An open letter from Alice Russell. June 21, 2011, Brookline, Massachusetts. 1. DO NOT make insulting, mean spirited remarks about anyone or their work; there are a plethora of sites where you can rant unfettered. If you attack someone personally, your comments will be removed. You can post it, but I'm not paying for it. Go elsewhere, and let those artists who are actually interested in discussion and learning have the floor. 2. There will be NO posting of or links to copyrighted material without permission of the copyright owner. That's the law. And if you respect the work of people who make meaningful contributions, you should have no problem following this policy. 3. I appreciate many of the postings from so many of you. Please don't feel you have to spend your time "defending" the LCC to those who come here with the express purpose of disproving it. George worked for decades to disprove it himself; if you know his music, there's no question that it has gravity. And a final word: George was famous for his refusal to lower his standards in all areas of his life, no matter the cost. He twice refused concerts of his music at Lincoln Center Jazz because of their early position on what was authentically jazz. So save any speculation about the level of him as an artist and a man. The quotes on our websites were not written by George; they were written by critics/writers/scholars/fans over many years. Sincerely, Alice

Afterwards I was lucky enough to have dinner with a few of the Certified Instructors of the Concept - Ben Schwendener (Boston), Prince Wells III (St Louis), Marc Rossi (Boston), Robert Weiss (Vienna), Uwe Steinmetz (Berlin) and Gregg Ramsey (Boston). Andy Wasserman played at the event, but didn't make it to dinner.

Visitors, players and speakers included from memory and in no special order Oliver Lake, Marty Erlich, Ran Blake, Neil Leonard, Garry Giddins, Marit Jerstad (Norway), John Cumming, Steve Elman (Berklee), Duncan Heining (GR's biographer), Jock Millgardh (GR's son), The LTO with Brad Hatfield, George Garzone, Pat Hollenbeck, Dave Bargeron, Mike Walker, Billy Ward, Bill Urmson, Ken Cervenka, Stanton Davis, Tiger Okoshi, Lew Soloff, Allan Chase, Jeff Galindo, Hiro Honshuku, and Alice Russell.

A perfect day.

John Cumming is with Serious in London, and was Russell's manager. Steve Elman is not Berklee affiliated; he's a Boston- based broadcast veteran and a writer. I don't think Alice Russell played in the band, but she did speak. It was a remarkable celebration.

hope you're all well. it's a little quiet up here...

chesper, ran played "autumn in new york" it was beautiful and he managed to end it with a really long and pregnant silence - just with his amazing body language and concentration. garzone was incredible too - a solo performance of "i want to talk about you" - with all his inflections and coltrane's.

they all played so what while walking through the church aisles like a new orleans parade... and much more

happy summer,

bob
