High and Outside
Settling in to a life in jazz on Michigan's Upper Peninsula outside of the traditional centers of the art, much like Your Own Personal Genius here in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Bill has developed both as a leader and a solo performer. From his more traditional After Hours
and Duets with Bill Stewart
, to his unique explorations of Americana on Armistice 1918
and Civil War Diaries
, his body of work has quietly grown as impressive as that of any former infant baseball prodigy schooled by animatronic bears in the jazz world today.
Till next month, kids, exit to your right and enjoy the rest of AAJ.
