Just a couple of updates while I have a few minutes, provided by the wi-fi and Americano at Progress Coffee...
The interview with Bill Dixon, titled Bill Dixon: In Medias Res, will be running in mid-September at All About Jazz. It will be really special, containing some rare photographs and, even cooler, a number of Bill's paintings and lithographs. If you haven't had a chance to see his singular visual artwork, this will be your chance. There will be a gallery of about ten of his works on display at the AAJ site, linked through the article.
Also, keep your eyes peeled for interviews with Bobby Bradford and Harris Eisenstadt (soon) and another major one with Anthony Braxton (later).
For those of you into the AACM who can't wait for the Braxton discussions, head on over to Bagatellen - a review of the new Nessa Records CD reissue of Roscoe Mitchell's Congliptious is posted there and comes highly recommended.
