Max Roach Quintet, with Booker Little, on…Look Up and Live!

This is an amazing piece of total nonsense from 1959. Look Up And Live was one of those TV network Sunday morning shows produced by various religions (the legit ones who only wanted some of your money, not all of it like the cults and Southern cathedrals). I remember seeing Tristano and Konitz on an episode. I think the Modern Jazz Quartet did one too. But this is truly amazing because Max Roach’s incredible 1959 quintet with Booker Little, George Coleman, Ray Draper and Art Davis gives an amazing performance after a dorky introduction. But then they are required to continue providing background music for some of the worst written and staged hipster/beat poet bullshit I’ve ever seen. An episode of Dragnet would have rung truer!

Here’s an old video made for us by Sophie Kenny at SNK Films. Filmed at the Yardbird. There was zero space for her to work with and the results are amazing. Love the colours…

Free School Friday:
A D M I N D A Y (at Kings Heath)


I had this job once, I worked at computer company, and I’d never really had a job like that before. I’d wake up as late as I could, splash water in my face and jump on the Subway. When the work day was over I’d be a little aimless. I’d go get drinks with people I worked with, didn’t know what to do with myself when I got home. After a week of that I felt terrible, so I deliberately woke up at 5am and read. Then went to work and at lunch I read. At the end of the day I’d get the fuck out of there and go home and read because I realised: “Oh I’m a person who reads and I do this work to pay the bills”.

A lot of the approaches I got are people saying “Why don’t you do it at one station as art project?” I don’t want to make an art project, I’m not an artist in that way. I don’t want ‘James Murphy’s art sculpture’. I want a civic good. This would be civically good for the city that I live in and the thing I like the most about, the Subway. It’s my favourite thing about New York! That can only be done if it’s a thing that gets implemented and I’m forgotten about.
