Spanish cops called in over allegation that band was playing "contemporary" music at jazz festival, medical necessity cited


Spanish Civil Guardsmen were dispatched to the Sigüenza Jazz Festival to gather evidence as to whether the Larry Ochs Sax and Drumming Core band were actually performing jazz or "contemporary music." Their attendance followed a complaint from a festivalgoer whose doctor "had warned it was 'psychologically inadvisable' for him to listen to anything that could be mistaken for mere contemporary music." .............

coincidentally, on my way into work yesterday morning, i heard ochs being interviewed by a bbc reporter (bbc on npr). ochs took it all in stride.he was amused and confused at the same time. the audience was small too. he said about 200 or 250 people. very small town too he said. the interviewer could NOT stop from giggling though. how could he?
