Postwar atmospherica. High bop modernism and Afro-Latin sounds, twilight exotica and soundtrack moods, soul stompers and weepers, hypnotic R&B and blues, mystical '60s pop, lonely country, lonelier rock 'n' roll, instrumental weirdness, electronic creaking. Bringing worlds beyond into the worlds at hand.

Kris! David D! So happy you've boarded this leaky vessel
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03pm Uncle Michael:

Lovely Lee Mallory song!
Avatar 10:03pm Kris Holmes:

i was playing through some arc finds so i had to drag myself away from the turntable
Avatar 10:04pm Little Danny:

Hi Uncle M! I hadn't realized that was a Mallory comp., makes total sense tho
Avatar 10:04pm hyde:

i stayed up later than i should have to listen to Funky Corners live last night. will i stay up later than i should tonight listening to The Cool Blue Flame? seems likely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm Uncle Michael:

I'm probably going to fade tonight due to last night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm JtotheK:

good evening to one and all.
Avatar 10:05pm geezerette:

Never fear, there's chewing gum for the leaks.
Hello Danny and crew.
Avatar 10:05pm Little Danny:

I hope so too hyde! And hello!
Avatar 10:06pm Little Danny:

Don't go Uncle M! It's not a party without you
Avatar 10:07pm Little Danny:

Hi Jason, hi geez! My friends with good tastes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07pm Uncle Michael:

I'll hang for a bit but after that you'll have to make do with just my ears.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm Uncle Michael:

storm's about to really hit the fan here
Avatar 10:08pm Little Danny:

@Kris: don't worry, I'll be getting to some music you actually like soon
Avatar 10:09pm Kris Holmes:

shaking my head at this BMW heh
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Uncle Michael:

I love this Beemer!
Avatar 10:09pm Kris Holmes:

ok the organ solo is redeeming, slightly
Avatar 10:09pm Flash Strap:

I'm about as socked out as you can get but enjoying the fabulous flame while I'm still awake
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Uncle Michael:

Wait for my James Last tribute show! (I kid...I think)
Avatar 10:10pm Little Danny:

Thanks Flash! And hello! And great show!
Avatar 10:11pm Kris Holmes:

i think i'll be working & unable to tune in for that one there Michael :)
Avatar 10:11pm Flash Strap:

thanks LD! god that flute on this track
Avatar 10:11pm geezerette:

Funky Faith? Astounded.
Avatar 10:11pm Little Danny:

with god my witness I will break you down Kris Holmes! you will come to love Percy Faith!
Avatar 10:12pm hyde:

just got a wild storm here too. nice cool winds came in with the cool blue flame.
Avatar 10:12pm Little Danny:

@geez: that album is really one of the great easy-funk LPs out there. It's quite psychedelic at moments
Avatar 10:12pm Kris Holmes:

Dan, I promise you that a Percy Faith record will never enter any house that I live in, ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Uncle Michael:

So none of you crate diggers has that Johnny and his Cellar Rockers Sukiyaki I'm looking for?
Avatar 10:13pm Little Danny:

I will get one in there sir. You won't even know it.
Avatar 10:13pm Kris Holmes:

Cal Tjader on the other hand, several of his records reside here
Avatar 10:14pm Little Danny:

@UM: sadly no. I didn't know that selection at all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Uncle Michael:

Not even the Internet can help me with that one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm JtotheK:

the 'mambo with tjader' lp gets a fair amount of spins here...so does the 'afro cuban fantasy' 10" ep.
Avatar 10:16pm geezerette:

Oh no, that choir.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm Uncle Michael:

No one can bag on Tjader around me...Enoch Light, *maybe*.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm JtotheK:

re: Percy Faith - danny, you spun a track from his 'corazon' LP which was pretty good! i at least have to find that one...
Avatar 10:20pm Kris Holmes:

Oh man, Roy Hytower!! You are literally the only person besides myself I've hear play this!! Is yours black label or yellow or white?
Avatar 10:20pm still b/p:

I would....like to dance slow with someone late in the apartment with Forever among the selections playing on the hi-fi. I would.
Avatar 10:21pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Danny and all
Avatar 10:22pm hyde:

hehe, record collectors
Avatar 10:23pm hyde:

