P.S.  I notice my posting appeared with an attachment, but I didn't attach anything.  Don't open the attachment.  Now I'm really worried!

Marvin "Bugalu" Smith on the cover of the new Cadence Magazine


Thanks, John.  Did you try to look at the complimentary issue?  Did you find things there in such disarray as I did?  Were you able to read the articles / interviews?

Marvin "Bugalu" Smith on the cover of the new Cadence Magazine

I wasn't able to read anything substantial, either.  It looks to me like each page in the pdf is only a short excerpt from the magazine page - less than a full column, even.  It's a frustratingly effective teaser, don't you think?  If I had $65 to spend right now, I'd sign up.

Marvin "Bugalu" Smith on the cover of the new Cadence Magazine


John, based on how little I was interested in reading in that one issue, if I had $65 to spend right now, I'd give it to a musician in need.  Meanwhile, we can hope for updates on http://aboutbugalu.blogspot.com and http://profile.myspace.com/43375860 or go up to Poughkeepsie, NY and ask around for Bugalu.

Marvin "Bugalu" Smith on the cover of the new Cadence Magazine

Folks, I'd like to put a plug in for Cadence.  That magazine has done more for working musicians in blues/jazz/improvisation than any I can think of.  It's the only place I can bear to read writing about music.  Like a lot of print media, they've always been perilously close to the edge of solvency, and have just stopped issuing in print and moved to an online distribution.  Check out their history, ideally with bound volumes at a local library, and you'll see what I mean when I say that they have been an unparalleled chronicler and advocate of creative music for a very very long time.  Be patient with their new online edition, and please support them if you can.

Marvin "Bugalu" Smith on the cover of the new Cadence Magazine

Thanks All! 

I'll email them directly.  Cadence still sells 'The Earthly Recordings of Sun Ra,' right?  For that alone, they deserve our support.  Hardly a day goes by that I don't open that book.  Thanks, too, of course, to RLC & CT for all you guys do.

Marvin "Bugalu" Smith on the cover of the new Cadence Magazine

It's my understanding that Cadence is no longer run by Bob Rusch, David
Haney is the publisher now, and it is now in essence a new publication
(though Mr. Haney has stated an intention to continue it pretty much as
before). As to getting the April issue for free by .pdf, we downloaded the
free April .pdf issue already via the link I sent in, and as I reported,
there are no articles to be read, only a sentence or two, and Marvin
"Bugalu" Smith is not identified on the cover, and his article does not
appear. I do feel it's false advertising to say you are giving something
away if the content has been removed. But if some of you on this list are
going to try getting the issue via Email request instead of the way we did
it, please let us know if the one you get actually has articles in it with
full content.
