Creepy sad: The same day Gilli's news broke, I got delivery of the last LP with Daevid (i see you) -- had it ordered for a while. Synchronicity..?

I'm sorry about Fohat our marmoset, he got out last night and dug some pretty big holes in your space.

this is great!

That was cool.
  Thu. 8/25/16 4:11pm Brendan:

Damn. I knew it. Hearing any artist more than once in a non- live set does not bode well. RIP.

Seems like I was just reading last week about efforts to help support Gilli's living expenses in her care facility...

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/25/16 4:41pm Polyus:

The first time I heard Fabio play a cut from this Cabaret Voltaire record a few years ago, I said "I gotta get that!" Sure enough, I was at a big record sale that following weekend, and there it was. I haven't seen a copy since, so it was one of those weird serendipitous moments.
Avatar Thu. 8/25/16 4:42pm geezerette:

How can something be so unsettleing and soothing at once?

ah Bad Orb... wish Miss Albury still made woozy wonk, but now she is all tied up in big city hairdressing.

Yay Midnight Cowboy
  Thu. 8/25/16 5:02pm P-90:

Toots was a GIANT man, totally under-appreciated for his many, many great recordings, one of those cats who everyone's heard play, very few know his name. Did a lot of big-time sessions for popular records and movies, but has uber-serious cred among Jazz musicians, etc
Avatar    Thu. 8/25/16 5:04pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

"untied kingdom," mebbe?

Rudy Van Gelder passed away today also, jazz engineer

Greetings, voodoo partiers.
  Thu. 8/25/16 5:13pm Dean:

Van Gelder! That is one hell of a loss to the artistic legacy, Toots and Rudy..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/25/16 5:22pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Regarded as the most important recording engineer of jazz by some observers'...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/25/16 5:23pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...doesn't seem we'll hear a bad word about Toots...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/25/16 5:23pm Polyus:

Oh no, I missed BPW's 15 minutes of fame!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/25/16 5:25pm melinda:

I think Toots played on the Sesame Street theme too.
Avatar Thu. 8/25/16 5:27pm TDK60:

Van Gelder recorded tons of great jazzers. Just across the bridge from NYC.

Oh melinda - apparently so. That seals it. Beloved.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/25/16 5:30pm bobdoesthings:

whats this bed music?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/25/16 5:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Toots probably represented the possibility of Virtuosity on an instrument regarded as Unworthy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/25/16 5:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...& Joyfully - on an instrument perhaps most associated w/ Blues...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/25/16 5:32pm bobdoesthings:

my exgf wanted to try some 'german stuff' ... i was never the same after that
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/25/16 5:33pm melinda:

I didn't know about the Midnight Cowboy theme until just now, but I love that style of harmonica playing and it's nice to attach the name to it. Really evocative of a place and time.

I like the Jelinek too...seems Rock-like to me and that's fine.

Ah, Harmonia. Why weren't these guys more known here, back then?
  Thu. 8/25/16 5:48pm P-90:

Guten tag, Herr Clay!
Avatar Thu. 8/25/16 5:49pm YETI BOB:

nice show Fabio. Jan Jelenik seems pretty much like a straight-up tribute to Harmonia. and gute nachmittag to Clay!
  Thu. 8/25/16 5:49pm Dean:

Among prog/Krautrock fans at the time, they were known.

Yeas, Bettie unfortunately is gone. And she was always a devout Christian, and it is a misconception that she ever "disavowed" her pin-up work. She stopped doing it, but she never renounced it, she was proud of it and always said it was nothing to be ashamed of.
  Thu. 8/25/16 6:00pm P-90:

grazie, Fabio!
