TT 9: Lennie Tristano and Lil Hardin

New DTM: Praise and cultural analysis about Lennie Tristano (who has a centennial this week)

and a wonky look at the blues and Lil Hardin (mostly for students, but others might like it too)

Big tour of MMDG starting…right now…in fact I’m going to the airport after sending this missive. Mark Morris did an interview for Financial Times

Rob Schwimmer put together the geography of the upcoming seven weeks as follows. Please say hi if you come to the show!

P.S. I am playing trio with Jeff Williams and Conor Chaplin at the Vortex March 24, and duo with Martin Speake at the 606 Club on April 22.

I like this photo of me with Dance Heginbotham yesterday:
