Alvin Ayler and other stories

Here is a write up of Weasel Walter, who I'll be playing with (along with Greg Kelley and Paul Flaherty) this Tuesday. Really exciting, I feel it will go well. White Mice are also on the bill and they are a band that I've always liked.

Please note that we all make mistakes, but I definitely did a slight chuckle at the mention of Alvin Ayler.

I'm going to call Albert Ailey about this!

I'm also playing in NYC on Saturday at a benefit concert for the Festival of New Trumpet. I'd like to thank Taylor for getting me involved again.

In closing, a word of advice: In music, don't play by the common groupthink rules established by your particular sector of musicland unless you really truly believe in them.
