Hello gents, two fingers of red eye & whatever you are having.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/14 12:10pm northguineahills:

I'm going out for a double espresso, even though coffee-related beverages hate me, as I'm sick of sleeping in 2-3 hour blocks, and want to get back to a regular circadian rhythm.
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 12:11pm Jeff Golick:

Afternoon, @Brian in UK. Great to have you here.
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 12:11pm Doug Schulkind:

When I got to Oberlin in 1979, I signed up to play in the Jazz Band at the school's conservatory. The leader of the band was Candy Johnson, an older tenor sax player who filled in with Ellington and Basie and other bands when they came through the midwest and needed a horn player. (He also played with Lucky Millinder and Tiny Bradshaw and, possibly, a later incarnation of Andy Kirk's Clouds of Joy.) Anyway, on the first day of band, Candy tells the band we're going to start off with C-Jam Blues and a trumpeter asked, "what key is it in?" and the withering glare from Johnson was burned into my brain for eternity.

So if anyone ever asks, it's in the key of C.

Nice whistle, Doug. (that's Whistle & flute rhyming slang)
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 12:15pm Jeff Golick:

This Mingus cut was recorded live at Carnegie almost exactly forty (FORTY) years ago. 19 January 1974.

Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 12:19pm Jeff Golick:

This is a pretty good horn section: Rahsaan Roland Kirk; George Adams; Charles McPherson; John Handy; Jon Faddis; Hamiet Bluiett.
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 12:21pm Doug Schulkind:

I loved the "Love Supreme" reference just then!
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 12:22pm Jeff Golick:

Yeah, me too! Wasn't sure at first what I was hearing...
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 12:23pm Jeff Golick:

Ellington was to pass away a few months after this performance (24 May 1974). "Perdido" is the flip side of the LP, btw.

@fred! Welcome, and good afternoon.

@ngh - you and your circadian rhythm. I suppose its better than no rhythm at all.

Sorry, how impolite of me, hi Jeff.

i dunno any jeff GOLIK but hello n i luv u n i luv u music u r super gr8 so far,,,!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 12:42pm Doug Schulkind:

I'm a huge fan of the Ellington/Blanton duets. Just Duke's spare, conscientious but devilish piano, and Blanton's galloping, virtuosic and entirely charming bass. What a pair!
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 12:42pm Jeff Golick:


(I am not offended.)

Sorry needed this one more time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/13/14 12:47pm Brian in UK:

Ellington & Coltrane were a snug fit too.
  Mon. 1/13/14 12:49pm ?:

are you gonna do a best of 2013 show - or have you done one?
  Mon. 1/13/14 12:52pm ?:

I find Ellington tremendously complicated - he took Jazz into the realms of Black Classical Music.
His music is misunderstood as well as for the most part unknown by today's kids who look no further than On the Corner type of acid jazz of the early 70s or funky jazz sampled by the hip hop early 90s generation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/14 12:58pm northguineahills:

Classic trio. Glad I saw them around the time this was released.
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 12:59pm Jeff Golick:

?: Yes, a 2013 best-of show is in the works -- possibly two! Just trying to get Jeff J. on the air for that.

Ellington = complicated, yes. And his legacy seems to be getting even more tangled with this latest round of critical conversations.
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 1:01pm Doug Schulkind:

My love for Ellington only expands. And don't EVEN get me started about the miraculous "Money Jungle."

Looks like you got me started.

@765: hope you get that beer...and cake. Welcome; good to have you along.
  Mon. 1/13/14 1:21pm ?:

did pia + werner x rename hat hut to hatOLOGY? i been seeing the latter for awhile now, but it must be hat hut, no? or did it get bought our or somethin'? always amazed how great that label was (is?)....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/14 1:22pm northguineahills:

Still not a fan of the Stone. Not b/c of the programming, but b/c of the attempt to force a rarified air of legitimacy in the venue. No food or drink allowed. Everyone must sit down and face the makeshift stage. It seems like they want to be downtown version of Carnegie Hall. At least Tonic allowed culture inside, and the people and music melted together (even if Tonic has a 'real' stage.) I dig serious music, but not when the presentation becomes too serious.
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 1:25pm Jeff Golick:

