00:00 - 00:03We've emailed Les Instants Chavirés in Paris
00:04 - 00:05a few pubs in Belgium
00:05 - 00:07and now we're looking at London...
00:08 - 00:12Cafe Oto, the Vortex...
00:12 - 00:15as well as The London Review of Books.
00:17 - 00:19And Wels, Nickelsdorf
00:19 - 00:21Ulrichsberg, Vienna.
00:24 - 00:26My leader…
00:27 - 00:28Those venues...
00:31 - 00:33Those venues are completely booked.
00:34 - 00:36Brötzmann, Zorn, the Dutch
00:53 - 00:58All of you who think Colin Stetson is an innovator may leave.
01:13 - 01:15The same guys every year!
01:15 - 01:17They book the same old farts every year!
01:18 - 01:23Zorn turns 60, Evan Parker 70
01:25 - 01:28Brötzmann trots his tired ass
01:29 - 01:31The Ex have some new schtick
01:31 - 01:34How can the Europeans
01:34 - 01:37Listen to the same old free jazz farting
01:37 - 01:40Year after year
01:40 - 01:42But Zorn's latest is about cowboy Kabbala
01:42 - 01:46Why must he defile every musical genre?
01:46 - 01:48Marc Ribot and Vandermark's new duo…
01:48 - 01:52Perfect! I have time to save up for the 30 LP box set!
01:53 - 01:54Let's hear some women players?
01:56 - 01:57Musicians from anywhere but New York and Chicago
01:57 - 02:00anywhere than Berlin, Tokyo,
02:00 - 02:03Paris, Amsterdam, and fucking Norway!
02:04 - 02:08There must some goddamn improvisers elsewhere.
02:08 - 02:13Anything but the same fucking old men
02:14 - 02:16that I've seen for decades
02:17 - 02:21They can start by banning all men who play saxophones!
02:27 - 02:29FMP's LP called "The Family"
02:30 - 02:34has no women on it
02:34 - 02:36A family with no women!
02:41 - 02:42The presenters are cowards
02:43 - 02:47They ignore young musicians
02:48 - 02:53So they can party with their friends
02:54 - 02:56Meanwhile we play door gigs
02:56 - 02:59And sleep on dirty floors
03:00 - 03:02So that Cecil Taylor can buy some blow!
03:04 - 03:07Don't worry. He can afford it.
03:14 - 03:16I can't help wondering
03:19 - 03:23If it's worth booking a tour
03:25 - 03:26Or to stop
03:31 - 03:33Playing music altogether
03:40 - 03:46Why travel 5,000 miles to play for three people
03:46 - 03:49When I can play for three people here at home
03:53 - 03:56Cancel Cafe Oto
