“I first meet Porous back in ’83 when we were both touring in separate jazz bands.
He was a well versed oboe player and had the reputation for peeing himself on stage
after too many whiskey sours. I, on the other hand, had little notoriety but had been
introduced to him in an awkward situation. After a late session in a smokey Turkish
basement Porous came down the stairs with two beautiful blonds on both arms. He flicked
his cigarette onto the face of the bartender and winked in my direction. I lost control
of my oboe and nerve, never to play again- instead deciding right then and there to
follow Porous’s work to my death. It’s 2007 now and Porous makes drawings of boobies
and penises. Next year he’ll probably be partying in the international space station.
I’ll think of playing the oboe again but know that there’s no reason.” -Van Edwards
