what kind? singing jazz, or bop your head to the noodling jazz?

sidenote/hijack: (my friend mikey, an excellent singer, is having a show at Danny's on the 6th and the 20th, if anyone wants to go) : >

The latter; Ravi Coletrane's playing the Rose Center.

I'm already committed to seeing the Ex Models play in Brooklyn on Friday. I'm inclined to wonder about a decentralized, multi-show meet-up extravaganza....if any mefites are interested in a beer and the Ex Models show, in addition to those interested in Ravi and/or Mikey, that is.

Just, y'know...if you're looking for jazz...

It's a big band (no pun intended) with rotating chairs. I'd imagine lots of friends and family have "in's." That said, if you can get an advance of the new Jim McNeely album, I'll be impressed.

Indeed, sex automata or singing jazz who can tell these days?. :)

What've we left to do?
With 20 Minutes?
Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!
We've got the rythm and we make you f*ck f*ck
and we put it on the record!
If we take it from them too...
What they remember?!

Then we make ourselves pretty
and we make some noise (yeah yeah yeah)
we are sex automata
we are sex automata
Now Come On!

I studied with Ralph Lalama and Jim McNeely. We'll see what I can do about that album.
