  3. George Coleman's "The Quartet"

    George told me yesterday that Bill Grauer expressed interest in recording him, for Riverside I presume, but obviously nothing ever came of it. I'll have to ask him what happened. We'll be up at Smoke next week, October 17-20.

  9. It's fantastic. Case closed.
  10. Jazz musicians that played chess.

    I was on a long European tour with the Junior Cook/Bill Hardman Quintet (with Walter Booker and Leroy Williams), September and October of 1986. En route from Ancona to Milan, the promoter decided to have us layover a few hours in Bologna. Coincidentally also laying over in the Piazza Maggiore was Sun Ra's band. John had the chess board out and asked if I wanted to play.
  11. New all-analog LP issue

    No digital preview heads or any digital system of any kind will be used.
  12. New all-analog LP issue

    With Kickstarter that’s true. But setting the correct goal amount is tricky, regardless of your actual costs - too high and it doesn’t go through. Too low and your sitting on boxes of records.. My understanding is that Bernie Grundman’s mastering has no digital process at all.
  13. what are you drinking right now?

    Had the pleasure of visiting Domaine Santa Duc in 1994 and was offered barrel samples courtesy of the Edmond Gras. His son wasn't happy about it.
  14. Jazz musicians that played chess.

    John Gilmore thoroughly kicked my ass in very few moves. Regardless of the fact that I'm a novice it was plain to see he'd been honing his skills for quite some time.
  15. The fugue (last movement) of Szymanowski's third piano sonata.
