CAN do…

two days ago i saw for the first time video recordings of CAN from 1972 and 1974… as a musician, as a composer, as a performer i was entirelly smitten… i have been a CAN fan since the early 80s when i was first introduced to their music by robert iolini, who played bass and guitar in Lingo Babel, the band we had at the time.

seeing these videos my respect for CAN has shot through the roof. what i thought we were doing at the time, keeping within the spirit of improvisation and deep listening and collaboration pales in the face of what i have just been exposed to… that said, i am inspired to continue on my own journey with sound and music and will do so knowing there is a legacy that continues to unfold from the CAN camp, that continues to enlighten me all those years on…
