Dammit! Les Paul and Rashied on the same day?? Wish I knew it a few minutes ago. I just did my music set about jazz and would play some interstellar space.

Wow... That's a name I haven't thought of for years.

He did good.

I saw him at a seminar once.

He refused to talk about technique. No how. Only why. When talking about songe, he spoke of emotion and dance, not notes.

Quite the original.

I saw Rashid Ali twice. I did go to a seminar with Andrew Cyrill once and it sound quite similar to what you described. I do love Ali's work with Coltrane but my favorite might be Touchin' On Trane which does earn the very rare 5 Star award from Penguin Jazz. The liner notes are by Brotzmann and he mentioned that Gayle was homeless for quite some time and how European jazz musicians are more respected, etc. Ali was from the end of an era in American jazz... there's still new sounds and players in Jazz, but music as a business is dominated by studio producers and big labels and less emotion and instrumentalism.

If you want to hear someone new carrying on the tradition of Ali, Ed Blackwell and the like do check out Chris Corsano... he's might be the greatest drummer I have seen on stage, if not, tied with Han Bennink.
