Tom Cora : Gumption In Limbo
The untimely departure of genius cellist & multiinstrumentalist Tom Cora was an immense loss to the worldwide creative music community. He was simply one of the very best. And played with all the best. This is the only studio one of his three solo cello albums and is pure Cora.
A friend of mine was lucky enough to witness one of his solo appearances and he told me this little anecdote: Cora went to a walk before the concert and met and befriended some neighbourhood children. Invited them to the show and finally when they showed up, he introduced them to the audience and played them a potpourri of cartoon tunes. Don't know why, but every time i think of him, these pictures pop up in my mind...
