"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Happy it’s Friday! Just took the pup for a long walk before it gets too hot out. How’s it going with you Handy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:11am David (in London):

Hey Handy. Yep, everything OK this end really ta. Is Greenpoint on point?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14am Handy Haversack:

Gin supplies dangerously low here -- cat food, too! Going to have to take care of a couple of things after I knock out a little work.

But we're canoeing this afternoon, so that should be pretty great (though it means missing Sophisticated Boom Boom).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15am WoodsOfNH:

@Handy I will raise a secondary cocktail in your honor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16am David (in London):

And I a tertiary one.
Avatar 9:18am Peter from Dover NJ:

Good morning JA and everyone. Handy, where are you canoeing?

hullo all.

Thank you, friends. With your support, I will weather this storm!

@Peter: East River, from Greenpoint, Brooklyn, to Astoria, Queens, and back!

Happy Canoeing to you, @Handy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21am Marley P. Dogg:

This is some smooth jaZz!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21am sphere:

What brand of gin do you prefer, Handy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22am David (in London):

Hi Jennica.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23am Marley P. Dogg:

I just had botanist gin for the first time - thought it was pretty good
Avatar 9:25am Jennica:

@David (iL): Hi! Hope you are doing something fun today/this w/e.
@Marley: better than Hendrick's?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26am Handy Haversack:

@sphere: the one in the largest bottle these days!

I usually go for Beefeater as a standard gin, but our local liquor store does not carry it in handles. So we have Bell Ringer. Quarantini conditions demand quantity over experimentation, I'm afraid.

Thanks, Jennica!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26am WoodsOfNH:

My most recent gin discovery was Dry Line, from Cape Cod. Really good with some Fevertree tonic.
Avatar 9:27am Jennica:

Does anyone else have their booze delivered? I'm doing booze and grocery delivery on the regular now. Part of me feels lazy, but part of me is very happy to save the time and not have to wear a mask for 2 hours while dodging the increasingly weird GP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30am WoodsOfNH:

I tried using Caskers but their service was a disaster. Thankfully, New Hampshire started curbside pickup.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30am Handy Haversack:

@Jennica, I wouldn't even know how! I have a friend in Edinburgh who found a good liquor-delivery company, and his quarantini game has gone *deep*. But our local doesn't do it. So I have my periodic liquor-store scrambles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31am David (in London):

Jennica - The plan is to do another of the traditional long urban walks, and maybe work on some music. Probably some qigong too. And some boozing. Definately some boozing.

And yourself?

Handy, have fun. Only thing I know about Green Point is the record fair! One of these days, I've got to get a boat. Canoe or kayak, I'm not sure.
Avatar 9:34am Jennica:

Parkour! [no, not parkour] - about to become a little too busy, so don't worry about me if you don't see me (again) for a bit. House going on the market. I'll work my usual exercise, booze, and guitar playing this weekend in between prepping for the move and social engagements tonight, tomorrow, and Sun. Dinner at buddy's house (and his common law wifey) tonight (and w/ my son), pool time with the ladies in Virginia during the day tomorrow, and book group on Sunday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35am Marley P. Dogg:

Jennica - I would say botanist is on par with hendricks
Avatar 9:35am Jennica:

@Marley- will look for it. Thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37am iiibeat:

Gin or jinn?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37am Handy Haversack:

Thanks, Jennica! I have an inherent distrust of those gig-economy services (Uber, Seamless, etc.). I'll look into Drizly and see what I can figure.

Sounds like a good weekend, Jennica!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39am iiibeat:

Sippin' on jinn and Jews . .

Okay . . It's early.
Avatar 9:41am Jennica:

@Handy - I understand, but this one is just using your local store anyway and the fees are more than reasonable.
@iibeat: Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41am terminalhipness:

but never too early for jazz...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42am WoodsOfNH:

OK, the bread is in the oven. At least I accomplished ONE thing today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44am Handy Haversack:

Thanks, Jennica!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45am Krys O.:

TCM aired A Man Called Adam this week and I caught the last third of it. Such a bizarre movie. I loved Cicely Tyson in it, of course, but couldn't fathom Frank Sinatra Jr. as a jazz musician.
Avatar 9:47am John Allen:

krys, do they ever reveal what instrument frank jr plays? Or was it just jazz...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50am Krys O.:

For the life of me, I couldn't tell you. The edits were fast and jagged. I mostly recall the scene where Sinatra Jr.'s character, Vincent gets beaten up and Sammy Davis Jr. is unable to help him, thus sending Sammy down a spiral of relapse.
Avatar 9:51am John Allen:

Wait, sammy relapses because he cant help a friend? That sounds more like dean martin
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51am terminalhipness:

Krys, JA - '...Adam' does sound strange. Peter Lawford? Maybe I'll look in the on-demand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51am Krys O.:

Funnily enough, there are production stills online that show FS Jr. with a cornet just like Sammy's.
Avatar 9:53am John Allen:

Thats pretty hip, cornet used to be a lead horn. In 1920.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54am Krys O.:

I don't see it on Watch TCM's streaming list. Louis Armstrong and Mel Torme are in it too. It's directed by Sean's dad, Leo Penn.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55am Krys O.:

The jazz banter is so bad it's good.

