    Sorry to completely fall off the face of the conversation, I passed out mid cyberball last night.

  3. butterflyeffect Says:

    My last night, of course.

    @Palmer, love him or hate him is about right. I guess you would call it roots rock? I haven’t seen him in years. I like his energy onstage but the music has never grabbed me.

    @voopa I grabbed a couple of those Remixed tracks including the redone “Black is the Color…” – so far I like it all way way better than most of those remix projects.

    @AW on ’03:

    I did notice at times they were all just jamming away with such energy and passion but it seemed to lack overall coherence…

    the way the flubs occur and our handled just feels different
    there is just a slightly negative overhanging energy you hear in the music

    a weird force I can’t put a finger on that detracts from the strength of the sometimes brilliant jams

    Really fantastic insight here

    Totally agree, that’s just how I feel about it…

    I put together a CD of classic ’03 open jams, like of the Phish Destroys America idea, thinking it would be amazing…but actually it just kind of left me sketched out. Mindblowing for awhile, but run all together, there was a dark sameness to it…

    “slightly negative overhanging energy” – brilliant

  6. Mr. Completely Says:

    lol markup fail again

  7. butterflyeffect Says:

    Shit, the one time I actually should have used a semicolon, and didn’t.

    Semicolons are the TTE of grammar.

  8. Mr. Completely Says:

    “ungrounded” is what I always think of…it sends you, but never really comes back…or something

  9. Mr. Completely Says:

    I love semicolons; they are more properly the Reba of punctuation: tricky to execute, but often the best choice.

  10. butterflyeffect Says:

    Oh, I too love semicolons; like TTE, they are difficult to place and oft-maligned, but quite nice if realized correctly. Also like TTE, semicolons tend to be overused and misunderstood.

    So I guess schools are closed tomorrow.


    Listening to a “best of Phish Summer 2009 improv” podcast right now, it’s pretty good.

    I want to say Boogie On is playing right now, but I don’t know…it is pretty fucking sweet though.

    You’re a big Coltrane guy right? I have a question to ask: I am putting together certain albums I’ve been wanting for Christmas, and was wanting to put Coltrane in there. As of right now, the two albums I have down are Interstellar Space and Live at the Village Vanguard. My question is, is Ascension worth picking up? I want to get into his more avant-garde stuff, but have heard mixed reviews on that one. I am choosing between either Ascension or Meditations, and wanted to know which one you preferred.

    The p-funk set from 03 was a “had to be there” moment.
    Same with the “LA woman” references.

    The energy in that room just dosen’t translate well to tape. It was one of my favorite moments.

  13. Mr. Completely Says:

    @BK, nice

    If you’re serious about avant-garde Trane they’re both good choices. Both are moderately hardcore dissonant avant-jazz. Ascension is totally outside traditional structure, Meditations mostly so…both come with a fairly big dose of Pharoah Sanders and his very aggressively dissonant tone, which is the biggest single stumbling block for a lot of people when trying to absorb this stuff. If you dig Pharaoh you’ll probably like both albums a lot.

    I listen to neither album often, but still really like both of them when the mood strikes me. If I have to pick one I say Ascension – if you’re going out, go all the way out.

    I am required by my own biases to say now: but, A Love Supreme is by far his greatest album.

    How’d you like the Vanguard stuff?

  14. Mr. Completely Says:

    about once a year I throw on one of those really out there Trane disks. About half the time it sounds like insane insect-demon noise and I turn it off. The other half it sounds like angels being born, and I don’t.

  15. BrandonKayda Says:

    Thanks for the advice. I appreciate it.

    Jazz in general is something I am just getting into. I bought Kind of Blue, and decided I would move onto some Coltrane. I really dug the frantic, manic sounds of Interstellar Space, and am trying to dig deeper into his catalog now. I will check out the Village Vanguard and Ascension soon,

  16. c0wfunk Says:

    love the semi colon stuff! did some baking tonight ready to go on the road in the am fl bound!

  17. Mr. Completely Says:

    very cool that you’re interested in the wild stuff right off the bat

    you should also check out any one of several live Miles Davis albums from the early 70s: Live/Evil or Pangaea or Aghartha. Not similar, but equally ‘out’ in a different direction.

    a third kind of avant garde jazz is more compositional. Mingus’ Black Saint and the Sinner Lady is a great example. Highly recommended.

    these days when it comes to jazz I am listening to a lot of Rashaan Roland Kirk: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uRnvMwD6jM – he stops ranting (which is interesting too) and starts playing at about 1:30

    To all of you fuckers traveling to the Magic City for NYE: eat a dick.

  19. flarrdogg Says:

    ^A Love Supreme- not only Trane’s masterpiece, but one my all time favorite albums- in any genre. Transcends “jazz” in a Kind Of Blue way. That shit stays in the rotation for me- ALWAYS. ‘Ascension or Meditations’?- the short answer: both.

    Mr C- you have some excellent taste, my friend. Looking forward to crossing paths someday.
