I Heard The Beloved One Hurling Her Handfuls of Dirt (2/9/14)

Feb 10, 2014


This week I was joined by the delightful likes of master/monster reedsman Jon Davis and Alden Ikeda, a drummer who somehow manages to stay funky and cerebral at the same time. These two guys, I'm tellin' ya, they came up in the studio and just belted out thirty minutes of earth shattering free improvization. I'm very excited to get back a silky smooth, mastered recording of that session. Besides those two maniacs, I played a lot of Europeans on the show this week. The great sixties groups of Manfred Ludwig and Irene Schweitzer graced the airwaves, as well as new and hauntingly beautiful music from Bohren & Der Club Of Gore's new album Piano Nights. A fellow called me in the studio and told me Milford Graves was his drum teacher at Bennington College in the early nineties. Wowee zowee what a week!
