    Darius Jones Trio: Man'ish Boy

    Darius on alto saxophone
    Cooper-Moore on piano + diddly bow
    Rakaman Bob Moses on drums

    Recorded in the studio in 2009

    On AUM Fidelity

    Wonderous early recording from the great altoist joined by two underground legendary musicians.

    Funny they have a diddly bow on something called Man'ish Boy...one wants to say it should be called I'm a Man.

    Tonight I was listening to Collectable King Crimson. It was on my ipod. A couple minutes into "Dr. Diamond," it cuts to part of "Jack Straw" for 15 seconds or so (long enough for Bobby to sing "Now the die is shaken, now the die must fall/There ain't a winner in the game, he don't go home with all," anyway). My hope was that the file was somehow corrupt, and it wasn't my ipod malfunctioning and mixing things, but when I listened to it in itunes there is no Jack Straw. So, it is my ipod that has done this thing.

    The rest of the album sounds fine. Still, it's jarring, and not a happy harbinger.

    I got tired of only having one album with Fred Anderson in AAC format so I ordered this one last week and it just arrived today; with Fred, Hamid, Jeff Parker, Harrison Bankhead & Josh Abrams I'm really excited to give it a play and I'm sure it will not disappoint.

    Don't you worry, sometimes iPods do those things.

    Someone complained about the loudness of this today, which is good because now I'm listening to it.

    Wilco, Alpha Mike Foxtrot.

    Listening to the very cool "I Am Not Willing" (with Syd Straw).

    I saw the Golden Palominos in college in the 80s with Syd Straw and Matthew Sweet. Straw introduced Sweet as the "cute Palamino." They closed with "The Ocean" by Zeppelin. Yes!

    Also in college, I saw Phish when they were, um, a college band. The only song I remember in the set they played was "Good Times, Bad Times" by Zeppelin. Yes!

    Led Zeppelin. Yes!

    OK, I'm done.

    A few years ago, I was listening to this album and had a revelation (hardly an original one, as it turns out) that he was creating his own music genre. I was astounded. Just blown away.

    Clearly you’re not from the Detroit area. Lots of Seger played in that neck of the woods.

    I know the songs. I don't know a lot about him. I have five Seger albums, including two live and a greatest hits. He was on the radio all the time when I was growing up.

    Disc 1. This was my birthday present from my trip to Amoeba Hollywood last month. Still got a few Miles Box sets that are waiting to be opened after I make it through this one.

    This was so nice I had to play it twice. I would do it thrice but I really need to get some shuteye despite my better judgement telling me to keep listening.

    In my middle age I have gravitated toward Red, but overall in terms of total KC listening the album I've gone to most often has been Starless and Bible Black by a pretty decent amount. Still my favorite if pressed

    Dark Magus might be the only pre-post-retirement live Miles album I don't have yet (meaning by release date that is, there are probably quite a few that have been more recently released that I don't have, e.g. most of the Bootleg Series), somehow it managed to slip through the cracks. After looking at the Bootleg series a little more in detail following your posts the other day, I realize that I probably need the live ones more than I had initially thought (I mean, everyone need could always use a little more 2nd and Lost Quintet in their lives, right?).

    Outrageous!!! :eek:

    It is rather great, you see. Some of his funkiest stuff and the guitar is really a major part of the music here.

    CSNY 1974. I like the blu-ray set. But man, Stills vocals is the worst

    It's not like I haven't heard a gazillon 'Mats live tracks and bootlegs the last quarter of a century. And not one of them coulda made me anticipate the rush of hearing this. I mean, I almost didn't bother ordering this one until after the bills left in the wake of Santa and that other bearded fella had been paid off...

    SHAME ON ME! Because this is one wild ride. ONE! WILD!! RIDE!!! And I'll have to tell you this right off the bat: the supposedly worst live act in the history of music (on a bad night) was (ir)responsible for such a huge amount of energy, such outright commitment this night in glamorous Hoboken to the anarchic, free-flowing spirit of what rock'n'roll is supposed to be, that you can all stop crying over dead men now and just join the Jørnis. Bloodcurling screams, out of tune guitars and bum notes a gøgø: it just does not matter when there is fun to be had in the company of little gods.

    Whether it is cheerfully slaughtering mothballed sacred cash cows like the Beetlz or KIZZ or injecting their own song with a dose of electricity that is nowhere to be found on any of their fantastic studio albums, this here platter is a monster.

    A GODDAMN MONSTER, I TELLS YA!

    11/10.
