  Fri. 12/23/16 9:09am Listener Robert:

I was just thinking a few mins. ago about how I feel a little thrill sometimes when I hear where a show is coming from. I react that way to the anmt of Squirrel Hill because I was familiar w it as a child. I reacted that way to Art Bell's anmt, "From Manila in the Philippines" because it sounded exotic & other reasons. And I reacted that way to the up-front billing of the unspellable Welsh location of the resort on the final episode of "The Prisoner".

  Fri. 12/23/16 9:15am Listener Robert:

Yes, Portmeirion. But I think it also said its location. Or maybe I just expect Welsh to be unspellable!

  Fri. 12/23/16 9:19am Listener Robert:

When I had shingles a few yrs. ago, I went on tramadol for a mo. Just got me drowsy, not high like Field Marshal Ken reports -- but then, I'm square. But getting OFF it was a "trip" for me. Doc said I shouldn't've discontinued it abruptly like that. Still, withdrawal from it wasn't unpleasant the way it'd been for my friend Nadine -- just weird.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/23/16 9:19am Scraps:

Minnie the Moocher is Dead! I've never heard that one

This tune has a rather fascinating connection to John Coltrane that I learned of whilst Googling last night. Will share on air in a few...

as a reminder, and not to detract from FMU's line-up, BUT the Bach Festival starts today on kcr. in my experience, though, you can wait a day and still hear the whole "playlist"

@Listener Robert
My wife and I stayed at a Bed & Breakfast in deeply rural Pennsylvania the past few days. It was about 50 feet from a near-constantly used CSX rail line. Half-mile freight trains rumbling/screeching past us every hour or more. It was kinda cool, actually. No toxic-spill evacuations was nice, though.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/23/16 9:36am Scraps:

Ah, here we go. From Eugene Chadbourne at Allmusic:

While only a few jazz listeners seem to be aware of this talented individual, there is a choice of three names to have not heard of him by: Herbie Morgan, Herbert Morgan, and Rahman Herbie Morgan. His loyalty to the city of Newark is most likely what has kept him out of the international jazz limelight, although at the same time proximity to New York City has meant Morgan's meaningful music has upon occasion been heard by the right audience at the right time. If a player's talents are to be judged by the people who seek him out, then Morgan rates highly indeed, playing on some of organist Larry Young's marvelous albums in the '60s and rousing spirits in the new millennium alongside jazz poet Amiri Baraka.

It is in the former context that the adventurous jazz fan most likely hears the big sound of Morgan's tenor. Young's short career and smallish discography were packed with incendiary music, an example of jazz fusion at its best and the type of playing that arouses intense curiosity about every name listed in the liner notes. In the '70s Morgan spent some time in the horn section of the Latin jazz group Ocho. At the 2004 Vision Festival in New York City, Morgan performed as part of a Baraka ensemble project called Blue Ark: the Wordship. Other members included the superb percussionist Pheeroan akLaff and pianist Vijay Iyer.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/23/16 9:40am doctorjazz:

That pretty much covers anything I wanted to know about Herbie Morgan (and I love that it was provided by Eugene Chadbourne, I'm guessing that's the guitar player...)

Found this re Ulano: "He once held the Guinness record for the longest drum solo (sixty-seven hours)." Can that possibly be true?

It's the "once held" that's kinda scary. Somebody exceeded 67 hours?

Of course there is a dispute as to who *really* set the record. A Boo McAfee claims he did 738 hours in '81. I suppose I could claim having started a solo in '65, diddled a bit throughout the '70s...

Reminds me of that joke about the guy who goes to some country in Africa, and hears constant drumming everywhere. Whenever he asks anyone, they reply: "When the drums stop, it;s very very bad."

So finally the drums stop, and he asks: "What's going to happen now?", and someone cringing says: "Bass solo!".

Carol was going to come over to the Stream, but she ended up taking over another slot on WFMU that opened up. At least I think that is the story. Scott McDowell may yet end up on the Stream. Things may possibly happen "down the road."
