my back pages

On a cold, snowy night forty-four years ago, at a church thirty miles north of Chicago, my wife, Suzanne, and I were married. Music was provided by tenor saxophonist Von Freeman and pianist John Young, both now gone. All of what they played that night—before the ceremony (“Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” “It Never Entered My Mind,” “More”), during (“In a Sentimental Mood” [as Suzanne walked down the aisle]), and after (“My Favorite Things,” “Song for My Father”)—can be heard here (0:15-).

timeless

Bud Powell (1924-1966, piano) with Curly (aka Curley) Russell (bass), Max Roach (drums), “Un Poco Loco” (B. Powell), 1951

 

In the late 1980s, the renowned literary and cultural critic Harold Bloom included “Un Poco Loco” in his list of the most “sublime” works of twentieth-century American art (from his introduction to Modern Critical Interpretations: Thomas Pynchon’s Gravity’s Rainbow).
