  1. Buell Neidlinger RIP

    Just got the news from my editor (via Buell's family) that the bassist died today at age 82. He was a force of nature and will be missed. One of the first musicians I interviewed, and though I didn't keep in touch as much as I should have, I really got a kick out of talking with him early on. At one point he trying to write his autobiography though his eyesight had gone and I believe that project had to be scuttled. It would have been something to read, from the stories I'd heard... RIP sir, and thank you.
  2. Hubert Laws

    I think I've really only listened to him as part of early Chick Corea aggregations, but always enjoyed his playing (esp. on tenor) there.
  3. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    probably even earlier than that!
  4. Michael Cosmic Reissue finally here

    Thank you! So glad you are enjoying it.
  5. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Heavy Soul, Inc. -- Live In Paradiso -- (Heavy Soul Music, NL) probably haven't listened to this in about ten years! Excellent, raw free jazz LP.
  6. October Revolution in Jazz 1964... Any recordings?

    Yes, that's true. Also Ra did not like Carla Bley being involved.
  7. Happy 70th Birthday, Caravan!

    sure thing -- hope he doesn't mind!
  8. Happy 70th Birthday, Caravan!

    Happy Birthday Kees!
  9. Last art exhibition you visited?

    looks cool; there's an Italian art/Arte Povera gallery and research center near Cold Spring, NY, which has some very good work on display (though no Griffa that I can recall). It's called Magazzino and should be a space to watch.
  10. It's cool and a good read but there are no footnotes, endnotes, or other citations.
  11. RIP Stephen Hawking

    Wow. RIP.
  12. Grace Kelly

    more like "Gunslinging Turd," right?
  13. Grace Kelly

    There's enough crap on the L train to have to deal with Too Many Zooz during rush hour.
  14. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    this is a nice one. Zimmermann is/was great.
  15. Philip Glass

    Yeah, Einstein.
