A significant portion of today's program will be the presentation of an hour-long duet between Adbul Wadud and the poet Michael S. Harper. Recorded live at the University of Illinois in 1971, it is a harrowing journey of grief and joy not to be missed.

Hey there thedunkel!

@ausmanx
I saw that! There is some confusion over the date of the Harper/Wadud duet I am going to play. I have seen one reference that dates it to 1984, but in the introduction to the piece (which I edited out), the host announces that Harper's book, published by the University of Illinois in 1971, had just been published.

One of the reasons I generally avoid doing "tribute" and other single-themed shows is that I feel so bloody awful about the incredible music that I can't fit in. And that is the case with today's program. The cutting-room floor here is neck deep with amazing sounds. Sigh.

Traditionally, here's where I'd put in that I took a small class w Prof Michael S Harper in college and was terrified most of the time. The rest if the time I was just really nervous. So...there we go.
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 9:23am Doug Schulkind:

The recording engineer on this track The Hard Blues was the amazing soul sax player and producer Oliver Sain. He produced those amazing early sessions with Fontella Bass. (A trumpeter on the date, Lester Bowie, would later marry Ms. Bass.)

Good morning, everyperson.

@kat For sure - the summer has been so mild - a number of humid days, but few hot and humid days - everything good except the pollen count:)
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 9:25am Doug Schulkind:

The poetry Mr. Harper will begin reading presently will be, at times, fairly terrifying. Dead children, suicide by rat poison, cancer. If your gut has ears, you might want to warn it. But there will be great joy and delight, too.

G'morning, Uncle Michael!

Hoo boy, that's the fastest I've had a day go south on me in a long while. Even a poem about dead children and rat poison will be a step up. If not for WFMU I'd be returning to bed by this point. (No pressure, Doug and UM!)
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 9:30am ndbob:

wow sorry James
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 9:31am Doug Schulkind:

@ndbob
I have broken up the poetry duet into to parts. The first one is the heavier set and lasts about 38 minutes. It will begin in about 12 minutes or so. The second section is about 25 minutes and and can't exactly say when I will be playing it. Probably around 11am (ET) or so.
  Fri. 8/22/14 9:32am jeff g:

Have found the production on Hard Blues kinda weird actually. There's some odd-sounding panning? or knob-turning of some kind? on the unison horn parts. Typically chalked it up to a bad transfer to CD.

ah OK - I will be back after part one then

I've witnessed, even been a victim, of how PD's locally and around this country feel they can do just about anything with impunity. And it's most usually a safe gamble for them to do so, too. If there is any reason to laud technology, it's the advent of phone cameras and videotaping ease we now have.
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 9:53am listener james from westwood:

kat330, have you read Matt Taibbi's latest book? It shows how rigged the system against people seeking justice. Basically the path of least resistance becomes accepting a fine, parole, constant police or state intrusion (e,g. when seeking welfare benefits) and the abridgment of const. rights vs. getting a lawyer to even fight the case. Sick. I read that and Packer's "The Unwinding" in the same week and was sorely motivated to have a bonfire for my passport while standing on a non-US shore.
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 9:57am kat330:

@James: Haven't read the book, but I have read his articles -- NYer + ? Rolling Stone? maybe even Vanity Fair? -- and it warms the cockles of my heart to know that investigative journalism is alive and well in Taibbi.

Like in Scottsburg, where the mayor progressively brought broadband to everyone?
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:41am ndbob:

Service is really slow - though the did recently increase the bandwith

The guitarist on this track is Dominique Gaumont, who died five years after this recording at age, gulp. 30.

Next up a track from maybe the most glorious Abdul Wadud gem of them all: His solo cello record "By Myself."
  Fri. 8/22/14 11:45am boxwalla:

Gaumont played on some great 70s Miles recordings too!

I hope you'll all join me in the next room. The line forms through the gift shop. wfmu.org...

@boxwalla
Did not know that until reading it just now at Wikipedia.

@ndbob: Do you know if you can receive 1220 AM radio from Salem, IN? Not sure if it reaches you and, though you wouldn't want to listen other than to confirm signal, that's WSLM, the radio station my dad started in 1953 and operated until his death in 2010.

Uncle M, took a sneak peek at your playlist. Is that image from the famous (or infamous, if you prefer) Apple "1984" commercial?
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:49am kat330:

Simply cello-mazing. Thanks for this morning's program, Doug!
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:50am ndbob:

I'm not sure Kat - I will check next time in the car - chances are pretty good I think
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:50am Uncle Michael:

Parq, I honestly do not know...it's possible but I don't suspect so.
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:51am Brian in UK:

Doug, back to your comment about hearing the cello played. Ever heard Peter Maxwell Davies' Eight Songs for a Mad King. That's a snappy little number. Brice country.
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:51am kat330:

It was farm news, Rock'n'roll, country and sermonizing dawn to dusk under my father's ownership, but now my youngest half-sister and her husband have made a very big mess of it. :,

It is!

@kat looking at the website now
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:52am Gary:

This is absurdly great
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:52am Doug Schulkind:

Hey up there, Parq! Almost missed you!

@Brian in UK
Have NOT heard that. YET.
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:53am Doug Schulkind:

@Uncle Michael
Gonna run a minute or two over. My apologies. (I said the same thing to Jesse K on Tuesday. Whoops!)
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:54am Uncle Michael:

Why, I oughta...
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:54am kat330:

Latin flavor here.
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:56am Doug Schulkind:

This track is reminiscent of Marion Brown's (Latin-tinged) La Placita. (Making mental note to try that segue in a few years.)
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:57am ndbob:

excellent show Doug!
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:57am Parq:

Hey back atcha, Doug. You wouldn't have been missing much.
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:57am kat330:

Habanero, I think.
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:57am Brian in UK:

Delicious, Doug.
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:58am Gary:

Really great show, Doug; thank you for introducing me to yet ANOTHER great musician I hadn't known of before
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:59am Doug Schulkind:

Not hardly, Parq!

@Gary
A little angel somewhere just got his/her/its wings!

Thanks for giving my ears wonderful things to chew on this morning, Doug.
Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:59am kat330:

Avatar Fri. 8/22/14 11:59am Doug Schulkind:

Keep your fingers away from Uncle Michael's ears, everyone.
