Glad he's discovered Lou Harrison. I'm co-writing the next biography, which we hope to complete it 2007. I can point you to plenty of articles about him, many of which I wrote for various journalistic outlets. His work is performed and recorded often, most recently in a terrific series by the Pacific Symphony last spring. And anyone can order the Music Primer directly from Peters (the music publisher) for $22: http://www.edition-peters.com/php/main_search.php?composer=HARRISON&restrict=CW

New World Records has re-released the wonderful CRI recording of Lou's chamber and gamelan music (CRI 613). It features the Concerto in Slendro, Main Bersama-Sama, Threnody for Carlos Chavez, Serenade for Betty Freeman and Franco Assetto, the really wonderful String Quartet Set from 1978, and the 1942 Suite for Percussion. Its on New World 80643, beautifully remastered so the sound is excellent.
