Reading Bitches Brew

Tonight: I’ll be reading from Bitches Brew at WORD Bookstore in Greenpoint—I’m sharing the event with Bryan C. Parker, who is bring his own 33 1/3 book on Beat Happening, and series editor Ally-Jane Grossan will be hosting. We’ll be spinning some music, and there will be some trivia with, I believe, modest prizes available. There will also be time to drink beer down the street afterwords.

Next Wednesday, 11 November: I’ll be at Spectrum for a Bitches Brew listening party. I’ll read from the book, talk about the music and about Miles Davis, and we’ll also listen to the entire record, either off vinyl or the Mobile Fidelit Labs SACD pressing (which is amazing), depening on what Spectrum’s Chief Science Officer, Lawrence de Martin, recommends—the great sound system there is his creation.

I’ll sign books at each event, and at Spectrum will have copies on hand to sell (cash only please). See you there.

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.
