A highly prolific musician/music producer/improv wizard. Used to be one half of Gastr del Sol, with David Grubbs. Also spent some time in Sonic Youth. Produces Wilco albums. He’s on my short list of people I’d like to meet. My wife and I used to listen to his album Eureka all the time. It’s got some serious Burt Bacharach to it.
