Thank you, that was really nice! I'm gonna have to look for her...I don't listen to that type of music that often, but enjoy when I do; old bandmates were weirded out by my thing for power pop...I wish I could do that music but all my music comes out sludge/groove, crunchy and slightly evil or creepy...don't get me wrong, I love what I make but I just haven't got the wiring to make a love song or a pretty song...oh well...Tony

P.S. sea of bees got me right off track; I was listening to NOMEANSNO '0+2=1' one of my faves...

But my guess is that I'll probably be listening to something else soon.

I've posted links to some Cyril Morin tunes before, and here's another one. Probably not everyone's cup of tea; but I think this is stunningly beautiful. The Mind

The instrumentation is sparse; minimum but very effective percussion, and keyboards that paint a soundscape. These support a voice and vocal line that are treated with a carefully contoured reverb. The line itself is well crafted and skillfully sung.

I've listened to it before, but just now listened several times in a row. Stunning.

That video of Rob and John is neat; they're so young! Rob used the same bass for SO long...I saw it soon before he retired it at the shop I used to work at; the pickguard was brass, held on with duct tape as the screw holes were done; filled with dowels that were themselves done repeatedly...the finish on body and neck was falling off in chunks...it looked awesome but it was clearly past the point where you would rely on it on tour; I don't know if he still uses it for recording. Tom Holliston their guitar player lives 8 blocks from me so I can usually tell when they're on tour or not...Tony

I have to say my preference is for Bob's original on his 'another side of Bob Dylan' album - also featuring 'Motorpsycho nightmare' which is one of my favourite songs of all time. I believe I can just about remember all the lyrics despite not having listened to it for a good few years. Might be the subject of my next 'What are you listening to' post although I've just been sent a setlit for a band I'm considering and there's not too many familiar songs on it so I'm going to be woodshedding for the next few days.

Dire Straits - "Brothers in Arms", a classic from my high school years. (Dang, has it *really* been 29 years since this came out?!)

Anyway, I always loved John Illsley's smooth, supporting style of bass playing... uncannily like John McVie's. Listen to the similarities between "Sultans of Swing" and "Go Your Own Way".

Last two days in the truck - Brand X Product - some of the best fretless bass and drum jamming around. My favorite work by Percy Jones and Mike Clark on drums.

And right now - Wayne Krantz (played with Steely Dan) His new Good Piranaha, Bad Piranaha is pretty cool. Plus I'm going to see his trio next month here in Nashville.

And David Pastorious and Local 518. Check them out!

Mike Stern's 'Time In Place'.

I had a bunch of tunes on a cassette tape for over 20 years and never knew what any of the tracks were.I'd labelled it 'Mystery Fusion Stuff' and I was scared to play it in case it got chewed up,and figured I'd never find out what any of the cuts were.Thanks to the Shazam app I've been able to identify most of them after all this time.Along with Frank Gambale's 'Legends' and 'The Tardis',this is a real highlight.

So I paused the rehearsal recording I was listening to so I could hear the Mike Stern song (I still can't get over how he is now to how fat he was with Miles..) anyway, just went back to rehearsal recording as I type this and it's kinda like going from a nice hotel wedding party to getting drunk with the dumpster divers out back scrounging the leftovers...I think I will always be closer to the dumpsters, which is funny as I am a goldsmith by training and work in a pawnshop so I have more gold go through my hands than most people see in a lifetime; damn I LOSE diamonds in my workshop, but tiny ones worth a few bucks each...still...anyway if anyone cares to listen, they'res some Rumsfeld tunes at reverbnation.com/rumsfeld and I don't know if they're the good recordings of the songs or not as I haven't checked in awhile; my drummer does that stuff...Tony.

I'm a big fan of 'Live from Daryl's House'. One of the episodes, he had Booker T. Jones guesting, and Daryl reached back for this gem:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVt3I-HupRE

. . . . Eddie Floyd's 'Never Found a Girl', which Booker T co-wrote and produced the side back in the day when Stax was a powerhouse. Can't argue with him, one of my favorite tunes as well, and rockets me right back into the heyday of Soul music, somewhere I'm very happy.

Daryl's a great 'white soul singer', and without the baggage that usually drags with it, and a great student of his hometown Philly-style and all the rest. I really dug the episodes with Smokey and Shelby Lynne, and Joe Walsh and Billy G turned in good days as well.

Nice video Joey. I've seen a number of great jams on Live From Daryl's House; two of my favorites were the ones they did with Todd Rundgren. Most of the good stuff is no longer up on Daryl's site; but thanks to you, I've found that some is up on youtube. Here's I Saw The Light, shot at Todd's house.

Thanks for that, I did not know about Daryl's house; I will explore it now; so much good stuff!...the Todd Rundgren song has a very different feel from the rest as it's in a different place; must be amazing to ask Booker T and Billy Gibbons, etc. to come over to your place to play some tunes with your band...Tony

Daryl's House is great fun. Super band.

