TT 6 (Ira Gitler by Mark Stryker)

Tonight: Boston: 7:30: Bud Powell in the 21st Century at Jordan Hall with the NEC Jazz Band. A couple of my own pieces + Celia, Tempus Fugit, Bouncin' w Bud, Wail, Dance of the Infidels, I'll Keep Loving You, Un Poco Loco…

New at DTM: Mark Stryker offers a wonderful obit for jazz critic Ira Gitler, the Bard of Bebop.

Also a few more of my own reflections on Don Shirley (plus outtakes from the New Yorker essay).
