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.

@Chad: Do you have a site? All I found is stuff about Ruby, I guess google pegged me as a dev (it usually works for experimental music though, COVID must have threw it off track)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm Dave Sewelson:

dig this link, fred.

  2:20pm Chad:

Hah. I am indeed a developer too (that's me with all the Ruby stuff).

  2:23pm Chad:

Good afternoon, Steve! Lots of drummer compatriots here :)
  2:23pm Anders Griffen:

WC, from the "deep dirty south" ... I love it
  2:25pm Anders Griffen:

drummer compatriots!?!?
makes me think of when Frank Lowe introduced me to Rashied Ali the first time and he said: "I don't fuckin like drummers, man!"
... with a big, sweet smile ...
  2:26pm WC Anderson:

Thanks Steve -That was such a special, intense night - reflecting on what was over half of my years on earth being around Alvin F.
  2:26pm Steve hirsh:

can't have too many drummers, right????
  2:28pm Steve hirsh:

@wcanderson - yea, I get that, and it comes through loud and clear. I'm getting elevated as we speak.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44pm chresti:

Drummers rule!
  2:47pm Steve hirsh:

Dear lord. That was something.
  2:47pm DavidJ:

That was great.
  2:50pm WC Anderson:

Like Al would say: "Just PLAY!"
  2:54pm WC Anderson:

Fowler has GREAT saxophone teeth.
  2:54pm Steve hirsh:

Ha. I started playing alto sax in jr high and when I got braces my orthodontist I couldn't play a reed instrument because I had an overbite. So I switched to drums!!
  2:54pm Anders Griffen:

wish i had my original teeth
  2:56pm Steve hirsh:

I can hear your voice now!! You sound good.
  2:57pm Chad:

hah!

Helloooo Dave and fellow listeners
  3:12pm Chad:

Hello Martinibomb
  3:13pm Chad:

The name "martinibomb" has inspired me for this evening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm doctorjazz:

Hi free for all folks!
Avatar 3:13pm Martinibomb:

@Hah thanks a friend of mine named Chad came up with the name so there ya go
  3:14pm Anders Griffen:

Hey, Steve. Thanks. I will find that.
Chad, I want to come down for the martinibomb ...
  3:15pm Chad:

You're welcome! Just stay > 6 feet from me and don't touch anything!
  3:16pm Anders Griffen:

That'd be great! If I hit the road now, I might be able to get there around this time tomorrow ...
  3:17pm Steve hirsh:

If y'all are gonna have a martinibomb, I'm coming too.

welcome MB!
  3:18pm DavidJ:

Black Beings! I just picked up the CD on Bandcamp.
  3:19pm Chad:

thank you!
Avatar 3:46pm Martinibomb:

This is aweeeeesome
  3:48pm Chad:

I'm so glad you like it! Steve Hirsh sent me 3 tracks. I recorded over the top of them and mixed them. Remote free improvisation, one at a time.
Avatar 3:49pm Martinibomb:

super great! I'm really digging it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm fred:

@Martinibomb: I told one of the young composers at work that you intended to watch their performances, but when he asked your name I demurred, though maybe I shouldn't have
Avatar 3:51pm Martinibomb:

@Chad it could go anywhere and come off the rails at any time
@fred yeh.. i been thinking about just using my real name. It's an old music project name I had.. I feeel like it ties me into that retro crowd a little more than I really am tho
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm fred:

@Martinibomb: That's a nice name, though. And if you liked one of the pieces, I could maybe put you in touch with the culprit, real names confidential
One more sad thing about today is I can't meet the new composer class because of health guidelines
  4:03pm Steve hirsh:

Yea. Blow mf'ers.
  4:04pm WC Anderson:

Yes Indeed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm fred:

This was a great set! Thanks so much guys
  4:07pm WC Anderson:

All these drummers about to move in next door to Fowler now...
  4:08pm Steve hirsh:

on my way ...
  4:10pm Chad:

Now I'm curious about @martinibomb's music

  4:29pm Handsome Johnny:

Steve, used to work with a fella who had band called Overbite Delight.

Oh and hello Dave.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Dave Sewelson:

  4:30pm Chad:

happy saturday, gina. Johnny, lovely name. I have a crossbite. Not quite as good a name.
  4:31pm Steve hirsh:

HJ - best thing that ever happened to me (besides my wife and kids...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm Gina Bacon:

That's me! Thanks, Dave!
  4:34pm Steve hirsh:

Gotta jam, kids. Thanks so much for all of this. What a great hang. Everyone be well.
  4:36pm DavidJ:

Frank wrote Nothing But Love with Bertha Hope, she sang it on her record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm Dave Sewelson:

thanks for stopping b y Steve.dig the archive more later if you like
  4:37pm Chad:

Oh, interesting David! I didn't know that (and neither did Kelley Hurt). Looking it up.
  4:37pm Anders Griffen:

No. "Nothing But Love" pre-dates the band with Bertha. I was in that band (and bands before it).
  4:38pm Anders Griffen:

But Bertha did her own thing with it. That's a beautiful record.
  4:39pm Chad:

Anders, thanks for the clarification. I remember you all talking about the Bertha Hope thing but haven't heard it until (later) today.
  4:39pm Handsome Johnny:

The money aint required but it's needed.
  4:41pm Anders Griffen:

I spoke to Bertha several weeks ago (I guess. I've lost all track of time) and told her that this was the favorite title for this CD and she gave us her blessing, even though her CD had the same title. She said that was a long time ago already.
  4:42pm Chad:

Send her a copy :)
  4:42pm Anders Griffen:

But I will tell you the basic story behind the tune Nothing But Love in secret ; )
  4:43pm Anders Griffen:

Yes, she's on my list
  4:55pm Chad:

Thanks for listening, friends!
