"It seems to me that to organize on the basis of feeding people or righting social injustice and all that is very valuable. But to rally people around the idea of modernism, modernity, or something is simply silly. I mean, I don't know what kind of a cause that is, to be up to date. I think it ultimately leads to fashion and snobbery and I'm against it."

Carla Bley - A Genuine Tong Funeral - Lament - Intermission Music
A mutual friend told me that Larry Coryell died the other day. I only met him once, I don't really remember much about it, I have to admit my attention was focused on another musician there. He was a good guitarist who played with some really fine musicians. His work with Gary Burton is his work that I like best.
