lovely shot, Irene...good day to you.
  Mon. 9/23/13 12:06pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Hey Irene, hello one and all
  Mon. 9/23/13 12:07pm Juurakkotukka:

I love this song! :) love from Finland!
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:08pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Agree DCE, great photo
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:10pm DCE:

how does she make the guitar do that? a wicked slide?
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:11pm kat330:

Hello, hello, Irene, DCE and Sean! Still busy but today taking a nice long lunch break to listen in and comment once in a while.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:13pm DCE:

nice long lunch break sounds like a plan, kat!
  Mon. 9/23/13 12:13pm van:

late but here. hi Irene and peoples.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:14pm Shaun(ununun):

DCE: Love Mary Halvorson. That album actually came out on Firehouse 12(?). She uses a lot of whammy, while playing I think.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:16pm kat330:

@DCE: Yep, and overdue.
@Van: Hey! Are you going west young man, anytime soon?

Yes, Halvorson is sublime.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:19pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Everybody! Glad you're enjoying the tunes today. @Shaun(uununun), you're right but it's actually both. I'll list the other though.
  Mon. 9/23/13 12:20pm KP:

Hi, Irene!
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:21pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Hey Kat, Van, DCE, Shaun and KP
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:23pm kat330:

How's your weather in the UK? Best thing I could wish everyone here is to be having the glorious day we're having (and been having) here in the Louisville metro area.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:24pm Cheri Pi:

Heya Irene and the gang
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:25pm steve:

i love this BoC track
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:26pm kat330:

This Lynch is off the hook—um, the rope—too.
  Mon. 9/23/13 12:27pm van:

Oh hi kat, just saw your question...you never know. I keep trying and wanting to, and I've been tantalized recently by someone telling me to hold on for something soon in the Dallas area...
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:29pm kat330:

Well, best of luck to you, Van. I'll say a little prayer as a member of the congregation of the Everlasting Light of Hope. ;)
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:32pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Kat, I think we could be heading into a possible Indian Summer, weather looking decent for the week. @Steve, that BoC track was a cracker
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:34pm kat330:

Wonder if Coryell came up with that title when at the dentist .. or while brushing his teeth.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:36pm doca:

@kat330: what's the everlasting light of hope?
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:37pm kat330:

@doca: Um, my pretend, personal church. :)
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:38pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Kat, just going of on a non-musical tangent and I know you will be watching this sometime in the near future but episode 14 of Breaking Bad which was shown last Sunday was in my humble opinion the best hour of television I have ever seen, this series has gone through the stratosphere,
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:39pm doca:

You mean as personal-only-to-you-church or your personal religion? I like personal churches as in that first sense of the word, and yours has a specially beautiful name
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:40pm kat330:

Ooooh, Sean, yes, please tread carefully here! I was listening to a local station on Saturday when a DJ started talking about last Sunday's BB on his mic break, and I didn't take any chances. Turned it off for a few just to be on the safe side. Guess he was mic Break-ing bad for me. :)
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:42pm common:

thanks for a love supreme! so good.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:43pm Sean in Bristol UK:

not going to say a word, I will be in mourning this time next wek when this series finishes, I am so blown away that on my trip over next April I have used some air miles to fly down to Albuquerque to pay homage!
  Mon. 9/23/13 12:43pm Marmalade kitty:

Hello Irene & Irenians :) Happy birthday JC
  Mon. 9/23/13 12:43pm van:

Thanks for this Coltrane!
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:43pm Sean in Bristol UK:

John Coltrane, nice
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:43pm kat330:

@doca: As in your first part. I've strayed several times over the decades, when it seemed the world was a hopeless place, but somehow I always return. Here's a link to a Pastis piece that pretty much sums me up: tinyurl.com...
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:52pm Davee:

Hello Irene!
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:54pm Davee:

Disappoptimist . . . you could put me there too!
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:55pm Davee:

I always tell folks I am a pessimistic optimist.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:55pm Davee:

Seems to be a balance there . . .
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:56pm doca:

@kat330: hahah great, I guess the personal churches are the only way to be a happy disappoptimist.
But we sure could all pray to John Coltrane
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:58pm kat330:

@Davee: Well, I was a die-hard optimist growing up and a staunch environmentalist. Then the late 60s assassinations and then the Reagan administration and well, sh*t happens.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:58pm doca:

there's a cartoon by Laerte, a brazilian cartoonist, from his series on God where there's a woman crying and she finds Him and she gets angry that He could not lend a hand to her. So God replies: "If you can't have my hand, at least I could offer you my shoulder". I always thought that was a very poignant view of religion, specially personal ones.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 12:59pm kat330:

Yeah, let's all get on the Coltrane soul train -- whooooo-hoooo! :)

@Irene: From your playlist so far, one might wonder if it's your anniversary or somesuch? It's most love-ly whatever the inspiration.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 1:01pm Shaun(ununun):

I've been away, making brunch flax pancakes.

