Autumn: A Jazz Mix
Here’s a laid-back little jazz playlist for the season. Hope you guys like it! I tried to keep it cool and not too coffeehouse-cute.
(Album art is Childe Hassam, Street Scene in Paris, Autumn, 1889)
put this on while you are biking and it’s sunny and you feel good
The album begins with the bang of a gong (tam-tam), followed by cymbal washes. Jimmy Garrison follows on bass with the four-note motif which structures the entire movement. Coltrane’s solo follows. Besides soloing upon variations of the motif, at one point Coltrane repeats the four notes over and over in different modulations. After many repetitions, the motif becomes the vocal chant “A Love Supreme”, sung by Coltrane (accompanying himself via overdubs).
its like the auditory equivalent of having a significant other run their hand very very slowly up your inner thigh
i want to get into bed with that recording i just posted it’s so hot
sorry but this is THE version of this song
here’s what i am making for all of u
Thaïs Méditation performed by Yo Yo Ma
aka my early autumn string jam
modernist woman artists are so important 2 me
omg same i’m so much more interested in texts about the pieces than like in the pieces themselves lmao
yAS and I mean that makes a fair amount of sense considering what they are…lately i’ve gotten really turned off to surrealism because of how blithely it uses the female nude in destroyed sections or as a surface for the male dream space to spin its wheels but reading about it and coming to that conclusion felt good
& the reason i never got all the way with dadism was because it crosses SO MUCH into poetry and it was like juggling two workloads so that’s why i’m suuuuuper excited to delve into it with this course. frick!!
when I was in philly last summer they had all the dadists & surrealists out like i got to see so many major works which is great because even if those aren’t my favorite works to react to emotionally i LOVE LOVE LOVE reading about them. fuckin bless.
fuckin HELL YEAH dude the prof makes such interesting selections i love it so much stuff i’ve never covered before
RIGHT? i’m saving stein for later this week and started off with the baroness elsa and her work is such a THRILL…possibly my favorite so far
& last week’s slick combo of art history and poetry had me reeling i can’t wait to get to dadaism for the same reason
javeliner are you still modpo-ing? i’m so stoked for this week’s selections wtf
