Ethan Iverson on Bill McHenry

One of the best music writer lines I have read…ever… contained in this post:Do The Math : Bill McHenry

It’s sort of like Lester Young playing in a bar on Mars.

Ethan’s review of McHenry’s music was so moving that I had downloaded his new album from eMusic even before I got to the Pres line. (Ok, that’s not entirely true. I was trying to download the new album, but eMusic’s poorly administered and insanely frustrating download software was not cooperating. I finally sorted it out, and am now digging the McHenry as I write this.)

Ethan did something else that I respect in a music writer (or any human for that matter), which was be totally upfront about his motives, interests, and any conflicts thereof. Right on.
