  • Wife Bothering Jazz

    I was playing Don Cherry's Organic Music Society the other day and Mrs Medlar really liked it

    This clearly runs contrary to tales of wife bothering jazz that have been aired here, so, to address the issue and find a balance, which out there jazz stuff does your better half enjoy?

    Aha, I've been involved in a similar discussion of late with someone on Waxi. The key, according to Mrs P, is that for her Jazz has to have a degree of "tension", so Bill Evans is good but Art Pepper is "nice but dull".

    I wouldn't necessarily call it "out there", but she loves Monk, Mingus, Dolphy, and most Coltrane as well as Yamashita Yosuke and Moriyama Takeo.

      Absolutely... None, but I persevere. Infact my wife has an inbuilt suspicion of anything that isn't Indie rock or Duran Duran.

              Well we're listening to The All Angels Concerts on Emanem right now with the wife sat 1 yard from one of the speakers. First 12 minute track is Fabienne Audeoud solo voice shreaking more than singing, less whack than Diamanda Galas or some Yoko but still very very improv.

                Love his recordings. Still missing one (as you know) but the "East Plants" is a work of beauty and not at all wife-bothering...
                If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

                  Yeah, my wife had records by all of the aforementioned when we met - the moment she put 'Love Supreme' on at her place I knew she was a keeper (ok the fact that she named Surf's Up as her favorite BB album didn't hurt either..)

                    I think if there's a familiarity like Coltrane - favourite things it's tolerated, but any Coltrane, or Joe Henderson, Saunders, Shepp etc that's got a hard edge to it will tend to create friction and bring on "did they eat that goat after they finished strangling it" kind of comments

                      "goat strangling" is thus added to the WBJ continuum. good work, Mrs Proteus

                        That video of someone playing his gf Coltrane and she said it sounded like the Muppet Show band tuning up.

                          Most common criticism I get of my jazz listening habits is 'it sounds out of tune' or 'it's out of tune' as one guy who played guitar in a heavy metal band decided to lecture me about one particular record I played.

                          It wasn't out of tune, he was out of tune... I really should have said that to him at the time.

                            I was playing something by the pianist Michael Wollny, last week, and Mrs SK asked if he was playing it with his feet. That's a first, because she tolerates most stuff and we go to a jazz club once a month as well. The only thing I really can't get away with is Cecil Taylor-but only the later stuff; she has her own copy of 'Unit Structures'.
