With billows and blasts from choirs and orchesters
Buskers and talkers
Big bands and squawkers,
the Stork Club has retained its qualities of decaying elegance and dwindling significance since the late 1950s.

Hi people!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm Doug Schulkind:

Hey Stork, er Wolfgang, I emailed you an answer about adding the title. With pictures!
Avatar 12:24pm Wolfgang:

Thanks Dougles. Will check directly. Hey, y'all, check out the obit for Ginger Baker in today's N Times, written by my pal, Peter Keepnews

Excellent obit, thanks "Wolfgang". Unsentimental and covers every base.

Hello, Stock, clubbers, deathwish baby seals, and all.
  12:54pm Dean:

Peter is Mr. Irene Trudel, is he not? And son of Orrin K., who lived in my neck of the woods prior to his demise. Quite a family.
  12:58pm melinda:

@Dean yes
  1:00pm melinda:

I liked the obit too.

There's a bit of a Ginger Baker fest on today's Guardian website, in case anyone is interested.

@Dean - yup on all counts

Hello clubbers!
Avatar 1:12pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Charlie Haden did the Ginger Baker Trio with Bill Frisell too
...which I love & have never been able to interest anyone else in...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12pm Doug Schulkind:

That Charlie Haden always makes me weep. Pretty much any Charlie Haden makes me weep. His art was so so so gorgeous.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17pm listener james from westwood:

Anyone who naysayed (naysaid?) Perhacs back in the day is bad and they should feel bad.
Avatar 1:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Charlie grew up in his family's Midwestern County radio show
...one of those artists with rich diverse roots & ressonances....
Avatar 1:23pm northguineahills:

*leaves the room, misses Linda Pehacs, cries in the corner....*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm fred:

There's a composer at work who sometimes shows up in a Charlie Haden T-shirt
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm doctorjazz:

Haden started out singing country music with his family group, comes my it honestly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm doctorjazz:

Going Back Home, Baker, Frisell, Haden, great stuff, can't figure why no one would be interested, RR3.
  1:50pm melinda:

It’s the Techtonic theme music, disorienting but cool to hear the rest of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm listener james from westwood:

@melinda: Stork will return with a description of our ongoing machine-orchestrated dystopia shortly.
Avatar 1:53pm northguineahills:

and Haden's daughter does (unclassifiable) country-indie-art-rock... (whoops, I sort of classified that, lo siento, Petra.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm doctorjazz:

Big Petra fan, her multi tracked accapella recordings are amazing!
Avatar 1:58pm northguineahills:

The last time I saw Quintron, the concert venue house's sewage pipe burst and flowed into the street, it was that good of a show!
Avatar 2:08pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...brief interrupt in webz access...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm Andrew Waterloo:

I just described the 5000 Fingers of Doctor T to my daughter, she gave me that WTF look
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm fred:

The last time I saw Quintron was disappointing, the stage was too high for him to connect. That setup worked for Circle, but not for Quintron
Avatar 2:27pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I suppose you could do a class on what influenced Brazilian things like Bossa & what influence they had & around & around...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32pm fred:

I don't get Bossa. That and Reggae are my most prominent blind spots, apart from the one I can't see
Avatar 2:32pm northguineahills:

Yip Yips!
Avatar 2:33pm northguineahills:

What about Bossa Nova, fred?

(reggae, I can never hear enough...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm fred:

I don't know, I guess both are too positive for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm fred:

Who knows how this works? I got in trouble at work for liking Lea Bertucci's set. One of my many bosses didn't, and I didn't show up when he played, so there will be payback
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm coelacanth∅:

lots of good reggae isn't so pollyannish.
the gladiators; wailing souls; Linton Kwesi Johnson; Peter Tosh.....
(on the other hand, most of the crap coming from jamaica now called reggae is not reggae at all)
Avatar 2:50pm northguineahills:

@fred: what about sufferas (reggae)? (the genre, nothing too sunshiney about that!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm fred:

@ngh: never heard of it! Any recommendations?
Avatar 2:51pm northguineahills:

if you want something bleak, what about Cambodian death metal? (youuboob imbedded) www.bbc.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm coelacanth∅:

ngh is "sufferas" a sub-genre of "rocksteady", which is a sub-genre of reggae?!
Avatar 2:54pm northguineahills:

yes, coel! sufferas is about the plight of the poverty stricken African diaspora w/ a rasta bent.

Thanks Stork, Hope to hear ya soon!

Nice 5-52s a cappela!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm Doug Schulkind:

Yay, Dave Soldier, yay!
Avatar 2:55pm northguineahills:

@fred: start w/ the Abyssinians, or the Congos….
Avatar 2:56pm northguineahills:

It's Dougg!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm coelacanth∅:

the one thing i can say, being a long-time listener and lover of reggae with little knowledge of the details of genres and such, is that (with exceptions of course) most of the best reggae happened long ago and is fanatically religious. (that last phrase redundant?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:59pm coelacanth∅:

beautiful! i've never heard this version
Avatar 2:59pm Wolfgang:

Hey everybody - thanks so much for the wonderful comments and info! You're teaching this little DJ plenty!! Come back next week, wontcha!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Stork!

hey fred just in case you might take the artists i mentioned as recommendations the gladiators and the wailing souls were a bit all over the place so i couldn't say just any of those. definitely the earlier stuff is better though.
