Our Turn Again

My heart goes out to the folks in the Gulf/Mississippi Area. It looks like our turn again with major typhoon!


DAO4: Chapter 3


Sepia Sky at Twilight: No.48



I can't tell you how nice it feels when you sift through all the junk e-mails and find something like this in your inbox. I t was raining hard outside while I read this, but the sun was shining bigtime inside. Thanks so much Evo for taking the time to write this.
PS-Evo and his partner Michael have one rip-roaringly funny and witty podcast. I should know, I'm not an easy laugh!

Hi Mark,

No idea how I found your show. Someone must have told me to add it to my
aggregator and I did. When I listen to a podcast for the first time and
it puzzles me, it's usually a good sign. This time was no exception.

I've listened to a few of the episodes and am hooked. Your tastes in
tunes are just as strange as mine. Sweet! Also noticed you're reading
DaOitMK (Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom) by Cory (Doctorow) and releasing it as a podiobook. Very cool. I've stuck the first few chapters in my MP3 player and will find some time to listen. It was cool to read, and I'm looking forward to listening, too!

Just letting you know I'm enjoying the work. :)

Thinking of Michael B.

Please note this is a special multi-media podcast inspired by and dedicated to the very gifted, and unforunately right now, the very ill-Michael Brecker. In this you'll find some excellent music in the background and foreground from Michael B. and others, talk about some adjustments to DAO program and Cory Doctorow's new work in progress, hear a lecture by the late Hunter S. Thomson, hear me introduce my audio partners in crime, ride the podcasting wave-great shout from Brother Love, talk about the concept of podsafe music, and read a passage from Brooklyn: A State of Mind. It runs long: 68 minutes. No I'm not going to make this the norm. In summary, if you would like further info about Michael please visit his site, and leave an e-mail let him know you care! You people are the best!

Hello World

On the subject of podcasting and it's effect on independent (podsafe) musicians, NYC's Brother Love performer/composer of Summertime & Push (#1 & #3 songs on Podsafe Music Net) had this comment:
"Everyone is buzzing about all of this - I get emails and calls asking me if Podcasting Is worth lookin' into - I'm like HELL YES IT IS THE WAVE OF THE FUTURE Ride on My Friend - Ride that Wave! Brolo"

So appropriately, if someone asks me,"Hey Bluesman does this podcasting really mean anything?" I shall reply succintly,"HELL YES IT IS THE WAVE OF THE FUTURE AND I'M RIDING IT ALL THE WAY MY FRIEND !"


Welcome DAO Fans

Welcome to all you DAO fans! Nice to have you come by blog and download first 2 shows. I'm sure it's quite a bit different than your usual audiobook experience. Fret not, we will be making some minor adjustments to better compliment the narative flow of Cory's fine piece of fiction. DAO3-the 2nd chapter should be up by the weekend and hopefully will really kick things into high gear. I will also redo DAO1 & 2 to reflect uninterupted narrative approach per DAO 3, so please be a little patient, it'll be worth it. Please feel free to make comments/or suggestions or e-mail me. I'm a desexed marshmallow, but have plenty of whuffie available-ping away. Please also try and consider subscribing to show via rss feed, or feedburner links with ITunes, IPodderX, IPodder, or Odeo.

Look forward to making this a fun journey with you, so quit deadheading and listen in.

http://allmusic.com Michael Brecker Bio

Biographyby Scott Yanow

A remarkable technician and a highly influential tenor saxophonist (the biggest influence on other tenors since Wayne Shorter), Michael Brecker took a long time before getting around to recording his first solo album. He spent much of his career as a top-notch studio player who often appeared backing pop singers, leading some jazz listeners to overlook his very strong improvising skills.

Brecker originally started on clarinet and alto before switching to tenor in high school. Early on, he played with rock and R&B-oriented bands. In 1969, he moved to New York, and soon joined Dreams, an early fusion group. Brecker was with Horace Silver during 1973-1974, gigged with Billy Cobham, and then co-led the Brecker Brothers (a commercially successful funk group) with his brother, trumpeter Randy Brecker, for most of the 1970s. He was with Steps (later Steps Ahead) in the early '80s, doubled on an EWI (electronic wind instrument), and made a countless number of studio sessions during the 1970s and '80s, popping up practically everywhere (including with James Taylor, Yoko Ono, and Paul Simon). With the release of his first album as a leader in 1987 (when he was already 38), Brecker started appearing more often in challenging jazz settings. He recorded additional sets as a leader (in 1988 and 1990), teamed up with McCoy Tyner on one of 1995's most rewarding jazz recordings, and toured with a reunited Brecker Brothers band. Two Blocks From the Edge followed in 1998, and a year later, Brecker returned with Time Is of the Essence. Nearness of You: The Ballad Book was released in spring 2001.


Critical Need for Michael Brecker

Some serious news-a lot of you may know Michael Brecker from the Brecker Brothers or various other musical works. He has a life and death situation. Please check this site or Parking in Bitterman Circle for details.

Gaelic-Celtic Epiphany

Perhaps due to listening to Mark Hunter's fine, Tartan Podcast it's got me thinking of more things Scottish and particularly, films. Two masterpieces of cinema totally unalike and unrelated other than being stories about Scotland are Local Hero and Trainspotting. I just watched Trainspotting again last night. If you haven't seen either of these movies please do so. Please note that Trainspotting is not an ideal family picture due to strong subject matter, images, and language.

The third film I mentioned is Irish and another wonderful story with great music and a charming cast of "unknowns", with a very much "known" director-Alan Parker.

Down and Out#1

Well friends the adventure begins-this is first episode of Cory Doctorow's: Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom a Creative Commons published novel. I am reciting this fine novel by Cory with Creative Commons and podsafe music in the background and during pauses. I plan on doing one reading (chapter?) each week. I give my warmest thanks to Cory for personally assenting to this project, to Mike Potter over at Coffeehouse To Go podcast for informing me that this work existed, and to Edinburgh Scotland's musical giant's-Sans Trauma whose music was a must in my mind for accompanying this project (their song Stare at the Floor opens and closes each episode).
