Paying tribute to Marco Eneidi -- for once, honoring a musician who isn't dead, just leaving. After a little more than a decade in the Bay Area, Marco is departing for a chance to live in Vienna for a while. He's already got gigs lined up and has a line on a place to stay -- an excellent start. Here's hoping he has better luck there than here.

Marco shopped his music around to labels, but like a lot of free-jazz artists, he ended up having to release a lot of CDs on his own. Most of his stuff can be purchased through Cadence:

The kind folks at the Eremite record label released one of Marco's CDs and also resell some of the discs on Marco's Botticelli label:
