Don played with Coltrane?  I know back when he was growing up in Detroit he
played bass with Elvin Jones for awhile.  Some of his more significant gigs
since leaving Zappa are Carla Bley, Gil Evans, John Carter/Bobby Bradford,
Jack Bruce and Mike Mantler.

I am playing duo with Don at Lumpy Gravy on Tuesday July 15.  We will be
doing some of the more out-jazz Mothers tunes (such as The Eric Dolphy
Memorial Barbeque), some Carla Bley, Bobby Bradford, as well as many Don
originals.  Don't know how much looping will be involved, but I'm toting
along the Vortex amongst other goodies and we usually do some free playing
that's more textural than jazz per se.

There is still valet parking available.
