Playlist, Week of 2018-06-03

Everything blossoms out from everything else... I was blown away by Craig Taborn at Big Ears, and I keep thinking about his playing, there, so I have been exploring his music, which leads to Lotte Anker, Drew Gress, Tim Berne, Tom Rainey... and then I think of Kris Davis, which leads to Ingrid Laubrock, Mary Halvorson, and doubles back to Tom Rainey... which makes me think of David Torn, which of course leads back to Craig Taborn... and this is just one relatively small circle of connections... all this while exploring early electronic music, music for dance by Cage and Tudor, and AMM... Throw in Jefferson Pilot and Roscoe Mitchell... and ..I love how music coalesces and coexists in my brain, even as I have difficulty keeping it all there...and somehow all this listening helps inform and influence my own playing even as I recognize that my style, such as it is, has little if anything to do with most of what I listen to... I am not that technically adept and do not often find myself in the kinds of settings of the music I listen to... but the settings I create along with others are definitely informed by what I listen to, however obliquely... You are what you eat...
