Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/31/17 9:05am doctorjazz:

Figured I'd check out WWOZ, they have a listing for the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. I know it is a truism, but there really is NO JAZZ at the festival (well, not NO JAZZ, maybe 1%-Kenny Barron and The Jazz Epistles, with Abdullah Ibrahim and Hugh Masekela will be there). I went twice in the 90's, it was true then as well, but not quite as dramatically as this schedule).

Blythe also had his In The Tradition band which did a great job with "regular" jazz
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/31/17 10:12am Ike:

@Glenn, I don't think he's actually crazier, and quite possibly he's less likely to start a nuclear war, slowly tear down the international order and bring about a new Franz Ferdinand moment, or keep a long enemies list. OTOH, Doctorjazz makes a good point. Oh and the "mother" stuff is creepy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/31/17 10:14am Stanley:

Uncle Michael - no problem but you do know that it's dependant on doing your chores.
Avatar Fri. 3/31/17 10:15am Doug Schulkind:

Nice timing, Jeff Golick!

And then there's Amiri Barka's poem "In the Tradition: For Black Arthur Blythe." Heard him perform it live with David Murray and Steve McCall. Mindblowing evening it was.

@Ike I believe the car that carried Franz Ferdinand's killers drove up next to him but overshot and had to back up. Still did the job.

I saw the old In The Tradition band a few times (loved that band), but that show with the poem and David Murray sounds amazing!

An insanely great record.
Avatar Fri. 3/31/17 10:23am Doug Schulkind:

@Mr C
I have been reading that about Blythe since his death. I learned that he was a rather soft spoken fellow, but one who stood up to aggression and injustice (especially with the cops in L.A. in his formative years).

I believe he was under contract with Columbia for seven years.
  Fri. 3/31/17 10:42am Listener Gregory:

Very sad about Arthur Blythe. I remember listening to him back in the day when you wondered if jazz was going to become an adjunct of disco or something. His flame was always burning.
Avatar Fri. 3/31/17 10:44am Doug Schulkind:

I have always told the story in my head that it was Columbia that made Blythe drop his stage name "Black Arthur." There is no factual basis to this notion, I just imagined that a major label would've been behind Blythe's change in name on his LPs. Anyone know if this might possibly be true?

So glad you're here, Listener Gregory. Blythe had been living with increasingly aggressive Parkinson's for over a decade. To the extent that endings can be good, I am glad he is at rest.

There is some major guitar badassery happening on this Super Djata cut. MAJOR.

Another massive, dense groove here!
Avatar Fri. 3/31/17 11:24am Rich in Washington:

I used to swear by those 'Rainbow' generic tapes as a kid. One reason was that our mom could get them from work nearly at cost. The other was that they seemed really durable. Eventually they went downhill. I think they got bought out by some crappy consortium.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/31/17 11:24am Andrew Waterloo:

@Doug, I never understood the need to have 320 over VBR. For me, it's been as long as it's not 128 or 196.

If this is Super Djata, I think even mediocre Djata must be pretty good.

Use 24/198 FLAC whenever possible (yes, I'm an audio geek...)
Avatar    Fri. 3/31/17 11:32am Jeff Golick:

I have some 128s. It'll do, in lieu of not having the music at all. I'm an audio plebe.
Avatar Fri. 3/31/17 11:34am Doug Schulkind:

If I had unlimited space, I would be down with flacs. But I don't so I ain't.

128s are OK, but you can hear the cutoff when the cutoff is there.
Avatar    Fri. 3/31/17 11:36am hyde:

@Doug heh, i stay away from flacs for the most part for that very reason
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/31/17 11:36am Andrew Waterloo:

Yah, between the amount of music I purchase from bandcamp and maintaining backups, Flac was just too big.

(I'm sure I don't have a fraction of the music you FMU DJ's have, but I'm on my 3rd external hard drive. Still try to buy CD's and LP's when I can. Then my computer just stopped making sound, trying to find the problem, likely a driver?)

TDK-SA90 4EVA!!! Well, at least until I can grab a nice rip encoded to FLAC. My library is scattered with all sorts of goof encodings, but well tagged and tended. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hi, Alex in Ill!

