Good AM Dave, thanks for the midweek musical ruminations after Marvin
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 10:21:30 AM
Good morning, kentman. Glad you are joining us.
kentman 10:22:47 AM
missed most of Marvin, liked what I heard at the end though
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 10:24:08 AM
It's always worth listening to Marvin. He presents things nobody has heard before.
Bud Burroughs 10:25:40 AM
I'm always amazed at how much really excellent new music he finds.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 10:26:47 AM
And Marvin has SO MUCH music, he can only present things once, and has to move on to other great things.
kentman 10:30:22 AM
I need this vibe today, Dave, to much disturbing Normal to think about
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 10:32:04 AM
Thanks, kentman. That's how I was feeling as well. It's either that or retreating into Mickey's Grim Rippers (Monday mornings darkest show).
jimbeaux 10:58:20 AM
yell-0 DTO! Enjoying Netsanet immensely.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 10:59:58 AM
Glad you enjoyed it, Jimbeaux.
Bud Burroughs 11:05:00 AM
Such a great David Torn record - second only to Polytown for me
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:06:47 AM
Yes, Bud. It's under appreciated record by an under appreciated guitarist on an under appreciated label.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:07:41 AM
CMP was one of those labels that I would just buy automatically.
Bud Burroughs 11:10:04 AM
Yeah, CMP was kind of an edgier ECM, weren't they?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:11:10 AM
Yeah, now that you mention it. Never thought about it, but they have plenty of similarities.
Bud Burroughs 11:12:50 AM
Just glancing through their catalog - I forgot they released all those great Trilok Gurtu albums.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:13:25 AM
And also Trilok Gurtu's mother. Part of their world music series.
Bud Burroughs 11:14:33 AM
I've heard that his mother was a musician, but don't think I've ever listened to her
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:15:09 AM
Classical Indian singer, specializing in semi-classical.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:15:21 AM
Shobha Gurtu.
Mark 11:43:20 AM
Great sound/vibe as usual. Never know what shade of the TNA to expect each week :)
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:43:44 AM
Thanks, Mark.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:44:52 AM
During another show last week, there was some chat about microtones, and I thought of this Turkish recording by Emre Saltik.
jimbeaux 11:47:05 AM
Excellent! Following along with the words.
jimbeaux 11:47:28 AM
microtonal hoedown
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:48:23 AM
Hoedown? Now that you mention it....
jimbeaux 11:49:05 AM
got some flashes of blistering banjo-esque brilliance in there
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:49:46 AM
🪕 Yes indeed.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:51:08 AM
The similarities made me choose bluegrass as the adjacent track.
Bud Burroughs 11:52:07 AM
Yeah, good fit! And since he got over his brief "commercial country" flirtation, Skaggs is the real deal.
kentman 11:58:27 AM
Great show, thanks for the vibe
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:58:30 AM
Yes, Bud. Quite a contrast in Ricky Skaggs' recordings. His bluegrass is great though.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ (host) 11:58:58 AM
Thanks, kentman.
