Even after review the vibe was cool. Rest In Peace, Kenny Wheeler. We all know the future is now.
  • Gnu High, 1975 recording. Kenny Wheeler with Keith Jarrett, Dave Holland, and Jack DeJohnette. Played the whole thing. Brilliant isn't strong enough. Neither is stunning, nor is mindblowing. Heyoke and Gnu Suite are long pieces but the intensity never waivers. Smatter is only six minutes but its punch is not pulled. Throughout, the artistry is astounding.
  • David Borgo has some new music coming out and the Progressive Nights staff is understandably thrilled. Positive anticipation but I hope the new disc title is easier to say than Micro Temporal Infundibula. Hard to type, even.
  • Taylor Ho Bynum is riding his bike from Canada to Tijuana. Hope to get a word as he zooms past...Stepwise.
Thanks for listening

There was something in the air that made hesitation seem inexcusable.
  • The Diminished Triangle by Gerald Wilson was grand and sweeping, varied and flexible, a showcase for strong writing and playing. He contributed greatly, rest in peace.
  • The Great Lake Suite will prove to be problematic because it's pretty deep in the dig/digest/grok sense and it provides endless variables of any/all elements. Wadada Leo Smith, Henry Threadgill, John Lindberg, Jack DeJohnette.
  • Charles Gayle is commitment personified. He is like a laser beam of intention balancing between Larry Roland and Michael TA Thompson.

Daniel Jackson 1937-2014 - Resources and Remembrances
Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: Vince Outlaw Posted on: September 3, 2014
From the Jazz88.org Home Page News Article this morning, Daniel Jackson, 1937-2014

It is with a heavy heart that Jazz 88.3 has learned of Daniel Jackson's passing this morning. He was a first rate composer, saxophonist, pianist, educator and mentor. Daniel's passion for the music and the energy it creates was unmatched. Born in La Jolla and graduated from San Diego High School, he was the epitome of San Diego Jazz. A staple. His collaborations and relationships with legends like Lenny McBrowne, Art Farmer, The Adderley brothers, Jimmy Smith, to San Diego's own- Marshall Hawkins, Charles McPherson and Gilbert Castellanos is a testament to his gift of expression. He will be cherished always. 

Read the full article for more link resources and remembrances of this largest of beings on the San Diego Jazz Music scene and your chance to leave your own comment at the bottom...but first, here's Daniel, with Marshall Hawkins and Mike Wofford from the 2013 San Diego Music Awards where he received a Lifetime Achievement Award,

    Straight to bullet points:
    • Did not know that Joey DeFrancesco plays trumpet. The new disc with Bobby Hutcherson and Billy Hart is sweet but my ears went 'wait, what?' Had to go to the liner notes. Did not know that.
    • Viper's Drag makes me pine for Air Lore. Long time in between, less so if I had more time and attention span.
    • Marc Cary surely must be in the running for top pianist. Not competitively or categorically, but thinking about unique voice and interaction and dynamic group chemistry...right up there, near the top.
    Somebody asked me if I mean it when I say "Thanks for listening." Well, you know, of course I mean it. The whole show has been about intention and then at the end I'm gonna bs? No, I am not gonna. Thanks for listening!

      Initial impressions for three bullet point items regarding 8/14:
      • Ian Tordella made Stereolab sound like a genius. Pretty sure I said Radiohead on the show. Either way, Tragic Comedy is great.
      • Still really like the Steve Wilson/Lewis Nash "Duologue." That's not going to change either, especially after Friday shift where Freedom Jazz Dance is solo drums. nice.
      • Davis played by Archie Shepp on tenor sax and Buell Neidlinger on bass somehow makes me feel like Dali played by Coleman Hawkins. The sound is deep.
      • Jeff Parker Trio is a shapeshifter, fitting anywhere as needed like the Index of Possibilities.

      Rahsaan Roland Kirk gets the birthday spotlight feature and recognition for being very far out front and totally at ease with it. If he created only "Three For The Festival" his role would have been fulfilled. That line has a critical mass that will not be denied. As it is, there is more inspirational material for musicians and listeners alike. Elsewhere...
      • Steve Wilson / Lewis Nash "Duologue" goes straight onto my list of favorite duo recordings. Buster Bee, the Haden duos, Waldron/Lacy. Yeah, Duologue is on that list.
      • In Between pretty much anticipates Dysnomia although it's easy to say that in retrospect. That's the only reason except also to mention that Dawn of Midi is returning to San Diego 9/20 at Carlsbad Music Festival. Dysnomia is actually dangerous when consumed live.
      • Kirk closes with deception in the form of Untitled Blues and Lester Leaps In. Gotta watch your sacroiliac.

