Budget non-existent. I won't be able to even have bus fare to hang w/ the Cape-Men,Electric Kisses,etc. this weekend.

I wish this show was on the 19th after i get paid...

on a funny note- riggler disappoints. cmon ned- you must have at least a dozen stories regarding ornette.
Posted: Feb 15, 2008 12:34 pm
where's he playing?

I've seen him twice and both shows were well worth it...

I love Sound Grammar. Been pushing it on everybody I know. No real Ornette stories aside from the time I stood next to him at the bar when Don Cherry and Eddie Blackwell played at some club where the Continental Divide is now. At the end of the night I went up to Eddie and thanked him and told him how great it was. He put his arm around me and we hung out for a few minutes. He was a really nice dude.

i'm curious how this is... he's playing nyc in march. tickets are mad expensive but it's not like there's plenty of opportunities to see him play.

I know...but it's like 75 fucking bucks or more...just can't swing it...maybe I'll go see Blue Cheer tonight instead

Ed Blackwell may be my favorite drummer in jazz, so unique and definitively New Orleans. Cool story. Wish I'd had a chance to see him.

You should check out his band with Cherry and Hayden called Old and New Dreams if you haven't heard it.

Damn. Guess I'm on Joe's team with this one. Bootleg it yamhill.

Yes Bootleg!

"Ed Blackwell may be my favorite drummer in jazz,..."

And he still has time to regulate on style w/ his Worst Dressed Lists to boot!

"You should check out his band with Cherry and Hayden..."

No Yes. Just Ornette!

I already own a lonely heart,don't need to be reminded of it.

What's the story with the NYC gig? I couldn't find any info online.

Finally got the Friends & Neighbors LP on Flying Dutchman last night and it kills.

3/28 at town hall.

Just checked prices for the Town Hall show. Cheapest tickets are $76.50. That's messed up.

No bootleg but it was worth the buck. Ornette retains alot more power and tone then i expected. Some pretty incredible goose bump moments. Two electric basses and an acoustic- i think it might have been charlie haden. His daughter is here but no intros and i havent been able to find other info. The two electrics played real well together- one jaco like and the other more nuanced and textured while haden(?) alternated from bad ass runs to some incredible bowing. ornette played a decent amount of violin, as well, leading to some cool big moments. but more than anything i was impressed as hell that ornette played solid w/ no breaks or coasting. the man can still bring it and its always awesome to experience the power of jazz. denardo was hitting the fuck out of the drums and the whole band really did roar. my funny as hell and stoned brother talked for about an hour about van halen and the laughing hyenas afterwards which madde a bunch of sense at the time...

Sounds great. Maybe the bassist was Greg Cohen?

I was lucky to catch the trio of Ornette, Charlie Haden, and Billy Higgins several years ago and that shit was magic.
