Listen w/ Henson

Fortuitous ebay score: a Jim Henson novelty 45 from 1960 - "Tick-Tock Sick" & "The Countryside"; 2 sides of crypto-beatnik wordjazz riffage w/ amply swinging utility percussion in back... DL the audio here.

Jim Henson retrospective happens at the ACMI in September: encompassing most aspects of his work, from early anarchic commercials (see below), experimental routines with electronic music pioneers Raymond Scott & Walter Sear, thru to more familiar muppets movies & tv shows. Program details after that link...