@?: the hat label exists as a confusing assortment of different sub-labels and older, discontinued lines. I think -OLOGY is the latest "jazz/imrpov" imprint: www.hathut.com...
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 1:29pm Jeff Golick:

@ngh: I hear you, though haven't had quite the same reaction, seeing it more as an attempt to limit extraneous commerce/commotion. There is indeed a rarefied aspect to it all. Possibly a top-down vibe, as Zorn could certainly be labeled "too serious" from time to time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/13/14 1:30pm Brian in UK:

@ngh I think you would like Cafe Oto in London, cafe in the day and venue at night. No perceptible stage, the music is taken seriously but not to the detriment of a good time.
  Mon. 1/13/14 1:31pm ?:

in contrast to the (arguable stuffy) stone, there's an outfit in london - nonclassical - that do live performances of modern/experimental classical works in pubs and clubs....i've thought about this idea for years, glad someone finally took the reigns and made it happen. chatting loudly over a beer with friends or talking on the phone while an ensemble does, say, 2 hours of pierre schaeffer and david tudor? heaven.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/14 1:32pm northguineahills:

Yeah, I've read good reviews of shows at Cafe Otto. Looks like the legit place missing in NYC that I so crave since Tonic's departure.
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 1:32pm Jeff Golick:

@Brian, just from the programming alone, I can see I would find Oto dreamy. Seems (from afar, at least) as something of a ground zero for what's up now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/13/14 1:34pm Brian in UK:

Only thing missing is a smoky atmosphere!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/13/14 1:38pm Brian in UK:

Got an interesting one coming up next week, the Estonian Philharmonic Choir with Gilhad Atzmon guesting. Inconcruously, he also plays with the Blockheads occasionally.
  Mon. 1/13/14 1:44pm ?:

Yes Doug,
Money Jungle one of my favorits also - can't remember if it was a combination album with Mingus or Coltrane though? Just remember Ellington's deeper and deeper piano notes - everyone else on the album just disappears into insignificance!
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 1:52pm earrie:

Gif from _Coffee and Cigarettes_ it looks like.
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 1:53pm Doug Schulkind:

Just the trio of Duke/Mingus/Roach. Amazing.
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 1:54pm Jeff Golick:

Ellington/Coltrane - that Impulse! record is heavy. Love it so much. I think in Iverson's write-up of the Teachout bio he notes that the omission of this LP from the book is a notable oversight.
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 1:54pm Jeff Golick:

Hello, @earrie! Either that, or Mystery Train, I think.
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 1:57pm earrie:

@Jeff Oh yeah! So close and yet so far. (Though not so far as his role as Street Scum in The King of Comedy.)
Ha. Hi.
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 2:06pm Doug Schulkind:

I believe the Ellington/Coltrane sessions for Impulse and the sessions for Money Jungle took place within a few weeks of each other.
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 2:11pm Doug Schulkind:

Money Jungle: September 17, 1962
Ellington/Coltrane: September 26, 1962

Have you heard the amazing Baraka record on India Navigation with David Murray and Steve McCall? The trio came to Oberlin and performed in '81 or '82.
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 2:12pm Doug Schulkind:

There's not a lot on that record that can be played on the FCC's airwaves.

Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 2:21pm Jeff Golick:

@Doug: um that was a good month for music, Sept 1962.

Do not know that India Navigation item!

As I recall, @ngh, Ian M berated the lighting crew until they stopped doing anything and just left the settings along. (It was admittedly much better.)
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 2:42pm Ripped Off:

I saw Fugazi in '05 for $99.
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 2:42pm Jeff Golick:

Finding it a tad hard to believe that this Garbarek tune had not been played before...? At least in the Kenzo era...
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 2:44pm Doug Schulkind:

The only reference to Afric Pepperbird is Listener Hugo's comment on a D:O playlist last year: wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/14 2:59pm northguineahills:

Well, this Cibo Matta takes me back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/14 3:02pm northguineahills:

The only thing that would have made that last set more perfect is if you played Dr. Alimantado's "Best Dressed Chicken."
Avatar Mon. 1/13/14 3:05pm Jeff Golick:

@ngh: I'll have to look for that one!
