ART ENSEMBLE OF CHICAGO!

"And more to come." Don't know if I can handle it. Glad that Thumbscrew is playing too, I was planning on skipping Code Girl.

You better check out both of those Frisell shows, or I'll find you and do stuff. You can lie about it tho.

Frisell is quite overrated.

I didn't have the heart to say it. Might still catch the group performance though.

Yeah, last year a guy stopped me on the street to tell me that
I was the only other person he knew that owned a particular
Art Ensemble t-shirt I was wearing.

I'm not skipping any Halvorson stuff. Of course, I say that,
but we again have the problem of waaaaay too much stuff
to choose from for only 4 days. It'll drive you cRaZy!

After the festival, they send you a survey
"too many days? too few days? just right?"
I always say "too few." ...and they somewhat
waste the Thursdays and Sundays by not filling
them up too. Hey, if someone can't beat the streets
and clubs for 12+ hours a day for only 4 days,
then they don't need to be there, but it'd be nice if
they'd spread it out. I wanna see about 80% of that line-up.

I really respect Halvorson branching out and diversifying, but the vocal jazz bent really isn't my thing.

Choosing which ones to go to is going to be rough. Must sees for me: Alvin Lucier, Irreversible Entanglements, Evan Parker/Matt Wright Trance Map+, Schlippenbach Trio, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Thumbscrew, Tim Berne's Snake Oil, at least one of the Wadada Leo Smith shows, and Yves Tumor.

Oh, I like Code Girl. Amirtha Kidambi reminds me of the best elements of
the late 60s/early 70s era free jazz people like Jeanne Lee. She even incorporates
some traces of Asha Puthli (like when Ornette used her voice). I think it's a good,
growing embodiment of the rekindled social consciousness jazzoetry movement.

Along with all of the great music - most of which goes off without a hitch -
you'll run into some of these musicians pretty regularly on the street,
in cafes and bars in that area - it's a pretty compact square mile area where things happen.
I've had the chance to have breakfast with Carla Bley & Steve Swallow, dinner with Philip Jeck,
chatted with Anoushka Shankar at our hotel, a.o. You'll really have a great time there.

My wife got the latest notice from Big Ears
and she was going down the list and just
giggling with delight: "Wow! Just look at these first three!"
(Art Ensemble ..., Spiritualized, Meredith Monk).

Just saw Nine Inch Nails at Red Rocks in Colorado, would like to go back and see something else there. Most beautiful venue I have ever been to.
