Joe didn't give a link the last time I looked . . .
OK, here's a little more info... The review was in an old issue of "Factsheet Five" from 1989, so no link.Too bad, but those were the 1980s, when snail mail was king.
I do remember Gunderloy writing about an online F5, but over two
decades ago and I guess befor things became routinely archived, as they
If only he'd used Usenet...
I was actually scanning someHmmm... perhaps you'd consider scanning the page "Waterworld" was
Kerry Thornley (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerry_Thornley) columns so they'd be available on the web (not for any particular reason, other
than they aren't already on the web, and it's just something to do).
While flipping through the rest of the magazine, capturing the
zeitgeist of 1989, the "Waterworld" review caught my eye. Figured I'd
see whether I could turn up anything about it on the Internet, 17 years later... (man I feel old now) So like I mentioned, a Google search

That "Waterworld" review would have appeared right around the time I started to become interested in jazz (I was in college and had enrolledGlad you did, since the musician is thinking on putting it out on CD,

classes that semester). Factsheet Five didn't review many (if any)
other jazz recordings -- though for all I know, their description of "Waterworld" wasn't accurate, or "jazz" was too narrow of a pigeonhole
etc. But anyway, the word "jazz" there should have caught my eye at
the time, since it was just an unusual context to find a jazz review.
So with that in mind, seeing this review 17 years later, I'm just
curious as to what caused the reviewer (I assume it was Mike Gunderloy)
to take notice.

Looking for Joe Castleman...
