TT 14: James Newton, Geri Allen

Good morning! I have started a column at JazzTimes called Chronology. (Thanks to Vinnie Sperrazza for the title.) The first column is about James Newton’s wonderful new disc.

At DTM, I have re-edited the Geri Allen essay and included a few more transcriptions.

Tonight: Bar Lunatico with Vinnie and Mike Formanek. Hmm! Should be cool.

Friday I’m at the Jazz Gallery with Dayna Stephens, Ben Street, and Eric McPherson. I’ve written a couple of new pieces with titles like “It Was the 70’s” and “Technically Acceptable.”

And here are flyers for my out of town gigs with great rhythm sections:
