    I follow freejazzblog.org and I enjoy their commentary and reviews save when they conflate the music as something resistant or political (and the stuff with spoken word or specifically political stuff is of no interest to me - no spirit in any of that as Jerry would have known) but recently some of their reviewers have made comments remarking that not as much have changed within this sphere of music as some might think.

    I thoroughly disagree and tend to think those with that viewpoint have become too close to that music to recognize the changes and development. Same view would happen if one was not very familiar with this subset of music. Balance is critical.

    but I will say that a newer listener might compare or contrast the music of Dave Rempis or Mats Gustafsson to the later 60’s free jazz or even the 90’s - 00’s downtown revival. Radically different sounds and approach. Listen to Nate Wooley as well. He’s now on the scene 15 years or so and his improvising and musical ideas are still radical. Plus he’s the best trumpeter on the planet.

    now listening to Kuzu - Purple Dark Opal

    Rempis with Tashi Dorji on guitar and Tyler Damon on drums

    55:45 piece called “To The Quick”

    recorded live on 10/14/2018 @ Sugar Maple in Milwaukee

    I dare you all to listen to this mind ****

    taking a break at the 34:40 mark as Rempis takes a break from the baritone saxophone after maybe a 15 to 18 improvisation with his band mates on the beast. I think he switches to tenor for the long closing segment. Last 10 - 12 minutes were very very intense. The young guitar-drums tandem drives this music to very extreme yet open places. Wow as is almost always the case with Rempis’ releases on his Aerophonic Records label.

    hope he is surviving OK without being able to play live which he normally does traveling world wide to play in rooms with various small groups to play in front of 20 to probably 50 or maybe a hundred people on a good night.

    Interesting as I have never come across any political content there. I don't read every article/review though.

    There is a good one if you can find it, a full Fillmore West show a year later, '70, called Go West.
    More Clarence, more Clarence.

    The closest I got was the Sweetheart Tour at the end of 2018, the last show of the tour: McGuinn,
    Hillman,
    and lo', Clarence White's B bender played by none other than Marty Stuart. The Fabulous
    Superlatives
    were pretty fabulous too.

    I like that album a lot; there are some 90's records Danko cut with Eric Anderson and Jonas Fjeld
    that are very pleasing, sweet sounding americana, with Rick still in decent voice.

    Thanks for a great story @davmar77, about your friends and the Rick Danko show during power outage.



    Was playing/now playing... after another small social gathering with humans from earth
    last night, got home late, and this pair was laying around offering up the perfect moment
    and late night study in the nouveau dilettantism of covidity... anyway it was perfect, until
    a (caged animal) friend called to rant the night away 'bout almost everything. lol

    Billion Dollar Babies. Alice Cooper, 1973.

    This used to be my favorite Alice Cooper album. Now it's just an album I absolutely love :D.

    The Eagles, Hell Freezes Over DVD. Ha, ha, get it? But they could have called it Irving Azoff's Big Ass Money Truck Came to My House, and Maybe We Can Get Joe into Rehab.

    I saw Joe Walsh open for the Doobies 'round 'bout 1991, and he looked like hell. He was wearing a red jumpsuit and looked like hell, just scary. Did I say he looked like hell? I couldn't believe how cleaned up he was for the '94 Eagles reunion. Way to go, Joe.

    Of course the reunion was a house of lies. They're all talking about how great it is to have everyone back in the fold, blah, blah, blah. And I'm sure that was partly true, but I read years later that the only reason Don Felder was asked back was insurance against Joe if he couldn't get it together.

    Despise celery, it's like vegetable with rebar. Even Elvis chose nannas (I'm not sure what "even" implies - I'll mull it while mowing, tah).

    Edit: it strikes me this reply might be dated.

    One of the first music dvds I bought, early 2000s.
    The sound is fantastic and the performances are pretty great too

    My reaction was "OH WOW, they're back together," but I never saw them even one time, didn't really want to, and as I recall they were the first band to charge north of 100 dollars for a ticket. Good DVD though.

    Hotel California is excellent(Don Felder!) and Henley pretty much nails the vocals on The Last Resort.

    I didn't know about the band politics until much later. I just enjoyed the music. Still do, don't listen very often though.

    I'm waiting for @bzfgt to give me the "zzzzzzzzzzz" for my Hell Freezes Over post.

    They brought band politics to the fore in one of their officially sanctioned rockumentaries released in conjunction, I believe, with their Wal-Mart exclusive album, The Long Road Out Of Eden. I have only the greatest hits and Hotel California. And I think they let Don Felder give his side of the story in the documentary, which is a little weird. At least rock bands still believe in equal time.

    I can probably offend at least 25 percent of the people here with Eagles posts.

    I have a friend back East who told me years ago that he was invited to a wedding, and Don from the Eagles was going to be there. I said, "Henley?" And he said, "No, the other Don." It was funny because this guy probably couldn't name an Eagle if you asked him to.

    The only thing I'll say for the Eagles is they're about the only band (maybe except for the Pistols) that made absolutely no bones about the fact that their "reunion tour" was for the money, and only for the money. Wasn't it Frey that said "if they pay, we'll play"?
