Hello good peoples --
On the day of Charles Gocher's recent
memorial, I was compelled to compile a
collection of tracks both for Charlie
(stuff I might have played for him if
given more time/etc) and in tribute to
him. Dig it {below}. Twas an inspiring
time making it, in a stream-of-choice
style ala Charlie. Impulsively talking
about it that evening wasn't quite as
smooth, however, as booze///emotions
and public speaking don't always mix
very well! Anyhow, on to what's most
important: HERE's TO YOU, Charlie...
...and pls pardon me for not puttin'
a Giovanni Hidalgo track in there...
...note, however that he has got some
wicked vids on youtube, in case your
heavenly opium den happens to have a
Wi-Fi setup ;-) ...and I'll add that
the way R.Kirk's Bright Moments snips
out @ the end sho' ain't ideal... but
what the hey... YOUR MUSIC GOES *ON*

Lastly -- I found scans of an old Sir
Richard Bishop interview in my files -
(I THINK it's from 2005) and figured I
would post these as well... enjoy :-)

Humble regards,
James Kirchmer
