Someone, was it you?, actually posted a Gong jazz track. Now that's a straw that'll break a camels back😂 Saying that, Spinal Taps Slap Bass Odyssey certainly gets me out the sofa😂

See you at Stone Enge. 

Yes it was me ..guilty as charged with the Gong selection, in fact I posted two tracks ! hehe...

I'm trying my best to corrupt the thread !

I went to Stonehenge once funnily enough  when I was 15 years old and it put me off  music festivals for life,thinking back now makes me shudder at the thought of all those hippies together at the same time and in the same place...There's nothing worse than a dishonest hippy as my dear old granny used to say while listening to 'Tales From Topographic Oceans' by Yes and smoking a hookah pipe.

Stonehenge was also the first time I tried this weird thing called LSD which some people here may have heard about and I saw Hawkwind play live in the very early hours of the morning...they came on and played a version of 'Hurry On Sundown' which seemed to last about an hour in my altered state of mind.

It was bloody magical though seeing Hawkwind in full on Prog mode as the sun was coming up, so I guess my experience at Stonehenge wasn't all bad really hahaha..

Your a blessed and funny man. I used to steal Tales From a Topographic Ocean and play it from my older brother. Eventually I scratched it so bad he give me a beating wearing a kaftan, I've hated hippies ever since. 

As with all mankind we have more in common than separates us. 😀

My mum's favourite sayings to me was "Your always at the arse end of the mustard" and the evergreen "Trouble with you son is your full of piss n vinegar". Always condiment based and looking back so very true.

Lololol..

Im curious,did he put on the Kaftan to administer the said beating in a more efficient manner ...freedom of movement in the limbs and all that sort of stuff to whack you even harder ? 

I know it's your brother and all  but if so that is a dirty, rotten stunt to pull and for a so called hippy it's not very peace and love either is it now I come to think about it...

I need to go for a lie down now and listen to some Emerson, Lake & Palmer on triple gatefold vinyl...

Soulsides this one is exclusively for you. Would put my Judo suit on in front of a full length mirror and practice my Bruce Lee moves. 😡

I must apologise to anybody thinking that this was a serious thread about jazz. Normal service will be restored as soon as possible 🙄

I'm a big fan of Tys Van Leer, the flute player ex- Focus member. I have the 2 x LP "Instrocpections" and some tracks produced by jazz keyboardist Bob James!, as a cover of "Hocus Pocus" with the "Tirol - style" chants at the start (he is considered a "fusion" musician). Tys Van Leer was here in Spain and toured with spanish rock singer Miguel Ríos. I also can see the fine line between rock and jazz-rock, pure "rock" and fusion, when I hear Mahavishnu, Weather Report, Return To Forever, Jean Luc Ponty or spanish stuff by musicians like Iceberg or Jordi Sabatés (reminds me to Chick Corea!)

To my knowledge Thias is still in Focus and they're about to embark on another UK tour, but Jan Akkerman is long gone. The drummer whose name eludes me is still amazing.

I always get into bother from the punkrock teenies when I review prog gigs on Bebop Spoken Here, but prog taken broadly, is more jazz than classical, and the stuff about elves and wizards is overblown. Uriah Heep were the worst offenders and they were sub-Deep Purple, with very little to do with prog.

Just cos I'm no longer sure, ya'll know about tomaitoes and tomartoes and potaitos and portatos. Right?

I think I get the beef that goes with the two veg.

Always worry about Jazz Trolls myself. Close your windows at night incase a journalist comes in and steals your good intentions.

Dick Griffin 'Multiphonic Blues' from the 'Now Is The Time' lp Trident Records 1979.

Trombone maestro Dick Griffin known for his work with the Strata East label and Roland Kirk ,stepping out as leader on the excellent 'Now Is The Time' album.

 

Bunky Green  'Funk Ain't A Word' from the 'Transformations' lp Vanguard Records 1977.

 Had the pleasure of speaking with Al Keith who is the co-writer of this late last year, he's  a very nice fella indeed and there wasn't an elf or a wizard in sight during our conversation....
