BT, it's curious how you edit my quotes so that the meaning appears already underway before the reader catches sight of it, the way one crops a photo in order to make an otherwise perfectly recognizable object appear ambiguous. Are you practicing an art that I should know about?

Jesus, there's been sixty-six vues (perhaps by the same person sixty six times, but unlikely) and no one offers to burn me a fix. I need to hear that trio. I need to hear the three people most able to reproduce Lennie play together. I'td be Lennie with six hands. What he always wanted in his wildest...

BT, why do you like Lennie's music?

BT! I had no sooner posted the reply and was on my way to Baller Hardware to buy some black pipe for Bayron when I thought of the title! Not The Psychology of Music but The Music of Psychology!!! The idea is that Lennie is an important 20th century psychologist who expressed his theories musically! ...

BT, it's a book I always wanted to read, so do me a favor. In your spare time, write Lennie's biography. (Don't grind your teeth. It'll be fun.) Here's how you do it. You, the biographer, don't background yourself in order to wrap your subject in mummified limelight. No, you, the biographer, don't g...

Comrade Tristano, I admit I don't know who you had in mind when you admonished against angry art. But now that BT has helped me realize that I fantasized your radicalism--he thinks of it, quite justly, as the fallacy of coincidentalism--I wish to say I feel that yours was a dumb remark. Perhaps the ...

At this juncture, BT, you put me at a disadvantage. You know where I'm coming from, but I don't know where you're coming from. I mean, how do I distinguish a great artist from a not-so-great one? Or beautiful deep profound art from deceptively beautiful deep profound art? Furthermore, I don't see ho...

Quartet available but Trio (STCD 8278) out of print

Jostein, Really appreciate your help but, alas, to no avail. None of the leads panned out. The Quartet, which I have, is available but the Trio is out of print. There's a giant Amoeba Record Store in Hollywood a few Metro stations away. Look for me there among the used cd's! Maybe I'll get lucky. Ma...

The Unissued Copenhagen Studio Recordings: Warne Marsh Trio

Jack Goodwin kindly directed me to Counterpoint Music to acquire the CD, but they haven't answered the phone in three months, and yet someone must pay the bill for it to keep ringing. And then this Brit CD company advertised it, but they order it from somewhere else, perhaps from Counterpoint Music....

Lennie says that if you feel angry with someone you hit him in the nose. You don’t make angry art. Sure, Lennie, but what if you feel angry with an entire culture? How do you hit an entire culture in the nose? Drop a bomb on it? The only weapon as universal as culture is counter-culture. If you’...
