morning :)
  Fri. 4/20/12 9:14am Dead Corporate Eyes:

hey Scott, happy Friday!
  Fri. 4/20/12 9:14am Cheri Pi:

Mornin', love this album.
  Fri. 4/20/12 9:18am Andrew Waterloo:

Good morning!
  Fri. 4/20/12 9:25am northguineahills:

Still have that morning feeling, even though I've been up a few hours. Hope the music keeps that fog up, as I like it.
  Fri. 4/20/12 9:36am Dead Corporate Eyes:

dolphins, into my present
  Fri. 4/20/12 9:37am lane:

to crib a line from Vorsprung Duch Tecnink... "Morning, Robots!"
Avatar Fri. 4/20/12 9:42am Scott:

Hola.
  Fri. 4/20/12 9:44am Cheri Pi:

I knew you were going to play the Mad Scene!!!
Avatar Fri. 4/20/12 9:45am Scott:

How did you know?
  Fri. 4/20/12 9:47am Cheri Pi:

because I was starting to type a request for you to play it and before I could finish you did!
  Fri. 4/20/12 9:47am Cheri Pi:

Mad Scene=my stepson BT's band. I'm so proud.
Avatar Fri. 4/20/12 9:48am Scott:

I love it.
  Fri. 4/20/12 9:49am lane:

hey Scott, long time listener, first time caller... oh wait, wrong show... actually i've never listened, but i'm getting a Fabio Vibe here is that right?
Avatar Fri. 4/20/12 9:49am Scott:

Ha! You should call in.
Avatar Fri. 4/20/12 9:50am Scott:

Nice to see you lane!
  Fri. 4/20/12 9:52am bruceleh:

No mistaking the sound of that soprano sax!
  Fri. 4/20/12 9:53am Cecile:

OH, steve lacy. Love him. Some of the happiest musical moments of my life - seeing him live 3 times.
  Fri. 4/20/12 9:54am Cecile:

Cheri, that's like the shelf in our bathroom at work. Three days ago I thought, "we could use a shelf in the women's bathroom to put stuff on we can't use hook for." Two days later...ta-da!

Now I'm thinking about a million dollars.
  Fri. 4/20/12 9:56am Cheri Pi:

Weird Cecile! I love the uncanniness of coincidences. I'm thinking of falafel for lunch- easy to please.
  Fri. 4/20/12 9:58am Cecile:

I'm thinking of banh mi.
  Fri. 4/20/12 9:59am bruceleh:

Gotta check that out, but how can anything top 'School Days' or 'Songs' or 'Futurites' ?
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:00am Cecile:

I saw Steve Lacy on his very last tour.
He had aged a decade, even though he'd played there the year before. He sat down often - he never did. And Irene would rub his shoulders. But when the other guys in his trio would take a solo, he would just beam. I was so moved.
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:00am Cecile:

I love anything he did with Mal Waldron.
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:00am northguineahills:

I'm going to do a veggie chorizo, egg, ajecito, jalapeno, etc burrito for lunch.

I really dug that Lacy track as well.... and Nakatani is awesome to see live.
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:02am Cecile:

yay! Billy Jam live (for about 15 minutes for me.) hurray!
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:02am bruceleh:

"Live at Dreher", another ATF.
Last time I saw Steve Lacy was him playing solo in front of the Seagram's building right out on Park Avenue!
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:05am Dead Corporate Eyes:

*don't feel like workin'...*
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:05am Cecile:

Yes. LOVE Dreher.

bruceleh, how wonderful.
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:08am northguineahills:

RIP Levon Helm.
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:12am lane:

LOVING THIS!
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:12am insectfactory:

cool - love masen jules. enjoying this list - gonna stream it later.
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:14am lane:

"give the drummer some" ... (or what ever that show was called) vibe... perfect for a friday morning!
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:17am pedro silveira:

is this from the new mary halvorson album?
Avatar Fri. 4/20/12 10:18am Scott:

Yes!
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:20am pedro silveira:

awesome, love her music. i didn't know it was out already. thanks!
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:20am northguineahills:

Actually, I'm going to switch over to Doug's "Give the Drummer Some" stream in about 10 minutes, I like to juggle both Scott and Doug's streams on Friday mornings.
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:20am lane:

Doug Schulkind, that's it... great vibe!
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:20am malco:

nice
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:21am northguineahills:

I've only heard Mary Halvorson when she was playing w/ Kevin Shea.
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:21am lane:

north guinea, where is Doug now? do u mean on archive?
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:23am northguineahills:

He has a separate live stream you can find on the wfmu home page, right under Scott.

