Artist Track Album Label Approx. start time
 
American fingerstyle guitar master Duck Baker has so many albums to his credit since he started out in the 1970's that it's hard to know where to dip in. Baker is equally comfortable playing traditional British and Irish folk music, modern and free jazz, old-timey country, blues, gospel and ragtime music, all with an ease that belies its difficulty. Duck currently lives in the UK but visits the states from time to time. Two new album releases-- "Les Blues Du Richmond : Demos & Outtakes, 1973-1979" on Tompkins Square and "Duck Baker Plays Monk" on Triple Point Records-- prompted his latest visit. Duck Baker visited Irene at WFMU to play a few tunes with a lively conversation in between.

It feels so, so odd hearing the show on this day, following SSD. But that it's still on the schedule is great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/6/18 7:01pm chris:

happy to be hearing your show live once again, Irene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/6/18 7:03pm dale:

is it live?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/6/18 7:06pm chris:

recorded live and being played back live. does that count?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/6/18 7:06pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Raika, chris and dale! Yes, it is weird to be on this day/time, but grateful that I'm still here. "Live" music is what I'll be presenting over the summer. Dale, Duck is not actually here but we recorded this live, so chris is right, it does still count.

...doesn't use a pick...& he does Monk! I love 'im already...

'We're all Folk Musicians.'
- Monk to Dylan

dale & Rev. Rabbit, Duck has a very rich catalog to choose from. And when he plucks the strings, he sometimes pulls up on the strings. Amazing player!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/6/18 7:20pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/6/18 7:25pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...now I'm thinking of Richard Thompson...
Intricate - but not in a hurry to show off - concerned apparently w/ Beauty & Tone of all things...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/6/18 7:28pm Irene Trudel:

I'm sure Duck knows Richard. He was really good friends with both John Renbourn and Bert Jansch. I found this out AFTER the session. He's back in January, so I'm going to have to bring him back then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/6/18 7:31pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Half a show in and I declare this project a winner. Looking forward to the presentations the rest of the summer will bring.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/6/18 7:32pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks Ken! I already have things recorded / booked through the beginning of July. Lots of good sessions coming up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/6/18 7:33pm dale:

this is jug band-y. sure it's a staple.

...*still* discovering Traditional sources of Dylan melodies & such...
That'll go w/ seeing KenBurns' Prohibition thing...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/6/18 7:44pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Rather Monk-ish itself, seems to me...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/6/18 7:56pm chris:

this has been soooo so good. thanks, Irene and Mr. Baker!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/6/18 8:00pm Folsom:

Irene did you do the engineering also? I remember there was one guy on the comment board that always wanted to know the engineer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/6/18 8:00pm dale:

thanks! see you next week!
  Wed. 6/6/18 8:05pm em2c:

some of the style in "I Shall Not Be Moved" reminded me of the old song "Ragged But Right"... I'm sure some chords were passed along... all part of the great folk music tradition
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/6/18 8:32pm Summer and Michael:

Shoot! We knew the new show was just an hour but we thought it was still starting at 9pm! Not up on the archive yet... will it be? <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/8/18 4:55pm Irene Trudel:

Folsom, if I don't say otherwise I am the mix engineer on these live sessions. In my outside life I work as a live music engineer for John Schaefer on Soundcheck, New Sounds and WQXR.
