Charles Mingus said jazz was a word invented to separate musicians from their money. Music for a Free World brings us together, drawing listeners to the healing power of smooth free jazz. Each week, surprise guests bring their own sides to spin and their instruments of choice to spontaneously jam.

@chresti: was referring to the $20 bill that Andrea found (or imagined finding) in the first tune Dave played. She contemplated giving it away, leaving it there...etc.

I'm listening on a Jerry rigged set up that allows me to stream in my blocked office (iPad, tethered to my phone for internet access, then out to a clock radio), but my impression odds that these recordings are really good sounding.

Some wonderful collaborations with this cantu e tenore singing from Sardinia and "jazz." The Dutch cellist Ernst Reijseger recorded a spectacular album with Tenore e Concordu de Orosei: www.discogs.com...
  2:49pm Andrea:

Hi, everybody. what do you think of these Sardinian singers?
  2:50pm Andrea:

Oh, Doug, thanks. I’ll check that out.

Italian bassist Marcello Melis (with Roswell Rudd, Enrico Rava, Don Moye, etc.) recorded with the Sardinian quartet Gruppo Rubanu: www.discogs.com...

Really love the Sardinian singers!
Avatar 3:00pm geezerette:

Gorgeous guitar,elegant vocal phrasing...glad for introduction to this artist.
  3:00pm Andrea:

I’m so glad you all liked the Sardinians. This track (Bob Casanova and company) also really gets me. I FEEL it as much as I hear it.
Avatar 3:03pm geezerette:

Andrea, it gives me same feeling Chet Baker does.
  3:07pm Andrea:

Geezerette, I hear you. I’m so glad you like it. You can find him on YouTube a bit. And he did at least one other CD I know of, with Connie Crothers.
Avatar 3:08pm geezerette:

Thanks, Andrea!

Dave, you bring so much soul and beauty every week. Hoping Andrea will perform in L.A. , certainly searching for records.

If I could I would. :D

Great singing! Great song!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm fred:

That Roscoe Holcomb track was so great.
@chresti: looks like whenever I clicky-star a track today, you beat me to it
Avatar 3:47pm geezerette:

Lots of heavyweights have played here,but I have no contacts,.Mainly know visual artists now.

Bob Dylan: "Roscoe Holcomb has a certain untamed sense of control, which makes him one of the best."

Dave, if I get any solid tips I'll let you know.

My donations to the station are purely selfish. I get much more than I give. It's probably the best investment I ever made (granted, not a high bar)
Avatar 4:08pm geezerette:

Yes,yes,yes, Andrea, totally agree. It's all in your music. Gifts are made for giving.

Great duet, been waiting for the live stuff!
  4:17pm andrew drury:

This kind of radio is THE BEST. Imaginative, expansive, intelligent, not filtered. I felt like I was learning stuff and getting new info and stimulus within about 10 seconds of tuning in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm fred:

@doctorjazz: speaking of gifts, looks like you're getting a great birthday present with this live set
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm doctorjazz:

Great present indeed, Fred!
Love Andrea's multi note singing (and the rest of the set).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm doctorjazz:

Not to mention Dave's multi note and rest of his playing...

Talk about "feeling the music in your body", Ben Webster always does that for me.
  4:38pm Andrea:

Aw, man, thank you for the nice feedback, everyone. I sincerely appreciate it.
  4:39pm Andrea:

Me, too, doctorjazz, re Ben Webster — that gorgeous, juicy sound.
