Seemed to have a proclivity for meth if I remember :lol:

Oh, I forgot about that guy. A long-lost episode of As the TWFF Turns.


Yeah, but that one was a lot funnier. Prolly a different guy. Loved to use all the emoticons too

It's not often someone new goes Full Troll and starts making threads. I still think he's been here before.

Anyway, a word from our sponsor...

I missed these guys when they came through town not long ago. Yay for yootoob!

They play a week at the Village Vanguard every year, and every year it's the same week that John Zorn plays at the Stone. Exact same nights. So I miss them a lot too. I wish they would consult me about scheduling conflicts :roll: I also missed their special surprise midnight set at Winter Jazzfest (even though I was one of a very small number of people who knew they were playing ahead of time) because I couldn't deal with the shitty venue they stuck them in... but I am determined to see them again! So much fun.

That would be a special treat to sit in the Village Vanguard. I haven't been in NYC in 20 years, and I didn't get to see a 10th of the things I want to experience there. #fanboy

The Coltrane/Dolphy sessions from there are some one my all time favorites

You're welcome to my extra-deluxe air mattress anytime you want to visit for a little jazz holiday :)

Random Jazz Thing: walked through Penn Station for something and they had a live jazz band playing near the Amtrak waiting area. Nothing too exciting, but nice to see! Sponsored by Jazz At Lincoln Center in celebration of Black History Month. Never would have occurred to me to check out what the train station was doing for Black History Month...

Just discovered this great album. Too expensive for me (even used on cd!) so I'm glad it's available on Youtube:

Just caught a bit of a composition on the radio. At first it sounded to my ear almost like Harry Partch. Turns out it was Muhal Richard Abrams. Not familiar with him but I'll be checking him out. 85 years old & working in NYC since the mid 70's. Sarah?

I'm afraid I don't know him, although according to wiki, he does seem to move in my circles a bit...

Well I'm going to have to investigate if for no other reason than to see if there is any kinship to Partch. Some odd sounding instruments on the snippet I heard

Kamasi Washington and the Next Step

Live in San Diego, doing two covers - Cherokee, an old jazz standard, and Clair De Lune, with a great arrangement of the Debussy theme
