"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Am I inside a cistern right now? Should I be concerned?
  Wed. 2/11/15 6:11am Elisa In New York:

Of course not. :)

Cosmic Coincedence...I am studying frequency waves for a laser beam so this is very apropos.

You're right. It's fairly cosy down here. In the dark.

Is this the Long Ralley's theme?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/11/15 7:14am AndrewC.:

Answered my own question. It clearly is a version...

Dave Burrell is perfect wakeup music for me today.
Avatar Wed. 2/11/15 7:46am John Allen:

you're in for a peaceful and prolonged wakeup, Duke. At least 20 more minutes.
Avatar    Wed. 2/11/15 7:49am duke:

@JA You won't hear me complain.

This is great.
Avatar Wed. 2/11/15 8:09am the Canterbury wood-elf:

This is *really* great. I love my cosmic/modal/free jazz, but never even heard of Dave Burrell before this. Thanks so much JA!

Crikey what a session - now I can get my lunch. Thankyou JA.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/11/15 8:13am adam_nspy:

I'm in.
Avatar Wed. 2/11/15 8:16am the Canterbury wood-elf:

i'd be there, were there not that pesky Atlantic ocean betwixt this elf and Mr Burrell. Never heard "shredding" applied in a jazz context before, but why not : )

Good morning, folks.

John, nothing too special, but I did manage to find a Telex album that I've been after for a while. I didn't have enough time to do all the digging I would've liked, unfortunately.
  Wed. 2/11/15 8:40am tino:

I predict the arrival of the ultimate guitar anti-hero on the level of hendrix who will sort all this out.
Avatar Wed. 2/11/15 8:43am the Canterbury wood-elf:

"Guitar Anti-Hero" is a great concept for a computer game. Play along to Derek Bailey and friends...

@weewee: I was getting the same thing from that song.
Avatar    Wed. 2/11/15 8:51am Sem Chumbo:

Thanks for the company and the spins, John. Head bursting with new sounds, and happy to hear some familiar cuts. See you, and the Allen-ite clan, next time.
