I’m also really looking forward to some time spent totally away from the Internet. I honestly can’t remember the last time I went a day without accessing the web, let alone a week (which is what I’ll be doing). This is something that all of us should probably be doing (disengaging from the web, I mean…. though going to Cuba is something that I’d highly recommend as well!), and I’m looking forward to being totally removed from phone, email, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
I set a couple of all-music podcasts to post while I’m gone, so look forward to an episode featuring new releases from the Solitunes label and another episode featuring a preview of the latest release from the great jazz bassist Todd Coolman (a previous Contrabass Conversations guest). you can also check out more all-music episodes like John Grillo’s Per Questa Bella Mano, the Koussevitzky recordings, and Frederick Zimmerman practice tapes.
I can’t wait to share some stories from Cuba when I get back!
