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".

"The Steel Guitar"...love it or hate it. Growing up my folks loved C&W music and my mom loved Hawaii music.
50's-60's C&W songs probly 60% had a steel guitar beginning which I got sick of. So fucking predictable.
Well I took a few minutes on YouTube's collection of examples where the steel guitar is not so predictable.
Pete Drake and Barbara Mandrell and Sarah Jory and a killer version of Apache.

I've always loved electronic music. Never know quite know how they make all the cool sounds. Sometimes you find out that
all that sound coming from 2 people playing some new electronical/computer devices...or one person. Many times "band names"
are just one person...a very talented one person who seems to have an endless amount of musical talent and operate the 100's
of buttons on a console of sorts and make it all work to the point of "unbelievable". Reinhardt Buhr has to be one of the best at
the "Boss RC505 Loop Station". There are others...

Until recently, I didn't realize they hadn't even released an album when they killed at Woodstock.



Obligatory, there's never a time not to listen to Alvin Lee shred his Big Red Gibson - 'I'm Going Home'....Jeez this guy could play. RIP, Alvin, you died way too soon.

I'm sure you all heard of the Tielman Brothers the first Indonesian band to make it big late 50's-early 60's.
Recognized as one of the best live acts ever in Europe. I would have to agree.

Never heard of "Seasick Steve" before and thanks to YouTube's "recommendations" this artist was to be listened to.
Makes instruments from trash items and electrifies it and plays live shows. Pretty much all I know.

"Space Age Pop" was a thing I recorded off the radio (CBC-FM/Brave New Waves) onto cassette back in the mid-1990's.
There is a Vol 2 which is just as good as Vol 1. Happy lounge music.

It wouldn't be MIR without a search through my entire music collection for one song that I'm sure I have. As my search
drug on I'm seem to remember a similar search for the same song but I cant remember how it turned out. So being as its
MIR I've been listening to things in my collection not listened to in a long time. "TAPES"...I got so many tapes. Open up a
case and a couple "Sting" tapes. I got all "The Police" lps and all the early Sting lps/cassettes...but not this song. Remember
first hearing it on a trip to CA and driving around Monterrey/Carmel on a warm summer evening 1990 or so. Still sounds
great to me..."If I ever lose my faith in you". Then in the surprise video is Robert Downey Jr doing a Sting song with Sting
on Sting's 60th birthday...Driven to Tears. This could leave your ears "Stinging".

Need to keep this section active when most are now dormant on the BJ. "Thank Gawd it was only a Decade Long" was
actually a great decade to me music wise. Pre-internet days and you had no idea what these bands look like or their
stage acts or if they were "flaming gay". Big surge in electronic dance music to my ears. The 80's are 40yrs ago but
enough about that. Today in 2020 I have no favorite radio station/AM/FM. I might listen to KEXP if the KSER transmitter
dint get planted 3 miles from me jamming any further KEXP listening. Loved the KPLU days of great jazz and fun personalities
until it became KNKX and "way too much fucking pledge drives and way too much saying how great they are every 10 minutes".
Taking advantage of my Xfinity package and the 2 best listening "stations" on radio. MC Jazz and MC Sounds of the Seasons "The Pulse".
Completely left off my listening radar is anything else that the rest of the nation is listening to/buying now. If its so great it will find
its way to me. I wrote down a few tunes I heard recently on "The Pulse". I've heard them all before and they sound even better with
a few listenings. That how music works. Play a tune "3-times" and it becomes a personal favorite.
