"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

we are but slaves to the music, andrew. happily so, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/21/16 6:26am AndrewC.:

How much cross over was there between the South African London jazzers and the euro free improvisors? I've got zero google hits for "the king of weasel is called easel"

Very happily yes!

Very happy to be hearing you on 91.1!
Avatar Wed. 12/21/16 6:33am John Allen:

not so much, the south african players migrated to the UK scene/ this Pukwana set with bennink /misha is from a bbit after that

Nothing like waking up to the Everley Brothers filtered through a datura buzz. Wonderfully free-form. Good morning, John, and Allenoids, all.

Avatar    Wed. 12/21/16 7:50am PKNY:

Good morning, John and all! This version of "Lush Life" is so necessary right now, thanks for bringing it to my attention!
Avatar    Wed. 12/21/16 7:51am PKNY:

@John - actually did a Google search on the Jeff Parker, and found a Pitchfork article that explicitly mentions the hum throughout "Lush Life" --> pitchfork.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/21/16 7:53am northguineahills:

Haven't heard anything from Jeff Parker since his Tortoise days....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/21/16 7:53am doctorjazz:

All that shimmer, sounds a bit like listening to Duke underwater...