Working from home today. Sure is nice to hear the show at good volume on a proper system. Yip!
Avatar    Fri. 3/31/17 11:44am Jeff Golick:

Out of curiosity, re digital tune storage/management, are most of y'all off of iTunes and using some other method of organization? Uncle Michael got me over to JRiver a few years back and I really like it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/31/17 11:45am Uncle Michael:

JRiver? Me? Hmmm...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/31/17 11:45am Andrew Waterloo:

I use Foodbar2000 and old-fashioned file management.
Avatar Fri. 3/31/17 11:46am Rich in Washington:

iTunes is always making it harder and harder to organize vast amounts of music. I think that's their goal.
Avatar    Fri. 3/31/17 11:46am Jeff Golick:

No? Maybe it was Jeff Moore, then...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/31/17 11:46am Uncle Michael:

I use massive external drives and File Explorer. I don't "manage" my library at all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/31/17 11:46am Artie Haywire:

@doctorjazz - Sometimes it's just a simple as the machine forgetting to use the right audio output device. if you're in for an upgrade, there's a wide range of nice sounding USB DACs on the market these days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 3/31/17 11:46am Uncle Michael:

I use lots of different playbak option, including Foobar2000.

We seem to be stuck in 1972. Uncle Michael promises to take you way back to 1971 on today's Hinky Dinky Time. You might as well go. You're up to date on all your immunizations.

Foobar allows me to write prepared scripts for moving and creating files based on Tags.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/31/17 11:47am doctorjazz:

Yeah, UM, I rebooted. Use JRiver for music, I believe my antivirus (Kaspersky) "cleaned" the JRiver, and I have no sound since, not with JRiver, Foobar,Windows Media Player, nada.

Well, as it happens, March 31 is World Backup day.
Make sure your backup drive is in good shape — and bootable if possible.

I guess I do rely a lot on Logitech Media Server, and that scans and builds a database.

@Artie Haywire-I'm a geek, use an external DAC, Geek Out Special Edition.
Avatar Fri. 3/31/17 11:48am Doug Schulkind:

I need someone to come hold my hand as I transition away from iTunes as my library infrastructure. I am just too wussy to do it by myself.
Avatar Fri. 3/31/17 11:48am Rich in Washington:

I think the real reason behind iTune's continued progressive uselessness is that Apple just wants to turn it into a portal for the store and for paying for access to streams. They could care less about your collection of digital files.
Avatar    Fri. 3/31/17 11:49am Jeff Golick:

Might have to look at Foobar, then. I believe that, instead of crossword puzzles and word-finds, trying to learn a new bit of software will keep dementia at bay, for a time...

Avatar Fri. 3/31/17 11:49am northguineahills:

All of my various blank tape, cassette and reel-to-reel, and most of my master recordings were thrown out by my landlord 3 years ago. I made the mistake of cleaning my apartment the same day they decided to clean the common area (for the first time in two years), I put the box outside my front door, and a few hours later, I hear cleaning noises in the hall, open the door, my box was gone, and workers couldn't tell me what happened to it. Not a fun day.

@Rich: you nailed it. They so clearly prioritize commerce over user convenience.

I have an intense love/hate relationship with Apple; I have to use their hardware professionally, but as a consumer, I cannot sustain their upgrade or die business model.

Home library is mainly managed with Tag&Rename, File Explorer, and some backup sync scripts. Playback with Logitech Media Server (oldie/goodie), playback UI by iPeng on iPhone/iPad. If I was building all today, I'd be looking at Rune or Roon server and little build-yr-own devices.

That's awful NGH. I am sorry to hear. I had something like that happen a few years back. My wife confused a large tote of reel to reel tapes with a similar looking tote of VHS tapes bound for the Goodwill bins.

Roon does sound appealing, but it ain't cheap.
I like Foobar, but JRiver is my favorite (not free, though)

Another great show for the books, thanks Doug!

and Neil Young's Pono Player, which I like a lot.
Avatar Fri. 3/31/17 11:54am northguineahills:

I haven't upgraded my iTunes in four years. The updates just fudge everything up 80% of the time, and it works fine as is, so there is no need. It's the same reason I haven't updated my iPhone in five years.

Ouch, Rich! At least I had some faceless workers hired by my less then cordial landlord as the villain in my case. If my wife did that, I'd would at least be able to get out of cleaning the apt for a year.
