Hmmm...thanks for the information, I had no idea of that's a direct lift-off of my CD "First Lady Of Bass"
which has the 4 tracks that Ray Brown and I did together,
has John Guerin on drums, Howard Roberts on guitar, and
Milt Holland on percussion.  Well, just another reason to
confront someone who is using my stuff without paying me,
thanks for the information.  And if anyone else out there
comes across my things, please let me know...they rip off
the studio musicians too for any royalties.

I have been hearing all kinds of reports of Bert Gerech
of HotWire Records, and it's always something to know
finally the deception of what is going on with theft of
my music. I will be terminating any contracts with
HotWire Records because of this blatant use of my music, 

The Union gal even has been saying "that's not you guys on
Feelin' Alright, that's a copy" thereby the companies are
now getting away with their direct copy of our works (yes
it was us....they can't copy that recording note-for-note
feel-for-feel like the way we did it, no-one is *that
experienced* and we know our playing, like the sound and
feel of our oral voices)...just because a union employee
was told that by an advertising company, and she, not
wanting to go through the trouble of checking with the
recording co. bought it, so we now don't get any royalty
or re-use (geez, $160.00 I can't count on now, that would
have broken them to pay out $750.00 to pay the musicians
and the Union).

So any help I can get on this, sure appreciate it.

I'm fairly lucky, I have a teaching career, wrote the
leading bass tutors, video courses, and am the resident
bass educator at the famous and prestigeous Henry Mancini
Institute-UCLA, and still do seminars, but most of us
don't have that opportunity and are in poor health and
need that extra monies to keep care of themselves....while
we're grateful for the pension, it's not "that much" etc. 
I'm 65 now and thank God I know about herbs, and know how
to take care of myself so I'm not in that
doctor-prescription trap. 

Thanks again for your information, 
Carol Kaye

Hi Tom,

I should have some of these clips on video somewhere.
I'll check and see if I can locate them.
