Antics with the A Band/Johnny Scarr/Filthy Turd - plus mp3s from Bird, Diz and Monk/James Blood Ulmer/Lord Buckley






































































The A Band gig (with Johnny Scarr - and Filthy Turd – I kid you not)last night at the Art Organisation in Nottingham was a blast... review to follow when the notes have been deciphered etc -here's a couple of photos as a taster...

And a couple of mp3s that bear no direct relation, but so what... 'Revelation March' from James 'Blood' Ulmer's (love that Blood in inverted commas) album 'Tales of Captain Black.' A bit late for the Pirate Day, perhaps. A fast harmolodic scrabble with Blood's – or should that be 'Blood's' – old guvnor in the alto chair -Ornette Coleman. Whose shadow hangs heavy over this session... Ulmer plays some great flailing guitar...

The Fountainhead – or one of them – Bird and Diz with Thelonious Monk in 1950. This is an alternat take of 'Mohawk,' a loping 12 bar. Bird takes a couple of choruses, playing within himself, Diz tightly muted, fires off some pyrotechnical runs. Monk performs his off-kilter scamper for a quick chorus followed by bass. An odd session, you feel something didn't quite gell – could be the choice of drummer, Buddy Rich – a bit of a four-square thumper in general (although somewhat muted on this track), despite his technique – all that 'Traps the Boy Wonder' stuff. Max or Klook would have fit in better, maybe...

Saturday Morning – just edged into the afternoon. I must go boldly soon into God's Little Acre – here's something to bring a smile – of the hip variety, of course, Mildred... A bit of Shakespeare, 'Mark Anthony's Funeral Oration' as interpreted by the immortal Lord Buckley: 'The bad jazz that a cat blows wails long after he's cut out. The groovy is often stashed with their frames.'
Dig...

In the Videodrome...

His Lordship circa 1949...

...with Groucho...

... and a smallextract of the Lord live telling the story of the Carpenter Kiddy
