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.

Is Mr. Saft a fan of Kaikhosru Sorabji's work?
  7:43pm Dean:

Recordings of, in particular, keyboard instruments with slow decay AND interruption are wonderful!

Imagine a long enough beard that it serves as a blanket.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm WR:

Granaelli is on the record saying: "Granelli was only paid $120 dollars for the recording session of A Charlie Brown Christmas, and has never received any royalties from the television special or its soundtrack. Despite this fact, Granelli says he is not bitter: "It’s become one of the soundtracks of people’s lives,” he says. “There is such a human quality to it.”" from the Wikipedia entry for Granelli.
  7:59pm Dean:

Warren Dewey runs a stereo shop three blocks from my house. He engineered a number of big seller records (Boston, Little Feat, etc.). Many years ago Martin Scorsese called him when he found a track by Hendrix Dewey had engineered. It's "Blue Window" on the resulting release.
  8:06pm Dean:

Masters of decay: Marc Aubort & Joanna Nickrenz, Michel Bernstein, Marc Rusch. Great engineers who really love the music.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm doctorjazz:

Drifting, Herbie Hancock? Cool jukebox!
  8:25pm Dean:

We're all remote. Even in live settings, we're remote.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm coelacanth∅:

dr.j -drifting, possibly my favorite Jimi Hendrix song
...i'm also a big fan of drifting blues by Chuck Berry (a Charles Brown song but i like Chuck's version better)
i don't know Herbie Hancock's drifting
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm coelacanth∅:

tuesday might be laundry day part 2, if i have to go downtown again. i'll see if Herbie's drifting is in that jukebox
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm doctorjazz:
