Wednesday, February 16, 2005 has a very interesting article and interview by Kurt Gottschalk with composer and mulit-instrumentalist Henry Threadgill:

”There are no scholars trying to analyze what I've done and critics certainly don't know,” he said. “Nobody gets reviews so people look at you the same way year after year after year. I could turn into Jesus tomorrow and you wouldn't know it.”

Christopher Porter has an excellent article about jazz musician Dizzy Reece and his re-emergance on the jazz scene:

But for the most part, Reece’s career has been so far under the radar that many people, tuned-in critics and musicians alike, think he has died. Ironically, Reece looks extremely healthy and vital—and he’s ready to be heard again.
