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.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm Doug Schulkind:

This radio show is insane!! The cream of the crop of the current pantheon of improvising geniuses come into our homes every week and play for us. It is almost something a jazz-loving radio programmer might have DREAMED up.

But it is not a dream. It is our reality.

Consider making or upping a pledge to show your support for this endeavor.

PLEDGE: pledge.wfmu.org...

g, it was Spring 4 days in a row, snowdrops and grape hyacinths up, started leek seeds inside...today, +50mph winds in air at-4C, windchill -17C. Is the coronavirus the only reliably warm alternative? :/

Hello Dave, just a throwback to the other day talking about Cafe Oto on Doug's show. Saw Mike Cooper there a couple of times and he kindly had his photo taken with me by by Paul Sherratt another long time FMU stalwart.

Live music now and the show after you. What a station.

That was an old New York joke...to a New Yorker “spring back, fall forward” made as much or more sense than “spring forward, fall back”

Avatar 4:48pm Brian in UK:

Jeff, saw him about ten years ago, he played about one hour and did not seem interested but I got the impression from the way he walked that there was pain in his movements.
