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.

Flash: hoping to maintain a bit of yer delectable mood-setting mastery, at least for a bit.
Avatar 10:06pm Flash Strap:

if anyone can do it, and do it better besides, it'd be you my friend
Avatar 10:08pm Little Danny:

Thank you!
Avatar 10:12pm Flash Strap:

oh shit man, i've been putting together a show themed around "funk eschatology" as a concept

so this track is blowing my mind
Avatar 10:16pm Little Danny:

Ha - I need to send you a rip of that LP. Cool artifact, cool listening!
Avatar 10:18pm Flash Strap:

that'd be great, i'd love to know what the rest is like and spend some time with it
Avatar 10:22pm Flash Strap:

i'm still with ya for a while, but in a silent way. gone but not forgotten

show's another killer thus far, not looking like it'll let up either
Avatar 10:27pm geezerette:

Hi Danny & Evan, I'm working while listening but I'm curious how you're using the idea of eschatology; literal end of jazz and funk as forms, or the continual shifting of form? Interesting!
Avatar 10:31pm Little Danny:

Hi Geezerette! I didn't use eschatology track for anything besides good music and cool vibes, but I'm guessing Flash could provide much insight into his own plans for it
  10:31pm Lore:

Speaking of versions of Lonely Woman with lyrics, you might want to check Marzette Watts' version if you're not already familiar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_B5p0dTzkk

Enjoying the show as always!
Avatar 10:31pm Little Danny:

Whoa, thanks Adam! Never seen that one before
Avatar 10:32pm geezerette:

Thanks Danny, and it's great music!
Avatar 10:34pm Little Danny:

Sometimes ya just gotta go with a classic or two
Avatar 10:45pm Little Danny:

God this Sandals album is just the best mood-surf album ever
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm melinda:

Mood surf, yeah! I like that description.
Avatar 10:48pm geezerette:

Yeah that's gorgeous. :)
Avatar 10:48pm Little Danny:

Hi Melinda! And thanks!
Avatar 10:50pm Little Danny:

Geezerette: have you watched Endless Summer? One of thee great surf docs + soundtracks
Avatar 10:53pm geezerette:

Yes, more than once! I love the home movie-ness of it and weird time travel quality. And of course I love surf music.
Avatar 10:55pm Little Danny:

It is *such* time travel
Avatar 11:04pm geezerette:

Hey Melinda!
Avatar 11:07pm geezerette:

Milt Jackson, like ice in a silver rimmed glass.
Avatar 11:09pm Little Danny:

Ah, yes, indeed - that was one of his moodiest icicles!

  11:20pm Doug Schulkind:

Your fine sonics are helping to distract me from my brand-new throbbing root canal. Thanks, Lil' Danny!
Avatar 11:21pm Little Danny:

Doug! Happy to ease the pain my friend
Avatar 11:35pm Little Danny:

Dreamy Mancini. I love this soundtrack.
  11:36pm Alf From Upstate:

Love this Mancini. So stripped down and lovely.
Avatar 11:38pm Little Danny:

I know! His other soundtracks hinted at that sound but never quite went there the way Arabesque did.
  11:42pm Alf From Upstate:

I would've loathed this 30 years ago. Now I love it. Funny how that works.
Avatar 11:43pm geezerette:

Another great show Danny, thanks for doing it!
Catch the rest in archives, may have to click whole thing!
Avatar 11:45pm Little Danny:

So happy to have you playing along, geez'!
  11:47pm Doug Schulkind:

It will be my profound delight to play you all some fine music and hang with you for an hour or three tomorrow.

Another sublime effort, Dan!
  11:55pm Dano59:

Awesome 45s, Danny! Always great to hear Memphis Slim ...
Avatar 11:59pm geezerette:

Doug,west coast hours may mean archive tag for me but love your show man! GTD stream is THE BEST.
Avatar 11:59pm Little Danny:

I look forward to groggily opening my office laptop tomorrow and finding you there, Doug!
Avatar 12:00am Little Danny:

Thanks Dano! That's one of my fave Memphis Slim 45s
Avatar 12:00am Little Danny:

G'night all! Thanks for the great vibes!
