Loads of Weather report at the moment, I just love the amalgamation of african/latin/jazz styles that the late great Joe Zawinul and his superb musicians played.
'Nubian Sundance' sounds as if it were recorded yesterday!, and of course 'Birdland', 'Teen Town', 'Black Market' et al...timeless stuff.

I?ve been in a Sergio Mendes mood the last few days myself, repeatedly playing a couple faves... the first one has our own Jimmy J on Bass!!
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toygcPCgsHw (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toygcPCgsHw)
 
Then the second, a wonderful Dori Caymmi tune that Mender did in the album following Confetti... I think this is Abe Laboriel on bass, Am I the only one to think it has a certain Earth, Wind & Fire-ish feel at the chorus?
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIL0i1tTtxU (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIL0i1tTtxU)
 
(The sound here is not that good... try get the cd copy or any other source, it simply does no justice to the tune, arrangement and mixing!)
 
And I?ve been giving (as I have to do some boring, tiring desktop work the last couple days) several spins to Brazilian Ed Motta?s Piquenique album from 2009. I love this man?s groove!.

Keavin - Wired
That is a true gem; I'll have to dust it off - Head For Backstage Pass has one durn funky bass line. (bow down to Wilbur Bascomb!)
 
Got a hold of Dan Wilson's latest (Love Without Fear) here at work - rather mellow but certainly his best yet.

Weather Report and pre-electronic Miles...though I'm more likely to be listening to the early stuff from the former than Terry (e.g.,I Sing the Body Electric, Sweetnighter). At the other end of the spectrum I've been listening a lot lately to a semi-local group, Trampled by Turtles, from Duluth Minnesota (where we received 10-19 inches of snow today).

It's out in the car or I'd look)(forget the title, too; songs you'd recognize done on various off-the-wall acoustic instruments).

Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: edwin on April 19, 2014, 07:35:43 PM
The ecstatic giggles of Xander, who is now 22 1/2 months old. And loooooooves music.
 
The last album I listened to was an experimental Nels Cline trio record from his pre-Wilco days.  
I've also been listening to a lot of baroque music, usually from Venice Classic Radio online.
But most of the time when I'm listening to music these days is in the context of transferring a huge backlog of DAT tapes of old bands, etc., to hard drives. It's interesting to go back to stuff you did 20+ years ago. I'm thinking of compiling my soundscapes and putting an album up on iTunes. I'll probably sell ones of copies!
 
Now that you mention it, Tony, I should check out the newer Meat Puppets. It's been on my list of things to do.
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?

Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: hammer on April 19, 2014, 10:08:49 PM
Edwin.  
 
With Xander approaching two years of age you're heading toward Raffi territory (if you're not there already) and a load of other child oriented singers like him. Resist going in that direction if at all possible. If you fail to heed my warning you'll soon be finding out that it's almost impossible to get the simple rhythms and lyrics to songs like Baby Beluga out of your head even if your in the middle of the jam section of Dark Star
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: edwin on April 20, 2014, 03:25:10 AM
Uh oh. I've never heard of Raffi. I will be wary. Xander does have an affinity to for a bunch of songs on Youtube, especially if there is a school bus involved. But, we limit him to one 2 or 3 minute video a day, so it's not too pervasive, despite how nauseating some of the singers are.   I will say that Xander sings a lot. I keep trying to record him, but he gets distracted by me and stops. He makes up songs endlessly. And he can sing all the way through the ABCs! . A few days ago, we had a bass and conga drum jam. So, lots of excellent music going on here these days. The cheesy stuff is held to a minimum.  Oh yes, he also discovered the piano a couple of weeks ago when we were visiting my parents. He and his cousins started all playing at once. One cousin just played one note over and over and the other cousin banged out some random stuff and got bored, but Xander really started to explore the melodic possibilities. You could hear him really listening to what he was playing and experimenting with it. I was pretty amazed, given that his cousins are 5 and 7 years older than him.

You might want to check out Burl Ives' old records, if you can find them.  Great, intelligent, kid music without the unhealthy dose of sugar common to more modern kid music (i.e. Raffi, Barney, etc.).

Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: edwin on April 20, 2014, 10:41:40 AM
Great idea, Bill! Also Pete Seeger, Arlo (it might be time for the Motorcycle Song) and others have excellent kids tunes. A friend of mine made an album about 15 years ago called Kids Are Funky People, Too, which I should dig out.
 
I love My Life In The Bush of Ghosts! Hugely influential to me in the 80s.
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: lbpesq on April 20, 2014, 04:19:46 PM
Also The Baby Tree from Blows Against The Empire, one of my favorite sleeper albums.  (The Burl Ives tunes are some of my favorites I listened to as a little kid.  I still remember a lot of them more than 50 years later. (OMG, did I actually just write that!!??)

Pulling out my old vinyl albums and I came across stuff I have not listened to in say 20 years.
I am on a Brand X fest at the moment. I love the track  Noddy Goes to Sweden written by Percy Jones off the Do They Hurt album.
Percy would have to be my all time favourite fretless bass player.

I love Brand X! PJ is indeed amazing. And, he uses a Wal bass, if I'm not mistake, with a number of similarities to Alembic.
 
I remember when they came to The Paradise in Boston and I blew it off, thinking it would be some lame punk band. Silly me.

Is there no love around for Brand X?s Product album? It was my first and I loved it!
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: slawie on April 23, 2014, 08:51:51 PM
I own the albums;
Unorthodox Behaviour
Moroccan Roll
Livestock
Product (I love it also Juan)and  
Do they Hurt
 
John Giblin plays upright bass on the Product album and also Do they Hurt. Another superb bassist.
These albums were available as import albums in Australia so the cost was high and availability was low.  
Such are the burdens of living in the colonies during the 70's and early 80's.
 
The thing that surprises me the most about the band is Phil Collins on drums.  
I earned a new respect for players that do the mainstream thing and also expulse expressive talents  
with their chosen instruments in a free creative environ.
 
I think I may drop the needle on an old Alphonso Johnson - Spellbound album I found. Iv'e got to get me a dose of Chapman Stick.
 
Hey I just realised the Phil Collins (Genesis) and Alphonso Johnson (Weather Report) dotted line connection.
 
Edwin what a pity you missed that gig, I would have given my eye teeth to see them performing live!
 
Wolf, I am glad you liked the track. Jazz fusion in the 70's was and still is a large influence on my playing.  
My mind says yes but my fingers have a different agenda.

Another Brand X lover here. 'April' from product was one of the first fretless solos I learnt. very tasteful. Giblin went on to provide some of the best bass lines on Kate Bush's work.

Alpine Valley Aug. 8, 1982 (https://archive.org/details/gd1982-08-08.unk.barrick.333.sbefail.shnf), with Zakir Hussien sitting in starting with Drumz & John Cipollina joining in from Not Fade Away.
After awhile in the parking lot, my buddy Bob & I wandered back to the car all aglow just as another car pulled in beside us and out climbed....well, ~5'5, slim but curvy, golden-brown hair to her waist, nothing under the plain white t-shirt, jeans cut off at the crotch then split up the seams to the waistband, fringed suede knee-high moccosin boots, and, on her right hand, one purple satin over-the-elbow glove with the fingers cut out.
We melted.
We still toast her to this day.
 
To the Purple Glove!

I like that Brown/Osborne version, especially that they didn't lockstep the harmonies, choosing their own phrasing even when singing together.  It somehow added, on a different level, to the story being told.

Believe me, anything called 'The Cowboy Song' went over big in Texas, and Lizzy was riding high at the time.

Don't ever tell me that The Black Crowes didn't wear out a LOT of Humble Pie records when they were kids.  Marriott squalling as usual, and amazingly, Stephen Stills on Hammond and keys.
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZqWX-E7nOM (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZqWX-E7nOM)
 
Was always nuts for The Faces and 'Gasoline Alley'-era Rod.  Ronnie was on the verge of guitar-hero-dom, then hooked up with Keith and Mick . . . . oh well.  God Rest Ronnie and Ian McLagan.
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hi3Xu5c3rro (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hi3Xu5c3rro)
 
I was always nuts for Savoy's 'Street Corner Talkin' album.  It always sounded like the best bar band, and it's very honest in the instrumentation and production of what little blues-ish bands sounded like back then.  This was there take on H-D-H's 'Can't Get Next to You', a successful remake of the Temps' hit reduced to a chugging little shuffle, with a nice change of pace in the middle instrumentals.
 
My Back Pages, ah but I was so much older then . . . I'm older than that now !

With the talk of pit orchestras in another thread I felt compelled to relive a part of my only pit experience (thus far).  Unfortunately there is no decent recording from the 4 performances that were put on by the Soulstice Theater Group; below are the 'real' versions.
 
From Chess the Musical.
The American and Florence/ Nobody's Side
 
Odd time signatures, killer bass line mirroring the vocalist in the beginning, such a blast.
https://youtube.com/watch?v=W0yQQMwnkhY (https://youtube.com/watch?v=W0yQQMwnkhY)
 
Then this song, Pity The Child, which every night the vocalist would miss a line . . . but not always the same one.  The 'orchestra' (2 keys, 1 sax, flute, clarinetist a drummer and yours truly on the trusty Distillate) had no choice but to jump ahead and land together in the same spot as the vocalist talk about an exhilarating rush! We nailed it every time.  Since we didn't have a guitarist we extended the end and were allowed to improvise with the sax player shredding and me pumping him along.
https://youtube.com/watch?v=EEhojI1ghmQ (https://youtube.com/watch?v=EEhojI1ghmQ)
 
And of course the most famous song from this musical; One Night in Bangkok, which allowed for some funky bass playing. Spankin' the plank on this one :-D

Thanks for the reminder of the Chess soundtrack Paul... I actually have that whole thing on *cassette tapes* that are nearly worn out from non-stop play during my high school years. (dang, how I miss the 80's)
 
The fledgling alt. country band I've been recording with recently, is putting together a set of mostly originals with some covers mixed in. One of the tunes they cover well is Otis Redding's Hard To Handle, as played by The Black Crowes. I'm trying to borrow a few textures from Phil's lines here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hqsgr3rPvSQ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hqsgr3rPvSQ)

quote:Otis Redding's Hard To Handle, as played by The Black Crowes.
 
With all due respect (+) when I read that I sprayed coffee on my monitor and made a sound like a water buffalo coughing up a hairball.
 
That's like doing Michael Bolton's version of When a Man Does A Woma ... well, Michael Bolton doing anything, and I think you know what I'm sayin' here.
 
It's an Otis Redding song, pops. Time for a refresher:
 
https://youtu.be/1ZxN9iQM7OY (https://youtu.be/1ZxN9iQM7OY)
 
Hear how Otis relaxes into the groove, especially when he sings that line at the top of the chorus; Pretty little thing, let me light your candle 'cause mama I'm sure hard to handle, now, gets around, with a gentle lag - he takes the time - not rushed or stuttered.  
 
That's mastery. The whole pocket is back on the beat, rockin' (Like James Brown's Night Train, the Live At The Apollo version where if the bass and drums lagged any more, the whole thing would derail in flames. That's what gives it that chugging uphill feel.)
 
Otis had a message, oh yeah. It's no secret what the song is about, and it wasn't to watch drunk teenagers spasming frantically on a dance floor. I like to think that Otis sang it to one particular person. That's the secret of that song. Listen to again. Think it worked?
 
Also, in 1967 Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass were all the rage (did you know that was the Wrecking Crew (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wrecking_Crew_(music)) with Carol Kaye on bass?), Johnny Cash had a mariachi horn section on Ring of Fire and Chet was in Nashville as head of RCA, slathering strings and horns on everything from Elvis to Jim Reeves and Johnny Horton.  
 
So Otis can be forgiven the horns, I think, but I prefer the Black Crowes' intro and vamp back to the head (know what I mean?) their version of that line is pretty iconic, so now's your chance. Best of both worlds.
 
Nothing against the Black Crowes, really. It's me, I admit it. But their version is a stalwart of the wedding set list from Hell, along with Wonderful Tonight, Old Time Rock 'n Roll, anything by anyone even named Michael, Bolton Petty or Thorogood and of course; You Are So Beautiful (w/real tears + rose=$50) etc. ad nauseum matrimonii ... I've just been witness to its torture too many times, and in this case there's one of the greatest, coolest appeals to pure rut ever performed to resurrect.
 
Teach them the truth, brother. Show them the way. Do it for Otis.

Good stuff!  I was at that one too, we snuck in through a bathroom window, then duct taped the antenna of our boom box to a steel girder and recorded a crystal clear radio broadcast of the show as we watched it.  Fun times and great version of that tune!  Grateful Dead, how'd you guys get a name like that anyway? - Etta James
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: ed_zeppelin on March 12, 2016, 01:25:47 PM
Wow, what a treasure! Thanks! I love it when Jerry was doing those 9ths on the backbeat, way up where Chet called the dusty end of the fingerboard, like something from a funk band (Tower of Power, come to think of it). God, he was so generous and humble. You could feel him settle into that groove like a comfortable sofa, and he left so much room for everybody to have fun.
 
Hell, by 2:30 it had become yet another unique version entirely (it snapped back with the horns at the end). Phil sounds really solid and muscular, even on these crappy iPad speaker (can't find my ear buds, at least my neighbors know I'm groovy).
 
I'll bet that was a killer show, you lucky dawg.

The girl that plays banjo in our neo-oldtyme band New River Bound is shopping for a new banjo... or rather, thinking of commissioning a new build based on a very old design. (sound familiar?) =)
 
Anyway, she very much likes this fella's work... this first demo is a strange one - a half-fretless banjo, meaning it's fretless down to the 7-1/2th fret, (?! yeah, you read that right) and fretted from there on to the end.  
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7V4TRiGsjfI (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7V4TRiGsjfI)
 
And this is a similar model, but with all the frets. Jess really likes this tone, and it suits her playing style well. I like the simple retro design, especially the brass-plated frailing scoop at the end of the fingerboard.

What's the purpose of the scoop plate?  Other banjos appear to have more frets there.
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: edwardofhuncote on March 18, 2016, 06:08:53 PM
The plate over the scoop I guess is mostly just decorative, although it could be functional in the same way as a pickguard. These banjos are made specifically for the melodic frailed-style players, many of which play right over the end of the fingerboard (very much like we do with our basses to get a more mellow tone) so the makers will offer a scooped fingerboard to facilitate that style. I'm guessing they found an interesting way to dress it up.  
 
The half-fretless is an idea I had considered have Alembic try on my bass.
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: pauldo on March 19, 2016, 04:05:04 AM

Supergroup indeed. ^ Is that a JayDee bass Mark King is playing? I just assumed it was an Alembic until the screen froze for a second, and nope, definitely not.  
 
I really enjoyed what these folks were doing about ten years ago. Robert Johnson and J.S. Bach would both have loved this band.

ps @ pauldo - regarding the half-fretless bass, I had in mind for a similar brass plate to go from the nut down to the 12-1/2 fret, and be fretted from there to the 24th fret. It would work, but would be unspeakably heavy since that brass fingerboard overlay would have to be as thick as a fret is tall. Think of it as literally a single continuous fret. (like Ms. W. said about McVie's stainless steel fingerboard) See, I'm completely comfortable playing fretless bass until I get in to the 2nd octave. (where I really ain't got any business anyway) At that point, having some frets there to clean up my questionable intonation seemed like a good idea, but the more I thought about it, the more it seemed like training wheels. I just decided instead to go with a fretless ebony board with sidelines, and practice harder. =)

What grabs me about this musical collaboration is the bassist, Viktor Krauss -the name isn't a coincidence- he's Alison Krauss' brother. Anyway, I've studied and tried to emulate his tone since the first time I ever heard him play. (like probably 25 years or so)

Since the first time I sat around a dorm room baked playing 10 Desert Island Albums over 40 yeras ago, this one has been on the list; one of the greatest albums of all time, with wonderful songs & mind-blowing production - especially the last 3 tracks on the CD (which I will always think of as Side 2) - The Party, the title track, and Crucifixion.  Sheer genius!  
And some of the best liner notes ever, as well.

One of the bands I play in covers this hit from 1980, and I always look forward to this one in the set, especially the little ascending line at the end of each verse that sets up the chorus. I LIVE for that kinda' stuff.

April 10th, 1990... Fleetwood Mac releases Behind The Mask, their first full-length album since the departure of Lindsey Buckingham. (although curiously, he played guitar on the title cut) Replacing Buck, are guitarists Rick Vito and Billy Burnette. One with deep blues/rock cred, the other a vocalist and front-man personality.  
 
Although the album wasn't that well received, the project as a whole is a good example of what a band does on the rebound and rebuild. Unfortunately the new niche' they were looking for was already occupied by the fringes of 1990's pop-country, but I always thought this was a fun tune to play on bass. Listen how John still plays off Christine's left hand, even if it is on an accordion. =)

Then there was this single that should have been on the album... same personnel.

Gregory, I'm glad you liked it, I love that kind of stuff.  I saw Rufus Reid last week and he mentioned Ray Brown and how he was a big influence on his playing.  Ray Brown had a little trill/hammer thing he does up in the first position, I noticed Rufus Reid does the exact same thing in that first position, interesting to see the adaptation of that specific technique.
 
Dave, that Crimson stuff was great!  I used to listen to them a lot.  I love the way they layer sounds and instruments, they use dynamics to build to high points and fall back off again as transition points in the music.  I'll have to dig out my old records (yes vinyl!).
 
Brian,  I love In a Silent Way, one of my favorite Miles tunes!  I really like the bass groove in the middle with keyboards following and builds, then suddenly drops off, then quietly starts up and builds again.  That's great stuff!

I was very excited when Fleetwood Mac's Say You Will came out, since it was the almost-Rumours-era band's first recorded effort together since Tango 15 years earlier. Although she declined to tour with them, or rejoin in any capacity, Christine McVie played and sang on a couple cuts. Hard to believe that was 13 years ago today. April must have been a favorite month or something... anyway, I really enjoyed hearing them together again on these two.

Chick Corea (still one of the best at 74) and Bella Fleck live in Minneapolis. Heard music that  spanned the ages, including pieces from an 18th century Italian and a 20th century French composer (Dutilleux) to straight bluegrass to jazz with a banjo.  Definitely an amazing experience.

I had to learn the Van Morrison tune Into The Mystic from 1970 Moondance for a wedding reception gig this-coming weekend.  
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEvsDuJYEnI (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEvsDuJYEnI)  
 
I'm not familiar with the bassist John Klingberg (sp?) but I have thoroughly enjoyed figuring out what he played on this track. It's got a distinctly Motown feel to it. As an aside, I dialed the magical Alembic low-pass filter down just a little more than usual, and panned to favor the neck pickup... the flatwounds took care of the rest. =)

In that thread, one person wrote that the first time he played Moondance, it was called at a gig.  He thought it would be easy, but he butchered it.
 
I have the vague recollection that the same thing happened to me; it was called at a party I was playing, I thought it would be easy, but when I started playing, I suddenly realized it wasn't as easy as I thought.
 
I have another vague recollection that later I sat down and learned it.  But that's been decades ago, and I doubt I remember it now.

Generally I am drawn to a more bass-centric type bands (not hating on Tim Lefebvre at all) but this band, live, recorded whatever, really strikes a chord in me.  Every member cooperatively brings a bit of themselves that results in music that really blooms.

Seems here lately, a lot of our musical heroes have been departing at an accelerated pace... knowing that it's just a normal part of the experience here doesn't make it easier.  
 
I was playing a gig Saturday night, and while on break this tune came across the mp3 random play. The title made me think of my buddy Tony, who died very suddenly last Summer. In addition to being a musical hero, he was a very close friend, a brother really. I sent a quick text to his wife and kids and another close friend while the thought was fresh in my mind.

Downloaded an archived show from last Sunday on WMSE (http://www.wmse.org/ (http://www.wmse.org/)) to listen to at work.
 
WMSE may be the greatest radio station ever, (2nd to Bass On The Broadband) they have an eclectic  schedule covering all genres of music. And they play stuff you have never heard AND spin a whole lot of vinyl!
 
The show that I downloaded (free downloads in their archive section) was The Modern Chamber, a classical show with a bit of a spin, playing the likes of Edgar Varese, Giacinto Scelsi and others.
 
 At the end of the show the DJ played Ralph Vaughan Williams - The Lark Ascending.  We all know the power of music, this song transcended into my soul and blew me open. I am trying to find out who performed the version they played, there is a bunch on YouTube, the one I heard was just violin and piano. The tone of the violin was delicious.
 
This is close to that version; tune in, close your eyes and soar!

Wayne Shorter.
 
I haven't been listening to much of anything recently for a number of reasons; but yesterday I found myself listening to Wayne Shorter, from different periods, from the Miles Davis Quintet up to Shorter's current quartet.  It was an education; I found that I had a deeper appreciation of, a deeper knowing of, music; just from listing to him.  I've long thought that version of the Miles Davis Quintet was amazing, something special in the history of music; but yesterday was different.  It was a deeper level of understanding, of knowing, of connecting.  So that's what I've been listing to; Wayne Shorter.  And I am grateful for the experience.

When I discovered Animal Logic?s first release, back in its day, I thought it was one of the best made pop albums ever, not by the pop music standards, but my own, personal music standards. Songwriting, sense of melody, good playing, musicianship, the sound... it spun for hours and hours on my CD player back then, and I became a fan. Years later I got their second release, and loved it as well (although not as much as the first one, I have to admit). I STILL think that album is really wonderful,

It was quite possibly the best concert I've ever seen/heard/experienced: Towner, Burton, and Corea at their best. To this day, I honestly have no idea as to how I ended up back in my dorm room the next morning. The only thing that came close was a concert at which I worked at Dillon Stadium in Hartford CT which included the Allman Brothers and Santana as opening acts for the Dead. My job...to walk around the concert grounds with a broom stick perched atop of which was a red colored pie plate that when raised indicated that I had found someone having a bad trip who needed help. I ran in to enough individuals in this category that I later decided to major in psychology and have been working in the human service profession for 30 plus years.

