Is L.A. the Center of the Creative-Music Universe?

Probably not. But not for a lack of effort on Adam Rudolph's part. His series of concerts and workshops with his Go: Organic Orchestra sound to me (from the press releases I've received) to be absolutely mouth watering. Go to to learn more.

Adam Rudolph was one of the most giving and positive people I interviewed for the book Music Universe, Music Mind. His stories about his playing experiences at the Creative Music Studio with the Mandingo Griot Society and a group of Turkish musicians will give you a true appreciation of the meaning of world music.

Some quick news bullets:

Be in the know! Read it! The Creative Music Studio was the twentieth century's most forward-looking musical community in all of creative-jazz-avant-garde-experimental-new-world music.
