These two stories are unrelated. But they're each worth reading.
Here's the nut of Steve Greenlee's piece on jazz man Charles Gayle's live recording:
The date was Feb. 12, 2006. The place was a tiny jazz club in Stockholm. The concert was recorded, and the result is the Charles Gayle Trio's "Live at Glenn Miller Café," released last June on the Swedish label Ayler Records. It may have been the best jazz record of 2006, and most of us missed it. Finding it is nearly impossible. Good luck searching Borders or Amazon.com.
Now that makes me want that record.
Then there's Ken Johnson's review of "Bourgeois in Boston," an exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art. Johnson writes about the art but saves some of his harshest questions for the institution. Is the ICA catering to its donors more than its mission?
