Ahoy Devon & Islanders!

Never heard of this guy, but he's definitely counted among the many ubiquitous yet unrecognized talents in the jazz and jazz-funk worlds. Really enjoying all I've heard so far.

Btw, always wondered who was responsible for the art & design of the "giraffe-cat". Saul Bass?

I have a lot of ground to cover as far as watching the movies of Warren Beatty's early career (late 50's & 60's).

The Osmond Brothers and Jackson 5 both played the Indiana State Fair when I was a kid...we went to the Osmonds and it ended early because Jimmy got knocked out cold while they were performing Kung Fu Fighting...I regret nothing.

Wow! That must've been quite a tense moment for fangirls & spectators alike (as well as the organizers)! Speaking of, is there an Osmonds biopic somewhere out there in Streamland?
