If a Frog Had Wings He Wouldn’t Bump His Ass so Much

The brilliant and talented piano and TabletPC genuis Hugh Sung has a terrific post about the Sequenza21 concert where he was a star performer.  Hugh is also one of the nicest people alive.

Kyle Gann, who drove two hours down and two hours back to Bard for the concert, has some nice words about the concert here.  Kyle turned 37 yesterday.

Our congratulations to regular Darcy James Argue who is one of the 29 recipients of the latest round of the American Music Center’s Composer Assistance Program (CAP).  The complete list is here

Altman was one of the best.

Update:  Speaking of birthdays, today is Gunther Schuller’s 81st.  Richard Buell tells me that when Schuller was 16 and the first horn of the the Cincinnati Symphony, he auditioned for the Ellington band, playing Johnny Hodges’s charts.

It’s hard to believe Altman’s gone. M*A*S*H is one of my favorites, and I was happy he was the one to put Garrison Keillor on screen: kindred spirits if there ever were any.

I’d like to make some comment about how “musical” a director Altman was. But I’m having trouble substantiating my thoughts.

He directed William Bolcom’s adaptation of his film “A Wedding” for the Chicago Lyric Opera and one of his last films, The Company, was about the Joffrey Ballet.

Sorry if I missed this, but will a recording be made available for those out in the wilderness who couldn’t make the concert?
