Tonight I'm going to be interviewed for a TV documentary about underground jazz clubs in the US. I want to make "the cut" into the final footage so what the hell do I say? I need some good soundbite/one-liners that sound profound.  :lol:

 

I'm sure the questions will be open-ended like "what do you think of this place?" kind of thing.

Relate it to like a speakeasy yet legal.

Give me a clever quote. The only things that survive the cut are 2-3 second soundbites.

Talk about how Jazz was once considered Pop music but is now diminished (back) to the underground? How it is thriving there?

Jazz is like wine. When it is new, it is only for the experts, but when it gets older, everybody wants it.

I would pull something from history, like:

 

"This place reminds me of the scene of 1969 when Free Jazz was reaching a kind of nadir/nexus.
Within the industry it was controversial. Classic traditionalists,
beboppers included, were outraged by men in dashikis and sandals
jumping on stage and just BLOWING their guts out creating screaming
torrents of action. Most musicians involved with this crying anarchy
could get no bookings beyond the New York loft set, but now you can find these gems all over. It's a really great scene."

 

 

:lol:

Jazz is the last refuge of the untalented. Jazz musicians enjoy themselves more than anyone listening to them does.

You're not moving me yet but keep it coming!

 

I was thinking maybe something along the lines of how the top acts who are in town playing big gigs at Yoshis and the other marquee places all want to come and perform a set here because they've heard about it from their friends and it has a certain mystique.  But that of course is pretty obvious and why they're doing the documentary in the first place.

Maybe something about how accessible the scene is to everyone, my 4-year old niece will be there, there are dogs roaming around, cigar smoking out back, "other" smoking in the front yard. No jazz snobbery like you might find in a city club.

A statement supporting the underlying theme of the documentary might actually be a "keeper".

Agreed. And the owner is too modest to sing his own praises too loudly so maybe it falls to us to do that.

You might want to go with the getting so bombed you are guaranteed to be cut, rather than potentially included and  forever mocked.

The owner's written English isn't great so I couldn't tell if the filmmaker won an Emmy or if her name is Emmy.  :lol: We'll see.

 

I've decided to wear my 2012 GOTV T-shirt with some hipster accoutrements on top. Don't say I never do anything for ya.  :lol:

THE UNDERGROUND JAZZ IS THAT FEELING YOU GET WHEN MINGUS DROPS THE BOMBS LIKE NAPALM ON YOUR GROOVE JUNGLE AKA SOUL, MONK CHILLS TO THE SIDE WITH THE SWANG DIP SWANG DIP SWANG DIP, A BUNKER BOMB TO YOUR DEEMSTER TRENCH AKA MINDS EYE. MAX CHILLS IN THE BACK WITH THE TSKA TSKA TSKA, A GROOVE MISSLE SET ON B'GOCK, AND BIRD BRINGS IT ALL BACK HOME WITH THE DEEDLE DE DEE DEEDLE DE DEE, A PSYCHIC BREAKDOWN MINE, HIDDEN IN THE TRANCE PASTURE, BLOWING OPEN YOUR BISCO CHAKRA, THAT IS THE UNDERGROUND JAZZ.

Lol. "Deemster Trench."

That reminds me about my music teacher's lesson on Miles Davis.

"Later on he wrote an album called Bitch's Brew and, despite what they might tell you, IT WAS NOT A FUCKING JOKE!!"

Lmao

In all seriousness, the filmmaker asked that we not discuss what was said until the final product is released. 

 

I signed a release form but that doesn't necessarily mean I made the cut.  But he did interview a number of people who he didn't ask to sign, so it is an indication.
