Kudos to Coleman, MacFoundDaddy

in a perfect world M-Base would be giving artists and activists $500,000 grants, but today's laurels for Steve are a good step, a giant step even

Steve Coleman won a MacArthur Genius grant. He joins Steve Lacy, Corey Harris and many others.

M-Base, his thing. Not sure how it works. It says in his bio he was part of the Stanford Jazz Workshop, mid-1990s. Went to Illinois Wesleyan.

Would play somewhat obscure halls in Oakland, I recall.

I’ve never seen him play.

A vocalist from Stanford, Jen Shyu is in his crew.

Kudos.

edit to add: you say “booya” we say “sooya”…
