Updoc #314, Friday 1/16 & Tuesday 1/20

I’ve been trying to remember my first turning toward music in infancy, perhaps as pure delight in the chiming of sound, and then later for different degrees of enchantment or excitement, for news about life I couldn’t find anywhere else, for intimations of the real scope of existence and news of something Greater. Later still, when hearing something new, there’s also a sense of a reality check: does this music stand up to experience, does its coin ring true on the counter of all you’ve lived? Duke Ellington’s music stands up, rings true, holds up, sets sail, takes wing, gives heart, wakes body, stirs soul, raises spirit, rears up and shouts out in the face of any question you might ask it, and although last week’s show was largely Dukish I couldn’t resist playing some more of him this time—Friday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday, Ellington Uptown time—starting with Toot Suite from last week’s record Ellington Jazz Party. It’s not one of his greatest compositions—its French-punning title implies that he knocked it off in a rush—but the entire wealth and richness of his art stands tall in it anyway: a matter for a politique des auteurs, perhaps. The Ellington shout is succeeded by the wintry chill of Allan Pettersson’s 7th Symphony, a deep-delved work through light and dark, powerfully performed; then comes John Coltrane’s rocketed affirmation in several takes of Sun Ship, after which the times required something French, and got the delicacy of Debussy and the Charlie-like rudeness of Bobby Lapointe in counterpointe. Updoc has aired Duke’s Tone Parallel to Harlem before, but this seemed like another time for its clarion call across the lifescape, and that wraps it up except for another farewell throb from Charlie not Hebdo but Haden, whose memorial concert in New York this week made clear how much of us has gone with him, and how much of him has stayed with us.ParisRallyLarge

Stick It In Your Head

This week Howling’s sending out a search party, admitting to being an old hippy and not being able to tell the difference between a Wassoulu Tribesman and a Mississippi Hill man! So nothing’s changed on the porch – it’s still the place to find an hour of nonsense mixed up with the finest blues ‘n roots on the net.
