RIP Cecil Taylor

While I have not listened to him in years, the evolution of my tastes makes Cecil Taylor more a candidate for my soundtrack. His death this week brought him to my attention again. The one hour show below was entertaining and warm-hearted:

In the Seventies, I spent regular time with Art Lande, as he was a friend of my first wife and teacher to her and one of our friends. When I mentioned a liking for Taylor, Art was puzzled, as the "difficult sounds" Taylor produced were not to his taste. Of course, my sonic journey over the decades since has taken me even further out there... I wonder what Art thinks of Taylor now.

recommended, the HBO documentary "King in the Wilderness"

This documentary is good to watch - the soulful, truth-telling people featured are an antidote to what prevails today in politics

NYC visit in a few months

We are meeting up with some friends in New York City in a couple of months! While there we will visit the David Bowie exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum.  We're planning to meet with friends from
our high school, dance, music, and software lives.  Really looking forward to this!
