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.

I was introduced to his oeuvre in Music Humanities at Columbia about 1972.

Supposedly one of the piano movers clapped Gould on the back a bit too hard. He sued.
Avatar 1:01pm Sem:

The quotes from the maker of Hewitt's piano are, well, splenetic. Understandably,
  1:02pm Dean:

Wait...movers dropped Gould's piano? Or Gould himself?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm fred:

@Dean: I heard about that. Tragic, but nowhere near as infuriating as the TSA breaking apart Ballake Sissoko's kora. At least the movers didn't destroy the instrument intentionally

This rendition of "I'll Never Smile Again" reminds me of what a beautiful, sentimental style of playing Errol Garner had.
  1:03pm Dean:

I imagine that produced a groan from Gould.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm coelacanth∅:

i'm just wondering how to drop a piano to break the iron frame? did they drop it from a truck? down some stairs?

rest in peace, piano.
Avatar 1:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

88 strings in high tension does make for interesting physics.
  1:15pm Dean:

Maybe Ms. Hewitt has a large flight of steps leading up to her home.

(much more than 88 strings)
  1:21pm Listener Robert:

Sorry, I didn't get the joke, Ludwig. Guess I'd've had to be immersed in the source material.

What the heck, I'm the only one who gets "Lost", and then only because I was a friend of its maker.

You really got to hand it to Mike Bloomfield's business manager. Making a billion off merely above average guitar skills is pretty damn impressive.
Avatar 1:24pm Wolfgang:

Oh, yeah - forgot to comment on Hewitt's piano tragedy. It's what made me think of her to play tonight! Oh, well.
  1:24pm Listener Robert:

It's like how we got the jokes of the Schickele LP put on by our Music Hum prof only because he'd been playing for us the baroque material being parodied.

I'm always happy to groove to the Butterfield debut album...
Avatar 1:30pm Sem:

I had the pleasure of taking an old upright from the 1890s apart when a friend bought an old house which had been renovated extensively by the previous owners of some 70 years. So extensively that the piano rooms' door frames, and indeed the rooms on either side of it, had been en-smallened to the point that a simple(!) roll out was out of the question. Learned a great deal about period industrial piano fabrication, and the daunting weight of a cast iron piano frame. To say nothing of the insane number of metal strings of all kinds, and the beautiful joinery of the tuning pegs, and thereby, the enduring mystery of fine tuning a piano.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm coelacanth∅:

maybe instrumental prowess wasn't Mike's forté. there's something though...
- i mean John Lee Hooker wasn't a great guitarist; but he was a Great guitarist.

Sem yeah it's crazy how heavy they are, even a "small" one.
i'm sure those guys thought they had it under control.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm fred:

I was wrong: pulling off a dance show with PDQ Bach would be too difficult. Slapstick would be easy but uninteresting. Something personal would be hijacked by the music. The most likely would be some wisecrack choreographer playing the critics with a dull piece hitting all the right notes. Only terrible outcomes. Please prove me wrong

Enjoying this in particular, and the afternoon in its entirety. Catch you during the Marathon, Stork and clubbers.

And thank you for the great music this afternoon. It's helping me accomplish my task of purging ancient bank statements and insurance forms from my messy office. Still haven't located our marriage certificate, no doubt in the VERY safe place I left it in (which was the original task of the afternoon). Might be time for a nap now...

@fred
You have contributed magnificently, once again, Sir. No apologies accepted!

Bickert was a staple in jazz clubs here in Canada, saw him from the 70s on. Phil Nimmons, Moe Kaufman, that crowd.
