New Site, Dissertation, Gigs!

Apr 16 | Posted by: Robert Sabin |

I’m really excited to be coming back to the Jazz Gallery in May with the great Oliver Lake and his big band.  Oliver has an energy that is unmatched; it’s so great to be able to play with him.  The band has been together for several years now, and a DVD was just recorded during our performance for the City Asylum of Pittsburg.  I’ll be uploading some clips soon.

Speaking of uploading, the new website is up.  I thought it was time for a change.  I was using Dynamod before this switch to Bombplates, and wanted to move for a while.  Dynamod doesn’t seem to ever improve and they were doing a really poor job of staying up with the times.  No facebook interactivity, twitter, and no way to even copy and paste text from the flash pages.  I sometimes think of hiring somebody to design a site for me, but I really like the concept of not needing a designer or webmaster.  I’d rather have something with less flash (pardon the pun) and more functionality without eating up a lot of time.

My Ph.D. dissertation has cleared the proposal review stage, so now I’m off to the races.   For those that don’t know, I’ll be writing about bassist Gary Peacock and his recorded output during the early 1960s in New York.  Gary is going to let me interview him and present him with some of my transcriptions for a response.  This is going to be an amazing process that I plan on blogging about regularly.  Gary is such a great person and so open about his career and thoughts on music, I feel extremely luck to be able to do this.  I’ve got another heavy bassist (Todd Coolman) on my committee, so I know this is going to be a really amazing experience.

Thanks to everyone for checking out the blog!  Talk again soon,

BOB
