Horace Parlan Speaks His Piece

Marc Myers’ loving tribute to the underrated pianist Horace Parlan begins with his ubiquitous 1960 trio and runs beautifully through highlights of his career.  There is a great 2000 video of Horace playing solo piano and talking about his life. The only detraction is a plug for the European “public domain” bootleg set of seven of his Blue Note albums from the early sixties, which cheats artists and labels and steals digital transfers and copyrighted art and photographs. Even in death, these musicians are getting ripped off.

40 years ago last month, Archie Goodwin’s final issue of Detective Comics hit spinner racks everywhere. It concluded the Goodwin/Simonson MANHUNTER, and a run of classic Bat-stories drawn by Alex Toth, Howard Chaykin, Jim Aparo and Sal Amendola with Dick Giordano. 
The above pictured are all cover dated 1974, Goodwin’s first issue was 237, dated ‘73 and not pictured. 
The lead features were terrific, MANHUNTER brilliant, and the reprint choices were pretty inspired. The copies pictured have been in my possession since they were new, total investment $3.40 plus tax, adding 14¢, I think. Cost per day:  0.000251242015614 and getting lower all the time :)
