Options Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from October 13, 2016 Options

Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

Great to be exploring with you Ken!

If we do good on time, LD, there might be more of that one later on! I only played about 7 or its 30-some minutes

I love this kind of music in the cooler months.
Avatar 7:34pm ndbob:

Nice versions of Autumn Leaves - anyone seen the movie?
Avatar 7:35pm Flash Strap:

I actually never have
Avatar 7:36pm Flash Strap:

how is it?
Avatar 7:37pm Flash Strap:

btw, both Miles and Art Blakey on this session. as if you all didn't know

@Evan fairly good - I think it's Aldrich's follow up to Kiss Me Deadly

Hank Jones on piano, wonderful stuff

speaking of jazz soundtracks, I was watching l'ascenseur pour l'échafaud the other day: so good

@Flash: yep, one of my fave Miles albums, period!

Last Autumn Leaves, I swear!

@LD: agreed on both counts

Oh shit, I never realized this LP had some Shindo tracks - great stuff!
Avatar 7:54pm Flash Strap:

Jeanne Moreau is so good in that movie... on that note, I'm about to watch / rewatch one of my favorite Malle flicks, Black Moon

Avatar 8:41pm Flash Strap:

is that like a bourbon negroni?
Avatar 8:42pm hyde:

it's exactly a bourbon negroni!
Avatar 8:44pm Flash Strap:

smart. i like my negronis with rum too, actually, whatever you'd call that
Avatar 8:51pm hyde:

hmmm, haven't tried that one. the internets (or at least the first page of search engine results) seem to think that is called either a Kingston Negroni or a Man About Town, neither of which are great cocktail names.
Avatar 8:56pm Flash Strap:

I like Man About Town, sort of, though it's all wrong for the drink and I would never say it out loud
Avatar 8:58pm Flash Strap:

"this sounds just like autumn" you're all saying
Avatar 9:00pm coelacanth:

hello Evan and Explorers
Avatar 9:04pm Flash Strap:

If you've pledged to the show, and you're wondering why I haven't thanked you yet, it's because I don't exactly know who you are yet... but I will at some point. If you haven't pledged, consider it carefully and do what's right

Evening Flash!
Avatar 9:37pm Little Danny:

I've heard much about this Pharoah album without ever actually experiencing it before. This is lovely. And indeed very autumnal
Avatar 9:37pm glenn:

today in great lines about trump -
But the revelation that Clinton is an evil demon explains quite a lot. Someone clearly cast a spell on the Republican party this year. It’s as though the GOP made a Faustian bargain, but instead of asking Mephistopheles for magical powers, they asked for a 240-pound pile of sentient guano with weird hair."

Hi revrab!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm JtotheK:

was recently thinking of the Pharoah Sanders album 'Love in Us All' because I dig the track "Love Is Everywhere" and have yet to track that album down... I haven't heard this track/album before...and this is also really really good...
Avatar 9:45pm Little Danny:

@Doug: what class? (I mean actually what class? - you're otherwise a classy fellow.) p.s. I remember those Tues./Thurs. evening classes in grad school. Long affairs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...thot I heard an echo of his buddy Trane's 'Alabama'...
Avatar 9:47pm Little Danny:

@RRN63: me too, after you mentioned it!
Avatar 9:47pm Flash Strap:

@J-K: it's a good album, tho it;s really all about this track if I recall. this strikes me as very unique among Pharoah's ouvre, even as experimental as he is

Beautiful show, Ev! I was kind of wound up from political stuff earlier this evening and the music helped me wind down.
Avatar 9:54pm Flash Strap:

SO glad to help, Melinda. Yeah, I've been pretty tense too. It's a trying time, it really feels like a nightmare sometimes
Avatar 9:55pm Flash Strap:

did anybody else read that article about Trump's ghostwriter on Art of the Deal? In the New Yorker. Really really interesting, tho no huge surprises at this point

Hi friends, hope it's not premature to inform you that the party continues next door: wfmu.org...
