Wow, some quote. All because she doesn't like jazz, I guess.

Good afternoon, fellow rumprollers.

Oh man, I know this story! One of my favorite actually-true urban legends.

I got see Bent Knee last summer. So good.

Any album titled the Rumproller gets my vote.

Jazz should motion to you from an alley, and if you go to see what it wants it kicks you in the nuts and steals your wallet.
Avatar Wed. 4/17/19 3:33pm Hoboken Jack:

What up, dog? No idea why I just typed that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 3:34pm Irwin:

A reaction to meds?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 3:39pm The Oscar:

I got into an Uber once and the driver put in a Dave Koz CD, then immediately spent the entire ride talking about how wonderful Dave Koz is, and how Dave Koz makes the most beautiful music, and how he's never had a single passenger who didn't like him. The funniest part was that, in the moments between when I got in and when he started the CD, he was absolutely listening to "The Real Slim Shady."
  Wed. 4/17/19 3:41pm andrewb:

weren't Moondog and Philip Glass roommates at some point?
Avatar Wed. 4/17/19 3:41pm Hoboken Jack:

Smooth jazz, soft rock, light classical, 80s country -- I guess there's a lame subset of everything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 3:41pm Irwin:

Yes. Robert Scotto chronicles their odd pairing in his Moondog bio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 3:47pm AnAnonymousParty:

Am I wrong to think when you hear some music that is labelled something-jazz it really isn't jazz at all. Something for sure, dunno what, maybe they too lazy to come up with a real description and just lumped it as jazz, because who knows what jazz is anyway?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 3:56pm Irwin:

The term "jazz" is a journalistic and marketing convenience. That's all. However you want to label it, it's simply art.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:00pm AnAnonymousParty:

Like pornography. OK, looks like I'm going home now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:01pm Phillippe Bastille:

Radio Caprice has 35 different jazz streams, each with its own focus.
  Wed. 4/17/19 4:03pm berbo:

"Porno jazz" - making obscene noises with brass instruments that only weakly mimic music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:05pm Irwin:

I've always defined "free jazz" as a group of instrumentalists all soloing at the same time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:09pm Phillippe Bastille:

Free jazz is also that guy blowing on the sax by the subway entrance when you don't have any spare money
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:11pm Carmichael:

Heya Irwin and jazz lovers. Thomas Marriott sure gets a lot of FMU airplay. Deservedly so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:12pm Irwin:

Carm - Until recently he got none!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:12pm Irwin:

I overlooked this guy. He's terrific.
Avatar Wed. 4/17/19 4:15pm Martinibomb:

Hiya Irwin. Usually doing my show in Sheenas Jungle room at the same time as yours but technical difficulties so I get to tune into yours today! Yay
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:16pm Irwin:

How did you get past the martinibomb-sniffing dogs?
Avatar Wed. 4/17/19 4:16pm Martinibomb:

Animals like me for some reason :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:19pm Carmichael:

I initially read the playlist as Cthulhu Waiting for Tabasco.
Avatar Wed. 4/17/19 4:20pm Fredericks:

Irwin, your definition of Free-Jazz sounds rather similar to Ornette Coleman's description of Harmolodics.
  Wed. 4/17/19 4:20pm ?:

What's the song playing behind you as you talk?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:21pm Carmichael:

Oh yeah, never will tire of Scott.
  Wed. 4/17/19 4:21pm spodiodi:

NEXT! love this one
Avatar Wed. 4/17/19 4:21pm Martinibomb:

Freejazz is making it up as you go along they have no idea what the next part of the progression or melody will be. That's my definition.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:21pm Irwin:

? = That was "Mi Cumbia" by Ramon Ropain
  Wed. 4/17/19 4:23pm KFJC-teabag:

Wait, this is a cover of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, right? Or was their vestion of "Next" a cover?
  Wed. 4/17/19 4:24pm ?:

Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:26pm Irwin:

Next was written by Jacques Brel, who died in 1967. Walker recorded his around 1968, Harvey around 1974.
Avatar Wed. 4/17/19 4:36pm Martinibomb:

Checkin the Jacques Brel version right now.. which I don't hink I've heard
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:37pm Irwin:

It's probably in Quebecois!
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:38pm Jan-Willem:

Or in flemish :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:39pm Irwin:

Maybe Urdu?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:40pm chris:

it'd be a Pashtun in any language.
Avatar Wed. 4/17/19 4:41pm Fredericks:

I thought this Happy Apple was Ornette.
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:42pm Jan-Willem:

Polynesian maybe?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:45pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I contend the music in the cantina in the first Star Wars movie was the most far out jazz ever.
  Wed. 4/17/19 4:47pm flashbazbo:

