check me out, i’m famous:
these gents represent the finest of the fans of this music.
Cisco Bradley runs www.JazzRightNow.com, a website devoted to documenting and promoting the improvised music scene in brooklyn. he teaches history at pratt, is developing a “history” course about current improvised music, is looking for a new apartment so that he can host house concerts, and he’s writing a book about ALL OF IT. so yeah. hustler to the n’th. plus he’s a great dude and a good hang.
Sam Weinberg is a young gun. he plays saxophone and is intimately familiar with the artists on this scene and their proclivities. he’s currently doing lots of well written, well researched, and highly informative interviews and features on the blog over at www.searchandrestore.com.
i’m looking forward to seeing what both of these guys get into in the coming years.
