  1. The one time I ever saw him was with Sonny Sharrock. Face melting beauty. RIP, sir.
  2. Post-pandemic trend continues, in that there's a LOT more indie-rock stuff. I'm sure it helps shoring up the bottom line, but it's not exactly what drew me to the festival years ago. Meh.
  3. I hear that, Steve. RTF never clicked for me either.
  4. When my uncle passed in 85 we took his records home. A bunch of Monk and Bill Evans, but I wasn't feeling them at the time. Couple years later, first semester in college, it was Inner Mounting Flame that turned me around. From there, a series of fusion mixtapes curated by a dearly departed friend, then Coltrane Live at Birdland and that's been all she wrote.
  5. My goodness, what shocking news. Amazing player and one year *younger* than me. Whew. Rest in peace, JD.
  6. Shameless self-promotion, but my fourth book was published last week. I've returned to writing about religion and politics, and I'm pretty proud of this one. https://global.oup.com/academic/product/embattled-america-9780197623503?cc=us&lang=en&
  7. Apologies if I missed this somewhere in the thread, but for those who purchase digitally the entire Two Ts for a Lovely T box is available on Amazon for 15 clams.
  8. Just spun it a couple days ago, very good indeed. Plus there's a Sly Stone cover!
  9. Almost too many to consider, but one that really gets me is the Paul Motian Trio's performance of "Folk Song for Rosie" from the 95 VV set.
  10. Damn it! I'm deeply, deeply saddened by this news. A great, great human as well as a beautiful musician. Rest easy, my friend.
  11. Burning version of "Dr. Jackle" on that one, Jim.
