Extra Drummer labor on Labor Day, but of love, one assumes.. L(D)OL.

"There are no bad kids.Or dogs." But, then, as someone said of W.C. Fields, "Any man who hates dogs and babies can't be all bad." These don't necessary conflict or cancel each other out, but a mountaintop monk is gonna have to sort out/trace the tracks of these truths.

Good evening, still w/c!

Major revamp of the family stereo today. CD changer served me well for 17 years, gave up the ghost. Remains may be viewed by appointment. On the good side, got the turntable working again. Tie ball game.

Hello, Parq, you ol' turntablist you!

Family requests that iPods do not attend?
Avatar    Mon. 9/3/18 7:48pm Doug Schulkind:

Remember that craze a few months back when the kids were all eating there iPods. Crazy kids.
Avatar Mon. 9/3/18 7:50pm still b/p:

There ain't no bad kids, but vast armies of crazy ones -- some burping songs and bubbles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/3/18 7:52pm Parq:

iPods? I must not have been listening closely. I thought they said the fad was for eating at the Iditarod.
Avatar Mon. 9/3/18 7:53pm still b/p:

Eating what, of course? ...."Mush!"

Kids these days. They have no taste!

The percussionist on this track is Big Black. He was born Danny Ray in Savannah, Georgia. He appeared in one episode of Sanford & Son.

Surprise Drummer Weston tribute, hey all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/3/18 8:09pm Parq:

Can we agree that "Jumping Flugelhorn" would be a good name for a band? Or at least a good thing to exclaim when you're astonished by something.
Avatar Mon. 9/3/18 8:12pm still b/p:

I don't think Sophia Loren will mind if we adapt the lyric she sang to Cary Grant's kids in Houseboat.
"Chresti, Chresti,
Do your very besti...."

Surprise!!
Avatar Mon. 9/3/18 8:16pm still b/p:

You don't want to think about a jumping flugelhorn when you're walking alone in the dark band room late at night.

Gilbert "G.T." Hogan is the man ravishing the drumset here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/3/18 8:26pm Parq:

You laugh, but I was in suburban Seattle last summer and had the to-me surreal experiences of seeing marijuana stores off the arterial roads, right next to the chain health-and-beauty stores and the dry cleaners. Honey, on the way home tonight, could you pick up a half gallon of milk, get your shirts and buy $50 of sens?
Avatar    Mon. 9/3/18 8:26pm Doug Schulkind:

Although the LP lists him as Hoogan.
Avatar    Mon. 9/3/18 8:28pm Doug Schulkind:

On another LP, he is listed as Wilbert, not Gilbert.

Sigh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/3/18 8:28pm Uncle Michael:

I'd like to believe that Dr. Seuss named the flugelhorn.

There is a medical marijuana dispensary located about 3 minutes from my house.

This music is being performed live at the Newport Jazz Festival, 1958.
Avatar    Mon. 9/3/18 8:35pm Doug Schulkind:

Great touches of Monk in Randy's playing here. He was an earlier admirer/proponent of Monk's approach to the keyboard.

As I was youth-sitting over the weekend, here was a wafting up from passerby into the open second floor window , the 11 year old says something like, "Man, we always have to smell pot."
Avatar    Mon. 9/3/18 8:36pm Doug Schulkind:

Youth-sitting. Still trying to digest that one.
Avatar Mon. 9/3/18 8:39pm still b/p:

Well, you could call it "babysitting,' but that might dis the yoots -- 11 and 14.

This piece was written by the great Ghanaian musician Guy Warren. It is his meditation on Romeo and Juliet.

Doug, this isn't medical weed in WA. You buy the stuff the same way you buy beer, and usually they're two or three buildings away from each other.

Quentin Jackson on trombone here. He is the owner of one of the great nicknames in jazz (or all humanity).

Goin' full Amsterdam, eh?
Avatar Mon. 9/3/18 8:45pm still b/p:

The yoot-monitoring had me confronting questions of enforcement when it came to the absent Mama's rules/limits: how much are you going to reasonably negotiate or play the iron-handed time-keeper/confiscator or shovel useless shit against the tide of obsessesion when it comes to.....the 14-year-old's phone?
Avatar    Mon. 9/3/18 8:48pm Doug Schulkind:

That there's a master's thesis in childhood development, still b/p.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/3/18 8:49pm chresti:

find out the yoot's phone number and call him/her?

Run fast and go have a tinkle, then settle in for the fabulous Sam Segal and his broadcast IF YOU LOSE YOUR HORSE. It's next, here on your 24-hour Drummer Stream.
