LETTERS
"Compliments...and a question"


I really enjoyed two of the articles in the April/01 University of Chicago Magazine. The article on Karl Meyer and his idealism brought back the spirit of the anti-war movement of the 1960s. Karl was a well respected if somewhat eccentric figure in the Chicago movement, and I am glad to see that he has persevered.

The article "All That Jazz" is also very interesting although I have one bone to pick. In Chris Smith's discussion of jazz at the U of C, there is no mention of Mwata Bowden, who is a faculty member in the music department and the director of the very fine U of C jazz ensemble. Why?

While "All That Jazz" focused on a history of the University of Chicago Jazz Archive, an April/94 Magazine article, "Free Association," featured Mwata Bowden in an account of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, a cooperative formed in Hyde Park in 1965.-Ed.
