    Here, My Dear

    It's a tale as old as the hills: Boy meets girl, boy and girl date for a long time, girl dumps boy, boy is devastated, boy writes songs. Hell, people (and certainly not just boys) have based their entire careers on it, and some would argue that the g...

    Quite a time, those early '80s in this here New York. The subways were dangerous, the clubs weren't, and you could still shoplift refillable markers from Pearl Paint. Artsy-fartsy types danced to live bands, and sometimes there were people of color o...

    Singing Cool and Hot - Cassandra Wilson and Dee Dee Bridgewater Enter the Pantheon

    Can it be that little more than a decade ago, jazz singing was widely written off as a dead art? No one had come along to take the stages abandoned by Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, and Carmen McRae, though Betty Carter and Abbey Lincoln had survive...

    Fuzzing the Familiar - Phil Kline Buries Old Tunes Beneath a Wash of Color

    It's remarkable how enjoyable it is to see some familiar object through an obscuring mist. Like, take a simple drawing you've seen a million times and wet it to see the ink run: Suddenly it looks mystical, poignant, a romantic ruin. And given how sim...

    One of the infrequent pleasures of ethnic weddings and bar or bat mitzvahs in the era before DJs began contributing to musical unemployment (may God forgive me) was the chance encounter with jazz players hiding out in those bands. I can recall coming...

    Teach Yourself Fugging - The Lower East Sides First Underground Band Refuses to Burn Out

    The thing you have to accept about the Fugs is that they'll never sound as good as you hope. You assume the Lower East Side's first true underground band will be tough, gritty, minimalist, urban protopunks. Uh-uh. That was the Lower East Side's secon...

    Too Filmy to Describe - Even Without Props, Ingram Marshall Creates Ecstasy

    Ingram Marshall is the great poet of the indistinct. His music is filmy, nebulous. It melts. It enters unobtrusively and dies by slowly slipping away. In between the drama can be gripping, but it sneaks up on you. A friend once accused me of neglecti...
