Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

Sonny Rollins......interesting guy.
I did a show on WCBS-TV ("Public Affairs" stuff) with a quartet of Sonny Rollins and naturally it went beyond a hit. It was magic. CBS make a small fortune from various foriegn markets buying rights to it (Japan,etc) and then had the audacity to complaint the subject wasn't public affairs - yeah it was beautiul art - JAZZ by artist who will go down in human history.
The small hassle that happen was answered by me suggesting we all go to the Bklyn Bridge to do the thing via remote.
Seens Rollins had a neighbor who complained about the noise? So Sonny started hanging out on the Bklyn Bridge blowing his horn as he only could.
Only in New York!
Just one of those wonderful experiences I had in that hamlet of a constant spell of art.
