For having such a basic structure with lots of air in it, I end up hearing more stuff in Hipnosis every time. After years of it, the thing still opens up like a bizarre little flower in the sun...

I like this little excursion into Give The Drummer / Transpacific land.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/19/18 9:46am PKNY:

Thanks for breaking out this Pharoah record, reminds me I need to add it back into my regular listening rotation. Something about the bells (especially on "Prince of Peace") make a good sonic fit over the holiday season.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/19/18 9:49am Ken From Hyde Park:

Ow! Gave myself a minor paper cut on my upper lip as I lick an envelope too hurriedly. Why do things that happen to stupid people always keep happening to me?!?!?

@Scott - I have picked up a relatively cheap Japanese Strata-East repress of "Izipho Zam" at the FMU record show a few years back, glad I jumped on it when I did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/19/18 10:08am Scott McDowell:

Oh that's cool, was not aware there were reissues floating around until recently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/19/18 10:12am PKNY:

At work so I don't have it handy, but according to Discogs, it's a mid-1990s repress --> www.discogs.com...

Morning, Scott and all!
Late thanks for the Dirty Three, who Scott W and I were talking about just last night!
  Wed. 12/19/18 10:27am Listener Gregory:

This Elkhorn is one of those pieces that I hear for N minutes without noticing, and then suddenly think, "Whoa."
  Wed. 12/19/18 10:28am Listener Gregory:

That was my exact thought, by the way.
  Wed. 12/19/18 10:29am Kiefer:

Just joining now...killer playlist, Scott! Psyched to go back for the archive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/19/18 10:31am Ken From Hyde Park:

Anyone still hankerin' for more jam can check out the recent Avant Ghetto featuring the band Scratch Ticket. www.wfmu.org... I thought it was great.

This picks up where th AA of C left off..
  Wed. 12/19/18 10:53am Listener Gregory:

I'm not sure what instrument Ware is playing. It sounds nasal like a soprano but doesn't seem pitched that high.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/19/18 10:56am tim from champaign:

Howdy everyone. Just jumped in the waters. Looks like I've missed an excellent show so far. I thirdly concur that Jim White is the best. I think his mustachio makes him an even better drummer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/19/18 10:57am jt:

"The Balance" ...good to hear music like that is being made with the intensity like before but still new....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/19/18 10:58am northguineahills:

RIP David Ware. Got to see him once at the Pink Pony....

David S. Ware and Bill Evans were both from Plainfield, NJ. (Thanks to Clay Pigeon for the municipal spotlight on Plainfield a few shows back!)

As I said to Scott W: Jim is as loose as I am uptight. It's gonna take some serious life changes…

I got to the "E"s in my queue and was listening to Bill Evans this weekend (Only took 16 months).

YettI Bob: thanks for the invaluable information. All I got from current town is Tom Petty, Bo Diddley, and some ska and emo-core bands to work w/ (and I'm just using musicians form at least 20+ years ago).
  Wed. 12/19/18 11:39am Mr. Palchepo.:

Great program this morning!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/19/18 11:39am northguineahills:

Sam Rivers, relocated from NYC to Orlando, I got to see him many times as an undergrad, as he was one of the few jazz greats that would play around. He brought Mathew Shipp and William Parker w/ him on one tour (first time I saw all of the aforementioned), and it brought me out of my indie ghetto when I was 19)
Avatar Wed. 12/19/18 11:39am dk:

i clearly have biases to overcome, because i thought "oooh, this is nice", saw it was brubeck, and thought twice about commenting to that effect. so, in the name of overcoming biases: ooh, this brubeck thing is nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/19/18 11:44am mb:

Must roll on. Superb selections today DJ Scott McDowell. Thank-you
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/19/18 11:45am tim from champaign:

@dk - I hear you and have felt similarly. I'm not one for straight jazz but at some point I realized that Dave Brubeck is actually pretty interesting and enjoyable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/19/18 11:45am steveo:

Digging Brubeck Quartet. Not used to hearing so few beats per measure from them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/19/18 11:46am northguineahills:

@dk: WFMU helped me overcome my predicerned biases. I'm more open minded b/c of it.
Avatar Wed. 12/19/18 11:49am YETI BOB:

Take 4!
Avatar Wed. 12/19/18 11:50am dk:

me too, northguineahills. what's great is that after literally decades of obsessive listening, i've still got preconceptions like that and the FMU DJs KEEP kicking them down.

so, thanks scott!

Heck, even Clay Pigeon has made me reevaluate 90s bands I hated the first time around.

clay plays some serious gems
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/19/18 11:54am tim from champaign:

@ngh - which bands? Last year I did an experiment with myself to check out 90s major label albums that I had ignored back then (ie Butthole Surfers, Meat Puppets, etc) Some were better than I expected and some really stunk.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/19/18 11:56am northguineahills:

@tim: your aforementioned were respected, but not on my listening list until the last few years, the only one I can think of now is Hole, was I disassociated the personality of the lead singer.

very enjoyable show to me; thanks DJ Scott
