- Richard Davis, jazz bassist extraordinaire, was recently celebrated with a marathon broadcast on WKCR, with interviews and selected tracks that included everything from his work with Dolphy and Hill up to sessions with Van Morrison and Springsteen. Archival files of the programmes should still be available @ Dark Forces Swing Blind Punches. Massive kudos to Hank Shteamer!
- Destination-Out! on Steve and Iqua Colson. The overlooked AACM. The last track previewed there is from The Untarnished Dream, which is available from CdBaby. Reggie Workman and Andrew Cyrille plays on it, damn it!
- A belated note that Nels Cline was interiewed by Jason Crane on the Jazz Sessions recently. Cline plays with Wilco, of course - who had a very good gig in Oslo this past Monday - but also has his own projects. Initiate, the Nels Cline Singers' double album released earlier this spring, and the basis for most of the conversation, is highly recommended.
