I will forego the usual Branford joke to say this: Pall Malls, Garcia? Jesus, buddy.

Huh. No idea.

Coleman. Jazz legend. He loved Jerry’s harmonic sense.

That is the Steinberger guitar that Jerry 1st attempted playing anything on following his coma. I guess his thinking was “Well, if its gonna suck, might as well have it happen on the suckiest instrument I can think of”. Or, Bobby was asked to bring along a guitar when he visited next ” No hijinks, Weir. Just grab the plainest, most run-of-the-mill, least ostentatious, most un-White Lion-like, non-Jewy sounding one you’ve got. Are we clear?”

Probably during recording sessions for Ornette’s “Virgin Beauty” album. One of the three tracks on which Jerry plays here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMpulMxkzoc
I do know Jerry was aware of Coleman’s theory of harmolodics – check it out, cool concept, necessary for a ‘modern’ approach for improvised music.
Keep it up TotD!
