Happy 74th birthday yesterday to Mr. Tatas Matoes!
  12:05pm Dean:

Is today Roscoe Mitchell's birthday? It's my wife's, too! This explains why I've never seen them photographed together.

Oh, yesterday. Never mind.

Today is a Satchmo-themed show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Jeff Golick:

Hi, all!
Happy bday to Dean's wife!
And also Louis Armstrong.
And, I believe, Sonny Simmons.

First set to Louis, @doca. Then we branch OUT.
  12:23pm Dean:

Wait 'til I share this news with the wife! Louis and Sonny...wow.
Avatar 12:23pm Jeff J:

Hey all!

@doca - some branching OUT within the Louis set, too!
Avatar 12:24pm Jeff J:

Thanks for that link, Doug. Do you have that Armstrong book of collages?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm Doug Schulkind:

Happy to see James "The Fire Every Time" Baldwin happy in that bottom-of-playlist photo. I absolutely adore JB.

Nope, Jeff J, wish I had that Louis book.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27pm Jeff Golick:

Yeah, we thought we'd try and show a happy Baldwin and a less-than-happy Armstrong, for a change.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm Jeff Golick:

Surprisingly heavy Fats Waller tune.
Avatar 12:35pm Brian in UK:

Hello folks.

I remember a million years ago, a friend of ours played trumpet. He kept playing this Louis track (cannot recall it now) every time it got to a certain part he said did you hear that it was amazing. Each time it eluded us, we were just not ready for the man.
Avatar 12:36pm Brian in UK:

Is JB doing the Sirtaki?
  12:37pm Gary at the Laundromat:

What be this kraziness?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm Jeff Golick:

@Gary: this be the history of jazz collapsing in on itself.
Avatar 12:39pm duke:

Louis Armstrong covers Pharaoh Sanders!? Never heard this before.
Avatar 12:39pm doca:

@JeffG/JeffJ: I was in Buenos Aires last week and found some unknown to me reissues of Argentinian free jazz LPs from the late-60's/early-70s. It all seemed very nice expect that they were too expensive for my "taste" in that moment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Jeff Golick:

Hey, Brian. Not ready for the man - who is?
Avatar 12:42pm doca:

@JeffG/JeffJ: by "free jazz" I must say kinda fusion adventuresome jazz, one of them was Quinteplus and the other was a kinda of spoken word play together with some free music, or so the description said. Anyway, next time I'll be there I'll try to bring some of it.

Sweet guitar
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm Doug Schulkind:

Back in the late '70s, I remember hearing on the car radio a track that sounded for all the world like Louis Armstrong singing "The Creator Has a Master Plan" and nearly drove into a ditch. I waited forever to hear the DJ back announce the set but he never did and, after a while, I started to think I imagined it. From that point on for several years, I used to ask about it every time I walked in a record store that looked like it had a decent jazz section.

I remember walking into J&R Music World one day in early 1983. I had just moved to NYC and I figured the whip-smart New York jazz clerks would know something about this record. I went up to a guy behind the counter and asked about the Louis song I'd heard on the radio. I will NEVER forget the look of paint-peeling contempt he shot back at me. It was as if I had asked him if Louis Armstrong had sex with ferrets. (And ferrets were still illegal in NYC at that time.)

Flash forward a few years and I'm thumbing through record bins in a vinyl shoppe in New Haven, CT, and I find a copy of a French RCA release of Armstrong's final recording session—containing the coveted song. I let out an involuntary WHOOOP that startled everyone in the place.

From that moment on, every damn time I went back to J&R I looked for that same asswipe employee, but never saw him again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm Doug Schulkind:

Right around that same time, I actually applied for a job working in the stockroom at J&R. I did not get the job. All prospective employees were forced to take a lie-detecter test, and apparently they didn't like my answers. True story.
Avatar 1:21pm Brian in UK:

Doug, I had an odd experience with a ferret owner at the vets one time. Small man, large wife. Nice ferret.
Avatar 1:23pm duke:

Lie Detector Guy: Did Louis Armstrong record The Creator has a Master Plan?
Doug: Yes
Lie Detector Guy: Liar. Get the hell out of here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm Doug Schulkind:

Actually, one of the questions the Lie Detector Guy asked me was "are you gay." I've always wondered if my answer in the negative came up a "lie" on the test!
Avatar 1:27pm doca:

On Baldwin and jazz I only know that William Parker tune, "James Baldwin to the rescue". Great stuff.
Avatar 1:28pm Jeff J:

@doca - That Parker tune just missed the cut. Last minute omission.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm Jeff Golick:

@Doug: I'm no EEOC lawyer, but I"m pretty sure that's an illegal question.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Doug Schulkind:

I have always imagined there to be a direct connection between Archie Shepp's tune "Rufus (Swung His Face at Last to the Wind, Then His Neck Snapped)" and the character Rufus in James Baldwin's "Another Country" who jumps to his death off the George Washington Bridge.
Avatar 1:33pm doca:

@Jeff J: It's an 18-minute track, I understand that. And besides, I'm pleased to hear Baldwin-related tracks that I didn't heard before or didn't know that were related to him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm Jeff Golick:

@Doug: YES. Here, too.
  1:37pm Dean:

@Doug: Clarence Thomas was an EEOC lawyer, and even he's pretty sure that was an illegal question.

Clarence Thomas can go fuck a ferret.
  1:40pm Dean:

Took the words right out of my, uh, mouth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm listener james from westwood:

Doug, you get those types of asswipes in the comic-shop and boardgaming/roleplaying-game worlds, too, often enough for me to no longer visit shops for those sort of things. And they're usually even worse that way with women customers, which is a whole other anti–Comic Book Guy rant. Fuck that noise; Amazon, baby. (Or CD Baby, baby.)
And holy shit with that "are you gay?" question on the text. Were they screening candidate for the fuckin' CIA?!
Avatar 1:50pm duke:

Maybe the lie detector guy wanted a date
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm Doug Schulkind:

I love that thought. Allows me to think back on that crazy episode in a whole different and more humane way. Thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm Jeff Golick:

Next up on Merv: Doris Day!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm Doug Schulkind:

Doris Day's version of "The Creator Has a Master Plan" is not to be underestimated.
Avatar 2:32pm duke:

Personally I prefer the Spike Jones version.
Avatar 2:36pm Dervish:

One. Of. My. Favorite. Records. !.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Jeff Golick:

Hey, Dervish. Was hard to pick just one cut!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm Jeff Golick:

Sonny Simmons turns 81 today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44pm listener james from westwood:

Sonny deserves a big-ass cake for this cut alone. Sweet stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Doug Schulkind:

To think this great artist was essentially living on the streets (Washington Square Park, in San Francisco) for the better part of a decade. Go fuck a ferret, America!
Avatar 2:52pm fred:

@Doug: What makes you think the sex would be consensual? Why the hate for ferrets?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm Doug Schulkind:

Now I feel awful.
Avatar 3:00pm duke:

Thanks Jeffs and Doug - great show as always
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm Jeff Golick:

Thanks as always, sir duke!
Avatar 3:01pm fred:

What duke said!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm listener james from westwood:

Thanks most kindly, Jeff & Jeff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm Jeff Golick:

Glad you could make it, and thanks to you, @fred and @listener james!
