March 14 WRFR Radio Show 9am- 11am 93.3 FM

1991 Journal Entry "Projects for the Future"
Tomorrow I'm going to feature Tethered Moon. The Trio includes Masabumi "Poo" Kikuchi on piano, Gary Peacock on bass and Paul Motian on drums. They released 7 recordings between 1991- 2002. From the obscure Tethered Moon Plays Jimi Hendrix to my favorite Chansons D'Edith Piaf, I'll play something from each CD. Of course I'll have a few diversions here and there and several readings, mostly from Paul's journals. There's a couple of interviews you can check out:  Kikuchi by Ethan Iverson Do The Math and Gary Peacock by Florence Wetzel All About Jazz.
