"New York's Chelsea Hotel calls itself a 'Rest stop for rare individuals' Some have stayed so long they call(ed) it home. They include W.S. Burroughs, Sid Vicious, Jimi Hendrix, Tennessee Williams, Leonard Cohen, Dylan Thomas, Virgil Thomson, and, since 1977, composer Gerald Busby (born 1935). Busby, precocious pianist and notoriously fabulous cook, writes music as quirky and bohemian as his surroundings: circus music for pipe organ and double harpsichord music for gymnasts are just two that appear on this CD. He has written music for film and dance, theatrical chamber music, and dozens of other works in the repertoire of such distinguished performers as Thomas Hampson, Calvin Hampton, Jerry Grossman, Michael Parloff, and Kenneth Cooper."-Innova
