Ethan Iverson has uploaded a very interesting post about saxophonist Bill McHenry to the Do the Math blog:
"A significant part of the McHenry aesthetic is faux-naif, or the art of seeming simple when it is really not. This aesthetic is declared with the initial music on his first record, the introduction to "Afterthought," where a duo of saxophone and bass play square descending half notes with pauses. It is nearly banal, but the intervals aren't quite the expected ones."
