My Jazz Story

I love free jazz because I want to be fully responsible for what I do I was first exposed to jazz at 11: Erroll Garner's CONCERT BY THE SEA I met Cecil Taylor, Sirone, Douglas Ewert, Rob Brown, Mat Maneri, Heinz Geisser, Shiro Onuma, Matt Turner, Mathias Rissi, The best show I ever attended was Cecil Taylor's Concert Jazz in Willisau 1975 The first jazz record I bought was Erroll Garner's ENCORES My advice to new listeners: Cecil Taylor's 1990 10 CDs of his Feel Trio Have a look into my recent book "Flow, Gesture, and Spaces in Free Jazz" (2009, Springer, Heidelberg). And listen to my new CD DANCING THE BODY OF TIME (2012, cadence jazz records)
