Wow. What a wonderful tribute to Andrew. Thank you. We attended his funeral on Saturday, and shared stories with his family, fellow neighbors, bandmates, and friends. He touched so many lives and left us with great memories.  #RIP

There’s something way beyond inspiring about way Andrew White lived and led. He didn’t waste a minute on the bullshit: He did what he wanted, how he wanted, and he leaves behind just an *unbelievable* archive of hilarity & brilliance https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/20/arts/music/andrew-white-dead.html

But no, seriously, I'm highly grateful that the "jazz" nom's are not altogether wack (and that there are a lot of "jazz" artists in other categories ... cuz jazz is not what you think it is, ppl!!!) simply bc I did not have time to be pissy about dumb shit today

If Jacob Collier wins Album of the Year (totally likely, right?!) will ppl talk about it as a "win" for "jazz"? (1/2) https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/24/arts/music/grammy-nominees-list.html

"I think this is just the beginning." Thousands of protesters took to the streets of  #Guatemala today and some set a fire in congress, after a controversial budget bill brought a series of long-simmering crises to a boiling point. Here's my article: https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/11/21/guatemala-protesters-torch-congress-as-simmering-anger-boi...

I still think this is one of the most salient pieces of music criticism I’ve ever seen.

NEW: Top Democrats are pushing President-elect Joe Biden to move quickly and aggressively with executive actions on causes ranging from climate action to relieving student debt to immigration. Message: Don’t wait for Congress. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/white-house/bypassing-mcconnell-democrats-push-biden-aggressively-u...

Facts: 1. GA hand recount moved margin less than 0.04 pts, well within historical bounds. 2. Biden's up 0.3 to 2.8 pts in other Trump 16-Biden 20 states. No chance of flipping them. 3. All candidates in Trump's position in last 100 yrs conceded by now. https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/21/politics/biden-trump-georgia-analysis/index.html

Sad to hear DC sax titan Andrew White died. Dude was funny, filthy, & a sui generis genius. Still have all his lo-fi LPs & CDs, kooky catalogs & 800-pg bio. I wrote & rewrote about him as often as I could. Here's two:

Resolution, of a sort, in one of the most shocking jazz stories we’ve seen recently. ⁦ @giovanni russonello⁩ has the details. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/10/arts/music/irvin-mayfield-pleads-guilty-fraud.html?referringSourc...

And here's the discussion. We spoke about peace, healing, the definition of "spiritual jazz," and how to convey revolution without words. Thank you  @Nubya Garcia,  @Christian Scott,  @Nate Chinen &  @giovanni russonello. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DI4sKUHRr_o

What's the over/under on the Wisconsin legislature appointing one set of electors and the governor certifying another? I think the odds may be higher than many are considering right now. The GOP leg. leadership there has a track record on these kind of shenanigans.

Ah polls, how I’ve missed you so. REUTERS/IPSOS POLL: About 80% of Americans, including more than half of Republicans, say Biden won presidential race

Late sharing this, but it's a good moment to spend some time with this new Fred Hersch quarantine record & let it slow your anxious post-election blood flow down just a little https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/06/arts/music/playlist-burna-boy-weeknd-missy-elliott.html
