Welcome to the chat. I’ll be multi-tasking for the first hour this morning, so I might not be prompt with my replies.
Teresa Peacock 10:04:43 AM
This Estampie is so gorgeous! Who is the vocalist?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 10:07:13 AM
Estampie credits 2 female vocalists on this disc, so it could be either Sigrid Hausen or Cornelia Melian. Not further specified.
Mark 10:11:22 AM
Ha multitasking not allowed :) we unsophisticated listeners require ur immediate response to help us understand the playlist;)
Mark 10:13:06 AM
I gotta say I’m always curious what direction/ vibe the program goes in week ti week ?!
Bud Burroughs 10:14:16 AM
Well, today's description says "Some music inspired by The Mahavishnu Orchestra", and that sounds good to me!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 10:15:29 AM
The Mahavishnu set(s) kick off after the next mic break.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 10:16:42 AM
But Mark, I know my vibe tends to be dark.
Mark 10:22:26 AM
Have to respectfully disagree disagree agree about vibe darkness / I’d say interesting and a little to extremely different every week !:)
Mark 10:24:09 AM
*too many disagree words there / the bots maybe taking over all our devices
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 10:24:22 AM
Thanks, Mark. I'm glad my show keeps your interest. Like most 'PRB DJs, our tastes are broad and we try to squeeze in as much variety as we can.
Teresa Peacock 10:28:15 AM
I was trying to remember what the 'Reis Glorios' reminded me of, and finally recovered it. I don't know if this forum allows it, but here is a video of the similarly gorgeous 'Carolan's Lamentation for Charles MacCabe': https://youtu.be/CELR9NlkVLQ
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 10:29:57 AM
Thanks for that link, Teresa!
Teresa Peacock 10:32:33 AM
Your welcome! :-) Any excuse to share this O'Carolan tune. To me, nothing says November like this song.
Bud Burroughs 10:40:10 AM
Steve Morse of the Dregs is one of my all-time favorite guitarists.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 10:40:55 AM
Agreed. A phenomenal talent.
Mark 11:09:13 AM
Re: sonar photo/ is that a Rorschach /personality test for us ? :)
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:10:29 AM
Participation is optional. Since they are so chill, I opted for lying down on a wooden deck.
Mark 11:12:24 AM
Hahaha I’m afraid to respond/ may reveal too much about me :)
Bud Burroughs 11:30:27 AM
I love all these Zorn Masada-oriented projects.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:32:27 AM
Yes. I just discovered them, and am suitably impressed.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:33:49 AM
Saw Zorn at the Knitting Factory in the early 90's - and was partially deaf for a few days.
Bud Burroughs 11:36:33 AM
I have a bootleg recording of the Masada Marathon shows from 10 or so years ago. Very cool stuff.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:38:58 AM
Nice. Not many Masada recordings out there.
Bud Burroughs 11:38:27 AM
Have you heard the Simulacrum recordings? He doesn't actually perform with them, but it's metalish organ trio (with John Medeski) playing Zorn compositions.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:39:41 AM
No, but I'll look into it. Thanks for the tip.
Bud Burroughs 11:41:29 AM
He was at one of their Philly shows a couple years ago, and I think I slightly offended him by asking how much was composed vs. improvised :) He shoved a score in my face and said "I composed all of it!"
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:42:57 AM
Touchy. At the show I saw, Nonesuch was trying to videotape it, shining a bright light
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:43:19 AM
and he almost punched the guy, unscrewing the bulb.
Bud Burroughs 11:44:52 AM
Ah, well, I guess he's earned the right to be a little touchy. Here's a video I took at a 2015 Simulacrum show in Philly: https://youtu.be/fMsMbd7Vor8
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:49:18 AM
Thanks, I'll check it out later today.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:57:12 AM
Next week, Nov. 25th, I’ll be on the road during the show, so the Chat Room will be closed. 😕
Mark 11:58:26 AM
Thanks for the show !
Bud Burroughs 11:59:11 AM
Happy travels - don't catch any viruses.
