Jack and I met at a film class given at the Cal
campus. If I remember correctly he had asked Larry Eigner how he
could be helpful and the film class was Larry's choice. Larry was
quite disabled so Jack had to schlep a wheelchair in and out of his
rather small car. No easy feat.
The first time I heard Jack and Adelle perform (early 90’s probably)
I had never heard two performers talk at the same time without my
being annoyed. But when they gave forth I was wonderfully excited by
my disorientation. I think “blown away” is the expression. It was
the way I felt when I first heard John Coltrane and a couple of
other musicians perform in Berkeley in the 60’s. I didn’t know
exactly what was happening to me and I liked that.
