I'm up for a caravan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 4:04pm Sem:

Just a traveler in a caravan, that's me. Hello, David, Dr. J.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 4:05pm David D:

Hey Doc and Sem! Lots of caravaning to come...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 4:06pm Stanley:

Hi David. How's the weather over your way? We're heading to -5C and 15cm of snow tonight here in Edinburgh. It's going to be bloody freezing in this old caravan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 4:09pm David D:

Yes, the winter is striking back here too, Stanley. Hope everyone is keeping warm on this end of the caravan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 4:09pm northguineahills:

Once upon a time, a while back, someone did a set nothing but Caravan versions. It's going to kill me until I realize who it was. (Or maybe Doug just did a set's worth, ack!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 4:10pm David D:

NGH: What a good idea!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 4:10pm northguineahills:

It's a sunny cool 75F/24C here in Gainesville (the coolest it's been in two weeks.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 4:13pm David D:

Well the winter has generally been mild here so far so we shouldn't complain - too much.
  Tue. 2/27/18 4:14pm Dean:

Steinski did a "Caravan" show in 2012: https://wfmu.org/playlists/shows/47178

Nice in Jersey and NY, 55 degrees F (13C).
End of the weather report!

Read a review this morning of a new recording of Rachmaninov's All-Night Vigil, performed at Paul-Gerhardt-Kirche in Leipzig. Glowing review.

  Tue. 2/27/18 4:29pm Dean:

Contender for best cover of *the* "Caravan": Claw Hammer on their '96 'Scuse the Excursion EP, the cover of which is a parody of the cover of The Stranglers' Black and White, go figure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 4:30pm northguineahills:

"Mississippi Goddamn".... Fuck yeah!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 4:31pm northguineahills:

Dean, that might have been it. I knew it was on this stream. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 4:32pm David D:

Thanks, Dean. My wife sings in that church's choir in fact.
  Tue. 2/27/18 4:32pm Dean:

Just as Uncle Michael now opens his program with a tune, "My Hometown," with lyrics altered to recognize a different hometown each week, this tune might be fun to "version": West Covina Goddam, Fort Lauderdale Goddam, Green Bay Goddam, Albuquerque Goddam...
Avatar Tue. 2/27/18 4:33pm still b/p:

Not sure I ever....don't know why..heard this until in the Nina documentary. Now heard it a couple of times on FMU in just the couple weeks since I watched it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 4:33pm Parq:

Turns out she was right.
  Tue. 2/27/18 4:33pm Dean:

Hardly an issue of Fanfare misses at least one reference to Leipzig, usually due to the composers who spent time there. The church looks gorgeous.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 4:36pm northguineahills:

I once djed at a certain club in the East Village, Phil Och's "here's to the state of Mississippi", and the barkeep and barback got pissed and made me change the record (they were from MS). they were cool people otherwise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 4:38pm David D:

The church has an interesting wooden ceiling in fact, rather unique. Not really a place tourists go, however.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 4:38pm Parq:

NGH, preferable to what happened to ol' Neil Young.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 4:40pm northguineahills:

I mentioned earlier, I just realized I have an autographed copy of Majory Stoneman Douglass', "The Everglades, River of Grass" (pub: 1947) in my home library. It took a way too long to make the connection between her and the school named after her.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 4:43pm Sem:

Many thanks for the Nina Simone set, David. A great treat just now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 4:45pm David D:

Glad you're enjoying it Sem. And greetings Parq and still b/p!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 4:53pm northguineahills:

Ok, never had heard a Finnish version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 4:57pm Webhamster Henry:

Trouble did a Nina set last week too. Never enough Nina!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 4:58pm Parq:

Wait, the Nina version of "Misunderstood" was first? In all these years, I never knew that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 5:05pm David D:

Yes, she beat them by a year in fact.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 5:06pm David D:

Henry - I agree entirely. I'll have to look for hers as well...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 5:07pm Stanley:

The unmistakable golden voice of Sam Mangwana.
Nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 5:08pm doctorjazz:

Give me these jangly African guitars any time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 5:09pm doctorjazz:

(had to step out, missed the Nina Simone set, darn!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 5:16pm Parq:

