  6. Hi Jim – Wonderful blog; it’s always a “must tab” in my browser. Cd you bring back the downtown shot in your header? It just seems to fit [and summer, regrettably, is over].
    Your blog reads, the way jazz is.
    How about an RSS feed?
    Keep up the great work, and thanks.

  7. Hi Jim –

    You probably know this, but this is your RSS feed, for those of us who’d like to follow you in our RSS readers. Tested in Google Reader, and it works:


    Thanks, as always, for your great blog.

    Greetings Jim. So glad I found yer blog. I’ve recently started digitizing well over 100 hours of cassette tapes of ‘Impeach Reagan’, ‘Archimedes Underwear’, ‘Banks Close Pipes Froze and Now I’ve Got a Pimple on My Nose’ and the like. At work I would actually run out to my car, on the hour, to turn over the 2-hour cassette in my little Aiwa radio/recorder. It was/is all worth it. Thanks for all the great jazz and music education over the years.

  11. I remember sitting downstairs at The Middle East in Cambridge, Massachusetts listening to Henry Threadgill live and not really getting it. My friend walked over to where I was sitting and said “you have to come over and sit with me–it makes more sense from where I’m sitting”. He was right–I got it.. I’ve trusted his musical advice since then, but I haven’t spoken t him in eons. The last time I saw him was when I took my sixteen year old son to Brooklyn (?) to meet him. I’m surprised that we ever found our way back home. Some day, our paths will cross again.
