I had the Steve Gadd Band playing on the tube in the Control Room today, while entering seemingly endless pages of data to spreadsheets... somewhere in the midst of this mind-numbing exercise, I suddenly realized the auto-play had gone to something else.

I then realized yet another reason why Jimmy J. is one of my bass heroes. Behold, "Keeping Up with the Gaddashians".

^^^ that was GREAT!  Why hasn't a cable network pick that up? It is by far the best ____ashian show EVER! Real substance there (more bass solos) and the educational aspect...   ???   :)   ;D

I thought it was HILARIOUS! I think it's great anytime a bunch of guys can have that much fun playing (read- performing) music together anyway, but to pull off the faux-reality-show-character vibe too. I laughed so hard one of the other Operators came in the office and asked, "Dude, are you alright in here?!"

Fantastic. Well done, Gaddashians. ;D

Bluegrass pioneer Jesse McReynolds (of Jim & Jesse and the Virginia Boys) suffered a ruptured aneurysm early last week... fortunately, doctors were able to quickly repair it and save him.

Here's Jesse's take on "Franklin's Tower"... Grateful Dead, done Virginia style.  ;)

"Mandolobro"?  Resonator mandola?

I've yet to find a picture of it; but I found a description:

"... he played a new instrument, a mandolobro, which was tuned like a mandola (C, G, D, A from bass to treble strings) with a resonator guitar body." source

When I ran an image search for mandolobro, it returned a lot of his album covers, which suggest it's in the credits and he's played it on a lot of tunes.

Just got back home from Raleigh, North Carolina, where IBMA  (International Bluegrass Music Association) wrapped up their week long World of Bluegrass fanfest. Had a blast wandering all afternoon through the street festival, with stages at every other block or so, featuring music from every branch of the bluegrass tree.

Kenny and Amanda Smith are old friends of mine... I caught their show last night at one of these stages. This cut of Gordon Lightfoot's "Wherefore & Why" from their most recent album was a standout.

But I love hearing Kenny burn down "John Henry's Blues" too.
