I am very sad to hear that the great poet, artist, film maker Paul Haines passed away on Tuesday. His work he is most famious for in the jazz world is the Libretto for Carla Bley's Escalator Over the Hill. I have had the pleasure of getting to know him a little over the past year or so and I am so sad that it all stops, today, when I read of his passing in an email. He had a great sense of humour
and I look forward to learing more about him and letting others know more about his work. As of late he has been a great
inspiration for me for many new pieces I have been working on with poetry/text.
