To hear him tell the story now, Roy stumbled into the jazz scene before he knew what had hit him. “I wish I could play with Miles now. I had just joined at that time and I didn’t know anything. I didn’t even know how the bass sounded. Even with My Goals Beyond, which is such a beautiful album, I still feel that I could redo it now. But, I guess, at that point, whatever I did was right.”

Strange and hypnotic: My Goals Beyond is difficult to categorise, but no less enjoyable for it.

Monaco can range quite freely, as in the balladic Darn that Dream, but always harks back to interpretational obliqueness, even if only in very small ways. Sometimes it's just a matter of cutting a note short, others a strange chord tossed in, but her readings keep the listener on his/her toes. Elsewhere one catches snatches of McLaughlin's Devotion LP, but de-amped, even the My Goals Beyond period. This, of course, was, at that time, following on the period's explorations of wider meadows (give a listen to Ted Dunbar, John Stowell, etc.). Monaco, however, has affixed the sax as her contrast and thereby tempered the freer aspects more to Kirkian antecedents and such.

Can you describe the Alexander 380 in your own words, and what it means to you to compete in it? As someone who cut his teeth road cycling in southern California, the move to Minnesota three years ago was quite the transition. The incredible difference in terrain and introduction of seasons (winter?) challenged me to let go of my SoCal tendencies and reinvent myself. Gravel and the fat bike truly represent two unique aspects of cycling and life here in the Midwest, and Minnesota in particular. It’s winter almost six months of the year, so having a bike that can keep me outside, embracing the conditions, and enjoying all that winter has to offer is very important to me. As such, the fat bike represents my commitment to Minnesota. I’ve already been here three years for school (in dual medical school and graduate school), and have about six left, so many of my goals beyond academics are related to winter fat bike racing, such as the Arrowhead 135. These winter ultras are found only in Minnesota and a few other states (Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, and Alaska). Moreover, living in Minnesota provides the environment to best train for this, and that has me quite excited. A new chapter of my life, it just took some time to make the mental transition from SoCal to fully realize the wealth of cycling opportunities here. I’m not in California anymore, so instead of being jealous about people to get to ride in 70F and sun all year round, the fat bike and gravel racing represent what makes Minnesota unique special to me, two things people from other parts of the country cannot experience or appreciate as readily.

It is true that Indian music has had less of a dialogue with jazz than the traditions of Africa, Cuba and Brazil, the link is there for the taking, and the cross-talking. Over the years, jazz has met up with Indian music—especially percussionists—in the oddest places. Take, for instance, the Taste of India restaurant in Greenwich Village, where John McLaughlin used to sit in with a waiter/tabla player named Badal Roy. The young British guitarist, flown over by Tony Williams, asked Roy to play on his seminal album My Goals Beyond, and the rest is more or less history. Roy has since played with Miles Davis, Pharoah Sanders and, for nearly a decade, with Ornette Coleman. These days, Roy is branching out on his own as well, releasing albums under his own, established name.

Now the time is right for me to respond to my members’ persistent requests to bring back the print magazine. I also need to bring the online magazine and community up to state-of-the-art standards. I would like to do that and much more! (See below for more about my goals beyond the magazine itself.)
