Why we work
Three generations. John, Dave, Max Mahoney.
In his element.
Dave's Playlist from Jennifer Mahoney
My personal tune to sing to Dave would be from Archie Shepp's Blase
disc, but I like There is a Balm in Gilead, Jeanne Lee vocalist. I wish
Interesting to see how vast the DAM playlist is. The modeling gigs of
recent years were where he inseminated unsuspecting painters, drawers
and sculptors with world music.
Here's my list of songs that moved Dave that have come to mind over the
past 10 days. Jeez, over all the years of living with him we traveled
through so many phases, mostly with Dave at the helm. These are some
that I remember as recurrent DAM favorites. We never did much country,
but there must be some from the Breakers' playlist.
Caroline No -- this eluded him -- I think he had it on vinyl and every
once in a while we'd catch it on KALX --
Surf's up (original version)
In my room -- he identified heavily but did not think the tune itself
Because - a capella version on the anthology of out takes.
Blase, recorded Paris 1969
revered for the "This ain't a hate thing; it's a LOVE thing" phrase
Three pieces in Old Style, first movement.
Kachaturian, gayane ballet suite, cut 6 on 2001: Space Odyssey sountrack
Samuel Barber, adagio for strings -- this was OVERDONE after 9-1-1. But
he liked it.
Coltrane -- sheesh I have to check which disc it's on -- Chet knows
Black Thighs -- dunno who and now he's dead I can't ask him. waaa. He
sang it a lot, but I think it was Art Ensemble???
Sinatra -- I wish I were in love again
revered by DAM for the phrase: "when love congeals /it soon reveals/
the faint aroma of performing seals"
the Nuns: Suicide Child - more lyrics stuck in the huge vault of DAM
Arvo Part - De Profundis - title track is good, 7 ("the mass is over"
- a nice 28-second tune), #19 beatitudes in english,
Chants de l'Eglise de Rome -- I'll have to figure out which cut if any
one in particular
Van Halen/ZZ top?: Hot for Teacher/sharp dressed man
Huey Lewis: Perfect World -- this was his bounce-the-baby-Max tune. If
Dave went to his own memorial, he'd cry at this one and most would
Soundtrack to The Insider, cut 3
Soundtrack to Shawshank redemption, I dunno which one, Max can hum it.
Soundtrack to To Kill a Mockingbird, first track is good enough.
Morton Feldman's--- Rothko Chapel -- heard that one a plenty; it's long
Olivier Messaien -- string quartet (I think "For the end of time"??)
Ralph Stanley: God Put a Rainbow in the Clouds, from Almost Home
