The prison house is a tough school but it saved the young Maurice McIntyre and reconnected him with music. In the late 1960s McIntyre became one of the most passionate and articulate spokesmen of the Chicago-based Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, and an exponent of fiery but spacious "spirit jazz".

Words: Yumorous, adj.

SOME HANG on every breath Clinton spares from that fabled cigar. The more sophisticated, making do with John Walsh's summary on Tuesday, learned that the President's secretary had not watched.
