These were taken across the sea, in Denmark, where Neill has spent much of the past several years, writing, producing, teaching "Songwriting and Song-wronging"), recording and performing. These photos never seem to turn up on a google image search, but we like them and thought we'd put them on our site too. Dig that pinkie action.

Thanks to Rich Miller for this photograph. It was a great night, we were proud to participate and we played well, really well. Scroll over the headline to read about it in the Village Voice "Sounds of the City" online edition – who gets the first mention? Might run in the print edition tomorrow. We certainly hope so.
We made some very cool fans too: David Amram, who spoke with Neill composer-to-composer, a most gratifying experience given that Mr. Amram is among the purest of music-makers; Lenny Kaye, who wants to be in our Fan Club (he is most welcome to start one) and Kim Gordon, no less. One of these days we'll post some music online. Anybody know how to embed a player on blogspot? We just can't do the myspace thing. Myspace is owned by FOX. Might move over to ning.com.
Open to suggestion!

I just bought a wonderful little watercolor on rice paper called Messenger by the Brooklyn artist Suyeon Na, at an auction to support the A.I.R. Gallery in Dumbo. So I went to look at her website, when what to my wondering eyes did appear.... Now that's a flutterbox.
I sold a piece at the auction too. Both our works went for the minimum bid, WPA prices, frankly. Now is a good time to buy art! Have you looked at jazzpaperscissors on blogspot.com, lately? There's a reality-based repricing underway – to make room for the new!
All best wishes for a much-improved decade!
