I'll be speaking at the Siena Jazz Workshop about my book Miles Ornette Cecil - Jazz Beyond Jazz (buy it for your Kindle!) on Sunday, July 25 at 10 am (yes, in Siena, Italy). If you happen to be in those parts then, please come and check it out and say hello.
I'll talk and show brief bits of Cecil Taylor, explosive improvising composer/pianist explaining his method, Ornette Coleman's Prime Time with the symphony and Miles, miles, miles. Francesco Martinelli, esteemed colleague, curator of the Siena Jazz Archive, teacher of Jazz History during the Workshop and friend, will translate.
