  1. Tower Records

    Like others when I visited NYC I would go to the Tower Records in the Village and particularly the Annex. Not far from there was Other Records (?), which is now closed. When we visited Tokyo about 7-8 years ago, my wife and daughter went to Disneyland-I went to the Tower Records store in Shibuya: https://blog.discogs.com/en/digging-in-tokyo-tower-records/. That was great.

    "I'm not clear who wrote the piece"-Don Sickler perhaps because he posted the information and the last paragraph is attributed to him? https://jazzleadsheets.com/news/herbie-nichols-solo-piano-summit/

  11. McPhee/Bisio/Longberg-Holm/Sultan 1-25-20 Kingston, NY

    There are more concerts in the Kingston/Hudson/Catskill area than those held at The Beverly, e.g., Alvaro Domene's "Singularity" series, Michael Bisio's Sunday afternoon concerts at the Lace Mill (the Matt Shipp Trio played their last November [?]), Bobby Previte's Sunday night concerts at the Avalon Lounge (and before that at the Hi Lo). Consider "friending" Fred Longberg-Holm, Previte and Alvaro Domene on Facebook. Or go to Alvaro's, Previte's and Michael Bisio's respective websites and ask to be put on their mailing lists. In Kingston, check out Tubby's and the Kingston Artists Collective. Tubby's has a McPhee/Corsano concert scheduled in the end of February. Perhaps you are aware of Planet Arts' duo series in Catskill in April, May and June.

  14. Sunday, January 5, 2020 doubleheader

    Yup-Paul Shaffer of Letterman fame. Shaffer his a long-time friend of Munoz as explained on Munoz's wikipedia entry. Multiple drummers worked fine. I have not see Munoz in concert for around 15 years. My memory was that he was more dissonant years ago than last night. Now he sounded sort of like Jimi Hendrix in a jazz setting. Longberg-Holm was great as were the 3 other musicians.

  18. What live music are you going to see tonight?

    I was the same Ingrid Laubrock concert as relyles. Caught the Miles Davis documentary in Hudson Last night. Off to see Frank Wakefield, a bluegrass mandolin player, at the Parting Glass in Saratoga Springs tonight. Tomorrow night I plan on catching the Tony Malaby trio with Ben Monder and Billy Mintz at the Falcon in Marlboro And if I am really ambitious I might see Alvaro Domene, Michael Bisio and Nick Lyons at the Lace Mill in Kingston earlier in that afternoon.
  19. No value?

    I have a 2017 Subaru with one of those CD players integrated with all of the other technologies. always listen to cds.-still have so many to listen to for the first time. never stream. never bother setting up the blue tooth in the car since I never saw the need to receive or send phone calls while driving.
