I have a huge list of Jazz from itunes, but I couldn't tell you musicians other than the leaders on most.... yes I can google it, but itunes should have this stuff. I sure miss laying back and reading the liner notes when listening to a new album. Yes, remember "albums"?!?!
I thought the Who at the Super Bowl was a brilliant idea. They killed at the 9/11 tribute concert. Emanating waves of power that blew hair back across the floor of Madison Square Garden.
But it’s ten years later. And those songs are ten years older. Forty one years old in the case of "Pinball Wizard", thirty eight and a half in the case of the "Who’s Next" standards. The classics have become TV show anthems. Suddenly, classic rock is our father’s music. And we’re our fathers.
Always a great read...
The word "genius" gets thrown around a lot in reference to artists and musicians — sometimes correctly, sometimes a little overzealously. But if it applies to anyone, it's Django Reinhardt.

Since the 1990 release of his first U.S. recording Guitars and Other Cathedrals , Adrian Legg has more than lived up to the expectations stirred by an ongoing avalanche of praise from critics, fans, top guitar mags and peers alike. Joe Satriani once said, "He's simply the best acoustic guitar player I've ever heard...he plays like he has hammers for fingers." The genius that the Boston Globe has called "technical brilliance paired with a troubadour's tale-weaving skill" led him from 1993-96 to be voted Best Fingerstyle Guitarist four years straight by the readers of Guitar Player magazine.
I highly recommend this show. Adrian Legg is an interesting and Phenomenal player.
Dolby stereo! Gah!
