Charles Mingus said jazz was a word invented to separate musicians from their money. Music for a Free World brings us together, drawing listeners to the healing power of smooth free jazz. Each week, surprise guests bring their own sides to spin and their instruments of choice to spontaneously jam.

I wonder why or where its invention was deemed necessary, when it's so similar to the low end of the bassoon family

I am still thinking about that Striing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm doctorjazz:

Love me that low clarinet sound. (My daughter played bass clarinet in her middle school band...it was as big as she was. Unfortunately, she didn't stick with it).
Avatar 2:35pm StringOFperils:

Contra-Bassoons vs contrabass clarinets, Dave....? That's what I'm still thinking about. I'm sure there are obvious timbral and historical reasons for them both to exist....and if I weren't lumbered with tree-pollen, I'd track that down right now. However, snif, ....

I seem to have Paul’s “Jazz Consciousness” in my ever-expanding Tsundoku collection.
Avatar 2:54pm coelacanth∅:

yes from the next room i can hear Paul fine and that's all
  2:54pm Jim:

Whales sound like they are opening the door to a wet inner sanctum. Jim Paul sounds like he's into the inner sanctum.
  2:55pm Rafa Sanchez-Ventura:

Sounds like the whale is saying, "Da-dough"

Baba, how many minutes away until you guys are getting back to watch Frozen 2

two hours and forty five minutes
  2:57pm Ivan:

Awesome to hear you Paul!
Look forward to hit again
Avatar 2:59pm StringOFperils:

I like to think that the whales sing their collective and ongoing oral histories, as they travel the submarine spaceways.
Avatar 3:00pm StringOFperils:

Of which, mapping is a part.
Avatar 3:02pm StringOFperils:

Like aboriginal songlines.

Hey Ivan!
Avatar 3:03pm northguineahills:

Well, most cetaceans have been shown to have a rather variable vocabulary, we just haven't deciphered it yet.

Yeh - you are right, String of Pearls!