To answer Glynn's question: no, there is no limit to the number of posts. There is an automatic archiving feature that kicks in after an given number of posts on a thread, but you can click on the archive at the top of the thread to find the older posts.
 
Personally, I find that one can never tell that a subject has been truly exhausted until it already has. And hopefully I will have shut up by then.
 
So what music have I been listening to? Was planning to put on a CD of Bach's St Matthew's Passion for Easter, but opted for Mendelssohn's string quintets. Had a most excellent mental musical workout during a Charles Ives marathon in Amsterdam a few weeks back. Played a CD by (http://www.paulvankemenade.com/cd/close-enough/ target=_blank) Paul van Kemenade ft. Ernst Reijseger (and reminisced about the old amateur workshop led by Paul where we often did Ballad of The Fallen). Started name-dropping . . .

I was just watching the fifth episode of the new Cosmos series; and as it nears the end of the episode, it quotes Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, which I've always thought was an amazing piece of music.
 
So, thinking that it would be a cool tune for somebody like Dream Theater, I was delighted to find a nice live version from Liquid Tension Experiment (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jq9I9Zyy7_k).

Based on recommendations above, I got hold of a copy of Animal Logic 2 which I'm enjoying. I guess this must have come out around the same time as Stanley's 'Find out' Album as his playing has a similar feel.
 
And tenuously carrying on Dave's Dream Theater listening, I've been listening to the Winery Dogs album a lot this week. Messrs portnoy, Kotzen and Sheehan giving it large - love Billy's playing.

Not to highjack this thread but I thought that I wood offer some wood trivia since Alembic Inc. is The place of SWELL wood !  
 
There really is a type of wood called   Iron Wood  . I have some left over scraps from someone that had a back yard deck built from it. It is the heaviest wood that I have ever handled . It is also very gummy when you try to cut it and is hard on saw blades .

Pete Special passed away May 11, so I've been going back to his Mozart Street and Big Twist & the Mellow Fellows' Playing For Keeps (the latter came out in '84, while I was their stage manager).  Despite Twist's name on the logo, it was Pete's band.
Also Pure Prairie League's first & second albums, and Roomfull of Blues Hot Little Mama (my copy has the black-teddy-and-fan cover, not the cowgirl-blowing-smoke-away version).

Inspired by a different thread - I listened to Marcus Miller - Silver Rain.
 
On this disc he does a version of Frankenstein that is killer - and oddly enough associated with another thread . . .  he plays it a little slower than the original but it grooves like the Grand Canyon!

Paul, it is the album which just came out a month or so ago. Daltrey is in great form, but singing Wilko's songs allows him a different style than Who songs. As a long-time fan of Dr. Feelgood (and Wilko Johnson), it was initially a bit weird to hear Daltrey's voice on well known material instead of Lee Brilleaux, but within a few songs I was hooked. Of course, there is Wilko. It is in heavy rotation.
 
And yes, Gatton was amazing. The session with Robert Gordon is also a great album, especially for an unplanned recording.

Nancy does a great second vocal (Maggie Bell's lines from the original), Ann is in typically fine voice, and their FOH guy is really on his toes catching the echo'd single repeats on Ann's vocals towards the end.  If they'd done 'Going to California' right after this, it would have been beyond fine . . . .

Peter that's a good one.
 
Eventually, non-stop K.G. just became too much.  That was ALL that they were playing. Four plus hours of non-stop Kenny G. Honestly, I wasn't sure whether they were playing different songs that all sounded alike or just one song over and over and over.
 
Luckily, I was able to convince my wife who was with me that my putting in my earphones and dialing in some real music on my iPod was not an attempt to dial her out, but rather necessary for my sanity. Either that or she just got tired of me complaining.

I had a similar experience calling ADT security systems - they had me on hold and looped the same crappy song over and over and over and over . . . I had to hold the phone away from my ear. When someone finally picked up, after taking care of business, they asked if there was anything else that I needed - I told them that it was cruel and unusual punishment to subject their customers to that music.

Non stop Kenny G, and then they wonder why bad things happen at airports...I can see myself resorting to cannibalism in that situation, just so the screams could drown him out...that Max Webster/Rush collaboration was cool; I've never heard it before...only once have I been on permahold and not minded;the lineup was things like Roy Orbison, Everly brothers, Patsy Cline...I actually thanked the person when I was done for their hold music choices; it should be completely evident that if you gotta put people on hold, play GOOD music and they won't try to tear your head off through the phone when they are finally attended to...Tony...Oh, last night was the new solo King Buzzo (Melvins) album 'this machine kills artists'...acoustic Melvins essentially...

Not sure whether it's the incoming Summer Solstice or the Honey Moon, but I got the call from Hoops McCann, so my annual Donald and Walter mania has begun, it's Perfection and Grace, the smile on my face.  I AM going back to My Old School !
 
-Citizen Steely Dan (the compilation)
-Alive in America (with 'Josie' now transposed down to D, a high fastball 'Bhoddisatva' with Dennis Chambers on drums, a sublime live 'Aja')
-Two Against Nature
-Everything Must Go
 
Donald's . . . .
 
-The NightFly (my favorite cover of 'Ruby,Ruby' with Michael Omartian's piano solo and Abraham Laboriel's bass lines)
-Kamakirriad  
-The New York Rock and Soul Review (with my favorite versions of 'Pretzel Logic' and 'Chain Lightning':  who knew they were nuts for The Rascals?)
-Sunken Condos
 
and Walter's . . .  
 
-Eleven Tracks of Whack (it's whacked, alright . . .)
-Circus Money  
 
I'm constantly dumbfounded at how well Walter covers bass and guitar, and even more dumbfounded no one ever mentions this.  See if YOU can play both of his parts on 'Gaslighting Abbie' !
 
THIS oughta keep me busy for a while.  Guess I'll take my big black cow and get outa here . . .

Thanks guys.
 
The passing of my Dad was pretty much expected as he was 85 and in poor health.  As these things go, it probably went as well as it could. I got to spend 4 days with him awake and alert after he was rushed to the hospital in what we were told was a comatose state from which he it unlikely he would awake. He got to see all of his kids, grand kids, and his great granddaughter (my first grandchild) and speak with them while he was still with us. His passing away peacefully while he slept was the easy part. Its the family squabbling over what he left that makes me glad I'm here in Minnesota while most of the family is in Connecticut.

It's good you got a chance to spend time with him at the end...I'm glad I got to with my Mom at the end; I think she was relieved that it was all over. Life had been a mess for her for a long time so I think in a weird way she was kinda glad...Alas for me there was a bunch of stuff I wanted to get the truth on (she wasn't very good at that) that I just didn't ask about to keep her peace, so now I'll never know...oh well...Tony.

Jack Bruce: Silver Rails & Ratdog: Live at the Northrup 6/13/14
 
Jacks voice has gotten a bit thin but the guy can still play.
 
Listening to the recorded version of the Bob Weir and Ratdog Concert I saw last Friday evening at the newly renovated  Northrup Auditorium in Minneapolis, MN. First time a recorded version of a concert has had a lot better sound than I heard live. Live, the bass was mush and the vocals at time unable to be understood. On the recording,  you can actually hear individual notes.

For me, the great thing about the 4th of July is getting to hear all that marching music, which somehow I have a soft spot for.
 
These guys are really, really good at it:

Why am I surprised that the United States Marine Band has it's own YouTube channel?  Do they get royalties from Hohner?  Does anyone play a Marine Band harp in the USMB?
 
What a gig !  Great outfits, you get paid, play really swank venues, eat good, paid rehearsals (!).  I wonder if you go through basic first and get qualified with an M16 . . . and the haircuts go in and out of style. Plus, they don't have to sub-contract out for a pyro company should they want to do the '1812 Overture'  ! !

Yeah, Joey - the Marine Band at 8th & I (USMC HQ in DC) has always had some pretty fair players; my dad was a jug, as were 2 of his 5 brothers, (one a 25-year, 3-war man), so when they came around once when I was a teenager (early '70s, Viet Nam going & all), we all went - period, no argument brooked.  I gotta say, as an anti-militarist hippie, I was fully set on not enjoying it - but DAMN those boys could play!!!!  And yeah, the red jackets (oops - sorry to any gyrenes out there - blouses) & white pants looked badass.
A high school friend of mine - euphonium player - considered that as one of the few kick-ass euphonium gigs going, he should sign up. Then he talked to the recruiter.  You enlist with a MOS of combat infantry, and work your way through various unit bands to (maybe) a chance to audition for The President's Own.   In the meantime, you're a rifleman, with no guarantee of ever tooting note one.
He let that one slide.  
And I think you mean The haircuts go in and out of fashion.  One is in or out of fashion, but has or does not have style - and the 2 have little if any relationship.

Bought a bunch of CDs at a garage sale a little while ago; took them out of their cases & stuck them into my wallets (do most of my listening while mobile these days).  Waiting to meet a fare at a train that was delayed, flipped through & saw 2 I'd forgotten; no writing, just some very familiar-looking skulls. Stuck in disc 1, and thought What?  Who? Why haven't I listened to this? Who?  Some of the players & songs were immediately recognizable (Bobby, Phil, Mickey, Bruce) some players less so & some songs unheard.  Did some searching today; it's The Strange Remain, a live album by the '98 version of the Other Ones (only album thus far by them or The Dead).  Driving again tomorrow; disc 2 first thing!

Hmmm....old school Aerosmith. Some of the best blues rock ever! One of my top 10 concerts (best), and one of my top crappiest. Back in the early 90s those guys would wheel into my store in their matching Maseratis. Brad would say Hey Ken, we need something to make us healthy. I would laugh and say, I'll give you guys some wheat grass shots but you got to lay off the drugs! Seasons of Wither is one of my favs.

Too bad Phil's shoulders( I think) are so done he can't play drums anymore; he was a wicked drummer and I'm glad I got to see him with Genesis once...it was the poppier years at the end but he still didi some cool drum-offs with Dennis Chambers; kinda the big time equivalent of the current Melvins lineup- dual drummers can be awesome...Tony

I actually never knew Phil could play the drums so well until I listened to some of his older stuff! Being from Ann Arbor originally, I was an Alice Cooper freak back in the day. Hey Mica, Ill take some Galactic any time. I use to have every Jethro Tull Album and still have some on disk. Great bass lines and those fairies dancing in the woods are hard to ignore.

Wow! that is a monster player!
 
A few observations...I love the bass that dude's playing; such a cool finish...the clothes are BAD (and this coming from a guy who owns and wears vintage shirts with wide collars...
 
I also spotted a nice Traynor Custom Special behind the keyboardist; those are seriously cool amps-and loud-the only tube amp at the time to compete with a SVT; it used a weird tube usually used in tv's...most today have had 6550's put in them(a direct replacement) and they're still loud as hell; a friend of mine has one and it'll peak out at 170 watts or so, scary loud...the coolest things about those amps though is a few things; two lights, red and green so you could tell if the amp was on standby or ready to go, they were built like old Fenders with eyelet board but with better transformers, and the era seen in the video had a cool feature where the top of the box was held on with four bolts; remove them and the top came off and you could service the amp without removing the chassis...I have no idea why no one else has done this, it is genius...Tony.

So I recently just got a turn table back in my life. I bought a vintage receiver off ebay. I lost my record collection many years ago in a bit of a sad story. My son and I hit a few used record shops and got some new old records. I came home and put one on and my son said, Dad I haven't seen you smile like that in a while. Man I miss that sound and a time when listening to music was an event not just background music. So yesterday I decided to turn my kids on to Frank Zappa and put Apostrophe on. My daughter ask me what the lyric the crux of the biscuit, is the apostrophe means. That led to the deepest conversation we have had about life since she was born. She is twelve. That is the power of music and the joy of parenthood! Thanks Frank! Oh yea, I blew the face off of my 23 year old drummer the next night when I made him listen to the drums in Saint Alfonzo's Pancake Breakfast.

Ken, that is awesome!
I am actually blessed with two functional turntables and a third in a box.
Even more awesome that your kids got to hear the absolutely epic Apostrophe. Jack Bruce's distortion on the title track is one that I lust for. Seriously lust for, I always wonder what gear and what  his signal chain was for that.
 
Mike- dang!  
Stanley Turrentine, I used to have the vinyl Don't Mess with Mr. T., I need to search the basement . . .  I lost a lot of records to a flood many years ago . . .  
So many memories attached to this one:

I'm watching and listening to Phil Lesh play his new Alembic bass on the Lock'n Festival webcast. They just went into Crazy Fingers.
 
Phil is obviously having a blast with his new instrument. To me, his tone is reminiscent of that '74 Lesh bass sound that I love so much.

Currently going back in time it hear to some of the music that influenced two of my favorite bands, the Allman Bros., and John Mayall. Last few days have listened to Lightning Hopkins, Robert Johnson, the Reverend Gary Davis, and Blind Willie McTell.
 
Pauldo. What did you think of Silver Rails?
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: pauldo on September 09, 2014, 03:49:19 AM
Brian,
To be honest-  initial listen through fell short of my expectations. Most notable was that Jack's voice sounds tired . . . I grew up admiring his bass skills but through time really found his voice to be captivating and strong. So to hear what I heard was concerning. With that, the bass playing is what I would call conservative.  
 
As mentioned, Drone has a great bass tone and through out the disc there is some very tasty guitar and piano/ keys work.
 
Jack is moving through space and is aging like we all are, my expectations of Silver Rails to sound like How's Tricks? is not realistic.  
 
As long as Jack makes music I will continue to buy it, he is a legend in bass, lyrics, piano and vocals.
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: pauldo on September 09, 2014, 01:38:44 PM
Brian - saw your earlier post about Silver Rails and your shared feelings on Jack's voice sounding weak.
 
So with that in mind I dusted off:
Jack Bruce - How's Tricks?
also listened to:
Chrissie Hynde - Stockholm
David Gray - Mutineers
 
Both of those are 2014 releases - Chrissie's is good; David's is really good - he is another vocalist that I enjoy listening to.

And thanks for Bear Melt, Wolf.  I'm hoping to listen to St. Stephen / The Eleven / Turn on Your Love Light (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ss17vA6oPws) from Live Dead later on today.  Right now I'm listening to the rain fall outside the window, aka Live Rain.
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: sonicus on September 29, 2014, 11:21:20 AM
You are welcome Dave.  That Live Dead and that set of segued tunes is a total masterpiece to my ears.  I think the rain is music too ,Earth's music, in all of its variations and transitions and segues from cloudy to sunny  and then a rainbow ! There we can see the relativity between humanity and habitat and life  when we create music .We all know this of course and live it day to day. I just like to talk about it sometimes and feel gratitude for it.  It is my belief that reflecting this emotion during the creation of improvised  and composed music is a product  of the positive life force of humanity .  It's just what we musicians do . I really heard that in Bear Melt, and that whole Live Dead album. That has the Dark Star on it that l grew up with loving,and can not get enough of.  It may very well be playing continuously in my subconscious mind.

My favorite scene from Immortal Beloved has been the Moonlight Sonata scene.  Very moving.  This reading of the Sonata is a bit faster than most, but within the context of the movie, quite powerful.  Today I found that the musician performing the piece for the movie is Murray Perahia; and I found a recording of the first movement by him here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ZkcaWxMOU0) (this is the most familiar movement, and the one which is partially played in the movie).  Again, it is a bit faster than most, and the phrasing a little different as well.  But it is moving and powerful.  The faster pace allows more of the melody and chordal movement to be taken in by the listener at any given time, creating a different perspective from which to appreciate the piece.

As a young child, my dad played pretty much only classical music at home (funny, as he managed an Odeon theatre in Scotland where the Stones and the Beatles played, among others)...anyway, I was far more into Beethoven than Mozart; just a different level of intensity and use of the power of an orchestra...considering my musical tastes now it makes sense that I'd go for intensity...as an example, today was the new Orange Goblin cd back from the abyss and Electric Wizard's time to die...Dad doesn't like my taste in music but to his credit he listened to Rush and could appreciate what great musicians they were and he did come to one of my gigs...Tony.

Like Button Pressed davehouck. I frequently listen to classical in my shop... too distracting listening to something I can actually play. Lately it's been Vivaldi's Four Seasons, and Bach's Brandenburgs'.    
 
I have had to put aside recreational listening in an effort to focus on the music for some upcoming Christmas concerts, the main one being a contemporary P & W, to be played the weekends of 11/29-30 and again on 12/6-7. Sorta' makes me wish the Persuader 5 had green and red LED's. =)  
 
I am also playing upright bass with two prodigious little girls (sisters) one a violinist, the other, classical guitar & mandolin, for an hour-long program made up of fairly obscure 16th & 17th century Carols. Most are structured repetitiously, like folk music, but with unfamiliar time signatures and often mixed within one song. The measures are not necessarily symmetrical either. It's not quite over my head but right at it... just hoping to pull this one off without embarrassing myself.

I always had a little different take on them, having been a senior in high school when Tango came out, and techno-pop was threatening the universe.
 
Lindsey Buckingham quitting the band right before the tour... that was BIG news in 1987. That was the band I knew and liked, but they were who turned me onto the Bob Welch, Danny Kirwan, Jeremy Spencer, and Peter Green incarnations of Fleetwood Mac. I was (and still am) a true fan, and went on to enjoy the next two less successful versions that included Billy Burnette, Rick Vito, then Dave Mason (yeah, *that* Dave Mason) and Bekka Bramlett. I might be one of the very few people to actually own a copy of the Time album from 1995. =)  
 
Having played in bands that had major personnel changes, that's a hard thing to deal with, even more so I imagine, given the level they were already playing in the early 1970's. Buckingham and Nicks coming in... that wasn't an easy gig to walk into, but they did pretty well. And I haven't ever seen them be anything less than respectful of their predecessors.  
 
The endurance amazes me almost as much as the music has... Mick & John just keep on playing. I just try to appreciate all of it.

Finally watched the Hot Tuna Rock Palace show. Best footage of #1 I've ever seen!  The audience was groovin'!
 
What a tone from Casady. Has anyone had any luck replicating that sound without a Versatone amp?
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: sonicus on December 04, 2014, 07:05:53 AM
Hello Rob ,  That tone is wonderful , I agree 1000%.
 
 I have experimented with a stack of similar speakers and  power amps .
ALEMBIC Series II Bass strung with Pyramid Gold strings -  Alembic IN-2 -SF-1 Superfilter-  Alembic F2B preamp -Yamaha P2200 power amp X 2 - 4 Alembic A15 type  cabinets with Gauss 4580's  -1 Alembic B12 type cabinet W/ JBL K120's   -     I  Alembic A18 with 18' Gauss.  
 
The above produced  Sweet Thunder   however the slightly overdriven top end was missing that was INDEED PRODUCED FROM THE VERSATONE AMP ! ---- I know someone who had a pristine old one in perfect shape for sale, But those things did not have the build quality that I would expect for what the asking price was .  I know someone that has a schematic for those.  I  think I know what is inside . There would be another way to get their effect if I really wanted my top end overdriven. Bi amp a mono feed and send highs  to an amp to over drive the highs a bit  and a  few small speakers - 12's or 10's. ____ Experiment are fun .

Tone Poems by David Grisman and Tony Rice. Learning a few tunes off this incredible work for the new bluegrass project with which I'm involved. Finding it hard to stay on task at practice though because I'm getting so caught up in listening to the beautiful guitar and mandolin work.

But then again . . . . . Robert always had a big man-crush on Elvis, and this Honey Drippers track with Beck AND Page-y is absolute, incontrovertible, undeniable truth that 'it don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing', a sadly lacking aspect of groove in this digitized and quantized world.  Sample Rates can't Swing !

An aspect of what I like about this incarnation of  the JGB is the line up of Musicians ( yes , with a capital M ).Nicky Hopkins piano work is steller in my opinion in this genre, I always liked what he played . Ron Tutt on Drums and John Kahn on Bass paved that grooooooooovy road  for Jerry and Nicky to lay their musical reflections down in a very unique way that was the JGB in essennce and roots  .

Just received Joni Mitchell's 'through yellow Curtains'. Recorded live at the Second fret in Philadelphia between 1966 and 1968 they are probably the earliest decent recordings of Joni before she made it big. Her singing voice is incredible as you'd expect but what makes the package special are her numerous anecdotes. there's a little background tape hiss but it certainly doesn't detract from the performance. If you like Joni, you'll love this recording.

Various recordings of Dan Tyminski on mandolin, from Lonesome River Band days to present.  
 
I've been a closet mandolin player for years, but just got a gig playing mandolin in my Dad's bluegrass band. These guys had played together for years, but their mandolin player was suddenly, and very tragically killed in a logging accident in 2012, and they haven't played much since... anyway, I'm excited about running around playing music with the Ol' Man again, especially with him on bass.

I've posted links to some Cyril Morin tunes before, and here's another one.  Probably not everyone's cup of tea; but I think this is stunningly beautiful.  The Mind (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-Yb3WfEl7U)
 
The instrumentation is sparse; minimum but very effective percussion, and keyboards that paint a soundscape.  These support a voice and vocal line that are treated with a carefully contoured reverb.  The line itself is well crafted and skillfully sung.
 
I've listened to it before, but just now listened several times in a row.  Stunning.

That video of Rob and John is neat; they're so young! Rob used the same bass for SO long...I saw it soon before he retired it at the shop I used to work at; the pickguard was brass, held on with duct tape as the screw holes were done; filled with dowels that were themselves done repeatedly...the finish on body and neck was falling off in chunks...it looked awesome but it was clearly past the point where you would rely on it on tour; I don't know if he still uses it for recording. Tom Holliston their guitar player lives    8 blocks from me so I can usually tell when they're on tour or not...Tony

I have to say my preference is for Bob's original on his 'another side of Bob Dylan' album - also featuring 'Motorpsycho nightmare' which is one of my favourite songs of all time. I believe I can just about remember all the lyrics despite not having listened to it for a good few years. Might be the subject of my next 'What are you listening to' post although I've just been sent a setlit for a band I'm considering and there's not too many familiar songs on it so I'm going to be woodshedding for the next few days.

Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms, a classic from my high school years. (Dang, has it *really* been 29 years since this came out?!)
 
Anyway, I always loved John Illsley's smooth, supporting style of bass playing... uncannily like John McVie's. Listen to the similarities between Sultans of Swing and Go Your Own Way.

Last two days in the truck - Brand X Product - some of the best fretless bass and drum jamming around.  My favorite work by Percy Jones and Mike Clark on drums.
 
And right now - Wayne Krantz (played with Steely Dan)   His new Good Piranaha, Bad Piranaha is pretty cool.  Plus I'm going to see his trio next month here in Nashville.
 
And David Pastorious and Local 518.    Check them out!

Mike Stern's 'Time In Place'.
 
I had a bunch of tunes on a cassette tape for over 20 years and never knew what any of the tracks were.I'd labelled it 'Mystery Fusion Stuff' and I was scared to play it in case it got chewed up,and figured I'd never find out what any of the cuts were.Thanks to the Shazam app I've been able to identify most of them after all this time.Along with Frank Gambale's 'Legends' and 'The Tardis',this is a real highlight.

So I paused the rehearsal recording I was listening to so I could hear the Mike Stern song (I still can't get over how he is now to how fat he was with Miles..) anyway, just went back to rehearsal recording as I type this and it's kinda like going from a nice hotel wedding party to getting drunk with the dumpster divers out back scrounging the leftovers...I think I will always be closer to the dumpsters, which is funny as I am a goldsmith by training and work in a pawnshop so I have more gold go through my hands than most people see in a lifetime; damn I LOSE diamonds in my workshop, but tiny ones worth a few bucks each...still...anyway if anyone cares to listen, they'res some Rumsfeld tunes at reverbnation.com/rumsfeld and I don't know if they're the good recordings of the songs or not as I haven't checked in awhile; my drummer does that stuff...Tony.

I'm a big fan of 'Live from Daryl's House'.  One of the episodes, he had Booker T. Jones guesting, and Daryl reached back for this gem:
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVt3I-HupRE (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVt3I-HupRE)
 
. . . . Eddie Floyd's 'Never Found a Girl', which Booker T co-wrote and produced the side back in the day when Stax was a powerhouse.  Can't argue with him, one of my favorite tunes as well, and rockets me right back into the heyday of Soul music, somewhere I'm very happy.
 
Daryl's a great 'white soul singer', and without the baggage that usually drags with it, and a great student of his hometown Philly-style and all the rest.  I really dug the episodes with Smokey and Shelby Lynne, and Joe Walsh and Billy G turned in good days as well.

Nice video Joey.  I've seen a number of great jams on Live From Daryl's House; two of my favorites were the ones they did with Todd Rundgren.  Most of the good stuff is no longer up on Daryl's site; but thanks to you, I've found that some is up on youtube.  Here's I Saw The Light (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N48-K9z-HA4), shot at Todd's house.

Thanks for that, I did not know about Daryl's house; I will explore it now; so much good stuff!...the Todd Rundgren  song has a very different feel from the rest as it's in a different place; must be amazing to ask Booker T and Billy Gibbons, etc. to come over to your place to play some tunes with your band...Tony

Daryl's House is great fun.  Super band.
 
On a different note; my wife and I saw Birdman yesterday,
The score for the movie is AWESOME,
 
I was going to reveal it, but I think it is best served unannounced. If you have the time and don't mind spending a few bucks for a movie, you should see Birdman.  As I was watching I kept getting caught up in the score - saying, I got to know who this is.
 
If you don't want to see the movie then do a web search of Birdman score.

Just returned from a roadtrip trip to Boone/Blowing Rock, North Carolina, where I did a couple gigs with my 2nd cousin. The Persuader can cut a Country Blues-Ragtime gig too!  
 
Anyway, had a couple hundred miles to myself in the car, and listened to the (mostly forgotten) 1995 Fleetwood Mac album, Time. The band personnel at the time was Mick Fleetwood, John, & Christine McVie, with Dave Mason and Billy Burnette on guitars, and Bekka Bramlett as vocalist. I liked the whole album, but Mick's haunting narrative on the last track, These Strange Times presumably a tribute to Peter Green, really stuck with me as I climbed up Fancy Gap on I-77N back into Virginia.

Jim Bouquist hinted that him and his brother were getting ready for something awesome, and it happened to be Son Volt, after Uncle Tupelo disbanded....

I didn't know John Mayer was doing a show; I'll have to see if I can get it, he seems cool...listening to Dead covers here compared to concert recordings posted, I have to say I prefer the covers because they're the distilled origins and essence; I love jamming but to make a SONG you need to distill it to the core themes ( sorry, I'm making moonshine right now, so I'm into concentrating)...I saw SLEEP on Saturday night, who were awesome...the most awesome rigs; Al the bass player had THREE SVT STACKS with tho backup heads and a HIWATT half stack...Matt Pike had a Marshall jcm800 stack, a HIWATT stack( in white; never seen one before, looked awesome) and an Orange stack; full stacks too...HUGE is all I can say...hate to be the roadies...Tony

Yeah, caught the Weir/Mayer performance on FB, and almost didn't recognize Keltner w/out the massive DW set.... It was only until I honed in on his left foot that I made the connection.  
I did a gig w/ that bass player a few years back, I provided backline for all three bands.... I gave him a Walter Woods head, but I think he was eying the F2-B in my rack...

I think a lot of people write off Jerry Garcia's playing, but whatever you say about him, he knew how to play through changes (and thankfully, so does Trey, which does make him a good choice for this summer). Sometimes that doesn't become obvious until someone else tries to do it,  full of confidence that the same old blues licks will still work.
 
But I enjoyed both, it's nice to see Bob in better shape. I never liked his slide playing much in the past, but now I see it as entertaining performance art.
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: StephenR on February 10, 2015, 04:16:40 PM
That has to be the most PC comment about Weir's slide playing I have heard to date. As horrible as Weir's slide playing can be Jerry's wasn't much better... strange considering what a sweet sound he got on  pedal steel.
 
Thought the Weir/Mayer Truckin' was much better than the Althea but the Althea wasn't bad. Keltner's drumming on Truckin' was IMO exceptional, beautiful solid groove with lots of subtle melodic touches in the fills.
 
I hadn't looked at this thread in a while and missed the mention of a new Norman Blake CD. Been a huge fan since the early 70s so I will definitely be checking it out. Thanks...

Post by: pace on February 10, 2015, 08:00:10 PM
As far as slide playing, once you go to lap or pedal steel it's hard to go back... I'm just used to the weight and pressure of a heavy bar, and the muting pressure of my later digits, that when I try to play bottleneck now, it's just awful.... Luckily, I'm the first to notice...

The bass player on the Meyer/Weir gig looked familiar.  It took me a while of searching, but his name is Sean Hurley.  And he looked familiar because I've seen him in videos of Meyer posted here before; for instance this one (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PeNzGIw2zz8) with Meyer playing an Alembic Darling.  He's also an established session player with an extensive portfolio.

What sonicus said... great band, and looks like it would be a fun gig for a bass player. They remind me of something else, just can't put a finger on it. Anyway, they surely compliment each other well as a band. Easy to see they've been together a while.
 
As an aside, I've been trying since yesterday evening to figure out if that Martin guitar is a D-18 Golden Era, or Authentic Series. I'm guessing it's a GE. Definitely looks like an Adirondack top, and the long bridge saddle suggests it must be one or the other... the pickguard is throwing me off though. Maybe it was changed?

I just received the Anthology of American Folk Music, a six CD version of the original collection of recordings  put together by Harry Smith and released in 1952.  Among others, Dylan, Garcia,and Hunter have acknowledged the Anthology as seminal in their development.  I'm currently listening the CD's 1&2, Ballads.  3&4 are Social Music and 5&6 are Songs.  Altogether a total of eighty-four recordings from the 1920's and early 1930's.

Wolf; one of the things that impresses me most about Phil is that it seems to me that he is always trying to get better, in both his playing and his singing.  And in this video, it looks to me like he's once again pushing his own boundaries, playing what I think of as a difficult piece, for what looks to quite possibly be the first time, in a live situation.  And having loads of fun all at the same time.
 
And another thing, while I'm thinking out loud; he is introducing us to a lot of really cool younger musicians, giving them well deserved opportunities, and probably teaching them a thing or two along the way.

Dave , Quite certainly ,Phil and that collection of players with Nicki Bluhm did a great job of Free Man in Paris and Nicki sang it wonderfully and they made it their own with Jam Band Grateful Dead style from my perspective. I really liked what they did with it .  
 
 As far as Phil introducing young players to us I think is an awesome tradition among great artists such as Mr. Charlie Parker introducing  and inviting a young Miles Davis to play with him. Later Mr. Miles Davis introduced us to John McLaughlin  and Darryl Jones and several other players .  It is such a nice thing for a seasoned accomplished musician to do.

Good stuff...a LOT of ACOUSTIC amps up there in that gig...I love my 370; seriously, I've played a number of gigs using more modern solid state amps (Gallien Krueger, etc.) and they don't have the balls of my 370; I'd like some amp geek to explain why to me...
 
What I am listening to now is rehearsal recordings; some amazingly angry versions of songs; clearly the tensions of each member needed a release...someone recently described our sound as Killdozer mixed with Goddo; a mind-bending mix but perhaps the closest peg yet...Tony

It's Xander's favorite, especially Bouncing Around the Room, so we listen to it at least twice a day. It's got some great performers on it: Chalice, Steel Pulse, Toots, Chinna Smith, etc. Interesting to hear these songs with people who can REALLY sing.

One of those came through the shop a few years ago where I was working as an apprentice... hands down, that's gotta' be the strangest thing I ever worked on. IIRC, it was a 9 or 10-string too, not as insanely ornate as many are. There's not much I could compare the sound to... and that's saying a little bit, having been around fiddle music for my entire life.  
 
Cool find Paul! Love the Roadshow. Couple of those guys are neighbors of mine, if you ever see Will and Ken Farmer on there. They often appraise musical instruments.

Here we are in the peaceful aftermath of the infamous destruction at Delfest.

By destruction, I mean, this is what our set looked like. For the whole 90 minutes:
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIu5iZJxbTI (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIu5iZJxbTI)
 
70mph winds and hail. By the time it was over, Vince Herman, who was behind the stage keeping the amps from blowing over, was waist deep in ice water. I thought he was going to suffer hypothermia for sure (the temp dropped from the mid 80s to the mid 60s in nothing flat).
 
But, I digress. Listening to my recording of Fareed Haque and Tony Monaco from last Thursday night. Burning.

For bluegrass music fans here at the Alembic Club,  if you'll permit me a shameless plug... one of my good friends and former band-mates is (one of) the owners/partners at  http://bluegrasstoday.com/ (http://bluegrasstoday.com/)
 
He's grown that thing from the ground up... it's absolutely *the* clearing house for everything that's anything to do with that particular genre' of music, and often those peripheral to it.  
 
Most of you guys and girls know, bluegrass and rock, particularly the music that emerged from the folk boom, and that of bluegrass' 2nd generation of players, are inextricably related, having met up while travelling the same pathways in the late 1960's.

From Merlefest; Nickel Creek, The Lighthouse's Tale.

Went to NIU's annual World Music concert today.
2 gamelon ensembles; check (why I went)
Brazilian drum line; check
Middle Eastern string ensemble; check (piano, 3 violins, a viola, 3 cellos, a guitar, 2 ouds, a flute, a tar, a cajone, & a tamborine)
Mongolian throat singer; check - wait, what?!?!  I've heard of it, but this is the first time I've heard it.  Freakin' amazing!  Cat was bowing a 3-stringed, lap-held fiddle of sort, while at the same time, with his throat (duh - thus the name), he
 
1) Did a raspy/humming bass line
2) Did a baritone line with the same timbre that moved in parallel, and
3) Did a very intricate whistling melody up around 2nd soprano
 
Yes, that's one voice, three simultaneous vocal parts; if I hadn't been sitting there watching, I would have wagered cash money it was at overdubbed.  Did I mention amazing?

Cool! I met Devin maybe ten years ago with my friend Geoff; he used to manage a rehearsal studio where Strapping Young Lad played...so we're on our way to the bar after work and come across Devin sitting on a rock in a vacant lot about 2 blocks from that space; he was just watching the world go by i guess (a busy intersection) and he seemed to have no good story for being there other than to watch man/Ants at work...a funny meeting but even in that short interaction you could tell he was odd in a fun way...Tony.

One of the advantages that comes from running around playing music with my friends' kids (Mom swears I'm trying to get waived into Gen Y) is being exposed to music I would not have discovered independently.  
 
So lately, singer/songwriter Raina Rose came up in our band's Friday night creative circle... here's a tune from a collaborative album I found to be just irresistible. Especially the bass line. =)

Just came home from watching Faith No More; great show with amazing sound...my friend who I went with asked me how they write and arrange those songs; i told him I had no idea as I don't have the knowledge of all those styles of music, let alone how to make them mesh...truly amazing...Tony

Steve Gadd . 70 strong. featuring all of James Taylor's backing band including our very own Jimmy Johnson. Great stuff - mostly jazz and JJ gets a writing credit for a very nice tune.

Life can be a continuous musical class room.
 
I've noticed that as well.
 
   
 
Here's the classroom lesson I was studying a few nights ago:  Dream Theater's Illumination Theory (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaUbq3fghWQ), live with chorus and pit orchestra.  Very nice integration of the band with chorus and orchestra.  Maybe I was just in a more receptive frame of mind, but this seemed to me to work a lot better than a lot of other similar attempts to add orchestra to rock bands.

Dave , The link that  you provided was interesting.
 
If you liked that , then EPICA , a Female fronted Symphonic Metal band is quite awesome in my opinion.___ She sings quite well ! I like it.  
 
EPICA - Unleashed (OFFICIAL LIVE)

My taste to what I listen to and would be willing to play and perform in keeps growing . What EPICA is doing and playing looks like fun .  The fact is that there is $$$$ to be made  in Symphonic Metal .

Wolf; that's kind of an interesting thought, and I started writing a long response, and then deleted the whole thing.
 
Your last post started with If you liked that.  What's interesting is I've been sitting here for a while now trying to figure out what like means.
 
I'll say this about Dream Theater as an example; I greatly appreciate their writing and musicianship (instrumentally; I have no idea what the lyrics are), and for that reason I tend to listen to them every once in a while (I don't listen to anyone often; well, I suppose I listen to Phil Lesh relatively often).
 
But I don't think I have any kind of emotional connection to Dream Theater's music, just a lot of respect.  And again, I'm just using them as an example.
 
So, in response to your query, if I liked it, well, let's just say I appreciated it.
 
I'm going to have to think for a while as to what like means.
 
As a starting point, apparently I like this: Chopin - Fantasie Impromptu - Valentina Igoshina (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-HosIOod_A).

I spent many hours of my youth, seated at the baby grand assaulted by the un-ending 'tick,tock' of a keywound Seth Thomas metronome, beating my head soft with JS and CPE Bach, only to later find out what my teacher was desperately hiding from me:  The guilty thrill and 'sturm und drang' of the 'Short-Tempered Clavier' and the wonder of that Black Dog of the Bach Family Tree:

May be a new sound in development.   The Farm brings me new thoughts and feelings . THINK THIS  :  Dark Star in the  GAME OF THRONES !   LIKE WOW !  Dragons and fire and female vocals  !

True that ^ Tony. I feel pretty fortunate to have been an influence (hopefully a positive one) on several kids musical experience in the past few years. It's been a blast having a back-line seat watching them progress from prodigious youngsters into seasoned performers.  
 
My contribution to the Listening thread today: Mike Auldridge, Jerry Douglas & Rob Ickes - Three Bells. It's fantastic... you would think three resonator guitars wouldn't produce anything more than absolute cacophony, but each of these guys are masters of the instrument.  
 
My 2 favorite cuts:

*Mike Auldridge passed away this past year, this album was released posthumously. Mike was a peach of a guy, with whom I once had the honor of recording with. He was one of the most personable musicians I ever met, even wrote some of the liner notes on the project for us.

Her rendition makes the corners of my eyes tear ,  thus she has been successful as an artist and has made an impact, at least on me , but surely many other folks as well .

I suppose I have tinnitus; there is constant white noise in my ears.  I've had it for quite a while now, and I'm quite used to it.
 
Quite a while back, I had my hearing tested; and there was high end loss in my left ear, and both high end and low end loss in my right ear.  When I'm in a noisy room, I can't hear what other people are saying unless I lean in close with my left ear.
 
Of course I played in loud bar band most of my life.  But around fifteen years ago, the band I was in practiced in the basement of one of the members.  It was not a large room.  One night as we were getting ready to rehearse, he was adjusting the vocal levels; all of a sudden there was this piercing feedback, which really hurt.  I'm pretty sure that one incident did more damage than any other.
 
It's a cautionary tale for all of you who are still playing in loud bands.  If the person mixing your sound at rehearsal isn't careful, real damage can be done in a second.
 
Where I live it can get really quiet and peaceful.  I like to sit out on the front porch and listen to the creek, the wind in the trees, and the white noise in my ears.  They all blend in together.

Post by: sonicus on May 17, 2015, 07:13:26 PM
Dave,Thanks for checking  that out.  I am a little curious about the Symphonic type Metal with Female fronted  opera like  lead singers. There is musical drama and performance art there that I find appealing to some extent. Kind of Kool in a way .  
 
New stuff for me to hear  and maybe even explore !
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: David Houck on May 18, 2015, 06:18:53 AM
I thought the combination worked well.  And Wolf, if you haven't seen them with the first singer, you may like her as much as the third.
 
From what I read, most of what they record includes symphony orchestras.  I watched a few of their live videos, and while I'm not sure, it did seem to me that there may have been more musical content than was being produced by the musicians.  Put another way, it seemed to me that perhaps the orchestral and choral parts were not being reproduced by a keyboard, but by a recording.
 
Which is a whole, and perhaps interesting, discussion in itself.
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?

When I am working, the station I listen to most often is Venice Classic Radio. I find that baroque music provides the best environment for concentration.
 
Sometimes they get a bit overblown, but most of their selections are very good.

Also, a lot of what Bach composed he did not write down. Much of it was improvised and sketches written that were frozen on paper by later interpreters. He was apparently a brilliant improviser.

This thread is turning into What WERE you listening to for me.
Yesterday was my wife's birthday (and Mica's- happy belated).
 
We went and saw the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra perform Beethoven's Fifth, truly a pleasure.  The show started with some modern composers (Sean Shepherd and Nico Muhly).  But the cherry on top was that prior to going into Beethoven's brilliance, they played a short song by Morton Feldman.  
 
As soon as the song started my wife bolted upright and sat on the edge of her seat;  the song was the same song that is the intro to a local radio show (WMSE's The Modern Chamber) and she always swoons when she hears it.
So there it was, the perfect birthday gift, surprisingly provided by an unexpected source.
 
And here it is: Madame Press Died Last Week at Ninety

Agree Wolf... and of all the Romance languages, French seems to translate easiest into music. Alas, I only ever studied Latin, (use the term study loosely) so I couldn't understand a word of it. Ordinarily, you'd simply assume since you're performing it for a wedding ceremony, it must be pretty sentimental, but the sheer inflection makes it clear in that sound.  
 
It wasn't as difficult as I thought either... there is no bass on the recording I was given to study, so I was able to chart it with a clean slate.  
 
FWIW, The Civil Wars was a short-lived thing... the duo split last year even with some critical acclaim ongoing. I wish there had been more of that kind of thing happening in Nashville back in my time there.

Watching and listening to Bill Frisell live from Jazz at Lincoln Center. The Jazz at Lincoln Center webcasts are always excellent quality. The two shows tomorrow night will also be webcast, show times below are EST. Some good stuff so far including a great version of Muddy Water's I Can't Be Satisfied.
 
In the grand series finale of two years and six dynamic performances of the Roots of Americana series, Guitarist Bill Frisell, along with saxophonist Greg Osby, pianist Craig Taborn, and drummer Rudy Royston, embarks on a musical journey along the revered route, which Bob Dylan famously immortalized in 1965. Join us for a profoundly historic sojourn realized by Frisell through his unique embodiment of the the American landscape.

Steve Martin is a real decent banjo player. And a serious art collector. Go figure.

Post by: cozmik_cowboy on June 07, 2015, 12:01:54 AM
Saw Martin guest-host for Carson once; it was the first I knew he played, and I thought he was pretty fair.  But one of his guests was his teacher (that would be John McEuen (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xyoJ1Ijl-SU)) and he kind of blew me away.  Then, while they were at the couch talking, John lays his banjo on the floor, takes off his shoes & socks (to reveal another pair of socks with the toes cut out) and proceeds to blow away most players I've heard with his feet!

Having grown up in the house of a banjo player, I can tell you firsthand - banjo players are a breed all to their own. =)  
 
I absolutely *love* Steve Martin's frailed-style of playing, but not as much the three-finger Scruggs-style. I could never figure out why one style was so immaculately in time and the other seemed... forced. But then I (somehow) never knew McEuen had been his mentor, which makes it totally make sense!

I just listened to the Bonnie Dobson version of Morning Dew. I have to admit that I had never heard of her before. MD is my favorite Dead song and I always thought they had written it. Got me thinking how many other songs of theirs that I like actually are covers. Does anyone know if there is a simple list anywhere that shows the songs the Dead have played and who the original artist was?

Here's another list (http://www.coversproject.com/artist/grateful%20dead/); still not comprehensive, but a decent start, I think.
This one (http://www.coversproject.com/artist/grateful%20dead/) has most of the same songs, but with more details.
Both leave off And We Bid You Goodnight (Sara Doudney/Ira David Sankey), among others.

