Charles Mingus said jazz was a word invented to separate musicians from their money. Music for a Free World brings us together, drawing listeners to the healing power of smooth free jazz. Each week, surprise guests bring their own sides to spin and their instruments of choice to spontaneously jam.

Of course the powers that be blamed muslims out to wage war on music

Coel, Thanks for posting that Gary Larson cartoon, it gave me another great idea. Later I will watch The Crawling Eye. A great piece of sci-fi monster trash that was a Saturday afternoon ritual from my childhood. And with cornbread and chili? Fuck yeah!

No, I'm just a concert-goer, no connections to work. She should check out Instants Chavirés (in Montreuil). They don't pay much, but it's all legit with a contract and all, and they usually host and feed the artists. And they have a Bosendorfer. They're a struggling place though, no way they could pay for airfare. But they could be a stop on a tour (I know it takes many, but one lead can't hurt)

I use Celsius, but the intervals are smaller in Fahrenheit, so, it's easier to get the accurate ambient temperature w/o going to decimals to decide what you need to wear...

True. C-degrees are fatter – so a thermostat for instance needs to do half-degrees to be completely usable.
