  4. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    The gottiness of some people combined with the deafening silence of others are staggering.
  5. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    I hope the rerouting of the data bypassing the CDC will not affect the trustworthiness of the future reports.

  11. Ahmad Jamal

    Jamal created the concept of samples, without even sampling anybody else! His mixes of outbursts, breaks and furtive lines within an ethereal atmosphere can be quite enjoyable. Of his early recordings, I like the Epic & Okeh records but tends to prefer the live recordings at the Pershing or the Spotlight club. A later recording, Jamal plays Jamal, has great moment(um)s. From his very recent outputs, I have listened to his Olympia concert with Lateef (I only enjoyed the solo Lateef part) and his Marseille recording (solid date).
  12. Keith Tippett (1947-2020)

    So sad news. I had the pleasure to listen to Keith Tippett co-leading Viva la Black in Grenoble in 2008. Thank you for the mujic and for the positive vibrations!
