Hi Sam, hey everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm coelacanth∅:

Sam you tricky one and here i was wondering why my production was down
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03pm WR:

Using the wooof moo android app. Still learning the interface, but liking it so far. Anyway, saying hi and now off to do end of day chores, dishes, cat litter, recycle sorting, garbage out, etc. All to a soundtrack designed by Sam and his horse.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm Sam Segal:

Greetings, ParUbi and WR!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm ParUbi:

Is the wind moving or is the windmill moving. Wait, how does it go? Some kind of Zen thing...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm chresti:

Hi Sam and horse estates!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm Sam Segal:

Horse, Chresti!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm doctorjazz:

Too many to pay tribute to. Crap!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm ParUbi:

It's some dark storm. Damned uncanny.
  10:12pm Dean:

Can we get some Ellis Marsalis, too? If not, it's okay. I'll do another local tribute.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm Sam Segal:

Truly, Doc. Feels almost unbearably sad to play three great musicians lost in one week back-to-back.
  10:13pm Dean:

Four, goddammit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Sam Segal:

I didn't program any Ellis Marsalis because I didn't know his music very well. Got any recommendations of stuff I should check out, Dean?
  10:14pm Dean:

Heart of Gold is a good solo album. Dark Keys is with Branford, a trio, and another is just the two of them. HoG is really lovely, standards.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm doctorjazz:

Ellis Marsalis would be nice, hasn't gotten much attention.
  10:17pm Dean:

Loved Ones is the one with Branford.
  10:21pm Dean:

Twelve's It is a trio with his son Jason on drums. Can't recall how it sounds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm ParUbi:

I have to confess that I really didn't know much of his work until this happened
  10:22pm Dean:

I first learned of Prine from ... of course! ... those great Atlantic Records sleeves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm doctorjazz:

Don't know a ton off his music (did see him in a trio in New Orleans), but like Fathers and Sons...the 1st half (5 tracks) was Ellis, with Wynton and Branford).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm WR:

Great Ellis Marsalis www.discogs.com...
  10:22pm Dean:

Branford's live record from Bloomington, dubbed "Bloomington," is one helluva great set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm ParUbi:

I am much more familiar with this outfit
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm Franco Twinkie:

This is the first I heard about Hal. Very sad. Chresti and myself showed up late at a party, and the someone pointed to Hal across the room. I wracked my brain for something intelligent to say to him, but was drawing a blank, so I let it go. At least I saw him eating a cracker with something smeared on it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm coelacanth∅:

my first girlfriend ("as an adult"...rest in peace also) turned me onto John Prine. first song i heard, when i was 17, was "hello in there".
not familiar with Hal Willner, Wallace Roney or Ellis Marsalis
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Sam Segal:

I wouldn't have known what to say to Hal Willner either, Franco. I think I first became aware of him when he did a satellite radio program with Lou Reed. Ornette's "Lonely Woman" was the theme. Might have been the first place I encountered that song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm ParUbi:

I bet "not knowing what to say" is a two-way street
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Franco Twinkie:

The thing about talking to accomplished people, is they already know everything about the topic of themselves, so you better have a good angle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm ParUbi:

I also bet that's the last subject they want to talk about
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm ParUbi:

But, then again, that's a pretty big elephant in the room
  10:43pm Dean:

No. Experts are as diverse as schmoes like me. Some of them claim their territory vigorously, probably because they're afraid of a contest. Others so adore the topic that they enjoy carrying on a real conversation -- not just a condescending lecture -- with genuinely interested or appreciative folks, even if it won't bolster their expertise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm ParUbi:

But that's two different topics: themselves and what they love. If they're the same, you're screwed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Doug Schulkind:

No accomplished person worth their own snot actually thinks or acts like they already know everything about their field of expertise. Believe me, I know everything there is to know about this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Franco Twinkie:

For years I worked in the film business around celebrities high and low. On set, it was a DMZ and could be quite relaxed,even jokey. But off stage the fence went back up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm coelacanth∅:

haha Doug
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm ParUbi:

Fame has got to be surreal. Everyone wants to be friends with your larger than life image.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm chresti:

Haha Doug.
  10:55pm Dean:

You're only screwed to the extent that recognizing--or announcing--their messed-up relationship to their work somehow costs you something. That something might be a job or an invitation to a party.

My point is that there are plenty of real experts whose expertise is motivated by an intellectual curiosity that won't automatically dismiss inquiry by non-experts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Franco Twinkie:

When I worked in Hollywood, I would laugh how I spent my days rubbing elbows with famous people, but my nights were spent in a filthy dump by myself.
  11:00pm Dean:

Welcome to the United States of America, Franco.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm Sam Segal:

I can confirm that Doug is the Sublime Prince of All Human Knowledge.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01pm doctorjazz:

We had a virtual Seder, Zoom app (a Zeder people have taken to calling it). Not quite the real thing, family in the room (and three Orthodox side of the family couldn't participate at all), but, hey, for the current situation, pretty nice.
  11:02pm Dean:

The Sublime Prince has no clothes!

Wait, let me check.

