Afro-Columbian festival this weekend in Columbia. Ned Sublette is leading a group going. I went on one of hus Cuban trips. Was amazing.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 7:38pm

5/4 time Konitz and all, at least so far.

Love this cc/OA - one of my 2021 favorites

Never seen either live, but desperately want to

Dude is playing a LEAF! 🍃🍃🍃
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:17pm

Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:17pm

Blowing across it? How else?
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:18pm

This tune is a standard in the region, have heard many versions of it. Love it.

Dilson played the leaf open, resting on his tongue, hands free, with his mouth as the resonator. Though a leaf can also be played rolled or folded in half, this method allowed for more precision, a tethered brilliance.

Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:20pm

Thanks for the link, interesting!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:25pm

Interesting. I've seen people hold a wet leaf between their hands or between the thumb and forefinger and blow, sorta like a harmonica. According to the link it says this performer is unique and I'd agree. Sorta like those who would play harmonica with the harmonica totally in their mouth, no hand, just tongue action.

I forgot my glasses, so I can only *hear* the deviance. If there is some deviance that is passing me by, please alert me to it. I apologize for the error.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:57pm

Louise Landes Levi, though I have benefited from her work as a translator and musician, I wasn't specifically aware of her until now. Wacky world we live in, she doesn't have a Wikipedia page (though mentioned in dozens) but she is on Facebook.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:01pm

At first I was surprised to hear this is Tom Scott, sounded like long lost Trane. Then I saw the title of the piece...
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:04pm

Scott was later known as a jazz fusion player, if I remember correctly. He was involved with Joni Mitchell's jazz adventures as well.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:05pm

I do like this track!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:07pm

Lewis much attention in the jazz press recently, have to see him one of these days (has a big band).
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:07pm

Tom Scott was key player in L.A. Express, which was fusiony, and did several soundtracks.
Avatar 🥁 9:08pm
Listener Gregory:

Scott was a mainstream player early in his career, but my sense was that he "sold out," when that was a thing in the 70s. Lot of repetitious beat-oriented stuff in his albums. But he was no doubt a very talented player. Hey, @doctorj!
Avatar 🥁 9:09pm
Listener Gregory:

James Brandon Lewis won the best jazz album of the year in the Downbeat critics' poll, but not for this, for "Jesup Wagon." I haven't heard that yet, but just ordered it.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:09pm

James Brandon Lewis is great. Have watched a few web streams on which he was leader or featured performer.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:10pm

LG! You found your glasses!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:11pm

Hey, @LG! (didn't get to Tarrytown Friday, outdoor Joel Forrester Quartet concert was cancelled because of a forecast for rain, which didn't happen. Oh Well.
I think I have Jesup Wagon somewhere, but don't recall listening to it much (too much STUFF coming in, too little time).
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:12pm

Do love Fear Not, though, very cool!

Yes, I ordered a CD! Call me a dinosaur!

That Dan Rose was very new to me. It was a bit like Ornette on the Half Shell, but still pretty good I thought.

Listener Gregory:

How on earth did Lennie Tristano end up in something called The Sing-Song Room? Ack!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:31pm

Tristano jumps out, such a characteristic sound (he didn't Give his Drummer some, supposed to have hated jazz drummers, and kept them very subdued, "just the time dude, don't drop no bombs or make excessive noise").

Listener Gregory:

You guys were supposed to alert me if anything deviant happened, and then this Anton Bruhin is dropped on my head! Sheesh.
Avatar 🥁 9:40pm
Listener Gregory:

According to Justice Alito, aborted sessions will now have to be carried through to publication. So, I guess something good will come out of that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm

could you imagine La Monte Young/Marian Zazeela on CBS Recs???!!!
Avatar 🥁 9:44pm
Listener Gregory:

@ngh, CBS had a serious classical line then, so I can imagine it, though I'm not surprised it didn't happen.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:45pm

Major labels occasionally went jazz, 20 century Classical, back in the days when they weren't all sales driven, had some execs who thought of releasing interesting music (and thought it would bring prestige to the label, which would ultimately help the bottom line as well). The Golden Age...

Behrman produced a bunch of LPs for Columbia, Odyssey
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:47pm

Could be an Appalachian vocal group, or Tuvan Throat singers.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:49pm

Yep David, on that discogs link we can see the Terry Riley and Steve Reich LPs that I was going to mention. La Monte Young makes perfect sense to be next in line.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm

@Listener Gregory: I do have some CBS Recs where they dabbled into classical.

I knew Behrman was a producer..... (this is tres nice).
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:53pm

Mitchell and Moye with the new generation AEC. Have not listened closely to this release yet. Already 3 years old. Yikes.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:54pm

Thanks, David! (Like the new AEC track).
Laters all!
Avatar 🥁 9:57pm
Listener Gregory:

Thanks, David. I only observed a bit of deviance, but it was enough to keep me on the straight and narrow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm

Thanks, David!!!!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:58pm

Another excellent episode David! Thank you very much.

Thanks everyone, see you all next week!!