It's hard to choose, since both have amazing curatorial skills.
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:25am lane:

cool, i'm really so lucky to be in south park slope where i get crystal clear tower signal...
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:25am pedro silveira:

i've listened mostly to her records as a leader, saturn sings and dragon's head. i really like both, i think they have a distinctive sound which brings together much of free jazz/creative music/whatsoever with a contempoary feel. i'll look for something of her with kevin shea. she has one record out on clean feed with tom rainey and ingrid laubrock which is also worth noting... omg, i really sounded like a "middle aged middle class whitey newspaper jazz critic" right now.
Avatar Fri. 4/20/12 10:27am Scott:

HA. It's true Pedro. She's the best. I'm also a HUGE fan of her duo/trio w/ Weasel Walter/Peter Evans.
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:28am pedro silveira:

yeah. i forgot that one. by the way, those shangaan records by honest john are also really good.
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:29am northguineahills:

I think her duo w/ Kevin Shea was called People, and they had mostly vinyl and 7" releases. (maybe a cdr as well)
Avatar Fri. 4/20/12 10:30am Scott:

Yeah People is the "rock" band.
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:31am northguineahills:

Villalobos y Loderbauer work really well together. Their ECM record frickin' fantastic!
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:37am Eric:

dope!
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:37am Dead Corporate Eyes:

diggin'
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:38am lane:

so good!
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:38am Cheri Pi:

Cecile-I'm gonna send you something in about 30... prepare thyself-and we'll do final edits.
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:43am Cecile:

awesome
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:46am Cecile:

I have never heard anything bad from a DJ sampler. And they are all so different.
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:55am TGIF:

I had to google Tomuntonttu - so different.
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:58am allan:

friday friday friday friday friday friday!
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:07am northguineahills:

If I remember correctly, tomuntonttu is a dust gnome in Finnish, or something like that.
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:07am Dead Corporate Eyes:

Rafael Toral's stuff is always so cool!
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:08am pedro silveira:

i'm not the biggest fan of rafael toral's space elements series, but this live recording with davu seru is actually quite mindblowing.
Avatar Fri. 4/20/12 11:10am Scott:

Yeah I agree, I think RT on gadgets plus a drummer is my favorite kind of setup.
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:10am r2d2:

THIS IS BAAAAAAD -.......
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:10am allan:

i wishd i coulda seen this in my own town
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:11am northguineahills:

I preferred Toral's guitar playing, but he is a really awesome person to sit down and have a pint w/. I believe that was when he had his body sensor electronics at Tonic....
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:14am Cecile:

Damn, when was this?
I miss when Davu and others had an ongoing improv series in Mpls. We saw some great people that way.
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:19am Cecile:

Oh, they are having shows all over the place. Just all scattered around. Der. I have to get out more.
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:19am Cecile:

Dah-Voo
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:20am allan:

i had no idea bout any of this. davu seru is playing every few days right down the street. maybe it would be worth hanging around st paul at night
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:22am Cecile:

that and the Amsterdam and Black Dog.
I know what you mean, allan!
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:25am lane:

this vibe reminds me more of John Allen than Fabio or Doug S. I like it a little more too. u get those danceable tracks in there sometimes to cut the obscuantist stuff, with a touch of world beat... i'm no musician, just a wank fuck painter so don't take me too seriously... great show!
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:26am allan:

man oh man i really need to get out more
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:29am Dead Corporate Eyes:

live while you can, that's my credo--get out and do and see these things. they may never happen again.
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:33am Cecile:

clean feed has some great releases, and a sale! Nice to know Dennis Gonzalez has someone issuing his records more frequently.
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:35am allan:

there's really just too much good music. un embrrass de choix. i guess that's better than the opposite.
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:40am Lydia Lunch:

suuuper into your show today Scott McDowell
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:41am Dead Corporate Eyes:

it's amazing that so much stuff is going on, even in a ham-and-egger town like Cleveland! this week honestly I could've seen something cool every single night...as it was I saw Corsano/Dilloway duo in a chapel in Oberlin on Sunday, and White Hills on Tuesday...
Avatar Fri. 4/20/12 11:41am Scott:

Super, Lydia!
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:44am Cecile:

cool, DCE. I like the fact people are just putting on shows, anywhere.
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:45am Cheri Pi:

You got your banh mi Cecile!
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:45am Dead Corporate Eyes:

Oberlin is killing it lately--they brought Tim Hecker to that same chapel the week before. Reverb...!
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:49am Cheri Pi:

3-lobed says about this "a unique and masterful album, one that sees the duo building and expanding upon the already telepathic chemistry"
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:50am Dead Corporate Eyes:

telepathic chemistry is pretty sweet, ya gotta admit.
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:50am allan:

On the subject of lunch:

My boss once asked me
-you know what’s for lunch today?
-what, tim?
-one two three four five!

And the chairlift swept him into the air (I was working at a ski area at the time)
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:51am Mike East:

The title of this song is making me hungry. Time to order lunch/late breakfast (definitely not brunch, though).
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:53am Dead Corporate Eyes:

I got stuffed grape leaves (vege) rolled in a pita from the Lebanese place downstairs. Damn it's good!
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:54am allan:

yeah some of that young bahn mi sounds soooogoood
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:55am Cecile:

ohhhh. I miss those ones in A2 at their Le Shish. Sooo good.
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:55am Parq:

Ah, been wondering if we'd hear any Levon today.
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:56am Cheri Pi:

That sounds good DCE- I can get a grapeleaf sammich if I put on my walking shoes-which I should do anyways...
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:57am allan:

for lunch today: a walk down the stairs to raspberry island
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:58am Cecile:

where is that, allan?
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:58am KevinfromBayRidge:

"Bout time!
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:59am Brian in UK:

Richard, Rick & Levon all harmonising again.
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:59am allan:

oh its just that park under the bridge over to harriet island. walking weather
