Evening Larry. Choices thus far have created a great start to the day here in Australia. Absolutely loved the Arthur Lee, never heard that version beforehand. Is it it from the Live DVD?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 7:20pm doctorjazz:

Cool! (but soul and funk will be fine with me as well).

(I think of Horace Silver being as much soul/funk as jazz)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 7:24pm Funky16Corners:

He was certainly influential in that regard, and went on to make some funky stuff when he had Andy Bey in the band
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 7:25pm Funky16Corners:

That Love: Forever Changes Concert album is really excellent. Top shelf presentation and Arthur was in great form

Avatar Thu. 12/21/17 7:36pm stevieg:

Tasteful. I got to meet Arthur Lee and Johnny Echols not long before Arthur passed. The band Love, or Baby Lemonade with Arthur and Johnny were appearing at a club in San Francisco and I got Johnny's and Arthur's autographs on the Live Forever Changes CD. I waited many years to see them and they did not disappoint.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 7:38pm Funky16Corners:

I only got to see Arthur once, at Maxwells in Hoboken, right before he went to prison. He was backed by the guys from Das Damen. Great show but he was a little paranoid.

Great Deli in Miltown NJ, go often, Lox, Stock and Deli.
2nd Avenue Deli in NYC (at the new location) is a great deli, but you need to take out a second mortgage before you go there.

There's a great series of Chet Baker sessions recorded in Italy where he does a bunch of Dameron's compositions

Maybe recorded in France, gotta pull them out

well, yeah. they had to hide the jewels and the leopard print under something.
Avatar Thu. 12/21/17 8:21pm still b/p:

When I think of Miami and places like Fontainebleau, I think of Gleason because of that skyline in his show open; and Sinatra...in 2015, the hotel made much ado with "100 days of unique programming" counting down to what would've been Franks 100th birthday.

I think in some ways, British composers of the 20th century had an influence on progressive rock and pop in the UK later on, if not directly, then indirectly as it passed through jazz. Like Debussy, Ravel, Milhaud and Stravinsky.

Leonard Cohen & Nico, I love it. Several years ago I was playing Leonard in the store where I work a few days before Christmas and a customer teased me about it, given the general trend of playing upbeat holiday music in retail environments. I could tell he appreciated the music but I was so out of it at the time that it hadn't occurred to me to play cheerful tunes.

Watching US politics play out from afar is akin to watching a regressive alien life form take hold. Sadly it will spread to other places giving greed riddled despots the confidence to follow suit (its beginning to happen here is Australia already). Hopefully the investigation into Trump bears fruit in the NY and he is sent packing, but what comes next (Pence) isn't exactly reason to celebrate. Troubling times my friends.

And they opened ANWR for drilly business, which would ordinarily be a higher profile fight, but in the greater tax racket and headlines and boisterous course to passage, it was not unknown or didn't go entirely unmentioned for objections, but was eclipsed.

Yeah, Australia, Canada, the UK, this crap is happening all over the world

Yes, he's just not as much of a bloviating goon. It's a purely cosmetic difference.

That last set was reminiscent of "Beaker Street," the old late-night free-form freakfest on WAAY, the old clear-channel AM radio station out of Little Rock. We heard it all the way up in Wisconsin on clear nights in the '70s.
Avatar Thu. 12/21/17 9:42pm glenn:

i know nothing about darondo, but they gotta be from philly, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 9:43pm Little Danny:

Had you on in the background as I put together my show, Larry. What joy!

Bay Area/Oakland. One guy. Darondo Pulliam.

Thanks Danny!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 9:44pm Funky16Corners:

@Jeff - You've mentioned that show before. Do you know if there are airchecks around?
Avatar Thu. 12/21/17 9:44pm glenn:

oh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 9:45pm Funky16Corners:

And I will take on "late night freeform freak fest"

well, oakland's the philly of the west coast.

i consciously don't give gold stars to everything i like; just what i strongly think i should further explore. it's out of hand as it is.
...but also, as i clickystar for my own purposes, i have no reason to do it for songs i already have in my collection (6 in the last set) or artists i'm already aware to explore.

Thanks, Larry and all.

I've been looking for Beaker Street airchecks from the early years, and unless they're in the hands of tight-fisted collectors, there aren't any.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 9:49pm Funky16Corners:

Thank you Geezerette for coming out to dig the sounds!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 9:49pm coelacanth∅:

haha, well, i long ago surpassed the point where the star system is of much use.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 9:50pm Uncle Michael:

When I say early days, I mean back when the show went on the air in '66.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/21/17 9:50pm Funky16Corners:

Danny, I'm going to try my best to come in on time at 10. Please bear with me if I'm a tad late. I'm not used to having a show after mine.

I've accepted some Scott Walker, but it's an accepted taste I have yet to fully acquire. I like his recent stuff.

UM is correct as a the pendant he is about Neu! (same thing w/ Talibam!).

Does the exclamation point mean we have to pronounce "Neu!" with enthusiasm?
