Charles Mingus said jazz was a word invented to separate musicians from their money. Music for a Free World brings us together, drawing listeners to the healing power of smooth free jazz. Each week, surprise guests bring their own sides to spin and their instruments of choice to spontaneously jam.

Hello Dave and all. I think there's precedent for people playing on WFMU from a distance (Daniel Johnston and Yo La Tengo)

hey if Stockhausen can have people playing violins together whilst in different helikopters you guys can jam via telephone

@coel: I think a cello was also involved. Maybe I'm reading too much in your current name, but I met a member of Sunn O))) last month at a rudra veena concert
Avatar Sat. 11/9/19 2:25pm northguineahills:

@coel: at share.dj (that's an url) performances, we often have people jamming together from several continents online, and it's been going on for 16 years.....

Do you guys realize you're ruining long-running theories about the importance of eye contact and body language in improvisation?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 11/9/19 4:12pm Doug Schulkind:

I think they are making inner-eye contact, fred.

Coming up next on the Drummer Stream:

5-7pm, ET
SOMEDAY MATINEE with Gina Bacon
Live from Nashville, Tennessee
wfmu.org...

Gina's special guest will be singer/songwriter/producer/recording engineer Tommy Wiggins.

7-9pm, ET
FIVE MILES TO MIDNIGHT with The Knave
Live from Melbourne, Australia
wfmu.org...

The Knave's special live guest this evening will be Zoe Fox from Zoe Fox and The Rocket Clocks.

"Bringing together both forces of dark and light, space explorers, Zoë Fox and the Rocket Clocks launch into a mixed salad of psychedelic pop, enter time warps of soft lullabies and then blast into the future with classic disco tunes. It’s smart, memorable, pop songwriting delivered with an unforgettable vocal tone that swirls all around you one moment and cuts right through you the next. Old world sounds delivered with a modern twist."
