And there are plenty of jazz festivals, even forward-looking jazz festivals, about. YES! This whole conversation excites me. I am actually setting up a one night festival here in Salt Lake City. There are a lot of great young players here making really amazing music (and actually drawing good crowds!), and I can't wait for all of them to get together and make some noise! I've been working hard trying to get something that resembles a budget for this so we can bring out some "well known" (at least to me!) artists to play some music. Anyway, the notion of this kind of music spreading across the country is exciting to me--as a musician from Salt Lake City, it is cool to see. :-) *sorry if this message is garbled. i'm posting this from work! haha
Congrats! Awesome!
Sounds great! Nice work as always.

hell yes. the one recording of him playing it is can hear him sweating as the song approaches the 3 minute mark and he needs to wrap it starts to rush like hell and it is AWESOME! the gil evans version covered in the sturm book is pretty righteous as well.
I just wanted to say that, as an aspiring composer, improviser, and comic book creator, i love this blog. have you read "Promethea"?
