I have to say, while being coy...because I'd rather not get into the boring details, that J.P. Barlow didn't like me very much, though I admired him greatly. Cassidy...catch colt draws the coffin cart, indeed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:06pm Funky16Corners:

I did not know that you had crossed paths!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:09pm coelacanth∅:

doesn't it suck when someone you admire doesn't like you? it naturally makes me admire them less, as their decision to dislike me always comes before they know me; not a quality i respect in a person.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:11pm Funky16Corners:

I don't think I've experienced it much - which is not to suggest that I'm lovable - but that I've probably avoided those encounters where possible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:12pm Funky16Corners:

I've gotten kind words about my work time and again, but shied away from one on one meet ups.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:13pm Uncle Michael:

Oh, he was annoyed with me for a reason. And I don't begrudge him his discomfiture with me. I stand by how my expression of certain points of view put me in his bad books. This was a long time ago and I don't flatter myself that in recent years he'd even have remembered any of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:14pm Funky16Corners:

He seemed like a very complicated guy, who may have diverge from the world of the Dead in a lot of ways
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:14pm Funky16Corners:

The "external" world of the Dead
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:15pm Uncle Michael:

He was a Republican county coordinator in Wyoming, for example.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:16pm Funky16Corners:

Didn't he run a big family ranch out there?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:17pm Uncle Michael:

Yes. A very interesting guy...prep school mate of Weir's.

Now with Trumpets!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:29pm Funky16Corners:

I was in a trumpet-y mood this week. Love me some Lee Morgan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:31pm Uncle Michael:

Lee Morgan always puts me in the mood for Irwin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:32pm Funky16Corners:

Who, Professor Corey?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:32pm Uncle Michael:

Chusid. "Yes I Can, No You Can't" is his opening theme.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:33pm Funky16Corners:

Ah!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:33pm Funky16Corners:

Man, the crew playing on this date is amazing. Just another Blue Note session at Van Gelders.
  Wed. 2/28/18 10:33pm Dean:

Not anymore, UM. He is now dedicated to playing a different LM tune each week.

(albeit an edited version)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:34pm Funky16Corners:

That's a good dedication!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:35pm Uncle Michael:

I had no idea, Dean. Very cool.
  Wed. 2/28/18 10:36pm Dean:

Keepin' us on our toes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:36pm Uncle Michael:

I see that Irwin's just a couple weeks into this new protocol.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:37pm coelacanth∅:

yeah i didn't know either. i fairly infrequently i catch Irwin's show, even less frequently catch the beginning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:42pm Funky16Corners:

There's a little Second Line roll in Ed Blackwell's playing if you listen closely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:44pm Uncle Michael:

Freddie Hubbard always puts me in the mood to hear white people yelled at.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 10:44pm Funky16Corners:

I have that somewhere. I should dig it out.

I can have an all New York band here, TOMORROW!

NO BEARDS!

I'm abandoning the keyboard. Talk you you all later...

Nite Unk!
  Wed. 2/28/18 11:28pm rw:

I used to love hearing this 10CC song on the radio when I was a kid. Not sure why I liked it. Maybe because it just sounded so weird.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 11:29pm Funky16Corners:

It's an amazing sounding record. So dense, dreamy yet kind of ominous as well
  Wed. 2/28/18 11:29pm rw:

Which is weird, because it doesn't really sound so weird. Except that it does.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 11:31pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah. It's like it's sexy and spooky at the same time. Someone made a documentary about the making of the record. I'd like to see it.
  Wed. 2/28/18 11:33pm rw:

Yes. Dense, dreamy and kind of ominous; sexy and spooky. Well put LG!
  Wed. 2/28/18 11:34pm still b/p:

I recall earliest hearings of Not in Love, in a van with a clutch of passengers. Thought it was Wings at first.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 11:34pm Funky16Corners:

I think Eric Stewart ended up in McCartney;s band
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 11:35pm Funky16Corners:

And Godley and Creme went on to make some interesting stuff on their own
  Wed. 2/28/18 11:50pm still b/p:

Good night. May your trains run on time and never be bunged up and hung up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/28/18 11:54pm coelacanth∅:

i never saw that documentary but if you haven't, at least read about "i'm not in love" in wikipedia. interesting how it came to be.
  Wed. 2/28/18 11:54pm rw:

Thanks, man! Glad I found this show. Later everyone!

Larry you might also like Katell Keineg's version of river man.
