It seems Wittgenstein was a first class a-hole and last class music critic. He really disliked much of the stuff he commissioned and plowed through the stuff he liked.

Please guys...is this going to be April Fools MONTH?

I hope not, I can't continue to be a fool for the full 30 days.

The Modern Jazz Quartet Plays "Jesus Christ Superstar"

That's not completely fiction. The Modern Jazz Quartet + Paul Desmond

played the theme from "Jesus Christ Superstar" on the posthumously

issued LP recorded at Town Hall on Dec. 25, 1971.

That explains how this idea came up in the attics of my mind - I heard that album at a friend's place many years ago.

Dave Brubeck plays softly now, at least in concert. He has played with quite a light touch in the three concerts I have attended in the last few years.
