Can we just hear Stoned and Starving now? Get it over with.. and also cause I'm anxiously anticipating it..
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:04pm Scott McDowell:

Never heard of it.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:04pm bobdoesthings:

HA!

hey man...HEY MAN...
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:07pm glenn:

i walked into my local vinyl emporium yesterday to the luxurious tones of stoned and starving, blasting at 11.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:08pm Chris from DC:

Ending the day. If only....
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:10pm northguineahills:

Yeah, I'm at the office for at least another 4+ hours....
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:10pm Chris from DC:

At least we have this.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:11pm PKNY:

I cheated on WFMU yesterday, and listened to the Coltrane marathon on WKCR.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:12pm tim from champaign:

Was the any post A Love Supreme Coltrane featured on WKCR?
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:13pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- was also very recently 50th Anniversary of the terrible events that inspired 'Alabama' - so...
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:14pm glenn:

pkny is a bad radio boyfriend.
  Tue. 9/24/13 3:15pm Mark:

This is interesting--not the take of "Alabama" that was on "Live at Birdland." Very cool. And isn't Hipnosis on a Jackie McLean album that Grachan plays on? You're playing some excellent tunes today, my friend.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:17pm Scott McDowell:

The Live at Birdland LP that I pulled from the WFMU library had a shortened version of Alalbama - only 2 minutes! So bizarre.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- were trying to wiki 'Hipnosis' to find out about personnel & such - & it looked like that to me...
  Tue. 9/24/13 3:20pm Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

This Coltrane fella really blows! Great show!

Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:20pm Scott McDowell:

Yep indeed it's from the Jackie McLean album Hipnosis -- but pulled here from Grachan Moncur's Mosaic Select box set.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:21pm PKNY:

@Glenn - I'm a Trane hoe, what can I say?
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:22pm Scott McDowell:

No foul, pkny, no foul.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:22pm DCE:

Irene played "A Love Supreme" yesterday, Tim, just fyi
  Tue. 9/24/13 3:22pm Mark:

Thanks for the link, RR--wow, look at that lineup! A Grachan Moncur Mosaic box set. Bet they sold about 3 of those! (I'd be one of the 3, of course--might have to pick that one up.) Love Grachan Moncur's "Evolution" album, too!
  Tue. 9/24/13 3:23pm SLHalper:

@tim, they played take 1 of Ascension in the afternoon, then a 2 hour show co-hosted by Elliot Sharp with only '66 music - mostly unreleased. Very out.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:23pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

LOVE LOVE LOVE this Coltrane/Cherry release.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:25pm Scott McDowell:

re: mosaic select box: It's mostly McLean records plus Some Other Stuff and Evolution.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:25pm Andrew Waterloo:

I got to see ROVA play Ascension in Guelph.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:26pm Andrew Waterloo:

There's a couple good Moncur releases on Actuelle as well.
  Tue. 9/24/13 3:27pm Mark:

Coltrane WAS very out in '66. Just listened to part of his set at Newport that year. People must have been wondering wtf was going on. I love this Cherry/Coltrane recording, too. I never knew they played together--great stuff! Speaking of Don Cherry, pick up his "Complete Communion" with Gato Barbieri if you don't already have it. I think Billy Higgins plays drums on that one, too. The perfect balance of melodic and out. Great album.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:28pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

All b. Sept. 23: Trane, Springsteen, Ray Charles
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:28pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

True, that's a great one Mark.
  Tue. 9/24/13 3:30pm Mark:

And let's throw in Jackie McLean's "Let Freedom Ring" while we're at it.
  Tue. 9/24/13 3:31pm bloopy:

woohhooooo
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:32pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- Cherry & Higgins (& Charlie Haden) were w/ Ornette, of course - & Trane hung w/ them a bit...
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...to some Rockers, Jazz is - Uncool (&, even more so maybe - vice versa).
- *Sorry* - Trane & Monk are as much 'Home' as Jimi & the Beatles...
  Tue. 9/24/13 3:35pm Mark:

Yeah that was a monstrous quartet. Apparently they were THE group to see in NY that first year they blew in from L.A. ('59, maybe?) Charlie said he looked up one night and along the bar was every musician he respected, including Mingus, checking them out. Must have been a little nerve-wracking for him.
  Tue. 9/24/13 3:37pm Mark:

Most musicians respect other great musicians, regardless of genre. It's the fans that can be closed-minded.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yeah - didn't Charlie say Leonard Bernstein was feeling up his bass - ??...
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:38pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- well...touching it...
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:39pm YETI BOB:

RevRabbit: As far as I am concerned. Jazz musicians INVENTED cool. No rocker ever has been as cool as Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, or Charles Mingus. (Just to pick a few names).
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:41pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...some say Lester Young *specifically* invented 'Cool' : p ...
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:42pm DCE:

now how'd they do that LIVE??
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Miles & Mingus could run a little 'Hot'...
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:43pm common:

that skipping disc sounded krazy with coltrane.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:44pm YETI BOB:

RevRabbit: Yeah, Lester Young, there was one cool cat.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:45pm steve:

i like the jazzy skipping
  Tue. 9/24/13 3:45pm Mark:

Leonard Bernstein's a perfect example of the kind of musician I was talking about. When everyone was making fun of the Beatles, Bernstein told them, wait--there's more here than screaming teenagers, you have to listen to how inventive and original this music is. He was a great fan of all good music--not just classical.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:48pm bobdoesthings:

Are those cicadas? This would terrify Tom Sharpling
  Tue. 9/24/13 3:48pm bloopy:

you're the coltrane guy. irwin is the lee morgan guy
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:49pm YETI BOB:

"Prez invented cool. Rather than state a melody, he suggested it. He barely breathed into his horn, creating an intimacy that gave me chills."

Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:49pm northguineahills:

curious, I faved this Maximin track on Fabio's show two weeks ago. reminds me of Main w/ a darker undercurrent.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:53pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

same here (maximin starred)
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 3:58pm northguineahills:

Gonna go see Gate & Tom Carter Thursnite, psyched!
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 4:02pm glenn:

i have to go to the store. when will stoned and starving be played?
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 4:10pm Scott McDowell:

northguineahills, I read that as "Thurstonite"
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 4:10pm Andrew Waterloo:

i wonder if a third Fela vinyl box set will be released.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 4:13pm northguineahills:

Thurston's one true weakness besides Kim.

haha NGH!!

...goshdarnit - ya made me get outta the tub to ☆ that 'Different Koko'!; *that* were pretty Ornette-ish...

segue!

Heyap, Scotty. Puhhh, everyone!
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 5:11pm steve:

did i hear that the epic Lonnie Holley FMU sessions are being released in physical form? i may have imagined it
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 5:12pm bobdoesthings:

Lonnie was on last week with Trouble/Modern World.. got an exhibition up too now I think..
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 5:13pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Carm - that 'Tar is killin' me...
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 5:19pm Whosondephone:

Yeah Babby!
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 5:34pm steve:

more analog warmth in studio A
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 5:34pm Whosondephone:

NO NO NO NO
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 5:34pm bobdoesthings:

hmmm I didn't notice.. but I am also dilligently at work.. so much so.. I find time to comment here..
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 5:36pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

spending too much time away from headphones.
this me likey.
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 5:57pm hamburger:

I was secretly wondering if Parquet Courts - Stoned and Starving would be played, but alas it wasn't, which would have been cool, but no point being too predictable here at the same time!
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 5:57pm northguineahills:

Thankewws Scott!
Avatar Tue. 9/24/13 5:58pm Whosondephone:

Does the studio change affect the records? The bass sounds a little dead.
