Hey engineer extraordinaire, Irene! 😊
  12:07pm Peter K.:

I had forgotten what a beautiful song "Pleasures of the Harbor" is!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 12:08pm Brian in UK:

Irene, the strings on Pleasure sounds much more forward than on my old A&M copy.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 12:09pm Andrew in Toronto:

Hi David (in London).
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 12:09pm Andrew in Toronto:

That`s true Sean.

It's a McGasko-Trudel kinda day. I like it.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 12:20pm David (in London):

Hey TDK.
Avatar 🥁 12:21pm TonyR:

McGasko did a generous Henske set. DIdn't know of her before today. (If I had a nickel for every passing great I didn't know of without WFMU...)
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Hey TDK, Hyperdose, TonyR, Brian in UK
Avatar 🥁 12:22pm TDK60:

Hiya David, Sean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Irene Trudel:

Hi TDK60! There's always the archives. UKBrian, the version of Pleasures I played came from a best of compilation, so maybe there was some remastering involved.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Splendid, splendid set to get the proceedings of this most awesome programme going, Irene
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm Irene Trudel:

And TonyR, thought I needed to mention Judy's passing as well. A couple of birthdays to acknowledge in today's show too.
  12:28pm Peter K.:

I would say this is a magnificent first set -- but that would be stating the obvious, wouldn't it? Irene's sets are never less than magnificent. (Some are inevitably better than others, though. This one is transcendent.)
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 12:29pm doctorjazz:

My man, Abdullah Ibrahim, love his music, seen him more times than I can count!
Hi Irene and all you out there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30pm Irene Trudel:

Aw, thanks Peter and Sean! Glad to drop in a little Abdullah, doctorjazz.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm unpopularfred:

Is that the sadly, recently late Ron Miles on trumpet?
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Doctorjazz, how are you,sir?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm Irene Trudel:

unpopularfred, it is Ron Miles. Didn't know about his passing. This death thing is a little too much sometimes...
  12:35pm David in London:

Hey doctorjazz.

Wasn't Frisell just in concert in the NYC area?
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 12:50pm Michael 98145:

Rhino on the loose www.bos-art.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm Irene Trudel:

Same to you, Michael! doctorjazz, it think Bill was here recently. I know of a show he's doing in NYC mid-June but can't mention details yet (something I'm involved with).
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 12:59pm doctorjazz:

Is he on cello?
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:00pm steveo:

[vigorous applause]
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03pm Irene Trudel:

Ron was on piccolo bass for that last one. And a few hand claps for joining us, steveo!
  1:04pm Peter K.:

Doctorjazz, he was playing piccolo bass on that track (hence the name of the album). If Wikipedia is to be believed, that's a bass that "has been tuned to a higher frequency, usually one octave higher than conventional bass tuning." The bassist in this quartet was Buster Williams.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:04pm steveo:

oh yes, hello :)
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:06pm doctorjazz:

Saw this Hall/Carter duet years back, they had a regular gig in some West Village restaurant.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:07pm doctorjazz:

Thanks, Peter!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:11pm zzz:

hi Irene and all! just signing on, when i see a playlist like this for someone who's been around as long as Ron Carter I get a little worried, happy to see it was his 85th bday a couple days ago!!

sounded like there was a little bass lick earlier in "a small ballad" that was sampled in a familiar hiphop tune, gonna give it a look to see
  1:12pm Mark R:

Such beautiful sounds on this warm, sunny May afternoon. Thanks for providing the perfect soundtrack, Irene
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks zzz and Mark R. Just giving a little love to Ron for his birthday last week.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:21pm doctorjazz:

What zzz said @1:11-always get nervous when I see an artist featured, nice to have a birthday celebration with NO bad news attached!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:24pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

hey Irene, hi, palz!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:25pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Hey Baba Bee
  1:26pm David in London:

Mx Beekins! Ahoy.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:26pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

hello, Sean, hope you are well today!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:26pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

