@Maggie
We flew out of Athens about half a day before the catastrophe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/27/18 9:24am Doug Schulkind:

@Brian in UK
There was a presence of a rembetika history on the island, but that may have been a retro thing and not an organic music from the early days.

@ausmanx: I am a transplanted Marylander, which means (as Doug can confirm) I am accustomed to hotter temperatures. But the Germanic fear of any moving air -- "voss dat a draft? CLOSE ALL VINDOWS IMMEDIATELY!" -- to say nothing of COOLED air makes the situation a different one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/27/18 9:27am ausmanx:

some of that greek stuff which was recorded early century by the greek migrants to NY was pretty amazing... who's the guy who documented and released a lot of it?

Nothing is confirmed, but many are saying that the fires are suspicious. There seem to have been a number of them that started simultaneously in different locations. Greece has a whole sordid history with arson. It's not pretty.

Yeah, forest arson for profit is a thing in Greece and has been for decades, sadly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/27/18 9:38am Sem:

Felt a shooter of "12" was a good palate cleanser, perhaps only because I'd had several before this realization struck me.

Bottom line: ouzo does not lead to good decisions, but does enhance the feeling of a Zorba the Greek experience.

@Mr C guess he might have known Terence Boylan at Bard. B & F's first recording were backing him on his solo album, Alias Boona.

Hold onto your hearts, my dear listeners, or they may levitate out of sight. Some joy-drenched sounds in this last set.

Speaking of joy drenched, Hinky Dinky Time with Uncle Michael is up next on the Drummer Stream. Grab a towel and listen!

so apparently i'm learning the name of someone i've heard the music of for at least 35 years, 35 years after he died.

Thanks Doug, welcome back to Ekaya, as Abdullah Ibrahim would say.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/27/18 11:43am coelacanth∅:

Thank you Doug. i hate that though! i've always been such a geek - reading and retaining every spec of information on album covers since i was little; yet sometimes they still slip by.
...i wonder if any of the Hugh Masekela albums i've had since the mid 70s have Kippie on them. then it's more like 45 years.

Hey everyone, when you're done enjoying Hinky Dinky Time, head over to the WFMU mothership. DJ Monica is filling in for Sheila B, 3-6pm (ET)!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/27/18 11:46am Doug Schulkind:

@coelacanth∅
None of the records by Masakela as a leader. They played together plenty, but only before Hugh left South Africa. The key record to seek out is The Jazz Epistles - Jazz Epistle-Verse 1
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/27/18 11:48am coelacanth∅:

i was just reading about that! www.npr.org...
i bookmarked it for later. (i have to work soon) but Thanks. that's what i was wondering.

Yep, that's it! That's them!

(somehow i got turned on to Masekela at a very young age)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/27/18 11:51am coelacanth∅:

actually that article is great so far; but i should get Hugh's book,really.

Good luck with the job interview.

Hey, I just noticed that you played something by Allen Kwela -- I think I met a musician by that name once, years ago in NYC. Is that possible?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/27/18 11:56am Brian in UK:

Oh dear Dollard Brand is no dullard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/27/18 11:56am Doug Schulkind:

Dollar Brand gave Kippie the nickname "Bra Joe from Kilimanjaro" and would often introduce him that way on stage.

that was me asking about A Kwela. Still jet lagged.

curious name, as he wasn't from Tanzania (or Kenya), or did I miss that bit about his bio....
