Watch that clip. Take note of the dude in the black suit with white shirt, playing tenor sax. His name is Lenny Pickett, and he has a new record out today.

There are many, many things to say about the man, but you really don’t need to know anything else than you should get the record, now.

I'm a composer and musician, and I write about music—I do that here, for the New York Classical Review, at the Brooklyn Rail (I edit the music section there) and any place else that will have me, like New Music Box and Music & Literature. I also wrote the Miles Davis' Bitches Brew book in the 33 1/3 series.
