Darcy James Argue wins "Best Debut" in Village Voice poll

Darcy James Argue, originally uploaded by Lindsay Beyerstein.

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).


How cool is that?

Some of the guys have opened a bottle of two buck chuck ( cheap red wine from Trader Joe's ) in the office

I lift my plastic glass to you!

Cheers, Phantom. Happy New Year!

Congrats! It's a well deserved prize.

It is indeed a brilliant album. I gave my wife a copy for an extremely selfish birthday present, and it gets a lot of play.

Congratulations to yer man.

Well done! (New York knows what it likes.)

Are there any samples on YouTube we can listen to?

The NY Mets have just given a big contract to Jason Bay, another BC native who will be playing the outfield

Trust a philosopher to have a partner named Argue.... ;)
