Steam... if you love "Zeppelin Reincarnated" then you will love "Dread Zeppelin".
They do all the Led Zeppelin favorites "reggae style" with an Elvis voice. These guys
are crazier than crazy. I got the their first couple CD's and music just cant be more fun
to listen to. Thanks again to the YouTube age where you can find video of the band now.
I had no idea of their stage act but it looks like fun too. Lots more than these 2 selections
to check out on the "Tube".

Tom Petty may be gone, but his music ain't. Nope. They've put together a 'best of' kinda collection of 60+ songs he put out over the past few years. I'm pretty damn sure that Tom's music was some of the best rock music ever produced... A great artist he was!

So I'm nearing 65yrs old and listening to music has changed over the years. You had your
favorite FM station and favorite times to listen but that is no more. Station is gone and formats
change. No more cool/interesting DJ's around. You are really on your own to forward your music
desires. Thankfully Comcast has the "MC Music Choice Channels" and the best electronic music ch/
station ever "The Pulse" and the best jazz station/ch ever too. They dig deeper into their respective
catagories and no ads or mindless dribble to interrupt your thought. Most of the time when I listen
"to the TV" (switch to my Hi-Fi Stereo 100 watts RMS soundbar) and this music is wonderful.

Write down the artist and name of the song which is easy to do because its on my TV. No waiting around
for a DJ to tell you in 15 minutes or so. Here are a few of my current "like" tunes.

Although it's been about a year...one short blink in the cosmic eye, it seems like a lot longer! What a gap Tom left us to try to fill, which in itself will never happen!

Saw a story in the entertainment section of the local newspaper about a musician coming
to play at the Edmonds Center for Arts Oct 18 one "Kaki King". Has a picture of her playing the
guitar and she has radiation colors streaming from her. Thinking maybe the next Laurie Anderson.
Been wanting to look up Kaki King and got a chance tonight. When it comes to musicians they can
have strange/unorthodox lives. Its never mattered to me being a record buyer if the music is great
you can be pretty strange looking and the rest. So looking at Kaki King for the first time I never would
have guessed her life to now. A "flaming gay woman" that is a genius with the guitar. Its way more
than that as this is a soul with some very advanced skills/ideas. I found a few examples of her work
but need to listen to the rest as she has 7 albums released.

During my youth without my own radio yet or my first record player from 1960 forward I listened to what my folks
played/listened to. They loved C&W but also liked some of "popular" artists. The Brothers 4 had some great music
in the early 60's before the Beatles. As a kid I always liked "Greenfields" not because I liked the lyrics as the lyrics
above my head or dint matter. It was the "moodyness" of the song or "sweet sadness" that I seemed to resonate with
before I'm 10-11yrs old. Micheal Stipe did the song with an electronic band and it ended up where I would hear it.
The lyrics to this song is everything now to me plus the moodyness it creates. The song is going through my head as
I'm cleaning up after dinner washing dishes. Could be a MIR thing.

Quoting Bob Seeger, "Today's music ain't the same soul, I like that old time Rock and Roll!"

Anything less is just imitation. And imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

Hear/see something new everyday hopefully and today I saw my first "Harp Twins" video. Camille and Kennerly are identical twins
born in America. A quick check to find out more like their birthday and they are somewhat secretive I find out. No age, no birthdate,
no last names. They are both 5'6" and worth a billion bucks according to Wikipedia. Perhaps some member not locked out of facebook
can check their page for a little more bio. They really like to cover heavy metal songs as well some other favorites. This is something new
to me a harp small enough to carry over-shoulder and do dance moves and look sexy. Think you need to see/hear the "Harp Twins".

Never heard of the "Hilton Sisters" until tonight. Singing Siamese Twins in the early 1950's and somehow its on YouTube.
Must be tough being Siamese twins. Both "twin great singers" how about that. Then there is the "Del Rubio Triplets" which
made into the spotlight in mid 1950's and a long running career. Don't think the Everly Brothers were twins.

Hear Miles Davis Breezy, Newly Completed Paradise From Lost Eighties Album

 

Track comes from trumpeters long-shelved 1985 LP Rubberband which will finally come out in full in September

 

 

Got the news on streamed listener funded radio.

Some heavy hitters participated in the resurrection.

"Paradise" is nice.

Been a while since Rolling Stone was purchased @ this house.

Been a fan of Miles for a long time. Probably when I first heard him with Coltrane and others in quintet setting, or big band. The cat was ever evolving, and never stopped to ta break!

I dug a little deeper into Rolling Stone, and yeah the newly restored album of original music from Rubberband recordings will hit 'record stores' Sept. 2019  Alrighty!

I'm your Miles Davis "enthusiast" as I have the entire vinyl collection of over 80+LP's and most of it again on CD's.
Saw him in Seattle at the Paramount during the "tutu tour". Think my Miles Davis collection is pretty well set.
Any new to us releases not likely "OMG" Miles Davis. Still give it a listen anyway.

If you listen to jazz on the radio you have heard the name "Joey Alexander". I mean going back last 5yrs of hearing that name
and extraordinary piano playing. I guess I dint get the memo that he is only 11yrs old playing piano like some re-incarnated genius.
Actually started playing jazz tunes on the piano at 5yrs old. Born June 25 2003 so that means he's 16 now. And he does "My Favorite Things".
