|There was something in the air that made hesitation seem inexcusable.|
- The Diminished Triangle by Gerald Wilson was grand and sweeping, varied and flexible, a showcase for strong writing and playing. He contributed greatly, rest in peace.
- The Great Lake Suite will prove to be problematic because it's pretty deep in the dig/digest/grok sense and it provides endless variables of any/all elements. Wadada Leo Smith, Henry Threadgill, John Lindberg, Jack DeJohnette.
- Charles Gayle is commitment personified. He is like a laser beam of intention balancing between Larry Roland and Michael TA Thompson.
Thanks for listening
