Little Danny's avatar View Little Danny's profile Options

Postwar atmospherica. High bop modernism and Afro-Latin sounds, twilight exotica and soundtrack moods, soul stompers and weepers, hypnotic R&B and blues, mystical '60s pop, lonely country, lonelier rock 'n' roll, instrumental weirdness, electronic creaking. Bringing worlds beyond into the worlds at hand.

Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:05pm Little Danny:

Oh wow, didn't know the Salena Jones version
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:05pm Little Danny:

Hyde, I think you should stay! How can I make that happen?
Avatar Thu. 1/5/17 10:06pm still b/p:

Play things with plenty of atmosphere and appealing vibes but with back-masking that'll encourage productivity.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:07pm JtotheK:

@Flash - I had to duck out for the 2nd half of your program, will catch that in the archives - i very much enjoyed that first half, looking forward to the rest!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:07pm Little Danny:

How's everybody doing this evening? I'm on the cusp of a cold, the worst place to be.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:08pm Little Danny:

Heya still b/p! I think I can accomplish that minus the subliminal productivity messaging
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:09pm melinda:

I'm doing well. No cold.
Avatar Thu. 1/5/17 10:09pm Flash Strap:

Thanks J-K!

I'm at the end of a cold, but it's not so hot here either LD
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:11pm hyde:

@LD haha, i want to stay. but i have to get up at 6. EST. just can't! it's cool, i always soak up the archive :)
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:13pm Little Danny:

@hyde, I reluctantly accept your exit. I mean, 6am is brutal
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:16pm melinda:

No one should have to get up at 6 am.

Hi Danny and listeners, greetings from sweltering Melbourne in the land of Oz, love Ernie Fields, made some killer instros

I like this Mona Davis.

Hellooo Pistol Pete! Thanks for joining us across so many time zones
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:22pm Little Danny:

I'm glad Melinda! You have good tastes
Avatar Thu. 1/5/17 10:30pm still b/p:

Not a complaint or boast, just a note of shift: I was up before 6:30 every work day for almost 25 years. Verrrry different now -- oh, don't see that hour too often -- since a large work change led to irregularities in schedule and life. Gotta be at a work location by 5 AM one day later this month though.
Let the boys tell better tales, (when you get a chance later past the blue flame's glow):

Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:36pm Little Danny:

I had to wake up at 7am for years for a gov't job. That was rough enough for me. Every morning I felt a antipathy to the world
  Thu. 1/5/17 10:37pm MrFab:

I work evenings now. It's a drizzly night, Bunker Hill, downtown LA. Which isn't as noir as it sounds. But I did bring a trenchcoat!
Avatar Thu. 1/5/17 10:37pm northguineahills:

Very nice Peter Wright into an old favorite John Chowning piece.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:39pm Little Danny:

Even if it's not as noir as it sounds I can totally picture that, Mr. F. Do walking basslines follow you around?
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:40pm Little Danny:

thanks NGH, and thanks for being here! I've tried to keep up with Wright's discography, but it's overwhelming
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:03pm JtotheK:

oh my, three rooms is fantastic!!!

Thank goodness this is something that Little Danny uses for good and not evil.

Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:12pm Little Danny:

Haha, I made you wade through some high-minded headiness before we got to the R&B, J2tK! Glad you dug
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:12pm Little Danny:

Hi Coel! Thanks as always!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:14pm Little Danny:

@Doug 45s don't hurt people, only people blah blah blah. Hello sir!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:15pm Doug Schulkind:

Happy to oblige.

@Little Danny
In your hands, 45s are holey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:18pm JtotheK:

@Danny -- I enjoyed the headiness, too, especially the John Chowning.
Avatar Thu. 1/5/17 11:19pm still b/p:

Some family member at Christmas wore one of them necklaces featuring a metal (or real plastic one dipped?) center-hole adapters for 45s.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:25pm Little Danny:

@still b/p: neato, is yours a record-collecting family?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:25pm Doug Schulkind:

Will catch the rest from Horizontalland. Thanks for the magnificence, LD!

This Human Touch tune is nice

Thanks Pete!
  Thu. 1/5/17 11:30pm Pete from Melbourne Austraila:

Dig the George Braith as well, one of my fave LP's is his Happy Soul with grant Green, think from 66?
Avatar Thu. 1/5/17 11:32pm northguineahills:

Gotta boogie, thanks LD!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:33pm Little Danny:

Don't know Happy Soul, Pete - thanks for the tip, tho
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:34pm Little Danny:

thank YOU ngh - g'night, and see ya around!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:35pm JtotheK:

note to self: it's been a while since George Braith 'extension' lp has been on the turntable...give a listen soon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:38pm JtotheK:

from my internet research:
George Braith is a soul-jazz saxophonist from New York. Braith is known for playing multiple horns at once, a technique pioneered by Roland Kirk. Braith is credited with the invention of the Braithophone, two different horns (straight alto and soprano) mended together by extensions, valves and connections.
  Thu. 1/5/17 11:38pm Pete from Melbourne Austraila:

Sorry Danny, thats Laughing Soul by George Braith, on Prestige, features Grant Green, and Little Flame is a lovely gem
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:39pm JtotheK:

i wonder how many braithophones are in use today.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:42pm Little Danny:

J2tK, that's right! I saw Braith play live with one o' them in the early aughts.
Avatar Thu. 1/5/17 11:42pm still b/p:

Noooo, LD (going back a bit), no crate-diggers or vast-music-brain-filers in the family that I know of. The particular sister just seemed to find novelty, nostalgia and distinction in her jewelry choice -- a token of growing-up years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:45pm JtotheK:

great show this evening, Little Danny -- thanks!
  Thu. 1/5/17 11:51pm Pete from Melbourne Austraila:

Love the Amos Milburn, track never heard that one before,and was a hugh fan way back in the late 70's as a young R&B collector, he always had a killer band and dunno who his guitarist on this one, but wow!! Grat show as usual, thanks Danny
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:53pm Little Danny:

Thanks all! Pete: I thought of you during that Milburn solo. Don't know who the guitarist is either, though, alas
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/5/17 11:56pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks LD!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:59pm Little Danny:

The pleasure was mine, coel!
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 1/6/17 12:00am Little Danny:

Anyone care to spell "A mon Ami Lucien Jolibois" phonetically before I embarrass myself?
Avatar Fri. 1/6/17 12:06am still b/p:

Ah mohn ah-MEE loo-SHE-AWN Zho-lee-BWAH.
Pure unsupported stab! And late!
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 1/6/17 12:08am Little Danny:

Thanks still b/p! I was too late to keep myself from some butchery
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 1/6/17 12:09am Little Danny:

See y'all around these parts, friends! G'night!
