Little Danny's avatar View Little Danny's profile Options

Postwar atmospherica. High bop modernism and Afro-Latin sounds, twilight exotica and soundtrack moods, soul stompers and weepers, hypnotic R&B and blues, mystical '60s pop, lonely country, lonelier rock 'n' roll, instrumental weirdness, electronic creaking. Bringing worlds beyond into the worlds at hand.

Best club on Central Ave.

Hey all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm JtotheK:

the early van dyke '6 by 6' and 'the flick' 45s are both solid!
Avatar 10:38pm Little Danny:

zonk, hello and agreed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm JtotheK:

*earl, not "early". apologies for the typo.
Avatar 10:40pm Little Danny:

Doctor! I'm so glad you're here for tonight's jazz blowout
Avatar 10:42pm Little Danny:

Aye, yeah, I think "The Flick" is my fave EVD side

Hi hi hey Scraps!
Avatar 11:14pm Little Danny:

Thanks doctor, it's mucho appreciated
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm Scraps:

I think in my past collection of 45s that I could count in one hand vibraphonists
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm Scraps:

And that’s sad
Avatar 11:16pm coelacanth∅:

none comes to mind for my collection.
Avatar 11:18pm coelacanth∅:

well, maybe some Benny Goodman 7" records (331/3, 4 songs each) have Lionel Hampton in there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm doctorjazz:

I have almost no jazz 45's, period!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm Scraps:

That’s it

And not a lot of vibes in rock and pop
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm doctorjazz:

Now, LPs...got a few of those...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm Scraps:

And vibes is my favorite instrument
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm Scraps:

Just watching them played gives me a thrill
Avatar 11:23pm Little Danny:

Scraps: me too! Vibes, the most hypnotic and beautiful of jazz instruments? Of any instrument?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm Scraps:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm doctorjazz:

These things DO sound good (geeky audiophile in me coming out...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm JtotheK:

great take on 'nature boy'! i think i have some other 45s by Etta Jones, didn't know this one. (another one to look for.)
Avatar 11:29pm Little Danny:

Jason: I was just remarking to my lady that Etta Jone's is among my very favorite reads of "Nature Boy"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm JtotheK:

i have a few nature boy 45s (one by Ahmad Jamal comes to mind) and figure they are always worth a listen when i come across them. still don't have the Ahbez LP though, need to get the reissue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm Scraps:

Nature Boy resists bad interpretation
Avatar 11:35pm Dano59:

Present. Just in from a DJ gig 45 mins away.
Avatar 11:36pm Dano59:

@Scraps that is true. Even as 'Nature Girl' it's cool. always.
Avatar 11:36pm Little Danny:

Yes it does, Scraps. A very resilient composition, Nature Boy
Avatar 11:37pm Little Danny:

Honored to have ya here, Dano. What was the DJ gig? What kinda music?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm doctorjazz:

1+ on Nature Boy, great tune, many fine versions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm Scraps:

Even in Moulin Rouge!, even even. Though I haven’t heard Celine Dion’s version
Avatar 11:39pm Dano59:

Vinyl in a bowling alley. What could be better? A weekly series I do once in a while. Billed as pop, rock and soul, after my radio show ... did instrumentals, a Halloween set, country, Elvis Costello, Norton-issued Stones covers ... Courtney Barnett & Stereo Total for spice.
Avatar 11:40pm Dano59:

That Etta Jones is one of the best, imo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm Scraps:

Vinyl in a bowling alley! Doesn’t it.... skip?
Avatar 11:45pm coelacanth∅:

hmm, i have to say that if one of the modern pop/"r&b" divas decides to do "nature boy", we might find it isn't bulletproof!
  11:47pm zonk ludlow:

First time listener from Australia. Loved the show so many beautiful discoveries. Consider me a devotee. Thank you Danny, until next week.
Avatar 11:49pm Dano59:

trying to pledge but the buzzards are circling over WF and MU on the update page ...
Avatar 11:49pm northguineahills:

In Brooklyn, Gutter and Brooklyn Bowl both have dj nights. Huh, I never slung wax there (but around their corners I did).
Avatar 11:49pm Little Danny:

Ah, thank you so much, zonk! That really means a lot to me. p.s. Where in Australia?
Avatar 11:49pm Dano59:

welcome zonk.... it's a sonic walkabout here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm Scraps:

coel, true, but Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett did a creditable job
Avatar 11:50pm northguineahills:

Can't wait to throw vinyl once I'm settled here in F-L-A.
Avatar 11:51pm northguineahills:

Zonk, LD is full of many eclectic surprises, he'll take you down paths even I haven't heard.
Avatar 11:51pm Dano59:

The DJ setup at this joint is at the main counter where folks get their scorecards and shoes. Kind of awkward little dance that goes on all night.
Avatar 11:51pm Little Danny:

Huh, weird, Dano. Please keep trying!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm Scraps:

Still, I’m not searching out C Dion’s take
Avatar 11:52pm Dano59:

I will Danny. the site lets you credit 1 to 5 shows, that's cool.
Avatar 11:52pm Little Danny:

thank you NGH!
  11:52pm zonk ludlow:

That would be Sydney, although these tunes have taken my mind elsewhere for now.
Avatar 11:53pm Little Danny:

@dano: thanks, my man!
Avatar 11:53pm still b/p:

Goodnight and thanks.
How cloudy will Uncle Michael be when he has to do his show in the morning after Cubs just lost pennant?
Avatar 11:54pm Little Danny:

@zonk: Good! That's this show's whole raison d'etre
Avatar 11:54pm Dano59:

Is Michael's SGS show tomorrow? I would lollygag on other responso's for that.
  11:55pm zonk ludlow:

Cheers Dano & northguineahills. Looking forward to future sound adventures with you & the other nice folk who seem to frequent LD's space.
Avatar 11:56pm northguineahills:

@still b/p: I know better then to talk to my bros (cubs fans) for a few days> UM in the morning will be less then happy.

Before I put my earballs away for the night, thanks and goodnight/good morning everyone, and as always, thanks LD!
Avatar 11:56pm Dano59:

sure enough, zonk -- this space is the place.
Avatar 11:57pm Dano59:

I will cry with the fellow Cubs fans. Maybe they'll get back to the series in another 70 years. (last stretch: 1945-2016)
Avatar 11:57pm still b/p:

Dano -- UM describes his SGS for tomorrow as "bargain box finds."
Avatar 11:57pm Dano59:

still wearing my jersey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm JtotheK:

great show danny, thanks so much!
Avatar 11:58pm Dano59:

that's lovely, b/p! I don't expect to hear any Tom Jones, though. Or maybe, yet ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm doctorjazz:

Great show, Danny, thanks!
Avatar 11:58pm northguineahills:

I guess it's afternoon in ozland.
  11:59pm zonk ludlow:

northguineahills - indeed it is.
Avatar 11:59pm Dano59:

I love this music bed, every time.
Avatar 11:59pm coelacanth∅:

nor am i, Scraps! but i can imagine that Gaga/Bennett being 1/2 decent. the Lady's got more of a sensibility than most of her contemporaries. (if that's what they are) -not as prone to over the top vocal gymnastics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00am Scraps:

lovely, Little Danny!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00am Scraps:

Coel, agree.
Avatar 12:00am Dano59:

Gaga and Bennett also did 'Bang Bang' - not bad. But that's also one I don't like to see tortured.
Avatar 12:02am coelacanth∅:

Thanks Little D Brilliant program!

tchau camaradas
Avatar 12:05am Little Danny:

Jazz 45s for life!

Thank you all for being here, and much luv! See y'all around
