Old & In The Way Reunion “Land of the Navajo”

Jerry
Published on Dec 31, 2008

Old & In The Way was a bluegrass super group of the 70’s (1973-1974)that included Jerry Garcia, Peter Rowan, Vassar Clements and David Grisman. [And John Kahn! -Ed.] This reunion concert had Herb Pedersen replacing the late Jerry Garcia (banjo) and Bryn Bright on the bass. The reunion concert released the “Old and In The Gray” CD in 2002.

The original band is entwined so deeply in my Heart and Soul that it is one with it. Legendary musicians. And this reunion band is just super, the new guys fit like a glove and they really nail it. The long instrumental is gorgeous… and Vassar… OMG, the best violinist ever in the history of the world, man… he has passed now, too. Let’s just say that Vassar is deeply embedded within my Heart and Soul and I miss him so.

I need to seriously get back into this stuff … bluegrass … this music is where my Soul feels right.

Enjoy!

A Young Eric Clapton Delivers the Goods for Aretha Franklin in 1967

22-year-old Eric Clapton delivers the goods on an Aretha Franklin classic.

8 hours ago

 

In December 1967, while he was still a member of Cream, 22-year-old British guitar phenom Eric Clapton was brought into a recording studio in the U.S. and asked to add a guitar part to Franklin’s powerful “Good to Me As I Am to You.”

It represents Clapton’s first official American recording session as a “famous guest guitarist” lending his skills—and, to some degree, his name—to someone else’s recording. That’s Clapton’s guitar—we assume it’s a Gibson of some sort—in the left speaker; note that you might have to turn it up a bit for the full effect.

“Good to Me As I Am to You” was released January 1968 on Franklin’s Lady Soul album. Other musicians on the track include Spooner Oldham (organ), Tommy Cogbill (bass) and Roger Hawkins (drums). Enjoy!

Maynard Ferguson – Birdland

malawolf85
Published on Jul 31, 2008

Walter Maynard Ferguson, best know for his extreme high register control on trumpet, was a Canadian jazz trumpet player and bandleader. Born in Verdun, Quebec (now part of Montreal) Maynard by the age of four was playing piano and violin but at 9 years of age he switched to cornet. At age thirteen, Maynard first soloed as a child prodigy with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Orchestra and was heard frequently on the CBC, notably featured on a “Serenade for Trumpet in Jazz” written for him by Morris Davis. Maynard won a scholarship to the French Conservatory of Music where he studied from 1943 through 1948 with Bernard Baker. Maynard dropped out of Montreal High School at age 15 to more actively pursue a music career, performing in dance bands led by Stan Wood, Roland David, and Johnny Holmes. During this period, Maynard came to the attention of numerous American bandleaders and began receiving offers to come to the United States. Maynard moved to the United States in 1949 and initially played with the bands of Boyd Raeburn, Jimmy Dorsey, and Charlie Barnet. The Barnet band was notable for a trumpet section that also included Doc Severinsen, Ray Wetzel, Johnny Howell, and Rolf Erickson. When Barnet temporarily retired in 1949 and disbanded his orchestra, Maynard was free to accept an offer to join Stan Kenton’s newly formed Innovations Orchestra, a 40-piece jazz concert orchestra with strings. While the Innovations Orchestra was not commercially successful, it made a number of remarkable recordings, including “Maynard Ferguson,” one of a series of pieces named after featured soloists. When Kenton returned to a more practical 19-piece jazz band, Maynard continued with him. So popular was Maynard with Kenton that for three years running, 1950, 1951, and 1952, he won the Down Beat Readers’ Poll as best trumpeter. In 1953, Maynard left Kenton to become a first-call session player for Paramount Pictures. Ferguson appeared on 46 soundtracks including The Ten Commandments. Ferguson still recorded jazz during this period, but his Paramount contract prevented him from playing jazz clubs. While he enjoyed the regular paycheck, Ferguson was very unhappy with the lack of live performance opportunities and left Paramount in 1956. In 1956, Maynard was tapped to lead the Birdland Dream Band, a 14-piece big band formed by Morris Levy as an “all-star” lineup to play at Levy’s Birdland jazz club in New York City. While the name “Birdland Dream Band” was short-lived and is represented by only two albums, this band became the core of Maynard’s performing band for the next nine years. Following the path taken by many jazz artists in the 1960s, Ferguson left the United States. Feeling that he needed a period of spiritual exploration. Maynard formed a new band and it made its North American debut in 1971. Maynard latched on to the burgeoning jazz education movement by recruiting talented musicians from colleges with jazz programs and targeting young audiences with performances and master classes in high schools. This practical and strategic move helped him develop a strong following that would sustain him for the remainder of his career. In 1988, Maynard formed the group Big Bop Nouveau, a nine-piece band featuring three trumpets, one trombone, two reeds and a three-piece rhythm section. The band’s repertoire included original jazz compositions and modern arrangements of jazz standards, with occasional pieces from his ’70s book and the Birdland Dream Band; this format proved to be successful with audiences and critics. In 1992, he was inducted into the Down Beat Jazz Hall of Fame. Just days after completing a weeklong run at New York’s Blue Note and recording a studio album in New Jersey, Maynard developed an abdominal infection that resulted in kidney and liver failure. Ferguson died on the evening of August 23, 2006 at the Community Memorial Hospital in Ventura, California.

