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.

Uncle Michael, a follow-up thought after comment references last night: to Nuages and Melancholy Serenade, add yet a third number linked by similarity -- If He Walked Into My Life, the song from Mame that was a big Eydie hit.

Again telepathic, @geezerette, I was just thinking how this show is "soothing balm" (an exact quote of my thoughts) for the moment.

Nope! That's Sarah Cantine's "Feeling Good" 45 I use.

So happy to be a barfly at this friendly fictional watering hole.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 8/17/17 11:24pm Little Danny:

Me too, geez. So happy to be the bartender around here
  Thu. 8/17/17 11:25pm Dean:

It occurs to me that the explanation is, as we should appreciate, materialist, rather than telepathic/transcendental. "Cool Blue Flame" rhymes, orthogonally, with "soothing balm."
  Thu. 8/17/17 11:27pm Dean:

Just as Gabor Szabo rhymes with Zsa Zsa Gabor.
  Thu. 8/17/17 11:28pm MrFab:

When I was a teenager, I had to go to the orthogonist to put braces on my teeth.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 8/17/17 11:28pm Little Danny:

Tell me more about these orthogonal rhymes. Sounds numerological
  Thu. 8/17/17 11:28pm Dean:

It's my thing. To me, "hambone" rhymes with "clambake."
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 8/17/17 11:29pm geezerette:

Gabor Szabo. :)

Dean, but I like telepathic/trancendental better just now...oh, and olives.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/17/17 11:29pm Doug Schulkind:

Never heard this one before and I ♥ it. Smiley Winters is a Bay Area legend.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 8/17/17 11:30pm Little Danny:

Oh yes, Doug. That whole LP is terrific.
  Thu. 8/17/17 11:30pm Dean:

I love all of olives. (My daughter's name: Olivia.)

Every good orthogonist, @MrFab, will instruct you to floss daily, from ear to ear.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 8/17/17 11:31pm geezerette:

I hope Smiley earned his name being cranky.

Thanks, @geezerette and @Little Danny. Even if it weren't, she's pretty enough herself to...ready?...transcend it.

Hi Danny and listeners, late coming to the party, well early afternoon down here, looks like I just missed one of my faves Gabor Szabo, will catch the show latter when the audio gets put up

  Thu. 8/17/17 11:50pm Dean:

I came late to Little Feat. Saw them live, with Lowell George, opening for ELO. It was impressive, despite my nonchalance. Now I live about four blocks from a stereo store run by one of the engineers of the double LP live album Waiting For Columbus, one of LF's finest. Hanging with him is fun. He reveals where the overdubs occurred...
Avatar Thu. 8/17/17 11:50pm Kris Holmes:

"Fool Yourself". My friends Dad is in Little Feat & wrote that one. The royalties from his drum break on it (sampled by A Tribe Called Quest et al) have been very good :)
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 8/17/17 11:52pm geezerette:

Think Lowell George lived in Topanga.

correct, my friends Dad still lives there
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 8/17/17 11:53pm Little Danny:
