  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    A cool track, but according to a poster on YouTube: " This is a lovely track, but Kippie Moeketsi, Victor Ntoni and Danayi Ndlovu (check spelling) are *not* on this recording!! The personnel is Tete Mbambisa (piano, composer and arranger), Barney Rachabane (alto), Duku Makasi (tenor) Basil Coetzee (tenor), Sipho Gumede (bass) and Gilbert Matthews (drums). The photograph is by Ian Bruce Huntley. "

    Recorded at a May 1, 1970 concert in Bern. Mr. Webster appears on 5 of the 11 tracks while Mr. Wilson is on all of them. If one can get past the very prominent thudding of Isla Eckinger's bass, the two masters offer up a "Stardust" to savor. The main flaw of this disc is it's over so quickly, but each track is a delight.

    Just by looking at the title, "Limbo Jazz" is now stuck in my head, it is that powerful an earworm!
  4. The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Cheesy Movie Circus Tour came to town last night, so I got to see Joel and the new bots riff on this awful film: This was a suitable flick for the MST3K treatment because it is a really bad movie. A plastic surgeon on the lam (perhaps a former Nazi?) comes into control of a third rate traveling circus. Over the years, he meets a series of deformed young women and uses his surgical abilities to make them beautiful. Then he makes them perform in his circus. His circus becomes famous and successful and when any of beautiful his young patients/performers threaten to leave, he has them killed in an unfortunate performance "accident". This was billed as Joel Hodgson's last MST3K tour, so I'm glad I was able to attend. The jokes around the movie were really good; the stage bits they did in between the film riffing was kind of weak. (Really disappointing to see The Avengers -- not those ones, the real ones -- producer and man who brought us Emma Peel, Julian Wintle, associated with this film.)
  5. What music did you buy today?

    Arrived in today's mail:
  6. Star Trek TV Show

    I liked the way they sometimes played with the opening credits "Ain't nobody gonna pay no attention to what's goin' on long as they got them names up there."
  7. Terry Jones (1942 - 2020)

    Is it at all possible he is merely pining for the fjords?

    Fortunately, the canned applause is omitted on this CD version of In Person.

    It seemed okay for a "live" recording from 45 years ago. Dave Holland's bass is a little too prominent in the mix for my taste (at times he sounds like he must be the co-leader of the group) and Richie Beirach's piano is a little distant. But I overlook all of that in a second for the sake of Stan Getz's breathtaking (it literally was that for me, at least) performance of "My Foolish Heart". As Joel Dorn states in his liner notes, "Everything you'll every wanna know about him is in that song".
