As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

"i" got it wrong and so did the Daily Mail.

My preferred daily paper is the "i" -  the concise version of The Independent. However, my faith in the press was shattered when alongside of a previously unpublished photo of Marilyn Monroe getting out of a helicopter with Ray Anthony was a reference to "Legendary crooner Ray Anthony."
Now we all know that Ray Anthony was a band leader and a trumpet player and even if the newspaper didn't know the fact he was holding his trumpet might have given them a clue!
The Daily Mail purported the same error - read the article and see the picture here.
Lance.
PS: In another photo on the Mail's website Marilyn and Anthony, still holding his trumpet, observe a drummer who looks to me like Mel Tormé - what do you think?

I have seen several references to Mickey Rooney being present at the occasion and singing Ray's My Marilyn so it is quite possible it is him with the drums. He played drums in at least two films, Strike up the Band and The Strip.
