Improv isn't everyone's cup of tea to be sure, so no complaining if it doesn't sound like Freddie Hubbard.

A direct link if you prefer.

I keep forgetting things: via ILM. Also, if there's a way to cache this or something, that might be a good idea--I don't know how much bandwidth he has lying about.

WFMU is also hosting it:

It's a pretty nice little piece, oddly. Kerbaj has semi-publically wrung his hands a bit about an interesting facet of it, too: the absurdity of trying to make aesthetic decisions while being bombed.

Yeah, that's the direct link. I was expecting you to show up :)

...I'm hoping he gets the rest of the 40 some odd minutes uploaded or mastered and released at some point...

Fantastic. Scary. Great find.

It's a bit like the opening sequence of The Party, with Peter Sellers playing the bugle under heavy fire.

yeah, except it's not a *movie*, and real people are dying, as we speak.

That was surprisingly good. Terrifying, but good.

Man: The Ronnettes sing medieval agrarian history, please.
Clerk: Sorry, we're sold out. We've got First World War Noises...
Man: Oh, is that the Ronnettes?
Clerk: No, the French and the Germans.