Davidkins! Well met!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:28pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Baba Bee, if I can get an avatar of my pup, Lola dancing in the theme of your dancing dude I am a happy chap. This will be my future project!
Avatar 1:28pm HyperDose:

MxBB! :D
  1:29pm Peter K.:

The booklet notes make it very hard to figure out, but the pianist on "A Small Ballad" is actually Bob James. I think.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:32pm Michael 98145:

enjoying this Southwest soothing moment
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:32pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

oh, no, Bryce! I am sure the WFMU community will do all we can to help him.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Sean in Bristol UK:

NHS, under pressure but they have done a wonderful job
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:33pm zzz:

HBD to the wonderful Carla Bley!!!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:34pm zzz:

love her and love that this tribute went straight to Musique Mechanique out the gates, prob my fav album of hers
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:35pm doctorjazz:

Carla Bley-another all time fave, hitting on all cylinders, Irene!
(This is the album with the "vinyl skip" written into the score... Ahh, there it is!
  1:35pm Mark R:

I must confess I was a little nervous, too, although I was aware he had a recent birthday. I read somewhere that he's appeared on something like 400 records
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:36pm doctorjazz:

She was such a card... 😉
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Irene Trudel:

Here's a link to help DJ Bryce with medical expenses: www.gofundme.com...
  1:37pm Mark R:

Not to hijack the thread, but how sad it is that Bryce needs a Go-Fund-Me to pay his medical bills when every other civilized country in the world...ah fuck it.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:37pm Michael 98145:

Good to see 124 folks chipping in
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:38pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

Thanks, Irene! It sounds like such an awful accident.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:38pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

Mark R, I hear ya (from the choir!)
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:39pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

ha ha ha Carla Bley BTW!!! Love this!!!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:39pm Summer and Michael and Sylvia:

Good morning-ish, Irene!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Sean in Bristol UK:

S, M & S, salutations
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:44pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

Seriously, Bryce's show is probably my most returned to the archives to hear show on WFMU. I just saw a live performance by Pandit Krishna Bhatt and have so much more appreciation for Indian classical music becasue of Bryce's program.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:44pm doctorjazz:

Early Bley albums are great (I've read interviews with her where she disparages them, but I love them).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm Irene Trudel:

That "skip" is even funnier on CD! People who bought vinyl back in the day must've thought it was a defect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Mx. Baba Bee and Summer and Michael and Sylvia! Agreed-- Bryce has some unusual and unique tastes in sounds.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:45pm Michael 98145:

@Mark R, i share your disgust.

I don't come from wealth.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:46pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Carla Bley, Marvellous
  1:47pm David in London:

Hey S&M&S.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:47pm steveo:

Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Summer and Michael and Sylvia:

Hi, Sean!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Summer and Michael and Sylvia:

Hi, David!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Irene Trudel:

Mark R, it truly is disgusting that people in this country have to beg for money to help with medical assistance.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:48pm doctorjazz:

I have the vinyl version, have to admit the "skip"was a bit confusing for a few minutes, until I figured it out
LOVE Goes to Church!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:49pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Carla Bley, I have your attention, love this set
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:50pm zzz:

@docjazz, the early Bley recordings definitely have a strong sound of their era but i love it too. i was just listening to peter gordon "star jaws" (heard machomusic for the first time in a while over the weekend) and i love that kind of new music/jazz/funk/rock thing of the time
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:51pm steveo:

fooled me, for sure; i was looking for Irene's phone number for a second there (*i don't have irene's phone number)
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:51pm doctorjazz:

It's terrible and amazing we don't care for folks (in multiple situations, health care being a big one)!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 1:52pm doctorjazz:

Getting behind at the office, your fault, Irene!

Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:19pm Sean in Bristol UK:

An absolute cutie, Sylvia
Avatar 2:20pm Sylvia:

Pixie-Gato, such a cute name ha!
it's always funny for a French person, since gato, spanish for cat, sounds like gateau which means cake
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 2:23pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Sylvia, does Pixie vibrate when she purrs?
