Am thankful you are doing this.

And, while we're mourning...RIP Jim Hall. www.chicagoreader.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm Doug Schulkind:

Only one hour? Really? What was I thinking?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm Doug Schulkind:

Mourning becomes dyspeptic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey Doug and Jeff! How's it going?

Is this another tribute? So many at the year's end.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm Doug Schulkind:

Hiya Matt. Too many damn tributes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Doug Schulkind:

How about some Thelonious while you're waiting for the show to start?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Sounds bout right!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Always Easy Street, in the WFMUniverse...
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Jeff Golick:

And now, if you'll excuse me, I gotta go watch some Snooki gifs for the next ten minutes.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Jeff Golick:

Ok I'm back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Twisting space-time, those gifs are.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Jeff Golick:

Any of y'all seen/heard that "new" Monk 1969 perf just released?

Also: hi Matt!
Avatar 5:59pm hyde:

I don't like seeing all of this shuffling off the mortal coil, but damn if I aint a sucker for a good tribute show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm Doug Schulkind:

I just bought some Snookigifs at Duane Reade. Nothing else removes toe pus as effectively.
Avatar 6:00pm glenn:

toe. pus. blergggggghhhhh.
Avatar 6:01pm ndbob:

evening Doug and everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm Doug Schulkind:

Hey hyde and ndbob and glenn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Jeff! And hyde, glenn, NDBob and all Drummers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm pacific standard simon:

ACK! Yez started widdout me!
Avatar 6:03pm glenn:

tardiness is not permitted at gtdr.
Avatar 6:04pm glenn:

okay, it's permitted, but it's frowned upon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm pacific standard simon:

Tarty-ness, however...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi PSS. Now you must catch up on the online tutorial, once the Archive's posted.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Jeff Golick:

Howsabout tartan-ness?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Doug Schulkind:

Hallo there pacificSS!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm Hugo:

Klunkiness, though, is encouraged ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm pacific standard simon:

I am (wuz) lizzening to Grateful Dead boots and folding psychedelic origami Christmas trees.

HI Doug -- no workee today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm Matt from Springfield:

Tartans are fine and artistic.
Kilts are as well, provided they aren't the under-most of your underwear...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm Doug Schulkind:

Brother Hugo en la casa!
Avatar 6:08pm glenn:

grateful dead bootlegs are kinda the musical version of coals to newcastle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm pacific standard simon:

Kluginess is guaranteed. Matt, Jeff, glenn, Hugo, bob, hyde... did I fergets anyone?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm Matt from Springfield:

"Over the Rainbow" seems to be an instrumental jazz standard. I guess every player wants to show their take on it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm pacific standard simon:

I'm typing this in my underwear, Matt -- LOOONG underwear. It's chilly, for the Northwest!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:10pm Jeff Golick:

BEN WEBSTER. Like buttah.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:11pm Doug Schulkind:

Almost certainly Rick Laird on bass and Jackie Dougan on drums here with Stan and Ben.
Avatar 6:11pm hyde:

hi to everyone i didn't say hi back to
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:11pm Matt from Springfield:

Chilly here too PSS! There was snow earlier today, though not nearly as nasty as the rainy/slushy/freezy night last night! Voted worst weather of the year here, unanimously (1/1)!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm pacific standard simon:

I like that you can hear the bass as well as any of the instruments. THAT Rick Laird, Doug?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm Doug Schulkind:

@Jeff Golick
DJ Monica has a dog named Butter. Maybe I'll name my next dog Ben Webster.

@hyde
Are you sitting in a hi-back chair?
Avatar 6:12pm ndbob:

about two inches of snow here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Matt from Springfield:

"Blanket" HIs then, to keep everyone warm!

@Jeff: Substituting Ben Webster for butter saves you 300 calories a meal!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm pacific standard simon:

Webstered English muffin... yum.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm Doug Schulkind:

@pacific standard simon
Yes, THAT Rick Laird.
Avatar 6:14pm hyde:

that Over the Rainbow was FANTASTIC
Avatar 6:14pm Luna:

Next dog......Fine. i know when I'm not wanted.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Jeff Golick:

Matt: and I've been using Mike Webster all this time...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Doug Schulkind:

@Luna
I thought maybe you could use a friend. (gulp)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm pacific standard simon:

There have been rumors of snow here, but mostly it's too cold and dry.
Avatar 6:16pm Luna:

I can't even look at you right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm Doug Schulkind:

@Jeff
Mike Webster was a Hall of Fame center (and tragic brain-injury recipient) of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm Matt from Springfield:

@Jeff: Heh! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm Doug Schulkind:

@Luna
Well would you mind not smelling me, too?
Avatar 6:18pm Luna:

However, if my food bowl was filled, we could probably move on.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Jeff Golick:

@Doug: Yeah, that was a little Pittsburgh for ya there. Also good on a bagel: Jack Ham.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Jeff Golick:

Ok thanks you've been great....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm pacific standard simon:

Bad on a bagel: jack Mormon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm Hugo:

I knew Mike Osborne would be in here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm Doug Schulkind:

@Hugo
Wish I could've fit in the amazing studio duet sessions Stan & Mike did, but with only an hour. Sigh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Doug Schulkind:

Here, from 2007, was my Mike Osborne memorial broadcast: wfmu.org...
Avatar 6:22pm glenn:

good on a bagel (toasted) - honey and parmigiano.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Doug Schulkind:

Here, our friends from Destination Out chat about the Stan Tracey/Mike Osborne recording "Original" destination-out.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm Matt from Springfield:

