Allan Zavod has hit his closing chord.
The first few times I saw MF, Zavod was in the band. After one blisteringly great concert in early October of 1974, the crowd thinned out, roadies were tearing down, and MF was at an autograph table. Zavod came out and went to an old beat-up out of tune upright piano in the gym corner and "wound-down" by extemporizing for about 15 minutes, classical-sounding jazz, blues, avant-garde jazz....a real treat to hear. A few years later I also saw him with Jean-Luc Ponty. He and Ponty were memorable together.
