No, not archived. Our schedule is up at the web site, but you have to catch them live. I know, I know. We don't have the man power for that. I'm full up broadcasting 31 hours of jazz per week. Tonight, the music of Thelonious Monk. So you're gigging Sunday night?

In the UK, but am doing some workshops/rehearsals before the gig. Yeah...gigs on a Sunday! Whatever next...;) Brilliant schedule though - I have to make a point of listening online more (made a similar resolution listening to something on Frace-Musiques the other day!)!

I would like to listen to this program via a device that requires me to input the URL for the stream. I tried

mms://bluelake.ncats.net/bluelake

as well as

http://bluelake.ncats.net:8000

without success.


Any other suggestion?

Thanks, but that doesn't work for me either. I am using a "Squeezebox" if that makes a difference.

Blue Lake only offers those two streaming options at this point, one which opens a Windows Media Player and another that allows for an MP3 stream (usually better with MACs). When you click on them the devices open up. I'm sorry I'm not familiar with the system you're working with and would bet that the NCATS people are not available to answer these questions on a Sunday.

I'm not quite that desperate for entertainment yet. Holed up with the computer and the CD player cranking out reviews as the deadline approacheth... Then off to KBCS for my show.

to hear an interview with one of the great masters anotated with live musical footnotes shows much preparation and is a musical delight.

Lazaro - Thanks so much for this program. I don't know whether it was the interview or your choice of Muhal Richard Abrams' music, but I've never before felt the connection with his music that I've felt tonight.

First listen tonight to your show. I'll try to catch it more often - unfortunately, I'm usually asleep weekdays when you're on the air.

Great music picks, Lazaro, and the interview segments are woven in quite well. And Nonaah on the way for reissue next year... if Chuck wants pre-orders, count me in.

aloc, Ghost, Paul: thanks for tuning in. As Chuck said after the interview, "You survived." Felt the program needed to be this length to do him justice, and tried to let the musical selections be dictated by the content of the conversation (i.e. Jason Moran following Muhal's talking about young individualists; or 'Blu Blu Blu' following on the W.C. Handy comment, or "Bloodline" for Redman, Henderson and Carter after the segment about meeting Benny Carter. Follow the artist.....

The piece from Nonaah is, according to Terry Martin's liner notes, based on limiting the range each instrument could play in.

This program will air again Wednesday from midnight to 3 a.m. Thursday morning.

And then, EdgeFest this Saturday. Looking forward to hearing Muhal live again.

You did indeed survive. I was taking notes on your technique... ;) And the whole program flowed very well.

MRA seemed quite pleased with the Handy link/insight you provided.

That comment about W.C. Handy consolidating the blues into form so groups could play it came from a conversation by Chuck Nessa when he was explaining Ornette Coleman's way of phrasing. In a sense Ornette related to the blues before Handy, i.e. having form follow the emotional message of the tune; emotion driving the duration of melodies.

In honor of Muhal Richard Abrams appearance with Roscoe Mitchell and George Lewis this Saturday at EdgeFest in Ann Arbor Blue Lake Public Radio will re-broadcast the three hour interview/music program which aired last Sunday. Please join Muhal Richard Abrams tonight, 10-17-07, at 12 a.m. until tomorrow, 10-18-07, at 3 a.m. over WBLV/WBLU FM and on line via www.bluelake.org/radio.html. (Those times in Chicago are 11 p.m. tonight to 2 a.m. tomorrow). The program’s original broadcast attracted more web-stream listeners than any other program broadcast all day Sunday. Thanks to Organissimo for that fact.

No, that was it. There a just a couple of other pieces of the interview which are a minute or two long, each. Hour long interview cut into 9 segments, most of which made it over the 3 hours.
