From the Guardian: “The jazz purist claimed his doctor had warned it was ‘psychologically inadvisable’ for him to listen to anything that could be mistaken for mere contemporary music. … [K]haki-clad police officers listened to the saxophone-playing and drumming coming from the festival stage before agreeing that the purist might, indeed, have a case.”
The band in question? Ochs’ Sax and Drumming Core, the band I’d noted for having a “songlike feel.” One man’s candy is another’s psychologically inadvisable brain poison, apparently.
Part of Ochs’ comment to the Guardian: “After this I will at least have a story to tell my grandchildren.”