The thing is, I always thought it was really shrewd of Nina to cover the Animals. Don't think the Animals get the same props for covering Nina -- who wouldn't?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 5:22pm doctorjazz:

Just stringin' us along!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 5:26pm kuba:

last song was a nice soundtrack for my current (failing) mission: to find concise german translations for FABRIC (keeping metaphoric connotations alive) and RIPPLES (as in sand, dunes). gesundheit, everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 5:28pm northguineahills:

I put way too much habanero in this salsa verde,,,,, see y'all when I recover!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 5:32pm David D:

Hey Kuba - sounds like quite a challenge, yikes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 5:33pm northguineahills:

dancing b/c of the music, and b/c my face/body is on fire and I can see through time....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 5:33pm David D:

NGH: Any beer around?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 5:34pm doctorjazz:

Not familiar with David Young, nice track.

Yes, a new find for me too - so much out there to discover.
  Tue. 2/27/18 5:41pm Dean:

Several years ago a buddy gave me a batch of fresh Habaneros his father had grown. I promptly ate a fresh one. It was yummy. Two weeks later I returned to the batch and consumed a dried one. It was caustic.

This Adler Trio was recorded live at LA's Harbor College, nine years after Richard Grossman's trio recorded there two tracks appearing on "Where the Sky Ended."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 5:49pm doctorjazz:

Another name I'm not familiar, nice track (losing my jazz cred, OMG!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 5:56pm Sem:

Looks lie the end of the ride for me. Thank you, DD, hope to see you and all riders next time. G'night,
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 5:58pm Stanley:

Me, too. Same station as Sem.
Keep rolling along everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 6:04pm doctorjazz:

Time to join the caravan back to Jersey, homeward bound!
Thanks David! Great show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 6:06pm David D:

Thanks Sem, Stanley, and Doctorjazz - have a good night!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 6:09pm Parq:

Well, I was going to do some work downstairs, but I can't leave during *this* set.
Avatar Tue. 2/27/18 6:21pm antiparticle:

Well, I definitely continue to not like jazz, haha... looking forward to the next set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 6:26pm βrian:

Whew, I made it. (Got stuck on the bus-way.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 6:27pm Parq:

There's a different, less produced take of Brigitte's version, on this album:
www.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 6:27pm David D:

Glad you could stick around, Parq. Happy you're there, antip. And welcome, βrian!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 6:31pm βrian:

"Caravan" has always had vaguely exotic connotations to me. But I understand it has a more pedestrian meaning in the UK: "Trailer." Hmm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 6:35pm Parq:

Grace Jones on that take? Okay, that explains it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 6:36pm βrian:

It's 12C on the isthmus right now. That's crazy! I'm breaking out the rosé and lawn chairs even though it's getting dark.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 6:38pm David D:

Hitting -12C here tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 6:39pm David D:

Brass battle in progress: You choose!
Avatar Tue. 2/27/18 6:41pm antiparticle:

This all reminds me so much of Beats Antique!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 6:43pm βrian:

It's warmer in Madison than Montpellier! Totes cog diss.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 6:45pm βrian:

None of this music calls to mind an Airstream, thankfully.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 6:47pm David D:

Hope the weather stays warm over there for a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 6:47pm Parq:

βrian, I drink rosé all year 'round, nuff said.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 6:49pm Parq:

Can you get the Spanish rosé in the UK? The wine that's so dark it looks like red wine? Man, I love that stuff, but I've seen it in NYC only once, years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 6:51pm βrian:

@Parq: I confess I do, too. Though never for breakfast.

I tend to favor the Rosés of Provence, but that may be due to time spent there as a wild-eyed youngster.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 6:53pm βrian:

[But this βrian, fwiw, is in Wisconsin.]
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 6:54pm David D:

A rosé by any other name...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 6:55pm βrian:

I'd love to receive the gift of a bouquet of rosés.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 6:56pm Parq:

Super show, David. I do some volunteering during 'thon. I hope to get to meet you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 6:57pm βrian:

Oh no. The Subway is about to go underground again.

Well, thanks, David D.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/27/18 6:58pm βrian:

Hmm. That's bar time in WI.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/27/18 7:00pm David D:
