Postwar atmospherica. High bop modernism and Afro-Latin sounds, twilight exotica and soundtrack moods, soul stompers and weepers, hypnotic R&B and blues, mystical '60s pop, lonely country, lonelier rock 'n' roll, instrumental weirdness, electronic creaking. Bringing worlds beyond into the worlds at hand.

Hiya Danny & all other flamers. Very heavy headed on this day. Long session mourning the monumental losses of Mark E Smith & Hugh Masekela last night. They will both be missed in my orbit. I'll be sitting quietly up the back.

Hi Zonk! These things seem to come in waves, no? So glad to have you, even if you're at the back of the class

Beautiful segue,Danny. :)

Glad you're home safe from your trip, Coel.

Thanks geez! I'm so stoked any time the segues come through

Cheers Danny, had this drunken vision not so many hours ago of Joe Frank & MES arguing over the cab fare at the pearly gates, much to my buddies amusement. Those two would indulge in great conversation I'm sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/25/18 10:16pm Little Danny:

That's an amazing vision, zonk. My drunken visions (back when I really drank) mostly involved a lot of bad ideas

Twas a very strange evening.

This Popol Vuh track is lovely.
Hi all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/25/18 10:26pm Little Danny:

Doctor! I agree. I know like 5% of Popul Vuh's catalog
  Thu. 1/25/18 10:28pm zonk ludlow:

You've obviously tapped into a gorgeous 5%.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/25/18 10:29pm doctorjazz:

That's 5% more than I do...

Reminds me, Eddie Palmieri is playing in Jersey, think I have to pick me up some tickets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/25/18 11:03pm Little Danny:

I would love to see Palmieri. Go see him while he's still kicking!

g Thanks for the well wishes (10.11) i've just got the unusually heavy sofa off my car roof and into the house. it took 2 people 50 minutes and
...it doesn't fit!
-i think i'll have a drink.

That 'Manhattan Latin' lp is one I've seen people discuss, never heard anything off of it before tonight. Pretty cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/25/18 11:05pm hyde:

a brief hello. have that drink, coel.
  Thu. 1/25/18 11:05pm Dean:

Heard Palmieri at Yoshi's in Oakland, and yeah, he was cooking. Probably thirteen years ago or so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/25/18 11:08pm JtotheK:

you can call him ray, or you can call him jay ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/25/18 11:09pm doctorjazz:

Yeah, seems a no brainer, line up some folks to catch him (doesn't say what context he's playing in, solo, small band, guessing not a big band or it would say. Never have seen him...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/25/18 11:11pm doctorjazz:

This Saturday night, will see Roscoe Mitchell with the Matthew Shipp trio, should be fun!
Gotta crash, work is rediculously busy, need my beauty sleep, bye all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/25/18 11:11pm coelacanth∅:

...i don't know much of popol vuh either; maybe 15-20%? i really don't know...but i really like the album "in den gärten pharaos/aguirre", which is 2 albums now available as one release, is a favorite of mine. the 2 albums are each short and they work together...if anyone's interested.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/25/18 11:12pm coelacanth∅:

hey hyde!

@coel: I think I know that album/s at least digitally, gotta check
  Thu. 1/25/18 11:22pm Dean:

A 1990 Chicago Tribune article refers to Byrd as "the Satchmo of the steel guitar."

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/25/18 11:27pm coelacanth∅:

it's so obvious the influence for the Hal Davis track... beyond "just influence"; but it's still worth it! very good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/25/18 11:28pm JtotheK:

great ordells track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/25/18 11:29pm Little Danny:

Anything influenced by the Flamingos' "I Only Have Eyes..." is gonna merit some interest around here
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/25/18 11:30pm Little Danny:

Do you know anything about the Ordells, Jason? I'm coming up empty-handed
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/25/18 11:32pm coelacanth∅:

...and i was looking to see what album that o'jays track might've appeared on, and i confess i had no idea they had 29 studio albums. i have 4 and i thought i had a respectable representation haha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/25/18 11:32pm JtotheK:

i know the flip of sippin' is a groovy instrumental track...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/25/18 11:33pm JtotheK:

. . . and my (admittedly brief) internet research just now finds that Give The Drummer's own Funky 16 Corners has a blog entry for "sippin' a cup of coffee".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/25/18 11:33pm Little Danny:

@coel: oh man they recorded so much. Talk about knowing about 5% of a discography
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/25/18 11:34pm coelacanth∅:

i liked the ordells song too. never heard of them before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/25/18 11:34pm JtotheK:

From F16C blog: "The Ordells 45 was released in 1967 and as far as I can tell they never recorded another note. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to discover that they had nothing at all to do with the instrumental, which leaves us with one, absolutely incredible performance, committed to vinyl and then largely forgotten.

I have seen several references that indicate that ‘Sippin’ a Cup of Coffee’ has similarly affected many others, and that it may have something of a lowrider following, but aside from that, it remains the property of soul collectors."

Thanks for the research Jason!
  Thu. 1/25/18 11:39pm Dean:

I'm finding references in, e.g., Billboard, to Richard Rome, the arranger. In 1968 he formed Allert Prods. with Al Martino's personal manager.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/25/18 11:39pm JtotheK:

we owe larry (permanent, ongoing) thanks for his fantastic blog!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/25/18 11:39pm coelacanth∅:

it always makes me sad. somebody lied; record company had no faith; no capital; somebody didn't come through; had to get on with life....who knows what might've been.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/25/18 11:41pm Little Danny:

@dean: Yeah Rome was a pretty steady Philly-area arranger/composer type. I think he was Philly area
  Thu. 1/25/18 11:41pm Dean:

Curiously, also in '68, he set up a prod'n co., Producers, Inc., with a fellow named Brooks Odell...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/25/18 11:41pm JtotheK:

this axelrod album is one that i don't tire of.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/25/18 11:42pm JtotheK:

@dean - brooks odell sounded familiar ... and it's because i have a 45 of his, 'watch your step' on gold records.
  Thu. 1/25/18 11:43pm Dean:

Yes, evidently Odell was quite prolific. Coincidence, I assume. Rome must have been Philly area.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/25/18 11:45pm JtotheK:

@dean -- off topic, but i did enjoy the nixon book you suggested. i chuckled picturing him on a profane tirade while listening to 'victory at sea'.
  Thu. 1/25/18 11:47pm Dean:

Good to hear, @JtotheK! Lotsa chuckle (or weep) moments in that one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/25/18 11:48pm JtotheK:

yeah, i was hoping the author would have made up a story about Nixon putting Quaker Oats on his enemy list because they refused to admit he was the model for the 'Quaker Oats' guy on the container.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/25/18 11:51pm JtotheK:

back to the Ordells ... scrolling down on the F16C blog finds this comment: "The song was co-written by Lee Andrews and sang by The Ordells. The lead was superbly delivered by the late Henry (need Ronald) Eleby, backed by Moses (nee Thomas) Eleby, Thomas Matthews, Archie and Clifford (last names not known). As you correctly stated, they didn’t record
another song, although they were at least as good as the more well known Philadelphia groups and more polished than most. Sadly, through bad management, it all fell apart not long after the release of the song. Ronald was briefly recruited by Motown to replace the late great Eddie Kendricks before they finally went with Damon Harris (again management). I am proud to say that I am the youngest brother of Ronnie and Tommy Eleby."
