I'm suffering from a severe case of brain block today. I did finish Decade of Nightmares yesterday, but I need a minute yet to chew on it. Will comment on Monday, hopefully wrapping up my 70s/Wynton posts, for now.
In the meantime:
critic Doug Ramsey's blog, on abuses of jazz and the English language. The one English abuse that drives me crazy, that I didn't see there- "most unique", "very unique", "extremely unique", etc. You can't modify unique, dammit, that's why it's unique.
Good friend and inspiration Ran Blake is on MySpace, (A sign of the apocolypse, I'm not sure) The music he posted is well worth the trip
