The Late Great Terry Callier

Terry Callier 1945-2012
I had been been racking my brains how to acknowledge the genius that was Terry Callier and came across this fantastic podcast tribute from the mighty mighty Marc Mac of Visioneers and 4Hero fame, which covers some of the genius of the great man (you should also check out Marc Mac's other podcasts on Podomatic,especially the Soul Arranger series,sublime!!!) Down Load HERE!                                                                                      
Here's a wonderful interview with Eddie Pillar from Acid Jazz records describing what he had to do to track down  Terry Callier and convince him to reinvigorate his career by coming to London and to play a concert ( I wish I had been there!) HERE!
 one of my absolute
                                                                                     favourite tracks.
