FYI: Today's show will be light on "rock" and heavy on "classical" -- whatever those two words really mean.

interesting how there was some attention paid to the person -shadowing, depth, details in the hair,etc.; and the fire looks like a piece of orange construction paper glued on

Hi Tony + Chatters!

Easy. "Rock" is old Humble Pie. "Classical" is Aerosmith.

We were talking about how you turned me onto the RR and how he put out their records. Crazy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 12:31pm Webhamster Henry:

Lots of just 7th-related pitches. Of course the duck-cally sounds slide around somewhat.

Ahh apparently, they are Goose calls!
  Tue. 7/16/19 12:33pm Dean:

Kyle Gann's recent work has gotten rave reviews in Fanfare magazine, which generally covers "classical" releases. The magazine's tag line is "The Magazine for Serious Record Collectors." I've never quite gotten what, precisely, is "serious." The records? Or the collectors?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 7/16/19 12:34pm listener james from westwood:

Was thinking, "Am I hearing the Doors?" In a way, yes!
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 12:36pm Tony Coulter:

The Charles Rice Goff III thing is a whole album of Doors covers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 12:37pm Webhamster Henry:

The magazine for Flattering Record Collectors.

I once heard at Tower Records that Christian Rock outsold Jazz and Classical combined.
The reference in that anecdote may date it, but I bet it's still true.
  Tue. 7/16/19 12:41pm Dean:

Actually, Fanfare reviews are generally really insightful, well-informed, and humble. More than 500 pages of wall-to-wall reviews (there are almost no margins on the pages, and no illustrations other than ads) every two months. Lots of disagreement among the reviewers.

Oz Fox, guitarist for Stryper, used to hang out in my apartment in Whittier many years ago. Is Christian Rock still a genre?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 12:51pm Webhamster Henry:

Sorry! I haven't seen it for 20 years, so I should shut up instead of just typing all the time.
Kyle used to do the new music reviews in the Voice.
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 12:55pm Tony Coulter:

Yes, I remember Kyle Gann's Voice reviews. I also remember that those reviews were pretty widely disliked on the Downtown scene, because they were often pretty negative (about Downtown musicians, anyway). Although Gann did call David Garland the new Schubert!
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 1:02pm Tony Coulter:

@ Henry: More just intonation for you....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 1:03pm Webhamster Henry:

"All we had that indicated the tuning was a DX7 synthesizer patch."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/16/19 1:05pm Webhamster Henry:

Unlike my DX7 (which is completely tunable thanks to the third-party E! board), I think this may be set up with a keyboard splt and two different tunings on each half, but I'd have to see the patch they are referring to!
  Tue. 7/16/19 1:06pm Dean:

Gann also claimed that when he first rode a subway in NYC and saw a sign for "WTC," he wondered why the subway was promoting Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier. Uhm, really?

Hey Tony - really enjoying this Riley piece. I'm most familiar with his minimal organ/keys/synths work - this is really something!
  Tue. 7/16/19 1:08pm Dean:

(He wrote this shortly after 9/11, but specified that his first subway ride was in '81.)
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 1:09pm Tony Coulter:

Hiya, Tom! I also haven't heard any other Riley pieces like this one.
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 1:25pm Tony Coulter:

There's a new (English-language) book out about Luc Ferrari -- the only thing that's scaring me away is the fact that the foreword is by Mr. music-doc-talking-head Thurston Moore. Maybe not a good sign...

Oh, wait: scratch that. It's written by his wife, who is also a fine composer, so it probably is worth getting: www.soundohm.com...

Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 2:14pm Tony Coulter:

The liners notes for this piece essentially say, "It shoulda been a hit."
  Tue. 7/16/19 2:15pm the Asshole Grey Machine:

Just got into Renaissance and Greenslade - so looking into furthering my interest in classical
  Tue. 7/16/19 2:17pm Dean:

Paul A. Snook of Fanfare said of this recording, "As more of his large-scale works appear on disc, it is becoming increasingly apparent that Herbert Howells (1892-1983), the precocious pupil of Sir Charles Stanford, was a major figure of the English musical renaissance of this century—far more substantial than the limited, albeit superior creator of organ and liturgical works which his quondam reputation of two decades ago would have warranted. "
Avatar Tue. 7/16/19 2:18pm geezerette:

This was probably too radical for contemporary audiences. Too minimal, too quiet.
  Tue. 7/16/19 2:19pm Dean:

Snook dubs the Three Dances "melodiously vernal."

  Tue. 7/16/19 2:51pm Dean:

Lambert finished composing this in July '51, conducted its premier later then month, then died a few days short of his 46th birthday on August 21 the same year. Martin Anderson wrote in Fanfare, "This is an important release, not because the music is especially earth shattering (it wasn't supposed to be: You can't dance on shattered earth), but because it lifts the lid on a piece of musical history that has been largely lost from sight. Balletomanes and British-music buffs can descend on this disc without fear; and the rest of you will find much to please, despite the occasional longueur."
