I'll have what that gif is having. Hi Kurt, fellow Minis.
  Tue. 11/15/16 3:55pm Dean:

Haven't listened to this in ages. Kinda prefer the Golijov work with Krakauer and Kronos Quartet, "The Dreams And Prayers Of Isaac The Blind."
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 3:57pm Kurt Gottschalk:

yes, that's a nice one as well for sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/15/16 4:01pm doctorjazz:

Enjoying this Ayre.
  Tue. 11/15/16 4:06pm Dean:

I'm reminded of Toyohiko Satoh's compositions as performed by his Alba Musica Kyo on Channel Classics. Satoh and the ensemble ordinarily performed genuine early music. The same informs Satoh's own work.
  Tue. 11/15/16 4:09pm Dean:

Definitely have to revisit this Ayre.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 4:11pm Kurt Gottschalk:

you're revisiting it now!
  Tue. 11/15/16 4:13pm Dean:

Meant to say, "rerevisit." Or "rerevisitvisit."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/15/16 4:14pm doctorjazz:

This is a corner of the music world I'm not familiar with (not that there aren't others...), very cool stuff.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 4:14pm Kurt Gottschalk:

it's a rare visitation.
  Tue. 11/15/16 4:18pm Dean:

Well, medium rare.

Did Leonard Cohen have the same backup singers throughout his career? Such a distinctive style to their vocals.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 4:47pm Kurt Gottschalk:

good question, yeah, i dunno.

ha! there you are, veep.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/15/16 4:49pm Rich in Washington:

What was weird for me is that I had stuffed The Future into my crate Tuesday evening, after that disastrous election, feeling that a couple of songs seemed appropriate and thought I'd play them. Just about an hour before I left my house for my show, read the news that he had passed away.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 4:49pm V Priceless:

hey KG! You musta mist me @ 3:22!
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 4:50pm Kurt Gottschalk:

oh, right! didn't miss you just misremembered you.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 4:52pm V Priceless:

The Misremembered = band name of the week!

Sorry to hear that news about Mose Allison. Just read the NYT obit. Damn, the guy logged some miles.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 5:17pm V Priceless:

refreshing, that GoF
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 5:27pm geezerette:

Sounds like the inside of my head since last Tuesday.
Thanks so much. :)

Love this Yoko & John!
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 5:33pm Kurt Gottschalk:

yoko brought out an aspect of his guitar playing we never would have heard otherwise.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 5:34pm geezerette:

ngh, it's so romantic.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 5:35pm Kurt Gottschalk:

ha, yes, it is.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 5:37pm Parq:

Dean -- fuck, is that why his picture turned up in my Instagram feed? Shee-it, are we ever going to wake up and find out that 2106 is a sustained nightmare?
  Tue. 11/15/16 5:40pm Dean:

Kurt announced it at the break, too. At least Allison lived a full, evidently relatively placid life. But still, he's an icon.

Tchicai and John Stevens here. Amazing.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 5:41pm Kurt Gottschalk:

john tchicai died in 2012
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 5:41pm Kurt Gottschalk:

sorry to say

Kurt, such perfect choices for facing forward, whole playlist.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 5:53pm Kurt Gottschalk:

thanks, geez. always glad to see you.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 6:00pm Parq:

Oh, by the way, the papers are finally starting to post obits for Billy Miller. Stuff on the Times and Billboard today, and smaller pieces on Yahoo News and Brooklyn Vegan.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 6:02pm Parq:

And, I never knew that local heroine Amy Allison was Mose's daughter. Condolences to her, too.

Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 6:32pm northguineahills:

this sounds rather contemporary for 2006, then again, my brain might have been in stasis for the last 10 years anyways.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 6:36pm Kurt Gottschalk:

actually it WAS contemporary in 2006!
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 6:36pm Kurt Gottschalk:

icebergs don't update.

I mean, it sounds like it was today....

yes, of course. i'm just playing.
  Tue. 11/15/16 6:40pm moontana:

Who is Eno)))?
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 6:42pm Kurt Gottschalk:

billed as "stephen o'rly and brian elmo" - not sure if it's actually o'malley or not.
  Tue. 11/15/16 6:43pm V Priceless:

I wonder if the GOP will admit 'before and after science' is their fave Eno album title? : )

Ha! "Horselover Fats" is Philip Dick, translated. (Dick used that in (I think) Valis.)
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 6:53pm Kurt Gottschalk:

interesting. translated how?
  Tue. 11/15/16 6:54pm V Priceless:

thanks for a swell show, Kurt!

Simply. "Horselover" is the name "philip". etc

i like knowing where bands names come from!
  Tue. 11/15/16 6:58pm moontana:

Thanks I knew I'd heard the name before. Philip K. Flow My Tears the Policeman Said. Dick should have won a Nobel.

Thanks Kurt!

I think Dick used the name for a character in Valis. (I think.)
