Listener comments!

  9:05am annie:

lay some smooth tunes on me bro.
  9:08am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

I scream, you scream. We all scream for Yusef Lateef.
  9:10am Parq:

Respect Yusef!
  9:11am Drummer Some:

Morning dear ears,
At some later date, I urge you all to go have a listen to a "in his own words" radio documentary on Yusef over on the Website of Boston's WGBH. The only voice you hear is Yusef's, talking about his life and music. An absolute MUST listen! Go here:
  9:17am PKNY:

Thanks for the link, I'll have to listen to that after lunch today. Looking forward to what's coming up in your set!
  9:28am jude:

this is great so far Doug...Thank you so much :) and Yusef ;)
  9:36am J-Mar:

What an awesome way to start the day.
  9:37am annie:

this is just what the doctor ordered!!
  9:51am Listener Dave from NH:

After the story on BotB and the tunes in the opening set, I'm sold on checking out that link later on.
  9:54am Drummer Some:

Friends, here are some more of my thoughts on Yusef (on the WFMU blog) you might find to be a nice accompaniment to the music:
  10:00am krexus:

man what a beautiful set. Just had to chime in with a word of thanks. Making my day already, and it's just 10am.
  10:03am trouble:

gorgeous birthday broadcast doug. when do we cut the cake?
  10:05am Cecile:

Dude, Yusef is a rock star. Getting a major grant and he's almost 90! Awesome.
  10:13am Hugo:

I wonder what "pre-bird" refers to re. that Mingus track. I am now downloading the "Complete Birdland Broadcasts 1961-1962", approx. 3 hours in all. Bird is Birdland? Possibly?

BTW, Lateef is in one of those sets - from October 1961.
  10:18am Drummer Some:

My guess is that in Pre-Bird, Mingus is referring to a tradition in jazz preceding Charlie Parker. Mingus always paid the highest debt to the influence of Duke Ellington, so I am guessing that he is paying hommage to jazz's earlier history.

Of course you know this, but I would do anything to have a listen to that 1961 session w/Yusef at Birdland.
  10:20am bruce:

  10:20am holland oats:

satie, wow, cool
  10:21am Cecile:

Is that Satie piece available anywhere? It's lovely!
  10:22am Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

Why does this song make me think of Geritol?
  10:25am Hugo:

On the subject of downloads, here's one from the archives:

Walker Art Center
McGuire Theater
Minneapolis, MN

I suppose it's the one mentioned here:

I haven't listened to it yet, but I'll push it to the top of the pile ...

Doug, your explanation sounds very reasonable ...
  10:28am Parq:

Finally made it to the desk. Crushed with work, but glad to have this show to get me through. Drumer Some, thanks for the edit.
  10:31am Cecile:

  10:34am Hugo:

Well, at least I've got the audio, Cecile. Which of course is not the same as being there ...
  10:36am Cecile:

although the current Walker Auditorium makes me jumpy. It resembles nothing so much as the video set for the Scorpions' Rock You Like Hurricane. It has these weird kind of opera boxes. I feel like I'm at a UFC cage match when I go to a show there now.
  10:39am gumby:

digging the Lateef show Doug.
  10:56am monica:

hi doug! loving the trib, who's singing? sounds like comedian harmonists.
  10:56am Harvey:

This is so cool
  11:03am annie:

doug, this has been nice.. i am leaving early today... thanks soo muuch..
  11:07am holland oats:

welcome to the machine, yusef
  11:09am Drummer Some:

I surely did/does sound like the Comedian H's. I'll have to poke around and see if they did In a Little Spanish Town. Thanks for the notion.
  11:22am Cecile:

This sounds crazy, Doug, but maybe Yusuf could be the guest of honor on this show at his 90th birthday, schedules and the good Lord willing?

I can't believe you only met him once!!!
  11:27am Cecile:

I mean, let me rephrase this. I own a ton of Fall records, but have never met Mark E. Smith. That's not such a big deal to me.

But you have to meet him again, Doug! I'd love to hear the two of you riffing off each other.
  11:28am Drummer Some:

It is sort of ridiculous that I haven't endeavored to have more contact with Yusef. From everything I've heard, he is a kind and welcoming soul. The depths of my idolatry have hampered my ability to make mortal contact. Sigh. There is progress though. At 2am this morning when I finished working on today's show, I sent Dr. Lateef an email. Maybe it will lead somewhere...
  11:29am Rob:

Great show today, Doug. I made it a point to listen live and I'm glad I did. I might even have to listen to it again on the archive!
  11:31am Cecile:

Oh, that's awesome Doug! Excellent.
  11:32am Evan:

Good stuff! I'm streaming your show in my high school English classroom right now as I've got a couple of students who are huge Yusef Lateef fans. I wish I'd been that cool when I was 17!
  11:33am jill:

great show. Met him once in Toronto. And you were right on about your comments about Joel Dorn. Great show. By the way, apparently i can't do simple addition
  11:36am PMD:

Doug, how's the job search? Sorry, haven't been listening in too much lately.
  11:42am Drummer Some:

Thanks for asking. Actually, I decided to go back to school, which I am now doing full time. Weird but true.
  11:46am PMD:

School of Rock? har...
  11:51am bill:

thank you for including Russell and Eliot
  11:52am Kris:

this is great
it's the kind of thing that brings one to a very advanced point of view (illusory of course)
  11:54am nna:

Didn't know anything about Yusef Lateef before today - what a treat. Thanks.
  11:59am PMD:

Anyways, good for you Doug. Hope you are enjoying. And thanks for the lovely music.
  12:02pm Drummer Some:

This is one day I'm GLAD Bryce is late. I will keep playing Yusef until Bryce arrives!
  12:10pm LizGig:

Doug, you mentioned you've put some Yusef Lateef downloads on the blog. I have never visited the WFMU blogs: can you provide a direct link to your post so I know where to go?
  12:11pm Cecile:

PBI: click on "in peace" LizGig
  12:11pm jk:

Hey Doug,
Play some Yusef Lateef this morning,
  12:13pm LizGig:

Brill! Thanks Doug.
  4:56pm gh (in maine):

One of the best-assembled radio shows I've ever heard!
  3:54pm v k:

i listen to your show weekly. this weeks blows me away. i'm on my 3rd listen. and have sent playlist link to many comrades. keep on keepin' on!
  2:46pm trs:

Had to miss this on Friday and as ever, am glad for the archive. On to the second half. So far so really great, Doug.