      Flying Home Generates Sparks on The Jazz Morning Drive!
      Blog Name: The New Jazz Thing with Vince OutlawAuthor: Vince Outlaw Posted on: August 4, 2014
      I have the honor this week of hosting The Jazz Morning Drive, Monday through Wednesday, and took advantage of an opportunity to play an extended cut of "Flying Home" from Lionel Hampton with The Just Jazz All Stars, which was recorded 67 years ago on this day, at the same concert that created the more well-known, and critically acclaimed "Stardust" (a fact that is mentioned on the Jazz 88 Home Page today under our "On This Day In Jazz History" feature). The tune I played was a rollicking swinger and I have to share a couple of emails sent to VinceO@Jazz88.org about that very tune...

      Bill was energized enough to put out a little coin...

      "Wow!  That Flyin home @ 6:58 knocked my sox off.  Best stuff I've heard since I lost my JATP LPs.  Buying  the one you played ASAP.  Those guys really cooked.  Haven't heard Slam Stewart in ages.
      THANKS!!"

      And Richard shared a great story about another version of "Flying Home"...

      "You don’t know me, but I’m as regular listener in the mornings and a happy to have you spinning for a spell. I’m a native Chicagoan an former vibist, who ran an audio recording facility there in the late 70s. I left home for here in ’92. Andy’s was my regular hang back on the block. That’s where rush hour jazz originated a different regular band every evening from 5-8. 
      Thursdays was the Hubbard Street Swingers with John Young, Barrett Deems and Truck Parham on bass; two tenors, Johnny Board, who replaced Jacquet in Hamp’s band, and Eddie Johnson from Louis Jordan’s band,  Don de Michael, the Downbeat columnist, on vibes, replaced by Willbur Campbell after Don’s demise. Wilbur was the very best bebop drummer in town, and the great Jo Belle on vocals . 
      They ended their second set with a rousing version of Flyin’ Home with Board duplicating Jacquet’s solo note for note, and everyone stood and cheered at the coda."

There is an intangible quality in her music that gives it a life of its own; life that reaches out and touches the souls of the people that hear it.

      • Jazz 88 Speakeasy: Evan Christopher Idyllwild Jazz In The Pines Interview, Monday, August 4, 2014 (14:45)
        • 7:20 PM PT - Evan Christophercombines virtuosity, immaculate taste, and enthusiasm with a commitment to exploring the full range of possibilities in the New Orleans clarinet tradition. His highly personal brand of "contemporary early-jazz" strives to extend the legacies of early Creole clarinetists such as Sidney Bechet, Omer Simeon, and Barney Bigard. Critics remarking on Christopher's dynamic expressiveness have coined his style "close-encounter music" (NEW YORK TIMES) and have called his respect for the music traditions of New Orleans, "a triumph, joining the present seamlessly to a glorious past." (THE OBSERVER, UK). He plays with a sextet which includes recent Jazz Live San Diego artist Henry "Skipper" Franklin on Saturday of the 2 day Idyllwild Jazz In The Pines Festival, August 16-17, 2014.

      One of my first go-to albums as a young DJ was Fried Buzzard by Lou Donaldson. Idris Muhammad was there. And now there is the sorrow of his passing. He was artistic and he was solid. Beyond that, he recorded in the upper echelon of the modern cats with traditional roots. Dig him.
      1. Lou Donaldson - Midnight Creeper
      2. Ahmad Jamal - Big Byrd
      3. Joe Lovano - Friendly Fire

