    Re: Taj Mahal

    Check out Howard Johnson's Gravity group (tuba music so nimble you won't believe it). The second album features Taj as guest artist (they worked together back in the late 60's or early 70's). ...

    Re: Your first horn.......Where did you start?

    Boosey & Hawkes Edgware alto (a Kohlert stencil, I believe). A great choice on my parents' part.

    Re: Henry Threadgill

    I don't have nearly enough of his work. Aside from an Air album, I do have "Song of My Tree" (which has one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard: "Grief"), and "Where's Your Cup". All three...

    Re: What do you think about James Carter?

    Likewise. I loved the part in that clip where Redman just shook his head and started laughing when Carter threw out an outrageous lick. He was almost (but not quite) running circles around Redman,...

    More on that. Cranes Beach in Ipswich is wonderful (rated one of the 10 best beaches in the country) and not too expensive to park during the week. As far as the lobster goes, that's probably...

    He also did some very nice backup playing on Jim Ferguson's first two albums. (Apparently Jim sponsored him at an early age). Every lick was perfectly tasteful and in harmony with the meaning of...
