Oops, I must correct myself. Only 300 of those box sets were made. If your not familiar with Cooper-Moore he can be heard playing piano in William Parker's In Order To Survive Quartet and Parker's Little Huey Creative Music Orchestra.

I pulled the box out here are the instruments he plays; Diddley-Bo, Horizantal Hoe-Handle Harp, Ashimba, Bamboo Fife, Twanger, Piano, Voice/story, Mouth-Bow, Three-Stringed Fretless Banjo & Percussion.

Has anyone heard William Parker & The Little Huey Creative Music Orchestra's "Raincoat in the River"? That record sounds me out in space every time I listen to it.

I haven't heard this, but I sure want to look for it now!

William Parker is awesome. In fact, I'm going to put on Peach Orchard right now - a fantastic record.

Have you seen the movie "sweet and low down?" It has Sean Penn in it and Django is Penn's arch nemesis. great flick. a woody allen flick.

I've been listening to "Rare Django" - or something like that - that I checked out from the library recently - it's great, early recordings. I keep on meaning to pick up the box set, it is apparently pretty cheap.

That may actually be my favorite Woody Allen movie, and Sean Penn was just fantastic.

I watched this zombie nazi movie yesterday: Shock Waves. The soundtrack was this incredible synthed out thing. Really great. The movie was boring otherwise.

I watched "A View from the Top" last night. A comey w/ Mike Meyers about the life of a stewardess. Christina Applegate (my favorite vegan) was in it and so was lots of bad Bon Jovi and Journey. I still can't be OK saying that music is fun or that I even kinda enjoy it, how can I when I'm covered in goose bumps, like when you see a car crash, those kinda goosebumps.

I think, probably Annie Hall and Sleeper are my favorite Allen movies, but Sweet and Lowdown is up there. If you haven't seen Annie Hall by now, by all means rent it. It's hilarious.

Some good stuff here!

pshp, i have a box set that you will love. click on this link. the remasters are amazing and the price is right!
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00004S5WA/qid=1093383179/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/102-2572236-0012962?v=glance&s=music

There is also a Hot Fives and Sevens box set from the same label which sounds fantastic.

I saw Ornette last weekend. What a treat. Greg Cohen (Masada, etc) and Tony Falanga on basses and Denardo (Ornette's son who can be heard at a younger age on Ornette at 11, Crisis, etc) under a storm sky in front of a large stone wall. Ornette was in a technicolor suit, brimmed hat, white plastic alto.

How's the latest Ironman release? The copies that I have bought have sucked. The vibraphone sounds like a toy. This is an amazing album that deserves the treatment.

Is anyone else looking forward to the final Elliott Smith album, Basement On A Hill?

Ornette still makes all of his own clothes, right? What a strange, wonderful man. I think he's my favorite vegan.

I am looking forward to the last Elliott Smith album. I also don't care what the hip indie kids think - I really like both XO and Figure 8. In fact, I'm going to put Figure 8 on right now.

i would love it even more if you would buy it for me :P looks very fine indeed.

mebbie we should have a movie thread.

the new clinic album is good, but i can't say i like it as well as walking with thee or internal wrangler. maybe i'm being too hasty.

manhattan was good too. the last woody allen film i really liked.

courtney love is a funny, funny lady.

i'm too lazy for most jazz.

there's a song by interpol, called untitled. it made me cry all day. 3 chords. about 9 words. some days it don't take much.

the end.

The Train Kept A-Rollin' by Johnny Burnette's Rock'n'Roll Trio.

It's a frantic, kinetic, electrifying piece of rockabilly that makes me want to move to the 1950's.
