Damn!  I just listened to this for the 3rd time in two days! I have always loved Nina Simone!  She should be in every music hall of fame on Earth!

Fully agree.

She is just... so fully present.

authentic...

 

she wasn't catering, selling

she was sharing authentically... of herself.

 

one of a kind, what a force

 

all that from a screen, can only imagine being in the room with her...

All of pop and rock and roll owe a great deal to Charlie Christain. --John Lennon had a Charlie Christian pickup fitted on his Les Paul in tribute to him.

Show is starting to ramp up now after a month of budget wrestling matches and indecisiveness on behalf of the Producers and Art Department.  But they have found their drive and the purse strings have opened so...

 

We'll be picking up our third stage and a new mill this week.

Going to be crazy time again for the forseeable next month or two.

This will be playing on my headphones pretty much daily on loop, as I channel my inner ocean currents to counteract all the crazy.

I post this because it is good, it is a classic, because Israel iz was a great guy and it takes real balls to take a Judy Garland standard and go with it. Unfortunately his only great weakness was his weight.  He died young at 757 pounds (343kg).

Damn! That is good! How do you find this stuff?! This is better than 98+% of the rock being done in the USA right now!

I love cultural cross-pollination, especially when it is done so well!

I sometimes do -- as in this case.  I was weary of rock for a long time.  A new trail to blaze from that into something different but unexpectedly compatible may be the way to go!

They're so dang tight, in the pocket, so technical and clean and so hard! 

I found these guys just click hounding on youtube, but usually I get new music at work. 

 

I work with a ton of musicians who moonlight on tv and film sets as electricians/grips/propheads between tourd, or until they get their break... so I'm always asking asking bugging picking... who's into what and then taking copious notes.  (cuz i can't seem to remember when I'm in the store any more).

Going back to the early 90's.  My gal and I in our first and second apartments.

 

I used to put these guys on loop and my gal and I would just dissolve into each other's presence as we flowed in, through and around each other through our home for hours.

 

We studied and played the Jerzy Grotowski method.  It was the precursor to my interest in Qi Gong and moving meditation forms.

this is still my favorite...

My gal was pregnant with our son, when we saw them last, at the legendary Hollywood Bowl.

 

I stood behind my gal, hands on her womb the entire show, swaying.

Every time Lisa Gerrard sang, he danced.

 

They've gotten back together and are touring Europe.

They'll be in Los Angeles in May this year, a week before my wife's Birthday.

I got tickets for the three of us.  He can dance next to us this time :)

Who is DJ JaBig?

JaBig is a Canadian DJ who currently is on an historic first DJ world tour by bicycle, a 5-year, 100 000 km epic journey to realise a lifelong dream and to raise money for World Bicycle Relief, a charity that has distributed close to 500 000 bikes in Africa.

The Montréal-based artist gained global recognition from his 500+ DEEP & DOPE DJ mixes which have been streamed for over 7 billion hours on YouTube, SoundCloud, Spotify, Apple Music and Mixcloud and for being the first and only person in history to cycle across Canada coast-to-coast-to-coast in Winter on a fixed-gear bicycle to break the Guinness World Records of “The Longest Journey by Bicycle in a Single Country”.
