Third Stream

Saturday, December 8th, 2007

With classic Paul Horn/Lalo Schifrin and Dizzy Gillespie/Lalo Schifrin collaborations, I’ve added two more great examples of Third Stream Music recordings to our list, under “Pages”/ “Other Artists Whom I Admire”. (If you don’t see a menu to the right, click on the “blog “ link above the banner.)
And…… you don’t have to be a St. Louisan to enjoy the two latest additions to my Blogroll:
St. Louis Jazz Notes is a site filled with interesting articles about musicians, photos, links to recordings/sites and exciting new music videos.
And…….New Music Circle (for which I serve as a board member) is a St. Louis organization which sponsors many local events and brings in Avant-Garde touring groups from around the world. Our newly renovated site will tell you about its history and mission. You can read thought provoking articles, look at our calendar of up-coming events and purchase “new music” CDs and other material (presents?) in the NMC Shop.
You’ve got lots of clicking to do, so get to work (It’s really more like play), and I’ll see you next time.

Third Stream

Third Stream compositions on blog feature Elvin Jones, David Liebman and many great players with links to Gunther Schuller, Eric Dolphy & more:

Based upon my mission statement and the musical examples on my MP3 Player (If you don’t see a menu to the right, just click on the “blog” link at the top of the page.), I would love to know what you think of my music and how it relates to your own approach to playing, composing or just attentive listening. If you prefer to keep your comments private, be sure to indicate that in your message, and we can converse solely by e-mail.
