This is the whole gig.
Liking this a lot at the moment.
Vijay Ayer, Stephan Crump and Marcus Gilmore play, unwittingly, for me on my birthday 🙂 Seriously, here they are in a great quality video at Le Poisson Rouge in New York on 7 January 2012.
Steve Lawson (@solobasssteve on Twitter) has some interesting stuff to say about improvisation, music and performance in this interview. Even as a non-musician, I find his influences interesting. They’re some of the people I’ve valued most over the years. I remember back in the 80s falling out with people on Compuserve on the merits and importance of the then little-known Bill Frisell. And Keith Jarrett is just one of music’s all-time greats. Steve also mentions the Derek Bailey/John Stevens London free crowd from the 60s. I remember seeing them during the late 70s and into the 80s in small venues...
