Time for something just a little bit different.
Short version: In 1981 Art was touring with Milcho Leviev, Tony Dumas, and Carl Burnett. After the gig one night, under the influence, Art wrote a tune (see the full story in the blog). In the excitement and confusion of touring, the tune was forgotten. After Art died, the following year, I found the music Art had scribbled during that peculiar night, got curious, and asked Milcho, who was still living in Los Angeles at that time, if he could make anything of it. I wanted to hear it! We got together at his house and he worked out what he believed Art had in mind. Being a prolific and brilliant composer, himself, Milcho may have added or subtracted details as he read it. I'll leave that judgment to musicians who can view and hear the music, now.
