photos from the 18 september brötzmann/adasiewicz concert in marfa, texas.  thanks to ballroom marfa! + enjoyable observations about the concert (that make up for the rather crazed fact-checking errors) from the big bend sentinel.

YOUR PAL HERE, THE DRUMMER, TOM BRUNO

It's with a heavy heart that i report the passing of tom bruno, drummer in TEST & such storied loft era enterprises as the new york city artists' collective & 501 canal collective. tom was a soulful & articulate musician, & as those who knew him will attest, a humble & inspirational dude. for me personally tom's positive vibes & generous humor were crucial to surviving the fantastic grueling dreams that were the '98 & '99 TEST tours. as i listen to his inimitable pressurized rolling sound on the kit & remember his extraordinary dedication to jazz music i am touched by a great life. to borrow one of his many memorable expressions, he was "always coming from the love side." condolences to ellen christi & to the musicians who made the journey with him. tom bruno, 1937-2012 (photo by michael wilderman, 1974). 

as a footnote, a couple months ago eremite & TEST agreed to the release of TEST's 1999 performance at the velvet lounge in chicago. ETA for that is early 2013.
