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.

I really like a band that Andrew is in whose name is mathematical : 10 to the 32d power K. Not exactly good for SEO, but good for EARS.

my third favorite soup might be mulligatawny. Someone came to soup & sound, had it, and wound up meeting the love of her life--who was performing at S&S that night

@Andrew: Have you seen Hofesh Shechter's work? He's a drummer as well as a choreographer
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm fred:

Also, who are the choreographers you're working with, and are any planning to come to france? I'm a contemporary dance fan, but I'm lazy and only see 20 to 40 a year. Tickets can be hard to get here
Avatar 3:18pm Dave Sewelson:

where are the clarinets
  3:21pm claire:

great show. gotta go teach. ciao!
  3:21pm ?:

really like March in a Memory of a Moment

Thanks Fred--not familiar with Shechter until now. Hope to get to see him. It's been hard for me to get to France but hpe to before long. Claire--thanks! See you soon
Avatar 3:22pm Dave Sewelson:

Later Sis!.....

Here's another sound collage w/ lots of samples that I did for choreography. This one is for Sheri Cohen's Love of the New Gun. Features jets, trains, trucks, crows, rain, etc. from when I was artist in residence with the Oneida Nation. The dance was produced in Seattle around 2001.
  3:26pm ?:

samples of rocks falling in Hood Canal, Washington and running water from the Esopus River near Phoenicia, NY--backward cymbals....

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm fred:

re: Shechter: Political Mother is great, and the choreographer cut version is probably the best (though I've still got to see the unplugged one). But I think my favorite work of his is The art of not looking back. Chilling.

Ed Blackwell passed away in 1992. I re-connected with his son in a big way in October 2019 when he loaned me his dad's Sonor drums for the Soup & Sound house concert on Oct 10--what would have been Ed Blackwell's 90th birthday. Pheeroan akLaff and I both played solo sets that night, using Blackwell's drums. It was a profound thing and a thrill.

Andrew, thank you for sharing any Ed Blackwell anecdote. From what I hear the son and his family are great people.

Soup & Sound is the house concert series I've done at my place in Brooklyn for about 11 years. I make a big pot of soup for each one, and musicians play. Sometimes there are poets and writers, sometimes dancers, video/visual folk. etc... www.soupandsound.org
