Lament For A Straight Line reprints portions of a Muhal Richard Abrams interview from 20 years ago.

The pianist-composer is celebrating his 80th birthday with a romp at Roulette on Thursday night. He’ll use two discrete ensembles, one with drummer Adam Rudolph and electronics whiz Tom Hamilton, the other with reed player Marty Ehrlich and bassist Brad Jones. Abrams’ talents as a provocateur have made their mark since the mid-60s, when he raised the Association for the Advancement for Creative Musicians off the ground.
