Death Valley Radio Program 878

Death Valley Radio is a format-free program for the musically curious.

In this age of bland radio programming (both commercial and non-) and automated music services, DVR is still built by hand, non-algorithmically — one set at a time.

Death Valley Radio can be heard here at taintradio on Saturdays at 10:00 PM ET and Wednesdays at 10:00 AM ET.

DVR program 878 features brand-new tracks from Carrie Rodriguez with Bill Frisell, Lucinda Williams with Greg Leisz and Bill Frisell, and Charles Lloyd with, um, Bill Frisell and Greg Leisz; world rhythms (Juana Molina and Gaby Kerpel of Argentina, the Colombia-based quintet Sidestepper); and music from Ennio Morricone’s score to U Turn, Oliver Stone’s film adaptation of John Ridley’s novel Stray Dogs.

Also: new cuts from Peter Case with Ben Harper, Luther Dickinson with Jason Isbell, Callenberg, Pacific Harp Project, Three Cane Whale and trumpeter Avishai Cohen’s debut on the ECM label.

Each week’s playlist will be archived until the end of time at deathvalleyradio.org.

Sages

You that sang to me once sing to me now/let me hear your long lifted note—said W.S Merwin in his poem The Nomad Flute, gracefully set to music, along with an untranslated Chinese poem by Li Shangyin, by the American composer Evan Ziporyn, and I like it so much that I’m playing it on the show again—Friday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday, What Street Compares With Mott Street time—after an intermission of about six years. They don’t put you in jail for that, but in 2013 the Turkish composer Fazıl Say was given a jail sentence, suspended, for ‘insulting Islam’—it’s been hard not to get in trouble with the Turkish government these days—though it probably had nothing to do with him giving the Turkish chestnut Üsküdar a rather Jewish treatment in his violin concerto 1001 Nights in the Harem a few years before. The fiddler is the astonishing Patricia Kopatchinskaya and the piece intends to be popular and accessible and gets there without gaucherie, and they don’t put you in jail for that. She’s also on hand, playing barefoot and probably in unusual clothes, on Peter Eötvös’s severely uncommercial violin concerto named Seven in memoriam of the seven astronauts who died in the space shuttle Columbia breakup, and if he makes something of the fact of an Israeli astronaut on board and some of the debris falling on Palestine (pronounced Palisteen) Texas I don’t hear it in the music. If violin concerti ain’t what yer in the mood fer, we start off with some devastating balladry from Chet Baker and Paul Bley, then a couple of big band cuts, and the show’s not over until Omar Bashir charms the oud with a Kurdish maqam that sounds more than slightly flamenco, and Marcus Roberts airs his new presidential music with three-note motifs on Feel the Bern, and they don’t put you in jail for that. Yet.

Downhome With Howling Dick (Ep 134 A Pair Of Underpants)

This time out, Howling’s decided to talk less whilst unashamedly promoting videos, breaking with tradition and examining novel headwear. Fear not though loyal blues hounds, despite all this rubbish you can rest assured it’s an hour of fine blues and roots on Taint.

Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, Fri Feb 5 & Tues Feb 9

364TT

How and when, according to what clock or ordination, is the gift given? The other day I was in a group clinic trying to help a friend through a surgical ordeal, and all across the space surgeons were at work on bodies immobilized in a warren of cubicles. Usually the background music there is easy classic rock but that day a jazz station was the luck of the draw, incompletely audible through the working clatter, but I could hear Clifford Brown being brilliant over the top of it—too bad my friend wasn’t into jazz: it might have helped her—but even so the place and time felt fragmented and dismembered. Then it was John Coltrane on his devotional ballad Dear Lord, but even a few notes of that sound were enough not so much to cathedral the rattling clinic but restore an integrated human harmony to it and afford a place for the human soul even as human bodies were being piecemealed. Well, of course, John Coltrane: who else? But not a whole show’s worth—Friday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday, West 52nd St. time—just a few relative rarities, and a boy in a boat and a barque on the ocean, and Sidney DeParis with the Paradise Orchestra and a brilliant new recording of Lutoslawski’s piano concerto performed by its original dedicatee. And some more John Coltrane, who came and went and hasn’t left us yet, and Kamasi Washington, who has picked up the torch and is waving it afresh, and the eleven-year old piano prodigy Joey Alexander showing a fresh face of the unexpectable on Coltrane’s Giant Steps, never letting you hear how small his hands are and somehow indicating emotions and experience he can’t have had time for yet. Sometimes it’s enough to listen in and witness the wonderment, while waiting for the next visit and a chance to join in, yourself.