Irene: I had a feeling Improvised Communications had to have been involved with the album for you to list it but I couldn't find anything querying it on DDG. But they did blog on their wordpress about her being in the Firehouse studio for that record. I just know that she's a resident artist for the Firehouse 12 label and all of her trio/quintet/ and now septet releases have come out via them.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 1:03pm doca:

@shaun: I guess maybe the CD version came out by Firehouse 12 and the LP on some other label. F12 don't usually releases LP's (vinyls), but they're doing it for some of Mary Halvorson's releases.
  Mon. 9/23/13 1:06pm van:

Beautiful set
  Mon. 9/23/13 1:16pm van:

rur roh
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 1:18pm Irene Trudel:

Oops! Don't try to purchase a track on iTunes while you're playing out of iTunes. (DJ 101)
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 1:22pm kat330:

Just got a call from ATT (we're still having periodic connection outages) asking if it would be OK if they "take down our service" right now to check things out. A tribute to how much I'm enjoying your show, Irene, I replied: Only after 3 pm. :)
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 1:23pm Irene Trudel:

Sweet!
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 1:27pm kat330:

Off-balance on (or near) the Equinox?
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 1:36pm Shaun(ununun):

@doca: They did an LP for Bending Bridges(firehouse12records.com..., maybe Improvised is behind the pressing?). And for the new 'Illusionary Sea" as well (I wanted that one badly but settle for getting the CD)!
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 1:39pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Another great song from Laura Marling followed by Nick Drake, sweet.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 1:41pm the glowing one:

string arrangements. you love them or hate them. mostly hate them.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 1:44pm the glowing one:

...and depends heavily on the year of the recording. Alela Diane's done it right.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 1:45pm kat330:

IMO, a cello line improves most any song.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 1:48pm the glowing one:

fully agree, gives it a chamber music feeling which fits folk better than orchestral strings, which are too "grandiose" imho
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 1:49pm kat330:

Really wish I'd had the opportunity to learn cello as a child. The synth cello sound on my keyboard just doesn't cut it. :/
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 1:51pm the glowing one:

Cello is such a beautiful instrument, it's so versatile and balanced.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 1:54pm kat330:

On some playlist months back, I mentioned that (for me) the cello most closely emulates the human voice. Someone countered that, no, it's the saxophone. I granted a touché, but then riposted, the cello most closely emulates a human voice that's been liquor and smoke-free. :)
Kiiiiittttyyyy!
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 1:55pm the glowing one:

Hahaha
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 1:57pm kat330:

I dunno if it was that kitty in the studio or something else, but right outside my window now is an angry squirrel, making a chittering racket.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 1:59pm Irene Trudel:

prrrmmmrrew?
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 2:00pm YETI BOB:

Wow, Linda Perhacs is wonderful! What a beautiful song!
  Mon. 9/23/13 2:00pm van:

"The violin is an instrument that is said to be much like the human voice, and in this musician's masterly hands, it sobbed and laughed and sang -- ecstatic, sorrowful, importuning, adoring, flirtatious, castigating, playful, romancing, merry, triumphal, sumptuous. "

Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 2:03pm Shaun(ununun):

I'm going to go outside with my own cat and read some Arcana II.

She (the cat) draws a lot of chattering from a few squirrels in my neighborhood.

Really enjoyed the Apenion & Árbore. Take care everyone. ;)
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 2:03pm the glowing one:

The human voice is an instrument that is said to be much like the human voice... woops.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 2:03pm kat330:

The lower register of a well-played flute also sounds much like the human voice to me.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 2:05pm kat330:

Enjoy, Shaun! Breathe!
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 2:13pm Mike East:

Hummingbird Deluxe...perhaps a tribute to the Gibson guitar that it's played on?
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 2:15pm kat330:

Hey, folks == ATT just showed up no matter what I said. :/ So if I don't let them look into things, they'll put it off for who knows how long.
Sorrrryyy! I'll catch up in the archive if not back before 3pm. BYE!
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 2:19pm the glowing one:

@Mike East: on a Gibson Hummingbird where the low E is out of tune when played open... :D
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 2:19pm the glowing one:

Bye Kat!
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 2:27pm Irene Trudel:

@ Mike East and @ glowing one, I think you are correct sirs! Don mentioned there was a backstory to the new tune. @Kat, no worries. The archive will be up soon.
  Mon. 9/23/13 2:33pm van:

So, a few nights ago, I literally had a dream where I was at a record fair and came across a FMU rack of records, and two Irene Trudel marathon vinyl LP premiums (do those even exist?) might as well have been shining in gold at me. I snatched them up in an instant :) Best $75 per album I ever spent in a dream!
  Mon. 9/23/13 2:37pm 12539:

What a great dream!
  Mon. 9/23/13 2:42pm prokop:

hello, what's the music under your talk? thanks for great show!
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 2:49pm Sean in Bristol UK:

What a wonderful track this is, wow
  Mon. 9/23/13 2:50pm kat330:

Perfect disappoptimist scenario: I was optimistic ATT would honor and abide by my request to wait until after 3 pm, esp. given the hell they've needlessly put us through over the decades, but no, I was disappointed by them yet again. Sigh.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 2:52pm kat330:

Oooh, I missed Hitchcock. And catching the end (or middle) of Barbez.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 2:52pm maestroso:

Love this Laura Mvula track.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 2:52pm kat330:

Is this still Mvula?
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 2:55pm kat330:

Must still have been Barbez (the speaking female). Radio says it's Sheets now.
  Mon. 9/23/13 2:58pm 12539:

Thanks, Irene.
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 2:58pm Irene Trudel:

Verizon always disappoints. And not to disappoint, I must bid you all 'adieu" for a couple of weeks
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 2:59pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Irene, as always a wonderful show, really loved the Laura Mvula track, we will of course miss you, have a fab time. Have a great week everyone
Avatar Mon. 9/23/13 3:00pm kat330:

Have a great fortnight, Irene, and thanks for all this fine show -- all I heard and what is to come in the archives!
  Mon. 9/23/13 3:00pm van:

Thanks for a great show Irene!
