Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, Fri. 26 & Tues. 4/30

I’ve played a lot of Lester Young on the show—that would be Updoc on taintradio.org, Friday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday, NY Uptown time—but have been inexplicably remiss re Nat King Cole, who was, moreover, a friend of my father’s; so it’s make-up time this week, with selections from their 1946 Verve recording in a trio with Buddy Rich and a few cuts from Cole with his trio and on his own. The man had such impeccable style and class. Also onboard: a new CD from Robert Hurst featuring Branford and Tain and Glasper and Maupin and more, and a recent one from pianist Donald Brown featuring Ravi Coltrane. Also Jennifer Higdon’s rip-roaring tour de force of a Concerto for Orchestra, a lithe little Piano Trio from Judith Weir and, most exquisite of all, a setting for voice and orchestra by Henri Dutilleux of a letter from Vincent Van Gogh to his brother Theo.

Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, 4/19 & 4/23

Back to a mostly jazz show on this week’s Updoc—Friday at 8PM, noon next Tuesday—featuring some new and newish releases from Ben Wolfe, Ulysses Owens Jr. and Chris Potter among others, but I was particularly pleased to unearth a track featuring Lucky Thompson on a little-known Art Blakey record from about 1970. Most people know Thompson, I’d guess, from his swing-to-bop tenor work on a few sessions with Charlie Parker, but in later years he favored the soprano saxophone, of which he was a major master. He lived in Europe for many years, came back to the States and Los Angeles and wound up homeless and living on the street due to the fortunes of war and the gradual encroachment of senile dementia. Last year I learned from Branford Marsalis that he was found, rescued, and given a home by some real L.A. angels, though toward the end he had no memory of having played music. “Did I do that?” he’d say when played one of his records. I’ve played the hell out of his album Lucky Strikes on the show, and I’m only playing one Blakey track this week—so good it could make even Lennie Tristano smile—but I thought I’d relate the story here. There’s Tristano too, two versions of the Miserere, one ancient and the other contemporary, and the show rounds off with two orchestral pieces by Takemitsu with links to Finnegans Wake.  A way a lone a last a loved a long the
