Oversleeping as a result of the election night excesses. Dummy arrived as a fairly beaten up item but then I didnt pay much for it. Bear played the 1958 Green Dolphin Street to get me going. I did my first LFM shout about it. I have been pulling together bits of my musical history the idea is to give DJ something to read as he gradually returns to digital life also to remind myself as well of course. Bear span Unbending Trees the First Day. Then Lullaby of Clubland which always sounds good to me.
I have to write about Argentina and Mexico which should be OK I went to Mexico City once (from Detroit via LA). The MC taxis were said to be dangerous but the art and architecture were good. I turned the bear off and played Dummy -very atmospheric, disturbing as well so much so that its a surprise it was such a big hit. I think the electric piano is an amazingly potent sound I love the one on the Solid Air album for example which comes from Pharoah Sanders I believe. After Dummy I had to play Weekend Players to balance things out.
Still need the momentum to get back to Williams on D&R. I have remembered why I thought Deleuze was dangerous. Via Linkedin I have got myself lined to an innovation method which goes by the name of FORTH. I think it may be Dutch.
MDR played Jaco Pastorius, Cannonball Adderley and John Coltrane. The bear showed up in the middle to check I was still listening I gave him the usual F5 treatment. Night in Tunisia by the Jazz Messengers was the result. I began to wonder about sampling some of the jazz grooves.