Morning everyone, time to stare at numbers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06am Handy Haversack:

If thou starest long enough at the numbers, Crudbringer, they will stare back at you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08am sphere:

I am not a number, I am a free being!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10am Handy Haversack:

sphere, do you have a gin you like?

What else are we low on ... ? Whisky, wine, Averna, rye, ... sigh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11am Crudbringer:

Old Overholt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18am WoodsOfNH:

I'm low on Wild Turkey
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19am Handy Haversack:

Our local usually has a good price on Rittenhouse.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19am sphere:

@ Handy - i tend to do spritzers with vermouth, lime, and and soda water.
Avatar 10:21am John Allen:

Please send your best photos of drinking at 9am so i can instagram post john@wfmu.org

"Chicago Waves", "Neba neba": wishlist to cart; Moor Mother now on the 'further listening' list...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22am Handy Haversack:

Mmmm, delish, @sphere. I wish there were still siphon services!
Avatar 10:22am nematomorpha:

"Spritzer" is used in english aswell?
thought it was an austrian thing.
Avatar 10:23am nematomorpha:

and I like mine with Cynar!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25am listener 126464:

Bourbon Sour eye opener over here
Avatar 10:26am Jennica:

@nema: yes, we say spritzer
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29am WoodsOfNH:

Mmmmm....durian
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30am Handy Haversack:

Though now I'm wondering what kind of semiotic membranes there are between "spritzer" and "and soda" in American English. Like, I drink Cynar and soda -- and think of it as such, rather than a spritzer.

Also, I have a tendency to just shout "CYNAR!" Especially in games of Risk. Though that's less relevant.
Avatar 10:30am Jennica:

spritzer is a blend whereas soda can be soda on it's own
Avatar 10:31am Jennica:

its*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31am Crudbringer:

But sodas were originally hand-mixed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33am sphere:

@ Handy - that's a good question. my guess is that spritzers try to be lower alcohol than "**** and soda.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34am Handy Haversack:

If I say "gimme a vermouth and soda," are they going to charge me spritzer prices? Crudbringer, what do the numbers say?

Hmmm, sphere, very possible ... very possible! Maybe in bar parlance, spritzers are always "tall."
Avatar 10:35am nematomorpha:

btw. germans call it "Schorle".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36am David (in London):

Back from an exciting jaunt - booze purchased, squirrels fed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37am Handy Haversack:

David, we are deep in it over here -- your expertise (and booze) needed badly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39am David (in London):

Handy, what are we deep in? The effluent?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40am Handy Haversack:

The semiotics of spritzers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42am Crudbringer:

It's called a "spritzer" so that it doesn't _sound_ like you're day-drinking when you order it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43am David (in London):

Well, I asked that nice Monsieur Barthes, and he just scowled at me and said "Just shut up and give me a drink, s'il vous PLAIT!"
Avatar 10:44am Jennica:

It might be cooler to drink "...and soda" vs. a spritzer and @Crud, you have a solid point, per usge
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46am Crudbringer:

Yeah, it has the veneer of "health/wellness". Focus on the "herbal" content of the Campari/amaro/Cynar/whatever, ignore the fact that it's gonna get you schnockered. Patent remedies for the Goop-and-crystal set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47am adampsyche:

i forgot to pack a beer for lunch today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48am karlward:

If I missed Don Henley today then I demand to hear JA do a karaoke jazz version of any Eagles song
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49am karlward:

My terms are reasonable
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49am David (in London):

I've applied to join the Goop set. I think they might turn me down.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50am Handy Haversack:

"Oh, I'll just do a laudanum spritzer" -- you're right, Crud! Works like a charm!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51am WoodsOfNH:

Do you have to dress up for the Goop set? I'm not big on dressing up.
Avatar 10:51am Jennica:

Also, I think spritzers are sweet and "and sodas" are not sugary. Critical distinction that we almost missed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55am karlward:

I first heard Brother Ah because of this show, and then I won the Divine Music compilation from this show during the Marathon. Thanks JA for bringing me into the Ah.
Avatar 10:56am John Allen:

karl, fortunately enough, for me, is that you did NOT miss don henley
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57am David (in London):

Woods, I had to try a Himalayan Healing Gown and some clown shoes. The former was very itchy. Can't say I liked it much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58am Crudbringer:

Jennica, yeah. Like a football player plays sports, but is not a sportsman. "... and soda" always means plain soda water, vs. "rum & Coke" or "7 & 7".

This is great, John. RIP Brother Ah.

Sure thing John! I'll get some Cynar, some Campari, and some Aperol. Maybe Becherovka if I can find it. Will be back in a while!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15am Handy Haversack:

Parched here. Parched.

Actually, I'm suiting up in my outdoor jeans and Chuck Taylors and heading for the liquor store. Hemmingway daiquiris all around when I get back!
