Subject: [ARSCLIST] Mary Osborne query...
Since helping out ever so slightly on a Beryl Booker documentary that is
being made I was summarily smitten by the woefully under appreciated
talent of Mary Osborne. She saw a Charlie Christian gig live in North
Dakota as a kid and promptly went on to make jazz guitar her life's
work. In a fairer world the fairer sex would get an even shot and Mary
certainly deserved better. Not that she was completely ignored in her
lifetime but I think that a male guitar slinger as kickass as she was
would be something of a household name in jazz circles by this point and
not a tiny footnote.:
Does anyone here have an original LP of Mary Osborne that they would be
willing to sell or trade. I have a CD burn but I want the genuine article.
MARY OSBORNE: A Girl And Her Guitar, WARWICK 2004
Thanks to all and very happy holidays to the entire ARSC community
