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.

Hey Dave. Your connection keeps dropping out and reverting back to the stream. Just double checking that your streaming computer is cabled directly to your router and not connected through wifi.

Goodly.

Yes it was, Linda Lee.

Good afternoon Dave and all. I missed Joe McPhee this week, which sucks. But I really liked the dance show I saw instead, all the more surprising for the heavily classical vocabulary
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 2:14pm Linda Lee:

thanks Doug.

Weird day yesterday: open doors day at the Paris art school. I love it but don't know anyone there anymore. That proved liberating somehow, I spent more time than ever before chatting with students. I had such a great time cleansing my brain

tremendous concept! wonderful.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 2:51pm Linda Lee:

so thankful that Cage taught us about sound as music. there's no reason to allow only some sounds as music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 2:52pm Linda Lee:

sonic experience is so much richer if life is the composition!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 2:52pm Linda Lee:

thanks so much for this, Stefan!

I'm so old I think most of them though I could turn out to be a buyer. But to their credit none blew me off when I made clear I had no money, it even cleared the way for talking about what they're doing

Just joining, hi Dave and all.

right, Linda
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 6/29/19 3:00pm fred:

@coel: Sure, but some people needed that teaching. I'm not sure which side of that divide I was, but I did need the extra jolt at least
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 6/29/19 3:03pm fred:

Yeah!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 3:04pm coelacanth∅:

absolutely,fred.
...i'm trying to remember. i know i was recording all manner of sounds on my panasonic cassette recorder by the time i was 7. i doubt i thought of it as "music" until i heard revolution 9, when i was 8-9.
Avatar Sat. 6/29/19 3:04pm spodiodi:

sounds great
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 3:04pm Linda Lee:

we have our innate capabilities & then we have a descriptive language for what we know. not that we're deaf before we can describe what we hear, but language is what helps us feel we're not locked up in our own heads.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 3:05pm Linda Lee:

so that's good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 3:07pm coelacanth∅:

...and validation that what we're doing isn't just the wasting of time by a kid with some loose screws.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 6/29/19 3:09pm fred:

@Linda Lee: I'm half deaf, and very sensitive to language as a struggle. You get it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 3:11pm Linda Lee:

yep. sure!
personally i do credit Cage with assisting in the development of a descriptive language for a natural experience of sound. that's not an individual effort anyway, but some people are really blessed with a way to communicate on that level, which, i think, is basically empathic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 3:13pm Linda Lee:

fred, i was suprised to find out that one of the 1960s' best guitarists, the lead player June Millington, is deaf in one ear. the way she talks about music is uniquely intuitive & holistic. neat stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 6/29/19 3:16pm fred:

@coel: definitely not wasting time, but the loose screws bit might still stick
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 3:18pm coelacanth∅:

haha fred i'll accept that!

Thanks for that set. You guys deserve some ice cream
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 3:19pm coelacanth∅:

nice one! first time i've heard one of Dave's guests say that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 3:20pm Linda Lee:

argh. sealed windows in summer!! hateful!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 3:27pm coelacanth∅:

i'm not positive but i think only one 1/2 of a stereo signal is coming through
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 3:33pm coelacanth∅:

it was just that recording.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 3:41pm Linda Lee:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 3:43pm Linda Lee:

gorgeous!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 6/29/19 3:53pm fred:

I was totally rude earlier to Granny Spicy Tuna, and wish to apologize for my misbehavior. If anyone can convey my apology, I'd be grateful. No need to make a production out of it: I was wrong, I apologize.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 3:59pm Linda Lee:

looks like they have an email contact on file, fred. that might be a good way..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 6/29/19 4:04pm fred:

I thought that would be intrusive, but I'll go with your insight: can't get worse than now
Avatar 🎃 Sat. 6/29/19 4:09pm Dave Sewelson:

Stefan has left the building
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 6/29/19 4:13pm fred:

But he's still alive?!

Yes....he had to go see the new baby
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 4:24pm Linda Lee:

fred, i think Granny will appreciate the effort.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 6/29/19 4:25pm chresti:

Sounds good, still here, kind of..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/29/19 4:25pm Linda Lee:

it's not direct email anyway. Granny will just be notified that you'd like to get in touch & take it from there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 6/29/19 4:31pm fred:

@Linda Lee: I did reach out; I don't expect them to respond with anything but contempt, which is what I deserve
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 6/29/19 4:32pm chresti:

Nah-Granny's not like that, fred

Love hearing this live version of "Complete Communion," one of my favorite compositions of all time. Love to know who's playing on this--the original record didn't have vibes, of course.

fred it's not my business and i may not be aware of something but i believe i witnessed every bit of comment board over the last >5 hours and i think maybe you're overreacting -a lot! anyone who'd think you evil or deserving of contempt based on posts today doesn't deserve your company.