Doug, what are you wearing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm Sam Segal:

Was there a virtual afikomen, Doc?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm Sam Segal:

A Zoom Bombing from Elijah, perhaps?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm doctorjazz:

Very cautious opening the door for Elijah, gotta say...
Avatar 11:06pm Hams:

can't say i've ever heard any numbers from this album on the radio. good to hear, sam.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm Sam Segal:

Thanks, Ham! I feel like Street Legal is a pretty underappreciated moment in Dylan's 70s discography.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm doctorjazz:

Cool Dylan, haven't paid much attention to his stuff after Blood on the Tracks, liked that.
  11:09pm Dean:

Was working in a record store when Street Legal arrived. Took a while to learn to enjoy it.
  11:10pm Dean:

Same for Slow Train Coming.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm Sam Segal:

Anyone listen to Dylan's new 17-minute JFK track?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm Sam Segal:

JFK assassination track, I meant to say.
Avatar 11:10pm Hams:

ah, one of my favorites. always thought the sound of LEGAL was somewhat strange. like recorded live but just real quick in a studio.
  11:12pm Dean:

No, Sam, but if you hum a few bars I'll fake it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm Franco Twinkie:

Sam, would you summarize before I google it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm Sam Segal:

Haha, it's called "A Murder Most Foul." Promises to be my next go-to at karaoke when social distancing ends.
  11:13pm Dean:

Ken played a parody of it today.
  11:14pm Dean:

Suffice to say the parody was about chickens.
Avatar 11:14pm Hams:

yeah, a lot of name dropping on it. i appreciated it. it's like one of those open-ended van morrison tracks, meandering & all. don't know if wfmu's debuted it yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16pm Sam Segal:

Tough to sum up. I actually like it quite a bit. Its a rambling history of popular culture/subculture from 1963 on. Hell, maybe I'll play it two years from now.
  11:17pm Dean:

If you're taking requests, I'd like to hear Alan Hull's "One More Bottle of Wine."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm Franco Twinkie:

A friends dad was the first FBI agent on the scene the night it happened. When I met him at a party, I kind of hemmed and hawed around the subject, but I had to know. Man! he got right into it while we were stuffing potato salad in our mouths.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm Sam Segal:

I actually don't know that tune, Dean.
  11:20pm Dean:

From his Squire album. Not to be missed.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZH83v9kALQ
  11:21pm Dean:

"We can but only try in small ways..."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm Sam Segal:

@Franco, any forensic details we should be made aware that you gleaned from that conversation?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm Franco Twinkie:

Strangely, I have forgotten every thing he said.
  11:30pm ?:

Was getting kind of squirrels sleeping in the park. Figured. Then showed up hear.
Nothing stops a party barge except this.

Perfect time to catch some
  11:31pm Chris Farrell:

Forgot my name
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm Sam Segal:

"Father drove a steamroller, mama was a crossing guard..." Hello, Chris!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm WR:

That Abrams cut was good. Need to go check the shelf to see if I have the CD of that one.
  11:35pm Chris Farrell:

Pity about John Prine. Glad he got a album out recently and I got to hear of John Prine before he died so I knew he was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm Sam Segal:

@WR: That Abrams album has an excellent electronic piece, which I played several weeks back on the show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm doctorjazz:

Prine played in Brooklyn, King's Theater, a year or so ago. I had thought of getting tickets, but didn't, kicking myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm WR:

And I thank you for making me aware of it. I bought about 8 Black Saint CD box sets a few years ago for fairly cheap from Amazon. Getting so many at once didn't dive into them very much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm Sam Segal:

That "Tree of Forgiveness" record really is a treasure.
  11:41pm Chris Farrell:

Information is key for everything.

I one time requested New Grass Revival and New Riders of Purple Sage play a blue grass festival in Minnesota. I thought they were some up and coming blue grass players, they evidentially hadn’t been really relevant since the 1980s.

The festival was later named “revival” and I attributed that partly to my request. Similar to a man peeing in the ocean thinking “every little bit helps”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43pm coelacanth∅:

Franco then you probably don't remember that clicky thing they did after the conversation, when you suddenly found yourself in a different location.
  11:46pm Chris Farrell:

“Course those things are real, Drill Bit Taylor didn’t make itself”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm doctorjazz:

Saw Muhal Richard Abrams with a big band in some long gone Village jaunt, playing Blues Forever, great set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48pm Sam Segal:

I saw him twice with the Made in Chicago group (Henry Threadgill, Jack DeJohnette, Roscoe Mitchell, and Larry Gray)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm coelacanth∅:

isn't there a wfmu show host that has Muhal Richard Abrams music as mic bed?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm WR:

I like the new Dylan track. A portrait of the 60s with assassination as a significant inflection. No hidden meaning, a portrait from his POV for others entertainment, yes it is primarily an entertainment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm doctorjazz:

Cool band, Sam!
  11:50pm Dean:

I bet you're thinking of Jeff Golick, whose opening tune is from Roscoe Mitchell. Could be wrong, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm coelacanth∅:

yes you're wrong.
we should've bet.
  11:51pm Dean:

Well it ain't Ken!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53pm coelacanth∅:

Scott McDowell?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54pm coelacanth∅:

yeah i think it's that Amazing opening track he's used for years
...but rarely fills it in on the playlist
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm coelacanth∅:

shit, no -that's Grachan Moncur
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm doctorjazz:

Crap, you played Randy Newman, my first thought was, "not him too"!
Thanks, Sam, great show. Night all!
  11:58pm Dean:

Randy Newman and Alan Hull are not t-h-a-t disparate as songwriters go. Check out "One More Bottle of Wine."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm doctorjazz:

I can heart that Moncur track in my head, now that you mention it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59pm doctorjazz:

Have that Alan Hull open in my YouTube app for later, Dean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00am chresti:

Thanks Sam! Night everyone!
  12:00am Dean:

Nice. And then there's Lindisfarne.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:01am coelacanth∅:

yeah doc that's an amazing piece
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:01am doctorjazz:

My daughter liked the Dora, asked Siri what it was, no chance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02am coelacanth∅:

Thanks Sam take care everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02am Franco Twinkie:

Thanks Sam.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02am coelacanth∅:
