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.

Oh Danny Boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03pm Matt from New Orleans:

Hey Danny & everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm Little Danny:

@Michael: love winter hours, cold weather, and anything else that might drive me inside
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm Matt from New Orleans:

The crazy summer heat doesn’t do that as well Danny
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm Doug Schulkind:

Yay! My show for tomorrow is all done, so I can lay back and Cool Flame out!
Avatar 10:06pm still b/p:

Here for the CBF oil. Therapeutic, anxiety-reducing, possibly with neuro-protective benefits.
  10:07pm JakeGould:

You like the dank and dark winter?

greetings Danny and all

This music ♫ is hitting the spot
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm Little Danny:

Matt, doc, still b/p (thank you!!!), coel. Y'all the best.

hey hey the party people are heeeere! Hi Little Danny and folx!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm Little Danny:

@Doug: oh hell yes you did! Delighted. Contrails is a Pittsburgh group btw
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Little Danny:

Hey hey hey GST there you are!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm doctorjazz:

Just got my copy of Dave Sewelson's CD, named (what else?) Music for a Free World! Probably won't get to listen to it for a few days, though...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm ParUbi:

Hey everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm WR:

Sounds just like venus in furs doesn't it. Hi all.
  10:19pm Dean:

Coffee shop a few blocks from my place plays a wide variety of good musics in the mornings. Recently, Korla Pandit and what sounded like a Japanese opera (No? I don't know.). It's punctuated occasionally with Bon Jovi, Brotzmann, Verdi...always a surprise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm doctorjazz:

What is Trance #1 like (feels a bit jarring for a trance, more like coming our of one...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm Little Danny:

Hi ParUbi! Hi WR! (It sure does!) Dean my dude. What sorta crazy beatnik coffeehouses you hangin' out at?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Doug Schulkind:

Jack Stanizzo of the Contrails is still playing around town.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Little Danny:

@doc: #1 is basically the same concept.
  10:26pm Dean:

Beatnik ain't half the story. It's called Coffe Conscious. They have live music, weird art, books... It's close by and the coffee is good.
  10:26pm Dean:

^Coffee
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm chresti:

Sounds familiar, Dean, on San Pablo?
  10:37pm Dean:

Nope. Gilman.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm Franco Twinkie:

We were just in a coffee house on Potrero Hill with Granny, but we were the only beatniks in there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Matt from New Orleans:

I got to see Dr Ralph a number of times in his later years. He was fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm melinda:

hi all
  10:40pm chresti ->SF:

Near 4th st @ Dean?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm Franco Twinkie:

Chresti informs me that the place was full of beatniks, but I was focused on my donut.
  10:43pm Dean:

Gilman at Neilson...not far from Lalime's.

My wife now works at the Potrero branch of the San Francisco Public Library.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46pm Franco Twinkie:

I had a conversation with Korla Pandit about his preference in Hammond organ speakers - Gibson, not Leslie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Little Danny:

Melinda, hi!

And hi Franco!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Little Danny:

@Franco: Of course you talked to Korla Pandit. What was his vibe like?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm Little Danny:

Our youngest cat just turned my mic on
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Little Danny:

@Matt: I don't I'd realized he was a doctor!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm melinda:

I'm picturing kitty doing a lounge act
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm Franco Twinkie:

Korla was a real nice guy, as far as I could tell. At the time I was unaware of his true racial identity, I took photos of him playing from behind the stage.
  10:55pm chresti ->SF:

Betty sounding kind of like Smokey
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm Little Danny:

@Melinda: she wishes! She's all over my soundboard when I do this show. Just an added element of excitement.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm Matt from New Orleans:

It was a nickname that caught on in the mid to late 70s
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm Matt from New Orleans:

I believe he got an honorary doctorate from some college/university
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm Matt from New Orleans:

I first remember seeing him in upstate NY when I was five or six and I was fascinated by his banjo playing. I couldn’t decide who I liked better as a child Dr Ralph or Earl Scruggs. They were both forces of nature. Nowadays I’m a Bela Fleck man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm Franco Twinkie:

We have been devouring a pizza from The Mill on Divisadero while we are listening to this three in a row this minor key surftastic mood piece.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm Little Danny:

"Forces of nature" is definitely a good way to describe the Stanleys in general...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm Matt from New Orleans:

That’s some pricey pizza Franco
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm Little Danny:

Oof man I really need to upgrade this Johnny Griffin. Quiet jazz records aren't well-served by surface noise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm JtotheK:

Arriving in time for Ferrante (AND Teicher!) - hi everyone. Seasonal Greetings to you all - and welcome back Danny!
  11:23pm chresti ->SF:

Matt-that’s artisanal sf pizza for ya, (it was delicious
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm Little Danny:

Thank you Jason!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm Matt from New Orleans:

Griffin tenor
  11:32pm Ignore Function:

I've been pronouncing Teicher wrong all these years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm Little Danny:

Ya know Ignore F. that your pronunciation may be the correct one. I think Evan of the Explorer's Room pronounces it "Tie-sher"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm WR:

Do you have the dvd + cd release of Tomorrow Come Someday, and if yes, how is the movie?
  11:40pm Ignore Function:

That's how I've heard it the very few times I've heard it pronounced.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm Little Danny:

Heya WR, like a lot of the soundtrack music I play, I have not unfortunately seen the accompanying movie. Novice moves over here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42pm Little Danny:

I feel like it's the sort of movie that would pop up on Youtube for a coupla months at a time...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45pm JtotheK:

Speaking of novice moves & movies, I'm /finally/ getting around to watching Sid Lumet's take on Orient Express. But because I start movies so late I end up falling asleep and it takes days to watch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48pm Matt from New Orleans:

It’s pretty good Jason. Great cast sort of squandered.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm JtotheK:

And next up in my movie to watch queue is The Breaking Point from 1950.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm Little Danny:

Thanks Matt, I musta been confusing Griffin with some other player
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52pm Matt from New Orleans:

Jason the only breaking point I’ve seen is a garbage mafia related film with Bo Swenson directed by Bob Clark(A Christmas Story)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm JtotheK:

I haven't seen that one ... this Breaking Point is based on Ernie Hemingway 'To Have and Have Not' -- and I've not seen the Bogart/Bacall version of 'To Have . . . '
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm Matt from New Orleans:

I remembered the movie Jason. Solid studio film. I was writing much the same but deleted it now that I saw your reply.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm fleep:

Thanks, LD!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm Matt from New Orleans:

It’s much closer to the Hemingway than the Bogie Bacall version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59pm Matt from New Orleans:

Thanks Danny. Have a great night everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00am Franco Twinkie:

Thanks Danny. No more holiday nonsense, back on track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00am coelacanth∅:

Thanks Danny

tchau
  12:01am Ignore Function:

Great show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:01am WR:

Good night all. Enjoyed the show LD. Onward.
  12:01am chresti ->SF:
