    Generally speaking I'm slow to assemble a program. I'm open to suggestion from anywhere beforehand. But when it all comes into focus and the thoughts, pictures, and memories build a structures that is ready. I leave a window open, just in case.
    • Rambler is a fun tune by tuba master Bob Stewart. I'm so glad Arthur Blythe has included the lower register in so much of his work. Grandpa had a Rambler and it was something else entirely.
    • Ken Thomson is Who To Watch For. Out of the blue is this tune called Welding For Freedom and it justifies my strategy of leaving a window open. Win/win.
    • Nathan Hubbard collect SDMA for Best Jazz Album. There was a lot of texture in the eleven o'clock hour. Tons of great names contributing, and Nathan making it bubble. xlnt

      Sometimes there is no difference between hearing and thinking about the music.
      • Charles Lloyd has a new two disc set of 1965 concerts, six tunes of length and intensity. Jazz at it's finest.
      • Saxophonist David Borgo has a new disc loaded with talent and modern ideas.
      • J. Otis gets nostalgic when he hears Horace Tapscott because J. Otis was there back in the day when the music was still in the cauldron. The Dark Tree

      Sorry for the delay...
      • Mama Tokus came to the station to interview with J. Otis Williams. I can say without hesitation that she is a showstopper.
      • Complete memory wipe until today, the 5th of October, as I prepare the post for the 2nd.
      • The Collective We bravely fought La Jolla traffic to get to Bird Rock Coffee Roasters yesterday. Mama Tokus and Robin Henkel were bluesy and raucous and had a scene going on, regardless of who was paying attention. Mama told us about Totnes Town Transition, which completely added another dimension to her luminescence.

      Whatever You Do, Don't Call Yourself Radio!
      Blog Name: Riffs on RadioAuthor: Ann Bauer , Underwriting Account ManagerPosted on: September 22, 2014

      Chances are, if you don’t work in advertising, you haven’t given this idea a second’s thought.  But, but those of us in broadcasting, semantics can be everything! And I just made a deliberate choice; I used “broadcasting,” instead of “radio.”  That’s the discussion:  The word, “radio.”  Media types from everywhere are starting to shy away from using the word.  They are afraid that identifying as a “radio station” brands them as old fashioned, backward-thinking, static.  In other words, the exact opposite of what a thriving communication vehicle has to be in today’s world.

      The most recent buzz came a week ago when the monolithic Clear Channel changed its name to IHeartMedia. “iHeartMedia reflects our commitment to being the media company that provides the most entertainment to the most engaged audiences wherever they go, with more content and more events in more places on more devices,” said Bob Pittman, Chairman and CEO. 

      Some people in the business paint this name change as the tolling of a lone church bell. Michael Harrison, talk show host and publisher of RadioInfo, wrote  “The systematic abandonment of ‘Radio’ by ‘Radio’ is a disturbing half-baked trend, that although understandable in the big picture of communications, poses an unnecessarily sped-up threat to the livelihoods of everyone in the radio business – not to mention the fundamental role of audio-media in both the spoken-word and musical arts.” {{split}

      While I appreciate the fact that communications have been forever changed (I don’t call my kids, I text them.) I don’t think Clear Channel’s name change exacerbates the death of radio, any more than VHS tape caused the death of television. It wasn’t recorded programming, but the emergence of so many channels, many delivered in new ways, has drastically reduced the viewership of the Big Three networks, but people still spend hours in front of their  screens, watching --- something.

      You read it everywhere, Content is King.  Content sources, whether broadcast, webcast, or recorded, are in greater demand than ever.  The variety of options available has created a more discerning consumer, who selects the distribution hardware to connect to that content based on a number of options.  A medium that provides content that consumers want, and can get easily, will hardly fall out of favor due to its name.

      More years ago than I care  to count, I was a fresh, baby media buyer, at a local agency, I still remember the astonishment in a VP’s voice when I suggested that a client, a car dealer no less, consider using radio to reach the target audience, as a more  affordable option.  RAAAAAAADIO???? His voice echoed down the hallways. At that time, the common wisdom was that car dealers advertised on television. Period.  “Why on earth would you suggest RAAAAAAADIO???” I told him.  We tried it.  It worked.

