Garcia, Casady & Dryden : blues jam_____
Basement jam @ 2400 Fulton St. in 1968

I really like this ____ !

I grew up in the neighborhood there. My parents moved down the street to 9th and Fulton in 1959 when I was 3 years old.

I seriously am a firm believer that listening to BACH will make you jam better!

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:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-7XWhyvIpE&index=2&list=RDCokcSY4iWEw

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' ! !

'This is my trombone, there are many like it, but this one is mine . . .'

Semper Fi, and Jarheads rule ! I love these guys.

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.

The one we got is tuned for the Root Chakra, which traditionally is a C.
I checked last night and it is actually a C#; which works well with my digiridoo which is F#.

Might need to experiment with meditative recordings. . .

Our local Unitarian-Universalist church has a set of 5; sometimes they'll start a service by setting them to singing one at a time; by the time the last one joins in, you can just feel all the negative crap just flow out your feet.........

Dave...Pema's theme is beautiful! one of the best things I've heard in some time...there's an instrument in there that totally sounds like Bamboo but I can't fully tell if it's wind or string...do you know what it is? it's really expressive of melancholy and I'd love to hear more...Tony

Tony; I love Pema's theme, and listen to it often. It can be a nice addition to the morning.

I don't know the instrumentation on the tune, but some of the instruments listed in the credits for the album include Indian Flute, Bamboo Flute, Chinese Flute, Duduk, Japanese Flute, Lyre, Ney, Sarangui, Saz, and Tibetan Bowls.

My other favorite from Cyril Morin is Divya's Theme.

Funny... also in the Soccer World Cup vein, but in the other side (Mwahahaha!!!) I´m listening to Heino´s ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heino ) latest album, there is a nice version of Rammstein´s "Sonne". Don´t you want to turn 75 rocking to Rammstein? I surely do!

HI Ken, I like Rob Wasserman , I have his " Trios" recording . He does a tune on that called " Easy Answer" with Bob Weir & Neil Young. Another one that I love is with Jerry Garcia on guitar and Edie Brickell on vocals called___ "Zillionaire".

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.

James McMurtry, Too Long In The Wasteland. Son of Larry McMurtry, and just as good with words. Now if he'd just had someone other than John Hoosier Mellonhead produce the album...............

Also, Turtles' Greatest Hits. Because every now and then, one needs some well-crafted, frothy pop.
