|An image from somewhere in the pages of William S. Burroughs comes close to dramatically summarizing my mind of late, "a blizzard of glass shards." Google doesn't back me up on this but it doesn't matter. Tonight was really about making it "just this" and not "that."|
- Dusk, by Andrew Hill, sounded especially beautiful tonight. The Sun Died, as reconstructed by Ellery Eskelin, was superb. Apparently, context is everything. Some close calls really showed the value of my Index of Possibilities theory. Similar to Cecil Taylor's "...just don't hesitate."
- Cecil Taylor, Dewey Redman, and Elvin Jones. Lots of space and power.
- Grachan Moncur III has a real way with making a tune hum. Love And Hate, from Exploration.
Thanks for listening.
