New Day Jazz

Justin Desmangles

This afternoon, Matthew Shipp returns to discuss his most recent recording, featuring Michael Bisio and Whit Dickey, Elastic Aspects (Thirsty Ear).
Later in the program, Greil Marcus, pictured at right, joins us to talk about his new book, The Doors: A Lifetime of Listening to Five Mean Years
.

 

 "Nobody reads a song like Greil Marcus, whose prose is as passionate and omnivorous as the music he loves. Here he travels by way of Thomas Pynchon, Pop Art and Charles Manson to bring the chaotic, majestic, death-haunted Doors back to doomed and haunting life."  -- Salman Rushdie

"No one thinks or writes like Greil Marcus.  He has a genius for putting the aural dream-language of music into words, for making you 'hear' songs you thought you knew as if for the first time.  Not just hear, but, as he puts it, 'feel on your skin' well after the song is over.  Because 'the story it's telling is still going on.'" -- Mary Gaitskill