On a different note; my wife and I saw Birdman yesterday,
The score for the movie is AWESOME,

I was going to reveal it, but I think it is best served unannounced. If you have the time and don't mind spending a few bucks for a movie, you should see Birdman. As I was watching I kept getting caught up in the score - saying, I got to know who this is.

If you don't want to see the movie then do a web search of "Birdman score".

"Death Don't Have No Mercy", 10-9-1989 Hampton, Va.

I saw Phil & Friends do it at the "1967" show a week ago Friday and it's been in my head ever since. I'll be jamming with Wolf and some other guys this afternoon ... think I'll introduce it to the group.

Dave, that is indeed the soundtrack.
However the 'score' played throughout the movie was done by Antonio Sanchez - and THAT is what is so very captivating, punctuating and appropriate for the action on screen.

Just returned from a roadtrip trip to Boone/Blowing Rock, North Carolina, where I did a couple gigs with my 2nd cousin. The Persuader can cut a Country Blues-Ragtime gig too!

Anyway, had a couple hundred miles to myself in the car, and listened to the (mostly forgotten) 1995 Fleetwood Mac album, "Time". The band personnel at the time was Mick Fleetwood, John, & Christine McVie, with Dave Mason and Billy Burnette on guitars, and Bekka Bramlett as vocalist. I liked the whole album, but Mick's haunting narrative on the last track, "These Strange Times" presumably a tribute to Peter Green, really stuck with me as I climbed up Fancy Gap on I-77N back into Virginia.

Full album: http://youtu.be/FUu0WOxPlsw

Radiohead - The King of Limbs.

Awoke at 3:30 am - no reason other than I was just done sleeping . . .

This album holds a deep melancholy for me.

Not sure if it is the actual music that brings the heavy emotion or because we got it around the time our first dog was waning from bone cancer.

The review of this album in Rolling Stone was spot on, glad I picked it up at the time (1990).... Definitely defined the era for me prior to the word "grunge" being kicked around so loosely....

I caught this line-up when they were supporting Uncle Tupelo. Awesome line-up. Tim from the Jayhawks on drums, Mike Russell on fiddle, and Eric Hayward on steel... Jim Bouquist hinted that him and his brother were getting ready for something awesome, and it happened to be Son Volt, after Uncle Tupelo disbanded....

Good stuff! I have loved Matthew Sweet for quite a while; I saw him at a club here in Vancouver a long time ago (perhaps about the time of In Reverse) and I remember as soon as the vocal harmonies of "I've been waiting" came in I was SO happy to be there; I loved that show...he's written so much good stuff, I just don't know how he's managed to disappear...he does cool pottery now though, and still doing music...probably because he's never been very photogenic, especially now...Tony

Norman Blake's new CD, "Wood, Wire, & Words", first new material he's put out in 20 years.

I have always loved Blake's guitar style, and we have similar tastes in vintage Martin guitars.

It was fun, but listening to John Mayer trying to play over Althea was a bit awkward. He seemed uncomfortable making the changes.

Great to seem them out there, though, and I loved the drummer.

I didn't know John Mayer was doing a show; I'll have to see if I can get it, he seems cool...listening to Dead covers here compared to concert recordings posted, I have to say I prefer the covers because they're the distilled origins and essence; I love jamming but to make a SONG you need to distill it to the core themes ( sorry, I'm making moonshine right now, so I'm into concentrating)...I saw SLEEP on Saturday night, who were awesome...the most awesome rigs; Al the bass player had THREE SVT STACKS with tho backup heads and a HIWATT half stack...Matt Pike had a Marshall jcm800 stack, a HIWATT stack( in white; never seen one before, looked awesome) and an Orange stack; full stacks too...HUGE is all I can say...hate to be the roadies...Tony

Yeah, caught the Weir/Mayer performance on FB, and almost didn't recognize Keltner w/out the massive DW set.... It was only until I honed in on his left foot that I made the connection.
I did a gig w/ that bass player a few years back, I provided backline for all three bands.... I gave him a Walter Woods head, but I think he was eying the F2-B in my rack...

I think a lot of people write off Jerry Garcia's playing, but whatever you say about him, he knew how to play through changes (and thankfully, so does Trey, which does make him a good choice for this summer). Sometimes that doesn't become obvious until someone else tries to do it, full of confidence that the same old blues licks will still work.

But I enjoyed both, it's nice to see Bob in better shape. I never liked his slide playing much in the past, but now I see it as entertaining performance art.

That has to be the most PC comment about Weir's slide playing I have heard to date. As horrible as Weir's slide playing can be Jerry's wasn't much better... strange considering what a sweet sound he got on pedal steel.

Thought the Weir/Mayer Truckin' was much better than the Althea but the Althea wasn't bad. Keltner's drumming on Truckin' was IMO exceptional, beautiful solid groove with lots of subtle melodic touches in the fills.

