AACM/Great Black Music in Philly

As if it wasn’t enough to be having this Feldman festival, at pretty much the same time Ars Nova Workshop is presenting an important AACM festival, including performances by Wadada Leo Smith, Henry Threadgill, Roscoe Mitchell and much more. Read details here, and read a newly posted huge Do the Math interview with Threadgill here. (A quibble for Ethan Iverson – Pete Johnson’s music is harder than any Chopin etude? seriously?)
