Robert Barry (December 4, 1932 - January 8, 2018) - played a.o. with Sun Ra (also The Space Trio - pre Arkestra), Fred Anderson and Ken Vandermark.
I saw Joseph Jarman 20 years ago and still have a postcard he signed.I've been listening to his recordings over the holidays;beautiful playing:
I am listening to the CD 'Old Time Revival' by the Dennis Gonzalez New Southern Quintet, with Alvin Fielder on drums and Malachi Favors on bass. RIP.
Indeed, 'Old Time Revival' by Gonzalez is great. Even better in my opinion is his 'Debenge-Debenge' on Silkheart Records, w/ Fielder plus another drummer, W.A. Richardson. Outstanding stuff. I also had the pleasure of hearing a live gig by a trio of the pianist Joel Futterman, Kidd Jordan, and Alvin Fielder. Will remember that for the rest of my life.
Sorry, it should read: Robert Barry (December 4, 1932 - January 8, 2019)
