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.

In my customized Barcalounger. Have at it, David, Ruth and Ridgewood folk, ready for anything.

Can't evolve fast enough!

hello! when is he breathing?
Avatar 3:12pm david w:

Michael is evolving and Sem devolving and geez has a ticket to ride!
Avatar 3:13pm david w:

steveo! I think he was one of the earliest masters of circular breathing, kinda magical.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm steveo:

yeah wow
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm doctorjazz:

Great recording this Torikai. Wasn't Trane already quite adept at circular breathing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm steveo:

i would imagine playing and breathing like this has a meditative quality -- continually focusing on the breath
Avatar 3:24pm geezerette:

steveo, reminds me of haroh Sanders.
Avatar 3:24pm david w:

And Steve Lacy. But they all used it for different effects.

Wild and right up my alley!
Avatar 3:31pm david w:

This is definitely doctorjazz territory.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm Michael 98145:

whoa. Roulette's been around for 40 years? bravo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm listener james from westwood:

Been in since the git-go via the magic of the mobile app but happy to hear it on the big speakers now at home!
Avatar 3:40pm david w:

Ah, James! The big speakers will come in handy for the second half for sure!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm Doug Schulkind:

Hi, David! Ho, Ruth! Hee-haw, ridgewoodians!
Avatar 4:02pm weinstein:

Doug! There is a rumor that you are coming to NYC! And Ruth says hi!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm Doug Schulkind:

There was once an ugly rumor. Then he moved out and we rented the space to someone much more optically appealing.
Avatar 4:14pm geezerette:

That was so beautiful!
Avatar 4:21pm geezerette:

That song really jarred me when I first saw the movie. It's a cocaine reference, the gong thing. Carmichael's tune and voice are so beautiful that the lyrics are like screeching brakes.
Avatar 4:24pm weinstein:

Bang the Buddha's Gong is code for an opium session.
Avatar 4:26pm geezerette:

Oh, that makes more sense.
Avatar 4:29pm northguineahills:

Crap, missed a lot, glad I got here for MEV.
Avatar 4:34pm david w:

Hey ngh.... jumping from 1967 to 2017 with these two.
Avatar 4:35pm northguineahills:

Wait, Jeremy was in my band, and I played w/ Dok (who then allowed me to crash at his place as I was going through a rough time). I had no instruments, just my sampler and whatever he threw in front of me, fun show!
Avatar 4:38pm david w:

Dok records everything. Maybe there's a tape?
Avatar 4:38pm geezerette:

Love this piece.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm steveo:

thanks for the inspiration; got to head out early today...ciao
Avatar 4:39pm geezerette:

NGH, glad you're safe and dry.

seeya steveo, always a pleasure.

Thanks, enjoyed, gotta run

best to you djazz
Avatar 4:44pm david w:

geezerette, I always imagine you drawing when these atmospheric tracks are playing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm chresti:

It is good drawing music
Avatar 4:48pm david w:

Hey, chresti! I think FMU has been the soundtrack to the creation of half the art out of NYC in the last decades. And now globally!
Avatar 4:48pm geezerette:

David, I am!

Chresti, it's perfect!
Avatar 4:50pm geezerette:

Definitely a factor on the west coast. :)
Lots of painters as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm chresti:

Yes! Music has been a constant painting and drawing partner for me!
Avatar 4:56pm Sem:

Eyes closed throughout, what a movie the show was a soundtrack to. Thank you for the ride. See you, David, and all, here again. Inevitable.
Avatar 4:57pm david w:

Thanks to all who have pledged! Ridgewood has a respectable showing at this early date. I value the love as much as the cash, but that's a longer story....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm Stanley:

I have to say this is excellent stuff.
My kind of thing.
Avatar 4:58pm david w:

Thanks, Sem, Stanley, and all!
Avatar 4:58pm geezerette:

Thanks, David and Ruth! Moon Base Tranquility.
