I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

ohhhh I haven't heard Crispell play in a long time. I really like her.
  Fri. 8/8/08 12:22pm jon:

he's never gonna catch that piano. it's moving too fast!
  Fri. 8/8/08 12:22pm bryce:

i know! someone should get DARPA involved.
  Fri. 8/8/08 12:28pm Matt:

I love Bobby Few. He's criminally under appreciated.....

Bryce- you are killing it like usual this afternoon!
  Fri. 8/8/08 12:32pm Dubs:

who is in the band?
  Fri. 8/8/08 12:33pm Hugo:

Aah, this gotta be off the "More or less Few" on the Centre of the World label. Yup, got that one. With Alan Silva and Mohd. Ali. Stone killer!
  Fri. 8/8/08 12:35pm Dubs:

I knew it was Silva. That guy is rad
  Fri. 8/8/08 12:43pm Dubs:

Is this one for the Dubs or are you just awesome?
  Fri. 8/8/08 12:45pm bryce:

15% awesome, 80% obsequious, 5% self-loathing.
  Fri. 8/8/08 12:52pm Hugo:

more awesome, less obsequious ...

If we could get to hear the entire "Seasons", that would be truly awesome. Haven't even played the entire damn thing through myself ...

but Bryce could do it ...
  Fri. 8/8/08 12:54pm bryce:

hugo, get out of my head!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(only this morning i narrowly didn't leave the house with that celestrial communication)
  Fri. 8/8/08 12:59pm Dubs:

True story: I am a radio DJ in St. Louis, MO. On January 31 of this year I indeed aired Seasons in it's 2 hour 40 minutes entirety with no interruptions. http://www.kdhx.org/index.php?option=com_kdhxradio&task=playlist&show=All%20Soul,%20No%20Borders&Itemid=268&date=2008-01-31
  Fri. 8/8/08 1:01pm Hugo:

That is TRULY awesome!
  Fri. 8/8/08 1:02pm Dubs:

100% awesome?
  Fri. 8/8/08 1:02pm Dubs:

0% obsequious
  Fri. 8/8/08 1:05pm bryce:

i'm fucking-a square root of negative one percent crestfallen.
  Fri. 8/8/08 1:07pm Scott m:

You're absolutely killin it, brother!
  Fri. 8/8/08 1:08pm bryce:

hey, man! was hoping you were butterfly stroking the aether....
  Fri. 8/8/08 1:09pm Hugo:

Wow, that's cosmically significant at the 0,005 per cent level!
  Fri. 8/8/08 1:11pm Hugo:

This set is stochastically indeterminate ...
  Fri. 8/8/08 1:14pm bryce:

bethany's gonna krinkle kut me!!
  Fri. 8/8/08 1:19pm gumby:

So how come Sun Ra is the only one to own up to coming from Saturn. There must be others out there. Come on out with it!
  Fri. 8/8/08 1:24pm Mark:

Wonderful set so far... Thanks Bryce!
  Fri. 8/8/08 1:26pm Hugo:

they're too shy to tell ...

can probably be attributed to problems of confidence interval ..?
  Fri. 8/8/08 1:29pm mp:

have you ever met any of the arkhestra members, past, present or future?
any one of them will answer your saturn question, with their energy alone.
  Fri. 8/8/08 1:36pm gumby:

There are worse places to be from than Saturn. I hear the girls are hot on Venus, but so is everything else.
  Fri. 8/8/08 1:42pm north guinea hills:

my friend just gave me 27 sun ra albums (mp3's), it's going to take awhile to get through them.

note: his late 80's stuff (ie: reflections in blue) really sucks!
  Fri. 8/8/08 1:48pm mp:

give that late 80's stuff a chance.
it may take 20 years but eventually it starts to get you.
  Fri. 8/8/08 1:54pm gumby:

I have to get some Sun Ra stuff. Where does one start?
  Fri. 8/8/08 1:57pm Scott m:

Start at Cosmic Tones.
  Fri. 8/8/08 1:58pm Scott m:

I started at Jazz in Silhouette but was sort of disappointed that it wasn't more far out. Now I think it's my favorite one (or one of them). Also, start with Bryce's show right now!
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:00pm mp:

if you are buying cd's i'd go with evidence records (el saturn reissue catalog) and the esp-disk's.
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:00pm Hugo:

Well, you could start on the blog I'm running with some other folks.


