    This is available for free on Vimeo for a few more days. I was hipped to it by the Mosaic Records Sunday email.

    Thanks. Really enjoyed it. A life rich and well-spent.

    All that I missed were duets with Chris Anderson, but those are out on CD (None but the Lonely Heart---Naim)...

    malkauns is indeed an actual raga!!...

    but ^ a jazzers take on it!! hah

    don cherry's brown rice is a great album....haden plays thru a wah pedal on the title track...almost gets a tabla effect

    don cherry was a hero to me...he thought way outside the box...and the guys that played with him all had ears..why charlie was perfect!! and higgins..and frank lowe on horn...smart players with huge ears

    cheers

    I used to have a Don Cherry album with a picture of a soccer field on the cover, if I remember correctly. Can't remember a lot about it, as I was listening to a lot of that stuff at the time, but I do remember liking it a lot. I wonder what it was...

    Charlie Haden Ramblin' Boy documentary-playing_-album-jpg

    Don Cherry, Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden, and the great Ed Blackwell. I'd love to hear it again.

    I met Dewey Redman twice: once at a bar in the Village. He saw my guitar and said: 'Musician! We gotta stick together!' The 2nd time was an early JALC reheasal I wandered into after a club date office audition started boring my ass off. It was before the Time Warner building, and they were in a rehearsal studio. (Long story for another time---met Wynton and Ornette, whose music they were rehearsing. A beautiful day). But Dewey (also Wynton and Mr. Coleman himself) was just as warm and real as that first brief encounter.

    These people can never be replaced...
