Chance Meeting
Friday June 23rd, 2023 with Heavy Ben
Georges and Russells

Chance meeting on a Helluva Town of a George and a Russell Today we mark the birth date of a singular George Russell, yet there are many Georges and many Russells so let's not limit ourselves to one individual. George Russell (1923-2009) was a pioneer of modal jazz, integrated electronics and avant-garde elements into jazz, and wrote "Russell's Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization" that re-conceptualized the matching of scales with chords. Pictured: George Russell records for explorations into jazz, electronics, outer views, soul, ezz-thetics, vertical, stratus seekers, essence, space age, outer thoughts, stratusphunk, time spiral, esoteric circles (to embiggen the show icon, right-click and choose "Open image in new tab")
