Amazing story of the life (so far) of artist Ford Beckman in the latest issue of The Believer. I won't even summarize because it would take away from the way the twists and turns of his tale reveal themselves in the article. Wild.
speaking of wild, are there riots in Ireland today? they were completely jobbed in the World Cup qualifier yesterday v France! Wow.
Bill Evans - Loose Blues - had never even heard of this and found it used; from reading about it it sounds as though it was never issued during his lifetime because the tunes were too tricky for everyone to nail to his satisfaction during the session, i'm just happy to have a Bill Evans record i've never heard. the guy seems so serious, but there's a song on here called Fudgesickle Built for Four, how could i not get it?
