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’ here at WPKN - I like that! 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 improvised music. We tend to have nostalgic and lazy ears that most oftentimes gravitate to the familiar. Who are the new Bird, Coltrane and Miles that brings the ferocious need to explore and expand the vocabulary of ‘jazz’? I hope we discover these new ‘masters’ together and avoid the convenient ‘pigeonhole that so much music is suffocated in.

MOM has a regular slot in the ‘PKN schedule on the 2nd & 4th Monday of each month from 9am -12noon and the 2nd & 4th Thursday from 1 - 4pm. as well as many fill-in spots.

Show: Joseph Celli: My Other Music (MOM)

 Host Joseph Celli presents a program of music from Japan/Okinawa, Korea, China, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Tibet, Mongolia & elsewhere in Asia. Included with the traditional court, folk & religious music are occasional interviews with Asian musicians, World Premieres, and historical context about the music, musicians & instruments.

Celli said, “Unfortunately, we tend to think of Asia as being homogeneous but it actually has more musical diversity and individuality than most places in the world.” Programs range from the overtone singing of Tuva to the ecstatic Gamelan of Indonesia, and the elegant court music of Korea, Japan & Cambodia. Information about upcoming concerts of Asian music, exhibitions & an occasional undiscovered spicy restaurant are all part of the fun.
