Memories of Ornette Coleman

Wish I had some photos of me & Ornette Coleman inventing Free Jazz at the Five Spot back in '59. Suffice it to say, he was a very "out-there" cat. And though he ultimately took jazz in a more conventional direction, our paths will always be intertwined. With me on trombone & him on that crazy plastic sax, we forged a sound that can only be described as "infuriating." I’ll always remember the time Miles said Ornette was "all screwed up inside" (like HE was a bed of roses inside?) and I retaliated by clocking Miles good in the head with my slide, from the stage, while playing the shit out of the Dorian mode. Wild nights! Some cats just didn’t “get” us, and maybe we never “got” each other, but I’ll carry the torch of freedom for you, Orny. Tonight I’ll be blowing out people’s eardrums on the W. 4th Street platform, still searching for the Shape of Jazz to Come.

Get Ready for My Album - Summer Release

Well, I've been hard at work on this album...hoped to have it done by the NY Funny Songs Fest, but the gods said no. Will it be my Pet Sounds, or my Smile? We'll find out soon enough! Getting a lot of help from "& friends" -- the hot band Modern Beast, the multi-talented Matt Park, and a juicy guest vocal by Jessica Delfino​. So, now that the word is out, I'll try to avoid the media and get back to finishing the damn thing! Until then, you can crank up the title jam...

Deflategate Finally Broken Down

I know everyone’s been waiting for me to break down Deflategate. It’s like this…

Tom Brady just thought ball deflation was too stupid of a thing for people to ever care about. But Tom was wrong. He grossly underestimated the public’s capacity to care about stupid things.

So who’s stupid now, Tom?

This will be my last word on the subject, unless I think of anything else I want to say about it.