      To pay proper tribute to bassist Charlie Haden would take some hours, even days. A national holiday would work but two hours is all I have. This program focused on three things; Ornette Coleman, Keith Jarrett, and the duets.
      • Death and the Flower - this brews into a creative storm without leaving a mark.
      • First Song - (for Ruth) is often added, for his wife. Pretty tune, with Pat Metheny. A lot of people love him, Metheny.
      • Circus '68 '69 - from the carousel intro to the chaotic finale, a great translation of political dystopia. Music Liberation Orchestra.
      • Back Home Blues - a Charlie Parker line from Quartet West. Cleanse the palate, ready to continue.
      • Folk Medley - little solo tucked into the middle of Don Cherry's Art Deco. Proof of Haden's value.
      • Blues In Motian - Could have done two hours of Montreal Tapes and been happy.
      • Pocket Full of Cherry - Keith Jarrett plays alto sax, Dewey Redman on tenor. 60th minute at full tilt.
      • For a Free Portugal - with Paul Motian.  see this
      • Out of Focus - with Don Cherry.
      • O.C. - with Ornette Coleman.
      • Blues Connotation, Folk Tale, and Ramblin. This was it. This was where I started. One of the places, anyway.
      • For Turiya - with Alice Coltrane on harp. A heavenly sendoff. Happy/sad right now.

      Missed the live blog on Thursday night, went camping, came back to World Cup final. Exhausted of every bit of concentration but there are still highlights that shine through.
      • More research into George Russell is warranted. A great period in the early 60's with incredible timeless creativity of arrangement and playing. Ezz-thetic, Stratusphunk, In K.C.
      • Trane, India, extended group, Village Vanguard. Free Time!
      • Rob Mazurek, Skull Sessions. Could solid matter become more dense? When do layers of sound collapse and/or expand by telepathic insinuation? Yes, and on cue, generally speaking.

      Here is an example of cross-media promotion, I assume, or in other words pushing the same material through a new outlet. On facebook last night I posted "On My Mind: Index of Possibilities, Transitions, and several Blind Shots." The Index of Possibilities is automatic within the concept of Creative Music. Transitions are useful/mandatory juxtapositions of texture between moving Index Items. Blind Shots are simply a blind shot or more.

      The trials and tribulations of presenting live radio programs. It's not from nothing that I have a little grumpiness right now. Oh, that was two days ago. See how time flies?
      • Tiki taka with JD Allen, then Rudy Royston, then Todd Sickafoose. Not choreographed but available without hesitation so when the opportunity shows itself there is only reaction, no thinking. Aside: tiki taka is the quick flowing ball control made famous by Barcelona FC. What? Creative Music is like soccer! You heard it here first.
      • Steve Lacy played Monk better than anyone. Tempo and intervals, tricky but just right.
      • The second hour may be available at the Speakeasy beginning Sunday morning, for a limited time.

      You might notice the subtle realignment with the blogname. If not it's okay, but it will bring into sharper focus the team effort being invested into Progressive Nights, the new sound of jazz radio (not a trademark phrase but it ought to be). Monday through Thursday, 10pm to Midnight. Chad Fox, Tony McGee, and yours truly. Let me just go ahead and preempt the suggestion of an over-the-line team called "The Progressive Knights." First fail is no vulgarity in team name. Sorry.
      • Go listen to Horace Silver right now. Anything you can get to. No need to go overboard. Just listen awhile and savor the sweet bluesy jazz.
      • I keep coming back to the Index of Possibilities. Much of my programming spins out of this concept. One key to the Index is don't get too tense.
      • Go listen to Eric Dolphy. Maybe you think you aren't ready. Maybe you're fooling yourself. Start with his version of "Tenderly."
      Thanks for listening.

      A funny thing happened on the way to Free Time. It started two hours early with Percussive Profiles!
      • Bernard "Pretty" Purdie to Elvin Jones "The Drum Thing." Then Peter Erskine for sixty minutes. E Ticket Ride right there. Some heavier lifting helps one appreciate a lighter load. I'm talking about duration.
      • Larger groups in this evening's Creative Music section. 8 Bold Souls, Big Trouble, David Murray, and Keefe Jackson. Small groups allow for the space and structure but larger groups seem to swell and teeter and then all the directions that music starts flying in like a blizzard or levitation.

      The Index of Possibilities is deployed transparently throughout any programming span, regardless of projection intent. It illuminates the phrase "more of a guideline than a rule" and The Index can also take the heat in a pinch, as in "that escalated quickly." 
      • Mantra by Alice Coltrane to begin. Joe Henderson and Pharoah Sanders pretty much on edge from beginning to end. Not much more, not much less. Mantra.
      • Song for Charles by the Art Ensemble of Chicago to start Free Time. No one has ever knitted the sounds created into such a solid aural fabric of fascination. Maybe it's just me. (paris, 1969)
      • Make your own Index of Possibilities. Wrap your brain around it, see what it can do for you. Everybody's different!

