A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

@trouble. It's next to impossible to remain 6' away. We are hybrid, week on in-person, week off in remote, this week remote, and there are always 6-8 students that will always be remote so navigating between students in the room and those on the big screen from home is...challenging... And then there's the issue of supplies to in school and those always remote...Vaccines probably by the end of the month out here. Onward and Upward with the Arts!

so sorry to hear @peter. for me it's all about supporting the students, art is second to that right now. sometimes that's painful.

@NGH: She does have bold tastes, in some regards: pickled herring, kalamata olives and the accompanying brine, etc. But she balks at significant picante-ness.

And she extravagantly praises my hot chocolate, and that always has some cinnamon and cayenne. So she's making progress.

I wasn't particularly familar with Abby Lincoln but then she put out a record that had Pat Metheny on it. Folks told me that she wasn't in particularly fine form on that one (I loved her voice there) so I started looking backward. Oh yes...!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33am Irene Trudel:

WoodsOfNH, I found the same thing when I first heard Abby on our local jazz station, vocally very flat. It was a tune from very late in her career. My husband urged me to go back to her earlier albums and I was transformed. I especially love Lincoln's work on (then husband) Max Roach's Freedom Now Suite.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36am WoodsOfNH (now Maine):

There are definitely voices that I can use a dose of every single day: Abbey Lincoln, Edith Piaf, Nina Simone, Cassandra Wilson...

Re: Quentin Crisp - saw him one day on his stoop (3rd or 4th street) and Said hello. We chatted for a minute and shook hands good-bye.. Lovely, soft spoken person. He had the 2nd most softest hands in the world i have Known... The softest ever were Klauss Naomi's. Did not know him either but met him after a show of his... hello and goodbye and a handshake and a thanks for the great show... I turned to my friend and said,"His hand was so soft.. It was like shaking hands with a warm cloud..." Both hands softer than a newborn's....

Hey Listener Gregory - Howdy! - Did we ever cross paths? My apologies if we've met or talked before and I don't remember. Re: returning to Champaign. It's highly unlikely. I was there from 2006-2018. It's a perfectly fine place. I particularly enjoyed having access to the university cultural perks. The lack of water, hills, trees and nature in central Illinois really got me down. I lived in Michigan until age 33. Easy access to nature was a big part of my life. Where I live currently I can see 3 different mountain ranges, I'm minutes away from complete immersion in nature. I see seals, migrating birds and running salmon regularly. Plus I'm a ferry ride away from Seattle. I'd love to be back in the midwest someday but I'm more keen on northern midwest. How about you?

@Gregory - Was it WEFT? I think WEFT unfortunately went under a few years ago. My good buddy in Champaign worked at the Highdive, Cafe Espresso and went to all the shows in the 90s so we may have some mutual connections.

@Trouble We didn't have it either, but signed up for HBO Max just for this. Turns out, there is a _ton_ over other stuff on there. (To add to the other tons of stuff everywhere these days)
Avatar 11:15am Listener Gregory:

@tim from champaign, yes it was WEFT. Sorry to hear that it has died. It was a great outlet for local dj's and to hear jazz and blues.
Avatar 11:17am still b/p:

If Bob Ross was still around, having him guest on Lurie's series would be great. Or terrible. I haven't seen the show, but Lurie specifically and sourly challenges Ross's painting attitude.

@Emory - An even finer line is musicians who think they're novelists or poets and visa versa. The bottom of the barrel is actors who think they're musicians. **coughJohnnyDeppcough***

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41am unpopularfred:

@ Webhamster Henry - I was once in a wedding band, and we would sometimes play a bossa nova version of "I wanna be sedated" during the dinner set if we ran out of songs.
I also once worked it in as the bows music for a play I wrote the music for, which had included the original reording

@Budda in my humble opinion there is some sort of supernatural good energy in the Cape Cod area. Something truly powerful. Energy center or whatever you kids call those things these days.

Kevin Ayers and Robert Wyatt in the same program. Both pivotal to the change in my teenage musical taste. When I was growing up, on Long Island, I would stay up late listening to the radio. There was a college station, somewhere in CT, that first introduced me to their music and I haven't been the same since. Wish I could remember the name of that station.

But that's all right, I'm sure it'll get fixed soon enough and I always have web. I only recently discovered WFMU (via Steve Guttenberg youtube video) and am simply in Love! A true music lover's heaven. So inspiring music and always so fresh! Really really helps with keeping mind at ease too, as there's always some new sweet music for brain to decipher
