With billows and blasts from choirs and orchesters
Buskers and talkers
Big bands and squawkers,
the Stork Club has retained its qualities of decaying elegance and dwindling significance since the late 1950s.

' Mary Lou Williams (born Mary Elfrieda Scruggs; May 8, 1910 – May 28, 1981) was an American jazz pianist, arranger, and composer. She wrote hundreds of compositions and arrangements and recorded more than one hundred records (in 78, 45, and LP versions). Williams wrote and arranged for Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman, and she was friend, mentor, and teacher to Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Tadd Dameron, Bud Powell, and Dizzy Gillespie. '

⦿Sun in ♉︎Taurus, Year of Wood 🐓Rooster
' Keith Jarrett (born May 8, 1945) is an American jazz and classical music pianist and composer. Jarrett started his career with Art Blakey, moving on to play with Charles Lloyd and Miles Davis. Since the early 1970s he has also been a group leader and a solo performer in jazz, jazz fusion, and classical music. His improvisations draw from the traditions of jazz and other genres, especially Western classical music, gospel, blues, and ethnic folk music.
In 2003, Jarrett received the Polar Music Prize, the first recipient of both the contemporary and classical musician prizes, and in 2004 he received the Léonie Sonning Music Prize. His album, The Köln Concert, released in 1975, became the best-selling piano recording in history.[citation needed] In 2008, he was inducted into the Down Beat Jazz Hall of Fame in the magazine's 73rd Annual Readers' Poll.
Jarrett has been unable to perform since suffering a stroke in February 2018. A second stroke, in May 2018, left him partially paralyzed and unable to play with his left hand. '

Hello Stork and streams, listening, enjoying but busy day here so not on the screen much.

As others have written, Mary Lou Williams was a significant composer and arranger for bands ranging from Andy Kirks Clouds of Joy to Tommy Dorsey and Benny Goodman. Her role as mentor to many early be boppers was another significant contribution to music.

Funny little story in a way about Keith Jarrett. I follow him on Instagram and at one point got a message from him, just saying Hi. I let it sit there for weeks, not sure it was him owing to, well, the fraud and whatnot of social media. Eventually, I wrote back, inquiring about his health. Said he was doing fine.

We're in Münster. way over on the West side, in the north. The guy follows a pattern: the Dept of Health clears the garbage that he's been hording in his yard, and he runs off and climbs a crane. 3 times now, at least. Bizarro. Reminds me of the Monty Python routine where someone says a certain word, and he immediately puts a bag over his head.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:42pm doctorjazz:

My Jarrett story before I go... I went to see him once, many years back, Village Vanguard. Many noisy tourists that night. He sat down at the piano, played a few notes, stopped (waiting for silence, but didn't say anything). Started again after a bit, people still talking, stopped again. Say there, got a bit quieter, started playing again. People kept talking-the 3rd time he stood up, let the piano, show over. I understood, but was so pissed off I never went to see him after that (my loss, of course).
Avatar 1:44pm Stork:

He did that a lot, apparently doc. Ridiculous, really. It's good to pressure the audience to shut the fuck up, but that's going too far.

Well, Concert vs. Dinner Club Diners is a cornerstone problem for Jazz Artists. It's not like it's something out of the blue, but by the same token just gets to be a bigger thorn in the side all the time for people I suppose ...kind of admire an Artist who knows what they don't need ...but then I didn't pay to see him...

if it's a dinner club the performer knows what he/she's getting into. appropriate to hope for a quiet crowd, but not realistic to expect it, let alone demand it.
if it's a concert hall yes it should be insisted on; but walking out isn't accomplishing that.

David i did too, right when they reformed. it probably bothered me more than it should have.
Avatar 2:10pm Stork:

WR - right on - It must be said - Jarrett is a wonderful group leader and improviser and his teaming up with so many great musicians is cuz they know that - Redman, Haden, DeJohnette, the lost is endless.
  2:11pm Dean:

Jarrett's Shostakovich is among the finest on record. His Handel suites album is gorgeous, too.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:12pm coelacanth∅:

yes this Shostakovich piece is excellent
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:13pm coelacanth∅:

Stork is it Jarrett doing all the arranging? or on some but not on all these tracks?
  2:15pm Dean:

I think Shostakovich wrote the 48 for Tatiana Nikolaeva, who has at least two traversals on record.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:15pm fred:

@David and coel: Same for me, in 2004. They called me out before the show when they spotted my WFMU T-shirt, so I got to chat with them a bit
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:18pm David (in London):

Nice one fred, the benefits of an FMU T-shirt!
  2:20pm Dean:

FEAR, "Beef Bologna"?
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:20pm coelacanth∅:

that's cool fred. i was likely wearing an fmu shirt as well but i guess i don't rate!
Avatar 2:22pm Stork:

coel: Jarrett admits that he doesn't have to arrange or write as much because he plays with guys like DeJohnette and Haden who can just make anything work - they're kind of arranging as they're writing, as they're playing. Easy for them.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:22pm coelacanth∅:

fred was it at coney island, at the siren festival?
(and i'll correct myself about them having just reformed. it was also 2004, so a year or 2 into it)

Do we have a winner? Did anybody guess Gaucho?

Ah, a touch of the Dan. Fitting very nicely with a relaxed Sunday evening vibe here Stork. Thankee.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:24pm coelacanth∅:

Stork it definitely works!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:24pm fred:

@coel: It was in Paris. The T-shirt was Terre T's, they had played on her show a few months before, I guess that's why they noticed it
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:28pm coelacanth∅:

they probably see a lot of wfmu shirts at their shows!

I heard a good story about Keith Jarrett a couple months ago. Not sure it would translate here so well though...
  2:48pm Dean:

Playing below the bridge, maybe?
Avatar 2:48pm Stork:

Go for it, rw. Don't curse. Or... no, curse a lot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...he looked @ the Bass & said - I'm Charlie Haden
...& it said - okay! What sound you want ??...
  2:48pm rw:

Short version: Met a friend and his buddy in Colorado to go skiing. The buddy had been hitchhiking as a youth and Keith gave him a ride.
  2:48pm Dean:

I'm not implying that Haden was a troll...
Avatar 2:49pm Stork:

I miss hitchhiking.

Home at last, and not a moment too soon. If anything, about 180 moments later than I'd have liked. Barkeep! Kif Jarrets* all around!

Hi hello Stork, fred, coel, DiL, doc, Rev, and anyone I might've missed. I've missed you all. This is my favorite place to spend Sunday afternoon. Joining NYC reentry traffic… not so much.

Anything queued up from the Sun Bear set? A high school buddy of mine acquired the box way back in '78 or '79.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 3:20pm adamdoesit:

Stork! I've been listening from the get-go. Now catching up on the comments and the show description. "Muscially fecund?" I thought Kif was fecund to none.
Avatar 3:23pm Stork:

How can you already be rolling, adamdoesit? You haven't even had your first Glenn Passaic today? Impressive!

I like this Hamburg '72.

The Stork Club Guide to Glen Passaic Cocktails could be a bestseller, but I guess you don't want to spill secrets. Or Glen Passaic for that matter

Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 3:53pm adamdoesit:

Crane guy: "I've gone to great lengths to have a Glen Passaic cocktail from the Stork."
Keith Jarrett: "Dee dee dee dee dee dee!"
Glenn Gould: "The Stork's Glen Passaic cocktails are, if short an "n," better than some of my pills, and better with all of them."
Pee Wee Herman: "I know you are, but what am I?"
