Nice list, Randy. I still haven't dug in, but will probably have several of those on mine, too.

I hope to meet up with you guys for at least one breakfast.

Can someone please share the entire Big Ears daily schedule?  Or point to a location where I can see it.

For some reason, I CAN'T see it on the Big Ears site.  When I click on the Line Up and Schedule links, all I get is a screen prompting me to sign up for their newsletter -- which I've already done!

It's frustrating as hell (says the old fart with technology challenges).

I cannot view the schedule when using a Windows computer which employs internet explorer.

On my home computer, a Mac using Safari, the schedule is viewable.

Also, I can view it on my iPhone.

So you might try viewing it through your phone.

Thanks, kh. I can see the info on my mobile phone.

Whoever designed the site needs to do a better job of testing with different Web browsers!  Apparently, IE and Chrome users aren't welcome. ;)

It is odd; I have the exact same issue viewing the schedule on the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival website.

I'd bet you a dollar it's the same Web development company that's built both sites.

It's working for me on Windows/Chrome. Maybe they're launching it today.

Very disappointed that Wadada solo now overlaps Evan Parker after schedule revisions.

The downside of the festival experience. You can't see EVERYthing! ;)

If you have conflicts, that means it's a good festival.

I have marked up a Google Map indicating many venues in red.  It's too large for direct posting here.  If anyone wants to provide the steps to host and link it instead or message me an email to send it to, I'd be happy to share it.

I wonder why THEY didn't put one on the website? :blink:

I’ve heard. Many are very dissapointed, I’m sure. I am. Would have been my first time seeing the great pianist since 2003.

Waiting to find out if Evan & Paul are still coming to NYC and playing as a duo on Monday night. If anyone hears anything let me know. No one at Roulette seems to know.

Sad about Schlippenbach. Consoled by the music of Wadada, Bill Frisell, Ralph Towner, Mary Halvorson, International Contemporary Ensemble playing Anna Thorvoldsdottir, Bela Fleck, Brooklyn Rider........and more + the weather is perfect, the audiences are filled with attentive music lovers and the people in Knoxville are nice

Normally not a fan of dual pianos, but Vijay Iyer and Craig Taborn were mesmerizing.

here is an update re Mr Schlippenbach's attempts to invade the country. was looking forward to hear them we. no updates yet from constellation

 
Tonight at ROULETTE: EVAN PARKER / MATTHEW SHIPP / PAUL LYTTON at 8pm! Alexander von Schlippenbach was supposed to play but was denied a Visa. No one knows why Mr. Schlippenbach was denied a Visa but we can imagine. EVAN PARKER & PAUL LYTTON rarely make their way to New York so..
