What are the Dead? Jazz prepared the way for Psychedelic Rawk & Gittar Rawk 'cetera in terms of Improvisation. Coltrane to bYRdS directly, f'rinstance. Summa them fellas in Cream knew a little about Jazz - fer 'nother instance...Art School in England - soon as the Draft ended, so on...It characterized Psychedelia - & SanFrancisco particularly that people of different backgrounds tried each other out - Jerry was Bluegrass, Phil Lesh 'Academic' - so forth...Jimi's drummer Mitch Mitchell brought the Jazz to the revolution in Rawk Drumming that Keith Moon had only just made (Ginger Baker inbetween actually) - whilst Jimi was deeply saturated in Blues, Soul & Rawk'n'Roll - & that was one happy musical compatibility - oh yes...Which isn't to say the Dead weren't humbled to be on the bill w/ Miles - they had the sense to be...

The Dead combined elements of folk, bluegrass, country-western, rock, jazz and avant-guarde. There's lots of mediocre Dead music, but when they were good they were great Same with Ella -- alot is mediocre (some is lousy) but the good stuff is great.

My last name is Adkins, and there was a Hobo Jack Adkins. He was a coal miner folk singer way back.

The Dead were a touring country rock and blues band. They lasted too long for their whole catalog to hold up. They also lasted long enough to genre bend and "defy categorization." But they are essentially Pigpen covering "Good Morning Little School Girl."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 1/11/17 4:07pm doctorjazz:

The Dead were "jazz" in the sense that free improvisation is jazz. They did indeed assimilate many genres, sometimes in the same tune. They were indeed great sometimes, awful others (took major risks, fell short sometimes as a result. Also as a result of not having great vocalists. Also as a result of heavy drug indulgence).

Experiments often fail - but to never experiment is total failure. That's how the 60s are different from now. True in Jazz w/ Free Jazz as well - but Jazz being the African-American Classical Music - the code obviously is to have some damn chops. & Improvise. - & Swing. Also.
Wynton Marsalis - who has been a Straight-Ahead blowhard & stuff - made the point that when we talk of 'Fusion' - Rawk is a branch on the Jazz Tree - historically speaking - so how can it be 'Fusion' w/ itself? I think - people fear Jazz - are intimadated by 'not understanding' it - as if it's a problem in Maths, not Art...but really if you play in a Blues-based form & get really proficient - it's 'Jazz' by default almost...Jazz is too small a word for too much, really - which Coltrane made some comments about in his time...Serious drug use was never an excuse for lack of proficiency in Jazz - & I think that's a Cultural demarcation. Like the Northern Beatles aspiring to Art, & the Middle Class Stones aspiring to Bohemia - the frankly Black & White racial situation in America - Black Artists dressing up - & White middle class kids dressing down...so on so on...I mean - I'm not a Dead Hater - but if King Crimson had played as much as the Dead - it woulda been pretty tight! - but that wasn't the point to Dead culture ( - & a Culture it was!!)

'Attics of My Life' is as great an LSD Hymn as there is - by anybody - due regards to 'Step Inside this House' by Roky & Co.
The Dead were Muricans. I concluded that 'Folk Music' is anything that - if you stumbled onto strangers on the beach around a fire w/ a guitar - what music would you all know? The Dead were/are exactly that...So - rooted in Murican Music - & transmitting same...

Face reminds me of Magritte - while the general style is like that Folk 'Primitivism' that's naturally unself-consciously Surrealism - a little like Rousseau (is that 'Fauvism?) - or Frieda Kahlo. It's great because it's not 'technical' but conveys expression & the form of the cat commendably - & a good composition overall. Yeah Ahtie - the hands are almost Picasso...Abstraction.

Irwin,there's a portrait by Goya at the Norton Simon in Pasadena, of a very squat and sour looking Duchess holding a small, bulgy eyed dog in her lap. It has her expression; either one could easily bite you if you got too close. I LOVE that painting!

Isn't the Norton Simon a gem, geezerette? I used to head out there from east side of LA County on weekends just to view a room or two. My favorite painting might be the Raphael Madonna and Child with Book.

Lately, the museum has been in the news, I gather, trying to hang on to two early Renaissance panels sold to Simon by Goebbels.

Manzarek seemed like he was nearly as pompous as Morrison - maybe more so. Morrison was just wilder, and an egomaniac.

i consider la woman a perfect album, though it's not my favorite doors album. the first one is my fave, though it's far from perfect - just because "the end" is so magnificent, and a few other songs are excellent too.

Morrison was a drop-in-any-old-time kinda guy when Joan Didion lived just off Sunset. She said he'd come in to look at himself in her mirrors, amazed that he looked so great after being a flabby schlub his whole childhood. It was speed that did it, she surmised, and she'd know. Her own drug use crops up a lot in a recent biography I read last year.