Just heard about this kid (yes, kid, all of 11 years old) and I had to buy his album. Great player, great players on the record, great sounding record. One of my new favorites. His Giant Steps is especially good. If you just heard the music, you'd have no idea he can barely see over the piano. Some of it reminds me of Ahmad Jamal.

Out-takes from Fleetwood-Mac's Rumours.
 
I especially like Keep Me There, one of three unfinished songs that became what we know as The Chain. Love how John's line is based more off what Christine played on keys, than Mick's kickdrum, especially the intro and his signature melodic fills.  
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtP1AzUQDwM (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtP1AzUQDwM)
 
I'm pretty sure even though this is an alternate take, it's the fretless (ahem - *continuously fretted*) Alembic... you can hear it pretty well in this mix. The part of this track from 2:44 out is supposedly what made it onto the album.

OK, OK, I'm not listening to it now (unfortunately!), but I heard a phenomenal version of That's It for the Other One on Today In Grateful Dead history (Sirius XM) yesterday morning. It was from a rare show in June 1970 in Oahu, Hawaii. I'm usually not much into drum solos, but I thought the solo in that version was excellent and unique. At one point, you could hear Kreutzmann adding some vocalization of beats! Of course, I wanted to hear the moment when Phil blasts in with his bass intro, but the drum solo kept going. Alas, I had to go into work before it got to that point in the song! I figured I would find it on archive.org later, but it's not on there!
 
Has anyone heard this before? Great stuff!
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: David Houck on June 11, 2015, 02:31:50 PM
It looks like there were three shows in Oahu in June, 1970; the 10th, 12th, and 13th.  That's It for the Other One is not listed on the 13th.  I didn't see a set list for the other two.  The 10th, apparently at Diamond Head Crater, isn't even listed in some show lists, so this might not be it.  But here's what I found (http://deadessays.blogspot.com/2009/08/missing-1970-shows.html) on the 12th:
 
6/12/70 Oahu - Not in circulation. Lemieux has played The Other One on the Taper's Section a couple times.
 
So I'm guessing that's what you heard.

Last night I watched the first set of the second night of Phil's 1977 tribute, with special guest John Mayer.
 
The lineups for these shows is always changing; there is no set band that has played the songs together for a while.  And some of the Dead material is difficult.
 
So I'm watching last night and they do Sunrise!  Very rare performance.  Even Phil and Stu were glued to their music stands reading the chart.  At one point Phil is looking around at the other players as if wondering what happens next.
 
For those unfamiliar with the tune, here is the original (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6W2SQfNNvRc).
 
Singing it this time was Jeannette Ferber, and she did very well.  The whole set is here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ygxcDFGYLE).

*edit - special mention for the fiddle solo 2:40 - 3:40.

Patti Smith covering George Harrison's Within You Without You (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXutckBzuyY).  It's a departure from the original in that the underlying rhythm is quite different; but Patti gives a very nice reading.
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?

Thanks for sharing that Patti Smith; I've of course known of her forever but never heard( I think I even have a cd I've never listened to...I have thousands so so things get buried before I can hear them...) I think I have to dig that cd out and such...it sorta sucks having musical tastes going from King Sunny Ade to Pig Destroyer because there's always a ton of stuff you're gonna miss no matter how much music you buy and check out...oh well, just gotta think of us all as music  barnacles, trying to catch as much with our flagellum as we can...Tony
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: edwin on July 12, 2015, 12:49:57 AM
Regardless of what you might think of Patti Smith's music, it's well worth reading her book, Just Kids, her account of her life with Robert Mapplethorpe in the late 60s and early 70s in NYC. She's a great writer and her tales are very compelling. It's an amazing window into a time and place that was really the transition between post-WWII NY and the modern city.
 
 
I did get to see her open for the Grateful Dead once. That was a lot of fun.

I saw her at CBGB's in New York MANY years ago, when she first hit big.  I don't remember too much about the music.  Rather, I remember her humping the mic stand and her bass player wrapping aluminum foil around his head and trying (unsuccessfully) to climb up a column supporting the roof.  I was not impressed.

Enjoyed Purson Wolf. I'm drawn to that relaxingly under-produced sound.  
 
Conversely, I'm listening to the (mildy over-produced) soundtrack to the movie Twister from 1996. (NO WAY that was twenty years ago!)  
 
Specifically, Lindsey Buckingham & Stevie Nicks' theme music Twisted. Stevie claims at least to have written the lyrics long before, that they just happened to loosely coincide with the movie plot. This must have been recorded right before the concert and subsequent reunion tour for The Dance.  
 
Anyway, I sat up half the night with a very good friend watching it on DVD this weekend, so it must've stuck in my head. The words have taken on a different meaning for me, in the wake of another good friend's recent passing.

Gregory ,  
I am glad that you liked the Purson link. The Bass player Justin Smith is also an interesting player in that it seems that he has been influenced by some of the same Bass players that I was decades ago myself.  He also has a GUILD STARFIRE in his stable of instruments and seems to be endorsed by GUILD  by the look of this link.

I am very hopeful that soon he will be playing an ALEMBIC Bass on stage ! Perhaps it is just a matter of time. If someone handed him a swell Alembic bass to checkout and play sometime I can't see why that could not happen.  
 
  I checked out the words to  Twisted in your link , I can relate as well , I have been there a few times as well .
Emotional recovery from such loss is not easy.  Hang in there brother we are there with you .

I'll have to see if some of my younger, (far more tech-savvy) fellow musicians can post some of what we're up to down there. This will be my 28th consecutive year as a contestant, and my 30th in attendance.  
 
Unfortunately, (thanks to the actions of some rude, obnoxious folks a few years ago) they don't allow any electrically amplified instruments in the campground, so the Alembic stays home. =(  
 
But hey, the ol' upright needs some love too. =)

At some point back in the 70's or thereabouts (I no longer remember when), I went to this one (http://vanhoyfarms.com/fiddlers-convention/).  I can remember that there were lots of people there, lots of musicians, and that I had a good time.

[update] Found this on wikipedia:
 
The Union Grove Old Time Fiddlers' Convention originally founded in 1924 by H. P. VanHoy and friends, as a fund raiser for the school. Held annually on the school grounds every Easter weekend, the Fiddlers' Convention was a popular community event that brought many area old-time fiddlers into the small unincorporated town of Union Grove to compete. With the folk music revival in the 1950s and 1960s, however, this small-town community event became increasingly popular with young people who would travel great distances to attend. The unconventional lifestyles of some of these young people disturbed many residents of the conservative farming community. The Woodstock generation generated huge crowds to Union Grove, thus overwhelming the community's resources.
 
I guess I was one of those woodstock generation that overwhelmed the place.

I know about Union Grove Dave, but never went to that one. My Dad want to take (6-year-old) me to this one- http://www.stompin76.com/ (http://www.stompin76.com/) but my Mom wouldn't let him! That festival was probably the turning point in the generational gap between the originators and your age bracket. How the time foes fly... a few years later, I was *playing* at the reunion Stompin'99. What a week! It was the strangest meld of 3 generations of Deadheads and the top tier of the Bluegrass & Oldtyme world all in one 40-acre field. All the musicians were put in cabins together, a tragic error on the promoters part, since very shortly after that got spread around, there were as many people in the musicians village as there were at the main stage.    
 
I could go on about that for a while, but in the spirit of the LISTENING THREAD, I've been killing time this morning listening to James Taylor. I caught his show in Greensboro last night. (and got to meet-n-hang for a while with fellow Alembican JimmyJ... awesomely nice guy)  
 
It was pretty special to hear JT do this one when *actually in* Carolina. http://youtu.be/1S-d_IITWk4 (http://youtu.be/1S-d_IITWk4)

For practice time, I've been playing along with Vince Gill's 1996 High Lonesome Sound album this morning. It came out during my time in Nashville, and it makes me remember the good times there. Anyway, the bass playing on it always makes me think of Jimmy Johnson. (no wonder - Leland Sklar played bass on 90% of the album, the other 10% was Barry Bales of Alison Krauss & Union Station if you're wondering... also a monster bassist)?
 
This tune jumped out at me today... I always thought Jenny Dreamed of Trains was a John Denver tune, but no, it's Vinnie and Guy Clark.?

18 years ago today, Fleetwood-Mac releases The Dance, a live concert featuring the full Rumours era lineup of Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie, Stevie Nicks, and Lindsey Buckingham. The album featured two brand new tunes:  
 
Sweet Girl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWNZmMhBwhs (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWNZmMhBwhs)
 
and Bleed to Love Her https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5BZzkWXcwc (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5BZzkWXcwc)
 
John's bass lines on these two songs is just as fascinating to me today as they were the first time I heard them.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=At06d1sBlaE (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=At06d1sBlaE)
 
Alison has a gift for picking songs that work for her, and this one is a gem... can't figure how it garnered so little attention. I've been thinking about my buddy Tony a lot lately... this tune has taken on new meaning since he's been gone.  
 
Incidentally, the bassist on this live take is Abe Laboriel... I love how he just pedals that same little groove all the way through.

Zeppelin.  Lots of Zeppelin.  
 
Page's production and playing, JPJ's immaculate lines (40 years later, I STILL keep finding gems in his bass parts, like the double stops under the chorus of 'When the Levee Breaks'), Bonham's massive drumming, and Percy's vocals.  And the range they covered, for me, was always eye-opening.  Plus, it's just my favorite s**t to play REALLY, REALLY, LOUD.

Brittany Haas, world-class fiddler, joined by her sister Natalie on cello and Joe Walsh on mandolin. The second tune in this medley (at 3:15) is Duck River, a traditional fiddle tune that really showcases her amazing abilities.  
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-Fg5SCoeBA (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-Fg5SCoeBA)
 
Duck River, like most other Appalachian fiddle melodies, is also known by several different titles. Some of which are: Dubuque, Old Dubuque, General Lee, or Sally in the Green Corn. A little more searching says the specific Duck River tune seems to be part of a fairly common tune family. The tune family to which Duck River belongs also includes Ma Ferguson, Nancy Dawson, Nancy Dalton, and Hell Up Coal Holler See also Mabel and Possum Up a Gum Stump.  
 
I don't necessarily agree... those tunes are quite different from a bass player's perspective. Anyway, Brit can bring it!

Spent last night in the company of C,S,& N at Glasgow's royal concert hall. I have to say, for a bunch of guys in their 70's they still have phenomenal voices. More or less a 'Greatest Hits' show with 3 new numbers(one from each of them) they blasted out hit after hit with no apparent vocal issues although Stephen looked relieved to have got through 'Suite' cleanly at the end of the show.  
One highlight - Croz brought out his 12 string alembicised starfire for wooden ships. It still looks to be in immaculate condition and sounded fantastic.  
Another highlight, - they had Russ Kunkel on drums - one of my favourites.
And we bumped into croz (literally) outside the venue as we were chatting with friends we haven't seen for ages. ( he was being rushed to his transport by a couple of heavies as they'd not parked at the stage door).
 
They're getting on in years and I don't know how long they can keep the harmonies going but based on last night's performance I doubt they'll be quiting anytime soon.

Last weekend...Saturday night it was David Grisman  and the Bluegrass Experience.  Sunday Victor Wooten. The Grisman show was not only a musical experience but an educational one as well. Purchased seats the night before for $40 and sat front row.  The next night at the Dakota Jazz club with Wooten was just as good. A true virtuoso. What a weekend of music! and for a TOTAL of $75.  Main reason I won't be purchasing tickets at $50 (rafters), $75 (can actually see the person on the stage), $100 close enough to be able to tell Weir from  Hart) for the Dean & company shows in Minneapolis,

The Kinks' Low Budget tour in 1979 was the first gig I took the future Mrs J to when we started courting. Amazing night.  ray Davies changed his jacket after just about every song. Bottom end on that tour was held down by Jim Rodford (ex Argent) who had the first Trace Elliot amp I ever heard. I still have the ticket and metal badge (pin) from that gig.

I just discovered this last night. Old & In The Way LIVE in '73
 
http://youtu.be/nhA8bntkypE (http://youtu.be/nhA8bntkypE)
 
Great sound, especially Vassar Clement's fiddle and Jerry Garcia's banjo. (You forget what a great banjoist he was, y'know what I mean?)  
 
I'd been listening to C,S,N&Y's Deja Vu album for years and always admired the amazing pedal steel on Teach Your Children. I was on tour with Mason Williams and the song came on the radio. He said that the pedal steel part was played by Jerry Garcia! (It's in the album credits, but I never noticed it.)  
 
I remember that Mason also said that it was a legendary session because supposedly Jerry showed up, listened to the song once and played. That's the take we've heard all these years! Apparently Jerry was so embarrassed by the take that he left immediately, and didn't like to discuss it afterward.  
 
Yet there's a whole generation (or three) that if you asked them to name one steel guitar part ...
 
Anyway, there are a lot of songs on this recording that aren't on the album. Enjoy!

Edwin, I love the cello. I don't have many regrets in life, but the one I do have is that I didn't take up cello until the age of 30, by which point it's difficult if not impossible to find a teacher. Consequently, I only ever play it at home to amuse myself.
 
Here's one of my favorite modern pieces rendered by Yo Yo Ma. A good friend sent it to me on a very bad day a little while back.

On the subject of Anner Bijlsma, he was featured in yesterday's Vrije Geluiden (http://www.vpro.nl/vrije-geluiden/media.VPWON_1232814.html target=_blank) TV program, an interview laced with fly-on-the-wall footage of him tutoring three cellists on the finer points of phrasing when playing the G major cello suite.

That's just amazing on so many levels. First, Stanley himself. Playing an upright bass is a very physical act. (watch his face) Playing a cello piece on upright bass shouldn't even be possible. Secondly, that is also an incredible instrument he's playing. There just aren't that many upright basses that can even be played in that register and sound like anything other than bow noise.  
 
I have no idea why these guys popped into my head last night, but I really liked them a lot. Hadn't heard this song in years... it ain't J.S. Bach, but it made me feel good.

I just finished watching the movie Round Midnight (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Round_Midnight_%28film%29).  I've watched it a few times
before, but it's been a while.  It's loosely based on the story of Bud Powell.  It's a
wonderful, if sad, movie, with lots of great musicians, and full of great music.
Highly recommended.

This clip shows JJ with a really nice P90'd LP that he gets sounding a whole lot like a Tele.  Dig the stereo setup with two AC30's for that chorus riff that runs through the tune.  I had to laugh remembering Pete Anderson behind Yoakam running a pair of snarling Twins off a Space Echo !

This is my buddy Tony Collins, who would have been 55 today. Someone caught this video of him at the Galax Fiddler's Convention a couple years ago, jamming a flatpicking standard with another member of the next generation of guitar monsters. It's one of the very few recordings that exist, but it's very typical of Tony. He loved to sit and jam, especially with the youngsters, and (as evidenced here) they soaked it in like sponges.
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXsnAHXNFl8 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXsnAHXNFl8)
 
The other young musicians in this video, watching this scene unfold... most weren't even born yet when me and Tony first met up in that muddy field. It's been 2-1/2 months now... I still can't believe he's gone. But as clearly as you can see the inspiration on their faces, the music lives on. I really miss that guy.
 
*incidentally, I'm 99.9% sure that's Tony's beloved double-nickel a 1955 Martin D-18 Jared is playing. They must have switched guitars for this tune.

Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: edwardofhuncote on September 29, 2015, 04:22:01 AM
I'm not sure Dave... just listening, I think he hung onto that minor 6 chord longer than he meant to, and just said Sorry 'bout that man, apparently thinking he might've messed up Jared's solo. Tony would often exclaim something in his native East Tennessean during a hot line... one of the things I liked most about him was how he admired other players. There was never a hint of conceit in him.
 
Temperance Reel is another one of those old tunes that has evolved somewhat in the past half-century. The younger players tend to drop a 4-chord into the resolve of the b-part, where some of us more seasoned guys stubbornly hold the minor-6. I think that's what was going on here... watch how Tony watches Jared's left hand, as if he's trying to decide which incarnation of the tune is being played. Most all these younger players are friends of Tony's kids... both of them are extremely gifted players too.

A friend just shared something that I think some of you will like.  This is Eric Bibb playing Booker's Guitar (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQl6g-jrFYk).  There is a nice story, both in the lyrics and in the notes below the video; and nice guitar work.  The vocal is a nice combination of spoken word sometimes moving into melody.  Beautiful tune.

Just finished watching Phil & Friends (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_ZSKD0wNWk) at Lockn' 9/12/15.
 
The band was  Phil Lesh (bass, vocals), Carlos Santana (guitar), Warren Haynes (guitar, vocals), Rob Barraco (keys, vocals), Barry Sless (guitar, pedal steel), John Molo (drums).
 
Great lineup, and a great set!
 
Barry Sless took the lead in all the right places, and the band went through some really cool changes.  The vocals between Barraco, Warren, and Phil were great.
 
Sound quality was very good, however the mix was sometimes a bit uneven.  The video quality was also very good, however the producer apparently couldn't tell who was playing the lead parts, and they rarely focused on Barraco and Sless.
 
But the performance was wonderful; much better than I was expecting.  And the bass was way up in the mix and sounded great; and the producer focused on Phil and the Alembic a lot.  And Phil was playing great and having fun.

I was thinking of Lester Young a little earlier this evening, and went looking for this famous video from 1957 featuring Billie Holiday and a number of other jazz greats.  If you watched Ken Burns' jazz documentary, this scene is in there.
 
Lester takes the second solo after Billie's first verse.  The whole video is great.  Billie is wonderful; and Lester's solo is sublime.

Graeme; I think it's amazing.  I learned a lot from it; plus, it is so well put together that, for me, it's very enjoyable viewing.  Burns' team meticulously revived old archival footage, bringing it alive to help tell the story.  It really does tell the history of this music in that you can see the evolution over time.
 
There are reasonable criticisms, especially over musicians left out or glossed over, and others for whom too much time might have been spent, and the choice of expert commentators, etc; and some have found the last chapter on current day developments somewhat lacking.  But overall, an amazing work, and a great resource.
 
I hope you like it.

Dang Forest, that's hard-core critique ^there^ bud... don't hold back.  =)  
 
The thing kinda' grew on me later... I was a senior in high school when Tango in the Night came out, which was coincidentally about the same time I started playing bass. I worked my way backwards through all the albums prior, but it was a while before I got the big picture. I was but a pup in 1969 when John and Mick started their namesake trip, so it wasn't like I had grown up with the classic blues/rock incarnations of the band. I was however, fascinated by them in good ol' 1987 though... it kinda' became the soundtrack for my late teens.  
 
Now, here's a fine example of the small world that is music... I actually knew Buster B. (Brad) Jones, and had the chance to play with him a couple times. Not only that, I'm tracking this coming Saturday morning at Flat Five Studios where a good portion of his music was recorded. The tracking engineer Tom Ohmsen, is a mutual friend.  RIP Brad... he was a monster player.

You had me at Tony Levin. I was all over Peter Gabriel's first album (especially because Levin plays tuba and upright bass, like me) to the point where I bought a 10-string Chapman Stick for an astronomical price, only to find out I can't play the damn thing.  
 
The bass strings are in the middle, with the highest strings to the outside. From your chin, the first five strings are tuned in 4ths - high to low, remember. Same tuning as bass, but the pitches are reversed.
 

(http://alembic.com/club/messages/449/220888.jpg)
 
 
See what I mean? Wrap your brain around that, then add the fact that you're playing with BOTH HANDS. Yikes! Like all true masters, Tony Levin makes it look easy. Next time you hear Sledgehammer, do the pat your head and rub your belly, then switch thing to get an idea of what it's like to play that on Chapman Stick.
 
Y'know, I was going to cut 'n paste something about Tony Levin, but since Dec. 8, 1980 I've always thought of Tony Levin as the bassist on John Lennon's Double Fantasy. It's comforting in a bass-centric way, somehow. So just take a moment and see how many Tony Levin bass lines you know in your head, but didn't know they were his;
 
http://www.papabear.com/discography.html (http://www.papabear.com/discography.html) (the further down that list you go, the more staggering the discoveries.)

He's created masterpieces with everyone from King Crimson to the Bulgarian Women's Choir. (You have to hear Tony Levin with Terry Bozzio: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Situation_Dangerous (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Situation_Dangerous) )

I once saw TL at a Trace-Eliot showcase, after G****n bought them, and he was featured in those print ads.  He'd demo several Trace rigs with his usual MusicMans, then he suddenly whipped out the Chapman (this was after he demonstrated his technique with those sticks on his fingers) and began to play that crazy intro to that Crimson tune.  It was fabulous in that he admitted he never forgot how to play it, but he couldn't explain HOW he played it !
 
I always loved that picture on the NS Design website with Tony onstage with PG with that full-length NS upright strapped on (but at times, he really does look like G Gordon Libby:  I'm sure he must cringe!).
 
One of my favorite times I saw him was back in the day, Cinemax ran a tribute to Les Paul, and one of the performances was EvH backed by TL, Jan Hammer, and Bruford, as all three of whom seemed to be saying, 'OK kid, try that elephant trumpet thing with us, and we'll SEE what ya got', and sure enough he did, and they didn't !
Glad you remembered it too, Eddie Z.

That's a NICE kick to be on Wolf!  
 
I'm (still) on a McVie kick, and am about halfway through learning the tunes on his one album with a relatively unknown singer named Lola Thomas. I stumbled through this one late last night (ironically on the eve of an ex-girlfriend's birthday) and really got into the cool blue stuff he's playing:

Somebody mentioned Tim O'Brien: here's two by *Red Knuckles and the Trailblazers
 
Red Remembers the Sixties http://youtu.be/4x4fjr67_jE (http://youtu.be/4x4fjr67_jE)
 
Apache http://youtu.be/4x4fjr67_jE (http://youtu.be/4x4fjr67_jE)
 
* according to Hot Rize' site ( http://hotrize.com/red-knuckles-trailblazers/ (http://hotrize.com/red-knuckles-trailblazers/) ); Red Knuckles and the Trailblazers is a band that travels in the back of the Hot Rize bus and occasionally spells their employers on stage. The foursome (Red Knuckles, Wendell Mercantile, Waldo Otto, and Swade) plays 40?s and 50?s country music as well as you might expect from people who have mostly listened to the same jukebox for most of their lives. That jukebox, at the Eat Cafe in Wyoming, Montana, is where Red and the boys first met Hot Rize and agreed to leave their home to pursue fortune and fame.
 
