Performing 4 times between now and the end of the year.

The other person interviewed, Terry Cannon, is a wonderful person who, besides running the Baseball Reliquary now, also founded Pasadena Filmforum in 1975.  Pasadena Filmforum evolved into Los Angeles Filmforum, which I now run.

Thanks for the heads up! I try to catch Bobby any time I can. The 29th date conflicts with the Makoto Kawashima concert I'm going to but I should be able to catch another date or two.

The CD from this suite will be released soon.  Terry Cannon, who organized it, died on Sunday of cancer and one of his last acts was editing the liner notes by Lynell George.  It's also been mastered.  Not sure when pressing will happen now, but I don't think Terry's passing will delay it long.

Terry was also the first one to invite Mark Cantor to present a show of jazz films, which he did at Pasadena Filmforum in the late 1970s.  

Here's more on Terry, that I just sent out:
