Last night Curt Seiss and Tom Wall, on trombone and baritone sax respectively, joined me for a set at Rhizome. The set is up on Rhizome’s archive.org site for free download. Thanks to Rhizome and to everyone who came out to hear us on a Monday night.

Many of us know Brian Olewnick as a perceptive writer on music, but he’s a visual artist as well. For Arteidolia, I’ve written a piece about some of the paintings and drawings he’s done of simple objects–which maybe aren’t so simple after all.
Jack Wright has written a fascinating book about his experiences in the worlds of free improvisation. It’s more than a memoir; it’s a genealogical anthropology of a very distinct and changing world. I’ve written a review/essay on the book, which All About Jazz has just published.
