Summer’s usually a bit slow here at the ARC, but not this year. The above is a pile of recently donated LPs by North Carolina horn player and jazz professor George Broussard. Mostly jazz and very nice. Thanks to appraiser Scott Neuman (and his lovely daughter) for making this donation possible
The picture above reminds me that about ten of us here have been busy prepping for the great Chinese adventure. What’s that? Well, its a shipload of CDs off to Shenzhen to be digitized. More next week as too busy to give you the whole story now.
Another street showstopper is this larger-than-life dancing in the street photomural that appeared, unannounced last week on Franklin St. It’s by French artist JR + featuring NY City Ballet principal dancer, Lauren Lovette.
One nice thing encountered at the budget burning man-ish fest in Wassaic, NY last week is this sync/sink mixer – a play on the dual turntables giving everyone a chance to create some drip-hop.
