Unstuck in time, The Avant Ghetto wanders through heavy folk, pastoral noise, spiritual rock, harsh jazz and other dimly lit corners of the universe.

Avatar Mon. 3/30/15 3:42am BEAVO:

The last time I saw John Renbourn was in the late 90s in Atlanta at a theater in the "hip" section of town on a Saturday night and the place was half empty but it was a great show he played solo. Thanks for the set.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 3/30/15 3:51am Jeff Conklin:

There's a "hip" section in Atlanta?
Avatar Mon. 3/30/15 3:57am Eiderdown:

Ha! I'm chatting with Uli from Bird People right now and this song comes on…WHOA

Cosmic, man. Cosmic.

It's a small world after all...
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 3/30/15 4:03am Jeff Conklin:

Ask him why he put the tape recorder next to a person with whooping cough at this performance?
Avatar Mon. 3/30/15 4:08am Eiderdown:

It's that terrible socialized medicine they have over there

I think I nodded off and just dreamt that Astrud Gilberto was jamming with Wayne Shorter

Maria Booker, Adam.

Avatar Mon. 3/30/15 4:27am Eiderdown:

Aw, well, I was asleep…didn't have Discogs handy at the time :)
That was great! And yes, this Trevor Watts track is smooth as well
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 3/30/15 4:31am Jeff Conklin:

A lot of funk for English dudes!
Avatar Mon. 3/30/15 4:36am Eiderdown:

Digging this tripped out Joe McPhee track...

Avatar Mon. 3/30/15 4:52am Eiderdown:

Sounds great. Talk soon...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/30/15 5:00am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Super Nova' album by Wayne Shorter was recorded a week or two after Woodstock Aug-Sept. '69. Something in the air?

@Ryab: ...if you're still around...For 'Folk', Sat. morning here is 'Shrunken Planet', & Irene on Tuesday eves has a lot of great acoustic & lower-key stuff...even John Allen veers into 'Folk' when the inclination hits...

Bonjour Jeff and listeners !

late, BUT the Avant Ghetto is one of the show that I always listen later and download through the app. Always a pleasure !
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 3/30/15 5:07am Jeff Conklin:

Hey, Pierre. Glad you made it and thanks for catching up later. The app is great for that....
Avatar Mon. 3/30/15 5:12am Eiderdown:

I'm back up for now…my youngest kid just peed in my bed. Looks like I'm sleeping on the couch tonight, ha. Keep it rolling Jeff!
  Mon. 3/30/15 5:17am mark:

revRabbit, "Bitches Brew" was recorded just a couple DAYS after "Woodstock." Something definitely in the air.
Jeff,@your earlier comment, yes, there IS a hip section of Atlanta--it's called the Virginia Highlands--a lot of beautiful old Victorian homes, and cool shops and restaurants etc. If Beavo's talking about the same place, I saw Leonard Cohen at that theatre in the 90s--one of the greatest concerts I ever had the pleasure of attending. I only lived in Atlanta for a year, but I loved it while I was there. So don't be so provincial, man.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 3/30/15 5:17am Jeff Conklin:

Somehow I feel like it's the music's fault, Adam. Apologies.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 3/30/15 5:18am Jeff Conklin:

I'm not being provincial, I just assumed was one of those cities not plagued by coolness.
Avatar Mon. 3/30/15 5:19am Eiderdown:

Well, If I piss on the couch tonight, yes, I will blame you Jeff
  Mon. 3/30/15 5:19am mark:

That can be one of FMU's daily slogans: "Music so good, you'll pee."
  Mon. 3/30/15 5:21am mark:

If you're using "cool" as a pejorative, then yes, it's no Brooklyn. But the people were very nice and the music scene is very healthy. Although I couldn't find a single jazz club. The rest of the South regards Atlanta as not being "truly" Southern and one told me "There's too many Yankees." Which is probably why I liked it.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 3/30/15 5:25am Jeff Conklin:

Good to know, Mark. Thanks.
  Mon. 3/30/15 5:56am Steve-O:

Hi Jeff, great show tonight.

P.S. RIP John Renbourn.
