Little Danny's avatar View Little Danny's profile Options

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.

Ever see kids doing the Stroll in 50s TV dance show clips? It's cute/coolish, and only a half-degree away from a mellow bummer stroll.

Oh man, Evan. Thank you

Hey, made it home (really nasty out there in NY/NJ). Could use a bit of flame around now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm chresti:

Avatar 10:17pm Little Danny:

so many "Exodus" covers get a little dramatic for me, but the spare atmospherics of that Upsetters puts it in a rare echelon
Avatar 10:18pm Franco Twinkie:

Chresti's brother gave me a tube amp that has a spring tank and a tremolo cut out switch. It lives on the front porch. For fun I jack in a Califone classroom record player and play surf records and such. Who the hell needs a Technics?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm chresti:

this makes me think of 'Havana Moon"
Avatar 10:19pm still b/p:

I need a bar 'round here to adopt and bestow on patrons such a playlist as this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19pm doctorjazz:

Did the Upsetters cover as well. Warning my tootsies with these cool sounds!
Avatar 10:19pm Little Danny:

Docjazz! You're unfashionably early and I am delighted
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm chresti:

I like the slow fat man version
Avatar 10:22pm Little Danny:

Ohhh, that was a slow version?! It's the only one I know, tho I'm a complete Jamaican music novice

Still b/p! You're here and I haven't kissed your cheeks yet. RUDE

well, I fell through the soundlight, I'll clean up and pay for the damages.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm chresti:

Danny this set has being totally together!
Avatar 10:30pm Little Danny:

@chresti: looking at the label, "Fat Man" was credited to Derrick Morgan. Also I believe it was a hit for him, which has a way of spawning lotsa covers in its wake
Avatar 10:30pm Little Danny:

Melinda. Chresti. Thank you both. I'm glad!
Avatar 10:31pm Flash Strap:

Damn this East is incredible
Avatar 10:31pm Little Danny:

It's a great album overall, quite obscure to my knowledge
Avatar 10:32pm Flash Strap:

i've never heard of it until now
  10:33pm Doug Schulkind:

This stunnner and a revelation. Wow.
  10:33pm zonk ludlow:

Love this D.B. Shrier Quartet piece Danny. When it goes sparse it somewhat reminds me of The Necks. If you are not familiar with them they are worth tracking down, one of Australia's best exports.
Avatar 10:34pm northguineahills:

The Necks are amazing!!!!

A man of good taste NGH. Have you had the privilege of seeing them live?
Avatar 10:38pm northguineahills:

Just about 3pm in Ozland. In EST o'er here in FLA.

@zonk: Yes! a few times in NYC. Different sound every time. (sort of like NL's "The Ex".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm doctorjazz:

Don't know either the Media or Shrier, did enjoy the Shrier track.
Avatar 10:41pm northguineahills:

@doctorjazz: yeah, Shrier Quartet was new to me too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm doctorjazz:

...The Necks, not the media, having my usual spell correct problems.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm melinda:

I like the Upsetter's sleeve. The graphic style reminds me of the menus and place mats at a steakhouse chain from childhood.

  10:47pm zonk ludlow:

@doctorjazz, a fine introduction to he Necks is an album called Aquatic, you won't be disappointed.

What a grea alto sound he tried to say.. .

I have many Caribbean "tourist" recs that kill. (and others that are tepid).

OK, will stick my neck out and look for The Necks.

p.s. Finally got some o' that Tord lined up later in this set

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm doctorjazz:

Always dug Chico Hamilton, especially the version with Jim Hall. This is really nice.
Avatar 10:59pm Little Danny:

with ya, Melinda. It's called for at times
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm doctorjazz:

Great stuff, LD!
Avatar 11:01pm Little Danny:

I love Chico's Impulse! work the best; his Pacific Jazz stuff gets a bit too California chamber-jazz for me at times, but there are plenty of highlights from his early catalog ala "Blue Sands"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm doctorjazz:

Was getting itchy for some vibes...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm doctorjazz:

Took a whole hour...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06pm melinda:

Finally really gotta run but LD this show has been a true treat

adios amigos
Avatar 11:07pm Franco Twinkie:

I had this one Chico Hamilton record that had Lowell George playing slide guitar. Late night jazz grease.

I gotta step out, but great show so far. Will definitely listen to the archive.

happy to have you here any time, Ignore F.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm doctorjazz:

Chico Hamilton and Lowell George, sounds like a great one (not a combo I'd think of...)
Avatar 11:10pm Little Danny:

Lowell George, talk about an interesting cat
Avatar 11:11pm Franco Twinkie:

He was! Met him once in Venice. He was real nice.
  11:15pm Dean:

Never met him, but heard Little Feat with LG when they opened for (...am I remembering this correctly?...) ELO at Anaheim. Wish I'd been more attentive at the time.
  11:19pm Dean:

And one of the guys who engineered Waiting for Columbus has a stereo shop four blocks from my place. Therein hangs the original painting that was the album cover.
Avatar 11:21pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean, What where?I love that painting by Neon Park!
  11:21pm Dean:

Sniff...sniff... I catch a whiff of ECM.

(Not a complaint. I love it.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm doctorjazz:

Sharp olfactory impressions, Dean!
  11:23pm Dean:

One block south of San Pablo and Cedar (Kermit Lynch), east side, next to a bicycle shop. Warren Dewey. Check out his discography: https://www.discogs.com/artist/470110-Warren-Dewey He's a great guy.
  11:25pm Dean:

Between the time the painting was used for the cover and recent years NP made revisions, so claims Warren, but I've never compared the two.
Avatar 11:25pm Franco Twinkie:

Will do! Chresti and I will be there in December.
Avatar 11:27pm Franco Twinkie:

Marty(Neon's real name) was a native of Berkeley.
  11:27pm Dean:

Let me know! We'll go out for coffee/beer/LPs/books/what have you.
Avatar 11:29pm geezerette:

Lowell George lived in Topanga, I think.
  11:30pm Dean:

Warren has fun stories about recording the album. And about recording Hendrix, one of his earliest jobs.
