      • I've been listening to a lot of female jazz vocals from the 50s and 60s. I have some annoying EdgeLord observations. Would you like to hear them? Good.

        1. Billy Holiday was from another planet. She's so categorically better than any other singer I've ever heard she should have something like an Erdos Number.

        2. I don't get Sarah Vaughn. No sir, I don't like it. I think I like Dinah Washington's voice but most of her songs/arrangements were awful.

        3. I only like Ella when she's with Armstrong or Ellington but then I love her.

        4. My god, the syrupy arrangements of the 50s make 90% of the music unlistenable. Can we please go back and engineer out every violin from every jazz record ever recorded?

            Depends. This sure isn't.

              • Saw Steve Vai in a 500 seat theater last night, I can see why Frank Zappa made him a member of his band just out of Berkelee. The guy is out there( just like Frank was). I’m on the fence, liked some of the stuff, others not so much.

                Headed to see Santana tonight, can’t wait.

                Taylor Swift gave out 55 million in bonuses to the folks with her on this tour. 100 grand to truck drivers. How the **** much money did her tour gross?

                  Try her with Joe Pass.

                  • Probably late to the party but The Sheepdogs started showing up on a Pandora station I have. From Canada and formed in like 2004 but could easily be mistaken for a band straight out of Georgia in the 1970s. Good southern rock feel to them. Claim Allman Bros, CCR, CSNY, Zeppelin, and Stevie Wonder as influences of their style.

                    Also new Wilco album coming out Sept 29 so excited for that. Seeing them in Salt Lake in October (will be my 3rd Wilco/Jeff Tweedy show within a year). Really looking forward to hearing new stuff live.

                        As of two weeks ago, her tour had grossed about $300MM at an average ticket price of $253.

                        Her impact on the economy is about $5 billion, per the Philadelphia Fed’s office.

                        • Public Image Ltd - Metal Box. Listened to this again for the first time in a long time. Still holds up. Swan Lake from that album.

                          Imagine being in London at that time along with Bauhaus, Joy Division, The Clash, The Damned, The Cure, Siouxsie...

                          Just checked out The Sheepdogs. Got a bit of an older Black Keys meets CCR meets the Kinks vibe. Pretty cool stuff.

                          • Santana, he wasn’t the guitarist of Woodstock era but it was a great show just the same. Crowd was pumped the second he stepped out . They opened with Soul Sacrifice and ended with Smooth. Fun night.

                            • Not only is this a better performance than the one in Oakland a year later, but it was them telling to the Rolling Stones to kiss their arse.

                              • The Xcel Center has Lionel Ritchie and Eath Wind & Fire tonight. That explains why I was the young man on the street as I walked to Burger Moe’s tonight.