(roughly midway down the first page - three 80s live recordings)

I might start posting some from my own mp3 archive, but it's not top of the list - but that can always be rearranged.
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:03pm J:

dude, don't apologize and don't stop!
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:04pm ?:

there is also a 3 part sun ra radio tribute with lots of interviews etc that was produced by wfmu dj "the good doctor" at http://espdisk.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=28&Itemid=86
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:05pm J:

Yes! Thank you!
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:05pm Scott m:

man Hugo I adore inconstant sol (in fact have linked to it from the wfmu blog many times). Fantastic work.

Salt Peanuts!
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:06pm bryce:

the good doctor played on lanquidity!
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:07pm ?:

I would second "Jazz in Silhouette" as a Sun Ra starting point
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:11pm bartelby:

I can't hear this at work, but I did not know you played such good stuff. I will definitely be checking out this show on the archive in the next few days.
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:13pm bryce:

i don't usually! a recently piano fell on my head.
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:13pm sm:

sun ra solar myth approach vol 1 and 2
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:13pm eric:

i don't know what i've done to deserve all this sun ra today, but oh baby, thank you so so much. reminds me of all-night-sun-ra new year's eve shows i did in seattle years ago. thank you!
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:14pm matt:

I might be in the minority on this one, but I really like Other Planes of There
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:15pm mp:

wow, i did not know that. i knew he played with ra but didn't know there were any recordings (other than live tapes) and i love that album, will have to ask the good doc about that when i see him next. great show
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:19pm Hugo:

Good to hear, Scott. It has sort of evolved out of the old "Church number nine" blog, to which I did contribute, but not as a regular poster.

hugo aka "kinabalu"
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:23pm Scott m:

Yeah CN9 RIP, so many good records went up there. You are doing important work!

another killer Bryce jazz show: http://wfmu.org/playlists/shows/25824

If you're not already hooked on friday afternoons you will be after that.
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:23pm gumby:

Thanks for the Sun Ra suggestions and thanks Bryce for the indoctrination this afternoon.
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:39pm Hugo:

Scott, yes I think those two blogs have featured practically all artists on that playlist at one time or another. No wonder I'm stuck inside Bryce's head!

Your show is at an inconvenient time, at least for European listeners, but I do try to catch it on the archives. Some very fine selections there!
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:41pm Johnny:

I'm glad you fell into an unplanned Sun Ra adventure. These things do happen.
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:44pm m:

forgot to bring my headphones to work today so i'm just watching the playlist unfurl and getting more sad... thanks bryce
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:45pm Qfwfq:

Wow, just want to say, this is some fantastic stuff...
Makes me wish I was on Saturn...or maybe not
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:47pm Hugo:

doesn't matter as long as Saturn's here ...
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:49pm Matt:

m, I'm listening at work and my co-workers are enjoying for the most part....I'm a lucky guy.
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:50pm bryce:

HOLY SHIT, no one's ever said that about this show before.
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:52pm Matt:

First time for everything!
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:54pm J:

I can think of nothing better than the fact that this has become a full on Sun Ra afternoon.
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:56pm Parq:

Hurra for the Ra. I caught only the tail end of it, but it was knock-out.
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:58pm bryce:

thanks, everybody!!
seriously, i'd like to send you all pizzas. please contact me.
  Fri. 8/8/08 2:59pm gumby:

If it makes you feel better bryce, my coworker just said, "What the hell are you listening to?" But this guy also considers Muddy Waters music strange.
  Fri. 8/8/08 3:00pm Bad Ronald:

could use a pizza right about now...

Thanks Bryce!
  Fri. 8/8/08 3:39pm mp:

i'll take sun ra over pizza anyday, thanks bryce.
  Fri. 8/8/08 9:34pm TrUdE:

First time listening to your show this afternoon / Long time supporter of WFMU. Really glad that Sun Ra was my afternoon background music at work on this rainy Montreal day!
  Sat. 8/9/08 11:30am mark mcintyre:
