Special Guest: Greg Tate
Saturday, July 10, 2004
Kurt Andersen and music critic Greg Tate talk about why creative people feel the need to steal from each other.
Greg Tate is a music critic for the Village Voice, and he leads the ensemble Burnt Sugar — an improvising big band that borrows equally from Miles Davis and Sun Ra. Tate’s books include Everything but the Burden: What White People Are Taking from Black Culture, Midnight Lightning: Jimi Hendrix and the Black Experience, and Fly Boy in Buttermilk: Essays & Tales of American Music & Culture, from Be-Bop to Hip-Hop.
