Unpopular Music - July 1, 2017

Playing tracks by

Charlie Haden and Paul Motian, feat. Geri Allen, Bill Evans, Eric Dolphy Quintet, Erik Friedlander, Vienna Art Orchestra and more.

No festive holiday programming for 4th of July (or Canada Day for that matter), just the usual jazz and other for the last full day of the first half of the year.

We do pay a brief tribute to the late Geri Allen, who unfortunately is one of those musicians who always impressed and intrigued me, but whose work I've never gotten around to exploring in depth.

There is some accidental continuity throughout. In most of the first set selections, fours and eights are traded with the drummer in various ways. The selections for the second hour's set feature many quotations.

Good one, Fred.

Not bad Mr Fred, not bad at all. Not my genre if I'm honest but your selection dragged me in till the end. Quite a few gems here. Liked the minimalist influences in some of the tracks.

Well, thank you! Having people listen without regard for genre is part of my goal.
