current reading


Check out the Bag's tribute to Bill Dixon on his birthday. Very timely Marc and Derek. For some killer photographs that seem to be copy-protected, check out DMG.
Also, see Mwanji's concert review of Soweto Kinch playing in Belgique as well as his slightly more recent rebuttal of Darius Brubeck's scathing appraisal of Ornette Coleman.


















Finally, from the land of 10,000 lakes, a hilarious
situation from the boys at Do The Math.

I love the juxtapostion of Ornette and Soweto.

I worked hard to get two pictures that showed each of them in the same pose. Then I worked even harder trying to get the proportions close to correct so they would line up nicely. Glad someone noticed... :-)

I think it was not to hard, just to take my image of Ornette - would have been nice to see a photo credit...

It's a part of my ever growing jazz photography work @ www.schindelbeck.org

BTW Soweto just played a few days before in Mannheim, Germany. Images are at www.jazzblogger.com

I'm sorry I've never even thought of doing photo credits but now that you mention it, I will try. usually the photo credits are in a smaller font than the rest of the text and I don't really know how to do that at this point.

Also all I did was a google search for ornette coleman and that was the shot I liked the most. I didn't even look where it came from, but in the future I will.

Thanks for reading my blog though. How did you find me?
