New structure tonight...no opening bit!
  • Exclusive behind the scenes- Dave King and Ethan Iverson are in The Bad Plus and they were each on a different band in the second set. King with Chris Speed, Iverson with Billy Hart. Got that from TMZ.
  • 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.
Thanks for listening.

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.