I measure my angst down to the angstrom.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:49pm Phillippe Bastille:

Oooh, this Craig Finn is definitely angst lowering! I'm down to a 93!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:52pm Tommy in Neversink:

I was guessing the was The Hold Steady
Avatar Wed. 4/17/19 4:52pm Z-pulpa:

angst level is at a 6.5 ..... too much sugar... not enough sleep
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:52pm Tommy in Neversink:

..the Craig Finn song
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:52pm Irwin:

THS lead singer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:53pm Tommy in Neversink:

OH ....I was right and wrong
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:53pm Tommy in Neversink:

LOVE the show today
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:54pm Irwin:

He's got a few solos out. Think he's pretty terrific. Saw THS live once and they were the LOUDEST fucking band. But then, I never saw Deep Purple live.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:54pm Phillippe Bastille:

Dunno why I always confuse The Hold Steady with The Gaslight Anthem.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:54pm Irwin:

Stand by to be disappointed, Tommy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:56pm Tommy in Neversink:

Well even if it sucks from this point 2/3rds have been great so you can't fall below 66%
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:56pm Little Danny:

Huh. Whoa. This Donny Osmond is... good?!
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:56pm Jan-Willem:

Ha, Tommy, now the genius is out of the bottle.. ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:56pm chris:

oh wow. mr. purple socks himself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:57pm Phillippe Bastille:

Shit, I just clicky starred an Osmond song... Pay attention, Phillippe!
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:57pm Jan-Willem:

at least its the Charles and Eddy
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:57pm Irwin:

Cringey sax solo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:58pm Spankyflop:

I never saw THS or Deep Purple, but my ears are still ringing from a Dinosaur Jr. show in 1991.
  Wed. 4/17/19 4:59pm berbo:

Donny's dancing in Weird Al's "White and Nerdy" video is the best thing he's ever done.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 4:59pm Little Danny:

Broadcast's HaHa Sound tour were the best loud shows ever
  Wed. 4/17/19 4:59pm Fashion Tashjian:

The one of the many commonalities making it easy to confuse TGS and THS is that they both play songs Springsteen meant to play but never recorded.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 5:00pm rsj:

man sax is in the air at WFMU these days
  Wed. 4/17/19 5:01pm Fashion Tashjian:

Just as I got here you play Dark Blue. Bless you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 5:01pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Fashion gotta be it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 5:01pm Kat in Chicago:

sax and broadcasting?
Avatar Wed. 4/17/19 5:06pm Roberto:

He may have dodged a bullet -- Brigitte didn't age well.
Avatar Wed. 4/17/19 5:08pm Roberto:

I think she may have also said something about how Nazis weren't that bad. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 5:10pm Irwin:

Sounds like something misquoted out of context. Don't know what she actually said, tho.
Avatar Wed. 4/17/19 5:10pm Roberto:

Firin' up the ol' Google machine...
Avatar Wed. 4/17/19 5:12pm Roberto:

Well the closest I could find is she was once married to the son of a Nazi Party member. My bad. Carry on.

Phil Bastille: i always confuse Hold Steady with OK Go.
  Wed. 4/17/19 5:39pm Laura L:

Great Gilberto Gil tune--never heard it before today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 5:39pm Irwin:

I always confuse OK Go with Oh OK. The former has better videos, tho.
  Wed. 4/17/19 5:41pm Mike tp:

Gilberto Gil. don't know much if not any of his catalog but this mushroom cut is tasty.
  Wed. 4/17/19 5:44pm Dean:

That Gil tune had a whiff of early King Crimson about it. Really.
  Wed. 4/17/19 5:45pm Mike tp:

thanks Irwin for choosing the good stuff.......really mean it no bullshit
Avatar Wed. 4/17/19 5:46pm flashbazbo:

I would definitely confuse FUN. and Taxpayer, if their names weren't so different.
Avatar Wed. 4/17/19 5:46pm flashbazbo:

Judee Sill means the world to me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 5:47pm Irwin:

Find the YT vid of Sill singing this song live on some UK TV show before she died young.
Avatar Wed. 4/17/19 5:49pm flashbazbo:

Some of her best stuff was not on the Asylum LPs too. i think it's had a release this century.
  Wed. 4/17/19 5:51pm Kudubundu:

Thank you for the beautiful Judee Sill track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 5:54pm Irwin:

Great, brief drum fill near the end of this HP song. Pay heed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/17/19 5:54pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Irwin wasn't one of the REM guy's sister in Oh Okay?

@flashbazbo honest mistake
