Favoriting Hinky Dinky Time with Uncle Michael: Playlist from May 14, 2021 Favoriting

Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Favoriting

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow
Joe Farrell (heard on tenor, soprano, and flute) did some of his finest playing while with drummer Elvin Jones' trio during 1968-1969. Joined by bassist Jimmy Garrison (in one of his first post-Coltrane recordings), Farrell really digs into group originals, obscurities, "For Heaven's Sake," and Jimmy Heath's "Gingerbread Boy." With Jones pushing him and Garrison sounding quite advanced, Farrell was consistently inspired to play at the peak of his creativity.

Get this Michael. Ed Ward wrote the first review of Little Feat in Rolling Stone. I believe it was the single of Strawberry Flats that came out months before their first album was released.

There was a New Yorker interview recently with Mr. What-Do-You-Want-To-Do-With-Your-Life. He said because he's a tall, skinny white dude he's always been typecast as overbearing authority figures.
