Just came back from seeing "Rachel Getting Married". I had an "aha" moment. You were one of my favorite performers at the 2007 Newport Jazz fest. It was pleasure to see you on the big screen! What a complex and emotional movie!

Hope to see you come through New England again soon.

Eversince i heard the great DH at 'Palmas' by Eddie Palmieri, i was completely wacked down by his tremendous alto playing ! I just got a bootleg of one of the concerts by Eddie's band during their tour last august in Germany. Wow man what a creative latin altomaestro and what a huge sound. Togehter with trp master Brian Lynch its completely insane what there's been playing. Great in 1 word ! It's about time to get some of you're own productions...

Hello, Mr. Harrison. I had the opportunity of watching you nephew, Christian Scott, perform in Lenox, MA on 08/30/2008. His performance was outstanding. Tell him to keep up the good work:) I would have sent him a comment myself, but you need to added as a friend on his my space page to leave a message.

I saw you at JazzFest this year for the first time...with the Headhunters at Howlin' Wolf and was so impressed. Then went to see you at Jazz Tent.
I also saw this badass trumpet player...young guy , and I discovered he was your nephew, that you taught...Christian Scott. You should be very proud. Amazing sound. Thanks for all the music.

PS My 17 y.o. son came to JazzFest for the first time and came right off the plane and straight to Injuns a Comin'. What a spectacle of sight and sound. Again, thank you so much. Killa!

Dear Mr. Harrison,

Just wanted to let you know that your saxophone solo on Larry Coryell's "Bloco Loco" (Live from Bahia, 1990) may be one of the most beautiful sounds ever to come out of an alto sax. You're playing at the same level as my all time favorite sax player, Cannonball Adderley.

Stunning musicianship! I have no idea how you did it, but that solo is pure musical heaven. Thanks from the bottom of my heart.

Trying to lace together the soul and sounds playing behind thoughts inspired by Larry Blumenfeld's "Won't Blow Down" Village Voice piece.

Listening here from Sydney, Australia where I live to hear America's Blues...and my blues too. Thinking back fifty-three years when as a young wonnabe jazz musician (tenor player at the time) , I visited a San Francisco Jazz club featuring the Al Belletto Sextet. Al Belletto alto saxohonist and native of New Orleans - recently picked by Stan Kenton as a raising star in Jazz bought his Sextet out to the coast on tour. Now, fifty-three years later and post Katrina, Al is in Dallas, Texas living with his son and trying put life together.

And, I am trying to bring meaning to "Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans" with an profile article about what has happened to Al Belletto for All-About-Jazz.

ALESSANDRO MAUGERI TRIBUTO A JULA DE PALMA

Ieri 26 gennaio 2008 al "PINK CAT" di Firenze si e' inaugurato sperimentalmente lo spettacolo ideata e diretto da Alessandro Maugeri "CIAO JULA".Estro,dandysmo,gusto per la trasgressione e non solo musicale,ironia e misurato sberleffo ma anche finezza d'interpretazione e gusto di rievocazione,la magica miscela di Alessandro Maugeri che insieme ad un sestetto di veri maestri dello swing ha dato corpo ad una serata d'arte e non solo musicale.Ogni brano e'stato commentato e citato con versi e citazioni.Perle della scaletta,che contava circa 18 brani,"Lui di Lei","Nostalgico slow","Buonasera","Amore baciami" e tanti altri.A sorpresa sul palco,tra luci colorate e note sincopate una drag queen che attraverso un gioco di mimo e ombre cinesi ha reso perfettamente l'atmosfera decadente che Maugeri voleva imporre.Echi di teatro tedesco e Fassbinder.Seguiranno altre tappe in tutta Italia per un progetto tributo a Jula De Palma .Seguiamo l'eclettico Alessandro Maugeri.

Hi Donald,
Just wanted to send you a quick e-mail to tell you how much I enjoyed meeting you and hearing you at KUVO in Denver, CO. As I told you, I represent Mr. David Booker. Perhaps you could check out David's web site at www.davidbooker.com. Also please check out his My Space site at www.myspace.com/davidbooker1. I realize that you are busy, but perhaps you could send me an e-mail response. Mr. Booker would like to stay in touch. He is also a fan of yours. As am I. Your band of your students are very special. Please tell Joe, Max, and Victor hello too. Thanks,
Lynn

We are about the same age. I just wanted to send a positive shout out about all the great music you have done. I, play alto and soprano and flute as well. Lv in NYC( sbronx) and do enjoy this site. And yeah, I do want to pick up Chris Scott ,s new cd, it. I bet you he is better than Hargrove. The Chief outfit is great. You know Duck , I worked for FEMA during 9/11, I met some highly conservative people in my 2 yrs there, and I wonder what type of job the agency is doing after the Hurricane. I hear and read of some very negative goings down there in YOUR hometown( yes, because mine is CLEVELAND,OH, THE MISTAKE ON THE LAKE) home of Albert and Don Ayler and Joe Lovano, (even though Joe is from the suburbs) and I noticed you made a return back to N.O. Well, I hope you and your family, are faring well, or faring at all. In any event, I may pick up Blanchards new cd, but it is such a negative legacy to be left with. New Orleans has many scars it is history. And although, I have never visted there, I am sure I would be impressed with the people and the culture.

I went to a department store today and as I was shopping all of a sudden I heard Nouveau Swing on their sound system. I was so happy, I wanted to shout out loud--"Thats Donald Harrison playing that song--isn't he great". If only I could of--- I really wanted everyone around me to know about you.

24% of Americans believe that the Internet is able for a time to replace them with a loved one. For obvious reasons, such sentiments particularly prevalent among residents of the United States alone. Both men and women can replace the beloved, beloved trips to the World Network. However, the willingness to such transactions vary among followers of different ideologies: conservatives frowned relate to this idea, and the "progressive-minded" on the contrary, Nerkarat it.

Study company Zogby International also showed that every fourth resident of the United States have their own representation in the web-site or internet-stranichka. Creating internet-dvoynikov most passionate about young people (18-24 years of age) - 78% of them have personal Web page.

Only 11% of Americans would agree implantable microchip in his brain, which would provide them with direct contact with the Internet. But the situation is changing, in the case of children. Almost every fifth resident of the United States would agree to equip their child safety device which would allow him to track the movement in space on the Internet.

10% of U.S. stated that the Internet brings them to God. " In turn, 6% are convinced that because of the existence of the World Wide Web God away from them.
