dear pzumst
im afraid im all teched-out
& actually almost a luddite
i still play my old records
but the funny thing about
getting older is that after
hearing pianists like
gould & tureck so many many times
the brain & the ear
brings it all back
my younger brother suggested
i buy an ipod (?)
& something i think
you mentioned
but im quite happy w/what i have
& w/what f minor has
offered me in the way of hi-tech
i had brilliant friends who
left the US when Nixon was
they taped 2 things:
my ccs of Gould vinyls &
their own jazz
he is a rather famous
west coastie jazz/poe &
my guru for many yrs
