Butch Morris >> do you know him or of him?
The man who started the downtown scene, wether he got credit for it or not is I guess a " time will tell " situation , but Butch is a master , a true ninja masta. Basically the man knows what art is , it's not about liking art or not but knowing it is a whole different story. To be alert , to be in the moment , to be basically ahead of time itself but at the same time be just here . To be ready to invent things and ideas in a split second and turn them around and make it beautiful. Thats how I would describe it this morning the day after he conducted us as Nublu Orchestra ...there's just nothing like it out there...and it feels fresh ...in this karaoke time we're living in.
Here with photographer /film maker Burcu .

On davis and the original Djuke music players sounded great ! This band is getting better and better every time I hear them . Its like Jimi Hendrix-Sly Stone -Sun Ra combination...only in NYC !! Another only in NYC band was the Sunday nite show Juini Booth presented with him on bass ,Spaceman on guitar and Victor Jones on drums. Sun Ra alumnis took the music far far away from planet earth . Juini Booth , is a legendary baseman who has played besides Sun Ra for years , Juini was the bass player with the infamous Joe henderson Big Band back in 1968 that was never recorded, then Juini went on to play with Shelly Manne , Art Blakey , Tony Williams lifetime band , McCoy Tyner and so on...Tuesday nite ; Nublu Orchestra with Butch Morris conducting !! ... swing by .. .. ohh and Eyvind Opsvik played some great music early set Sunday with Tony Malaby , Kenny Wollesen and Jacob Sacks !
