Loren Pickford Heads Out
Many people in the area only know Loren Pickford as the jazz musician who settled in Kansas City in the wake of Katrina. While it's a compelling soundbite, there's so much more to the former Louisianan. His solid resume hints at what's on display on this shaky video filmed at the Blue Room in July. The world music themes and spiritual explorations heard here evoke John and Alice Coltrane. It's wondrous music of the highest order.
