  Mon. 8/6/12 12:01pm Doug S.:

Pardon the technical difficulty. Show will be up in 6 minutes.
  Mon. 8/6/12 12:03pm duke:

Sounds good, but didn't sound like Roscoe Mitchell.

For once I'm not the one who's late...PLS STAND BY!
  Mon. 8/6/12 12:05pm Doug S.:

Two minutes and 49 seconds...
  Mon. 8/6/12 12:06pm Doug S.:

Not sure how this got mucked up, but you can bet it's MY fault.
  Mon. 8/6/12 12:07pm Doug S.:

We are under a minute now. Keep calm and carry on.

Nah. As always, I blame Brotzmann.
  Mon. 8/6/12 12:09pm Doug S.:

Longest freaking six minutes of my life. Welcome to DESTINATION OUT!!
  Mon. 8/6/12 12:12pm listener james from westwood:

will surely be worth the wait.
  Mon. 8/6/12 12:17pm Artie:

Hello Peaches!
  Mon. 8/6/12 12:19pm Doug S.:

Had dinner with folks here the other night and our host was trying to describe a really loud tenor sax player she saw "at a free jazz festival in New York." Instantaneously I said "Brötzmann," and her jaw dropped like was a magician.

Hi, handsome!

Henry Threadgill; Joseph Jarman; Wallace McMillan; and Roscoe, btw. Four altos.

And now Jeff J points out to me that it's Charlie Haden's birthday today. Not enough hours -- or birthday planners.
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:05pm steve:

why am I hearing Mike Nesmith?

@steve: try www.wfmu.org...

Thanks for the Roscoe Mitchell!
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:27pm steve:

got it! thanks
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:27pm northguineahills:

? was me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/6/12 1:32pm Jeff G:

Ah, the mysterious northguineahills! You are of course very welcome.
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:33pm Jeff J:

This is definitely one of Roscoe's most ambitious and challenging pieces. Great use of his patented rhythm cage. Kudos for Nessa for springing for a great high-tech recording of this composition. Done at CBS studios in NYC!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/6/12 1:34pm Jeff G:

Here's a nifty little interview that Jason Gross did with Mitchell back in 1998. RM discusses this tune and several others we're playing: www.furious.com...
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:39pm duke:

happy bithday roscoe!
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:39pm Michael Pollak:

Great show. Really enjoying it and learning a lot.
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:41pm Jeff J:

Apparently Odwalla were fans of AAC - and there were some business connections between them. Weird. Their products seem to be doing well these days. Wonder if the Art Ensemble sees any royalties for the "theme song"?
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:44pm Michael Pollak:

What's the best way of getting GTDS radio on an iPhone? For some reason, clicking on the link in the mail won't do it for me. And I want to go out and do errands and take this with me.
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:45pm Pat in Philaelphia:

@Michael get the WFMU IPhone app! It'll the change the way you do errands.
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:47pm North Fork:

It really doesn't get any better than this. The whole show I mean.
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:47pm Pat in Philaelphia:

Here's the link: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wfmu-radio/id324175340?mt=8
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:48pm Michael Pollak:

Does the WFMU iPhone app work for this stream?
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:48pm bgporter:

...and for any Android users in the crowd, I've been using an app called 'xiialive lite' to listen to DO:radio whilst walking the dog.
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:50pm bgporter:

...and two seconds of search shows me that there's a corresponding WFMU Android app. Installing.
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:50pm Doug S.:

@Michael Pollak
YES! The WFMU iPhone app has a option to hear this stream. Look for the bongos icon. Unfortunately, you can't (yet) access archives of Drummer Stream shows, but you can hear the stream live to your ears' content.
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:50pm Michael Pollak:

BTW, I fixed the original problem: there was a flaw in the original link Doug mailed out today. I think an extra underline. I just realized it didn't work on the computer either. The right link works fine on the iPhone from mail.
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:51pm duke:

this is cookin'
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/6/12 1:51pm Jeff G:

Such enterprising listeners! Honored and impressed.
The FMU app is really an amazing piece of tech.
@Michael: you get ALL the 'fmu streams with the app.
@North Fork: thanks! Glad you are enjoying!
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:52pm Michael Pollak:

@Pat in Philly @Doug S: Many thanks! Installing now.
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:53pm Doug S.:

@Michael Pollak
You're right, I did screw up the link. (It had an extra period instead of a slash). Rough morning for me, apparently...

My apologies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/6/12 1:53pm Jeff G:

Roscoe's in the left channel here.
How do we know? Liner notes: www.restructures.net...
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:58pm Michael Pollak:

@Doug: Your mistake was my gain. This app is awesome. Plus I didn't know there were other streams. My life has just has a quantum improvement. And BTW, Jeff, this already great show just keeps getting better.
  Mon. 8/6/12 1:58pm bgporter:

Playing the Braxton in honor of his upcoming stint at Roulette next month?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/6/12 1:59pm Jeff G:

God bless Jason Guthartz and his insanely detailed Braxton discog maintained at restructures.net.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/6/12 2:00pm Jeff G:

@bgporter: uh...yeah? Just a lucky coincidence, really.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/6/12 2:02pm Jeff G:

In Doug's defense, the VERY late delivery of some D:O files made for a hectic morning at GTDR HQ. We are nothing if not dependably late.
  Mon. 8/6/12 2:04pm northguineahills:

More Braxton!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/6/12 2:07pm Jeff G:

"Each musician has been given one electric airhorn, three soprano airhorns, and two normal airhorns."

Free Charlie Haden!
  Mon. 8/6/12 2:21pm Hugo:

@ngh: There was a Braxton-Mitchell duet back in the 70s. Dunno if the chaps have it lined up for today's prog, though.
  Mon. 8/6/12 2:24pm northguineahills:

George Lewis is always a treat.
  Mon. 8/6/12 2:28pm bgporter:

Meeting George Lewis was one of the highlights of my Spring this year. Ubuweb has a recording of his Voyager system (featuring Roscoe on a few tracks) available here: http://www.ubu.com/sound/lewis.html
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/6/12 2:29pm Jeff G:

And this is probably the duo Braxton/Mitchell recording alluded to by @Hugo: inconstantsol.blogspot.com... -- not slated for today's show, alas.
  Mon. 8/6/12 2:31pm northguineahills:

I think all of the recordings I have of George Lewis are from the last 10-15 years.
  Mon. 8/6/12 2:32pm Doug S.:

The blog If You Know What I'm Saying is a great site for in-depth Braxtonology:

  Mon. 8/6/12 2:32pm Hugo:

That's the one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/6/12 2:34pm Jeff G:

@ngh: Lewis' HOMAGE TO CHARLES PARKER, from '79, is essential, if you don't have that one. It's less that $2 at Amazon's mp3 store: amzn.to...
  Mon. 8/6/12 2:37pm northguineahills:

Thanks Jeff!
  Mon. 8/6/12 2:59pm listener james from westwood:

thanks, gents, for the fine show! i'm always hoping monday's a d:o day!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/6/12 3:00pm Jeff G:

How sweet. ljfw! Thanks for tuning in! We're ending late today, btw, so don't hang up yet...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/6/12 3:02pm Jeff G:

I think that last tune was so long it bumped us out of "instaplaylist" status...
  Mon. 8/6/12 3:07pm Dervish:

Superlative show Jeff!
  Mon. 8/6/12 3:08pm Dan in Seattle:

Never ever ever enough Roscoe.
  Mon. 8/6/12 3:08pm northguineahills:

Great show!
  Mon. 8/6/12 3:08pm steve:

great show!!! thanks!

Thanks, Dervish, Dan, ngh, steve -- and everyone who tuned in!
