One thought on “Songs for Cooper-Moore

  1. Sebastian,

    How are you.
    I know this has been up for a while.

    Thank you very much.
    What a set to be included in.

    Nana! I had the opportunity to sit in with Don Cherry at the Village Vanguard, 1987, and Nana was on the first row. The whole time playing I was thinking of him being there.

    I only heard Glen Velez live twice, once at a NY loft in 1974 where he was playing for dancers, and not again until 1985 at a program at the New School that included Steve Reich, Pauline Oliveros, and Elliot Carter. He became an important personage in my learning and listening.

    Hermeto is a genius.

    Twenty years ago when my wife and I moved from the East Village to El Barrio I would often hear Eddie Palmieri rehearsing his band at Museo El Barrio on 5th Avenue. I feel blessed that I am able to hear such bands.

    Again, thank you for considering me anywhere near the other on this particular set list.
