Hey man, thanks for the note. I hadn't seen it till today and I hope we were able to talk at the Trinity show. I also hope that you enjoyed it -- as I recall, it was one of the good ones. I wish I was still able to be a fan of what Koz is doing but after Benji (which I eventually came to appreciate as a cohesive and listenable piece of art as well as a very personal statement fairly well executed), I have had to turn away. There is nothing there for me anymore. It makes me very sad because I came to depend upon Mark for delivering up a consistently wonderful musical experience over the last 2 decades. Unfortunately, I no longer have any hope whatsoever of him returning to anything remotely like what he used to do, and that breaks my heart.
I always feared that it wouldn't last -- that he would croak prematurely and that would be it ..... I'm glad he didn't, but his artistic journey has progressed at a tangent and in many ways it feels worse to me.
Stay in touch,
