Up until he hired George Handy, Boyd Raeburn and his band were a unremarkable society music orchestra. These tone poems were never released commercially. (Gee, I wonder why?!) They were recorded to V-Disc and sent overseas to U.S. servicemen during WWII.

Next up, the Stan Kenton band. Kenton himself was no great innovator, except that he hired brilliant and visionary music directors. The next track, "Trajectories," was written by Franklyn Marks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/22/19 10:20am Doug Schulkind:

And of course, Kenton hired virtuoso instrumentalists who could pull off the crazy scores put in front of them.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/22/19 10:57am Doug Schulkind:

From Wikipedia:

"Tristano's 1953 recording "Descent into the Maelstrom" was another innovation. It was a musical portrayal of Edgar Allan Poe's story of the same title, and was an improvised solo piano piece that used multitracking and had no preconceived harmonic structure, being based instead on the development of motifs. Its atonality anticipated the much later work of pianists such as Cecil Taylor and Borah Bergman."
Avatar Fri. 2/22/19 10:59am Martinibomb:

Oh that's right he was one of the first people to use multitrack

This Gunther Schuller piece was conducted by one of the great genius modernist innovators, George Russell. It is a pathetic embarrassment that I have not included Russell in this mix. Honestly, I feel Russell operated at a level ABOVE all this. More pioneering and less "dabbling in avant gardism" that some of what I have played today could be characterized as.

Welcome aboard, exceedingly handsome northguineahills!

And, you too, esteemed colleague (and a real looker) David D!

@Jeff Golick
Jesus H. Christ! I was thinking Baden-Baden as I typed Baader. Get out of my head!

@LG, yeah it's a bit of a slog, but I appreciate Cecil's fiery approach, in the face of what I imagine was a non-appreciative audience.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/22/19 11:40am Jeff Golick:

Or maybe not fiery so much as strongly, level-headedly combative?

Baader-Meinhof Group was good until they got a contract with EMI. Then they sold out.

Because I yakked so much today, my final 21-minute soul set is gonna have to get sliced and diced.

@Listener Gregory
I love you.
  Fri. 2/22/19 11:41am Listener Gregory:

@Jeff, there doesn't seem to be a real desire to communicate. I would just go back to listen to the piano.

Wish I could identify the players in this group.

Along with George Russell, another gaping absence that should have been filled in this show is the work of the masterful composer Carman Moore.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/22/19 11:44am Doug Schulkind:

I think it's the quadruple espresso, rw.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/22/19 11:44am Jeff Golick:

@LG, yeah, I agree. Though as a document of a certain time/place/approach, I find it fascinating.

Had to go meet a guy, and have, like, normal face-to-face social check-in time, with a human! ...missed the whole show except these few bars. Damn face-to face human expectations!
