Contrabass-list Fri, 19 Dec 1997 Volume 1 : Number 67

Subject: Another CD....


No contras on this one, but anyone looking for some nice jazz bass clarinet may be interested in "At Dr. King's Table" by the Julius Hemphill Sextet (1997 New World Records, 80524-2). The late Mr. Hemphill (who was also one of the founders of the World Saxophone Quartet) does not appear on this disc, but it is the later group that he started. The musicians are: Marty Erlich (as, ss, fl, af, cl, bcl); Sam Furnace (as, ss); Andy Laster (as, fl); Gene Ghee (ts); Andrew White (ts); Alex Harding (bs).

The disc is good jazz: not too outside, but not "quiet storm" either. Some of the tracks sound like they're equal parts composition and simultaneous improvisation.

I can probably get lodging additions up to the Jan 5 date.

Only singles will be available (unless you bring your roomate) at $70/night.

The agenda is

There are 2 meeting rooms we will use near poolside at the Key Largo Casino. The booths will be in one (Fox, and a few CD sales) and the classes/recitals in the other. Jan 5 registration will be manned by the Lions lub in the Casino Lobby near the hotel registration desk. Attendees will pick up there room keys at the Lions desk also.
