Catamount Community Radio - April 6, 2014

Went to the Kool Keith show in Asheville Friday evening. It was great. Dude can spit the rhymes. I should have taken a notebook with me to write down some of the crazy shit he said. Pictures here. Dinner beforehand at Heiwa Shokudo was delicious.

The show this morning was all Lennon, all morning. I recently discovered Bill Frisell's Lennon project, All We Are Asking. I played almost all of it, the songs interspersed with Beatles, Lennon's solo work, and covers by others. Although primarily considered a jazz player, Frisell is into country and americana. With their pedal steel and violin, Frisell's arrangements infuse Lennon's songs with a country flavor, and it really works. I imagined ... imagined Jim Dandy up in Maine, listening to the instrumentals, but thinking of the words, which he almost certainly knows by heart. I didn't talk much during the show; I let the music speak for itself.

We'll be back to the usual shenanigans next week.
