New in Arteidolia, a photo essay on waiting. The text was originally written as background for a dance piece choreographed by Sandra Roachford and featuring Uyen Hoang, which was presented at Dance Place in September of 2018. It appears in expanded form, with images by Cristiano Bocci.

RETRO (per) SPECTIVE
Celebrating Bill Warrell’s DC Space
‘Always Ballada’ – Celebrating Jimmy Lyons
Nasar Abadey: drums
Sarah Hughes: sax
Daniel Barbiero: double-bass
Jimmy Lyons Trio performed a final concert at the renowned DC Space in 1986, the same year of his passing. Tonight, Nasar Abadey, the drummer in that trio, is joined by saxophonist Sarah Hughes, and double-bassist Daniel Barbiero.
Best known for his long tenure with pianist Cecil Taylor, Jimmy Lyons playing, influenced by Charlie Parker, kept Taylor’s avant-garde music aligned with the jazz tradition. 100% of proceeds go to the artists.
From AnAccordion, The Double Run, a new music track and video.
Clairvoyance, the first recording by the superb improvisational group Clairvoyance Trio, is now out on Amirani Records. The trio is Gianni Mimmo on soprano saxophone, Adriano Orru on double bass, and Silvia Corda on piano. The music is freely improvised and sublime, and I’m proud to have been asked to write the liner note.
