In a program completely reassembled this morning, we try to break up the usual formula. So on offer we present, among other things, tracks from two of the essential jazz albums of 1993, summer jams (and remember these are my summer jams (one of which breaks the Unpopular Music Manifesto, but also is the Unpopular Music Manifesto)), some early music, and some electronic doo-dads.
Please note - this is not my family, nor am I in France. There are cows nearby though.
Update: or not. As you were.
There's a family to-do out of town this weekend, so today we are presenting an episode from the archives, specifically the episode from October 3, 2015. The original posting described this program as "quite possible to enjoy"
No festive holiday programming for 4th of July (or Canada Day for that matter, not even Paul Bley), just the usual jazz and other for the last full day of the first half of the year.
We do pay a brief tribute to the late Geri Allen, who unfortunately is one of those musicians who always impressed and intrigued me, but whose work I've never gotten around to exploring in depth.
There is some accidental continuity throughout. In most of the first set selections, fours and eights are traded with the drummer in various ways. The selections for the second hour's set feature many quotations.
