On NPR's Morning Edition, this morning: "The Seasonal Sounds Of The Singing Saw", about "an album called The Singing Saw at Christmastime by Julian Koster". Short item on the air, more music available online. :-)

I played it and discovered that my deaf 17-year-old cat isn't completely deaf. She could hear it!

Sorry! I have come to enjoy pipe organ, I can tolerate saxophone (within limits), but I find musical saw simply unbearable.

Right up there with the bowed psaltery, in fact.

Why y'all are listening to that when you could be listening to yodeling is beyond me. :-)

Leeneia,
Yours is the unkindest cut of all!

You male saw players, be careful playing the instrument with the saw's teeth facing your jewels. And remember, also, there is a vas deferens between playing carefully and playing well!

Any of you heard bill\sables playing his saw? I was much impressed when we finally persuaded him to.

Have any of ya heard any of the album "A Toolbox Christmas", with assorted power tools? There are some ideas that come off much better than one would expect. In my opinion, this wasn't one of those ideas...

Cool Beans, I can identify. This piece was playing when my clock radio went off at a little before 6:30 yesterday morning. My first awareness--even before registering what it was I was hearing--was of three cats simultaneously levitating off the bed and hightailing it out of the room. As music reviews go, it was pretty definitive! Art, I did think of you when I actually woke up enough to hear the story. You're the first musical saw player I ever heard, way back in the day.

Musical Saws, and their players,are fine,as long as they DON'T come into a "session",plonk themselves down,and then proceed to just about RUIN everything.......Sidmouth (and other festival) -goers will know of whom I speak.

Kathy,
Thanks for remembering! I guess I was a cut-up in those days. You said, "Art, you were the first saw player I ever heard."

At the risk of being redundant, you saw me play a saw too.

Art,
Tee hee. I've seen (and heard!) you play lots of unusual instruments in your time. I vividly remember an occasion in our dining room in Takoma Park when Cathy Fink presented you with the infamous "panjo" (a one-of-a-kind instrument consisting of a bedpan resonater tricked out with a banjo neck). That inaugural house can-cert (or was it a house potty?) was a memorable one. Is there a photo in your online archives? How 'bout one of you sawing your saw? At the risk of thread creep, there are probably people here who'd enjoy seeing those!
Cheers, Kathy
