    Thanks so much to Carol Riewe and KZSC for a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxed interview Feb. 1s). Although my first record (a single) was released on Liberty in 1964, my first album (an LP) didn’t come out until 1969 on Verve. I recorded it in ’68 while signed to Frank Zappa.

    Nobody, and I mean nobody, comes close to Essra Mohawk… Her music is amazing and she is a great thinker as well. Thank you KZSC for showcasing this fabulous artist and thank you Essra for your art!
