Gratuitous Matt from P.A. (Haimovitz) shout or peek

Matt Haimovitz lived in Palo Alto and was a child prodigy on cello and someone told his parents “you could or should move to New York and train him at Carneghie Hall and Julliard” and so they moved, he was 10, and then around 30 he shucked the yoke of classical and toured smoke filled rooms, as part of the Rope-A-Dope-All-Stars jazz tour, Charlie Hunter, Steven Bernstein, DJ Olive and more.

I tried to book him into a yoga studio here.

I interviewed and even jammed with his cohorts on “Messien: Quartet for the End of Time and Akoka” that played at Lively Arts, for KZSU, Kracky and DJ. Socalled.
