Parker/Lewis: can't lose (sorry)

I was 19 years old when I met the people in the AACM. It was just dumb luck that I almost literally stumbled upon Muhal, Pete Cosey, people like that. I was walking on 87th and Bennett and I saw a band rehearsing in this children’s center. I poked my head in, and that was how I met them. They had their Monday night band, and then after the initial period of “Who is this guy?” they let me play.

If you liked Peter Margasak's profile of musician, author, and academic George Lewis, author of A Power Stronger Than Itself: The AACM and American Experimental Music, you'll also enjoy this conversation between Lewis and Jeff Parker from BOMB.
