Options Music For a Free World with Dave Sewelson: Playlist from May 9, 2020 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.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm doctorjazz:

Lovely!
  2:17pm Dean:

In the liner notes to her 2007 record, A Long Story, Anat Fort states that she is "[s]itting in my Brooklyn apartment today..." Noa Fort's bio on her website states that she arrived in New York in 2013. I suppose there's a family resemblance among the photographs of the two. Sisters, perhaps? Cousins?

Steve Swell!
Avatar 2:17pm fred:

Good afternoon Dave and people of a free world. I don't think I ever read bell hooks. Her books are not that common over here. If my fave bookshop somehow survives and reopens someday, I should fix that (no way I'm going to Amazon except to get the details for ordering from an actual bookshop)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm doctorjazz:

Hey, Coel Dean, and the ready of you free folks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm Jeff Golick:

Digging the lovely sounds this breezy Brooklyn afternoon -- thanks to Noa and Dave!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm doctorjazz:

I googled and found the answer, I'll hold off for now. There's a large contingent of expat Israeli jazz musicians that I really like, as Noa to the list.

Youngest daughter graduating college in a few weeks, Glory Hallelujah!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm Dave Sewelson:

fred and doctor and Jeff yeah
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm Jeff Golick:

Congrats, @doc! What are the commencement plans, for the current era?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm Dave Sewelson:

doc is she coming back home?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm doctorjazz:

Virtual, of course (TCNJ-The College Of New Jersey) still says they plan for a "real" graduation ceremony, when conditions permit (but I'm not holding my breath)
  2:26pm Dean:

If they do have an in-person ceremony and you attend, then you *should* hold your breath.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm spodiodi:

hah
  2:28pm Dean:

Did I hear a whiff of Gershwin a few seconds ago?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm doctorjazz:

Dave, she's been home since college cancelled all classes and went virtual for the Spring Semester, mid March (she was home for Spring Break, then school told everyone not to bother coming back).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm Webhamster Henry:

The Obamas are doing a national commencement speech you can pretend is your own. www.instagram.com...
Avatar 2:29pm fred:

@coel: thanks, but unless my bookshop does close, I'm not buying from anyone else, unless they refuse to take an order (which happens, sometimes, and I love them even more for it)

  3:30pm DavidJ:

That was classic. “Two robots walked into a bar”...BOOM!
Avatar 3:30pm fred:

Sounds good now. That should teach you what happens when you diss the bots, even one as nice as the Dougbot

Avatar 3:30pm Brian in UK:

Hello Dave and groovers. Is there such a thing as silence. What is quality?

Getting old for this packing/moving stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm Stanley:

Finally got here.
Hello.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm doctorjazz:

I'll always be pissed off that Brooklyn became the music capital AFTER I moved to Joisey!
  4:14pm Dean:

Nice. Is brother a musician, too?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm doctorjazz:

I saw Anat at Birdland a while back, great show! I have a terrific album of her with Giugliani Trovesi (this sounds great too).
Avatar 4:17pm fred:

@doctorjazz: correlation does not imply causation
  4:18pm Dean:

With Gianluigi Trovesi?! Is it on ECM? Need to find that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm doctorjazz:

@Fred, hahaha!
(There was so little in Brooklyn until not that long ago).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm doctorjazz:

www.ecmrecords.com...

(Should be available, could send it as will)
  4:25pm Dean:

Thanks, doctorjazz. How did I miss that one? I have her two other ECM records, and I adore Trovesi. I'm hoping soon that my beloved Down Home Records will open in some fashion relatively soon. I'll be happy to acquire it there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm doctorjazz:

Heading home with a loaded van, great show, thanks Dave and Now!

Thanks doc

Big Trovesi fan myself, no mail order? (Downtown Music Gallery is still doing mail order, but haven:t looked for it in the catalog).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm doctorjazz:

ecmrecords.com...

You could order direct from ECM (but seems a bit more expensive).
  4:31pm Dean:

They do mail order, but the online catalog doesn't capture the store inventory. Mostly it's Arhoolie and similar labels. I like spending money at Down Home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Gina Bacon:

Happy Saturday! It's sounding very cool in here.
  4:38pm Dean:

I'm beginning to sense that Noa Fort is the musical love child of Jaap Blonk and Laura Nyro.

I think DMG is still doing mail order