Check out Wendell's guitar:

Up the 'Blazers Ed_Zep! Love those guys!
 
That's seriously one of the funniest alter-ego comedic routines ever. Hot Rize was just at a local venue recently but I had a gig elsewhere that night.  
 
One of the funniest bits they ever did, at the Ryman Auditorium one night, they had Jerry Douglas dressed in a white tux, dark glasses and a huge cigar as the Trailblazer's manager, and Sam Bush in a blue and red leotard as Waldo's long-lost cousin.
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: ed_zeppelin on October 21, 2015, 09:44:45 AM
This must be a version of the same thing, with Jerry Douglas and Sam Bush, though some of the details differ: http://youtu.be/zRU9LjInuBo (http://youtu.be/zRU9LjInuBo)
 
I've seen them live a bunch of times. Red introduced Waldo as the guy playing electric table one time, and it still cracks me up. (Especially because Waldo may - or may not - be closely related to Peter Wernick, in my unbelievably humble opinion, one of the greatest banjo players who ever lived).
 
I learned how to play a walking bass line from Swade. Red asked him to demonstrate walking bass for the crowd, and Swade played one note (completely offbeat, of course) while walking slowly back and forth across the stage. (I still can't do it on an upright, though.)

Solitaire by Jethro Tull
 
Brain storming, habit forming, battle warning
Weary winsome actor spewing spineless chilling lines
The critics falling over to tell themselves he's boring
And really not an awful lot of fun
Well, who the hell can he be when he's never had V.D.
And he doesn't even sit on toilet seats?
Court jesting, never resting, he must be very cunning
To assume an air of dignity and bless us all with his oratory prowess
His lame brained antics and his jumping in the air
And every night his act's the same
And so it must be all a game of chess he's playing
But you're wrong, Steve.  
 
You see, it's only solitaire.
 
 
That's what happens when you piss off a Scot. Steve got off easy. Trust me.

Chris Squire and Yes, live 2014 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDM90ZO94VE).  These guys play these songs so well; and these are songs I've always loved.
 
Good sound quality, and good video; however, the youtube vid is a little out of sync (would be nice to have the DVD).  Still, it's a great document to Chris Squire, and to Yes; and an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon.

Nice one Dave. I watched about half yesterday, and will catch the rest tonight. Playing with a pick completely bum-fuzzles me... and Chris Squire does it masterfully. I should spend time on that.  
 
Been under the weather (or something) since Thursday. I finally felt like playing again by yesterday evening, and went through Alison Krauss & Union Station's Lonely Runs Both Ways album. The lead-off track Gravity always hits home with me... Alison has always had a way of picking songs that mirror the life of a musician. Here's a live cut from Austin City Limits:

Playing like everyone else wasn't difficult enough for Fripp, so he invented New Standard Tuning  
 
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_standard_tuning (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_standard_tuning)
 
The guitar's strings are assigned the notes C2-G2-D3-A3-E4-G4 (from lowest to highest); the five lowest open strings are each tuned to an interval of a perfect fifth {(C,G),(G,D),(D,A),(A,E)}; the two highest strings are a minor third apart (E,G).
 
It presents particular issues for bass;
 
http://www.talkbass.com/threads/fripp-tuning.914734/ (http://www.talkbass.com/threads/fripp-tuning.914734/)
 
My favorite comment:
 
Use the thickest taper-core low B you can find. I use a Sadowsky black label flat at 0.130T for this tuning (and while it's cool you call it Fripp tuning, violincellos have been tuned like this for over 300 years, so let's not give Fripp credit for everything!).
 
TI jazz flats have a 0.136, but it's not a taper-core if I recall correctly. The taper core will seat the string lower in the saddle and hopefully will solve your problem (you're still a bit sharp, correct?).
 
I'll try it, as soon as I get the hang of (B)EADG tuning. It should only take another lifetime or two. Let me know how it works out for you.

Muleskinner, (with the late, great Bill Keith and Clarence White on banjo and guitar, respectively) one of the quintessential moments for bluegrass music, caught on film very much by chance. I believe it was a key turning point in our music, when the second generation of players began to take up the torch.

Preston Reed was another pioneer of the acoustic guitar as percussion instrument style made popular by Michael Hedges and Tommy Emmanuel. This ain't about that, but here's an  example of what I mean, for comparative purposes:
 
Slap Funk by Preston Reed: http://youtu.be/WI29XhoejBE (http://youtu.be/WI29XhoejBE)
 
The song I want to turn you on to is his Overture: For Lily because it's a great composition with a great story, that I got from Preston Reed himself. He brought a guitar with him to the waiting room in the maternity ward for the birth of his daughter, Lily. It's all there in musical form; the tension, impatience, fear ... and the moment when she opened her eyes and looked into his.
 
http://youtu.be/WI29XhoejBE (http://youtu.be/WI29XhoejBE)
 
I dislike watching the video, because I fell in love with the tremendous emotions of the song from listening to the CD, and the intro is so simple and evocative of time dragging by. That doesn't come across nearly as well when watching him play it. Hell, I didn't even KNOW there was a video until ten minutes ago, ha ha.
 
Do yourself a favor and get his (remastered) album Metal.  
 
http://www.amazon.com/Metal-Preston-Reed/dp/B0007ZT2MA (http://www.amazon.com/Metal-Preston-Reed/dp/B0007ZT2MA)
 
It's been one of my favorite road music CDs for twenty years. (Martin Simpson had arranged a collaboration between Michael Hedges and Preston Reed that was partially recorded at the time of Michael Hedges' tragic passing. None of the music has ever been released. Anybody got connections? I'd love to hear that.)

And now for a shot at the most unusual What are you listening to now...A Greek-Russian (whose parents were exiled here by Stalin in the 1940s) playing Bob Dylan in a 10 x 10 room/house in Ungud Siberia.
 
And yes, it was a live performance during which I was surrounded by 8 Russians including a lieutenant in the Red Army (only one of whom spoke more than a few words of English) who went through 7 bottles of Vodka in about 4 hours. It actually wasn't a bad impression of Bob Dylan at all.

Dave:
 
I'm not surprised you were unable to find Ungud on a map. It is a small village of about 800 people located about 2.5 hours north of Krasnoyarsk. You get off the main (i.e., partially paved) road and then drive for about 70 km on unpaved heavily rutted roads during which the only vehicles you see are Ukrainian made jeeps and what appear to be Russian Army jeeps of WWII vintage. There are actually two additional villages on the road further off the main road  than Ungud the last of which is known as the end of civilization by the locals.  
 
The villages are located in what is referred to as the Russian Taiga (evergreen woods that are so thick that they really can't be entered).  All of the villages in the area were settled by people exiled to Siberia in the Stalin area for one reason or another.  Interestingly, like many parts of rural Vermont, New Hampshire, Colorado, etc. the area is becoming a bit gentrified as people from the city of Krasnoyarsk, almost all of whom live in apartments, are buying the old log cabins ripping them down and building vacation cabins.
 
The locals still get their water from the river, have outhouses, and burn wood to stay warm in the winter. I'd say that the average age of villages is probably in the 70s (or older).
 
We are working with Krasnoyarsk State University at supporting the inclusion of children with disabilities in the schools and were in Ingud to talk with the educators at the village school which serves 3 villages and 60 kids K-12. They refuse to label kids as having disabilities because the gov't will then require them to hire special education teachers so they prefer to take care of their own so to speak.
 
The people are wonderful and make the best of what they have in an area where there is snow on the ground from late October until late May (great cross country ski country).  Spent an amazing two days there connecting with people whose language I can't even come close to understanding but was able to connect with through our mutual love of music.

After a vivid dream of a lost love (one of our dogs), I awoke to see a bright star peering through our window.  Seeing the star with out my corrective lenses is a feat in itself. . .  I couldn't sleep as the dream had me rattled.  Got my glasses and realized it was Sirius (Dog Star) peeking in at me, as I tumbled about trying to get back to sleep the Canis Major constellation star drifted out of the windows view . . . it occurred to me that when Sirius was first visible through the window is when I had the dream of our dog.
This got me obsessed with Sirius and through Wiki got me to Gojira - From Mars to Sirius.

'70s mood today - In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (amazing how great we thought that was back then - and how bad the rest of the album sucks) followed by They Only Come Out At Night (uneven, but with flashes - or flashbacks - of greatness) followed by All Things Must Pass (by far the best ex-Beatle album ever) followed by Wake Of The Flood (much better, now, thanks - but isn't Let Me Sing Your Blues Away easily the worst thing they ever recorded??).

John Scofield's latest CD, Past and Present (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AaklwmCHrRA target=_blank). Actually went to a record store, listened to a couple of CDs. This one stood out, most excellent.
 
Next up, let's see - Steve Gadd Band, 70 strong. Got my copy a week ago at their concert in Zoetermeer, then had to join a queue to get it signed in order to have an all too brief chat with a certain Mr Johnson about stuff Alembic - hey if that's what it takes then I too shall stand in line! Wonderful grooves and changes on this one.

Been jamming to this all morning Wolf - That's a great cut on that one. I would very much like to hear an Easy Wind take on it.  
 
Funny (related) story... one of the bands I often get called to sub with are huge Dead fans, albeit 3rd generation ones. (20-somethings) So we're playing a brewery gig the other night, and one of them finally notices my bass is an Alembic. Dude - that's what Phil plays...!!! Well no, not *exactly* I say, his has Series II electronics... I should have just enjoyed the instant cred, however undeserved. =)
 
I'm in the midst of two weeks of Christmas concerts, and thirsty for anything that isn't holiday related when off-duty, so here's my listening thread entry for today:

One of my kids gave me a coffee table book called Nashville Portraits, a collection of pictures by Jim McGuire.  The caption for a shot of the following-named gentlemen was captioned with a quote by someone whose name escapes me right now:
 
If there was a just God overseeing the world of country music, Joe Ely, Lyle Lovett, John Hiatt and Guy Clark would be selling out concert halls and arenas, and Toby Keith would be selling used stereos out of the back of his pickup truck.
 
Ain't it the truth?

This lady turned me onto John Hiatt back in my young, impressionable Nashville days. She said roughly the same thing about his genius being underappreciated. And something tells me she lived in a house he'd once lived in... I may be confusing that story with someone else she mentioned. Anyway, Kathy Chiavola:

There was a thread on another forum yesterday where you were supposed to post what the first song you ever learned was. I honestly can't remember which was first... it was a bunch at once really, but it was about 1986 that I started playing bass. I would sneak the ol' man's bass out of the case and play along with cassette tapes of music I liked.

When I got my first bass as a birthday gift in 1965 I learned how to play the entire first Byrds LP so I guess Mr. Tambourine Man was the first but I can't be sure.  
 
I have better memory of the first song I learned to play in a band. I was the only person in the eighth grade who even had a bass so I was asked to play with some friends for the Jr. High talent show. When we gathered to rehearse they wanted to learn Twist and Shout. We put on the record to learn it and they were impressed that after one listen I had picked up the intro line. We rehearsed the same tune over and over until we got thrown out of the drummer's house by his parents. The next day was the audition for the talent show and we passed. We were also offered a gig at a dance, little did they know we only knew one song at that point. We ended up winning the talent show and pulling together enough material to play the gig. Rock music was still pretty simple in 1966...

Whoops; sorry folks.  I've been focused on some non-music things and have slacked off on my practicing and listening.  But I'm back to practicing every day, and spent a good bit of time a few nights ago listening to Chopin.
 
Brian; thanks for that wonderful account of Ungud!  I did find Krasnoyarsk on the map.
 
I've probably posted this one before, but here's a wonderful performance of my favorite Chopin piece, Fantasie Impromptu (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-HosIOod_A), played by Valentina Igoshina.  It's just an amazing piece of music.

Peter; I kinda disagree.  Let Me Sing Your Blues Away has a pretty cool chord progression and movement.  Here it is by Jazz Is Dead (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llY-RYmr6W4); listening to this makes me think it would be really fun to play.
 
However, the Dead apparently only played it live six or seven times; so I'm guessing they weren't all that taken with it either.
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: StephenR on December 12, 2015, 03:08:12 PM
I really like Let Me Sing Your Blues Away but unfortunately have only gotten to play it live once. Agree about the chord progression. I don't think the Dead played it much because Keith sang lead, it requires all the vocal harmony parts to sound good and there is a horn solo on the recording. To my ears there is really something special about Wake of the Flood and fall of 73 GD in general.

Absolutely loving the new Terry Adams CD Talk Thelonious which as the title implies is Terry's arrangements of classic Thelonious Monk songs performed by NRBQ plus assorted guests. Some of the most unique, heartfelt and successful interpretations of Monk tunes ever recorded. Who else would have ever thought to have pedal steel on Straight No Chaser? Superb record and recording most of it performed live.

The first song I ever learned to play was actually two old folk songs:  Deep Blue Sea and Oh Mary, Don't you Weep.  The first cool song I learned was Mr. Tambourine Man.  I was 11 or 12 in summer camp.  A counselor taught the song to me and one of my bunk mates.  The two of us stayed up to the wee hours of the morning playing it over and over and over again.
 
As for bad Dead tunes, IMHO, Money, Money, France, and Antwerp's Placebo can give Let Me Sing Your Blues Away some serious competition.

Smoke On The Water.
 
Got my first bass for Christmas when I was 15; my grandfather was there - he was a well rounded musician, huge Eubie Blake fan he would drive my grandmother nuts banging out ragtime songs.  He also played ukulele and harmonica.  I unwrapped the bass, fumbled around and found the notes for Smoke.  I think he was pleased.
 
I now am the caretaker of his old upright piano, cigarette burn on the bench.  I need to learn how to play some ragtime on it in his honor . . .

Actually Michael, I was born and raised in Beaumont, just across the Louisiana line on Interstate 10.  Spent a lot of time in that Houston to Lafayette strip, the heart of Acadiana.
 
So, part of me is Rockin' Dopsie, the Meters and the Wild Tchipitoulas, Wayne Toups, the Nevilles, and I have been to Floyd's Record Shop in Ville Platte.  I actually make Mufalettas here in Nashville when I can find a bread that's close. Three of my favorite cookbooks are the three volumes of TALK ABOUT GOOD!, published by the Junior League of Lafayette, full of Cajun family recipes from regular folks.
 
My mother's family emigrated through New Orleans from Sicily around the turn of the (19th) century: One of my great-grandfather's best friends was Mr. Monteleone, who owned the hotel in the quarter for years.  There's lots Italians and Sicilians in along the Gulf Coast, including the Mandola family who started the CARABBA's restaurant chain, whose food tastes a lot like my family's, since we all came from the same end of Italy.
 
'Nawhlins was always a little much for me, I was never quite that wild, but what a music town.  I was more into the Cajuns, and it will be a regret that I never got to live in Lafayette or Church Point or New Iberia.  I love the food, the people, and it's one of the few places where if you're a musician, the average person honors that, as they love a good party.  I'm really at home there, and I miss going back from time to time.  There's a part of me in those moss-draped oaks and those little bayous.
 
Growing up playing in East Texas and South Louisiana, you had to be able to play a little of everything, so I had to have very sympathetic ears.  It was nothing on a gig to play Texas Swing, Texas Blues, some Domino and Dr. John, some Cajun waltzes and those fast things in 2/4, then some current R&B or white rock and roll, with a dose of George Jones and Elvis.  Never dull, and you had to have a large catalog in the back of your head. And then too, in those late 60's and early 70's there were still the big white R+B bands like the legendary Boogie Kings, GG Shin and the Rollercoaster, and Edgar's White Trash band.
 
Sonnier's 90mph-fastball take on Richard Thompson's 'TSL' is my go-to when I need a jump start, and instantly puts me back in those days and hearing lots of music like that, and what a hoot it was.
 
So I got to admit, as much as I like living in Nashville, alongside of the above . . . . . it can be quite stilted and boring !

For the record, I met Edgar Meyer a couple times... I'm convinced both he, and Stanley Clarke are an alien experiment... they dropped those guys off in Roswell N.M. back in the 50's to usher in the bass age, but the Eisenhower Administration got the translation wrong and thought they meant space age. Area 51 was supposed to be a concert hall all this time instead of a secret... oh nevermind.

Snapping back to reality, 41 years ago this past weekend, (New Year's Eve actually) Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks joined Fleetwood Mac.  
 
This concert from 1975 must be one of their first few appearances with the band. I still love to hear them do World Turning, especially with Christine back in the band. In between Mick's infamous solo drum solo, watch for John's old Series I here... hard to think it was only a couple years old then.

Utopia (1974)
 
http://youtu.be/SSVxGRo9tBU (http://youtu.be/SSVxGRo9tBU)
 
Beethoven fans: There is a musical work of staggering genius hidden in this album, from the collaboration between Todd Rundgren and Moogy Klingman (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moogy_Klingman) (Jimi Hendrix, Lou Reed, Allman Bros., Warren Hayes etc.).
 
It's called The Ikon, and it starts at 28:52 (it was the B side of the album.) The form is based on Beethoven's Fifth Symphony (note the similarity between the opening riff and the famous four-note intro to the Fifth). It also references Rhapsody In Blue, West Side Story and according to Todd Rundgren; Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass.
 
Each movement has a separate theme featuring a particular instrument - everything from balls-to-the-wall blistering guitar (Todd plays the same Gibson SG that Clapton used on Cream's Disraeli Gears) to pastoral piano interludes, to happy Mariachi craziness - and as with Beethoven, each theme/instrument is layered one-by-one in the spectacular finale (in my opinion, the true genius of the piece is in how well those themes go together in a completely unexpected way, leading up to the best ending in rock music history).
 
Bear in mind that the track features three wildly disparate keyboardists: Moogy, Ralph Schuckett (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ralph_Schuckett) and M. Frog LaBat, on early monophonic synths and keys (Moogy alone played; Fender Rhodes, Minimoog, Univox Mini-Korg, a Hammond L-100 organ, Sound City Piano, an RMI Keyboard Computer and Rock-Si-Chord, a Clavinet, and a Yamaha Grand. (http://www.keyboardmag.com/artists/1236/moogy-klingman-on-fighting-cancer-with-music/28464)  
 
The track was recorded live in the studio, with no overdubs.
 
Enjoy.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LvQFMW9-sg (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LvQFMW9-sg)  
 
Robin and Linda Williams are kinda' homefolks around here, and this tune is set in a little, nearly forgotten town about an hour North of Roanoke, Virginia. The town is nestled in an odd canyon-like bowl in the Blue Ridge Mountains, with the small Glen Maury river running through it. It's incredibly scenic from every direction, and there's a music festival that happens there every June I always look forward to.

I meant the lid-less grand piano lying on its side on stage left with the strings exposed, which the blue man whacks with a hammer the size of a tympani, that looks like something out of a Tom 'n Jerry cartoon.  
 
In fact, since it lacks piano hammers and he's hitting the strings, he is the hammer! (I wonder if the piano is difficult to keep it in tune?)
 
I'm not sure it's clear in the video, because we've seen BMG so many times, but here's the DVD of that concert. (http://www.amazon.com/Blue-Man-Group-Complex-Rock/dp/B0000DBJ9P) Everybody should see it at least once, because it's actually a hilarious parody of rock concerts.

The track was recorded live in the studio, with no overdubs.
 
I'm listening now, and I'm wondering if the vocals are all one take as well.  I suppose he could be using a harmonizer to get some of the vocal harmonies, and perhaps some of the other vocal sounds could be vocal patches on the keyboards.
 
I did hear the Herb Alpert reference, or what I think was it.  And I felt a very strong Return to Forever influence; and as well, Emerson Lake & Palmer.  Interestingly, Welcome Back My Friends was released around two months before Utopia; so it seems at least somewhat less than likely that Todd would have heard it prior to the recording date of this piece.
 
the best ending in rock music history
 
Such things are of course quite subjective, and depend significantly on one's own personal history.  Personally, I don't think this one comes close to, for instance, just off the top of my head, And You And I (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1sArhKK7lss); but that's just me.

quote:I'm wondering if the vocals are all one take as well. I suppose he could be using a harmonizer to get some of the vocal harmonies, and perhaps some of the other vocal sounds could be vocal patches on the keyboards.
 
I listened to it again, and I see (actually, hear) what you mean. Considering the album came out forty years ago (whoosh! what was that? Your life, son! Holy cow, that was quick!) details are sketchy.  
 
The liner notes say the album was recorded live at the Fox Theater in Atlanta, Georgia April 25th, 1974, but I remember an Interview with Todd at the time (Creem magazine, I think) where he said something about doing it live in the studio, in one take. Might have been one of the other songs (or the drugs  )
 
There were no harmonizers in 1974 (that I know of, anyway). Synths could only play one note at a time. The Polymoog and E-mu polyphonic synths were still years off (especially the legendary Prophet 5 (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sequential_Circuits_Prophet-5)), so my guess is Todd used a Mellotron (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mellotron)  
 
Mellotrons used tape loops (kinda like an Echoplex, with separate loops for each keyboard key) and could be set up with three voices, usually strings, horns and woodwinds (Strawberry Fields Forever, Nights In White Satin, Stairway To Heaven, etc.), but Rick Wakeman and the Moody Blues also opted for a vocal set, for that Mormon Tabernacle Choir vibe.
 
