Liveblogging! Commentary for “ITDE” 11/20/10

Came in to the station with a little Brian Eno playing on automation– which made great sense, as it was following an accidental string of train-themed gospel and blues songs, ack!

Then again, I have to admit, I have no idea where today’s “It’s Too Damn Early” is going. I’m feeling this one out in the dark! So far, it’s hanging together quite well. I like this older Vertonen disc, and it actually got me off on the right foot– the Rune Lindblad and Ralph White/Horaflora material all went together really well, and gave a great lead-in to… *sigh*  Well, I was going to say, a great lead-in to Vanessa Rossetto and Steven Flato’s new disc, “Hwaet,” but apparently, it just sounds like someone eating potato chips to the person who just phoned in.

At any rate, I’ve been enjoying this album. Flato is bringing something to Rossetto’s sound that seems to really challenge her, and the quality of improvisation is quite high for both.
