Again I offer this invitation for you to enjoy three hours of the music/ian I love the most. (Sorry, but I couldn't pay to have it engraved.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/10/14 8:56am duke:

Yay more Yusef. I really appreciate hearing Yusef in depth. One of my favorite things about WFMU and GTDS is this sort of attention to an artist.

morning, doug and all! cleaning day today, so mostly away from keys. yusef will be most welcome.

Hello, Doug, Doug, duke, Doug, james, ndbob & Doug. Anything special planned?

@james I cannot imagine 'dusting doiles' ever turning up in a Richard Brautigan novel.

Good morning fiends.
Avatar    Fri. 1/10/14 9:15am Doug Schulkind:

No doubt I would otherwise be spending time honoring Baraka today. And the great trumpeter Roy Campbell, who just died suddenly. But today, my love for Yusef stands in for all loves combined.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/10/14 9:16am Brian in UK:

Clark 'n Yusef almost twins. Talking of which our twins girls have the same birthday as Yusef. You needed to know that.

Has there ever been a badder-ass record title than "Boss of the Soul-Stream Trombone"?
Avatar    Fri. 1/10/14 9:21am Doug Schulkind:

Yusef has switched from tenor sax to flute in order to pet the world like a purring kitten.

glad it is Friday and you can take me through a morning of hard -- I do not want to do it -- work...! loving this flutie -- happy in brooklyn.

The dearly departed Freddie Hubbard on trumpet here. (Donald Byrd is up next.)

Hello happy Lucy!

glenn, if the kids do the chuck wagon thing, they're gonna run thru my cabinets, under my sink, and encounter my household toxins.

That composer credit mistake will be cleared up at song's end...
Avatar    Fri. 1/10/14 9:43am Doug Schulkind:

The bass player here, Ernie Farrow (Alice Coltrane's half-brother) is playing an Egyptian one-stringed instrument called a rebat (rebob). Yusef made it for him to play.
Avatar    Fri. 1/10/14 9:46am Doug Schulkind:

Cissy Houston and the Sweet Inspirations in the background here.

Juba Juba - my favorite Yusef song off teh first jazz album I ever bought
Avatar    Fri. 1/10/14 9:48am Doug Schulkind:

You ain't kidding. This was the first Yusef record I ever bought, too. My first love. So wild and soulful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/10/14 9:50am duke:

Buddy Lucas on harmonica?
Avatar    Fri. 1/10/14 9:50am Doug Schulkind:

This song is dedicated to/inspired by early minstrel performer William Henry Lane.

Yes! Buddy Lucas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/10/14 9:56am northguineahills:

Juba, South Sudan?
Avatar    Fri. 1/10/14 9:58am Doug Schulkind:

The city name Juba may have been related to William Henry Lane's nickname. (It is not a stretch to imagine that black performers in the 1840s would be "given" nicknames with African references.)
Avatar    Fri. 1/10/14 10:00am Doug Schulkind:

I am just guessing here that this is Douglas Ewart doing the circular breathing. Yusef was 85 when this was recorded. Could his lungs have handled this?!?
Avatar    Fri. 1/10/14 10:03am Doug Schulkind:

Definitely Yusef on flute here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/10/14 10:14am duke:

@doug I also bought it as a cutout, great bargain
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/10/14 10:15am northguineahills:

ahh, Master Juba was covered in Nick Tosches' "Where the Dead Voices Gather".
Avatar    Fri. 1/10/14 10:18am Doug Schulkind:

The audience participation on this live record (10 Years Hence) makes it even more of a treasure. It puts you thrillingly in the time and place of the performance, which all great live recordings do. This must have been one hell of a time and place to be.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/10/14 10:26am northguineahills:

This is a happy lively tune.

Q: Doug, in 30+ years on the radio, have you ever played Don McLean before?

A: Uh, no. No I haven't.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/10/14 11:01am Uncle Michael:

I'm glad to know that Don isn't persona non grata across all of WFMU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/10/14 11:03am Andrew Waterloo:

I can't imagine anyone being persona non grata on WFMU
Avatar    Fri. 1/10/14 11:04am Doug Schulkind:

Exactly, Andrew Waterloo. As soon as someone is "off limits," it only makes me wanna play it more.

Next, set, folks: ALL GRATEFUL DEAD!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/10/14 11:05am Uncle Michael:

I hate to be a tease (no, actually I don't)...Mr. McLean factors into my upcoming Marathon DJ premium.

Carmichael and Uncle Michael. I wonder if they're related.

Morning Carm!

Yusef was not performing live in concert with Ms. Phillips. He and the horn section were dubbed in later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/10/14 11:13am Carmichael:

Spiritually, perhaps. And you've never seen us in the same room at the same time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/10/14 11:15am Alex In Illinois:

Hi everyone. Hi Carmichael.
How come Michael is the only archangel that gets a car? There's no Cargabriel, Carraphael or Caruriel. I have heard of a Carariel though.

Any further comments will be dubbed on later in the public bar. My money is on this show extending to next Dec 23rd. Good work, boss.

Imagine Yusef standing there alone in the booth, headphones on playing Esther back in his ears, flute in hand...

@Alex in Illinois
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 11:19am still b/p:

So when we were teenagers, a guy I knew used the number of the JT version of You've Got A Friend from the youth lounge jukebox as a shorthand check-in/inquiry regarding fondness and palhood reassurance. "G12?," he'd ask, "G12....?" Not requesting or promising the song itself -- just code for "That's the deal with us, right?" He did not toss it at me, and the period in which he did this with others was mercifully short.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/10/14 11:19am northguineahills:

Gotta run for a bit. Superbly awesome, Doug, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/10/14 11:20am Carmichael:

BTW, nice LP autograph, Doug! Someday I'll tell you the funny story behind my autographed Taj Mahal LP Oh So Good 'n' Bluesy.

Here is the story of when I got Yusef's autograph:
Avatar    Fri. 1/10/14 11:24am βrian:

Richard Feyman pronounces "Arista" with the accent on the first syllable. (Referring to the honor society after which the record company was named.)

From now on, we shall call you EZ Pass.
Avatar    Fri. 1/10/14 11:37am Doug Schulkind:

True story: I was back in NYC eary last year (for the WFMU marathon, I think) and I was rushing to get to the station from where I was staying in Ridgewood. Well, I went down the stairs into the subway and encountered one of those "no live MTA worker" entrances with only a set of vertical turnstyles between me and the platform. Well I slide my Metrocard once, twice, a hundred damn times and it wouldn't work. I KNEW I had cash on it, and was missing trains trying to get the damn thing to engage the contact strip correctly. Enraged, I dashed up and out and over a few blocks and down another entrance to the same station. It was then that I realized, with the help of tourist signage, that I had been sliding the fucking card with the magnetic stripe on the wrong side. Fuck fuck fuck! Though this all happened essentially in private, I will never be able to remove the stain of humiliation. (Not that it would be humiliating for anyone who doesn't know. But for me, it only served to emphasize the distance I had traveled in becoming an ex-longtime New Yorker.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/10/14 11:39am Uncle Michael:

At least you can take comfort in the knowledge that the security cameras recorded your rage.
