Congratulations to Steve Coleman on being awarded a MacArthur "Genius" Fellowship! Considering the number of previous winners who cite him as a primary influence (Miguel Zenon, Jason Moran, Dafnis Prieto,Vijay Iyer) his time has finally come!

Richly deserved.

That Rick Lowe is also on this year's list of recipients makes my heart feel good. If you don't know about the Project Row Houses in Houston or his Trans.lation: Vickery Meadow commission here in Dallas, well, they are public art projects worth knowing about.

So glad to see this. Too much of the "M-Base" music was hyped before the music was really "ready", imo. But the concepts...whoa. And then, once the music started being ready, the hype was over.

Those Hot Brass albums from 1995, that was when it became apparent/confirmed to me that this was no "experiment", this was a legit language and would continue to grow and deepen going forth.
