"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.)

Good morning, JA and you dirty, dirty barn people!

Morning, JA, J'All.

Who's in Your Barn?

You are!
  9:07am john the g:

i am digging this. any more info besides 'dirty' by 'don'? a bit hard to track down
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:08am HyperDose:

I think the barn adds a lil something to the mix. Not sure what, but it adds something.
Avatar 9:09am John Allen:

more barn?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:11am HyperDose:

That's it. Astute observation John!

This music makes me want to watch Dr. Katz.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15am YETI BOB:

I love this Sparkle Division. And Henry Grimes is on this track, I feel like it must have been one of his last sessions (?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16am YETI BOB:

I think they recorded this a few years back and sat on it for a while
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17am Handy Haversack:

How was your Thursday, YB?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18am YETI BOB:

@HH: Pretty nice. We made and at TWO pizzas! 1) Caramelized onion & smoked blue cheese 2) Tomato, capers and parmesan
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18am YETI BOB:

*ate
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19am YETI BOB:

also popped open a bottle of nice champagne which went really nicely with the savoury pie
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20am Handy Haversack:

Oooo, that sounds excellent, YB!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21am YETI BOB:

How was yours?
  9:22am Wild Cheddar:

Treble is at ASMR level
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24am Handy Haversack:

Nice. Pretty chill, except for the idiotic idea I had to talk to my sisters, which crashed and burned in spectacular fashion. Cooked. Ate too much. Listened to WFMU. Managed to bathe the dog without disaster accompanying. Good enough for for government work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26am YETI BOB:

There are a couple empty beer bottles and a half-empty bottle of Pinot Noir that I don't even remember opening. Things got a little blurry after the champagne.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27am Handy Haversack:

Heh, yeah, I maybe didn't strictly *need* those last whiskies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30am YETI BOB:

We've been protesting the T****p administration by only drinking Obama-era wines. The champagne was L'Aubry Fils, 2013 vintage. Best bottle I've had in a long time. I don't drink champagne often but I really like it when I do and I always say "I should drink this stuff more often!". I truly am a Champagne Socialist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32am YETI BOB:

also, very quiet here today. i guess a lot of folks are sleeping it off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39am Handy Haversack:

Kate just came in and looked at the screen: "It's just you talking to Yeti Bob!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40am YETI BOB:

Hi Kate! Yeah this is a little weird :)
  9:40am ami ad:

Hey fellow fellas.
Avatar 9:41am John Allen:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43am PaulRobeson1920:

Rob Mazurek Sounds good. Howd’y ya’ll!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44am George of Troy:

Hey John, good morning
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44am YETI BOB:

Ok. From today's news: The town of Fucking, Austria has finally given up, after centuries of jokes they are changing their name to Fugging.

Hey, here's some people. Hi Paul and George! (Where's Ringo and John?)
Avatar 9:44am Malcolm:

hello hello
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45am YETI BOB:

Oops John is the host, we just need a Ringo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46am PaulRobeson1920:

Ringo is hangin with some deer and going for a long hike today! He sends his love

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52am adampsyche:

good morning
  9:53am ami ad:

Handy Haversack: All's well,sitting here,not much going on. What you up to?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54am Handy Haversack:

I think we're actually going to venture into the world, ami ad. Take the ferry at least as far as DUMBO, meet up with a couple of people, see what happens next.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55am YETI BOB:

Go ahead, John!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55am Pale Son:

Love this album!
  9:57am ami ad:

@Handy Haversack:Nice,looks bright out there,safe travels.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58am YETI BOB:

@Pale Son: Haven't seen you in a while, how are you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00am Pale Son:

Good, thanks, YB! Been fairly busy with work, so I've been staying off the message boards. Always listening, though. :)
  10:00am Marley P Dogg:

Haha woke up expecting reggae school room. Hello JA!
Avatar 10:01am John Allen:

hey MPD!
  10:02am Rob:

Great show today, John. Every track has been a certified banger
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03am Blacktooth:

I've always thought that John McLaughlin's guitar work on this specific song was one of the few places where heavy-metal and jazz briefly and successfully shook hands. Such a strange, expansive, and aggressive track.
  10:04am DaveInPA:

performance art!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06am YETI BOB:

Dave Holland is holding the whole thing together
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07am Doug in JC:

It is surprisingly nice out here in JC
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11am Handy Haversack:

Doug, we were scheming to maybe come to JC today, drop off a pie or something at the Magic Factory, but the ferry schedule is annoying. There's still a chance we make it over there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16am Doug in JC:

Oh really! I'm not sure if we'll be around all day but let me know
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20am YETI BOB:

more Dave Holland, nice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20am Deborah:

Good Morning!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27am Handy Haversack:

If he had accomplished all that in negative-two months, though, Rev Rab, even more impressive!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27am YETI BOB:

something screwy is happening out in that barn
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28am YETI BOB:

Yes, we heard it. Ouch! Sorry about the mixer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30am YETI BOB:

I had a mixer go out on me last week during an attempted live-stream. Behringer, sigh.
  10:43am RCleff:

@RR1163: Never heard that quote before, I love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04am coelacanth∅:

haha! i said "smooth jazz" to myself before he finished!
Avatar 11:04am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

You have James Carter - it hasn't stood still. It's like comparing Van Halen to Hendrix...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05am YETI BOB:

@RR1163: Reminds me of Albert Ayler's line "Trane was the father. Pharoah was the son. I was the holy ghost."
Avatar 11:09am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Jazz with the Jazz taken out.' Nothing wrong with pleasant Soul-influenced Romantic Jazz. But if it's not Jazz - call it something else. If you take the Complexity out of Jazz you diminish it - not to mention the Spontaneity - &tc.
Avatar 11:10am Malcolm:

which record is hasan shahid speaking about? sounds amazing!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17am YETI BOB:

Hey Andrew - how did your pizza turn out yesterday? (Ours turned out great!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17am PortsmouthJay:

Anyone having turkey pot pie?
  11:18am DaveinPA:

Just curious - is this the new re-issue vinyl we are hearing currently?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18am Handy Haversack:

No, PortsmouthJay, but our vegetarian supercharged Frito chili pie is going to last a looooong time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19am Andrew_in_WI:

@YETI Very good as well! I've got a 16" cast iron pan (weighs a ton) so I did deep dish (NOT Chicago style though)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19am PortsmouthJay:

Handy, that sounds DELICIOUS.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19am YETI BOB:

@Andrew: Nice, we did thin-crust, on a stone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20am coelacanth∅:

your frito pie caused a craving that resulted in chips and hummus for dinner last night Handy

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32am coelacanth∅:

the discography entry for black unity trio makes no mention of Abdul Wadud. the discogs entry for Abdul does mention black unity trio.
the black unity trio entry list 3 other names, none of which are listed as alternatives for Abdul.
