Andrew Cyrille: never saw another drummer who could produce such sounds with such little apparent movement. The guy is amazing.

Was just thinking something similar, @duke. Really one of the great living musicians, period.

Not gonna get to it today, but Cyrille's duo with Bill McHenry from last year is also really good.

this piece of music is one of the most haunting and beautiful things i've ever heard.

just don't tell anyone what inspired it. the conversation drops to silence.
Avatar Sun. 1/8/17 10:47am Jeff Golick:

Hello, @doca! Great to see you! Please keep discussions of warmth to a minimum, though.
Avatar Sun. 1/8/17 10:47am Jeff Golick:

@annie: 20 in Ashville has got to be considered downright frigid?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/8/17 10:49am doca:

@Jeff G: Haha yeah, I understand. Actually, I'm constantly googling "polar air mass" or looking the weather on Northern latitudes just to try to refresh myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/8/17 10:49am annie:

yeah, jeff, rare, but it does happen. i imagine climate change might put an end to our mild winters for a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/8/17 10:50am Andrew Waterloo:

I just stopped looking at the weather. I use it enough to determine which jacket to wear.

i use the weather rock..
Avatar Sun. 1/8/17 10:53am Jeff Golick:

Googled around for more on Górecki's symphony. Whoa. I love the fervent responses from the classical community.
Avatar Sun. 1/8/17 10:55am Jeff Golick:

"Heinz Koch, writing for Musica, said that the symphony 'drags through three old folk melodies (and nothing else) for an endless 55 minutes.' Górecki himself recalled that, at the premiere, he sat next to a "prominent French musician" (Górecki did not name names, though it was probably Pierre Boulez), who, after hearing the twenty-one repetitions of an A-major chord at the end of the symphony, loudly exclaimed 'Merde!'"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/8/17 10:56am annie:

jeff, it is a piece you will never forget. when i first heard it i had the luck to catch it from the very beginning.. by the end i was close to tears. i had to look it up, and when i did i was ravaged with emotion, so intense
  Sun. 1/8/17 11:06am Dean:

I remember when Nonesuch released the CD in '92 that brought the piece to our attention. Yes. there was a lot of nose upturning at the time. I myself have been slow to appreciate it, but then when the Stetson piece started I thought, "Aaron Copland"? That opening phrase feels right out of Copland's score for "Our Town." I suspect some die-hard classical listeners poo-poo Copland, too, for his sometimes schmaltzy, programmatic, Hollywood-ized work. But I love it.
Avatar Sun. 1/8/17 11:09am Jeff Golick:

Hello, @Dean!

Some people, I suspect, like classical music for it's *lack* of emotion (as they experience it), and the faintest whiff of sentiment gives them the vapors.

Or maybe that was just a New Yorker cartoon I 'm mis-remembering.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/8/17 11:10am annie:

wow, dean, '92!?? so long ago.. i played it in the store a lot, and i never tire of it. now it's wonderful to hear snippets.
  Sun. 1/8/17 11:12am Dean:

Well, the avant-garde crowd (Boulez being the icon) eschew emotion. (Just last night I was able to use "eschew" on a comment board, and now again. It has been a good weekend.) But I suspect it's the wrong kind of emotion, not manly enough. See Beethoven.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/8/17 11:14am annie:

interesting you say that jeff, i find so much sentiment in most music. each piece is created from some deep thing. discovering that "source" through someone else's experience is deep and a compliment to the creator. i work hard to appreciate all music, some is easier than others.
Avatar Sun. 1/8/17 11:15am Jeff Golick:

Well, you're clearly an exemplary listener, @annie. (As is anyone reading this comment, naturally.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/8/17 11:16am Andrew Waterloo:

So, not schmaltzy sentimental emotion.
Avatar Sun. 1/8/17 11:16am Jeff Golick:

This "Desert Island" is one woman, multi-tracked, btw.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/8/17 11:17am Dave in Vermont:

It's lovely.
Avatar Sun. 1/8/17 11:17am Jeff Golick:

@Andrew: yeah, that's a lot to parse.

@Dave in Vermont: hi! Yeah!
Avatar Sun. 1/8/17 11:18am glenn:

hey, if i want schmaltzy, sentimental emotion, i'll listen to george jones. which i do.
  Sun. 1/8/17 11:19am Dean:

It's a pity Copland never worked with George Jones, that's for sure.
Avatar Sun. 1/8/17 11:20am Jeff Golick:

...and now I just want to go eat at Sammy's Romanian.
Avatar Sun. 1/8/17 11:21am Jeff Golick:

I saw them live a couple years go.
  Sun. 1/8/17 11:26am Dean:

Apologies for an excursus on Copland, but I just checked Jan Swafford's marvelous Vintage Guide to Classical Music on him. Lots of interesting points/coincidences. Copland was born in 1900 in...Brooklyn! Early in his career he incorporated jazz elements into his music. But, per Swafford, "By the 1930s Copland had established a solid reputation among the relatively few people who followed avant-garde music. But he began to be unhappy with his isolation from the mainstream. Stimulated by left-wing ideas that proliferated in America during the Deptression, he began to look for a style that would be closer to the people." And "Copland's most ambitious work for orchestra" was his...Third Symphony.

Wow, Betty Harris, wow.

And yeah, she's a talent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/8/17 11:55am annie:

it was the first vocal i've ever heard of hers. a rose by any other name, i guess. if there are no labels, maybe we'll love more stuff, huh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/8/17 11:57am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...an Andy Williams sample - & some young woman universally desired reciting easy rhymes about her romantic troubles...it hasn't hit me yet - but it's on the Best Of lists of everyone in existence - so I guess it likely will...

I got a copy of Lemonade out of the library (it was filed under L).
Good, but fifty eight writers for every song?

Nat Hentoff has been in my awareness since I can remember.