I turned up this interesting paragraph in a Rolling Stone bio of Todd (http://www.rollingstone.com/music/artists/todd-rundgren)
 
quote:By 1972 Rundgren had taken over production of Badfinger's Straight Up LP from George Harrison (who was involved with his Bangladesh concerts) and had engineered the Band's Stage Fright and Jesse Winchester's self-titled 1971 LP, as well as produced records by the Hello People, bluesman James Cotton, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, and Half-nelson (who later became Sparks). In 1973 he would produce the New York Dolls' debut LP, Grand Funk Railroad's We're an American Band, and Fanny's Mother's Pride.
 
Busy boy, huh? It was three years before he produced Meat Loaf's Bat Out Of Hell, a fact that I didn't know until just now, while looking up this stuff. (The things I do for you people.)
 
Note this interesting tidbit (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bat_Out_of_Hell):
 
quote:Recording started in late 1975 in Bearsville Studios, Woodstock, New York. Roy Bittan and Max Weinberg, the pianist and drummer from Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band played on the album, in addition to members of Rundgren's group Utopia: Kasim Sulton, Roger Powell and John Willie Wilcox. Edgar Winter played the saxophone on All Revved Up. Rundgren himself played guitar, including the motorcycle solo on Bat Out of Hell.
 
So I wouldn't be shocked if Todd sweetened things a little.

Wolf and I are in mind-meld... I was just listening to a Dire Straits compilation last night, as I'm revisiting the bass style of John Illsley, another one of those no-flash, but dead-on doin' the job kind of bass players. I really admire that quality, maybe because of my bluegrass/oldtyme roots.
 
Here's another of my all-time favorites from them... Romeo & Juliet Live from London, with the full symphonic intro.

Gregory , I liked that ; Romeo & Juliet Live from London, with the full symphonic intro.  Dire Straits live is always so enjoyable for me from so many aspects . The thing besides wonderfully mastery of their instruments that always makes me want more of them is the  level of communication going on in the moment . As with the  Dead as with a bunch of players that are really all on the same wave length of non -verbal  MIND -MELD  , in the moment , YES ! That when that is developed it is priceless . When that happens there is a special aspect that is irreplaceable with anything else.

Well, crap. I'm now officially stuck at work. Here in Virginia, or really the entire eastern U.S., there's an indeterminate amount of snow coming in the next 36 hours. I made it in to work before the deluge started, but looks like most either couldn't or bailed. Ordinarily I wouldn't care... just goes with the gig when you run the City's water plant, but man I sure wish I'd brought a guitar or something to play.

Any of you that are in this storm's path - stay in if you can. Stay safe if you have to go out. Avoid the weather channel hysterics, 'cause it's just a freakin' snowstorm for pity's sake. Play a tune for me.

How could I possibly have never seen either of those Joey?! That's great stuff. Down here, we never, ever take the name of Chet in vain.  
 
Day one, shift two. I'm at our BIG water plant until midnight, then back to mine on the other side of town, crash out for a few hours, then I'll get up and try to taxi some of our guys in to work tomorrow. So far - there's 8 inches of New Hampshire Cocaine, Connecticut Confetti, New England Clam Powder... whatever you wanna' call this mess.
 
I have a small confession to make. When it became obvious I was going to be here a couple or three days, I went home and got a bass and my practice amp. And just in case the power grid craps out, I grabbed my old Gibson A-model mandolin. I'm set, bring it on. =)  
 
Here's another Mark Knopfler tune Marbletown... pretty sure this is Glenn Worf on bass. http://youtu.be/rvk5D1iI2LA (http://youtu.be/rvk5D1iI2LA)

Joey , two great vids , thanks !   I remember when  Mark King with Level 42 toured with Tina as an opening act for her in the 80's . She was spectacular . Her performances were outreaching to the concert goers as she made a point to make direct eye contact with as many folks as she could . It was an endearing experience as she looked right in to your eyes and sang just for you just in that moment.  Mark King was as awesome as ever at those shows as well !

@davehouck - Marbletown again, as played by some local folks... (well, local to us anyway) =)
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFCFUzO-EUw (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFCFUzO-EUw)
 
I love how they took Knopfler's little bluesy hook and made it a more central theme to the tune. This is the best sounding carbon fiber guitar I ever heard. (ordinarily, Tim plays a 1934 Martin D-18... I've played it, and yes it's awesome!)  
 
Folks, I'm officially sick of shoveling snow. Thankfully, we were spared the brunt of the storm here, only ended up with a foot, give or take a couple inches depending on where in the region you are. Also helpful, with exception for one of the City snowplows taking out a fire hydrant Friday night, it's been relatively uneventful from a standpoint of keeping the water plants all up and running and keeping water in the pipes.

Nice!  I saw there was another video up of a bluegrass band doing Marbletown.  Is that tune in the bluegrass book?  Come to think of it, does bluegrass even have a book?
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: edwardofhuncote on January 25, 2016, 05:53:30 AM
 No, not in the book per se.  
 
Yes, there are a couple books, but Blue Highway chose instead to write their own book. Those guys have been together for over 20 years now, having formed in 1994. I saw their very first show together at the Down Home in Johnson City, Tennessee, as the band I was playing with back then was HQ'd in nearby Jonesboro. We all knew each other, as the bluegrass community is so comparatively small.
 
Tim Stafford (guitar player) built that band from the ground up after leaving Alison Krauss & Union Station, a tough gig to walk away from even then, as the Grammys had just started rolling in. They quickly established themselves as a one of the very few bluegrass acts to go mainstream. (meaning they actually make a living playing full-time)  
 
It's a little unusual for them to do a cover song like Marbletown though, as they are best known for doing all original songs from within the band. Tim is quite the student of music though (as well as a professor at East Tennessee State University) so it's not surprising he's well-versed in the music of Mark Knopfler. For whatever reason though, they made Marbletown the title cut of an album, next thing anybody knew, a bunch of other regional bands were covering Blue Highway, covering Mark Knopfler. The whole thing hit me funny.
 
Tim's also quite a natural comedian... one of his favorite go-to gags on stage is an impression of Ralph Stanley. First time I heard this laughed til my guts hurt, it's just so spot-on.

Post by: edwardofhuncote on January 26, 2016, 01:39:26 PM
Let me take you back one further Dave... I got to see this evolution happen in real time.
 
Before they were members of the AKUS video you posted, Tim Stafford, Barry Bales, and Adam Steffey were the core members of this band called Dusty Miller. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jz15zYz6m2c (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jz15zYz6m2c)
 
(a very young) Alison met them between band members coming and going, and they just clicked. The only one who remains in Union Station today is Barry Bales on bass. Tim went on to start Blue Highway, and these days Adam Steffey plays with another decorated band called The Boxcars.  
 
It really is a very small musical community... fun to reminisce about those days. We were all coming of age at about the same time in East Tennessee... man, I was having a ball, fresh out of high school, running up and down the highways every weekend playing bass. Fun times! =)

quote:This is the best sounding carbon fiber guitar I ever heard.
 
It's a Composite Acoustics Legacy guitar. (http://www.compositeacoustics.com/index.cfm/guitars)  They're made in Peavey's old factory in Mississippi, by the way.  
 
I prefer Rainsong guitars (http://www.rainsong.com), because I own one. I bought a WS1000 from John Decker when they were still made in Hawaii. It's strictly an apples vs. oranges deal, though. Your mileage may vary. Viewer discretion advised. (What the heck does that mean, anyway? Don't tell anybody?) There are lots of comparison videos on YouTube, knock yourself out.  
 
Rainsongs don't have braces. CAs use Martin X-bracing. Rainsong offers four different composites (including fiberglass/carbon fiber) (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/rainsong#pageName=brand-page&N=201708&Nao=0&recsPerPage=40&v=g&Ns=pHL&profileCountryCode=US&profileCurrencyCode=USD) in five (6?) body shapes and sizes.  
 
The closest to Marbletown's guitarist's would probably be the CO-DR1000 Dreadnaught (http://www.rainsong.com/concert/series.html) (the N2 designation indicates a truss rod and slightly beefier neck).
 
There are quite a few companies making carbon fiber guitars (http://www.guitarsite.com/carbon-fiber-guitar/) (note the date of that article) mainly because they're so much easier to make than wood guitars. Some vacuum molds, an oven, line up some suppliers and watch the money roll in. In fact, lots of people are making their own. (http://www.wired.com/2013/03/making-a-carbon-fiber-guitar/)
 
Whatever you do, don't buy a guitar made with *sodium hydroxide.

I've been recording some original tracks with these two fellas and another of their buddies who is a *killer* drummer. Although the first couple hours in the studio was strictly a seat-of-th'-pants affair that really didn't produce more than just a couple use-able rhythm tracks, the whole thing quickly began to gel into the beginnings of a band. Here's Jake Crawford & Ethan Power doing a cover:
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19IVmxdQgoI (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19IVmxdQgoI)
 
Obviously if it takes off, for appearances sake, if not logistics, they'll need to find a bass player closer to their age, but I'm absolutely having a blast playing with these young-uns for now. The back-story here is actually, I used to run the roads playing music with Ethan's Dad (Ernie Power) back about 25 years ago, before he was even born, and we've been buds ever since. So that's how they found this old guy to sit in on bass. =)

Fleetwood Mac releases Rumours 39 years ago today. This tune is probably the least known on the album, but?it was one of my favorites to hear at the skating rink. I don't roller-skate anymore (or play with bumble-bees) but I do especially like the back-beat bass line McVie played on this one.

Interesting trivia, I Don't Want to Know replaced Silver Spring on the original release of the album. The reason being, long-play records could only fit so many minutes of music, there simply wasn't room. Silver Spring went on to become a B-side hit.?

I've been looking around for stuff to play to help me sharpen up for this alternative country gig... (I really don't like genre' labels)  
 
The guys are covering the Lowell George tune Willin, so one search led to another until I landed on Linda Ronstadt doing it in the mid-70's. It was always one of my very favorites, so I've borrowed a couple textures from Kenny Edwards' lines here.

John Hammond's So Many Roads.  A little known blues album from 1965.  The backing band was a group of mostly up and coming, but then unknown, players.
 
Charlie Musselwhite - harmonica
Robbie Robertson - guitar
Levon Helm - drums
Michael Bloomfield - piano (yes, piano!)
Jimmy Lewis - bass
Garth Hudson - Hammond organ (would you expect Hammond to allow a Farfisa in his band? lol).

Loved the Seatrain take on Willin'... I had almost forgotten about them. Here's former Seatrain drummer Larry Atamanuik with AKUS a few years ago. Lotta' folks (particularly 'round here) don't care for drums with bluegrass instrumentation, but this is a fine example of how it can work brilliantly when done tastefully and not over-played.  
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wR5XOGY8Skk (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wR5XOGY8Skk)
 
Tricky, but super-fun little tune to jam on, IIRC, it was actually written to be used as bumper music for the IBMA Awards Show one year... like maybe '90 or '91. Here's an earlier version of it with a couple of Alison's mentors and eventual band members. Also unusual to see Mark O'Connor on guitar.

One of the few regrets I have in life is that I didn't take up cello sooner than age 32... by which time there were no teachers willing to waste time on adult students, regardless of ability. Anyway, I just couldn't get the crazy idea out of my head, so I bought a beautiful old Johann St?ber (Dutch) cello in pieces and restored it to playing condition. This simple melody is one of the first, and remains one of the few (recognizable) things I can play on it.

I love that tune.  I tried to work it up several years ago with a descending bass line similar to the one in the climatic verse in this version (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDRWdNn_nLk) (which is itself a wonderful arrangement of Simple Gifts setting up a beautiful pastoral movement of chords), but didn't come up with anything worth keeping.  I still would like to work up an arrangement of it at some point.

Strange coincidence... (may, or may not have anything to do with your post) I just posted on another forum a minute ago about the utter disregard for grammar. I guess it's the same as it ever was, just adjusted for inflation. Nowadays instead of sloppy penmanship, it's smartphone and computer lingo, and you still have to decipher what someone meant.  
 
Not that diagramming a sentence ever *directly* helped in my job, but when composing an email, I take a small amount of pride in knowing none of the recipients will have trouble understanding it.

been listening to the new Dream Theater - 'The Astonishing' over the weekend.  It's a double concept album set in a dystopian future where music has been outlawed. As you'd expect there's a lot of 'samey' stuff running through the whole piece with a fair bit of orchestra (and bagpipes!!)  John Myung doesn't seem to get as much space to excite as he usually does but there are a handful of exceptional riffs. I believe Petrucci and Rudess pretty much wrote the whole thing so there is more than enough keys and guitar noodling. That said, so far I'm enjoying it. Will take a few listening sessions to make my mind up fully though.

Post by: sonicus on May 31, 2016, 08:25:28 PM
Dave , yes , thanks for your interest . There is a singer and a few other possibilities of  various singers . The core of this project will be the keyboard player from EASY WIND and myself . We have an interested drummer and a guitarist. There will be a wide scope of very diverse material covered from modal jazz and jazz fusion with classically influenced rock . At the moment it is a lose experiment that we expect to formally launch in the fall with a website and the such and then the pursuit of gigs and even perhaps a booking agent. The keyboard player is a music instructor in the Marin school system and seems to have many interesting friends to come and play with us until we are settled with a definite committed crew of singers and players. We play about once a week and even have some originals already and covers that we are exploring in different forms  and genres of delivery . Yes , I love hearing  Tarja sing ! She has the target voice from my perspective for this project.

Actually, the TT is my in-between after Indy and before LeMans.  Music-wise, well . . . . . .

Every year around this time, I sense the ordering of the planets, a subtle shift in the rhythm of Mother Earth, a vague calling once more comes forth.  By now I know these signs, as now is when the Babylon Sisters shall once again escort me to my spot beneath the Banyan Trees, under the watchful eye of Bodhisattva.  I wave to Hoops McCann while Walter and Donald are counting off the opening tune.  THIS is how I once more know that NOW is the time of my Annual Steely Summer.   Once more to strain to figure out how Chuck Rainey played this one, how Anthony Jackson played that one, and remember how sad I am that Jeff Porcaro is no longer around.  This mania will run its course over the next few weeks,  and then once the fever has ended, I'll take my Big Black Cow and get out of here.

Fun little tune I had to learn for some guys I'm subbing on bass with again this Summer. Some of you may recognize it...

http://youtu.be/TvzarD06Gdo

I grew up playing with fellas that were older than me, and now I've come full-circle... almost everybody I gig with is at least 10-15 years younger. They're all fun to be around, no ego trips or drama, though the front man is hyperactive to a spectacular degree. (I'm talking- the Tazmanian Devil ate a pound of jumping beans and chased them with a 6-pack of Red Bull)

Anyway, their regular bassist and his wife are welcoming a new baby, so having subbed for him before, I got the call again... having an absolute blast with these guys. (and making decent  $$$ too)

 On top of the obvious talent, they’re both naturally funny people too, and maybe the most genuine folks I ever knew in the music business. Though I never played in their band, we used to end up at the same festival venues. Lot of times we’d meet up for a midnight campground jam, and eventually got to be friends. Most memorable is an easy one… in October of 1999, I was sitting alone at our record table one night after a big showcase in Louisville Kentucky. That night should have been one of the highlights of my ‘career’, but due to a chronic illness, an ugly divorce, and the financial ruin that came with both, I was about as low as I can remember being. Sure didn’t feel like partying with the band that night. Kenny and ‘Manda stopped by the table just to say hello, and I guess must have seen through the brave face I was wearing. So they sat down to keep me company awhile, then before leaving, ‘Manda took one of the business cards and wrote their phone number on the back, and told me to call them sometime if I wanted to jam. I didn’t tell them until years later how much that simple gesture meant.
 
Here’s another one Fretboard Journal did that features her voice in the bluegrass equivalent of a chic-flick, and Kenny’s whimsical flatpicking style: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgQUyipLme4

*that old guitar Kenny's playing is a Chicago-made Regal... pretty rare anymore. He buys and restores them for use when they fly somewhere. (his 'other" guitar is a pre-war Martin D-18)

A new find from a CL purchase.  This is a really cool "Local" band, i.e., based out of Nashville.  Dynamo - funky jazz.  They have two albums recorded live in the studio.  Going to see them this Sunday with my brother.  My son wants to go but it's a 21+ club.  They will be playing a few weeks later at an all ages place.  Most of their stuff is instrumental and some has vocals.  The one thing that I can't help comparing them to is Snarky.  But they are really good with touches of their own sound.  I'm sure there is some influence here.

This is great stuff ! I am influenced by this " FULL SAIL " playing !

In the mid 1980's  I  had a girl friend that loved this band. She was from Manchester , England as this band is as well .  She had to go home back to England as a result of an American immigration mistake  !   We were both heartbroken !  One day they just grabbed her and sent her away !!!!!   Governments are NOT conducive to true love !

Carson was IT!  Not only was he funnier than any who have come since, but he made the show about the guests; starting with Letterman, they've all used the guests as props for their own schtick. 


And, while not in my usual range of listening, that was a killer band!

This one is for my neighbors just north of here in Greenbrier County of southern West Virginia. They are suffering in the aftermath of a mighty storm last week... the flash floods that came with it have literally wiped whole towns and communities off the map. You don't really think about mountain towns getting flooded, but believe me, it happens. I've seen the same kind of devastation here a couple times.

Tony Collins, musical mentor, role model, and my best buddy... died one year ago today. Of all the music we played together, precious little of it was ever caught on tape. Here he is doing one of his favorite things - inspiring the next generation of flatpickers. I remember when he and I were about this age... in fact, I first met Tony literally 100 yards from where this video was shot, but almost 25 years ago. It was a rainy night in Galax, Virginia... a quiet little Jazz/Swing jam had started up in the middle of a Fiddler's Convention. I came along with a bass. The rest is history.

Greg Piccolo & Heavy Juice, Red Lights.  I did monitors for Roomful of Blues a couple of nights back when Greg was their frontman, so when I saw this at a thrift store for 99¢, I figured why not?
About halfway in, I'm finding solid blues with a jazzy tinge (as expected) and one reggae-inflected number (not expected); Piccolo sings & plays alto, tenor, and a little guitar, backed by drums, keys, & bass.
Definitely well worth the expense...........

Both links lead to Knopfler, Gregory - and I'm pretty sure (but not quite 100%) that's John Illsley on bass.

I thought so too Coz, (and was actually hoping it was Illsley) but that "A Night in London" lists Worf as bassist. Could be a goof, they do favor each other, both physically and musically.

I was so impressed, Paul.  Those guys are at a point in their career where they can do anything they want, and pass on anything they'd like to avoid, but obviously they were interested to come play with Daryl and his hot house/touring band.  And I'm always fascinated as to whether someone who's played or sung  the same catalog for years and years can still 'bring it' or if they'll just phone it in, and they and Daryl's bunch obviously had a blast.  Wonderful that they look and sound as good as ever, and that kind of 70's soul is still large in my background, that Philly stuff and all the rest.  Daryl grew up idolizing that sort of thing, and it was a hoot that he was just like a little kid singing with them, obviously got to him.  I'm sure I'd have done the same, what legends they are.

Isn't that just a hoot, Dave?  The feeling I get watching and listening to that puts me back RIGHT THERE as to why I EVER wanted to strap one on and have at it.   That buzz that resonates right down to a cellular level in me when I watch something great like that is why I had to try, I was helpless to resist.  A feeling no drink, drug, or anything else could ever even approach replicating.  This sort of performance just makes me float across the room . . . .

Analog Music:  Great singers, great songs, great players, great charts and a take-no-prisoners performance.  The equation never has, nor ever will, change.  This is why so much of what's out there today just doesn't move me.   All this digitized, quantized, time and pitch-corrected (I just love human harmonies with no quaver at all, straight as a keyboard patch . . . . ) crap is where 'the business' is now, and I'm just an old fart cryin' in my beer about 'the old days'.  Pitiful.  I've lived too long . . . . . but glad you liked it.

Joey, thanks for that...I rarely listen to soul and don't have any in my cd collection, but love when I hear the good stuff; it just rules...and I agree on the pitch/time corrected stuff-why would you suck all the MUSIC out of something unless you were just so bad that you can't do it without that 'help'?

I just played a benefit last week and I could barely hear my vocals, Harry couldn't hear his guitar and Doug had to rely on cues from me to keep his drums in line; we were flying half-blind and it rocked! I could tell it was okay because I heard enough onstage but wasn't sure but everyone told me after that we killed it...the pics I've seen from the show even kill; we look like rock stars-old ones, but rock stars...anyway, I have nothing against electronic music but if you have to 'correct' something you probably need to work on something...Tony

I was reminded of these folks recently, during an extended email rant on the influence of Doc Watson. See, waaaay back in 1999, our band and theirs was booked as opening acts at the same music festival... that might well be when my 'thing' for chic-fiddle-players started. I wonder if it might well be where their thing with Doc Watson started too, as he was one of the headliners there.

If music is really universal, I wonder why so many artists who are "on the bubble" in the US play to sold out houses and win the equivalent of multiple Grammys in other countries. I can see that when the music played is decidedly different (e.g. Indian music) but European bluegrass and bluegrass as played in the US are pretty much the same animal. The fact that a band that sells out concert halls in Prague, Vienna, Paris, and Berlin is going to be playing on my lawn for 40-50 people on Saturday amazes me. Now I make a damn good espresso and feed the band members well (no it's not Minnesota food I serve them) but I find it hard to believe that what has kept this thing going for 4 years and three different bands.

I find the history of "house concerts" and the role they played in a number of rebellions/revolutions quite interesting and love the way that our peers in Europe, especially Eastern Europe, have kept the tradition going.

