09/09 | Kip Hanrahan’s “Surplus Value / History of the Microphone, pgm. 020 | Posted by Bob Rogers
OK, the playlist for tonight’s Surplus Value / The History of the Mic show at 7PM EST is the show I had thought would “air” last week, the one with some previously unreleased Jack Bruce / Don Pullen work. There were tech problems in the air last week, I guess….
OK, tech problems aside (as we all know, if we hate the tech stuff, it’ll hate us back…. ok……) this SHOULD be the playlist for the Surplus Value show 020 with my emotional engagement with the Jack Bruce / Don Pullen lottery friends of all lifetimes stuff…..
I’ll post the “playlist” below, with the vocal notes I’ve taken for myself missing -: it seems a lot of you can’t understand my direct (DIRECT via Dha BRONX!) English, but, if interested, you could always contact me to ask what I meant, or what I said if it was really indecipherable / inaudible. There’s a chance I would answer.
The posted interview with Jack, Don and myself should cement my position among the most articulately difficult….

09/04 | Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, Fri., 9/5 & Tues., 9/9 | Posted by Bob Rogers
The photo has nothing to do with the music; I just felt like looking at it. This week’s Updoc—Friday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday, Lower East Side time—features a lot of music one correspondent has written to say she finds it hard to understand without context, but I like Wadada Leo Smith’s ambitious new Great Lakes Suite, without understanding what it has to do with the Lakes individually or all together. Smith’s heraldic trumpet in a band featuring Henry Threadgill, John Lindberg, and a drummer named DeJohnette is enough setup for me. A friend recently sent me back to John Coltrane’s Concert in Japan and he was right: Yamaha’s gift of two alto saxophones put a less lethal weapon in Pharoah Sanders’ hands and give Trane a new wing to soar on: Peace on Earth is Coltrane at his most rapturously and romantically hymnful. Lately I’ve been changing the pace with Mozart piano concertos, especially since coming upon the series by Mitsuko Uchida, Jeffrey Tate and the English Chamber Orchestra, who this week deliver bliss upon bliss on one of the two concertos Mozart composed in the minor mode. Some avant-garde free-jazz types find Mozart the difficult one to get—all that beauty and elegance and mercy and poignancy and wit—but they can get him here. Marilyn Crispell in duet with Louis Moholo and the Art Ensemble in both whispering and screaming mode round out the show and this text is long enough. Hello, I must be going.
09/04 | Downhome With Howling Dick | Posted by Bob Rogers
This week Howling’s sitting up all night in front of the TV, returning quickly to a couple of new arrivals and enjoying an ivory tinkler! What does all this mean? Who knows? Who cares? It’s all a great excuse to listen on Taint to an hour of some of the finest blues ‘n roots you’ll find on the net. Sundays 10am (EDT), Tuesdays 6pm, Thursdays midnight, Saturdays 11pm. See program schedule for archived editions.

08/28 | Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, Friday, 8/29 & Tuesday, 9/2 | Posted by Bob Rogers
I end up doing more memorial shows than is comfortable, but it’s happening in the jazz world: a magnificent generation in its seventies and eighties is filing out of the room—we keep tremulously awaiting Who’s Next—so it’s a pleasure to report on someone who didn’t die. Despite a Farewell To note on Facebook, the cellist Abdul Wadud is still bowing and plucking among us. I programmed Dogon A.D., the Julius Hemphill classic to which Wadud contributed so much, anyway, and followed it up with another classic of that jazz generation, the Art Ensemble of Chicago’s People in Sorrow, which I’d almost programmed on Malachi Favors’ birthday, and mine, the week before. Both pieces were recorded during the period in which Wynton Marsalis and Ken Burns declared jazz to have been dead. These are some fine zombies. From there this week’s Updoc—Friday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday, Doggone Brooklyn time—moves on to Bartok’s sonata for solo violin, its daddy the Bach chaconne, and Beethoven’s always disturbing Grosse Fuge, but herewith Updoc breaks new ground: my deejay announcements were made while lying on the floor of an overbooked Amtrak train headed for NY from RI, and then later from a seat, with side-commentary provided by two guys from Luxembourg and a lady from New Rochelle—and this in the quiet car! For the past few months, Kip Hanrahan has been doing the most adventurous show on taintradio or for that matter anywhere, but has he done this? There were people stepping on me, when the show must go on. Yo, Kip: this is a thrown gauntlet, man. I have raised the ante. Your move.
08/21 | Rafi Zabor’s Updoc | Posted by Bob Rogers
Not much thesis left—Monk’s harmony plus arpeggiating tenorist equals sheets of sound—in this week’s Thelonious Monk-John Coltrane followup show—Friday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday, Five Spot time—but I did want to get to some of the live tracks from Carnegie Hall and the Five Spot that didn’t air last week. The atmosphere gets very complex and crowded with those guys playing together, and last week I skipped to later Trane and a Mozart concerto for a breath of different air. This week I wanted to hear women sing: Nellie McKay, Nina Simone, Blossom Dearie, Shiela Jordan, Laurie Anderson, Cecile McLorin Salvant, Stacey Kent, Abbey Lincoln and of course Lady Day, among others still. Miles Davis drops in too, and so might you. You’re most welcome.
