Albert King & Stevie Ray Vaughan — In Session 2010 1983

September 27, 2012


It’s amazing how far ahead of the beat Stevie plays and how far behind Albert plays.  They died within two years of each other although they were 29 years apart in age.  Oh, to be the bass player on this session…

Scott Brown says you can’t be Native American if you look “white” –

It’s not generally known that recently-murdered Amb. Chris Stevens was a full, registered Chinook. A great many Chinooks in the NW can “pass” as white. You can verify this by checking w/ the Chinook Tribe.

Jazz “Covers”

Dear Jazz,
Playing modern pop sounding songs in this format was novel and fun for a few minutes…10 years ago. Quit trying to be cute and start being creative again.

The Radials at The Green Bean

August 21, 2012

The new band I’m playing with is The Radials.  We are filling up the gig calendar for the fall.  Here is a video from our gig at a coffee shop called The Green Bean in Greensboro, NC on Sunday August 19.  Missing is Drew, who plays keys and pedal steel.  I broke out Nadine, my upright, for the gig.  I was pretty rusty and sore on Monday.  Go figure.

Tales From the Stereo – Hacienda

Wow.  This band is great.  They are from San Antonio and are mostly Latino (or Hispanic).  The music makes so much sense even though the instrument arrangements are unique.  It’s nice to see rock music being made by people who aren’t pasty white skinny geeks.

You know, there is a big discrepancy between the 1% and the 99% and the people featured in this blog show there is little indication of that changing in my lifetime.  I don’t know if they are good people or not, but there is a lot to be said for being humble.
