From the Bronx, by way of Haiti and Montreal. A 70s/80s pop music auteur; an accessible avant-gardist, jumbling rock, musicals, and several eras of black-diaspora musics. As a subversive disco producer, he gave many urban kids their first taste of Pink Floyd (a cover of "Have a Cigar"), Duke Ellington reeds, and Dylanesque social commentary (the original version of his "There But For the Grace of God Go I", produced for a "band" called Machine). Co-conspirator and bassist in Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band; co-founder of Kid Creole and the Coconuts.
