An online diary recording my work as a composer and writer in Houston, Texas and beyond . . .
Friday, April 7, 2017
Looking forward to this tomorrow. I will talk a little bit about the great pianist Connie Crothers, who graces the cover of my book Freedom of Expression: Interviews With Women in Jazz, and sadly, passed away in August 2016. Next there will be a sort of improvised dialogue between myself at Aaron Bielish's non-traditional traditional piano and recorded excerpts from my interview with Connie for my book. It is a humble tribute to a master musician, and I am very grateful to Aaron for the opportunity to be a part of this ongoing installation/performance series. The performance takes place April 8, 2017, 12:30 p.m. at Lone Star College - Kingwood Fine Art Gallery.
