Fiscally Conservative, Socially tolerant, Anti-War
This one is beyond my pay-grade.
Now that I think about it, double b, I believe that Mr. Towner may in fact be American.
Ralph Towner was born in 1940 in Chehalis, Washington (that is the United States). Not that I care, as I don't listen to jazz. According to Wikipedia, one of the styles Mr. Towner is known for is "avant-garde jazz-influenced free improvisation". In other words, the worst kind of jazz (*puke*).
I'm not sure that I agree with Wikipedia's characterization, wd. At least in the '70s, Mr. Towner's work wasn't at all like "free jazz" (you know, the Ornette Coleman type stuff). Yes, being that it was in fact jazz, there was indeed SOME improvization, but it wasn't of the chaotic free jazz nature.
