From the New York Times.
I remember him mostly for his Debussy and Ravel recordings.
Andrew Bird, St Vincent, Lyle Lovett, Rachael Yamagata, Tom Waits, The Explorers Club.
Just checking in…
Where have I been for the past few months? Twitter. But I doubt I’ll put a bunch of ads here to generate traffic. I might just take this down. After the hack-in a couple years back my SEO is shall we say, sub-optimal.
Welcome, twenty-ten. One year later than twenty-0-9.

When giants walked the earth, indeed. This is on my list for future reading!
This is one of the few bands who remind me of the Winter season.
Happy birthday to ECM. My favorite recording company for the past many years and hoping that they last for many more years.
The Seeds…among the most under-rated bands of their day. Both way ahead of their time, and the essence of their time. They were both groovy and punk at the same time. What a great sound, the NOW sound in all its splendor. They were, indeed, the NOW sound.
Now he rests…up in Her room…
Also see this LA Times obit.
Well, it is true that his best work was with the Jackson 5.
