Options Music For a Free World with Dave Sewelson: Playlist from August 15, 2019 Options

Dave Sewelson's avatar View Dave Sewelson's profile Options

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.

Im actually at a gig now... well Im in the audience so I guess it's a show for me... well actually Im out back in the smoking area right now but anyway. there are some bands... they brought their instruments... and people clapped! so... everything he was saying about gigs is accurate as far as I can tell... that's what happens. sometimes there's a random guy sitting in the corner of the smoking area listening to wfmu... without headphones.

The photo reminds me of cousin It, with the hat (and a haircut)
  10:43pm David J:

I’m liking this, I say let it roll
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:44pm doctorjazz:

My daughter just said the same thing (about Cousin It).

Cousin It is going to play the whole thing....

Now you can blame technical problems on “Hand” popping up and messing with the board.

You mean "Thing"?

Avatar 10:59pm coelacanth∅:

when my hair first was really long, around 6th grade, certain family members called me cousin it.
it *was* in my face. for some reason it didn't bother me and i could see fine.
  11:00pm Carmichael in Portland OR:

What is this hipster coolness?
  11:00pm David J:

Whoops, sorry, apologies to “Thing”!!!
Avatar 11:01pm coelacanth∅:

chresti i don't normally drink sodapop but since the discussion on Larry's show about flavor stations (or whatever they're called) i might just go for that.
Avatar 11:01pm Dave Sewelson:

Carmichael we is the hipwazzi
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02pm chresti:

Yeah, I've been called cousin it before. And shaggy dog.
Avatar 11:02pm coelacanth∅:

David J you really don't want to offend Thing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm chresti:

Cherry it is!
Avatar 11:04pm coelacanth∅:

i generally keep my hair out of my face now. it can be a pain in the ass; but i'm too stubborn to cut it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm chresti:

Great stuff, Little Dave!

Happy Belated Carmichael!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm doctorjazz:

Cool set!
  11:13pm Carmichael:

I wouldn’t know, but I do know there’s great beer there.
Avatar 11:13pm coelacanth∅:

i just ate "bird's nests". no birds, no eggs. no bird poop.
they were good anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm doctorjazz:

Trying to go to sleep,early work morning, you're making this very difficult!
  11:13pm Carmichael:

Thanks, folks. Granny’s birthday was yesterday.
  11:14pm Carmichael:

Or the day before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm chresti:

The Radio Snacks made me crave a Phillipe's french dip sandwich
  11:14pm Carmichael:

This guitar is wonderfully fluent.
  11:14pm Doug Schulkind:

Happy happy birthday birthday !!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm chresti:

Haha coel
  11:17pm Dean:

chresti: I was in LA during the first week of August, had business in downtown LA, after which...I took the family to Philipe's! I'm partial to lamb with blue cheese and of course the hot mustard.
Avatar 11:18pm coelacanth∅:

hey chresti i know you go to traitor joe's 'you ever try those "bird's nests"?(in the frozen section) they're the shizzle
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm doctorjazz:

That is up there in foods that are absolutely unappealing...(to me, of course)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm chresti:

I have not, thanks coel
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm chresti:

That reminds me to pick up some Phillipe's mustard @Dean
Avatar 11:21pm coelacanth∅:

dr. they're basically onion/carrot/kale tempura. no go?
  11:23pm Dean:

Buddy of mine used to make pretty much on a weekly basis a Caesar salad with homemade croutons featuring fresh rosemary and tons of garlic, a fresh egg from his backyard, and a couple dollops of Phillipe's mustard. It was obscenely good, hot, creamy, and crisp.
  11:25pm Dean:

Idea for a Mad-Libs: That's how I like my [Caesar salad]: hot, creamy, and crisp.
Avatar 11:26pm Dave Sewelson:

Getting close to midnight snack time...I think that program is up next
Avatar 11:27pm coelacanth∅:

sounds delicious but i think i'd replace the croutons with roasted pecans
  11:28pm David J:

From Sitting Bull to Universal Indians!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm chresti:

I like to add Phillipe's (or dijon) mustard to salad dressing concoctions
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm doctorjazz:

Coel, I meant the lamb and Blue cheese.
Albert Ayler is a great send off, time to for the pillow, thanks, David!
Avatar 11:31pm coelacanth∅:

(dark meat (unoversal indians) might be a good segue)
  11:32pm Dean:

I know, doc jazz. To some it might sound a bit gamey, but in fact it's luscious, if you're the lamb sort. Double-dipped!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm chresti:

I think Franco likes the Lamb dip.
Avatar 11:34pm Franco Twinkie:

Hi Dave. May I make a dinner suggestion? I just made my mom a New York steak and mashed potatoes. Now she wants to give me all her money!
  11:36pm Dean:

The Ayler brings to mind Trio Clusone's takes on Irving Berlin's "I Am an Indian, Too." Man, imagine Ayler's group jamming with them.
Avatar 11:36pm Franco Twinkie:

I will crawl over hot coals for a nice French cut lamb chop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36pm chresti:

Phillipe's is one of few places that I'll have beef
Avatar 11:36pm Dave Sewelson:

May I see a menu....
  11:38pm Dean:

I have fond memories of a Porterhouse at Tanino in Westwood lotsa years back. Have no idea how good the place remains.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm chresti:

So that's your secret, dinners after midnight @Dave
Avatar 11:43pm coelacanth∅:

ah okay dr.j i fully agree with that!

Thanks for your Goodness Graciousness, Dave!
  11:53pm Dean:

He is so consistently goddamn good. Everything about his work on that instrument -- color, timbre, outlandish whatever shit -- hits the spot every time. That guy is amazing.

  11:59pm Doug Schulkind:

Thanks for driving the jalopy, Dave! Great ride. I’ll see everyone back here In nine hours!
  12:01am Dean:

Blue plate special for me was a catered party at the school where I work. It was pretty yummy: good hummus, dolmas, chicken breasts sauteed with olives, peppers, onions, etc., and assorted other goodies. It's all I've eaten today, but I will survive.
Avatar 12:01am Dave Sewelson:

Thanks boss...underwater at 7am followed by the one and only at 9am
