Sorry Lawrence but it struck me as funny (in a light, amusing kind of way)
when you said you gave credence to what someone said because they were a
brilliant musician.  It sounded like a cultured version of 'I don't trust
him his eyes are too near together'
However it's obvious from what you say below that we both referred to
different episodes outlined in Paul's letter.   I have no doubts at all that
Caroline Kraabel (who by the way is playing in Sheffield next month, details
at bottom of page) was and will be thoroughly fed-up with the antics and
attitudes of some men on the improvised music scene.  I have witnessed and
even been the recipient of some of this deplorable and, as I said in my last
letter, infantile behaviour.
But this is a different thing entirely to accusing men of playing music like
err men!  Obviously Caroline didn't like what they were doing but surely
this is an ARTISTIC  and not a GENDER question.  I don't think we disagree
on this and yes, we've only got the written report to go on and she may have
been depressingly  misrepresented.   Your suspicions are probably not
without foundation.
