Listener comments!

Avatar 3:07am Yair Yona:

what a brilliant kick off
  3:16am mark r:

Glad you dug it, we're gonna hear a lot of the early Impulse! stuff in this first hour. The classic quartet. Had to play one track with Miles, though...
  3:47am Mike tp:

elvins kicking up a storm.thanks for these !!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48am Vincent Nifigance:

I'm up, I'm up...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10am Guido from Cologne:

Good morning Mark!
By very instinct I started to read a Trane-biography yesterday.
Not aware of the date.
  4:12am mark r:

A happy coincidence, as we're doing an all-Coltrane show tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45am Guido from Cologne:

Trane and Monk were my entrance to Jazz when I was 15/16.
  4:50am mark r:

I wish I had time for something from the Trane/Monk at Carnegie Hall concert, but alas...
  5:04am Santos L Halper:

Hold onto yer hats indeed. Thanks for all the Trane, mark!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05am Guido from Cologne:

Heavy Stuff!
Did you know that Trane actually took a couple of lessions with Ortette Coleman? (not for recording this album though ... Ascension reminds me more of Albert Ayler.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08am Guido from Cologne:

... mot really Ayler though ...

Is Eric Dolphy involved?
Don't remember.
Avatar 5:08am Scraps:

Okay, I have to post: Ascension is not terrifying (to me): it is beautiful. (Actually, I don't think it's terrifying to most people; most people just didn't get it.) Now back to listening. Thank you.
  5:09am markr:

I did not know that, Guido. The liner notes to this album ("Ascension") liken it to Coleman's "Free Jazz" and they say that Trane was a big admirer of Ayler, although for some reason he didn't bring him in for this date (Marion Brown, Pharaoh Sanders and Archie Sheep are all on here, though, so the avant-garde is well-represented). Sadly, Dolphy had already passed at this point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10am Guido from Cologne:

Ayler played at Coltrane's funeral service.
Avatar 5:10am Scraps:

(Love Marion Brown. So, so underrated.)
Avatar 5:10am duke:

I'm glad I woke up early
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11am Vincent Nifigance:

everyone's awake now!
  5:12am markr:

Interesting. Didn't know that, either. Thanks for the info, Guido. So agree, Scraps (nice to see you again, btw.) Marion is one of my all-time favorites, love his mid-sixties Blue Note stuff. Welcome, Duke. Yes, Vincent, this would be kind of tough to sleep through.
  5:12am Ajay:

Fantastic show
  5:14am markr:

Glad you're enjoying, Ajay. It was a shame all the brilliant music I had to leave out. I'm thinking of locking myself in here and taking over the station for the day and going wall-to-wall Coltrane. (It would be my last show at FMU, but I'd get my 15 minutes at least.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15am Guido from Cologne:

Trane's funeral:
... also featuriung Ornette Coleman
  5:18am markr:

Wow, thanks for the link, Guido. I'm learning a lot today. FMU listeners are the best-informed, most discriminating, most intelligent listeners on the planet.
  5:18am markr:

(Also the most photogenic)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19am Guido from Cologne:

thre is even a photo of the service:
  5:21am markr:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22am Guido from Cologne:

Without Trane's intercession Ayler never would have survived in impulse!'s rooster. The master praised Albert's technique. (That's what I learned from the documentary that came out some 10 years ago.)
Avatar 5:38am Sem Chumbo:

Favouriting this show for future listening, Mark.
And if you do lock yourself in today, I'll undertake to get you food.
Vegan OK?
  5:39am markr:

Perfect, Sem. I am feeling a bit peckish. But the Pidge is already here, and I enjoy his morning show so much, I'm going to step aside as prescribed.
  5:46am Josh:

is the web stream down or is my internet being daft?
Avatar 5:47am Scraps:

Mine too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47am Guido from Cologne:

Avatar 5:47am sispus:

same here, silence
  5:50am Georgie B:

plenty of Coltrane this morning
  5:57am markr:

Thanks for tuning in this morning--sorry for the technical hang-ups on that last record, I get another chance to get it right next week!
  5:58am Vincent Nifigance:

Thanks Mark, great show!
Avatar 6:00am duke:

Great show!
