Christian Scientist?[edit]

Given his work, it would appear that--like Solon S. Beman--he was a Christian Scientist. Is that so? Rick lightburn (talk) 17:04, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Where is Maybeck Hall?[edit]

As a jazz fan, the I heard of a Maybeck Hall through the series of solo piano recordings by jazz artists on the Concord record label. I know that Maybeck Hall is in Berkeley or Oakland, so I assume that it has something to do with the architect Bernard Maybeck. Any light on this? Rick lightburn (talk) 21:50, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

You're looking for Maybeck Recital Hall, a very modest wood-paneled location for focused performances in front of a small audience. My only time inside was when I saw Modern Mandolin Quartet play there in 1990 when they were touring to support their album Intermezzo and I thought to myself "this place sounds fantastic... it's like being inside the loudspeaker!"

A friend from Woodstock, VT came by yesterday (Aug. 15, 2009) to show me his car. It's a 1929 Packard touring car. The license plate is Vermont and says 'Maybeck'. Apparently the car was owned by Bernard Maybeck. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.142.38.129 (talk) 17:53, 16 August 2009 (UTC)
