Topnotch saxophone player & fearless philosopher Gilad Atzmon blew Madison away Friday night with a powerful lecture at the University of Wisconsin, then a jam session with members of Madison's premiere dance band, VO5, at the Weary Traveler Freehouse on Williamson Street.
Gilad is currently being witch-hunted by a bunch of folks who are apparently too fearful to think clearly. Their attacks on him don't hold up to scrutiny. Since I know what it feels like to be witch-hunted by the forces of ignorance - and since I love Gilad as a person and respect his work - I am putting some time and energy into defending him.
