- Details about the December 1, 2012 gig at Dizzy's San Diego. Here's a press release on Joe's site.
- Rusefest '91 to Feature New 'Night People' Suite: Crazy May, 1991 article by Dirk Sutro about Joe and his thoughts at the time on free jazz, including "My impression is that the avant-garde needs to re-evaluate itself and start thinking in terms of structure again. I think if you have just totally free music, that becomes self defeating. If the Statue of Liberty was small, it would hold it's shape, but since it's large, it has to have that scaffolding. We're trying to expand our music at the Ruse, but it keeps collapsing on itself because there's no structure. I'm very interested in large structure."
- Night People (and info about their music), including this key Miff Mole quote: ""I respect Joe Garrison for his musical vision and courage."