If there's been one lesson that's made it through my thick skull Brian, it's simply this - the Tree of Music is twisted and gnarly, and the few of us that live on the branches of that tree aren't really all that different. I think it's how we ended up there anyway.  :D


Picked that postulate up from a good friend of mine over coffee one morning... traveling musician Steve Keith, who spends half his year playing in New Orleans, and the other half in Nova Scotia, writing playing the *exact same* cultural music. I'd never thought about it before, but the Louisiana Cajuns were exiled Acadians from up there. (Acadian = Cajun, like Indian = Injun) Phonetic faux-pas aside, people carry their music with them, just like family heirlooms. No small wonder Slovic, (and really most of Eastern European) folk music and American folk music mesh so well. David Grisman spent a good portion of his career studying, and incorporating elements of Gypsy Jazz into what became his "Dawg" music. Tony Rice seized upon that, and carried it to the ears of a Bluegrass audience. Two generations later, Bluegrass musicians from both sides of the Atlantic crossover to play festival circuits and/or smaller venues. It's just kinda' making laps around the world now.


In related news, here's my entry to the Listening Thread today: The Band's "Acadian Driftwood", live at Winterland, with a couple guests: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSZv3cOI4kI (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSZv3cOI4kI)

Listened to the whole album this tune comes from a couple times in the car last night, as me and our fiddler made our way home from a l-o-n-g weekend of playing music around the Old Dominion. Tired today, (Mom says it's hard to soar with eagles in the morning when you spend all night hooting with owls...) but I woke up this morning with this one stuck in my head.

@ Dave: yeah, I did a double-take on that news too. I'm excited about who all will be in the new band, since that's pretty much the A-list of Acoustic Americana, but Chris for all his brilliance as a musician, in the role as host... I'm sure he *can* do it, but that will definitely change the dynamic of PHC.

Chris sat in as guest host not too long ago and did a fine job.  No one will ever replace Garrison, but Chris will be a fine start to a new chapter.

Ironicly enough the Haas Kowert Tice group reminds me of Nickel Creek (one of Chris's bands).  The bassist in HKT, is one I will keep my eye on, it was fun watching him play.

<edit>
Well color me silly, doh!
It makes perfect sense that Kowert also plays in the Punch Brothers, no wonder I enjoyed watching his energy as he played.

As a Minnesotan, I'm looking forward to Chris Thiel taking over for Keilor. In spite of his radio persona, Mr. Keilor has a reputation here locally for being "not so nice a person" with among the many incidents...one involving suing his neighbors because their house interfered with his view, and a situation which I personally witnessed during which he verbally abused a flight attendant for 10 minutes because his 1st class airline tickets had him sitting across the aisle from his personal assistant rather than directly next to him. Definitely a person whose fame resulted in him becoming, as my grandma used to say, "too big for his britches."
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: ed_zeppelin on September 20, 2016, 02:41:22 PM
Woo hoo! Finally, some tawdry "celebrity dirt" on Garrison. I've listened to his show since I was a hippie teenager, and now I find out that his humble, old-fashioned "regular guy" shtick was all an act. Somebody should let him know he's joined the ranks of the Kardashians in the glare of the public eye. (Can't wait for him to post one of those fish-lipped selfies on Insta-glam, or whatever the kids call it. I think that would have a lot better chance of "breaking the Internet" than pictures of an airhead's grotesque butt implants.)


The good news is that now people won't feel sad and miss the presence of one of the greatest storytellers of all time, or for the thousands of hours we've spent over the decades welcoming his nostalgic, funny, and inspiring world into our minds every week, because Garrison got a little cranky while traveling. (I can be imagine his mortification at the headline in the National Enquirer: "GARRISON FLIES FIRST-CLASS!")


The first (of four) times the Foghorn and I saw the show live was in a theater-in-the-round in Massachusetts. I had never realized that the "News From Lake Wobegone" just flowed directly from his mind to our ears, without notes or a script to work from. As the story unfolded and the stage slowly revolved, he gradually incorporated audience members from all around the theater into it until he had created another story about them that fit seamlessly into the narrative. It's impossible to describe in words, but in music we call that "Jazz."


Afterward, he, Chet and other cast members hung out in the parking lot for three hours, signing autographs and having their photos taken with every single person who wanted them. (I have all his books and most of the recordings, going back to cassette boots and box sets from the 80's.) Somebody had an In-n-Out Burger t-shirt on, and Garrison rhapsodized about them being the best fast-food burger on the planet, but no match for the monsters Dorothy served down at the Chatterbox Cafe. I remember him saying something like; "theyre not only delicious, but they'll sit up with you all night afterward to keep you company."


Frankly, before this latest glaring example of his boorish prima donna attitude I suspected him of being the psychopath serial killer who beheaded dozens of Lake Wobegone residents a few years back (http://www.theonion.com/article/two-dozen-more-bodies-found-in-lake-wobegon-2695), after he told the story about Carl Krebsbach's 1937 Chevrolet mobile septic tank Homecoming parade float. (https://youtu.be/FnPm9A-FodY) Some instinct told me that anyone who would make up a story about septic tanks on wheels must be "putting on airs," perhaps to impress his rich New Yorker fans (everybody knows he had some).


Thank you so much for informing us that an elderly Minnesotan became "verbally abusive" on an airplane (I'll bet he gave her "the frowning of a lifetime," to boot), but complained about his neighbors, in public. I'm shocked, y'hear?

Ed:  Maybe in your neck of the woods neighbors going around suing each other a lot more than we do here in Minnesota so it's not such an unusal thing. But there really is something behind the idea of "Minnesota nice." As for the incident on the plane, I find it hard to support anyone, regardless of age, who verbally abuses and threatens others in a manner that would make your local high school bully proud to the point where the pilot has to threaten removal.

I listened to a couple of the interviews w/ Bob Weir about the idea for the project too. Very interesting. Love that little Martin 00 he's playing... it's got just the voice for cowboy music.

I'm listening to some old recordings today I did with my buddy Tony Collins several years ago. He would have been 56 today. I ran into him again, in a short dream sequence last weekend... he was sitting in one of those folding canvas festival chairs. I say- Hey man, where you been so long? He says he's been real busy, too busy to pick, but we'll get together sometime.

Here he was playing at a little jam with his kids a few years ago. Guitar solo at 2:10. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67iGEjpSKPs

This was playing in my car a few minutes ago, on this morning's very rainy pre-dawn commute. The melancholy was a perfect match. I love the little fills being done on a fretless bass, but have no idea who played them. It's a Don Henley tune, but this take is from an Eagles live cd.

E-o-H, here's Henley's original album version;  this is essentially Toto backing him, with Pino Palladino on fretless MusicMan, back when his fretless sound was the hot ticket in the 80's (his work with Paul Weller on the cut 'Burn Your Playhouse Down' with the fretless + Boss Octave box was a minor milestone).  After my wife died, every time I listened to this cut, I'd burst out in tears, only recently I can hear it with some normalcy.  Great tune.

After seeing mention of this project in Jimmy's thread, I just listened to this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OobLZJuNvlI).  Dewa Budjana, Jimmy Johnson, and Vinnie Colaiuta.  Great playing from all three musicians; and a really nice piece of progressive music.

My laptop's audio out isn't working, so I had to listen to it on the laptop speakers; still sounded great.  And Jimmy had some really nice breaks.  Hoping to get my sound fixed soon so I can hear this one again through my stereo.

Been listening to this in my shop this week... I love the upright *zing* on these two cuts from Lyle Lovett's 1994 album- "I Love Everybody". I'm not sure, because a lot was happening for me musically at that time, but I think this was a big part of what made me want to string my bass with some Spirocores and explore beyond just the precision-timed roots and fives in bluegrass bands. I pretty much had that down by that time...  :D

I loved the Band.  This version by Robertson differs quite a bit from Levon Helm's in his wonderful autobiography "This Wheel's On Fire" (along with Phil Lesh's "Searching For The Sound", one of the two finest rock autobiographies I've read).  For example, according to Levon, they didn't invite Neil Diamond because "he represented Tin Pan Alley".  Rather, Robbie invited Diamond without consulting the others becase Robertson was producing Diamond's album at the time.  Furthermore, Robbie attempted to kick Muddy Waters off the bill to make room for Diamond (who was the only bad part of TLW, IMHO).  Also, according to Levon, Scorsese wasn't merely an up and coming director whom Robbie had just met.  Rather, Scorsese and Robertson were recently divorced bachelor buddies, sharing a house, women, and lots of coke at the time.  And I question Robbie's accuracy in claiming they were all junkies except for him and Garth.

Maybe my favorite take from TLW... "Ophelia"- http://youtu.be/4RjqcTsxx-8 Love the bass part against the horns. It's hard to tell it from the tuba at times. ;D

That made my day Paul!  ;D

The bass part on Billie - Jean is quite a handful. I had to learn it once for a Harwell-Grice Band gig... well, to be honest, I learned just enough of it to sell it to anybody who didn't actually know better.  ::)

I've been listening to John Hartford a lot this week, specifically his tributes to West Virginia fiddler Ed Haley. Our neo-oldtyme band New River Bound is working up an arrangement of "Boatmen" and several other tunes heavily influenced by Haley's touch: http://youtu.be/zICScsv3yqk

Hartford was a deeply introspective guy. Maybe that isn't the right word either... he was a multi-faceted player, more like three musicians rolled into one, and you could never be certain which guise he might be in. Here he was with the late-great Roy Huskey Jr. doing his signature song, Gentle On My Mind: http://youtu.be/PfBhVoU6dM4

I can't find it right now, but Hartford's eulogy for Husky was one of the most interesting things I ever read about a fellow bass player.

Love John Hartford!  I used to see him play often when I lived in SoCal in the early to mid 70's.   First time I ever saw a stomp board.  Here's one of his more amusing tunes:

Post by: edwardofhuncote on October 26, 2016, 03:43:45 PM


John Hartford, who delivered one of several touching eulogies at the bassist’s funeral, employed a young Huskey in his famed string bands of the ’70s. Huskey used to explain to the banjo player how he heard music in colors. He even constructed a color wheel for Hartford to show how he aligned certain notes with certain colors. Later on, Hartford came across an old book that traced the beginnings of musical notation. The earliest transcriptions were notated in colors, he discovered, and the colors were the same ones that Huskey had used to explain different notes.

“Roy had perfect pitch,” Hartford explains. “But his gift was more than that. He could tell the note that the sound of a room was in. He’d walk in a place and say, ‘This room is in this or that note,’ or ‘You better watch A in this room.’ He also could go around a room and detect where the best spot was for music. He’d find just the spot where music would sound the best, and he’d be right. He had one hell of an ear.”

Like many others, Hartford also remembers how Huskey tended to make everyone onstage feel more comfortable. Because his father was the late Grand Ole Opry bassist Junior Huskey, the younger Huskey grew up around well-known musicians, and he had an unflappable sense of calm that influenced those around him. “You’ve heard of medical people having a good bedside manner,” Hartford says. “Roy had what I call a good bass-side manner. He had a way of putting you at ease.”

For all the talk of his perfect pitch and his great ear, the thing that made Huskey such a great player was his feel for the music—his ability to make a song come alive. “He was just so on target,” Hartford says. “It wasn’t that his playing was that unusual. It’s just that it always fit, and it was always exactly appropriate.”



Taken from this 1997 article: http://www.nashvillescene.com/arts-culture/article/13001702/closer-look

In another account of Huskey's perception of musical notes in color, Roy claimed that he could tell the last note of the universe was pitch black, or Bb. Turns out, that's exactly the frequency emitted by a black hole, some 57 octaves below middle C.

Now that's deep. Literally.

Aereo-Plain (recorded by the Dobrlic Plectoral Society - Hartford, Vassar Clements, Tut Taylor, Norman Blake, and Randy Scruggs - but credited to John) has been on my "Desert Island" list for over 40 years (first heard it the first night I dropped).


Saw him solo (opened by New Grass Revival) in '76, and it was amazing.  Yes, Bill, he had the plywood -and started late from arguing with the soundman about how to best mic it.  I forget who said this when he passed, but it captures him exactly: "John Hartford always had one foot in the past and one foot in the future - and they were both dancing!"

I've always loved the Beethoven symphonies, but I've often found myself wishing the recordings matched what I thought of as Beethoven's power.  This evening I found a recording that brought the power (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_xS8OLQYI0).

I was going to cook dinner, when I thought that I would like to listen to a long piece of music while doing so; and I thought of the Sixth Symphony, which has long been one of my favorite pieces of music, and which I haven't listened to in quite a while.  To hear it in the kitchen, I turned it up really loud.  By the time I got back upstairs, the third movement was beginning; and I left it really loud.

Then came the fourth movement, the thunderstorm.  And while I did have the stereo up really loud, a lot of the power of the storm seemed to me to come from the recording.  And if you like bass, and I think a few of you do, this is powerful bass.

But the entire symphony is wonderful, and it was a joy listening to this recording of it.

If you haven't heard the Sixth Symphony in a while, now would be a good time; and if you have a nice stereo, turn it up.

Nice one Coz, thanks for that flashback moment! Here's to 'the road not taken'.  ;D

I'm actually listening to several versions of "Not Fade Away" for a wedding reception gig this weekend. Oddly, I'm looking for something that does a little better job supporting the guitar rhythm since these guys don't have a drummer. Unless you count their banjo player... 'cause after all, a banjo ain't nuthin' but a snare drum with a neck stickin' out the side.  ;D

Seriously, just trying not to overthink this one. Here's Stevie Nicks take on it: http://youtu.be/UbndfXPU6AU

*Don't remember the model, but it was the 4-door land barge with the back window that went down like a station wagon.  This was very helpful, as it turns out that kneeling on the back seat with the package shelf as an elbow rest was much easier than leaning out the passenger window when shooting mailboxes & road signs.  Or so I'm told.

While searching for something different, I ran across a copy of one of my favorite LPs that I hadn't listened to for years because of the ease of just playing things on my computer - At Fillmore East, by the Allman Brothers.

Spent the day driving around with an old friend, actually my childhood sweetheart. We grew up together here back in the 80's but have stayed close all these years after the teenage romance thing ran out. She lives in Southern California these days, but came home to Virginia to visit some of her remaining family this week. (and me I guess...  ::))

Anyway, it was another beautiful Autumn day here, perfect for driving around. After 35 years, there really isn't much conversational ground left to cover... it's just nice to hang out. We listened to this whole CD, but this one funny little tune stayed in my head. The bass part is maddening - can't wait to try it at home!

Hey Coz, curious... do you know what is the small-bodied guitar Jim Post is pictured with in the "Wendigo" video? Picture is a little fuzzy, but it looks to be about a size 1 or 2, and appears to have a Martin/Stauffer-style pyramid bridge.

Our neo-oldtyme band New River Bound is finishing up tracking and beginning final mixes on our project next month. (January) The tune we've kinda' leaned towards as a 'title cut' is an original called "'Til Winter Breaks". I've been trying for a while to come up with a bass counterpoint to the guitar intro, because it just seemed so stark alone. The other day I heard James Taylor's "Millworker" again, and was deeply inspired... going to come up with something along those lines. :)

It's just so much more with that bass part underneath. Hope Jimmy J won't mind me borrowing a couple textures from it.  ;D

Like I said, Greg, he's an old friend -  I haven't seen him in way too long, or seen him play in even longer (I'm talking decades).  I never saw him with anything other than a Gurian, and that ain't it.  I need to look him up one of these days; when I do I'll ask him.


And now, just for the sheer WTF factor:

I've always liked this song for the lead guitar part, and it just came to mind as I was thinking of trem bars.  Wonderful touch on the trem, and beautiful tone.  Found a nice live take; Wicked Game (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOjTweUPt3Q).

And here's the same tune with the original guitar player, James Wilsey (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Uw4V5yt1-w).

Post by: cozmik_cowboy on December 07, 2016, 08:33:21 AM
Love "Wicked Game", Dave! Chris has a lot of good stuff, but that one, IMHO, is his masterpiece!

I found a good one on Netflix:  Loreena McKennitt.
Concert from the Alhamba; chick singer whose speaking accent suggests 'Murkin/Canuck, but her stuff is firmly Celtic-based.  Besides singing, she alternates between grand piano, accordian, & harp (Celtic, not mouth).
Her band has 4 percussionists (traps, mounted, hand drums, and tablas), bass (alternates between electric & doghouse), cello, violin (both carbon fiber), a strange Arabic thing - 3 strings, bowed, held upright in the lap, scale about 10", hurdy-gurdy, zither, and, at various times, electric & acoustic guitar, octave mandolin (or could be a bouzouki), viola, clarinet, keys, and 2 lutes. I may have forgotten some........
A pleasant hour+

Back around '70-'71, my friend Crazy Mike put a used 8-track in his '64 Mercury; it came with 3 tapes.  While I preferred both Fever Tree's eponymous debut & Sly & The Family Stone's Greatest Hits, we spent many a backroad mile digging Tarkus.  It's been a bad, bad year.

And thanks for the line - up, Dave.  I was close - probably distracted by Ms. Lavelle & the "Leda And The Swan" imagery she provoked......

Worst of it is, I have to train my own replacement here first. Oh well, it's been a good run here... alas, just being necessary doesn't necessarily make you important. Besides, I make a good cog in the machine. (for another 7-1/2 years anyway)

That blackbird album is the most 'bluesy' of their albums.  The others are much more reggae/ska/R&B inspired.  I went to a lot of their live shows while living in NZ. So good live.

You're definitely soaking in the right stuff Elwood!

Between you and I, carved basses sing in a beautiful voice, but tend to be very high-maintenance ladies. My main bass for 25 years running is a pre-WW2 German import, that even though laminated, will hang with the best of them. The carved bass is (perhaps) 80-100 years older, and never leaves the house.

I haven't listened, or even tried to play any music for a solid week now. Yesterday and today, I've spent reading, and just trying be still. Keeping warm as possible so I can (hopefully) be ready to go back to work tomorrow morning. (it's near single digits here and there's about 6" of snow leftover from Friday night)

This is one was written and recorded back when the band was probably at it's peak, but unfortunately wasn't released until a 20 year anthology (of sorts) came out. It used to be situated at the head of the second set.

I always thought the video to this one should've been a Southwestern theme, with us portrayed as Mariachis playing in a little cantina, the backdrop for a main theme of someone learning to drive. The subject car would of course be a Chevy El Camino.  ;) 

*come to think of it, Minor Swing might be a good one Coz... we'll have a guest fiddler, Billy Hurt (who was actually in the band for a while after I left) who can do quite a bit of justice to that little tune!

I love the way this thread takes odd turns.  :D

This Simon & Garfunkel tune came up at Acoustic Endeavors' rehearsal last night, as a possibility for the upcoming reunion show. I vaguely remember us doing it for soundchecks back in the mid-90's but for the life of me can't remember it being in a setlist.  Anyway, it's a nice tune that'll cover well.

Fantastic stuff Caveman.  ;)

One of the (few) things I miss about living in Nashville, even back in my day (20 years ago) there was always something interesting going on somewhere in town. The tourist-y stuff was really kinda' confined to either Opryland or Broadway & Printer's Alley, and largely seasonal at that, but if you looked around the message boards at Vanderbilt or Belmont, there was plenty else happening. You just had to know where to look. One of my hangout-n-jam buds was a student at Belmont, working on a degree in Music Business, and always seemed to know. Ah, glory days...  ;D

The enjoyment is shared with the audience every time I have seen them.  They record live in the studio with a small audience (that helps offset the production cost).  A new album is coming out soon. 

And check out these from another recording session.  The trombone player is bad to the bone!

On deck for me, Fleetwood Mac - Rumours.

Today -by the way- is the 40th Anniversary of it's release. It remains one of my all-time favorites to this day, one of the few albums I can just hit the <play> button and walk away. The title was actually suggested by bassist (and fellow Alembican) John McVie. It was said after listening to all the tracks, he declared, "...it sounds like a bunch of rumours." And so it was.  8)

Departed Master at work.  Jones. 

Classic Nashville rhythm track:  Quarter-notes with the kick under the verses, dotted in the choruses.  Notice the Nashville convention for this kind of chart where you root/five/root, but when the chords are going to change, in the bar before you go root-root.  Walkups and downs at phrase ends.

This kind of thing would fill the dance floor in one of those big Texas saloons with the basketball court-sized wooden dance floors, with all those cowboys dancing 'backwards in a circle' on a Lone Star Saturday night.  I do miss that . . . . .

This song has been around.  Similar take on George Strait's PURE COUNTRY soundtrack.

In the words of WSM deejay Eddie Stubbs, 'Country Music, don't you miss it?'

Yes.

Joey
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: edwardofhuncote on February 04, 2017, 02:49:42 PM
Absolutely.  ;)

I bought groceries by playing that root-five-root routine during my time in that town, all credit to my roommate at the time, Ernie Sykes, for showing me those ropes. He was a contemporary of Eddie Stubbs, both were walking country music encyclopedias. Ernie was in Monroe's Bluegrass Boys at the time, and Eddie had just started at WSM not long before. (he had been a deejay at a big station in Northern Virginia... WAMU I think...)

As an aside, it was one Sunday afternoon down near Broadway & 2nd Av. (making some grocery money) that I first encountered this guy playing an Alembic bass, a Distillate 5-string. He was kind enough to let me play on it for a minute during a break. I had never seen anything quite like it... it was more than just a bass - this thing was a work of art.  At the time, I knew a little of the storied past, but didn't realize Alembic was still in business. Wish to the world I could remember his name... never saw him or that beautiful bass again, but I never forgot that moment either.

Good stuff Dave. I might never have found that without this thread! Golly, how does one go about even learning something like that?  :P

Alas, I'm stuck in a rut of listening to old recordings (and very little else) trying to mentally prepare for this upcoming Acoustic Endeavors reunion. Rehearsals are not going very well, and I'm starting to wish we'd just not done it this year... or at least, that I hadn't agreed to do it. Good to see everybody and all, but we just can't reproduce that stuff credibly anymore. Trying to do two sets of original music by the seat-of-the-pants with only a couple practice sessions... was a losing strategy from the start. As that reality sets in, the general mood is getting darker. Hard to play well under that pall.  :-\ 

I'm going to suggest a potluck supper next year.  8)

Anyway, the Alembic Club Listening Thread is an inspiring bright spot in an otherwise cloudy day.  :)

We're supposed to have another tonight and iron out what will or won't make the list. Also just heard, there'll be an opener for 30 minutes too, so that gives us a little relief.

