Now, you're either on the bus or off the bus. If you're on the bus, and you get left behind, then you'll find it again. If you're off the bus in the first place — then it won't make a damn.

This VW bus is the same color and maybe the same model as the 1973 VW bus that I used to drive when I was a teenager. It normally had a top speed of 60 miles per hour, but once I got it up to 70 driving down hill with a tail wind on a highway.

  Fri. 11/7/14 10:34am Listener Gregory:

Doug, did you hear any of Cecil Taylor's interview after that legal case was resolved? It was very "divergent" and quite entertaining to hear the reporters try to get him to answer their questions. BTW, I don't think he got all the money back, by any means. Sad.
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 11/7/14 10:34am duke:

I saw Raphe Malik many years ago. The opening group was pretty poor, but Raphe's set was amazing. Then he said now we're going to bring out "name of opening group" to join us. I thought, oh no this is going to be bad. Just the opposite, Malik set them on fire. Totally fantastic set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/7/14 10:37am Doug Schulkind:

@Listener Gregory
Yooks! I wasn't aware that Taylor didn't get the money back. I didn't hear the interview, but I read an account of it.

@duke
Malik is one of about a gazillion trumpeters who died absurdly early. Heartbreaking.
  Fri. 11/7/14 10:37am MrC:

Saw Lee Morgan at the Village Vanguard with his Benny Maupin group August 1971...totally badass..shot in Feb. 1972. I was totally obsessed with his music for years.

loved the CT
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/7/14 10:39am Alex In Illinois:

@tr:sh: agreed. I think Cecil Taylor is something that had to have emerged at some point.

@duke: I guess Malik knew that the opening act could play better than they were, felt sorry for them for having a bad night, knew what was needed to get them going, and ended up giving them and the audience a good night after all.
  Fri. 11/7/14 10:39am andujar:

And I agree about Raphe. Great underrated trumpeter.

Big Jay, 1951! True story: in the late '90s, BJM played a regular gig at an old night club in Santa Fe Springs, CA, the Rim Ram. His band included a woman on B3, a drummer, and a transvestite back-up sax player whose elderly mother came to hear her son. We heard Big Jay several times, once on New Year's Eve with a group of Swedish exchange students. Best NYE ever. BJ would stick the bell of his horn three inches from your face and blast until you'd stuff a dollar in it. BJ was working for USPS at the time, but his foot was in a cast, so he was out on disability. Not long thereafter I recall reading Robert Palmer's review in the NYT of BJM's debut in London, after which his musical career had revived.

The New England Aquarium in Boston is pretty good. I like the Science Museum, which I think is in Cambridge. It is near the banks of the Charles.

And speaking of Boston, MFA, Lizard Lounge, The EX & Ethiopian music...Hugo, you need to check out Debo Band someday. They sometimes do a residency at the LL, they sometimes play at the MFA and they played a couple times in cambridge with The Ex. Awesome Ethiopian grooves with the twist of adding accordian, sousaphone, heavy guitar, etc to the mostly traditional compositions. One of Boston's finest bands.

And speaking of Spearman: another great underrated artist. The first time I ever heard him and Raphe Malik they were playing in the same band at UMass. From teh very first note it hooked me. Just a powerful sound. The concert I am talking about was released on eremite as "The Short Form".

Han Bennink is known to play everything in the room (with the possible exception of the audience). He once asked me for several cigarette papers ...

andujar - u might like my amazing drummer friend's project Adventure in Sound if you like improv (although I don't think they have any future gigs lined up currently): https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL946F6CEEEC84D7BD

Looks like Deep Ellum has a nice selection of craft beers. Appetising ...
  Fri. 11/7/14 11:38am andujar:

I remember working "security" at a gig with Han bennink & Brotzmann and one task I had to do was "go find Han's pot. He just leaves it laying around".

@Chris: I have bookmarked it and will check it later.

@ Hugo: I'd join you for a brew at Deep Ellum if you like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/7/14 11:40am Doug Schulkind:

"Go find Han's pot." That sentence is music itself.
  Fri. 11/7/14 11:43am andujar:

I remember those exact words after all these years.

Speaking of pot, Louis Armstrong said "it eases racial tensions".

I'll be at A Friendly Inn at Harvard for three days from Sunday afternoon. Feel free to make contact. Funny name, and it looks cozy.

Those of you in Cambridge: is Weirdo Records still deserving of the name?

GIVE THE DRUMMER RADIO PROGRAMMING ALERT...
As Uncle Michael has stated, his Hinky Dinky Time will be kicking over the ashtrays and puking in the potted plants over here, at noon: wfmu.org...
  Fri. 11/7/14 11:51am andujar:

Weirdo is one of the best. Definitely deserving if you like the stuff we're mentioning here (and weirder stuff too). It is quite small but FILLED with records, CDs, etc.

Hugo: your Inn is not far from Weirdo.

That might be the best description of Hinky Dinky Posse Party as has ever been written.

Save a potted plant for this potted listener; will be ears on at HDT 'round 1 or so. Thanks muchly, Doug, for the fab show!

My one experience with Weirdo was formative. I ditched a conference I was attending to visit the store for the first (so far, only) time. I kid you not, as I approached the door a little bell sounded and I silently uttered to myself, "I'm going to find that Borbetomagus/Hijokaidan CD I've been seeking for ages here." And you know what? I did.
Avatar Fri. 11/7/14 11:55am still b/p:

And now, some reflexive geezer-speak: It still has notes and sites of interest, but, ohhh, the days of the OLD Harvard Square, with more character and characters, with the Wursthaus restaurant's world beer collection before world beers were a thing. Now you have more coldly anonymous corporate facades and ....A Curious George merch store.

Will do, James.

A fine show today, Sir Douglas. Thank you for it. I need to go check my makeup.

lovely version of this song

re: tuesday 11/11 GTDS I propose a theme of peace for Remembrance Day

I was taught by generations in my family and community that lived through the two World Wars to remember the atrocities of war. Their voices grow silent in the ground.

Lovely listening, today.
  Fri. 11/7/14 11:57am andujar:

Thanks for the tunage Doug, and the fun convo, folks.