I hadn't looked at this thread in a while and missed the mention of a new Norman Blake CD. Been a huge fan since the early 70s so I will definitely be checking it out. Thanks...

As far as slide playing, once you go to lap or pedal steel it's hard to go back... I'm just used to the weight and pressure of a heavy bar, and the muting pressure of my later digits, that when I try to play bottleneck now, it's just awful.... Luckily, I'm the first to notice... :-)

The bass player on the Meyer/Weir gig looked familiar. It took me a while of searching, but his name is Sean Hurley. And he looked familiar because I've seen him in videos of Meyer posted here before; for instance this one with Meyer playing an Alembic Darling. He's also an established session player with an extensive portfolio.

Yeah Dave, I didn't know of the Mayer connection until these videos went up. The gig I did w/ him was Alicia Keys backing band supporting a local kid w/ connections to SST in Hoboken where they all used to rehearse... I don't know if the facility recovered from hurricane Sandy... Last I heard they were only doing cartage in the city.....

Dave, I noticed another established (!) session guy in the vid from Irvine with the Darling: The second drummer (your right, stage left), Jim Keltner ! Further down that YouTube page is a clip from 'Later with Jools Holland' where JM's playing a Wolf.

Ah hah! That makes sense that it was Keltner. He's awesome, although I've never seen him play live or even a video of him, despite decades of listening to his playing.

I have a friend who has the same Silvertone as John Hiatt in that video; such a nice guitar...some of those old Harmony's were so good, and the old Kay's too (I have one) but other models were poo...Tony.

Cool, Elwood - I confess I am only familiar with his newgrass stuff (if you're not, Youtube "Strength In Numbers"); this is another side altogether.

What sonicus said... great band, and looks like it would be a fun gig for a bass player. They remind me of something else, just can't put a finger on it. Anyway, they surely compliment each other well as a band. Easy to see they've been together a while.

As an aside, I've been trying since yesterday evening to figure out if that Martin guitar is a D-18 Golden Era, or Authentic Series. I'm guessing it's a GE. Definitely looks like an Adirondack top, and the long bridge saddle suggests it must be one or the other... the pickguard is throwing me off though. Maybe it was changed?

Great band! The sound reminds me of a band we have up here called Blue Rodeo, although they don't have a female singer. The mix though, and the sound generally.

I just received the "Anthology of American Folk Music", a six CD version of the original collection of recordings put together by Harry Smith and released in 1952. Among others, Dylan, Garcia,and Hunter have acknowledged the Anthology as seminal in their development. I'm currently listening the CD's 1&2, "Ballads". 3&4 are "Social Music" and 5&6 are "Songs". Altogether a total of eighty-four recordings from the 1920's and early 1930's.

Oh yea, and Nicki Bluhm is excellent!

Bill, tgo

Here's Nicki Bluhm with Phil Lesh, Scott Law, Jackie Greene and more doing Free Man In Paris.

Nicki's band is the one that made those really cool videos of them riding down the highway singing covers, like this one: I Can't Go For That.

Wolf; one of the things that impresses me most about Phil is that it seems to me that he is always trying to get better, in both his playing and his singing. And in this video, it looks to me like he's once again pushing his own boundaries, playing what I think of as a difficult piece, for what looks to quite possibly be the first time, in a live situation. And having loads of fun all at the same time.

And another thing, while I'm thinking out loud; he is introducing us to a lot of really cool younger musicians, giving them well deserved opportunities, and probably teaching them a thing or two along the way.

Dave , Quite certainly ,Phil and that collection of players with Nicki Bluhm did a great job of Free Man in Paris and Nicki sang it wonderfully and they made it their own with Jam Band Grateful Dead style from my perspective. I really liked what they did with it .

As far as Phil introducing young players to us I think is an awesome tradition among great artists such as Mr. Charlie Parker introducing and inviting a young Miles Davis to play with him. Later Mr. Miles Davis introduced us to John McLaughlin and Darryl Jones and several other players . It is such a nice thing for a seasoned accomplished musician to do.

"Shadows and Light" is an old time favourite of mine :-) I specially enjoy the "joke" they do on "In France they kiss at main street", where, after Pat´s solo, they play an insinuation of Metheny´s "Phase Dance"... delightful! And an awesome performance, all of it!

Good stuff...a LOT of ACOUSTIC amps up there in that gig...I love my 370; seriously, I've played a number of gigs using more modern solid state amps (Gallien Krueger, etc.) and they don't have the balls of my 370; I'd like some amp geek to explain why to me...

What I am listening to now is rehearsal recordings; some amazingly angry versions of songs; clearly the tensions of each member needed a release...someone recently described our sound as Killdozer mixed with Goddo; a mind-bending mix but perhaps the closest peg yet...Tony
