Unfortunately, it's all to easy to predict. "I had decent health coverage under the Affordable Care Act (which is what the Republicans replaced Obamacare with), and now I've lost it. But Trump's my president! And it's the liberals' fault!"

Learned something about payola: it helped put Rusty Warren on the charts, with the practice for comedy records being less attention-worthy for the authorities than rock.

Might as well make it midnight to noon, then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/4/17 3:14pm Parq:

This NoLa music is a good omen. I have a colleague and good friend on her way there as I type.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/4/17 3:14pm Parq:

Okay, Miss Fish is from the MoTown, but I always associate this song with New O.
Avatar Thu. 5/4/17 3:17pm βrian:

Apparently, the album was recorded in Detroit. It's not clear where Samantha is based these days.

Art Pepper :)
Avatar Thu. 5/4/17 3:23pm geezerette:

& the great Gershwin material.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/4/17 3:23pm doctorjazz:

Yup, Gezzerette, Art is one of the greats!
Avatar Thu. 5/4/17 3:25pm geezerette:

doc,he wrote,or maybe "as told to", a powerful, harrowing autobiography.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/4/17 3:27pm doctorjazz:

What was it, Straight Life, if I remember correctly? Haven't read it (just starting an Anthony Braxton biography...slow going at the beginning).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/4/17 3:28pm doctorjazz:

Eric Mingus, cool!
(went to see David Murray last night-his son was playing guitar in the band, Mingus Murray).
Avatar Thu. 5/4/17 3:28pm geezerette:

Yeah, I think "Straight Life" is the title! Coudn't remember.
Avatar Thu. 5/4/17 3:29pm geezerette:

How was that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/4/17 3:31pm doctorjazz:

It was great! (Murray isn't quite the powerhouse he was 20 years ago, but who is? He played tenor great, did 1 song on bass clarinet, had D.D. Jackson in the band, what could be bad?)
Avatar Thu. 5/4/17 3:31pm GIVE THE DRUMMER RADIO:

@doctorjazz
Are you reading Forces in Motion? If so, great book!
Avatar Thu. 5/4/17 3:33pm geezerette:

Doug,doc, "Forces in Motion" Anthony Braxton?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/4/17 3:34pm doctorjazz:

Don't mean to imply his playing was deficient-he circular breathed (?) and played incredibly long lines, it was great to hear him. I just remember him blowing the roof off...

Yeah, Forces In Motion is the book, just at the beginning, mostly discussing Sun Ra, though Braxton does seem very sweet...
  Thu. 5/4/17 3:34pm βrian:

Who's hollerin' in the background there?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/4/17 3:34pm Jeff Golick:

Forces in Motion: yes yes yes. (How did you find your copy, if I may ask, @doctorjazz?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/4/17 3:36pm doctorjazz:

@Jeff, you had recommended it, so I just looked for it on Amazon, and ordered a copy from them.
Avatar Thu. 5/4/17 3:36pm GIVE THE DRUMMER RADIO:

@geezerette
Forces in Motion is a book, not a doc. But it should be!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/4/17 3:37pm Jeff Golick:

(In my day job - which I am ignoning right now, thanks to this show - I am in contact with the author, Graham Lock.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/4/17 3:38pm Jeff Golick:

(I am also ignoning spell-check.)

Thanks Doug,I was actually addressing "doc" Jazz.
I'm such a sloppy writer in comments!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/4/17 3:42pm Parq:

The Schofeld track is sensational.
Avatar Thu. 5/4/17 3:43pm GIVE THE DRUMMER RADIO:

@geezerette
That is so funny!
  Thu. 5/4/17 3:43pm Steve Krinsky:

I'm having a blast, how about you? Can't wait to go home to listen to my show!
Avatar Thu. 5/4/17 3:43pm geezerette:

Addressing both you and doctorjazz.
Avatar Thu. 5/4/17 3:46pm geezerette:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/4/17 3:47pm doctorjazz:

It was a great show, Steve! Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/4/17 3:47pm Parq:

What a great Drummer stream day this has been. And it's not nearly over!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/4/17 3:48pm doctorjazz:

Miles to go...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/4/17 3:49pm doctorjazz:

Saw Sebastion play with the Jim Kweskin Jug Band this past yr, guitar and harmonica (and ribbing Kweskin and the band about being the only one with hits).
Avatar Thu. 5/4/17 3:50pm geezerette:

Yay,Parq! Are we all lucky or what!?

doc J,nice! :)

The great Charlie Lewis is next with his Busy Doing Nothing finale: wfmu.org...
  Thu. 5/4/17 3:51pm Dean:

Been lurking.

Great to hear that Murray was enjoyable, @doctorjazz.

Kweskin? Isn't he the guy who read Elmer Fudd's mind?
Avatar Thu. 5/4/17 3:51pm geezerette:

see you,Annie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/4/17 3:54pm doctorjazz:

@Dean, I was tempted to stay for the late set (being a school day, and maybe a bit responsible, sent me home after the early set). And, he's going to have the Octet Friday and Saturday; not likely I'll make it again, but it would be nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/4/17 3:56pm Parq:

Luv this So Nice. Miss Amanda put out a Spoonful tribute disk as a marathon premium, which includes Astrud Gilberto signing this song with her kid. Wondrous!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/4/17 3:58pm doctorjazz:

I'll try to get to the Spoonful tribute at FMU, should be fun.

No need to do station IDs on the Drummer Stream, Steve!
