  1. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    Just signing on to agree how demoralizing it is to still be having some version of this conversation after nearly two freaking years. As I tell my students on the first day of the semester (in a purple state, at a university with no vax mandate), you have approximately 12 mandatory vaccines in your body right now just to attend this school, and you're gonna raise questions about the efficacy of science mid-stream? Social media and lying politicians are doing a fine job at undermining trust in everything.

    Devastated. The funkiest critic ever, and a major source of inspiration. Rest easy, sir, and thanks.
  3. Alvin Lucier RIP

    Damn. RIP, sir.
  4. Women in jazz/improv

    Great topic! I'd add: Silke Eberhard Liz Albee Jen Shyu
  5. Ogun Records website/bandcamp + new reissue

    Amazing! Looks like those of us who missed out on the Blue Notes box in 2008 can now score the individual albums.
  6. Covid Vaccination Poll Update

    Same with my wife. She even had some taste and breathing issues. We're quarantining. I'm pretty positive I brought it home from campus last week, since my wife basically doesn't go anywhere (immunocompromised). Thankfully she's feeling okay today.
  7. Our beloved dog Scout

    So sorry for your loss, Larry. It's the worst.

  9. Burton Greene (1937-2021)

    Very sad news. Got to know him a bit over the years too, though not nearly to Cliff's extent, and always really dug our interactions. Not to mention his terrific music. Rest easy, sir.
  10. Laid off today - now what?

    Hoping for the best of all outcomes, John.
  11. Mario Pavone (1940-2021)

  12. Bob Koester RIP

  13. Frank Zappa

    I saw FZ in Cleveland on this tour and I'm pretty sure he didn't play a note of guitar all night. Was an amazing gig though.
  14. Covid Vaccination Poll Update

    We're making good progress nationally in general, but there is disparity among the states. Also, we're dealing with a robust population of deniers and skeptics, so that's also a factor.
  15. Our library has the same dates as Dub Modal's, alas. I wonder if that reflects a gap in what the PC has made available. Perhaps there was even a fire or something similar at some point? Sorry, Dan.