I think the thing that's confounding me most is, the rest of the core members are picking obscure songs we either never did live at all, or very seldom did, rather than picking from the meat-n-taters set we used to do. I'm going to take a firmer stance against that tonight.

About two weeks ago I mentioned George Harrison's Woman Don't You Cry For Me from his 33 1/3 album.

Well that song has been bouncing around my head for the whole two weeks.  Two days ago I got clearance from my new boss to wear headphones while doing certain tasks at the computer to help me retain my focus (work in a room with 4 people who are in Product Development - they talk a lot and can be distracting).  So I brought my removable hard drive with all kinds of stuff and slapped on the whole album 33 1/3 -  I can't think of enough nice things to say about Willee Weeks.  Listening on headphones really highlights his mastery of subtle yet effective pocket bass playing . . . . kind of a John McVie in his own right.   ;)

My favorite 'Grapevine', makes Marvin's a little square, and Fogerty's way-too-white in a flannel shirt sort of way.  Gladys' only record for Motown before she changed labels.  The Funk Brothers in their stride and this is a real one-song education in Jamerson, who's all over the place and yet impeccably right. 

I was born in '55, and so this was exactly the thing on the (AM) radio that made me want to play bass as I was a kid when this and the British Invasion and the West Coast records were what flooded my brain.  Amazing to think that so many of these 60's records sounded so good as they were cut by mostly jazz players making money knocking off these little pop records in Detroit, LA, and NYC.  Jamerson, Bob Babbitt, Carol Kaye, Osborne, and later Cogbill, Duck Dunn, and David Hood, their lines in those songs was just irresistible to me . . . . .

Just discovered this semi-local group (they are actually all from our southern neighbor Iowa) The Pines.  Although described by Red House records as "post-folk," I'll just say they do some nice, thoughtful music and let others decide if they feel the need to label their genre.  not what I typically listen to, but a nice change of pace for me.

This buddy and me swap videos of guitars back and forth, particularly vintage Martins. This morning he sent me this one of Tommy Emmanuel covering "Purple Haze" with a pre-WWII Martin D-18.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBOJmaxW5FE

It doesn't say, but the white plastic tuner buttons tell me that's a wartime model made somewhere between 1942-1945. Most of Martin's wartime Dreadnoughts also have ebony neck reinforcement, which (I think) gives them a slightly different sound... something in the attack/sustain... hard to define. They are noticeably lighter-weight, so maybe that's a clue.

I was too focused on his playing to notice the actual guitar much.  I especially liked that climb in the bass, E-G-A-C, with the use of his thumb, while his first finger is doing G-E pull-offs on the first string; left and right hands both doing cool stuff there to make that happen.

That was fun, Gregory - but the little I could see of the sides is dark enough I wouldn't rule out D-21.

Post by: edwardofhuncote on February 15, 2017, 04:51:07 PM
I'm forced to admit you may be right Coz... it could be a D-21.

It surely has that Brazilian rosewood *zing*, but if so, it's also newer than we (me and aforementioned buddy) thought. Style 21 wasn't available in a Dreadnought until 1956. And those white button tuners just scream wartime. Of course they could've been switched too, but then the question becomes why put such obviously incorrect tuners on a fairly rare guitar.  ???  The video quality isn't sharp enough to tell if it has metal bushings for the posts... that would at least be conclusive, as the wartime guitars are the only ones without.

Doesn't look like the right color tortoise 'guard for a '42 either. Looks more like that god-awful reddish '47-'49 stock. (My 1950 is almost totally black, with little purple-ish swirls) Again, could've easily been switched.

Sure looks like an ebony fingerboard and bridge too, which would eliminate 21... Style 18 had ebony trim until about 1948, when it was switched to rosewood trim, Style 21 followed suit.

Shoot... part of me wants it to be a hosed-up D-21 now!  ;D  Whichever it is, good golly, that guy is haulin' the tone out of it by brute force.

I spent some time yesterday evening trying to figure out what tuning she's using for that... it's kinda' like a banjo tuning with a bass drone instead of a high note. Weird, but very cool!  8)

I liked her take on Rain & Snow. Very soulful. And the guitar solo was very much a Clarence White-infused jam.

Rick Wakeman (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgd3eo-0v98).  This is a concert from 1990, and I found it to be a very good demonstration of how Wakeman uses layering of sounds and movement through scenes as part of the overall composition.  There are a number of cameras, which make for great viewing of Wakeman's playing.  I like how he used pedals to hold the chord on one keyboard as he transitioned to another bank of keyboards for the next section of a piece.  It's quite wonderful to watch.

Argus was a favorite for me; the first four Wishbone Ash albums are all good.  When I first heard the first song on the first album I was impressed with their sound; twin lead guitars, a great drummer, and wonderful bass.

Love that one. 'Time Was' and 'Blowin' Free' are my favorite tracks from Argus. I completely agree that the first four albums are their best, though I'm looking for a copy of their fifth, 'There's the Rub,' as Persephone is one of their greatest tunes.

Very nice!  As an Appalachian-American my own self, it sounds like home.  While I, alas, have no memory of him, I'm told my Great-Grandfather Harvey Gerlach was once the premier fiddler & harmonicist in the environs of Mudsock, WV.

Jenny has a YT channel as TheHotViolinist, where she has some nice nice living-room vids with her guitar-playing (and just as lovely) sister.

Ernie Sykes & Mandy Barnett:  https://youtu.be/sAYtCqvlr-Q

Ernie and I shared a little house in Hendersonville, Tennessee back in the mid/late-90's... he had an Opry gig (with Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Boys) and I was in a band that had just taken the leap breaking into the scene. Ernie was a big influence, not as much on my playing, but how to conduct business as a bass player. He introduced me around to everyone in town during those couple years... really went out of the way to show me 'The Ropes' of Nashville.

I just got word yesterday, he's suffered a stroke. Been thinking about him since, and wishing I had stayed in closer touch.  :(

Anyway, Ernie is a fantastic singer and bass player, and a walking encyclopedia of Country Music (as was) I hope he'll be okay...   :-\

Chick Corea, Christian McBride, Kenny Garrett, and Roy Haynes.  This piece starts with McBride's bass solo, and ends, abruptly, with Haynes' solo, when apparently they decide there's no point in going on from there.  I've long appreciated Garrett's playing, and here it's inspired.  And Corea is, well, Corea.  From the 2010 Freedom Band (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V39lXlaj830) tour.

Another candid video of my good buddy Tony Collins, made one rainy afternoon in Galax, Virginia. The tune, "St. Anne's Reel", was one of his favorites to get on and ride. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lektuagD3VQ

Since he's been gone, I have this weird recurring dream where I'm walking along, and suddenly there's Tony on a festival chair (like in this video) with his cased guitar next to him. He says, "hey man, where you been!? I've been wanting to pick a tune... go get your bass." and then I wake up. Dang I miss that guy.  :'(

Here's today so far:
The Lark Ascending - a version I pulled off of an archive radio station file; violin and piano - 16 minutes of heaven.

Anvil - This Is Thirteen; cause who wouldn't listen to Canadian Metal after classical music?

Bill Wyman - Monkey Grip Glue;  Jagger and Richards who???  This album has great songs with clarinet solos, banjoes, horns, groovy shoewop back up singers.

Ronnie Wood - Now Look

This Thursdays work listening list:
Ron Carter - Pastels;  forgot how good this disc is, plus the headphone factor makes everything better.  Woolaphant - has at least 2 bass lines,  the guy has great tone, only seen him live once, he had great tone then also - imagine that!
Thunder Clap Newman - Hollywood Dreams; this was produced by Peter Townshend. Fun disc, cool muted, thunky bass playing.
Michael McDermott - 620 W. Surf; back sometime in the 80's I was letting life knock me around and mostly down. This was one of those albums that was a shelter in a stormy period.  Listening back to it these days brings both pain and joy.  music - the things it can do.
Finished the day with a friends group

Wow... died while onstage. You know... I'd as soon it weren't while I was onstage, but if I gotta' go while at a gig, then I hope I'm playing bass at the top of my game, on the last song, of the last set. It's what I loved most in the whole world.     

I'm going to go dig out my Boston cds now.

Since Jonathan's post on Thursday, I've been watching Boston videos, some from back in the early days, but many recent shows as well.  Of the recent stuff, most isn't good quality video, though the band is very good.  I did find this pro-shot from the Boston Strong (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-ZT8CDj-A4) benefit in 2013.  Twenty minute set; very enjoyable.

I NEVER get tired of that song. Jack is truly a craftsman at creating bass lines, then you put a tool such as that into his hands and that video shows what happens.

 I actually don't recall seeing that version before and Jack's phrasing/ creativity brought a few goosebumps.  Thanks for posting that Wolf!

Front Porch Magic (Bootleg)

This is an unreleased disc from about 4 years ago - A reunion of The Smiling Faces (a band from high school).  We were tucked in the far Northwoods of Wisconsin 'off the grid' at the drummers cabin.  The weather was warm for the time of year; whiskey, weed and what not were in play.  Two acoustic guitars,  a mandolin (yours truly) and a percussionist playing rocks, empty whiskey bottle, guitar case and plastic water bottle.  We covered old tunes, new songs and material never written before and most likely never repeated. 


The moments caught on the Zoom 4 up there are priceless (for us) and reveal that bond that occurs amongst friends, not only the music but the between song banter of what a "good time" sounds like.

Wearing my headphones here at work there were things that made me laugh to the point of tears in my eyes . . .   I think my co-workers are talking about me!

West of Minocqua . . . . wander down highway 70 about 20 minutes and then turn into the Chequamogen National Forest.  Been in his family since the 40's, a little slice of heaven it is.  Now I live just about an hour from it (used to be 4+). 

Is your son still in the area?

 No, he graduated from Northland College in Ashland in '07 (during during his time there he spent a year in a complex of cabins called the Golden Fleece (guy collected different styles of cabins - Swedish, Norwegian, etc - moved them to this place, & rented them out to neo-hippie students & that ilk), spent a summer working as a researcher for NPS on Madeleine , then moved to Alaska, where he remains.

Our neo-oldtyme band, New River Bound started working on this gem at practice last week. Our guitar player has been playing around with alternate tunings and really liked the big sound of open G.

And a live cut: https://youtu.be/UjOaKb-Z5bQ

Since there's no bass part, I have a clear slate to work with, and am trying to borrow some textures from Jimmy J's counterpoint lines on James Taylor's "Millworker". Unsuccessfully, so far.  :(

You just have to imagine that tune with an Appalachian string band interpreting it for fiddle, banjo, guitar and bass. Exactly that arrangement, but without the brogue. A very literal translation.

That's right, ladies and gentlemen, the world capital of steel pan education is DeKalb, IL.  Whoda thunk it?

30 years ago today, (no way!) Fleetwood Mac releases "Tango in the Night". Back when MTV really was Music Television, I remember the news being exciting, followed by the disappointing announcement that Lindsey Buckingham was leaving the band before the supporting tour.

The show went on though, with Rick Vito and Billy Burnette stepping in on guitar and vox, respectively.

John's bass part on this one still wears me out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1iggSFkGODk

The first upload from the Buckingham/McVie album:

https://youtu.be/VwBy3TvzPEU

So just reading up, I gather this was supposed to be the new Fleetwood-Mac album, but apparently Stevie Nicks couldn't devote time to the project due to her own tour schedule... so rather than sit on a project already 'in the can', they're going to present it as just what it is- a collaborative work. Nice to hear John and Mick as always, but it sometimes takes me a while to process Lindsey's music. Hopefully Christine's contributions won't require as much focus.

Sometimes I just want to listen recreationally.  ::)

Yes!

Interesting observation... ;)

I hadn't heard it as much that way, but more as an extension of "Say You Will" from '03, and this track from the more recent "Extended Play" EP.  https://youtu.be/xrRhMI22-UI

In the heart-of-hearts I'm a sentimental fool that's just tickled to see them still making music together. (and desperately hoping I can still contribute something at that stage in life) And I most definitely need to spend more time listening to the pre-1974 iterations of them, if only for the broadened lexicon.

Now, where'd I leave my copy of "Bare Trees"...?

My first impression is that it has the classic Fleetwood Mac sound with cleaner (more modern) production, I'd like to hear the rest of the album :)



"Classic Fleetwood Mac sound"?  It has Green & Kerwin????

Sounds okay - clean production, etc...(although the treble seems hyped up to me) but i just don't think it's that good a song. Weak hook, predictable changes, kind of nothing melody. Drums and bass, as always always always always, rock solid. I get a little tired of Lindsay's triple-every-guitar-part approach, and the vocal doubling/tripling/quadrupaling take away the intimacy. Definitely in my "meh" list. At least according to the fans replying on youtube, i'm in the minority on this.

They were, in my view, three different groups; the Peter Green period, the Buckingham/Nicks period, and the middle period.

My two favorite Mac albums are Future Games and Bare Trees from the middle period group; and the line up on both was Kirwan, Welch, McVie, McVie, and Fleetwood.  Probably 99% of Mac songs that I listen to are from those two albums.

Here is the title cut from Future Games (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SL6PWUq1vqA).  I would guess that these two albums were Danny Kirwan's must creative period.

True Story; Porter Wagoner's dressing room at The Opry House had a sign on it... "This is Porter Country - Take Off Your Hat". No idea what the story was behind that one, but my room-mate who had an Opry gig pointed it out to me once.  :-X

Nice selection from a "Childsplay" concert, featuring Aoife' O'Donovan on vocals. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WAncoe6bF80

All those fiddles were made by a violin-maker Robert Childs. Every so often the people who play his instruments make recordings and put on concerts.

Bill is amazing. I used to seem him weekly at the 1369 Club in Inman Square, Cambridge in the early 80s. He'd play every Saturday afternoon and get pretty soundly ignored except by an enraptured few. He's a national treasure.

And for anyone who lives in Colorado, his teacher, Dale Bruning still teaches. Dale is also amazing. He was Dizzy's guitarist for a while and is a master in the vein of Jim Hall. Bill and Dale's duet double album is a must have, complete with Gary Larson cover.

Andy's an interesting kid... one thing we have in common - he didn't really take an interest in playing until his late-teens, but it just kinda' consumed us both at that age. Andy's Dad (who is actually my 2nd cousin) and I get together for some music a couple times a year. Very different backgrounds but that really adds to the experience. 8)  I was just down there last weekend, but Andy had a gig a couple hours away and couldn't make it back for the jam at Graham's place, but left me a copy of the cd.  ;)

Peter, condolences. Tears for a friend are good for the soul.

Just got done listening to 10's of thousands of bees.  Our first foray with honey bees in the Northwoods of Wisconsin is successful.  Three hives made it through a looonnng winter, and now are bringing in pollen and nectar and queens laying eggs!  We kept bees for many years when we lived in the city, but they were never on our property.

Seriously, the hives sing and the bees dance,  sometimes it is an angry song, mostly it is calm, sometimes it is a hum (not a buzz) a true humming (must have forgotten the words).  We sing to them also, and tell them when we have lost a loved one, for they are tuned in to the vibe of creatures around them.

And I forgot; Saturday we saw a portion of the Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra do one of the Brandenburg Concerti (I disremember which, and am too lazy to go downstairs for the program), then the full KSO with the DeKalb festival Chorus (which includes several of our friends) did Beethoven's 9th.

Pulled out some old LPs today if only just to remember what I've got stashed  in my collection that's on vinyl.  I have to admit that it just sheer laziness on my part and a lack of organizational skills (I have no idea where a lt of this stuff is stored in my house) that stops me from listening to music on vinyl more often.

I came across Matador and Idle Moments by 1960s jazz guitarist Grant Green.  God he was good and I totally had forgotten about his work.

And how well you know me, Greg!  I was already looking forward to my August drive to Denver to see the grandkids there, but now I know I'm eating at Cracker Barrel on the way - just to buy Alison's new album!

In the mid-80's, the guitar player I was playing with invited me over to watch the movie Dune.  He pointed out that his favorite part of the movie was the song that played during the credits at the end, and I had to agree.  That song has remained a favorite.  Toto - Take My Hand (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRzVFlZxBv4).

In Washington DC to meet with US Dept of State about disability rights and while taking a walk during the evening just happened to walk in to a concert by the Marine band on the grounds of the Capitol. Certainly not what I typically listen to but the band did a great job with everything from John Phillip Sousa (“Manhattan Beach) to Danse Bacchanale from Samson et Dalila, to the Overture to Tsar Boris.

In 1984 I was Stage Manager for Big Twist & The Mellow Fellows.  That line-up (there were about as many Mellow Fellows as there were Mothers or Bluesbreakers) had Sid Wingfield on keys; I have always considered him one of the great masters of the B-3.  Seems he can play a little piano (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbH-ToI-8Lk), too.  And despite what it says at 00:42, his name is Sid Wingfield, not "Sig Winfield".

Still fascinated by how bluegrass music seems to have grown roots everywhere... I guess if anything, it sort of proves what I've long thought- music is a language, with many dialects. The Malina Bros. learned to 'speak' bluegrass, and learned it quite well.

I'm listening to Fleetwood-Mac's "Mirage" album this morning, which was released 35 years ago today. Lindsey Buckingham borrowed a theme from Pachelbel's "Canon in D" for "Eyes of the World". Always made me smile when nobody could figure where they'd heard that before.  :)

According to that guy, we all have been - at one tune or another.  ;D

He's right though... cello lesson #1 is 'halling' long sustained notes until you learn to get the correct amount of bow pressure. It also makes you work on intonation. "Canon in D" is the perfect example.

This album had a huge impact in my early days as a bassist, my brother had the vinyl and I had the music book for the whole album with the bass parts in it!!! (wish I still had that).  Playing along with it built confidence.

Anyhow, the album has a few tracks that have seen far too much radio play - none the less, listening to this today reminds me of the joy that this album brought to a pimply faced bass player rocking out in his parents basement:

And this was absolutely wonderful.

Tedeschi Trucks Band and Friends and Mad Dogs & Englishmen (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QArOU_LW5v8)

I found it rather moving; a very fitting tribute to, and in the spirit of, the original.

Back to Tony Rice - anything I can find, but more often than not, Manzanita.

That is a very good idea for this morning. The whole album is tops, but here's Tony playing the title cut as a solo.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFBWOvSuCE8

That seals it. I'm taking the Martin to the cabin this weekend.
Have a great Canada Day/4th of July weekend everyone!  Stay safe and keep your family close.

What??  You'd consider going to the cabin without the Martin???  That's just crazy talk!

I'm digging a little bit of whimsy  (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXQS4S3vgGA)this morning.

Have I mentioned previously that I love me some Hiromi? 

A really, really, really cool take on Pachelbel's Canon.  If the metal ruler thing doesn't do it for you, it's only a short section of the song.  :)

Dave you are killing me - anything at Daryl's House is a treat.  Tedeschi Trucks Band? I can't think of enough good things to say about them, my wife and I have seen them live 3 times and every time the whole band exceeds expectations - they bring joy!

I listened to Eddie Vedder's Ukulele Songs today at work, it is a bittersweet album as every time I hear it every song reminds me of our yellow lab Lucy.  Funny how music can be connected to an event (Lucy, bone cancer and her leaving us = broken hearts)
Then listened to Jerry Douglas - Under the Wire and finished with Mark O'Connor - the New Nashville Cats.

This morning, I'm studying different versions of the fiddle tune "Five Miles from Town". One of the things I enjoy when New River Bound adds a new/old one to the list... since there usually isn't a bass part, it's a blank page, wide open to interpretation.  :)

Interesting how when the melody goes to that high figure the meter goes to five.  So interesting, I looked up the chart (http://www.celticguitarmusic.com/five.png) and followed along.  The chart shows alternating measures of three and two, since the rest of the piece is charted in two.

Nice tune; and nice use of time changes.

We call a tune like that one "crooked" Dave. And it is a bit of a head-game, but in a fun way.  ;)  Incidentally, Lukas and Eden are the young couple that built Jessica's new banjo I posted about last weekend.

I'm listening to your project this quiet Sunday morning.  :)

Peter; back in the 70's we had the album Martin Mull and His Fabulous Furniture In Your Living Room!  I don't think I've listened to any of his "music" since then.  :)
Title: Re: WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW?
Post by: David Houck on July 02, 2017, 10:52:56 AM
Gregory; I like the "crooked" description.  In my case, I was sitting here listening to the music when I suddenly realized I no longer knew where the downbeat was.

Not being as intimately familiar with the genre as you, I'm wondering if such crooked tunes cause problems for the cloggers.  :)

And yes, I thought that was the same company; I remember seeing them in previous videos you had linked, including a demo of a partially fretless banjo.  Love their playing.

And thank you again; glad you like the piece.

I listened to two or three things from Steve Topping's Late Flower yesterday after seeing it discussed in Jimmy's thread.  Some nice ideas compositionally, and some very nice fretless work by Jimmy.

Here is Strolling Boy (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njpeaKJHBio); beautiful lead lines from Jimmy.  Gary Husband on drums.

That Phish tune Wolf linked is from the 10/31/10 "Waiting For Columbus" show.  Waiting For Columbus was an all-time favorite album for me, and this Phish tribute is wonderful.  Watching more of this show now.

Thanks Rob . Kyle the drummer who is in this and two other Bands that I have been  giging with lately is a big Phish fan and wanted to do the "Sneakin Sally " . As a result I find Phish  to be quite fun in many ways having listened more . Thanks for the links .

The bass line in Sneakin' Sally sure sounds like fun. Enjoy playing it Wolf.

So the mind makes connections in so many ways... this one fell into my lap. 
Phish.
Trey on Prairie Home Companion doing this song (sans Phish members, but with Chris Thile):

I was in a "biker band" what seems like many years ago and we covered Back On the Train.
We also covered Moe's Okay Alright.
https://youtube.com/watch?v=LZUaz5huIl4
Both fun songs that broke up some of the predictable 'biker' songs.
