Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/3/14 9:49am Hugo:

@Doug: I'm planning to put on the blog three Lateef concerts on three consecutive nights in Europe in October 1971 with this line-up:

Yusef Lateef - tenor sax, flute, oboe
Kenny Barron - piano
Bob Cunningham - bass
Albert 'Tootie' Heath - drums

Sounds interesting, no?

@Hugo ever been to Montreux?
Avatar Fri. 1/3/14 9:54am still b/p:

A minus 2 good morning.
Temperature in the bedroom reads 45. I had the thermometer at floor level in there yesterday out of curiosity and it said 40. Got bundled in the big-guns sort of cold protection layers to walk somewhere last evening when it was minus 4. I was HOT within minutes. For a longer walk today, what, just a smoking jacket and earmuffs?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/3/14 9:58am listener james from westwood:

i'm exceptionally lucky. my windows suck (single-pane casement), but i am on the 2nd floor of a 3-floor building occupied mostly by seniors who crank their heat starting in october. consequently it's 68 in here and i'm not paying for the platinum coke spoon for the CEO of the local power combine.

We lost power for about 8 hours last night. Ran the generator to power important stuff: heat, internet so I could listen to Sinner's Crossroads

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/3/14 10:02am Hugo:

@Brian: Yes, in 2000, I think, but unfortunately not during the jazz festival. As this was in summer, we went all the way up to the St. Bernhard pass from where you can cross over into italy. Had a lunch meal, went to look at the dogs and brought with me a couple of souvenir bottles of strong stuff, which, would you believe, are still unopened!

A little later in the show, I will play Yusef's "I Be Cold." One of my all-time all-time favorites. It will sound extra extra wonderful today.

I figured that Mark. Besides, you don't look markish.
Avatar    Fri. 1/3/14 10:15am Doug Schulkind:

You can hear the influence on Yusef of Dizzy Gillespie's forays intro Afro-Cuban sounds big-time in this number.
Avatar Fri. 1/3/14 10:21am ndbob:

Just walked out to get my mail from yesterday - about a one block walk - this would be considered a nice winter day in North Dakota even though it's two degrees - sunny and no wind

You traded up in the weather department, ndbob!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/3/14 10:22am listener james from westwood:

it's all relative. we're creeping toward double digits at 9 right now in bergen county. average that out w/ the near-70-degree december day we had last year.

Just quickly popping in to say that the snow day for NYC schools has rendered my listening choices quite moot this fine morning.

Looking forward to enjoying this one via the magic of the archive.

@Brian: You can purchase a box of Miles Davis concerts in Montreux. Yusef Lateef played at the Kongsberg Jazz Festival and I have a download of excerpts of concerts once shown on tv here. He's in there somewhere.

@Doug yep - though Monday and Tuesday will be bad even by ND standards - could hit minus 15 here - the difference is that by next weekend - and hopefully for the next couple weeks - highs in the 40s - Jamestown was minus 28 the other day

@kat about two inches - the problem is, that while the path to the parking lot here has been cleared off, the sidewalk to the mailbox - a bit of a walk - is iced over - there's enough crunchy snow behind the cars to go there though

When my friend was just starting to play drums, he'd been in his band for about a month, he wasn't very good yet, and they got a gig playing a PRISON! They're doing the gig, playing along, and an inmate stands up and yells, "Give the drummer some!" So what choice did he have? He did, as he put it, his best "kick the drum set down the stairs" drum solo, and that was a wrap! (The name of your show always reminds me of this story.) GREAT GREAT show today, and very classy to pay tribute to the very under-exposed Yusef Lateef.
Avatar    Fri. 1/3/14 10:55am Doug Schulkind:

@doug: OK, thanks!

On a lighter note, the goaty sounds on this track are cracking my kids up : )

Friday the Thirteenth comes on a Monday this month. Just a heads-up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/3/14 11:38am Holly in NC:

Morning everyone! I'm almost hesitant to share that it's a relatively balmy 28°F here in Durham, and very sunny. Still windy as heck though.

What a super song this is!. I am shaking my ash. :-)

From a picture of Yusef appearing on the cover of this record 10 Years Hence, I made this watch:

Glad you're warm, Holly. You had some hellish hot days last summer. You deserve a break.
Avatar    Fri. 1/3/14 11:40am Doug Schulkind:

Yusef preferred not revealing what "instrument" he was using to create the croaking sound on this cut. Sealhorn is the usual guess.
Avatar Fri. 1/3/14 11:41am kat330:

Hey, Holly, and Happy New Year! We had mid-40's on NYE and NY day, so not too shabby here either.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/3/14 11:41am Brian in UK:

You right-handed, Doug?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/3/14 11:41am Uncle Michael:

How do I follow this? I ask you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/3/14 11:42am Uncle Michael:

The attempt will occur here:

Avatar    Fri. 1/3/14 11:42am Doug Schulkind:

During the course of January, I will be playing every track (4 more) from this album. Each a masterwork.
Avatar    Fri. 1/3/14 11:43am Doug Schulkind:

You beat me to it, Uncle Michael! (again)

Yes, the congregation shall congregate over here at noon (eastern):
Avatar Fri. 1/3/14 11:43am kat330:

Well, that's sure ONE way to get warm fast. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/3/14 11:44am Stanley:

That's the best 'baaaa!' noise sample I've ever heard.
Great track, great show Doug.
Avatar    Fri. 1/3/14 11:45am Doug Schulkind:

Next up is my FAVORITE song. Yeah.
Avatar    Fri. 1/3/14 11:45am Doug Schulkind:

Thaaaank you Stanley.
Avatar    Fri. 1/3/14 11:46am Doug Schulkind:

Yusef stood over me and bowed and said, "and here is a song for my new friend here." Then played Russell and Eliot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/3/14 11:46am listener james from westwood:

if ever there were a day to float some chicken gyoza and tofu slices in steaming hot miso, it's today. i think that'll start when i hear my first "hinky dinky."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/3/14 11:47am Holly in NC:

@kat330 - Happy New Year backatcha! Glad you're taking care of your birds.

I am currently caring for chickens, who surprisingly(to me) seem quite weather-impervious/oblivious. Their human parents assured me they'd be fine through this weather, and that summer is more dangerous. Huh!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/3/14 11:48am Uncle Michael:

I'm honored, James.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/3/14 11:49am listener james from westwood:

will be accenting it with green onions from the hinky dinky supermart!
Avatar Fri. 1/3/14 11:49am kat330:

@Holly: I should have added bright, blue skies, sunny days (except yesterday) for the New Year here, too. Despite the incredibly steep rise in birdseed since buying my first feeder, we're still managing. Costs more than buying human grains now!
Avatar Fri. 1/3/14 11:50am kat330:

@James: Oooooh, I ♥ miso soup!! Delish!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/3/14 11:51am Brian in UK:

Only FIVE Fridays in January. Have to have a word with this guy Julian. Nice one, Doug, beautifully compiled.
Avatar Fri. 1/3/14 11:52am ndbob:

excellent tribute Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/3/14 11:52am Holly in NC:

Lunch today w/b a classic French omelette w. a splash of homemade chix stock added while beating the eggs, rolled around a light dusting of gruyere. To be eaten with a dandelion green & mache salad dressed w. a few drops of red wine vinegar & olive oil, and maybe a small slice of homemade chix liver mousse.

Took me longer to type that than it will to make, that's the beauty of it all! :-)
Avatar Fri. 1/3/14 11:52am kat330:

@Doug: Great program today, emotional ending...
