Options Music For a Free World with Dave Sewelson: Playlist from May 18, 2019 Options

Dave Sewelson's avatar View Dave Sewelson's profile Options

Charles Mingus said jazz was a word invented to separate musicians from their money. Music for a Free World brings us together, drawing listeners to the healing power of smooth free jazz. Each week, surprise guests bring their own sides to spin and their instruments of choice to spontaneously jam.

I'm listening on a Jerry rigged set up that allows me to stream in my blocked office (iPad, tethered to my phone for internet access, then out to a clock radio), but my impression odds that these recordings are really good sounding.

Some wonderful collaborations with this cantu e tenore singing from Sardinia and "jazz." The Dutch cellist Ernst Reijseger recorded a spectacular album with Tenore e Concordu de Orosei: www.discogs.com...

I’m so glad you all liked the Sardinians. This track (Bob Casanova and company) also really gets me. I FEEL it as much as I hear it.
Avatar Sat. 5/18/19 3:03pm geezerette:

Andrea, it gives me same feeling Chet Baker does.
  Sat. 5/18/19 3:07pm Andrea:

Geezerette, I hear you. I’m so glad you like it. You can find him on YouTube a bit. And he did at least one other CD I know of, with Connie Crothers.

My donations to the station are purely selfish. I get much more than I give. It's probably the best investment I ever made (granted, not a high bar)

Yes,yes,yes, Andrea, totally agree. It's all in your music. Gifts are made for giving.

This kind of radio is THE BEST. Imaginative, expansive, intelligent, not filtered. I felt like I was learning stuff and getting new info and stimulus within about 10 seconds of tuning in.

@doctorjazz: speaking of gifts, looks like you're getting a great birthday present with this live set

Talk about "feeling the music in your body", Ben Webster always does that for me.
