Easy Run (4.5k)

It’s currently overcast and damp outside today.  However, it’s not raining so I may as well lace up and take a quick, easy jog through the streets and lane ways of deepest, darkest Ridgeway to a little wacky, abstract chaos during my sweaty 4.5k run complete with drills.  It’s been two days of recovery so I’m eager to slip in a few kilometers.  Anyhoo.

They say that “into every runner’s life, a little weirdness must fall”, and to that I say: DAMN STRAIGHT!  Like what we do is considered ‘normal’ anyway, right?  Today’s weirdness  then just happened to fall in the form of an improvisational set performed by organist John Medeski of MMW fame, and Canadian born turntablist Kid Koala.

Recorded at the Synchro Stage as part of the ‘True People’s Celebration’  in Yamanakako, Yamanashi, Japan, back in 2006, this live document features a unique jam encompassing three separate pieces of Avant-Garde jazz, turntable, and jazz-funk improv.  John is known to have experiment live music with a record spinner (DJ Logic) in the past, and as a conclusion to the Kid’s opening act for MMW at this particular festival, he carried on over these three tracks only leading into the main MMW set afterwards.  Later on in November they played a sold out show together at the Merkin Hall in New York which instantly became a MMW trader’s favorite.

About crazytigerrabbitman

I am a fat guy and always will be in the same way they say that “once an alcoholic; always an alcoholic”. Eventually I got upset about my poor health and ballooning body frame so I decided to change things for the better. Some people sign up for Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, or whatever fad diet program it is that happens to be occupying the majority of air time on the boob tube. Other people prefer to run out and purchase the latest, fold away, piece of shit being hawked by some celebrity has-been. Me? I decided to take up triathlon. I had abused my body over the years with bacon cheeseburgers, pints of beer and double-dipped donuts, and the time had now come to abuse my body with physical exertion, perseverance and hard work instead; penitence in it's purest form. The time had come to kick my ass. I am Terry Nash and I am the “fat and the furious”.
