Miles. I would ask him what he's reading these days.
Yes. I'm a drummer and singer.
The Lily Pad. It's the most intimate venue in the Boston area. Then there's the Regattabar. I've been there so many times and it feels comfortable. We used to take Bus #1 from Berklee to Harvard Sq. and see Elvin Jones and Tony Williams and others.
If I absolutely had to choose, I guess I would settle on Keith Jarrett's "Personal Mountains". It is quite a fantastic live album of some of the most beautifully complex and fine music in the world.
I'm a musician. I play and enjoy listening to all jazz, but here I'm particularly interested in meeting others who enjoy the under-represented world of ECM, such as the music of Keith Jarrett, Jan Garbarek, Bobo Stenson, etc.
