Kind of Purple: Jazz Musicians On Prince

Read "Kind of Purple: Jazz Musicians On Prince" reviewed by Kurt Gottschalk

"Do you know who Prince kinda reminds me of, particularly as a pianist? Duke! Yeah, he's the Duke Ellington of the eighties to my way of thinking."--Miles Davis

Bassist James Ilgenfritz, it would seem, has been doing everything right in New York. He's been playing a lot, recording and organizing concert series at the downtown Elixir Smart Bar and The Tank in midtown. In a few years, the young player has built something of a community around him, which is what musicians in New ...
