"Ending" does make a great beginning !
  Mon. 1/2/17 12:04am Eric Hat:

Awesome start for the new year, Jeff. What up!
Avatar Mon. 1/2/17 12:05am geezerette:

Happy New Year Jeff and other listeners. :D
  Mon. 1/2/17 12:11am Dean:

In recent days I have acquired, inter alia, the 3CD Dust on the Nettles, the 3CD Sun Ra definitive singles collection, the 2CD Third Man Records collection of early 20th Century Greek village music, and assorted other thingums (not least, a Robert Palmer LP featuring a couple of guys from The Band!). The Bruce Langhorne tribute will have to join the pile.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/2/17 12:13am Jeff Conklin:

Morning, everybody. Good to be back with you...
  Mon. 1/2/17 12:15am KP:

Happy New Year, Jeff
  Mon. 1/2/17 12:15am Mike tp:

Nice n heavy
  Mon. 1/2/17 12:22am Erik in Michigan:

Greetings from the west coast - stoked to be listening live. Happy new year, all!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/2/17 12:24am Jeff Conklin:

@Dean: Dust on the Nettles is one of the best comps of the last decade. Nice pick up! And yes the forthcoming Langhorne tribute should make it into everybody's homes...
  Mon. 1/2/17 12:27am Dean:

Dust on the Nettles certainly has proven a mind-blower and eye-opener for me. Likewise, the Sun Ra comp. (And Irwin promises more goodies from Saturn!)
Avatar Mon. 1/2/17 12:45am geezerette:

this is gorgeous.
  Mon. 1/2/17 12:45am Erik in Michigan:

Really digging this
  Mon. 1/2/17 12:49am Erik in Michigan:

Oh wow, this is a lake Mary project/offshoot?
  Mon. 1/2/17 12:53am KP:

Gripping stuff this
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/2/17 12:55am Jeff Conklin:

Yes, this is Chaz (Lake Mary) with M Sage and some other cats.

  Mon. 1/2/17 12:58am gordond:

beautiful stuff
  Mon. 1/2/17 1:14am Dean:

Love this KTG record.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/2/17 1:17am Jeff Conklin:

He did this tune again with the Centipede group on that Septober Energy record. Elton Dean crushes on that one too....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/2/17 1:22am Santos L. Halper:

Howdy Jeff. Merry New Year and thanks for doing what you do. Don't get to check in live much, but don't think i've missed an archive. And in case i didn't mention it, loved your premium! Keep on...
  Mon. 1/2/17 1:24am Dean:

Is "Green and Orange..." one of the "parts" of "Septober Energy"? Never figured that out.
  Mon. 1/2/17 1:26am Erik in Michigan:

I need to listen to more jazz.
  Mon. 1/2/17 1:27am Patrick:

Really enjoying the jazz set thus far
  Mon. 1/2/17 1:28am Dean:

As do we all, Erik in MI. And more Renaissance dance music. But maybe that's just my thing.

One of the "thingums" I've recently acquired is Julius Hemphill's Dogon O.D. O.M.G. Good place to start one's jazz listening regimen.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/2/17 1:28am Jeff Conklin:

@Santos: Thanks!

@Dean: It's Part IV of Septober Energy

@Patrick: Thanks, man!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/2/17 1:29am Jeff Conklin:

Man, Dogon AD eludes me. I had an original in my hands once but couldnt afford it. Never even see the Arista Freedom reissue around anymore...
  Mon. 1/2/17 1:30am Dean:

Picked up the CD reissue for ten bucks.
Avatar Mon. 1/2/17 1:30am Hagbard Celine:

Merry New Year all...dig it
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/2/17 1:31am Jeff Conklin:

@Erik: I believe everyone needs to listen to more jazz. Check in with WKCR when you're looking for something to listen to, Monday nights espeically for "Jazz Alternatives"
  Mon. 1/2/17 1:32am Erik in Michigan:

Cool, I'll check it out. Sounds like digitally for now :/
Avatar Mon. 1/2/17 1:34am terribilia:

hello hello
Avatar Mon. 1/2/17 1:35am Hagbard Celine:

Who's better...this guy...or Neil Peart?
  Mon. 1/2/17 1:36am Erik in Michigan:

I don't know what I'd do without greater New York streaming radio. Used to get some of my jazz fix via the long rally, so thanks for the new source. Also, Elvin Jones could play a little...damn.
  Mon. 1/2/17 1:36am Dean:

Heh, not even a fair question. Unless you count this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxLTaY-r3xo

...in which case Neil and the boys most assuredly redeem themselves. My pick for best of '16.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/2/17 1:38am Jeff Conklin:

Hey, terribillia.

