"Gittin' to know" George Lewis

Check out the maiden issue of Critical Studies in Improvisation, in which you can read "Gittin' to Know Y'all: Improvised Music, Interculturalism and the Racial Imagination," by the soulfully erudite George Lewis. George--trombonist, scholar, electronic-music trailblazer-- was one of several AACM musicians who helped to give the Creative Music Studio its distinctive flavor and to help garner its international reputation.

"Critical Studies in Improvisation/ √Čtudes critiques en improvisation is an open-access, peer-reviewed, electronic, academic journal on improvisation, community, and social practice housed at the University of Guelph." (from the website)
