Dick Metcalf
Archive of Articles

Dick Metcalf began playing music at a very early age.  Since boogie-woogie wasn't quite kosher in the W.A.S.P. environs he grew up in (northeastern Pennsylvania), he had to wait several years for his music to be accepted.  .In the ensuing years, he wandered the world (in uniform until 1988), breathing in the music & energy from cultures as disparate as the United States, Germany, Yemen, Korea and Thailand.  Those travels made him appreciate the musics of many cultures as a friend that could be relied upon, even in the darkest of times... as a sort of energy that could aid in healing emotional pain... and ultimately as a form of communication that is able to convey all colors on the palette of emotion!  Along the way he dabbled in poetry - reading it, writing it and eventually performing it.  Several chapbooks later, the natural (r)evolution from words to music have resulted in several things... a WWW magazine called IMPROVIJAZZATION NATION, a tape catalog of over 70 releases and over 40 CD releases.  He enjoys writing about music and the musicians that perform it, as well as the developments in technology that have allowed musicians to be much more independent.  

Dick is currently the technology editor for "the Improvisor" (the bible for improvisors), as well as editor of "Improvijazzation Nation";  he also plays on and produces CD's for his own label, Zzaj Productions and for other artists.  He has performed with some notable artists through the past 20 years, such as LaDonna Smith, Davey Williams, Wally Shoup Bret Hart, Ernesto Diaz-Infante and Thom The World Poet (who is a sort of poetic spokesman for GONG, as well as being the Em-Cee for this year's Quarkstock festival).
