I've actually heard this record. After taking in the pretty boy on the cover, I thought maybe it was his son and he would be the keeper of the inner mounting flame. Wrong wrong wrong! Dave Matthews-lite (if you can imagine!).

It's now safely in the recesses of a used CD store's warehouse.

There are two Israeli jazz musicians named Avishai Cohen - one bass and one trumpet. I like the bass dude better.

I feel kind of bad for the guy from Art Ensemble Of Chicago, I mean with the persistence of internet memes these days, how many years is it gonna be before jazz guys can discuss "Leroy Jenkins" in public again?

http://www.footstompin.com/artists/jim_reid?view=612

Jim Reid is a world famous Angus folksinger songwriter whose music evokes the romance and humour of the North East of Scotland.

He is without a doubt an outstanding singer and songwriter, and as a lover of the work of poet Violet Jacob, has set many of her poems to music, including the hugely successful Wild Geese (or Norland Wind), which has now become one of the classic folk songs of the twentieth century.

Jim was a founder member of the legendary Foundry Bar Band, after an apprenticeship in various Scottish groups including The Taysiders. His interest in the travelling folk is well known and he had a very special relationship with the late Belle and Alex Stewart of Blairgowrie.

In the introduction to Jim's recently published book The Better O' A Sang, Billy Kaye wrote "Mary Brooksbank is richt, we're aw better o' a song, especially gin it's sung by a maister like Jim Reid".

The guy in question above is actually Matt Gaetz, but apparently Matt Gertz gets an awful lot of people mistakenly tweeting at him. For context: https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/02/27/accused-witness-tampering-matt-gaetz-apologizes-deletes-tweet-insists-he-wasnt-threatening-cohen/

I mostly just posted it because I found the screenshot of repeated "wrong guy" responses amusing.

In 1973 University of Montreal mathematician Václav Chvátal showed that, in a gallery with n vertices, n/3 guards will always be enough to do the job. (If n/3 is not an integer, you can dispense with the fractional guard.) And Bowdoin College mathematician Steve Fisk found a beautifully simple proof of Chvátal’s result.

Wethington said the main problem is that Robert Smith, one of the town's three full-time officers, has a history of being untruthful, using questionable force and generating complaints about his harsh demeanor. And Durant's police chief, he says, is aware of the problems but hired Smith anyway last year even though some of them have to be disclosed to criminal defendants.

In fact there is some famous story about Villa-Lobos and Segovia having a fite about technique and playability, and in one version I heard it was represented as being overheard by John Sebastian, Jr. while Villa-Lobos was at his house, although once I checked the dates and it didn’t seem to work.
