TT 28: Don Cherry, Alligator: TOM HARRELL GIGS THIS WEEK

(scroll down for links to get tickets for this week’s gigs with Tom Harrell, Ben Street, and Eric McPherson)

Just because: my cousin Owen sent me one of my more photogenic shots -- really, this should be my press photo, I'd surely get more gigs. (Car is my dad's '37 Chevrolet.)

New Chronology for JazzTimes: Don Cherry’s Art Deco. (I talked to legendary producer John Synder for this one.)

A brief DTM review of a movie “classic,” Alligator. (RIP Robert Forster.)

Nice reviews of COMMON PRACTICE: DownBeat by Bill Milkowski:

NYC Jazz Record by George Kanzler:

Finally, please come on out! THIS WEEK! I'm not going to be able to play with Mr. Tom Harrell all the time, for of course he's one of the great leaders of our era. Boston, NYC, Philly, this is your chance to see the band live and sounding even better than on the record.
