OK: J.M.K.E. = (Estonian) acronym for *Jalaga Munadesse Kogu Energiaga* (Thanks, G**gle, Estonian version.) And the English is: *Foot to the Eggs to Whole Energy*. Showing us once again that understanding other languages idiomatically is a consistently puzzling trip down WTF Highway..

Did a little language study before three weeks in Budapest. So as you likely know, @ngh, it's 2 closest pals are Finnish and Estonian. Understood nothing at all the entire time. Liberating, in a way.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 5:08pm northguineahills:

@Sem Chumbo: It could be worse, it could be Basque. At least Hungarian and Finnish are VERY distantly related to each other, and tentatively related to the distant northern Uralic indigenous peoples. Basque, has no know linguistic relations.

Yes, there have been all sorts of spurious and hopeful theories about Basque, but none ever added up to much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 5:13pm Sem Chumbo:

Yes, the origins of Basques is a puzzle to me, and it seems nobody w/ serious language origin chops will even hazard a guess. Gotta love that.

Well, I picked the wrong day to leave my umbrella in my car (thunderstorm outside).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 5:15pm David D:

Everyone is so used to Indo-European languages being linked to each other that it seems odd for a language to be alone. But it makes sense that some languages will remain isolated in an area taken over by another group of languages.

Hey Sem. Your penchant for berets and the extent you go to procure the authentic beret is well known. Here the old fellas just wear them any old way until the things fall apart.

You want Basque? You get Basque...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 5:18pm Sem Chumbo:

Likewise, Stanley. I only took up finding a replacement beret when a jumble sale beauty went to pieces on me after 26 years of pretty well daily service. So much to learn about felted wool, eh?

They like it very much and having had a house here for over twenty five years they're pretty integrated and have many friends. It's at the foot of the Pyrenees, a very beautiful part of the world. They came out to live permanently about seven years ago.

Libraries have definitely been connected to a lot of people's personal liberation over the years!

Who's the mandolin, Andy Starman?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 7:49pm doctorjazz:

(Statman...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 7:53pm doctorjazz:

Looked it up, it is Andy Statman, one of a kind Klezmer /jazz/bluegrass player, thought it sounded like him...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 7:59pm David D:

Yes, definitely Statman - I was just trying to remember if he played the clarinet on that track as was listed on the album notes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 7:59pm David D:

And yes, he is fantastic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 8:02pm David D:

Another klezmish tie-in coming up soon...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 8:23pm David D:

Last one - for those who have braved all the others...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 8:44pm doctorjazz:

What time is it over there, almost 2?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 8:45pm Webhamster Henry:

I haven't been posting, but I have been listening! What a wacky set that was!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 8:47pm doctorjazz:

Love this Reagan track!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 8:47pm Webhamster Henry:

Andy Statman used to sit in with (late WFMU DJ) Citizen Kafka and the Wretched Refuse String Band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 8:49pm doctorjazz:

I went to Brooklyn College when some of the Wretched Refuse String Band members went there as well, they used to play around campus, always loved to hear them (own the original album they released).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 8:50pm David D:

Wow, that is an interesting connection. And thanks for joining me on the Bella Ciao journey!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 8:51pm David D:

Coming up on 3am here...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 8:55pm doctorjazz:

Statman started out playing bluegrass as the "Charlie Parker of the of the mandolin", came to Klezmer and clarinet (and orthodox Judaism) later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 8:55pm doctorjazz:

Mingus x 2, nice...

Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:01pm David D:

It would be interesting to hear more about his personal journey there (Statman).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:04pm doctorjazz:

He became a "baal te'shuva", that is sort of (not exactly) born again, grew a long beard, went mystical.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:05pm doctorjazz:

Jim Hall on guitar on the Chico Hamilton track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:06pm David D:

It would be interesting to know how his music fit into that and vice-versa.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:08pm doctorjazz:

He was playing a very spiritual, mystical, Coltrane influenced version of Klezmer on clarinet at one point, grew out of his religious journey, or so I've read.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:09pm doctorjazz:

And, really intense, late Trane kind of sound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:10pm doctorjazz:

{Kim played something from On The Corner yesterday, nice to hear more!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:10pm David D:

Gotta dig deeper into that...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:11pm David D:

The choir in Studio 2 here is now getting really loud.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:14pm Webhamster Henry:

Statman would be a living national treasure if he were Japanese!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:18pm David D:

Do you think that would help?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:19pm doctorjazz:

Great set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:21pm David D:

Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:23pm doctorjazz:

I have some of his stuff, definitely the earlier stuff (but on vinyl), some cd's as well (but, can I find them is another question...). I'll look around for you David.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:24pm David D:

That would be great!

Wadada Leo Smith!

How was your pint?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:27pm northguineahills:

I got a job offer to do GIS for Facebook in NYC. It would pay 3x what I make now, but it would be like working for Evil Corp. in Mr. Robot. I love my current job, my dream job, but my wife wants me to take the FB job for two obvious reasons (pay and being back in NYC). I'm saying, no".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:27pm David D:

Wow, that is a dilemma.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:28pm northguineahills:

There are some good microbreweries here in north-central FL, they've upped their game!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:28pm David D:

@Henry: Your allusion finally sunk in. It's late!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:29pm northguineahills:

(Mrs. ngh hasn't gotten back to me since I told her my decision).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:30pm doctorjazz:

Tough call (actually doesn't sound like it's tough to you at all, NGH, sounds like you're in a good place, home relations can complicate stuff though) Good luck!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:37pm northguineahills:

Thanks doctorjazz, I'm done w/ the corporate world. I have the freedom to create my own department from the ground up. The VP drove up 3 hours from the home office to see me (everyone else was on vacation) to ask me about GIS, and my visions of the future of creating a database and geoserver. All of my spending requests were granted. Like everyone else in my company, she was chill as fuck, so, I wasn't nervous through the 5 hour interaction. There's no way I'd trade agency for cash, I love what I'm doing now and what I'll be creating in the future. Fuck FB and their 6 digit salary (says the guy who recently went totally broke)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:42pm doctorjazz:

Omer Avital is a favorite of mine!

Who knows, NGH, if things pan out, may wind up doing as well as the FB gig. The stress differential could be worth it even if not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:43pm northguineahills:

(I literally had to borrow money from a friend for cab fare to get to LaGuardia to get to FL) Where were these offers (2nd in two weeks) when I needed them).

Omer Avital, new to me, don't know the background. Digdug.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:43pm doctorjazz:

This is a great album, seen Avital live a few times. Seems to be a descendant of Mingus musically.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:45pm northguineahills:

Being able to set your own schedule, is worth $$$ unto itself. I've been asked to help curate an open-minded concert series that has international artists coming through this little burg, so, I think I'm staying put (plus, I need to record w/ my band!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:47pm Webhamster Henry:

@ngh I'm more or less in the same boat, except Facebook isn't asking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:47pm doctorjazz:

Did your band move down as well?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:48pm Webhamster Henry:

The corporate world is fine until they decide they want to can your department.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:48pm doctorjazz:

Ahhh, Nina..
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:48pm northguineahills:

@doctorjazz, you're straight up correct about the stress.

New band, but I'll play w/ the olf one when I'm back in NYC, we're close friends.

@Webhamster Henry: That's exactly what happened when DeBlasio was elected, my project at the office of emergency management was cancelled (not specifically due to him, but b/c the budget was slashed for the dept).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 11/21/17 9:51pm David D:
