NAME: Michael Bisio
BAND AFFILIATION: Matthew Shipp Trio
1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … So long ago … trying to remember, I’m going with Flowers by the Rolling Stones.
2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … Van Morrison at RPI, but not the Field House. It was a very small room in one of those old brick buildings going down Peoples (I think) Ave. It was very early in his career, don’t think it was a $5 ticket. My memory: I walked into the room and was very surprised it was just that, a room. The band set up on on the floor. They had already started. Van Morrison was playing alto and singing. My barely teenage id was in heaven.
