Hello David and Observers.

Hello, we are live!

hey @Observations! digging the tunes
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 7:17pm

Hi all!

My 2006 review of Josef K www.phoenixnewtimes.com...
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 7:36pm

Thank you for this, Heiner & Alfred. I'm not sure which way is up. Greatly enjoying it.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 7:45pm

Although Harth has worked with many artists I follow I have not previously become aware of him. Definitely not aware of the work with Goebbels. More music. More music. Where will I find the time.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 7:52pm

Love Herbie Nichols (Bob Brainen had been playing him weekly on his Saturday show for a while now).
Doug Schulkind:

Never enough Herbie.

Hi Doug, welcome to the deviance
Doug Schulkind:

The deliverance.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:15pm

Back in the day, when I would work in datacenters, until past midnight, I would sing Click Clack while waiting for the subway.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:23pm

This is cool (but it drove my wife out of the room...)
Listener Gregory:

I thought I had observed some deviance, but then I realized it was only deviation. Does that count?

no judgments made here, whatever works is ok
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:40pm

From the bandcamp link for Sélébéyone
"Throughout the album, the voices of master musicians like Billy Higgins (on “Gagaku”) and Jackie McLean (“Go In”) – both of whom converted to Islam – are heard speaking to the complex relationship between their spiritual and creative practices. "
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:41pm

this track is pretty wild
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:53pm

inner city boundaries- one of my all time favorite songs
Listener Gregory:

Poor Zorn got lambasted for this by a lot of mainstream jazz critics/fans. Maybe that’s just what he wanted?

"Lambasted": https://www.macfound.org/fellows/class-of-2006/john-zorn
Listener Gregory:

Ha! Yes, but in 1984, the Monk fans and reviewers did not quite get his rendition using mostly duck calls and skronk guitar. That was the genius of Hal Wilner in choosing that group of artists.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:21pm

Was reading a review of the Nara recording and found this sentence: "The album Nara is the soundtrack that perfectly stages the divergent ideas that were crossing Brazil while offering a musical vision updated to the latest taste."
note the term: divergent
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:21pm

That Monk tribute album was great!

divergent - nice note, thanks WR, great concept
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:24pm

Got to see Glenn Branca way back in the day (around when this came out) at a little NY club called The Mudd Club. I don't think those overtones are captured the same way on record, so much was happening above what the musicians were playing, it was amazing!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:24pm

great cover art on the ascension would be cool to have on LP
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:24pm

nice @docjazz! i can imagine
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:26pm

Doc, your pointing out of that album reminds me what a loss the passing of Hal Willner due to covid-19 was.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:26pm

I'm struggling through some required office online training, may have to shoot myself...
Listener Gregory:

When you think about it, nothing is better for a young avant-garde musician to be accused of disrespect and even trying to destroy jazz/classical/all music (choose one).
@doctorj, word!

You're right, of course, LG, but I think I'm more ruffled by "mainstream jazz" critics and fans.

"Upstart crow!"
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:27pm

that’s right WR. what a loss indeed RIP
Listener Gregory:

@Dean, I’m ruffled by everyone now. It’s official.

Online training isn't training at all. It's machine-enforced painting-by-numbers. Whenever I "pass" one of these moronic endeavors I print out the "certificate" and hang it outside my office.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:31pm

When Branca and his guitar army were playing this stuff, the guitars were hanging, making this unholy noise, while the overtones floated over the room. You can hear it a bit on record, but, man...
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:34pm

Hey, Dean, Streaming this show through the Technics! (Which is probably going to make it take twice as long to get through this @#&$&#@!! &!?! & Course, but may preserve my sanity).
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:35pm

*guitars were banging...
Listener Gregory:

@doctorj, I don’t know what you’re talking about: I’m hearing the Branca piece perfectly through my $4.99 earbuds. I think there’s a guitar.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:38pm

LG, I'll get you $20 earbuds! (Actually hate earbuds, use either in ear or over ear headphones)

How is the Technics doing, doctorjazz? I gotta say I continue to admire it on a daily basis. Ain't perfect, but it's musical!

hi from the Zia breakroom.. this is a cool track!

By the way, a neighbor of mine across the street to whom I've sung the praises of my beloved Linn purchased a used Systemdek with a Linn Basik Plus tonearm. It seems to have issues, so I'm investigating, but I'm so pleased he has ventured into good sound.
Listener Gregory:

This sounds exactly like me babysitting my nieces when they were young.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:43pm

@Dean, getting there with it. The Technics app on my phone worked for a few days, then stopped, but between the buttons on the player and the remote (which was designed by a sadist), I'm able to access most functions. Still haven't figured out connecting an external hard drive. And it sounds very nice (but it's not my Linn...)
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:45pm

I remember Systemdek...
Love this Zenon!

Hey Peter! Yeah, wild - Soul Vine Shaman was recorded in Ecuador, South America on November 6, 1976.

hey Peter! Yeah, wild! Soul Vine Shaman was recorded in Ecuador, South America on November 6, 1976. not sure why it didn't recognize me in previous post.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:50pm

I have two or three Zenon releases in my bandcamp wish list. Someday....
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:51pm

Sounds like a really long wish list, WR.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:54pm

I'm close to the end of this course, eyes glazed.
Also close to the end of the show, which I really enjoyed. Thanks, David!

Spoke toosoon... The Dreaded quiz...
Listener Gregory:

@doctorj, we are all so pleased that you are finally trained. Use it in good health!
Thanks a mil, David! Great show.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 10:00pm

I'm done with work too, but honesty haven't been productive for the last couple of hours, have mostly been reading about the music David has been playing.

Thank you David!

Good luck with the quiz Doc J. Onward.

have a good evening, see you all next week
