Howdy! Great to hear some early ECM.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 9:04am ben abs:

Hi JW, Great start!
  Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 9:05am Jonathan:

Hey everyone! Glad you're here.

Hi DJ J.W. I love ECM rekkids, don't care who doesn't.

Whale done, Jonathan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 9:12am northguineahills:

For you ECM fans, Ricardo Villalobos was granted access to their vaults and did an amazing remix album. Sort of like Eno hits Spiritual/Euro jazz ambience. I recommend it....
  Fri. 7/6/18 9:12am Kudubundu:

ECM anytime please. Listening in the UK. Hot enough for this kind of music!
  Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 9:14am Jonathan:

Gotta check out that Villalobos mix, sounds incredible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 9:15am northguineahills:

Oh, man, Julius Hemphill!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 9:16am Ken From Hyde Park:

Good morning, Jonathan. Wake up, Little Susie, wherever you are.

Good Morning Fellow Freeformists!

Are you related to G. Williger?

Regardless, great start to the show.

We're sixth cousins, nine times removed!
  Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 9:30am Jonathan:

Since you all said you were all good with ECM here's a classic for you
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 9:33am karlward:

Is ECM controversial? Why?
  Fri. 7/6/18 9:35am Kudubundu:

Thank you. Bliss. One of my all time favourites.

hi jonathan, good to hear you today; thought this smoothish jazz would be JA for sure :P

hi all
  Fri. 7/6/18 9:37am miketp:

fine sounds for a short drive
  Fri. 7/6/18 9:38am James Douglas:

awesome
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 9:38am TDK60:

I have E. Weber's "Yellow Fields" album from '75 -wonderful. // Karlward: Not sure; some jazzbos only like jazz from 1917 to about 1960 then dislike all the stuff from free jazz to more spiritual stuff. Then they pick up again with Marsalis round '85. Some just don't like the association with '60s/'70s longhairs or what they call new agey feel. May be more to it, don't know...
Avatar    Fri. 7/6/18 9:39am Lixiviated Life:

beatnic bongo style-arooni.
i can dig it
the most-arooni.
  Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 9:41am Jonathan:

Yeah, I think some purists think the ECM sound, at least post-73, is cheese-tastic, but I love it. Bring on the gated reverb, I say!!
Avatar    Fri. 7/6/18 9:44am Lixiviated Life:

Always a place in my heart for Return To Forever, Weather Report, John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 9:46am TDK60:

Cheese is in the taste-buds of the cheese taster. Many ECM albums have actually helped me stretch out mentally -free therapy! well, for the price of an LP. (I love older jazz too -Count Basie.) But I did come of age in the '60s-'70s, so..
Avatar Fri. 7/6/18 9:49am Diezel Tea:

This GoM is fantastic stuff.

was that a request ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 9:50am ben abs:

hahaha
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 9:50am TDK60:

chatty today: Also, longtime English folkie Robin Williamson has recently done some fine jazzy-folk albums via ECM.
  Fri. 7/6/18 9:52am Kudubundu:

Is Pat Metheny too "cheesetastic" to consider?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 9:53am northguineahills:

I love Fire!: Gospel of Mars , new to me!

what they all said, and will say
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:00am Krys O.:

Pat Metheny's Zero Tolerance for Silence was quite amazing, IMO.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:01am northguineahills:

Pat Metheny sometimes gets my lactose intolerance in a knot, but he's done some top stuff as well, not just realizing Steve Reich's "Electric Counterpoint".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:02am TDK60:

A fave fusion-y album is John Abercrombie's "Timeless" - ECM.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:03am northguineahills:

@TDK60: I also have the Ebenhard Weber "Yellow Fields" Album on vinyl, not bad. Until I was mayb 28, I only liked jazz from 1962 onwards, it took me awhile to appreciate earlier more "trad jazz".
  Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:05am Jonathan:

I think like most folks I'm very selective with the Metheny. Abercrombie's "Timeless" is an incredible record, definitely like top 5 "fusion" records for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:05am TDK60:

Hola NGH: Yes, that E.W. album, to me, is similar to stuff later Soft Machine was doing then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:06am northguineahills:

Crap, gotta to get to work and watch the WC!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:07am Guido from Cologne:

Great stuff!
Loved the jazz section as i love the guitar primitivism!
:-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:07am melinda:

