Wikipedia listing for that Henderson album says that Blue Bossa was written by Kenny Dorham who was on trumpet. Just trying to help here and avoid doing work.

this is strangely relaxing, like a massage
Avatar 8:23pm Kurt Gottschalk:

hey granny, lay back and enjoy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm chresti:

I knew there was something to celebrate today..
Avatar 8:35pm coelacanth∅))):

i love this set especially!
Avatar 8:36pm Kurt Gottschalk:

sit tight, coel. i'll see if i can't ruin it.
Avatar 8:36pm coelacanth∅))):

and sunn o))) is the kind of thing i can easily go to sleep with. very soothing.
Avatar 8:37pm coelacanth∅))):

Kurt -i'll wait...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

this track is the bubble bath
Avatar 8:40pm coelacanth∅))):

heartily derivitive of early king crimson. no complaints.
Avatar 8:42pm coelacanth∅))):

(or would it be "2nd era" crimson?)))
Avatar 8:46pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i don't know the kc eras so well. kinda reminds me of henry cow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm redkayak:

Good evening all :)
Avatar 9:01pm coelacanth∅))):

and i don't know Henry Cow well. 'don't know why not; i've definitely heard it/him more than once on wfmu.
...that track was specifically influenced by "fracture" on starless and bible black. sometimes called the "Bill Bruford era".
Avatar 9:01pm Kurt Gottschalk:

hiya, red!
Avatar 9:02pm coelacanth∅))):

(((...Henry Cow now bookmarked)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:02pm redkayak:

@Kurt - Ahoy captain!
  9:04pm Dean:

Red? Crimson w/ Bruford? What'd I miss?
Avatar 9:05pm coelacanth∅))):

my favorite Chopin composition this is
Avatar 9:06pm coelacanth∅))):

Nikel, Dean. Astounding Sounds; Amazing Music.
  9:08pm Dean:

Ah, Wertmuller, whose work with Brotzmann fairly amazed me in Berkeley c. 2005. Full Blast at a tiny store front venue. Awesome.

Avatar 9:11pm coelacanth∅))):

good catch but no. the nikel track was, i'll say beyond "influenced by" king crimson. still it was it's own -and astounding, amazing.
Avatar 9:13pm Franco Twinkie:

Hello Kurt and assorted holiday shoppers.
Avatar 9:13pm Kurt Gottschalk:

wertmuller is also in a remarkable band called steamboat switzerland. not sure if they're still active, tho.
Avatar 9:13pm coelacanth∅))):

...many elements of fracture and maybe starless and some others, but still it's own thing.
Avatar 9:16pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean, are you guys getting pounded at the moment? We're waiting for the deluge to kick in.
Avatar 9:20pm coelacanth∅))):

Dean you got here just in time!
  9:21pm Dean:

Almost pounded, mostly heavy wind. Colder than usual, so of course the residents complain as if it were a deep freeze.

Will have to sample Nikel. Steamboat Switzerland didn't strike me at first. Might have to try again. Will have to mute for Talking Heads.
Avatar 9:22pm coelacanth∅))):

hey is anyone else getting distortion?
Avatar 9:23pm Kurt Gottschalk:

coel, is it bad? consistent?
Avatar 9:23pm Franco Twinkie:

Oh I forgot, yo're non-plussed by weather.
Avatar 9:23pm Kurt Gottschalk:

that talking heads record was sounding weird in the studio, too.
Avatar 9:24pm coelacanth∅))):

just during the singing here, but i noticed it earlier during louder/ higher-end frequencies (i forget which tracks)
Avatar 9:24pm coelacanth∅))):

...not getting it on the Bowie
Avatar 9:25pm Franco Twinkie:

Sounded normal to me.
Avatar 9:25pm coelacanth∅))):

okay -maybe i'm imagining it occurred earlier too!
Avatar 9:29pm Franco Twinkie:

A truly great record by a truly great band.
Avatar 9:34pm coelacanth∅))):

holy crap!
i'm busy in the kitchen cleaning cameras but had to come in here to say
Holy Crap!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm WR:

Kurt, I'm a bit confused, I thought you had a regular program time but appears that this summer when I started listening to WFMU regularly you did several weeks of this Tuesday time slot. So no regular time slot for Miniature Minotaur?
Avatar 9:36pm coelacanth∅))):

never heard of this album. what the hell.
Avatar 9:37pm coelacanth∅))):

and Franco, yes. even with the help of nirvana meat puppets don't get appreciated by enough people
  9:39pm Dean:

Never thought much of Graham Parker back in the day. These days I really enjoy him.
Avatar 9:40pm Franco Twinkie:

The Meat Puppets evolution and transformation was a marvelous thing to observe in real time.
  9:41pm Dean:

Still, my favorite MP record is their first single.
Avatar 9:47pm Kurt Gottschalk:

wr, yeah, no current slot for ol' kurt
Avatar 9:47pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean I have it right here, but I must respectfully disagree. They were okay as a chaos band, but when they became psychedelic rangers, they left their former selves in the dust.
Avatar 9:49pm coelacanth∅))):

i'm still a sucker for meat puppets II...and shamefully admit that i completely lost track of them after too high to die
  9:50pm Dean:

Yeah, I don't like most of the admired '80s bands, thanks to Steely Dan, whose success permitted cerebral approaches to pop that linger to this day. (Thrill Jockey tends to be so miserably bland.)
Avatar 9:52pm Franco Twinkie:

Magic Toy Missing. They dropped the pretense of been a mutant punk rock band and bloomed into hard ass desert rockers.
Avatar 9:55pm northguineahills:

Thanks Kurt!
Avatar 9:59pm Franco Twinkie:

I agree! I agree!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00pm chresti:

Thank you Kurt!
Avatar 10:00pm coelacanth∅))):

Thanks Kurdt!
Avatar 10:01pm coelacanth∅))):

p.s. i'm still waiting for you to ruin it!
