weinstein's avatar View weinstein's profile Options

Ridgewood Radio features concert recordings by adventurous bands and experimental musicians and restored archival tapes from private and institutional collections captured at venues large and small across the five boroughs of New York. It is produced by David Weinstein and Outpost Artists Resources operating out of the Ridgewood section of Queens, NY, where you'll find more yellow bricks than on the road to Oz and the cemetery of your choice is never more than a few blocks from home.

No, never mind, Hi David and you Ridgewooders out there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/5/17 3:05pm listener james from westwood:

Howdy, all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/5/17 3:05pm doctorjazz:

Don't expect that here, nice stuff though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/5/17 3:09pm doctorjazz:

Ahhh, that's more like it. Man, strings and bows can get some amazing sounds.
Avatar Wed. 4/5/17 3:09pm weinstein:

Okay, got our ducks in row now. I confused my own self with that 1960s jazz too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/5/17 3:17pm Webhamster Henry:

This is oddly soothing. I'm also imagining how this bass is being abused.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/5/17 3:19pm Webhamster Henry:

Cello that is. My band has a bass guy who can get some good
squeeks out of it!

March 29 was quite a night at Sump!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/5/17 3:28pm doctorjazz:

Just last Wednesday...
Avatar Wed. 4/5/17 3:35pm weinstein:

That same night also had Sarah Bernstein's pretty bizarre band Iron Dog which, if I can untangle my messy mix of that, I will post one day.
Avatar Wed. 4/5/17 4:22pm northguineahills:

Really digging this side of William Parker.
Avatar Wed. 4/5/17 4:38pm weinstein:

Can you hear the didjeridu trio in there?
Avatar Wed. 4/5/17 4:39pm weinstein:

The comes the waterphones...
Avatar Wed. 4/5/17 4:52pm northguineahills:

I saw William Parker at Tonic around 2003 w/ didjeridus, amongst other things.

I saw William Parker w/ Mathew Shipp (Sam Rivers opened) When I saw that show as a sophemore in college, it got me out of my indie ghetto. A rather formative show (in a usually rock venue in FL).
Avatar Wed. 4/5/17 4:57pm weinstein:

Morley singing. Do you know this voice?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/5/17 5:00pm doctorjazz:

Nice voice, pretty piece.
  Wed. 4/5/17 5:02pm Dean:

The Donso Ngoni puts me in mind of those Yaala Yaala records out of Mali I mentioned last week.
Avatar Wed. 4/5/17 5:02pm weinstein:

Yes, Dean! Ruth followed your lead and listened to that all week. Running over so running out. Thanks all once again.
