another mastermind leaves the planet

RIP TED CURSON


Well, last week we had Elliot Carter and H.W. Henze taking off and now it's Ted Curson, who had the formidable resume of playing with Mingus, Dolphy, Shepp, Cecil Taylor and Andrew Hill. We've got some very large empty chairs to fill down here.

TEARS FOR DOLPHY

By the way, if you want to hear more, WKCR is doing a special Curson broadcast this Sunday.
