From this week's Time Out New York:

Just back from a residency in West Africa, Toronto-born avant-jazz percussionist Harris Eisenstadt - who has worked with the likes of Sam Rivers and Paul Rutherford - is celebrating a new release, "The All Seeing Eye + Octets." This disc pairs a reverent yet risk-taking spin through a classic Wayne Shorter set with two lush multipart works by Eisenstadt, which skillfully reconcile spacious groove with textural intimacy.

- Hank Shteamer

Hi Harris- I don't think we've met but we've got one degree in regard to Alan Lechusza and Mark Weaver. I did a whirlwind set of gigs with Alan a few years ago out here in NM (on drums). Mark and I have worked together many times. Mark is always inspiring. I was sick with strep the last time you were here, with Paul Rutherford, so missed it. Oh yeah, I was out of town when Brassum came through here last winter, too. Very sad.

Anyway, I do a radio show called Inside Out every Thursday on KSFR, Santa Fe public radio, streaming from, from 1-3 pm Mountain Time. Great set list you put together for WKCR. Today the KSFR show was:

Ornette Coleman- Dancing in Your Head (excerpt)
Billy Cobham-The Pleasant Pheasant/Spanish Moss
Wayne Shorter- Montezuma
Noah Howard- Ole Negro
Sam Rivers- Scud
Duke Ellington- Eulb
Sun Ra- Angels and Demons at Play
Sonny Sharrock- Many Mansions
Don Cherry- Brown Rice
Julius Hemphill- Dogon A.D.
Arthur Blythe- Bush Baby
Ornette Coleman- Healing the Feeling

...the intended focus was on creative improvised and composed music that avoids the traditional jazz rhythm. But don't call it fusion! (except for the Cobham, I guess...Spanish Moss in 17/16 time, but he really makes it walk).

Break a leg on the July 1 performance.

thanks for your blog, be well,

peter breslin

Man, that Thomas Chapin record is so beautiful.

Sorry I missed you on the radio. I was kicking the klez in Vienna...
