Review: Billy Bang and Bill Cole - Billy Bang/Bill Cole

What can I say about Billy Bang?
  |   Comments
As a relative newbie to the world of jazz, I'd not heard of Billy Bang prior to receiving his recording with Bill Cole to review. There it sat, waiting in the pile with the rest. Possessed by something probably otherworldly, I slipped the disc in and closed my eyes. Bang, a violinist, jammed himself into my consciousness with startling immediacy. I had to know more, I had to "discover" Billy Bang for myself. A quick search turned up some disheartening news that affected me more than I thought it could. Billy Bang died just a few days ago on April
