Live Performance by Becca Stevens
With a breezily emotional vocal style and an impressive mastery of guitar-like instruments, Becca Stevens has been quietly gaining a strong fanbase in the jazz/rock world. She's worked folks like with Brad Mehldau, Lionel Loueke, and the Bjorkestra, to name a few, and has a couple of gorgeous albums out as bandleader. Stevens, along with Rebecca Martin and Gretchen Parlato, perform as the ensemble Tillery (which had to reschedule for later in the year). Becca Stevens dropped by to play a few tunes solo.

Hey Irene, hello one and all, looking forward to hearing the wonderful Becca Stevens
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 12:05pm kat330:

Welcome back, Irene! Hi, Sean and all still to arrive!
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 12:08pm kat330:

That tUnE-yArDs was so delightful.
  Mon. 10/14/13 12:10pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Hi Kat, yes, welcome back Irene, we have missed you. This comment allows me to have a minute's break from cycling one of the many gruesome hills in Bristol
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 12:10pm kat330:

And that photo is extraordinary, Irene!
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 12:11pm Lonious Monk:

bonjour irene !
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 12:12pm kat330:

@Sean: Cycling, wheee! I. should play Luka Bloom's "Acoustic Motorbike" to inspire you. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/14/13 12:13pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Everybody! Glad to be back after a nice trip to the west coast. Becca is all warmed up to go at about 12:30. Hope some of you might be willing to make a pledge today to our silent fundraiser, which will help WFMU build our Studio of Tomorrow, a great new ground-floor performance space.

Welcome back, Irene. Hey Columbus canceled alt.parking for me so I am enjoying show from high above east river and not down on the street.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/14/13 12:19pm Irene Trudel:

I hear ya, @KP! Alt. side parking is cancelled through Thursday this week, which is a great thing for is NY-ers with cars.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/14/13 12:21pm DCE:

what is this alt.parking thing?
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 12:22pm fred von helsing:

if you like newsome go see her live. it's a very moving experience.
  Mon. 10/14/13 12:22pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Awesome set to start us off, Irene. Pledge sent via airmail

Great photo
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/14/13 12:27pm Mike East:

@DCE - the city street sweeper comes by and cleans the street. Most streets have signs posted telling you which days between which hours you're not allowed to park on that side of the street...so even if you don't use your car at all, you still need to move it to the other side of the street about 3 or 4 times a week....otherwise you get a ticket.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/14/13 12:27pm Irene Trudel:

@DCE, this is the hell NYC drivers go through about twice a week. We have to move our cars so the street sweepers can "clean" the streets. It alternates each side of the street, hence the name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/14/13 12:28pm Mike East:

sorry to butt in, there.
Good afternoon, Irene and all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/14/13 12:30pm Irene Trudel:

@ Sean, I took that picture in Golden Gate Park at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival. Someone was hanging these "living foil" figurines from trees and bushes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/14/13 12:30pm DCE:

well, clean streets are tantamount to clean minds, so carry on!
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 12:30pm kat330:

Hey, Mike. Even Knob Knee has street-sweeping days, including our Avenue right in front. At least April through October.
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 12:31pm kat330:

@Irene: Say, I mentioned your photo up at the top!
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 12:34pm Jay/London:

good afternoon Irene hi Mike East how's the cooking ?
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 12:35pm KP:

  Mon. 10/14/13 12:35pm Peter K.:

Lovely first set, lulling me gently back into bed and speeding my recovery from my nasty cold. What is this Miles-like talk-over music?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/14/13 12:36pm Mike East:

@Jay - I made a ton of food for my daughter's birthday party yesterday...but alas, no falafel yet. If I'm cooking for a group like my family, I try to go with delicious yet uncomplicated meat dishes.
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 12:39pm Jay/London:

@ Mike East yeah i see where it would be easier that way .. so falafel next on your list i am making pumpkin soup now
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 12:39pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Irene, only if you have a spare moment but could you thank Becca for the wonderful concert in London around about this time last year. Also it was great to talk about our Metsies with Becca and the lads. Maybe we could all go to a game next April when I fly over,
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 12:39pm Cork:

Becca Stevens WOW what an amazing voice! ;) i love it
  Mon. 10/14/13 12:39pm 12539:

Sounding good!
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 12:41pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Oh, I was wearing a WFMU T shirt at the gig, you have to fly the colours!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/14/13 12:42pm Mike East:

@Jay - pumpkin soup sounds perfect for the season. I'm gonna email you a recipe for Gypsy soup which my sister made for the party and I plan on recreating soon. Yes...falafel will come soon...my wife stopped eating meat, so she's gonna need some more veg options.
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 12:43pm Jay/London:

thanks Mike gypsy soup sounds like fun :)
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 12:46pm Sean in Bristol UK:

This is just wonderful from Becca, is there a new album out soon?
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 12:48pm Jay/London:

@ Mike East Got the email think I will make it up later in the week thanks again ... love becca stevens voice !
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 12:56pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Totally agree, Irene, one of the albums of the year and just great to hear this track live
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 1:00pm Sean in Bristol UK:

I was, Becca, front row to witness an evening of awesomeness
  Mon. 10/14/13 1:05pm Peter K.:

"Imperfect Animals" -- what a song!
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 1:08pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Becca, please, please come and play in Bristol the next time you are over here, we have some great venues for you to play
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 1:11pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Sorry folks to be adding loads of comments but I am in seventh heaven. This is a wonderful live playing of a great piece of music,
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 1:13pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Becca, better than the album version.
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 1:15pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Wish I could be in Brooklyn tonight
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 1:19pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Thank you Becca for a wonderful set,
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/14/13 1:20pm Irene Trudel:

Oh, @Sean, no need to explain! I'm a fan too. I can't make it tonight either but hope to be at Wednesday's show.
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 1:28pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Hello all Trudelites, Just tuned in, what a wonderful greeting! Might have to change my plans tonight!
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 1:31pm DJ PANDA BEAR:

Becca is so lovely! Thanks Irene lovin your show!
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 1:31pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Another great track from an album that is, in my humble opinion, a masterpiece
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/14/13 1:31pm Mike East:

Linda Perhacs, positively sublime! Glad you can see her!

Marvelous music today!

Who did the arrangement on this Laura Mvula song? It's as amazing as her voice.
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 1:56pm Sean in Bristol UK:

I am kicking myself, could of seen Laura in Bristol, this is another set of beauty though
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/14/13 2:00pm Irene Trudel:

@Peter, Laura's arranger is Steve Brown, who may be British (as Laura is). Gorgeous, wasn't it?
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 2:21pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Irene, you expand my music, Don Bikoff is new to me, wow!
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 2:42pm Sean in Bristol UK:

That set, Irene, was just majestic, the guitar playing just took your breath away
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/14/13 2:51pm Irene Trudel:

They really are great players. Both have been on this show performing live and there are archives.
Avatar Mon. 10/14/13 2:52pm Cork:

Can you play some " Calvin, Don't Jump! "
  Mon. 10/14/13 2:56pm 12539:

Thanks, Irene (& Becca).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/14/13 2:56pm Irene Trudel:

@Cork, I'm unfortunately out of time. Maybe next week? I haven't played them in a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/14/13 2:57pm Matt from Springfield:

And a sweet Celtic ending! Fine show as always, Irene! Have a great afternoon, everybody!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/14/13 2:58pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks everyone for listening today, ad especially tank you to Becca Stevens for playing such wonderful tunes. And to those of you who pledged to our Silent Fundraiser, you'll have a special place in my heart! Catch you all next week!
