Reading down the list of collaborators Douglas assembled for the New York debut of Metamorphosis at Jazz at Lincoln Center's Appel Room on March 3, you knew instantly this would be no risk-averse affair. Alongside Douglas in the front line were trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith and saxophonist Oliver Lake, each an iconic bandleader who hailed from one of the formidable regional collectives that fomented stylistic revolutions during the late '60s.

National Sawdust has not only taken a keen interest in monitoring and evaluating the current state of music journalism and criticism from its inception, but also more recently has pursued an active role in fostering its continued health. We talk regularly with journalists, critics, institutions, and other influential figures about the state of our collective affairs – now, we'll be sharing some of those conversations with the reading public.

Just because an event is inconspicuous, it does not follow that what's transpiring is inauspicious: a point handily illustrated by the performance that Sarah Davachi, a Canadian composer and electronic musician, presented in her New York debut at Trans-Pecos on February 28. For the fortunate few dozen in attendance, the music lived up to Davachi's sizable, well-earned reputation.
