After helping Laurence deliver papers one cold weekend afternoon, I offered to review
a CD by Warren Smith they'd been listening to on the van's CD player. I worked very
hard on it, fussing over every sentence and even plundering my thesaurus to come up
with such treasures as melissonance. Next thing I know, I'm a regular.
I'm also a musician. I've studied jazz guitar with Ed MacEachen, guitar and music theory with Raoul Bjorkenheim, and composition with Gerry Hemingway. I lead an improvising jazz trio, City Tunnel #3, featuring Adam Lane on bass and Lukas Ligeti on drums, which sometimes expands to a quartet, the Color Now, with everybody's free jazz hero, the indefatigable and omnipresent Daniel Carter added. I am co- curator, with Lukas Ligeti and James Ilgenfritz, of a weekly music series in Manhattan called Free Zone (www.freezoneny.org). Now for the name dropping: I have performed with, in addition to the aforementioned, tabla master Samir Chatterjee, trumpeter Roy Campbell, saxophonists Sabir Mateen and Gianni Gebbia, drummer (and dispenser of melissonance) Warren Smith, and improvising conductor Butch Morris, among many others perhaps not famous enough to impress casual readers but who nonetheless I hope are not offended at not being mentioned.
One moment, you will be redirected shortly.
Thank you for your support, and we look forward to sharing our progress with you for years to come!
All the best,