@Hagbard: Ha. Neil is great but Elvin is ELVIN
Avatar Mon. 1/2/17 1:40am Hagbard Celine:

Just being a wiseass. Regular high school debate question. Lovin this stuff!
  Mon. 1/2/17 1:43am Dean:

If only high school debates lapsed after high school. Sigh.
  Mon. 1/2/17 1:46am Erik in Michigan:

This is getting weird and good
  Mon. 1/2/17 1:48am Dean:

This has a King Crimson thing going on. Or vice versa.
Avatar Mon. 1/2/17 1:48am Hagbard Celine:

...and Soft Machine
  Mon. 1/2/17 1:48am Erik in Michigan:

Big time bitches brew / live at Fillmore east vibes
  Mon. 1/2/17 1:50am Dean:

There was that one time when Soft Machine opened for Crimson and Miles.
Avatar Mon. 1/2/17 1:50am terribilia:

this makes me wanna dance
  Mon. 1/2/17 1:50am Dean:

Avatar Mon. 1/2/17 1:50am Hagbard Celine:

...at Fillmore East?
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/2/17 1:51am Jeff Conklin:

Hard to Deny electric Miles influence on this, that's Terje Rypdal on guitar btw
Avatar Mon. 1/2/17 1:52am geezerette:

Jeff, your show tonight feels like a prayer and a blessing for the new year. I mean that in the widest,most universal way.
  Mon. 1/2/17 1:54am Erik in Michigan:

Yeah, the live miles album from Fillmore east (was actually one of the first miles Davis albums I bought, for some reason)
  Mon. 1/2/17 1:56am Erik in Michigan:

Yeah, this is the way to close this set. Love it.
Avatar Mon. 1/2/17 1:57am geezerette:

Or I could just say I love jazz.
Wishing good things for all in '17.
  Mon. 1/2/17 1:57am Dean:

I so clearly recall a classmate of mine in high school, c.1975, after I expressed my enthusiasm for Yes's Tales album urging me to listen to Birds of Fire.
  Mon. 1/2/17 2:06am Erik in Michigan:

I've been turned on to an insane amount of music via pre-show / set break PA music.
  Mon. 1/2/17 2:07am Dean:

Gary Boyle's Isotope deserves so much more attention!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/2/17 2:11am Jeff Conklin:

@geezerette: That's an amazing compliment, thank you so much.
Avatar Mon. 1/2/17 2:17am geezerette:

@Jeff: thank YOU! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/2/17 2:20am Scraps:

Love Henry the Human Fly, whole album
  Mon. 1/2/17 2:24am Mitch:

Nice set Mr. DJ
  Mon. 1/2/17 2:26am Dean:

Do you know Tony McManus?
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/2/17 2:30am Jeff Conklin:

Thank you, Mr Mitch.

@Dean: You talkin to me? I don't think so
  Mon. 1/2/17 2:32am Dean:

Yes. That Osborn reminds me of his work. Check out Ceol More and Pourquoi Quebec, as well as Maker's Mark, on which he features several gorgeous instruments.
  Mon. 1/2/17 2:36am Dean:

Looks like there's a bunch of YouTube stuff, including promotional ads and such. Maybe start here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwkjt9CE2ys
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/2/17 2:38am Jeff Conklin:

Cool, thanks, will check it out.
  Mon. 1/2/17 2:41am Erik in Michigan:

This is great. Have struggled to get into Jon Collin in previous attempts, but I apparently need to try harder.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/2/17 2:45am Jeff Conklin:

@Erik: Lots of great stuff on his bandcamp, try 'The Open Road' release.
  Mon. 1/2/17 2:56am Erik in Michigan:

Thanks Jeff, love the show.
  Mon. 1/2/17 2:59am Juan:

Happy New Year from Baja, Mr Conklin! Decided to shower and shave with your show, which takes a while with the safety razor, so I started with the proggy fusion and ended with the raga. Excellent show.
