  1. Give It Up For Booker!

    He was a great foil for Eric Dolphy, and vice versa, both in the Mingus quintet documented on AT ANTIBES and on Waldron's THE QUEST. Also, Randy Weston really knew how to write and arrange for him.

    Not a silver lining, but at least there's this to look forward to. https://www.universedoc.com/#overview

    This is just terrible.
  4. Unit Structures: The Art of Cecil Taylor October 23-26, 2019 The Graduate Center, CUNY and Brooklyn College A report by David Grundy https://streamsofexpression.blogspot.com/2020/02/unit-structures-art-of-cecil-taylor.html Not familiar with this blog, but there's some other write-ups here that look worthy of investigation, including this recent piece on Alan Shorter: https://streamsofexpression.blogspot.com/2020/03/why-alan-shorters-parabolic-free-jazz.html Also worth noting: CUNY will soon be publishing two Cecil-related chapbooks: Archie Rand: Eulogy for Cecil Taylor Cecil Taylor: Memorial Scrapbook & Sessiongraphy. Edited by Ammiel Alcalay & Michelle Yom Details here: https://www.gc.cuny.edu/All-GC-Events/Calendar/Detail?id=53654 and here: https://www.centerforthehumanities.org/lost-and-found/publications
  5. Damn, Woody Shaw is just killing it on THINKING OF HOME. Hank, meanwhile, sounds particularly inspired by the material he penned for this date.
  6. I found it to be quite lovely. Lots of atmosphere, as you might imagine... more gauzy than sleazy. You might find this more appealing, though: https://cabinetofcuriosities.bandcamp.com/album/visible-and-invisible-persons-distributed-in-space. Or this, for that matter: https://cabinetofcuriosities.bandcamp.com/album/youre-not-from-around-here.
  7. No joke. It's an OK piece, didn't tell me anything I didn't already know. But I'm not really the audience for it. Still nice to see Hank get some attention from a media outlet of this size/reach.
  8. Richard Brody talking Hank, inspired by Mosaic's new set. https://www.newyorker.com/culture/the-front-row/the-haunted-jazz-of-hank-mobley
