I wanted to let you all know about a quite comprehensive and well written article on the subject of Third Stream music by Jeff Kaliss (http://www.jeffkaliss.com/) which includes a nice description of my own endeavors (including a mention of the New Music Circle) and generally puts the style into historical perspective by outlining the personal concepts and goals of some of the pioneers in this field – Gunther Schuller, Charles Mingus, David Amram, MJQ, Miles Davis and others.
The article is in a magazine called CA-Modern (http://www.eichlernetwork.com/camodern.html). You can read it online or order a copy of the magazine, but I’d recommend the latter, because it’s a colorful and descriptive publication about lifestyles in California and modern architecture of the mid 20th century. Important, though, be sure to order the Summer 2010 edition, if you want to see the article. Enjoy, and let me know what you think sometime.
