Hey Matt,

Nice to see someone else digging RSJ. Some time ago, a bass player friend of mine hipped me to his playing with Ornette Coleman as well as "The Decoding Society." I came up sort of "formally" (drum corps, orchestral training) so back then, he really challenged my naive assumptions about the ways things "should" be done (which was exactly what I needed!).

Thanks for the links--I'm inspired to go dig out some of his CDs that I haven't listened to in a while!
