Benefit for Lois Hashikawa Levin
Details about this show are still coming in, but right now it's looking like the band "WHITE" will play a set (with Alan White, of course), I'll play solo, or with my band not sure yet, and I'll sit in with members of Apple Jam, and Alan White and we'll recreate his first gig with John Lennon and Eric Clapton: LIVE PEACE 1971

New World presents twelve original compositions by
John Schussler and Geoffrey Castle, plus a stormy rendition of
Ornette Coleman's "Lonely Woman" and a funky arrangement of
several traditional Irish tunes in "Farewell to Inwood."
Originally published as the Guarneri Undergound's first album,
New World is now remastered to be clearer than
ever, and features several tracks that have become audience and
Much more than an exposition of the violin, [New
World] is a world's fair of music that tantalizes
with its sounds, sights, and smells. This group is a native
market in a big city, a bazaar by a pyramid where incense
lingers in the air. The musicians switch from fez to
sombrero to top hats as they unearth the beauties of North
African, Spanish, Irish and classical forms. … With
so many groups playing at rather than with world music, it's
refreshing to hear a concept that is so unified. The
violinists really understand how versatile the instrument is
and are fearless in casting it in so many diverse settings.
Wow! Did this really come from Seattle?
