"Old", how appropriate: I was at a sparsely attended show this week and wondered why the audience skewed way older for jazz and improvised music

Morning all! Can't move...

Hi, @doctorjazz! Glued to your chair again?
Avatar    Sun. 5/21/17 9:27am Jeff Golick:

@fred: Yeah. Though these guys were young when recording "Old." I saw Steve Coleman & Five Elements at the Vanguard on Friday night - crowd was mixed but probably skewed old.

When I worked @ a CD store in SantaBarbara - I was impressed how well younger HipHop leaning coworkers knew their Jazz - but that's already a long time ago...I don;t know enuff about young people now to venture a guess into their relation to Jazz, but my conjecture is that short attention spans & dumbing down won the culture wars - for now...unless ever-better access to everything has done anything in the positive...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/21/17 9:35am doctorjazz:

Bowie always had this fabulous tone and energy /humor in his playing and music. Was fun to see in the lab coat.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/21/17 9:49am doctorjazz:

OK, looks really nice out there, time for Ozzie walk. Listening On The phone app.
There's a real house sound to this Nessa stuff, from listening for a short while...
Avatar    Sun. 5/21/17 9:52am holland oats:

that cd comp needs some vinyl love
Avatar Sun. 5/21/17 9:53am northguineahills:

I haven't seen to any live music since I left NYC, but most jazz/improv shows had a healthy mix of people of all ages (if 20-somethings count as being young-uns), but as opposed to other genres, more people w/ a preponderance of gray are more visible.... (I'm 41, and I have a dozen gray hairs, they first came in last year).

Air... Another great band of the time...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/21/17 10:02am doctorjazz:

Pity about the vinyl, would be nice to have it available that way ď think this is the one Air album I don't have...)
Avatar    Sun. 5/21/17 10:06am fred:

@doctorjazz: I'm indebted to Jeff again for introducing me to the good Air. Otherwise your statement would have been very puzzling
Avatar    Sun. 5/21/17 10:07am Jeff Golick:

There are a surprising number of bands named Air. (Or maybe not so surprising.)

(@fred: that's music to my ears.)
  Sun. 5/21/17 10:08am Dean:

Not so many named Err.

To be fair, I'm being bigoted about the French Air: I so dislike where they're from that I never really listened attentively to their music
Avatar    Sun. 5/21/17 10:17am Jeff Golick:

Where are they from??
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/21/17 10:18am doctorjazz:

This particular Air had great albums, mixed free music with traditional Jazz, and was fabulous live (I'd still go hear Threadgill any time, though he's obviously not a young fellow now. Was at an ASCAP tribute to him, others played his music, but he didn't play. He does still gig, though, I think

Avatar    Sun. 5/21/17 10:20am Jeff Golick:

Hi, @glenn, and thanks. I had them as French...guessing @fred's views are attached to a more specific region.

Interesting that Marsh fit into the Nessa sound.

Yeah, it was alright! Thanks.

@melinda: very conservative and christian city. The small-mindedness teared up the mind of my best friend decades ago, because stuffing her with drugs was better than facing social embarrassment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/21/17 10:37am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Trane-ish w/ some Ornette lines - kind of a Milesish band & arrangement? Today I learn the name 'Fred Anderson' & take another little pleasant step down the path of my leafy verdant ignorance in Jazz...

Ooof that sounds rough, @fred.

A local show in boston uses snurdy McGurdy for a promo and it's impossible for me to hear without wondering where the vocal part is now.

Hiya, @Jesse k!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/21/17 10:50am doctorjazz:

Marsh was also on what some consider the 1st free jazz improvisation in the 40's, with Lennie Tristano
(from Wikipedia...

The quintet that recorded "Intuition" was formed of leader Tristano, tenor saxophonist Warne Marsh, alto saxophonist Lee Konitz, guitarist Billy Bauer, and bassist Arnold Fishkin. Most of the members of this band had played free improvisations together previously.[3] May 16, 1949 was their third day as a band recording for Capitol Records, and Tristano decided to record some freely improvised playing.[4])
Avatar    Sun. 5/21/17 10:51am fred:

Was there a brief switch to the drummer bot or was a weird part of the track?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/21/17 10:52am doctorjazz:

I had the stream for a few seconds too.
Avatar    Sun. 5/21/17 10:52am Jeff Golick:

Oop. Thanks - stream cut in, I guess. No evidence here of anything significant...but pls keep me posted.

I'm hearing the krazy saxophone music (TKSM), so I'm assuming it's your show

Yes! Thanks, @Gary. Hellooooo, @Gary! How goes packing/moving?

so, i'm wondering if this is how Ericka sounds, or how she makes Roscoe feel...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/21/17 11:02am Stanley:

I dug that Roscoe Mitchell, too.

@coelacanth∅! Hi there. Only Ericka knows for sure.

@Gary: so dancing on the ceiling is your next option. Clearly.

(Bernice apparently had a much more calming effect.)

(Also, a Fred Anderson tune.)
  Sun. 5/21/17 11:08am Dean:

I heard it as Roscoe's attempt to practice while enumerating to Ericka the various chores for the day: get the oil changed, buy cigarettes, pay bills, wash the windows, and so forth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/21/17 11:09am doctorjazz:

Al right, gotta go, was a great show, thanks, Jeff! Great week all!

Bernice is Roscoe trying to remember Ericka's phone number 38 years later.

@Brian in UK! How goes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/21/17 11:12am Brian in UK:

But Erica did not have a telephone. Oh the dilemma.

Jeff, just bought a replacement bread making machine and it is not even my birthday. Life in the fast lane!
  Sun. 5/21/17 11:13am Dean:

What's the difference between bread and replacement bread? A David Gates spinoff band?
  Sun. 5/21/17 11:18am Dean:

The word "saga" always reminds me of "Portnoy's Complaint."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/21/17 11:20am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Replacement bread is what Tommy Stinson has to afford such a large tourbus...but now we are far afield...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/21/17 11:24am Brian in UK:

This is in fact the second replacement bread making machine; possibly making the first one irreplaceable. Enough doughy talk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/21/17 11:25am coelacanth∅:

i need a replacement bread making machine...or a time machine -either one.
  Sun. 5/21/17 11:26am Dean:

Is "replacement" a euphemism for "counterfeit"?
Avatar    Sun. 5/21/17 11:27am Jeff Golick:

I just need to make more bread.
  Sun. 5/21/17 11:28am Dean:

Heh, you said, "need"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/21/17 11:29am coelacanth∅:

but with a bread machine you don't knead...

Something something heel, something something crusty.

I'm here! Popping in to say hello while on my break from Triscuit manipulating. Sorry I missed Snurdy. One of my all-time faves.
  Sun. 5/21/17 11:40am Doug Schulkind:

I'm at work, so by definition, I'm making bread.
