In L.A., saw a free to the public show of Charlie Haden's Quartet West. He gave anecdote of a NYC show back in the day that said 'Free Jazz' on the marquee; people lined up expecting there to be no charge...

Avatar 9:26pm Dave Mandl:

Evening, all. Welcome oldjollymon. I'm a little busy so I might not be able to chat as much as usual, but glad to have you all here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27pm pacific standard simon:

Except for Ayler and Don Cherry and the Fugs, I have trouble remembering who else recorded for ESP. Pharaoh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm pacific standard simon:

Oh, and The Godz, I think.

Dude, you got an accent like a Litvak!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm pacific standard simon:

I'd just like to say "THANKS!" for DRM-free digital downloads. Much appreciated.
Avatar 10:06pm HollyT:

This track is utterly bonkers. I love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm pacific standard simon:

Holly, "utterly bonkers" (or "tute bonkers" as they say in Esperanto) is practically an ESP hallmark.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm pacific standard simon:

Ĉi tio ne estas pipo.

Salutoj al ĉiuj esperatists kaj WFMU aŭskultantoj!

Avatar 10:31pm la Canterbury ligno-elfo:

Ne estas tro malfrue por ĉiuj ŝalti al Esperanto!
Avatar 10:32pm HollyT:

@Pss: Jes, mi scias! Dankon. Tio estas amuza!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm pacaj normo simon:

LOL - Google Translate translates "Esperanto" as "English"!

  10:35pm mark Flynn:

This started out so full on, I was about to write it off as a version of Anthony Braxton doing his best to irritate. Instead this is incredibly cohesive.
Avatar 10:36pm JakeGould:

Ellohay, orldway foay choehey!
  10:37pm herb.nyc:

uh, so this is jazz, huh?
Avatar 10:37pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

Hura! Esperanta konkero sur WFMU!
Avatar 10:37pm Dave Mandl:

@herb: Of course.
Avatar 10:38pm HollyT:

Nope. It's "ĵazo"! (Or if you prefer, "azzjay"
Avatar 10:38pm JakeGould:

This is some kind of hippie music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm pacific standard simon:

Tiger Hatchery certainly had the right spirit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm pacific standard simon:

Damn, just when my ex finally came around to appreciating John Coltrane....
  10:44pm sara:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm pacific standard simon:

DO NOT use the album as a literal "cutting board".
  10:54pm herb.nyc:

(i being schooled tonight)
  10:57pm herb.nyc:

ARBOREA speaks to me. i like!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm pacific standard simon:

Glad to hear some of the non-jazz side of ESP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm pacific standard simon:

Why is it that narwhals and rhinoceroses are real, but unicorns aren't?
  11:09pm Wadsworth Longfellow:

FYI, "balls out" is a G-rated term, referring to the flyballs on a steam engine; when they are all the way out, you are going at max power.
Avatar 11:10pm JakeGould:

@PSS: Because Unicorns are lies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm pacific standard simon:

Avatar 11:13pm JakeGould:

Sorry, PSS. But Narwhals and Rhinos need love too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm pacific standard simon:

Don't you DARE say anything about pegasuses!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm pacific standard simon:

This is a record that I would put on if I were serving sangria at a party.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm pacific standard simon:

Black Crystal Eff Wolf, Dave.
Avatar 11:25pm Dave Mandl:

@pss: Yes indeed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm pacific standard simon:

That would make a fine WFMU Marathon pledge prize!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm pacific standard simon:

Bagpipes! Now this is pushing the boundaries, ESP!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48pm pacific standard simon:

This was the first ESP disk that I ever owned. I still love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53pm pacific standard simon:

"Kill For Peace" was featured in Dušan Makavejev's film WR: Mysteries Of The Organism, as Tuli Kupferberg (not the singer on that track) appeared as a rabid soldier.
Avatar 11:57pm oldjollymon:
