Favoriting The Laughing Clock with DJ Peter: Playlist from January 7, 2024 Favoriting

DJ Peter's avatar View DJ Peter's profile Favoriting

Obscure musical gems, avant experimentation, and classics worth rehearing. A conurbation of Leslie speakers, timbales, plungers, arch-tops, tablas, and squeaky reeds. Black ties, pork pies, Cuban boots, Nudie suits, bobbysocks, turtlenecks, and high-heeled sneakers. Jazz is the north star but it’s a wide universe, so says The Laughing Clock.

I did two bouts of about 3 inches each, and I probably have about that much left for tomorrow. The big pain is always the "plow pile" that the street plowing dumps in front of your driveway. Oh well. It makes the skiers happy.

I still get emails from the Cadence folks but I don't think CIMP is still going.
In addition to loving the sound aesthetic, gotta love the family affair: I think it's Dad who runs it, Son who engineers it, Mom who feeds the musicians, and Daughter (or maybe also Mom) who designs the album covers.

Nice pick! I love this album, but it is George Adams's least characteristic. Eicher received some flack for that, but one could argue that it stretched Adams beyond his comfort zone.

Just caught the last set, very cool stuff (still mulling over springing for the Ron Horton-Newvelle does have sales occasionally, (which in this case might drop it from $85 to maybe $60, still not cheap, but not that far off from what a 2 LP set goes for these vinyl revival days).
Thanks for the great sounds, catch you next time!
