Just wanted to pass this on from Dennis' Facebook page:

"My dear friends and family: I've been home for a day-and-a-half, now; so overjoyed to be back after such a terrible ordeal. But with the love and care of my wife and boys, and the doctors and nurses who monitored all my internal and external workings, I have come this far. I still have a journey ahead of me, and a continued fight, but your collective spirit, love, and affection is the medicine."

I had a couple email exchanges with him this week when looking to get some CD-R's of his earlier work, and he seems to have a beautiful spirit about him. Jim Sangrey, he passes along greetings to you. I look forward to hearing your playing on his early recordings.

Is Dennis González OK? There have not been any new recordings for quite some time now. Love his music. Have been listening to "Dance Of The Soothsayer’s Tongue (Live At Tonic)" non-stop for the last few days.

I know he had a lot of medical issues a few years ago.

So after a long time of being aware of this guy, I finally checked him out on NY Midnight Suite (Clean Feed, 2004).  Really good, enjoyable music in the post-Ornette vein.  I have a few of his other Clean Feeds lined up and am excited to dig in.
