Good Read re: Astral Weeks

I came across a great interview from last fall with the producer of Astral Weeks. He talks a lot about the bassist on the album, Richard Davis. I'd heard quite a few of Davis' recordings with Andrew Hill before I realized that he was the same guy who'd played on Astral Weeks. He's got an amazing resume for someone with so little mainstream name recognition, but I guess jazz bass has never really been a ticket to fame and fortune.
