In a blog essay posted on the Web site of The American Scholar before Mr. Mitchell's death, Mr. Zinsser said Mr. Mitchell's approach to broken-down pianos (which musicians sometimes encounter on tour) illustrated his approach to life. "I learned long ago that it does no good to complain," Mr. Zinsser recalled Mr. Mitchell telling him. Instead, listen to the keys and put their flatness or sharpness to use. "You say, 'What does it do?' " said Mr. Mitchell, sounding an imaginary clinker on a piano. " 'Will it do anything? Let's check it out' - NY Times obit, reference to http://theamericanscholar.org/what-does-it-do/#.Uj3ivWR4ZEu

Those are some great pictures, Lindy!


And that's a cool article too. I was not aware that Tommy Johnson had any living relatives.

I seem to remember he turns up on Dr. David Evans' compilation of the late 60s called "Going Up The Country" which came out on the British Decca label.  It may have been reissued on CD, but I don't know about that.

Whoops, I haven't seen this thread in a long time. Sorry if I gave anyone the wrong impression, but those are not my pictures, I was just told by the photographer where I could find them.
