I have about 15 other items in my bike bag that I meant to tag to the bottom of the previous post “Jello Biafra w. Laura Grace of Against Me: or, Witness by Dave Douglas”.
And as Cafe Zoe was closing its owner Cathleen Daly was rushing in and then out again carrying of all things, more than 9 cartons or jugs of milk.
I snapped two photos, one with her struggling and one of just the cartons in a case or crate but you will have to take my word on that since she is too modest to let me run her photo.
I did send a version of below or before to Matt Merewitz who is Dave Douglas’ pr guy Fully Altered Media. Never met Matt but I did take a bus from Center City to the office or Lucoff, where Matt once worked. Don Lucoff? DL? It was a nice visit, and I left with about a dozen titles, plus I stopped at the local library and bought a surpluses copy of Hart biography, the Broaday guy. Plus a Hamp biography, the vibes player. Lionel Hampton.
I am off to library later to upload some photos shot by Catherine McLay I think of Steven Bernstein Diaspora Suite in 2009 at Bottom of the Hill, The Earthwise 10th event.
Meanwhile, there are 3 sandwiches here on the counter of Cafe Zoe, to go, for me, Terry and Joe Zirker. Talk about pedestrian, although we are driving.
I also remember doing some kind of push-poll research on Ambrose Akinmusire — we had a meeting in Santa Cruz — when Matt was repping a keyboard Miles Davis thing and Ambrose had a nice solo on that — to the point that Ambrose might have asked Matt to tell me to stand down. Or whatever Matt told Ambrose about it, Ambrose told me himself. I definitely told Andrew Gilbert that Ambrose would win the Monk. And I could sense Ambrose’s path based on the way that Steven Bernstein’s old pal Peter Apfelbaum held him in high regard, he, and Dayna Stephens.
