HOLLYWOOD BASIE'S WAY!

Here's an album that I know you'll love. It comes from a friend and fan of the Hut Mr. R. Keil. Hollywood Basise's Way is an album with all the punch and pizazz that you would expect from a Basie album. I would say this is one of my favorites of his. A special thanks to Mr. R.Keil for his contribution to the Hut.

MAJOR RENOVATIONS AT HOME!

Major renovations at home has closed the Hut temporarily, but I'm back today and will soon get things going. I had to sacrifice the Hut to move a lot of the house furniture into it so that we could have the entire house fitted with porcelain tile. During the work, the contractor had to rip up the old tile in the bathroom which is almost across from the Hut. Neither the contractor or myself closed the door to the Hut, and as a result, the Hut was completely contaminated with a very fine dust. I did not dare use any of my vintage equipment until everything was completely cleaned. So I'm happy to say as of today, I'm here listening to my vintage Teac reel to reel. I have more cleaning to do but at least I got most of the furniture out so that I can at least get in here now. I'll be catching up on your comments as well. Until then thanks for your patience.