        Tonight's program shamelessly pandering to the broadest demographic of Jazzheads if they are free wheeling modernists unconcerned by implications of structure and/or the suggestion of reconstructed textures vis-a-vis oblique voicings. It's a three day weekend where we should be more thankful than Thanksgiving. Game On!
        • I felt like the first hour should have been enjoyable if one is anywhere near the above rhetorical description.
        • Sun Ra was born 100 years ago, hence the spotlight tonight. I just call it Sun Ra Day. It could be any day of the year. It will always be special. Besides, I don't want to get into it about the Saturn thing.

        • Julius Hemphill was more influential than we may ever know. The alto saxophonist and composer taught David Sanborn and Tim Berne at different points, on the album "Diminutive Mysteries (mostly Hemphill) with The (now completely divergent) Students paying tribute to The Master.
        • Nathan Hubbard brings the final installment of Encinitas And Everything After to the Taoist Sanctuary on Sunday the 25th.
        • Freefall is so abrupt and subtle at just the right times. Giuffre was a genius.

        I have been operating on the assumption that it's the 9th of May. Forty five minutes left in the day and I just found out it's the 8th. Could be worse, somehow. And now, Program Notes:
        • John McNeil arranged a great spin on Giuffre's 'The Train And The River,' and I played 'Sugar Craft' instead of 'Whatever Happened To Gus' by MMW. Once a year I make myself go to a different tune from Combustication. It's only because WHTG is the most perfect assemblage of ideas ever.
        • Each layer of Free Time has brought some new angle to fascinate me so I'm hoping it's doing the same for you. Joseph Jarman, Steve Lehman (spotlight on Damion Reid), Steve Lacy, Shadow Boxer's Delight (unreal), Jason Kao Hwang, Tin/Bag (Free Time can be pretty, too), and Andrew Hill to end the show.
        • May 25th, check the Jazz Calendar for the Jazz Workshop event. 
        Thanks for listening.

        An image from somewhere in the pages of William S. Burroughs comes close to dramatically summarizing my mind of late, "a blizzard of glass shards." Google doesn't back me up on this but it doesn't matter. Tonight was really about making it "just this" and not "that."
        • Dusk, by Andrew Hill, sounded especially beautiful tonight. The Sun Died, as reconstructed by Ellery Eskelin, was superb. Apparently, context is everything. Some close calls really showed the value of my Index of Possibilities theory. Similar to Cecil Taylor's "...just don't hesitate."
        • Cecil Taylor, Dewey Redman, and Elvin Jones. Lots of space and power.
        • Grachan Moncur III has a real way with making a tune hum. Love And Hate, from Exploration.
        Thanks for listening. 
        Suenos: The Cinco de Mayo Show
        Blog Name: Johnny D's Jazz JournalAuthor: John D'Agostino Posted on: April 30, 2014
        The theme for the May 4, 2014 edition of Johnny D’s Jazz Journal is “Sueños: The Cinco de Mayo Show”. “Sueños” is Spanish for “dreams,” and in this case it refers to 19th-century Mexico’s dreams of freedom following centuries of domination by Spain and France; coincidentally, the word sueños also kept popping up in the titles of the songs I was auditioning for this show, so it became a recurring motive.

        Like Jazz and Blues, nonprofit organizations were created by Americans, in America.  The music and the organizations sprang up with a spirit of kinship and mutual understanding. The music is an expression of the condition of life: what’s happening, why it seems to be happening, and what, (if anything), we can do about it.  giveBIG logoNonprofits sprang up in response to common needs, filling a gap where, depending on one’s point of view, government cannot, or should not, go; funding scientific research, or feeding the hungry, or making arts and culture available to entire communities.   Jazz and Blues - and nonprofit organizations of all types and sizes - serve the public good

        And they are funded, for the most part, by the very people they serve, and their loved ones.

          The interview with Nathan Hubbard went well for a high wire act, and all encompassing enough to obliterate any thought of Program Notes until Friday afternoon. Then it took another two days to get to it. So much for spontaneity.
          • Volume 4 of Encinitas And Everything After will be presented on Sunday, 4/27/14. Ogd_S(11) Translation Has Failed is a mobile unit and is fully accountable for processing Hubbard's ideas. Taoist Sanctuary, 4229 Park Blvd 92103. 8pm.
          • Klang is the James Falzone Quartet. They bring such energy and ability that I'm sure some promoter in town has an eye on them. Has to.
          • Between Bynum at the beginning and Cherry at the finish, Steve Lacy singlehandedly astounded the aural capabilities of man and machine. Gusts, in case you need to track it down.
          Thanks for listening.

