Options Music For a Free World with Dave Sewelson: Playlist from December 14, 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.

@Sem: I went with Selby after Lowry, a lighter book than the dance one. Not in terms of content, but physical weight. I walk a lot in these days of transit strike, that factored in

I don't recall seeing Rob Brown live (seems odd I haven't, as b/tn Vision Fests and automatically attracted to any thing William Parker-related, you'd think I had). Alas, I'm off to salt mines to see what my sweat can procure,,,, salud mis amigos!

Was happy to have Rob appear live on Give the Drummer Some many years ago, and was happy to feature his music exclusively on my show back in 2015 (wfmu.org...). Count me as a big Rob Brown fan!

Good afternoon, friends. Interesting track! I haven't heard Rob play quite this "noisey" before :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm fred:

I like this a lot
Avatar 3:12pm Dave Sewelson:

I was digging that Rob is pushing it on this one....
Avatar 3:12pm Dave Sewelson:

  3:16pm Jim Ryan:

I'm enjoying this. Last time I heard Rob Brown live was back in the early 2000's in L.A. shortly after Henry Grimes had been rediscovered and Wm Parker had somehow supply him with a green contra bass. It was a very hot day in L.A.
  3:32pm Jim Ryan:

Hot day in L.A. by Silver Lake (not really a lake rather a reservoir).
Avatar 3:33pm Dave Sewelson:

What were you doing in LA Jim?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm doctorjazz:

Great Stuff!
Avatar 3:41pm geezerette:

Love this!

I favour the doc's opinion.

Howdy, Sem!
  3:42pm Jim Ryan:

Playing a couple gigs with Alicia Mangan (tenor) and a free-style drummer plays around L.A. I should not have forgotten his name and bass player I came down with Krisitjan Bondesson.

Hey hey, g!

I think we'd be in better shape collectively if jazz / improvisation were taught in middle school.

beautiful hit, time for that duo album gentlemen
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm ParUbi:

Hi guys!
  4:07pm Peter Kuhn:

The years of playing together with William is paying off in the closeness and beauty of your interaction here. Might be your best live set ever Dave. Or at least best today!!
Avatar 4:10pm geezerette:

it's gorgeous.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm fred:

@Geezerette: I know people who teach noise at middle schools. It works because it allows experimentation and failing. And involves making their own instruments from cheap stuff. Jazz might draw the wrong kind of Kenny Gs, and it requires much more monetary investment
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm ParUbi:

Hmm, what equipment does one need to teach noise? Just a microphone and ... anything, really. You have a point!
Avatar 4:21pm coelacanth∅:

imagination and discretion are the primary tools used
Avatar 4:22pm coelacanth∅:

haha i always laugh when i try to pronounce nommonsemble
Avatar 4:25pm geezerette:

@Fred: What I had in mind was a class I had at college which consisted of showing up at an on campus theater to hear Gerald Wilson, the instructor, and his well known friends playing together. No tests, no grades...just exposure to the music played in real time by some of the best musicians. Like this show we're listening to.
Thanks for mentioning the noise class. Makes me happy to know that!
Avatar 4:34pm geezerette:

Yes, blow more!!!

So happy to have been along for the show. Thank you, Dave and Rob, and free worlders. Love it live!

Bye, buddies. :)

More live music is coming right up on the Drummer Stream. Gina Bacon's SOMEDAY MATINEE is next, live from Nashville. Gina's special guest in studio is Taylor Alexander. Hopefully he'll perform songs from his solo album Good Old Fashioned Pain. Should be a great show!

Here's is Gina's playlist: wfmu.org...
