There's a week long tribute on WKCR (columbia university radio)
https://www.cc-seas.columbia.edu/wkcr/

That was beautifully said John and though I had a more love hate relationship with his music I ultimately have to agree with your assessment.
My loathings are simple: stupidity, oppression, crime, cruelty, soft music.

1987 Vancouver Jazz Festival, Commodore Ballroom, Sunday night end-of-festival headline performance, the only chance I got to see Ornette Coleman live.

The band consisted of two drummers, two bassists (one electric, one back-and-forth electric and acoustic), Ornette on his white plastic sax, and a tabla player from India.

There's a Buddhist meditation practice called shamatha, or concentration. When I get into conversations about the idea of concentration, I sometimes think about those two bass players. They had to focus on Ornette's chordal changes, which could come at any moment and go in any direction. Those guys were sweatin' buckets with the effort. If they missed any, I sure didn't notice.

There's a quote on the quote generator from Muddy Waters, something like "Don't hear the changes, *feel* the changes." A challenge when playing with Mr. Coleman.

What a night, a transformative experience listening to someone completely in control of his unique art.

Years ago I saw a short clip of Dock Boggs on youtube, and when I went looking for it again I came across this longer video with some footage I'd never seen. Wish the narrator wasn't talking over his playing though:

I had the pleasure of visiting the Harare International Festival of the Arts earlier this year, and I was amazed at the fingerpicking prowess of Derek Gripper, from South Africa.

His specialty is performing songs normally played on a 21-string kora on a six-string guitar. As is the case in many of his renditions, he has three things going on most most of the time, bass line, rhythm line, and variations on melody.

Here's an example, a "standard" in West African kora playing called "Jiarabi."

Hi all,
Here is Eddie South on violin backed by Django Reinhardt on guitar and Wilson Myers on bass.  It's amazing to me that someone could play like this--pull-offs to pizzicato notes, my goodness!  I would love to have seen Eddie South play.



All best,
Johnm

Hi all,
I've always loved this song, and Junior Walker's tone and the way he makes notes on the tenor sax--WOW, and what a great hook!



All best,
Johnm

That takes me right back to Hy Lit, and WIBG radio 99, Johnm. I think growin' up in the Philly area we had an extra dose of this music. Not saying it wasn't popular elsewhere, but in Philly, it just seemed to dominate the AM radio in the decade before the British Invasion, and held it's own for sometime afterward.

Thanks for the memory jolt.

Yup, John C., I really love that stuff, and also cuts like this one from the Soul Survivors, which I don't think got much play on the West Coast.



All best,
Johnm

This one got everyone dancing at the Top Rank Ballrooms in the UK when I was a moddy boy in the sixties. In Reading we routinely had to dodge the skinheads and run for the scooters afterwards because the skins loved da reggae almost as much as they hated mods. Mostly peace on the dancefloor, total chaos outside. Souping-up Vespas and Lambrettas was a survival reflex.
