There's a great story making the rounds of jazz blogs - I'm picking it up via The Bad Plus' Blog... DO THE MATH: Brilliant Dave Frishberg story: "Sheila Jordan greeted me with a big smile. 'You really missed something tonight,' she said. 'You should have heard Kiki's show. You should have heard 'Mad Dogs and Englishmen.' It was really out there! You know who that is on piano, don't you? You don't? That's Cecil Taylor,' she told me. 'Herbie sent him to sub. He's been here all night, played for everyone. You've never heard a show like this in your life.'"
