Playlist

Live

December 1, 2012
Chapel Performance Space, Good Shepherd Center, Seattle
Ask The Ages and Triptet

Ask The Ages ( Steven Bell, Greg Campbell, Brian Seamus Heaney, John Seman):

jellyfish liquidly undulous
flagpole rope dangling clangling
packpredatorprowl accumulant

extra-terrestro-temporal
migration of minerals through thunderous forest 
expanse of engine

Triptet (Tom Baker, Greg Campbell, Michael Monhart):

communique from
mirrored strand
twisted taut
sinuous encrusted waves
on up upon
mountain heaved seaward
heavy fog lading hills flat
molecularized gastronomy


Recorded

December 3, 2012
Sonata in F Major, Op. 24 - Beethoven - Henryk Szeryng, Ingrid Haebler

December 4, 2012
Vater unser - Christian Heinrich Rinck [from Rassegna Internazionale di Capelle Musicali Loreto 15-19 Aprile 1998]
Till Eulenspiegel's Lustige Streiche - Strauss - Staatskapelle Dresden, Rudolf Kempe

What Strauss does when Strauss is really doing what Strauss does is to cobble together parts that do not fit together exactly quite so that they just manage to stay put long enough to get to the next set of ill-fitting parts narrowly avoiding collapse. Rarely does he manage to keep this going for a whole piece, but there are sections of Till that delight.

Sow Good Seeds - Lil McClintock [from Dust to Digital's Goodbye, Babylon]

I really want to see this guy play guitar. It sounds like he has extra bass strings - or even an extra soundbox - for the low ringing strums, while the upper intricacies flit by like tiny bats.

This Song of Love - the Middle Georgia Singing Convention No. 1 [from Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music]

These guys blend like a woodwind quintet - with tuba added.

Memphis Flu - Elder Curry and Congregation [from Dust to Digital's Goodbye, Babylon]
Sweethearts on Parade - Louis Armstrong and his Sebastian New Cotton Club [from The Smithsonian Collection of Classic Jazz]
Cloudy Skies - Chocolate Dandies [from Allen Lowe's That Devilin' Tune]

December 6, 2012
Papa's Got A Brand New Bag - James Brown [collected from Dave Marsh's The Heart of Rock & Soul]

JB's vocal is not the biggest sound in the mix, but the horn hits are so sparely used that any more would be engineering overkill.

In Session at The Tintinabulary
