Hi. I wrote a long essay on the history of jazz in Palo Alto and included Matt Haimovitz as a footnote, sparked to do such because Ropeadope had included on its blog a link to an item on Matt in the Cincy newspaper and a nice photo. Which subsequently disappeared from my wordpress blog so I thought to re-capture it here.
Coinkydinky, I caught Benjamin Simon and PACO doing a tribute to late Beethoven the other night at Stanford — all of which to my mind begs the question: why is there no proper concert hall in Palo Alto. It would have been great to entice Matt into the debate about getting The Varsity Theatre back on line as a performance venue.
So, and yeah, this is Matt at CBGB I know.
also interviewed Matt by phone for KZSU and in-studio jam with Kraky and SoCalled.
