August updates

I’m still working on a big project, back after labor day, but quickly:

Congrats to Billy Hart on becoming an NEA jazz master. For fun, here’s a picture of Billy’s quartet with Joe Sanders and Mark Turner after a gig at the Umbria festival in July…

I am in a nice group of people offering “Five Minutes That Will Make You Love Stravinsky” in the New York Times yesterday.

Thanks to Zachary Woolfe for asking me to participate. Previously, Woolfe pulled me in for “make you love classical music”

and “make you love the piano”
