musical thoughts

Listening to live music, as I was over the weekend (hearing this guy with a quartet Saturday night, then by himself Sunday afternoon), reminds one, repeatedly, that this moment is irretrievable.

Monday, 9/19/11

Dub shows aren’t an everyday thing in Chicago, so last night, despite the weather (rain) and weariness (from traveling to see a client in prison), I ventured out to a club to catch this guy. A show like this isn’t just an aural experience: each beat of the bass vibrates your ribcage.

Mad Professor (AKA Neil Fraser, born 1955, Guyana)  

Live, London, 2011
