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.

@WR: Thanks, I'll check these later. To be honest, I miss the unpredictable in live shows. Recorded show are nice but I still feel like I'm missing something. It's my failure
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm Brian in UK:

fred I have just been looking at the Cafe Oto site. I was trying to remember the drummer who played with Lol Coxhill the first time I went there around 2010/11. Think it might have been Roger Turner. What impressed me most was his use of chains on the snare.

Dave, this track is tops.
Avatar 2:44pm Sem:

Hello, Dave, free world music lovers, & special guest, Ms. Housle!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm fred:

@Brian in UK: It very well could have been him. I saw Roger Turner use chains this way. He played with unexpected people many times too. Open minded guy to say the least
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Brian in UK:

De Sica's The Bicycle Thieves is the saddest thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm fred:

@Brian in UK: It could also have been Steve Noble, another great innovative drummer
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm Brian in UK:

fred, it is funny that then Cafe Oto was new and few people there, now it is a cool place to go and getting a ticket is difficult. Mike Cooper was playing with Lol. Went over to chat, cool fella.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm fred:

Seriously, it's a precious skill to feel when a set is coming to an end, so that I can move to the bar before it gets rushed

was just reading 2015 NYTIMES review of Uncivilized and the tune starts as if on cue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm fred:

@doc: but you got your two shots now, why not support live music while it's still there?
(Unrelated?) did your daughter release another take on your musical taste?

Jalopy is a very cool space! I got to be part of The Mekons live Existentialism recording there a few years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm doctorjazz:

(Listening in the car, so need to be able to pull over to post).
Fred-i did get my 2 doses, and I'm just past the 2 weeks thatis needed for it to generate good immunity. However, my wife just for dose 2 today, still needs time to process it for good immunity. And, it's 95% effective which sounds (and is) good, but it means of 100 people are exposed, 5 will still get it (my dad had heart surgery in the late 70s, with about a 90% success rate, and didn't survive it-statistics can be a bit misleading). And, my daughter is still with us after fleeing Manhattan at the beginning of the outbreak, and who knows when she'll be able to get the vaccine (and it's not clear that vaccinated folks cannot still pick up the virus and spread it). I'd LOOOOOVE to great some live music!!!!
(She hasn't posted more"Why does my dad listen to...", but she's posted a bunch of other short videos on Facebook, Twitter, TicToc, Instagram, funny (in my unbiased opinion). Check them out, Rebecca Skowron (and like/comment if you do, she's hoping enough likes will get Saturday Night Live or similar to discover her...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm doctorjazz:

Did I say I'm loving the set???!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm Gina Bacon:

Thanks, Dave! I'll be ready!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Gina Bacon:

Cool!

@doctorjazz: If she gets discovered through something that involves you, are you going to insist on being around all the time?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm fred:

I mean, like a Hitchcock cameo, but with WFMU swag
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm doctorjazz:

No, Fred, I'm just going to take my commission. 😄
