If Music Could Talk - PODCAST - Nov 9, 2014 - mis-matched genres

Curiosity can mess up the flow of a set...  

However,  in this case, perhaps there was never much hope of a flow.

This show started off with three really crackly ghanaian 45s that skipped frequently...  

(*They've been re-ripped and replaced in the podcast with no skips and fewer pops and cracks   - maybe it was the needle or arm weight being unbalanced on the station turntable..  )  

But I'll be honest, this set is basically not flowing very well / at all

Here you will find a ton of music that I'm either currently "checking out" for curiosity's sake,  or music that I am totally into..     but there's very little soulful blending here.....     just ...      song a.   wow..      song b.    hmm... interesting       and so on...

Some of the records i played this Sunday came from a junk store record hunt in NoVa on Saturday...  

.... Others were chosen during an afternoon of digging through a few stacks of random vinyl on Sunday afternoon.     

I'll try to plan the set better ahead of time next week (but I'll probably include more random finds from this weekend).     If you like anything you here, please leave a comment here!  

  I am grateful to WRIR and our community of supporters and volunteers to be able to do this show every week...  it's always an interesting journey and I hope y'all enjoy it too... (even if you don't always like everything you hear)


Thanks for Listening!

"ECM - A Cultural Archaeology"




My mother, Monica Rumsey, who runs her own editing company (Scholarly Editing, Inc.),  just gave me her copy of an incredible book that she copyedited called ECM:  A Cultural Archaeology.  

 Anyone who loves Jazz  -- especially the late 70s experimental stuff that musicians like Keith Jarrett, L. Shankar, Stanley Clarke, Jan GarbarekSteve Tibbets, Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, Art Ensemble of Chicago, and so many other legendary artists created on the ECM label (Edition of Contemporary Music) -- should definitely pick up a copy of this book.   (As far as fancy art books go.. for 50 dollars it's certainly worth the price in my opinion.)     


One of the Editors of this book is Okwui Enwezor, Nigerian-born American curator, art critic, writer, poet, educator who specializes in art history.  You can read about him in this article announcing that he will curate the 2015 Venice Biennale.   Over the years, I've become a fan of many of Okwui Enwezor's publications (my mother has worked on a number of his recent ones)  including Contemporary African Art since 1980 - also an absolutely incredible book - which he put together with Chika Okeke-Agulu.


Other authors of ECM: A cultural Archaeology are Markus Mueller (Editor), Diedrich Diederichsen(Contributor), Kodwo Eshun (Contributor), Renée Green (Contributor).     


BUY IT HERE
Art Ensemble of Chicago - 1979


Pat Metheny Group

Paul Bley - 1970s




By the way,  one of my favorite records of all time, and the album that made me really start paying attention to ECM, was "Bye Bye Safe Journey" By Steve Tibbets.  



 Highly recommended... you can buy it here (or via emusic or itunes) ... but I personally suggest the vinyl!)