          Progressive Nights concludes with the subtle textures and captivating inventions in the particular style as curated every Thursday night by yours truly. This might sound like a generic phrase cooked up before a pressing deadline, but it's the real deal. Get into The Speakeasy and have a listen. Individual experience may vary each week, but this is a long term commitment and relevant within its context.
          1. Yes I played "Western Wren (A Bird Call)" again. It's a magical interaction between Jeff Ballard drums, Lionel Luoeke guitar, and Miguel Zenon saxophone. Found on Ballard's Time's Tales.
          2. Yes the Rosetta Trio piece might have seemed out of place after "Bloodcount." But what a transition to "Lena" and the majestic power of Cecil Taylor. Free Time!
          3. Yes Todd Sickafoose Tiny Resistors came to the rescue at the very last minute. What a great night. Special thanks to Mark and Kimi from Brooklyn.

          O man. So involved with this show that Legal had to interoffice memo (as a verb) to remember Program Notes. It has not been uneventful.
          1. The shape of the first hour brings to mind that Liverpool is rolling and everyone else is hanging on, if that. Yeah, talking to you, Arsenal. But the shape, moving forward at every opportunity and asking questions, as they say. Questions need to be answered, or the answer will be provided. Trios expanding into sections and creative music...provides the answers.
          2. The second hour satisfied my basic parameters for Free Time. Something Must Happen. Almost always catches me looking the other way when the reaction is internal like physical/mental rather than perception or emotion. Anthem For The Moment by Dennis Gonzalez did that. Took the net away. Thanks man.
          3. John Scofield Uberjam Deux at UCSD Sunday night. check it

          I could review the many ways that creative music and jazz are redundant or at least a hair split. Maybe another time, if necessary. The point is that within the realm there is a niche, a tributary, a tangent, that is of but not within what you might regularly experience on Jazz 88.3. For programming purposes I call it Creative Music. And it's snug in the Progressive Nights zone. Be sure to check The Speakeasy to hear this and many of the shows on Jazz 88.3.
          • Horace Tapscott, then "John Coltrane" from Mister Billy Higgins (ecd 22061-2). I'm in heaven.
          • Kendra Shank and John Stowell are coming to the Museum of Making Music on April 19th.
          • "Orange Outline" by Franz Kline."When I paint a picture, I don't know every line in advance, but I know in general what I'm about."
          • Free Time was as much about texture as it was about technique. One of those I have a feel for, the other I can appreciate.
          • Epistrophy, any way, shape, or form.

          Two Things At Once
          Blog Name: Progressive NightsAuthor: Miff Mole Posted on: March 27, 2014
          Welcome to Progressive Nights, the dynamic programming direction in the late post meridian zone on Jazz 88.3 and jazz88.org. It seems like everyone is running from anything even vaguely approaching modern or avant garde...or Jazz, for that matter. Meanwhile, Jazz 88.3 is actually committing space and energy to current and historical developments in Modern Jazz Music. Monday through Thursday nights, 10pm to midnight. Progressive Nights.

          This is Miff Mole and I'm going to real time bullet list my show for 3/27/14. Not everything, but enough to get a feel for what's going on.
          • Right now it's 9:47pm, Barry is playing The Rich and The Poor by Keith Jarrett. It is definitely setting a mood in my music brain program list.
          • Opened with guitarist Joel Harrison's String Choir, music by, or inspired by, Paul Motian. (footnote: two things at once ain't easy)
          • Bassist Keith Witty and drummer Damion Reid are a molten flow for the Jonathan Finlayson piece "Circus."
          • Omission of detail does not reflect any particular agenda or preference. Voice activated blog would be great until the on-air mic is mistakenly cued by the operator and comedy ensues.
          • Michael Formanek and Jim Black were dangerous on "Thin Skin/Dangerous Crustaceans."
          • "Voices" from Bill Dixon's Intents And Purposes is familiar and provocative at the same time. The focus and execution is staggering, but that's what creative music does. (footnote: something else that ain't easy)
          • Listen to the show at The Speakeasy. It will be there by Sunday.
