“His recollection of an abandoned prospector’s shack, which he discovered as child, aptly describes his own studio: ‘a little palace assembled from … almost any type of found object you can imagine.’”

Remembering artist and collagist Jess, who was born today in 1923.

One of the great, under-appreciated artists of the 20th century.

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.
