  1. Dessoff co-commissioned her to write a piece for our Whitman Bicentennial season, co-commissioned with Roomful of Teeth, who co-performed it with us (once via a pre-recorded track, thanks to schedules not aligning, twice live). Honestly, I can't decide to this day what thrilled me more, the piece itself ("None More Than You"), how charmingly down-to-earth she was, performing with Roomful of Teeth, or meeting the astonishing Caroline Shaw. Sigh.
  2. Never ate there either, but my wife and I had always been bemused by the motto. "Solid drink" -- that's what, ice?
  3. Charlie O's! Friedman's, by nature of having a broad menu that does lots of gluten free stuff, and does it creditably well, is a family favorite (my two boys both have Celiac). We've been multiple times to each location.
  4. Love that stuff. I need to try their Yellow. And the Blue. And anything else they may make.
  5. Ha. Mezcal riff on Don't Give Up the Ship. Nice!
  6. She'd had a long struggle over many years and many issues, from MS to a brain tumor to throat cancer. Complications to the throat cancer was the last straw. She was a tremendously caring and strong and vibrant and positive person; she leaves a giant hole in the choir and everywhere she touched.

    At 79. Such a career.
  8. Ooh, or Forthave Yellow. I've never tried it, but I love their stuff and I bet it would fit nicely.
  9. Or maybe Genepy? If that's kosher, which I'm not sure.
  10. Strega would probably be a reasonable substitution. But it'll lack some of the herbal complexity. Ah well.
  11. From there, try a Monte Cassino, a Monte Carlo through a Last Word lens -- 3/4 oz rye 3/4 oz Benedictine 3/4 oz yellow Chartreuse 3/4 oz lemon It's freaking magical.
  12. At 64, from heart attack. Excellent jazz pianist. Soloist, duo recordings with vibraphonist Joe Locke, pianist for Maria Schneider Orchestra (on all but one recording I think? and most of their live gigs), co-leader of Herbie Nichols Project, stalwart in Ben Allison's Jazz Composers Collective from back in the 90's/early aughts. Great talent whose loss leaves a big hole in the NYC scene. Nate Chinen obit
  13. Yes, and also RIP Frank Kimbrough. Huge loss for NYC jazz scene, paused or not.
