Somebody on another site just happened to mention Bob Marley to me, so off to Jamaica we go. The magic of the internet.

Y'all have seen me post about Boogie Woogie before, but trust me, this one is a tad different than most boogie woogie piano. The man's name is Luca Sestak, and the song is "Joogie Wazz." It reminds me of the Beat generation and chaos music all at once, only faster.

Side trip: chaos music was a thing when I was a kid. A short-lived thing, but a thing, nonetheless. I think it was pretty reflective of the times; it was birthed by the Beatniks and influenced by social and political upheaval of the times. It's a lot to get into, but I'll put a couple of examples in the next post. In the meantime:

"Joogie Wazz."

Okay, most of us have at least heard of chaos theory when it comes to math. It's all about randomness and the unexpected. Chaos music tried to reflect that ordered disorder (or disordered order) rising out of...whatever it arises from. I mean, thermodynamic theory says that systems naturally tend toward disorder, but maybe we don't know what we're looking at. Thank gawd I was a liberal arts major.

Anyway, chaos music didn't go over all that well, except among the '50s beatniks and jazz musicians, but they were mostly stoned most of the time, and they gave us hippies. Somewhat typical of chaos music is the album "Chaos," by Paul Bley, which, interestingly enough, didn't debut until nearly 50 years after chaos music was a thing (on college campuses and New York coffee houses). It's got lots of randomness, though I don't know that it has much in the way of unexpectedness. Still, I dig it, man!

Next time: fractals!

Not a big fan of the music, but had never heard of the drummer Viola Smith. Good video for being as old as it is.

That's awesome. The video you posted is actually a repeat of the initial sequence. The original version is only about 2 and a half minutes.

I did find this article, one of several, surprisingly. Nothing about her death, though. As far as I can tell, the wiki entry is from last year because it lists her age as 102, having been born in 1912.

This is Baby Dodds. I know I've posted him before, but some of Smith's work reminds me of Dodds. He was more improvisational that she was, or at least in a different way. Having said all that, I don't really know if this is Baby Dodds or not; not for sure. As far as I know, there are relatively few recordings of him, and the ones that do exist are pretty short...under a minute/minute and a half. Still, we know enough about him, and he was in a number of groups that people can put together recordings of what he would sound like if we had more of him, and they're probably pretty accurate.

I picked a recommended song list on youtube that started with "Come and get Your Love," by Redbone (the first commecially successful Native American group). The list has devolved since that first song.

This is one of those songs you probably love to hate. The Runaways with "Cherry Bomb."

The name of that group reminded me of this song.

I don't hear a lot of acappella from day-to-day. I love the Wailin' Jennings, and this is a great version of "Storm Comin'"
