminder.

A couple of things:

1. Thanks for bringing up Marcus. I certainly know his name but haven't listened to him in a while. I found a number of good things on youtube and it was great to hear him.

2. I think, if I recall correctly, that these lists were brought together by Ran Blake, who was trying to gain support for George's recorded music like you say. The way I remember it is that it was an attempt to have "The Jazz Workshop" record re-released, but I could be off about this. I think it was George who told me that Ran went to bat for the re-release of that album. Either that or it was Ran who told me and then I later discussed it with George who confimed.

You are correct that dear Ran circulated the petition for the reissue of The Jazz Workshop, Chesper.
