Other Minds Presents: Lester Bowie Tribute Concert Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 139 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Lester Bowie was best known as co-founder and leader of the Art Ensemble of Chicago from 1968 until his passing in 1999. This tribute concert, a benefit for Jazz In Flight, was organized by Sukari Ivester (Bowie's daughter) with added assistance from Other Minds. The concert brought to San Francisco, Art Ensemble members Roscoe Mitchell (reeds), Famadou Don Moye (percussion), and special guests Corey Wilkes (trumpet), James Carter (saxophones), Frank Lacy (trombone), Jon Jang (piano), and Peter Barshay (bass). These stellar musicians paid homage to Bowie, whom The Village Voice declared "the wiliest jazz provocateur of his generation,” by performing a selection of free-jazz improvisations, as well as a number of songs written or recorded by Lester Bowie. Ranging from the New Orleans jazz infused “When the Spirit Returns,” to the bluesy “G Minor,” and the more abs...

Ode To Gravity: Interspecies Music Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 88 min Event Type: Other Finds Program Origin: KPFA For many years, Jim Nollman has explored the limits of human-animal communication. Along the way he has made some highly provocative tapes. In this program he talks with Charles Amirkhanian and introduces his recordings, including his now famous “Turkey Song”, in which human slide whistlers perform a call-and-response improvisation with the flock of gobblers at the Willy Bird Farm. Also heard is a recording of a colony of kangaroo rats and wild burros, made during a recent visit to Death Valley.

Ode To Gravity: Bon Bonn Bon Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 52 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Originally broadcast on the 200th anniversary of Beethoven's birth, this program would have had the deaf composer holding his head in amazement. An energetic mix of assorted musical genres, this program combines the madness one would associate with the Fugs with the elegance reminiscent of a Chopin nocturne, and with a healthy dose of jazz and a little bit of poetry by Ezra Pound thrown in for seasoning. The show concludes with a work for piano by the Maestro himself. A stunning tour de force of free-form avant-garde radio. Produced by Charles Amirkhanian and Richard Friedman this show also introduces the Harvey Shaw Ensemble of Florida in their West Coast premiere broadcast. Musical Selections: [unidentified mix] -- [an improvisation] / Harvey Shaw Ensemble -- [unidentified piece] / Django Reinhardt -- Nocturne in C Major Op. 54 No. 4 (1889-91) / Edvard Grieg -- Three Spanish Songs and Dance...

He describes how he was much taken with the adventurous music being composed in the early part of the 20th century, but how he himself sometimes sought to create a simpler and more melodic type of music, several examples of which are heard. After listening to several of Mr. Carter’s early recorded compositions there is also a live performance of several of his pieces for timpani, the complexity of which are described by the performer, Barry Jekowsky. Jekowsky also demonstrates Carter’s technique of “metric modulation.” Also discus...