Nice tunes
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:07am northguineahills:

(will be listening to Doug Schulkind at work, who's selections are nearly identical to yours, Jonathan).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:09am ɛɨk:

@NGH, it's Hinky Dinky today, no Doug. So a much bigger contrast than it would be otherwise, and personally I much prefer JW right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:09am melinda:

Don't hear dulcimer often enough, this is making me happy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:10am \ⓔⓘⓚ/:

Agreed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:13am WillCrete:

I'll third that feeling on the dulcimer. Great playing there on that last tune. Indeed- digging this whole set: from Bill Mackay's guitar playing into this veena solo on now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:13am Crudbringer:

I can't dance to this, which is perfect, because I'm just terrible at dancing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:17am northguineahills:

Thanks for the update, ike: UM, may make me cringe on occasion, but also delivers surprises... gotta go (I don't want to be at work until 10pm again..,)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:22am TDK60:

NGH: Who's playing World Cup today?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:24am northguineahills:

@TDK: Brazil-Belgium and France-Uruguay.
  Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:25am Jonathan:

I haven't been following the games at all - worth starting now?
  Fri. 7/6/18 10:29am Frozen Kid:

great show!
  Fri. 7/6/18 10:31am Kudubundu:

Hey, I was just about to say " great show" too. Loving this ....
Avatar Fri. 7/6/18 10:33am mikeB:

first time listener of your show jonathan....fantastic! Do you have a regular show on FMU?
  Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:36am Jonathan:

Thanks for the very kind words, everyone! No regular show, just filling in at this point. But I'll be back on the air in a few weeks, I'll give everyone the info before the end of the slot!
Avatar Fri. 7/6/18 10:38am mikeB:

thanks, I'll be looking forward to more of this
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:49am TDK60:

Fine show Jonathan, hope you have many more fill-ins.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:53am TDK60:

Say it Prince! Those crazy baldheads' prohibition has lasted way too long.
  Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:55am Jonathan:

Yeah that's the political statement of the day. Well, besides the genre/tradition hopping nature of the whole show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:55am northguineahills:

huh, I'm a baldy, it'd take a months to grow my hair long enough and then fashion them into dreads, and then I'd just be a poseur.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 10:57am TDK60:

NGH- it refers to a mental state, name of a Bob Marley tune -off Rastaman Vibration album '76.. There are short hair & bald rastas, not that I'm rasta nor dreadlocked.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 11:06am northguineahills:

I know TDK60, just ripping on the irie vibes.... ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 11:10am TDK60:

NGH: heh-hee / US alcohol prohibition went from 1920 to '33. Pot prohibition has lasted from 1937 til now! with some openings here and there. I've been waiting 50 years! End the "Drug War" = Peace in Mexico, etc!

Really enjoying this show - thanks much Jonathan!
Avatar    Fri. 7/6/18 11:19am Chris from DC:

Beautiful seuge into Rafael Toral there.
  Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 11:22am Jonathan:

Chris, if you liked that, that kind of mixing is what I do when I typically host a nighttime show. Much more drone/stasis/noise/abstract stuff all rolling together.
  Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 11:23am Jonathan:

And thank you Mick!
Avatar    Fri. 7/6/18 11:26am Chris from DC:

Duly noted.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 11:27am joe mulligan:

ambient drone stuff is usually what I like the most, but I'm usually asleep when DJs play that sort of ilk. good to hear it during waking hours Jonathan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 11:28am northguineahills:

Rafael Toral, someone who I volunteered to stay on my couch once and got free vinyl in return! (good trade off!)
Avatar    Fri. 7/6/18 11:29am Chris from DC:

Huge fan of his ambient records. I still play Wavefield regularly.
  Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 11:32am Jonathan:

I had honestly not heard these ambient records before, more familiar with his more recent experimental/improv work, but have listened to one of them once a day for the past two weeks. Incredible stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 11:35am northguineahills:

Ben Frost is the only other musician of note I remember that I wasn't already friends w/ that stayed at my pad (also got free music).

This set was stunning, especially for a rainy Maine morning at the lake.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/6/18 11:52am northguineahills:

@joe mulligan: That was the show where a mutual friend asked if he could stay at my place (I had a large pad for Brooklyn back then). He helped produce and musically contribute to the last few Bjork albums (he was living in Iceland at the time).
