My Other Music (MOM)

Joseph Celli: My Other Music (MOM)
Pigeonhole: typically an overly restrictive nitch, to categorize, classify, compartmentalize, characterize, label, brand, tag, designate, grade, codify, sort, rank, or rate.
Since producing & hosting Soundprint: Asia I’ve become pigeonholed as ‘The Asian Guy‘ at WPKN – I like it, but, I also like My Other Music (MOM); a wide-ranging interest in Western classical, R&B, experimental & avant-garde, Cajun, Latin, and the whole history of American Jazz. YES! The whole history from early 20th century to new explorations in improvisation.
I have a strong belief in the never ending and ambitious pursuit of innovation in music. I think people tend to have nostalgic and lazy ears that oftentimes gravitate to the familiar and the known. I want to know: who are the new Birds, Coltranes and Miles that bring a ferocious need to explore and expand the vocabulary of music? I want to discover these new ‘masters’ together avoiding the convenient ‘pigeonhole’ that suffocates the creative. So, if you have ‘BIG Ears’ and relish an acoustic and emotional leap from Zorn, to Cage, to Zydeco, and much more; then become a friend at: Joseph Celli: My Other Music (MOM) It’s a good way to be kept in the loop about upcoming Celli programs.
