A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Could you play some American music, please? I've got a child here. She shouldn't be exposed to foreign arts.
Avatar 9:22am Brian in UK:

@adrian in mpls How are you doing, old bean?
Avatar 9:23am Brian in UK:

There is no such thing as American music, if I may be so bold.

  9:24am George 'Cannibal' Fitzhugh:

LOL. Common misconception. Normal traditional music for normal traditional people. Nunna that decadent, bohemian, communist claptrap from abroad.

I love the melodica on this Freddi McKay track.

jazz is a truly american music, many would say.

@Brian in UK - doing fairly well - still blissed out from seeing Chris Forsyth/Solar Motel last night! sleeping on couches is getting old, though.

There's also that extended riff in that Godard film In Praise of Love about how America (as a name for the US) doesn't exist...doesn't refer to anything specific
Avatar 9:30am Sandy in Houston:

Us Americans know that America means America, and y'all know what I mean and if you don't you can suck it. :)

Yes Sah.
In lieu of nothing off to market for some fish and make it snapper.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- point for doca & adrian
...& to AndrewC; there's Native American music (though we regret to refer to them by the name of Columbus' mapmaker)
...has been remarked that New Orleans is more Caribbean than the rest of the United States - & that's the birthplace of Jazz if anywhere is - Congo Square there most specifically, a designated park they let the Slaves drum & dance. The 1st thing the Slavers usually did was destroy the Indigenous & African Drums. They were no fools! Bastards, but no fools...
@Sandy: ...that's 'Merica - one 'A...

Hiya, Trouble, and those who know the tune to the song "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen." And everyone.

...but - Jazz is neither (solely) African nor European, I believe we can say
...I think Gershwin may be a good example of an organic (natural) fusion of several immigrant influences that could've only happened here in the U.S. (NYC even maybe)...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01am Adrian in London:

Hello from the sunshine city. I see you played Grouper earlier. That record is stunningly beautiful. I love everything she does but Ruins is fantastic, probably my favourite thing of the year, along with the Scott/Sunn record.

You can't favorite that song.

@duke: A lesson for life.
Avatar 10:06am TDK60:

Mornin' Trouble & all. Saw the new WFMU film yesterday; fun and serious. Ken was there for Q&A afterwards. One small criticism is, I wish they'd addressed, a bit more, the station's eclectic music. Otherwise, great.

Nice to find you still here on Tuesday AM - for some reason I had convinced myself that your slot had moved and that I was going to have to go through something analogous to mixing up Thursdays and tuesdays based on when Trouble is on the radio…

(really like the art this week!)
