RIP Bern Nix
:( Got to see him 4x with Prime Time. Wish I could have seen him again..
Have to admit I'm not all that familiar. I know who he is, but only because he was in Ornette Coleman's orbit. I haven't heard any of his solo stuff, and have heard only a little bit of Prime Time.
I just saw this thread now - this is a big loss for the NYC scene. He obviously loved to play, he recently was playing small somewhat squalid jazz spaces. I was immediately struck by his playing because his sound was so individual and distinctive and outside of the rock/industrial/fusion idiom I knew. I got to see him a bunch of time in his own band and with Ras Moshe and in other configurations. I like to listen to Negative Capability when I'm driving, the CD is very long and helps pass the time easier on very long drives.
