-this was a marathon show; 5 hours minus 15 minutes for the john thompson show. and it was a good marathon. I was actually happy with all 5 hours.
-I really like every go:organic orchestra cd I've heard (there at at least 3). something about the jazz/world fusion that they do is really great. and yusef lateef can still play, despite being ancient.
-the embarrassment/minutemen set was inspired by jon solomon in the honor of michael jackson's recent arrest. that embarrassment cover is pretty damn awesome.
-abner jay is this really strange outsider blues by a one man band. I don't know too much about him, but I definitely enjoyed what I heard.
-the a frames actually sound surprisingly similar to six finger satellite.
-I don't think the sonic youth song from the love dolls superstar soundtrack is a cover (though that song is an iron maiden song), but I do know that it's pretty great.
-two versions of albert ayler's "ghost" today. the gary lucas version is good - when he has an acoustic guitar in his hand, he can do amazing things. and of course, the original (the short version) is pure beauty.
-the hungarian folk song that I played came from a folkways compilation that puts together some of the folk songs that bela bartok recorded in his ethnomusicological studies in the early 20th century. great stuff, especially when there is instrumental accompaniment.
-no show for me for the next 2 weeks. next week is thanksgiving (of course), and the following week is orchestra concert week, so I have rehearsal.
