New York Times | Race and Policing by Alan Scherstuhl, June 24, 2020
The pianist and “Late Show” bandleader has been bringing musical wake-up calls to events across New York.
Remembering Jimmy Lovelace, friend and great drummer who used to play for Barry Harris’s workshops at the Jazz Forum (early ’80’s). Lace was one cool cat! He could also swing his butt off! He played on a great album with flutist Prince Lasha that also featured Herbie Hancock & Cecil McBee. We did a gig together once at Citicorp Center Atrium, NYC around 1980 and he absolutely burned on Caravan. Lace is also remembered for his loose joints and somali rose oil – “Thank You, My Friend!” (Photos by Mitchell Seidel)