      It still works. 

      “Radio” is nothing to be ashamed of.  Using the word, “radio,” is not damning.  As active participants in the 21st century, we broadcast music, and we also webcast.  We have a lively interactive media presence, and a huge base who have download for our mobile phone apps.  We publish eNewsletters and post listen-at-your-leisure recorded programs via our website.  All this, along with a variety of youth-oriented music education programs, springs forth from our call letters. 

      The folks at Clear Channel can dub themselves whatever they want.   After all, a rose by any other name . . . right, Will? 

                                                                                                        - 30 -

      If you are interested in learning more about Radio,and specifically, how underwriting on Jazz 88.3 can help market your business, contact me!  AnnB@jazz88.org, or 619-388-3301.  I look forward to talking with you.

      The flugelhorn can sound really nice and one of the most notable practitioners of the instrument has passed away. Kenny Wheeler would open his tunes to interpretation by some of the top Jazz musicians of the time. He was widely admired and it only takes a quick listen to appreciate his accessibility.

      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.

      3 Giant Losses for the Art Form, Daniel, Gerald and Joe
      Blog Name: Home Page NewsAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: September 15, 2014
      The last few week's have provided major blows for Jazz.  We lost one of our very own here in San Diego (Daniel Jackson) but also Gerald Wilson and Joe Sample.  These men were integral to the art form as composers and arrangers.  Their trumpet and piano, respectively, lent to the honest voice of jazz music.  For Gerald, it began in the Jimmie Lunceford Orchestra in 1939 when he replaced the star trumpeter in the group at the time (Sy Oliver). Joe's contribution started in hard bop and grew into many different styles of playing. Both men led bands and forged new roads. Their music and jazz history will preserve forever. 
      Brother Jack McDuff - Jazz 88 Artist of the Week for September 15 2014

AllMusic.com's Ron Wynn calls McDuff "A marvelous bandleader and organist as well as capable arranger..." and about the work on his instrument "...one of the funkiest, most soulful styles of all time on the Hammond B-3."  Here's our AOW version of the Portrait In Jazz show that will be be airing on Wednesday, September 17, the 88th anniversary of his birth in 1926.


      Tune into Jazz 88.3 and Jazz88.org all week as our hosts play the music of this versatile artist. Read the entire article for more facts about Brother Jack and your chance to comment on your favorite tunes...

      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.

      Jazz 88.3 will be hanging out at the San Diego Blues Festival, a benefit for the Jacobs and Cushman San Diego Food Bank, Today (Sunday) at the Embarcadero Marina Park North. This year, come out and groove to 18-acts, including Eric Burdon & the Animals, Elvin Bishop, Tommy Castro & the Painkilllers, Blues Hall of Famer, Lazy Lester and more. In San Diego County, 462,000 people live in poverty and face “food insecurity” which means that little or no food is available at home and they often will not know where they will get their next meal. With that being said, the mission of the San Diego Blues Festival is to provide great blues music at an affordable price and raise money to support the battle against hunger in our community. So come out and hang out for a good cause! We'll see you there!

        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."

          Great comments, Bill and Richard!

            • 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.

          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.
          Thanks for listening.
          Charlie Haden 1937-2014
          Blog Name: Home Page NewsAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: July 11, 2014
          A Jazz Great of the Modern Era has passed away. Bassist Charlie Haden was musical before he could walk and his influence is like a major branch of the Jazz Tree. He always created on the highest level, and he is remembered as a warm and giving individual. There will be much written about him in the coming days. Take a minute and read or hear something by/about/for Charlie Haden and just kind of dig that quietly.

          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.
          • Rudy Royston- Gangs of New York- 303
          • Horace Tapscott, so much
          • Solo 1 gets a shot in the final minute...stoppage time goal!

          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.