(i love them)
Avatar 10:27pm Little Danny:

still b/p! coel!
Avatar 10:28pm Little Danny:

Gotta catch up on my records but I'll be back in the comments momentarily...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm Uncle Michael:

I'm glad it's dark. All this red and yellow shit would freak me out.
Avatar 10:31pm still b/p:

Dark now, but 'tis the season to get some severe business almost every afternoon out there,ain't it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm Uncle Michael:

well, often enough
Avatar 10:34pm hyde:

@UM geez, i just had a storm but it sure didn't look like that round here
Avatar 10:36pm coelacanth∅:

i'd like you to time that hail storm please.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Uncle Michael:

No hail, blessedly. Time for me to pull the covers up around my ears. Night all. Keep spinnin' 'em at me, Danny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm melinda:

hi peoples!
Avatar 10:44pm Little Danny:

I love Tjader's entire catalog, Jason. I don't think I can say that about most artists' catalogs
Avatar 10:45pm Little Danny:

Hellloooo Melinda! Delighted!
Avatar 10:45pm hyde:

like Uncle Michael, i'm on the fade. luckily, melinda is here to take over for us. good night!
Avatar 10:46pm Little Danny:

@still b/p: I love that image of "Forever." It is indeed the stuff of hushed moments
Avatar 10:46pm Little Danny:

I wish I could inject some aural speed in yours and UM's ears, Hyde. But sleep well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm melinda:

I should be going to bed soon but i don't feel appropriately tired. I like the psych stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm JtotheK:

re: tjader - soul sauce and solar heat also get a fair amount of spins... and i hope to someday find 'sounds out burt bacharach'.
Avatar 10:53pm Dano59:

speed is overrated...
Avatar 10:53pm Little Danny:

I'm glad Melinda! I'll try and keep it going!
Avatar 10:54pm Little Danny:

@jason: Tjader's Fantasy discography is especially strong but I love those Skye LPs too
Avatar 10:54pm Dano59:

this is more my speed ... trippy
Avatar 10:55pm Little Danny:

Hi Dano59! I wouldn't know, but I can imagine!
Avatar 10:56pm Little Danny:

Musically speaking my favorite drug mood? Maybe like marijuana and opium? I often seek the most atmospheric and immersive records
Avatar 10:57pm Dano59:

floating ... fluid ... music is the drug here / no further enhancement needed (at my age)
Avatar 10:58pm Dano59:

I hear cough syrup is along that mood line too ..
Avatar 11:00pm Little Danny:

I hear ya Dano. Music is transportive
Avatar 11:00pm Dano59:

Attended an immersive Grateful Dead experience recently and it reminded me the music is enough to transport you (I was going to say just that, really)
Avatar 11:01pm Dano59:

although I kicked 'transportative' around for a sec or two first ...
  11:02pm MrFab:

'sup y'all! Someone say Percy Faith? Love that "Theme From A Summer Place" - a classic of anti-surf music, where the beach is not for fun and partying, but for lonely melancholy wandering (see also ShangriLas "Remember Walking on the Sand," Pat Boone "Love Letters in the Sand," Acker Bilk "Stranger on the Shore," Johnny Mathis "Wonderful Wonderful," Beach Boys "Lonely Sea"...hey, I've invented a new genre...
Avatar 11:02pm geezerette:

Danny & Dano, feel the same.
Avatar 11:04pm Dano59:

Danny had one on the blog -- seaside reverie -- "I'm Blue?" (oh-so-blue-ue without you-ou-ou)
Avatar 11:08pm geezerette:

This is hypnotic.
Avatar 11:10pm Little Danny:

Whoa Mr. Fab! Hi! I love new ways of grouping music, and your anti-surf-music observation is making me tingle
Avatar 11:13pm Dano59:

it's beautiful. I'd want this on the car radio any night of the week
  11:19pm MrFab:

Ha! I'll try to remember some more. it seems too have been a popular theme in the '60s.
There's the Ventures "Lonely Sea," dif from the Beach Boys song of the same name. I'll have to check Dano's suggestion.
Avatar 11:23pm Little Danny:

