    Above and Below is incredible, I wore that out back then. Earliest Mark Turner sighting for me. Leons next was trio on Columbia and he played that music at a free show at Skidmore. Bass Drum, Snare & 1 Cymbal
    What ever happened to Leon?

    A Mary Jane Leach sighting! Her Julius Eastman resurrection is perhaps the most incredible musical story from this area ever. Almost every major newspaper in the world in 2016 reviewing a recording of a concert CD from a show on New Scotland avenue in ’74? GTFOH
