On Arthur Russell

He was born Charles Arthur Russell in 1952, in Oskaloosa, Iowa. Although like many of us, he went through phases of hobbies such as astronomy or aquariums (!) music was the thing that maintained his interest. He started to learn piano and developed an incredibly strong ear which enabled him to play a tune after hearing it just once. When an opportunity came to join the orchestra at school, he decided to take up what had been his mother's instrument, the cello. He would become inextricably linked with this instrument and would ultimately push to it's very limits. Avant-garde composer Philip Glass would later comment on his style "This was a guy who could sit down with a cello and sing with it in a way that no one on this earth has ever done before, or will do again." --Chris Menist via http://www.djfriendly.co.uk/more_arthur.php [Sept 2006]
