Fast Car

I just spent the damndest Saturday night in years. After supper and a shower, I sat and watched over three hours of music videos.

Now, there ain’t much of anything in this century I found worth watching. I admit it must be around here, somewhere. Maybe next time I look, I’ll find something.

So, even though I went way, way back…this is one from later than my days of spending lots of time making music. And very, very good.

    About once a month, I’ll pick an artist or group or take potluck from Youtube, start the video, then just let them play. It’s how I find new music without radio, and choices as varied as the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, AC/DC, Jack Teagarden, Maynard Ferguson, Dave Brubeck, and Quicksilver have led me to Nightwish, Larkin Poe, Tuba Skinny, Joe Bonamassa, and many others.

      Excellent suggestion. Your finds are no one who rings a bell with me … though Helen’s heard/heard of Bonamassa. I’ll have to give it a try. [and you strike a gas of a memory with Maynard Ferguson from 20th Century music. BITD, my best bud and I headed down to Birdland by train … to catch Miles new sextet. The ultimate group of the day in my mind. Miles, Cannonball Adderley and John Coltrane on saxes, Philly Jo Jones on drums, Paul Chambers on Bass, Red Garland on piano. The counterpoint we hadn’t checked out or expected was Maynard Ferguson’s big band swapping sets. Phew!]

    I was still in short pants when Adderly joined Miles and made the Quintet a sextet, but it’s a show I’d have loved to have seen.
    My jazz interests tend more toward the classical New Orleans style, of which Tuba Skinny is my pick as one of the best available these days. For current sax jazz, check out John Doyle. I’ve not found anybody