Oh man Dano59 you and me both. I love late night lonely road listening
Avatar 11:25pm geezerette:

I can see this in a David Lynch movie. Something else this week put me in the same mood.
Avatar 11:27pm Little Danny:

Y'all are nailing it tonight Geez. Lynch is a major musical touchstone for me!
Avatar 11:29pm Little Danny:

TWIN PEAKS: how are we feeling about its return? I'm cautiously enthusiastic. I'm wary but happy
Avatar 11:30pm geezerette:

Danny, did we have this same conversation last week? Having deja vu, appropriately.
Avatar 11:31pm northguineahills:

Angelo Bandalamenti on PCP, quaaludes, and bennies on dead man's curve in a 50s Chevy convertible is where it's at for me...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm JtotheK:

i'm excited. however i have 20+ episodes of season 2 left to watch, and then FWWM -- i saw them years ago -- before i watch the new episodes. i'm trying to avoid any/all articles and spoilers - it won't be easy the next couple weeks.
Avatar 11:31pm Dano59:

that song might have been on 'Bright Lights!!' , Danny
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm JtotheK:

Ruben Fort 45 was great.
Avatar 11:33pm Little Danny:

Thanks J2tK! And, Dano, you're embarrassing me. But thank you!
Avatar 11:33pm Dano59:

I've been playing Julee Cruise and the xx album in bated anticipation ... I might watch FWWM as a refresher.
Avatar 11:33pm still b/p:

I did see the inaugural TP movie. I don't know nuthin' 'bout the subsequent series, but will go to a premiere party Sunday, sans familiarity, sans vocabulary.
Avatar 11:33pm Little Danny:

@geez: my short term memory is terrible but that mighta been some other show
Avatar 11:34pm coelacanth∅:

11.32 and only now can i focus on what's important.
(the music)
Avatar 11:34pm geezerette:

Yeah, I kind of don't want to revisit,would hate to be disappointed.
Avatar 11:35pm Dano59:

I watched the 2 seasons start to finish a couple years ago ... a lot was revealed to me after seeing only pieces of the series way back when.
Avatar 11:36pm geezerette:

Still b/p, that's the way to do it.

Hey coel, good to see you.
Avatar 11:37pm Little Danny:

@Dano59 MAN those Cruise records are incredible. And wholly unique.
Avatar 11:38pm Little Danny:

Also, many others have pointed it out but FWWM is crucial. And great.
Avatar 11:38pm geezerette:

Love this, the dissonance. Sonic ice cream headache.
Avatar 11:39pm Little Danny:

@geez totally agree re:disappoint possibilities. I'm gonna wait for some reviews before I commjit
Avatar 11:40pm Dano59:

No expectations here. I'll let it unfold without dumping on it ... Saw some cool TP tarot cards on a graphic arts blog ... they nailed the iconography and mystery.
@geezerette love that description
Avatar 11:40pm geezerette:

Same. Loving this set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm Doug Schulkind:

I've been lurking, but twerking to your mighty sounds, Little Danny. Good evening, Sir!
Avatar 11:41pm still b/p:

Stream bump?
Avatar 11:41pm geezerette:

Thanks Dano!
Avatar 11:44pm Little Danny:

'cause it wouldn't be the Cool Blue Flame without at least one Internet dropout
Avatar 11:44pm Little Danny:

Dooouuuggggg! Hello!
  11:51pm MrFab:

Aaaaand we're back.
Avatar 11:52pm still b/p:

Bad weather in Topeka causing electronic havoc nationwide!
Avatar 11:54pm geezerette:

Thanks for wild show Danny!
Good night friends.
  11:55pm JtotheK:

Good tunes! Thanks Danny. Good night all.
Avatar 11:58pm coelacanth∅:

good night all Thanks Danny
Avatar 11:59pm Dano59:

great sides as always Danny. If I find that song or it finds me, I'll let you know
Avatar 11:59pm still b/p:

Thanks. Double thanks.
Avatar 12:01am Little Danny:

Thanks to every one of you! Sending you gobs of love until next week! See y'all around these parts in the meantime
