Appropriately, given the date, I'm feeling thankful for a number of things. For example, how amazing it is to live in a city like New York and to be able to immerse myself in music for a living. Fact: From last Tuesday, November 16, through this past Monday, November 22, I witnessed the following four performances:
1) The Paul Motian Septet at the Village Vanguard [Tweet 1, 2]
2) Cannibal Corpse at Santos Party House [Review and pics via The Volume]
3) Paul Bley and Charlie Haden at the Blue Note [Tweet 1]
4) Bob Dylan and His Band at Terminal 5 [Review via The Volume]
There's really nothing to say but "Wow." Hope everyone has a great holiday, and I'll meet you back here soon. Still tripping out over Jeff Wagner's prog-metal tome, Mean Deviation, discussed in detail in the previous post.
