How dare we spend so much valuable energy answering such questions as "What is Jazz?".

My dear friend,

I will definitly miss these endless conversations during lunch or dinner, while walking in the streets of New York or Paris, in the metro, at our place... about music, politic, art(s), literature, New York and food, your favorite item!
You will miss to Christine and I.
You were so important for RogueArt; not only for your two great books (with Matthew Shipp for the first one and Jacques Bisceglia for the second one), your unique album (with Dave Liebman) and your countless liner notes, but also because you were with us from the very beginning, encouraging us as much you can, in your own way.
You were part of RogueArt. Without you, RogueArt won't be what it is now.
Just two days ago, we were exchanging on liner notes corrections for the next Matt Shipp albums to come out soon and we were about to meet again as I will be in New York at the end of the week; it won't happen anymore...
Thank your for what you were!
We love you!
