Hello Chresti, hello NGH!

Myra Melford, new to me (for some reason). Why don't I know him? Of course I know Billy Bang, but also not familiar w/ John McCowen. Bubblyfish is an old friend of mine, can't wait!
Avatar Wed. 12/19/18 3:32pm david w:

Myra has been in California for years now but she was a major part of the downtown scene 80s-90s.

Hey, Jeff. Yeah, its going to be a slow fade from jazz to wha???
Avatar Wed. 12/19/18 3:48pm northguineahills:

When I first moved to NYC, I saw Billy Bang at Stonewall. I had to ask, is this THAT Stonewall?!!!! Indeed it was. Memorable show!
Avatar Wed. 12/19/18 3:51pm david w:

I think last Friday Doug Schulkind said that he thought musicians who groan and sing while they play is a sign of greatness.
Avatar Wed. 12/19/18 3:52pm northguineahills:

@david: (see late period John Coltrane)
Avatar Wed. 12/19/18 3:55pm david w:

Muhal also. And then there is the wonderfully silly controversy over Glenn Gould "ruining" his Bach recordings.

Jarrett...

A deeply delicious instrument, and McCowen makes it groan beautifully.
