Jackson Pollock, Donald Trump, Chicago discussed on WTF with Marc Maron Podcast

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Yeah. So the musicians just sat down and said, okay. We're artists were not going to play for you to dance. We're going to play for you to listen. I don't need to be in that big band. Yes. Sit down. Listen. Yeah. And you know, they were playing in the cabarets which were in the basements of apartment houses, basically. So there were no drums, initially because the that would make too much noise and the people snapped because they couldn't clap because that would make too much. Yeah. And so it just got it got cool. But that also that was it really know Trump's to begin with you were a lot of them. Then by saying the dancing stops. That means that a lot of them were like we're out of work from their gig in the big band. Yeah. That's right. And and then they were all, you know, they were responding to the war, and to what have you know, the end of the war of the certainly Jackson Pollock's paintings are like right being in the middle of an atom bomb. Explosion is all the molecules fly apart. Right. They were they were coda firing these things and trying to find some order in all of this all of this lunacy. Yeah. And it was also sort of at that time where the the the blues really sort of move. Northward? That's right. And started to expand instrumentally. That's right. So then you, you know, you have that whole sort of the intensity and depth of the Chicago blue scene starting to happen. But alongside of this pre bebop, no drum jazz business and basements. Yeah. That's right. That's right. It was all happening, and where's country music at that time..