@glenn: Mmmm, interessant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm Carmichael:

Hiya, Doug.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm Doug Schulkind:

Hello and welcome, Carmichael.
Avatar 6:26pm hyde:

I am cracking up reading the comments from the Mike Osborne show where it gets to the part noting a DO comment about how Marion Brown loves to receive calls from fans, but please call before 6 PM.
Avatar 6:26pm ndbob:

hello Carmichael!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Doug Schulkind:

@hyde
Marion B was in a nursing home by that point.
Avatar 6:28pm hyde:

@Doug makes sense. I took a class with MB in the 80's, he really was a super sweet guy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm Matt from Springfield:

You mean: "Just *one* of a few"
Avatar 6:29pm hyde:

also, have I mentioned this show is blowing my mind? I have apparently been way too woefully ignoramus about Stan Tracey to this point in my listenin' life.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm Matt from Springfield:

Thank you, welcome again, Carm!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:29pm Jeff Golick:

I regret that I never called that number for Marion Brown.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm pacific standard simon:

I, too, share hyde's woeful ignorance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm Doug Schulkind:

Me too, Jeff. Me too.
  6:36pm earrie:

I didn't know, either. Lovely music.
And makes me feel lament these missing mountains in the airwaves.
Avatar 6:36pm hyde:

@pss my British jazz iq is about 62
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm pacific standard simon:

Not to be confused with The Crimson Jazz Trio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Doug Schulkind:

@hyde
Wow! Marion taught at a school in Connecticut, no?
  6:37pm earrie:

Er, feel lament for or just lament.
It's a woeful lack of presence across the public airspace.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm Doug Schulkind:

Another brilliant live recording from Stan. This one is from the legendary 100 Club in London.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Doug Schulkind:

Welcome back dearrie earrie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Hugo:

Yes, the one tune that just has to be included! But there was a second version of Under Milk Wood with Art Themen on tenor and with recitation by Donald Houston. Not so well known.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Matt from Springfield:

Brilliant indeed!
Avatar 6:39pm hyde:

@Doug my class with him was at Umass. During the time I was there, they had Max Roach, Archie Shepp and Marion Brown all teaching.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm Doug Schulkind:

@Hugo
Tracey recorded Milk Wood three different times, I believe. Art Themen is on Soprano sax on this cut.

@hyde
A UMass. That's right. My hero Yusef Lateef was also (and still is, I believe) there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm Matt from Springfield:

@hyde: With weekly professorial jam sessions?!! (To dream :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Matt from Springfield:

Really Doug? Sounds more like UJazz with that impressive record.
Avatar 6:44pm hyde:

@Doug yeah, I just missed the Lateef era. I think he came the year after I graduated.

@Matt I wish! I got to see them all play, but separate-like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Doug Schulkind:

One of my great regrets is that I didn't go to Wesleyan. If I had, I would have studied with Ed Blackwell. But I didn't because my sister was there and I needed to go stake out my own turf. At least I got to study with Candy Johnson and Hugh Ragin at Oberlin. (And, for one brief shining weekend, with visiting artist Anthony Braxton, who, of course, is now at Wesleyan.)
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Jeff Golick:

jazz headz: is the second, smaller photo in this article, in fact, Keith Jarrett? www.nytimes.com...
  6:46pm earrie:

Heya. Half my eyes are here and the other on the stove.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Doug Schulkind:

@earrie
Do what you gotta do. Listen safely.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Jeff Golick:

@Doug: per Braxton's Tri-Centric Foundation newsletter, "this is Anthony's last semester at Wesleyan University."
Avatar 6:47pm hyde:

@Jeff i think that's Chick Corea
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Hugo:

I'd say Chick Corea
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Jeff Golick:

@hyde: that's what I thought too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Matt from Springfield:

Give the Drummer Some!! :D
Avatar 6:49pm hyde:

@Jeff sadly, my fusion iq is higher than my British jazz IQ
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:50pm Jeff Golick:

Alerted Nate Chinen via twitter, then started to doubt myself.
Hard to tell who's behind all that hair...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Sadly I can only Favorite this track once!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm Doug Schulkind:

@jeff Golick
WTF! Let me say that again. WTF! He better be going to Harvard. I remember when he was playing chess in Washington Square Park for $$$. Well, maybe just $.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm Doug Schulkind:

WKCR-FM at Columbia University is doing its Jim Hall memorial broadcast right now. I know that if I spent just a little more time listening to Jim Hall, I would adore him.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Jeff Golick:

@Doug: I think he's going to try and make his Tri-Centric Foundation into a full-fledged cultural operation, devote all of his energies there.
Avatar 6:54pm hyde:

@Doug are you listening to another jazz tribute radio show while doing your jazz tribute radio show??? if so, I'm impressed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm Hugo:

Just saw some Youtube videos of Hall with Jimmy Giuffre. Splendissimo!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Jeff Golick:

This duo is really good, too. A great great show & tribute. Thanks, Doug! And Stan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Doug Schulkind:

Put me in the "definitely Chick Corea" camp. Can't you see the "I ♥ Scientology" t-shirt on underneath?!

OK, cheap shot. I admit it.
Avatar 6:56pm hyde:

@Hugo I've said it before, I'll say it again: Jimmy Giuffre is soooo underrated
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm Doug Schulkind:

What hyde said (again).
Avatar 6:57pm ndbob:

excellent show Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Hugo:

Yes, we have given Doug a good reason for playing Hall and Giuffre next time around
Avatar 6:58pm hyde:

fantastic show. ear opening. thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm pacific standard simon:

3/5 of a mile in 60 minutes...
