The Big City

”The more susbtantial an individual’s aesthetic experience is, the sounder his taste, the sharper his moral focus, the freer—though not necessarily the happier—he is.."

John Lee Hooker was born this day in 1917. The Blues Brothers is not a great movie, but has a nostalgic appeal, and the greatest moment for me was this appearance, which was the first time I ever encountered this great musician. I was 16, and this was a new world that has grown within me ever since.

“Anyone who can write with insight and authority about Alas No Axis, Sonic Youth, Elvis Costello…Missy Mazzoli and William Britelle, and…Mahler…is okay in my book.”
