Around midweek, I accepted a last-minute freelance offer that was too good to refuse. It had an impossibly short deadline, which I am likely to meet. The assignment involved a lot of listening, research, note-taking, phone calls, more listening and more research. It is why Rifftides has been more or less on hold for a few days. The Rifftides staff just wanted you to know that we have not abandoned the readership. The project is expected to appear later this year. Assuming that I am given permission to do so, I’ll post a heads-up. As for the illustration above, rest assured that the work left no opportunity for couch time and generated no dark thoughts.
Work is nice if you can get it.
That is from one of Thelonious Monk’s great albums of the mid-160s, wisely kept in print by Columbia.
Have a good weekend.
