Well, I'm going through a rocky time in my life at the moment and smooooth and up-beat seems to be the best music therapy for me just now - I am listening to the lighter side of the Lab at the moment too, For some reason Dots and Loops (which I have always loved - and still do) brings back such powerful memories and emotions that I can't listen to it - which is a real shame. The stuff that keeps me up at the moment is mostly the older work - Refried ecto, TRNBWA and MAQ - esp. International colouring contest and that sort of atmosphere...

The light that will never cease to fail is failing a bit again.

But the BBC documantary on Monk sounds great though - I looked on YouTube but couldn't find it - any suggestions?


Hope things pick up for you Dara. Music can help you through all manner of shit.

I think I got confused about the Thelonious Monk documentary. They played an old concert a few months ago, which is sadly no longer available:

The documentary I was thinking about was something called the Jazz Baroness a fascinating programmme about a posh English lady who shocked her family by leaving her stately home life behind to live in New York patronising several of the best jazz musicians of the day - and becoming Thelonious' lover.
Couldn't find a direct link to it - YouTube have deleted to it, but I found this link to the equivalent radio programme here:

I'm listening to it as I type this - well worth a listen.
