Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, Friday Oct 11 & Tuesday Oct 15

The playlist for this week’s Updoc—8PM Friday and noon next Tuesday, Brooklyn Quiztime—does not particularly compute. Okay, two long cuts from the new Carla Bley record of Trios with Steve Swallow and Andy Sheppard, and two more from the old Bill Evans all-star quintet record Interplay: no problem, they’re good. So is Steve Kuhn, and he gets two tunes in, while Pee Wee Russell gets four. Two orchestral pieces by Aaron Jay Kernis, one soft and one loud, plus a violin concerto by Magnus Lindberg. All good music but I don’t get the point. Consult your decoder rings and send your possible solutions to me at my Zonguldak address. You might have to listen to the show first.Screen Shot 2013-10-10 at 2.27.24 PM
