While we were in New York over Thanksgiving, Elvis Costello was scheduled to sit in on a couple shows with Lee Konitz at Iridium. We thought about going but didn't, mainly for cash flow reasons.

Anyway, it turns out Elvis didn't play the shows, because Konitz's bass player -- the legendary Gary Peacock -- decided to throw a strop at the soundcheck and refused to play with him. Things got worse when Iridium volunteered to fire Peacock if EC agreed to play; and when Elvis refused this arrangement, failed to notify the punters lining up that he wasn't going to play. Ooh, it's handbags in the free-jazz/adult-pop-crossover community!
