What time is it?

Par-tay time.

I believe it's spelled Par-TAY

Ooh, you remind me of one of my favorite New Year's Eve parties, featuring among other things "The Blues Brothers" and lots of piƱa coladas.
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 6:07pm Doug Schulkind:

What could go wrong, amirite, Listener James?!
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 6:07pm ndbob:

Heya James!

I once talked on the phone with Slide Hampton. An elegant gentleman. An impeccable stylist. (And that was just his phone manners. He was a helluva trombonist, too.)
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 6:12pm Doug Schulkind:

This is one of the most recorded songs in human history. It's crazy that Thelonious Monk was essentially cheated out 2/3 of the royalties.
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 6:18pm Doug Schulkind:

The late, great Raphe Malik on trumpet here. This was recorded at Sam Rivers' loft Studio Rivbea in '72.
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 6:21pm Gary:

Wow, just read the Wikipedia page for the song. I didn't know most of it, but I especially didn't know about the "versions" that Emanuele Arciuli commissioned.
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 6:22pm Doug Schulkind:

Like Malik, Jimmy Lyons died young. The both passed in their mid-50s. Bru tal.

I looked long and hard for the Frederic Rzewski version, Gary.

Hey, it is indeed around midnight around here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/30/14 6:24pm listener james from westwood:

I'm of half a mind to shift my new year's celebration to my birthday, which is almost smack dab in the middle of the year. It's more meaningful to me than an artificial calendar and the weather's a lot less depressing. (The Southern Hemisphere really won the coin toss on 12/31 weather.)

How-DY from Hol-LY!

davex! Holly in NC! So glad you could come!

Hey Doug, Holly, James, Gary....

Heya Holly and Dave!

Happy New Year to Doug and listeners.
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 6:33pm Doug Schulkind:

Richard!! How have you been?!
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 6:34pm Richard from Venezuela:

Good. Chillin' with this amazing set.
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 6:35pm Doug Schulkind:

@Gary
FYI, there is a video on YouTube of Emanuele Arciuli performing George Crumb's version.

Howdy Doody!

George Russell's arrangement here is so fantastic. Of course, anything with Eric Dolphy could be described as such.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/30/14 6:38pm Holly in NC:

I used to have a hard time reconciling Baden Powell with Sir. Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Boy Scouts. Seriously confused ;-)
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 6:40pm Doug Schulkind:

One was a repressed homosexual, the other wasn't. Do I even need to go further?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/30/14 6:40pm doca:

Hey guys, happy new year to all! I'm checking in late today
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 6:41pm Doug Schulkind:

Happy old year, doca!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/30/14 6:41pm doca:

Oh I'm missing some Round About Midnight tunes
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 6:42pm Doug Schulkind:

We're going a bit long this evening. There's no Kaminsky Kamoutsky toes to step on, at least.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/30/14 6:43pm doca:

@Holly: Baden Powell's father put this name on him because he was a fan of Sir. Robert Baden-Powell.
@Doug: Really? I was going to say you could do a show well over one hour of only Round About Midnight versions
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/30/14 6:43pm northguineahills:

@Holly: As an Eagle Scout, I always had the same problem.
  Tue. 12/30/14 6:45pm Carmichael:

Is it too late to give the drummer some?? I have been out doing constructive thongs, like getting drunk on my week off.
  Tue. 12/30/14 6:45pm Carmichael:

Ha ha, "things" ....

jaja, doca!

@Carmichael
Constructive Thongs is rated XXX, I believe.
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 6:50pm Gary:

Hey, wait -- I think I bought a CD by this guy at the WFMU record fair
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 6:51pm Doug Schulkind:

@Gary
For a long while, he was giving his stuff away online. Then he started selling it. Now some is even "out of print."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/30/14 6:52pm doca:

The boy's a merchandising wonder
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 6:56pm ndbob:

I need to get going - excellent show Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/30/14 6:56pm davex:

Thanks for rounding out my day, Doug! And good night everyone...
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 6:57pm Doug Schulkind:

I could have filled six hours with version of this song and only been getting started. No self-respecting improvisor from the 1950s to the present day hasn't played 'Round Midnight at some point.

@davex
You square!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/30/14 6:57pm Holly in NC:

@ngh - Gold Award holdin' Girl Scout here ;-) (Eagle equivalent)
I remember watching a "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" contestant blow their chances by not knowing that that Juliette Low founded the US Girl Scouts in Savannah Georgia, and crying in frustration.

@doca - Seriously?! That's amazing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/30/14 6:58pm northguineahills:

Super awesome happy New Year, y'all!

I knew it was founded in Savannah, but forgot the founder's name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/30/14 6:59pm doca:

@Holly: Yeah it's not like they accidentally have the same name.
  Tue. 12/30/14 6:59pm Carmichael:

Happy New Year was founded in Savannah?!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/30/14 7:00pm doca:

@Doug: That Jimmy Lyons box set was released by Ayler in 1972 or recorded in 1972 and later released by Ayler?
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 7:00pm Doug Schulkind:

So long, ndbob. Have a wonderful tomorrow!
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 7:00pm Doug Schulkind:

Let's get microtonal.
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 7:01pm Doug Schulkind:

@doca
The Jimmy Lyons performance from 1972 was never released until Ayler included it on their 5-CD boxed set a few years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/30/14 7:03pm doca:

@Doug: Yeah stupid question, I was just thinking about the date over there. That Ayler box set is amazing.
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 7:04pm Doug Schulkind:

@doca
If you hunt around a bit, the Jimmy Lyons box set is downloadable...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/30/14 7:05pm doca:

Yeah I got it on soulseek a few years ago, then my external HD crashed and I lost all the jazz I've got (I have almost always to rely on illegal ways of getting music. Sorry)
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 7:05pm Gary:

This is so beautiful
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 7:06pm Doug Schulkind:

No apologies necessary in this corner of the Internet, doca.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/30/14 7:06pm doca:

@Doug: Do you remember or stumbled upon a blog called moneydown that put online whole discographies of free jazz musicians to download a few years ago?
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 7:07pm Gary:

Thanks for another great evening Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/30/14 7:07pm listener james from westwood:

Love these single-song surveys. Thanks, Doug!! Happy New Year to anyone I don't happen to see tomorrow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/30/14 7:07pm doca:

I love them too. Thanks, Doug
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 7:09pm Doug Schulkind:

As always, my deepest pleasure!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/30/14 7:10pm Holly in NC:

Happy New Year all!
Avatar Tue. 12/30/14 7:11pm Doug Schulkind:

See you next year, everyone!
