The Best of Jackson Payne: A Novel
by Jack Fuller
Knopf, 321 pp., $25.00
reviewed by Jim Linduff

In The Best of Jackson Payne, Jack Fuller has written a brilliant description of jazz, perhaps the most vivid I have ever read. The novel centers on the chaotic life of Jackson Payne, a Black sax player who struggles with many demons and Charlie Quinlan, a middle-aged, white musicologist and biographer who desperately is trying to understand Payne's life.

Gig Haiku

Gig Haiku
Author(s?) unknown
The following was forwarded to us from Richard Armandi.

Jam session bassist
Observes fourteen soloists
Contemplates murder

Say, do you guys know
"Wedding Song" by Kenny G?
Buy the damn record

Riffing on "Rudolph"
Musicians in red and green
Learn humility

Best man pays sideman
Revealing greed of leader
Rebellion ensues

I'm sending a sub
But don't worry, he'll be fine
He's fresh from rehab

Solo pianist
Freed from all constraints of form
Heedlessly mangles

Jazz nymphs crowd bandstand
Offering carnal delights
My alarm clock rings

The Rich Corpolongo Quartet: Smiles

Rich Corpolongo is a multi-reed instrumentalist; he plays soprano and alto saxophones, clarinet and piccolo with equal dexterity. He one of the few who can play both "outside and inside" equally well—with all of the harmonic control and lyricism of bebop plus all the fire of the free avante guard. He is also a composer who has distilled everything from the blues to Charlie Parker and Coltrane to Stockhausen into his work.
