Darcy James Argue wins "Best Debut" in Village Voice poll
Congratulations to my partner, Darcy Argue, on his outstanding showing in this year's Village Voice Jazz Critics's poll. Darcy's album, Infernal Machines (New Amsterdam) placed first in the Best Debut category and fourth overall.
It's a brilliant album, the culmination of years' work. Any reasonable person would have told you that it was impossible to move to New York and become a big band leader in the 2000's, but Darcy showed everyone.
Congratulations also to my friend Linda Oh who also made the list for her Entry (Linda Oh Music).