Maynard gives Birdland a whirl… and it is good. Of course! My cuz played bass with Maynard for a good while.

“Games People Play” – Joe South – 1969

murphicus
Published on Feb 24, 2007

Make sure to visit www.joesouth.com

There is also a wikipedia.org page on “The Games People Play” that has some great info on the song. The lyrics below are from that site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Games_Pe…)

“Games People Play” is a song written, composed and performed by singer/song-writer Joe South. In 1968, the song was released on Joe’s debut album: Introspect. It won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year in 1970. The song has been covered by Jerry Lee Lewis, Tesla, The Georgia Satellites, Big Tom and The Mainliners, Bill Haley and His Comets, The Tremeloes, Johnny Johnson & the Bandwagon, Ike and Tina Turner, Dreadzone, Hank Williams Jr., Inner Circle as well as others. It was also mentioned in the Brian Wilson song “Games Two Can Play” from his unreleased album Adult Child.

Noteably, in Singapore circa 1969, an instrumental version showed-up on a single by The White Crane Orchestra. The reggae band Inner Circle also released a cover version which was quite popular in Europe for a while in the mid-90s. In 2006, it was covered by Jools Holland on his album Moving Out to the Country with guest vocalist Marc Almond. The Scottish singer, Dick Gaughan, covered it on his album A Different Kind of Love Song.

Whoa–the games people play now.
Every night and every day now.
Never meanin’ what they say now.
Never sayin’ what they mean.

While they wile away the hours
in their ivory towers,
’till they’re covered-up with flowers
in the back of a black limousine.

[Chorus]

La, da, da da, da-da da;
La, da, da da, da-da de…
talkin’ ’bout you-n-me
and the games people play–now.

Whoa we make one another cry,
break a heart then we say goodbye;
cross our hearts and we hope to die
that the other was to blame.

But neither one will ever give-in,
so we gaze at an eight-by-ten
thinkin’ ’bout the things that might have been
and it’s a dirty rotten shame.

[Chorus]

People walkin’-up to ya,
singin’ glory hallelujah
‘n’ they’re tryin’ ta sock it to ya,
in the name of the Lord.

They’re gonna teach you how to meditate,
read your horoscope, cheat your fate.
And furthermore to Hell with hate
Come-on and get-on board.

[Chorus]

Look-around tell me what you see.
What’s a-happenin’ to you and me?
God grant me the serenity to jus’ remember who I am.

’cause you’ve given-up your sanity
for your pride and your vanity,
turn your back on humanity;
Oh and you don’t give a da da da da da.

[Chorus x 3]

-Joe South

I loved it then… I love it even more now. Still 100% true and relevant.

I have never heard anything by the late Joe South that I didn’t like. Rest In Peace, Sir.

She’s moved upstairs. Nice write up with her background history at Ultimate Classic Rock.

af

Aretha Franklin, the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, has died according to the Associated Press. The cause of death was advanced pancreatic cancer. She was 76.

A canny ability to blend soaring gospel and soul-deep R&B, city attitude with country values, gritty feminism and stark emotion transformed Franklin into a towering figure in popular music. “No one can copy her,” Jerry Wexler, Franklin’s legacy-defining Atlantic Records producer, memorably argued. “She’s all alone in her greatness.”

“So Near To Nowhere” from Rough Cut by Curtis Salgado & Alan Hager.

Released: 2018. Track 2 of 13.

Six original songs imbued with the spirit of the blues’ greatest traditions and seven vibrant takes on classic tunes by Elmore James, Muddy Waters, Son House and more.  From front porch acoustic finger-picking to swaggering Chicago shuffles and dark, swampy blues, Curtis and Alan play with the joy of kids in a candy store, delighting in the rich, captivating legacy of the blues.

LINER NOTES

Curtis Salgado’s earth-shaking vocals and forceful harmonica playing have been devastating audiences around the world for over 30 years. Alan Hager’s guitar expertise has been wowing fellow musicians from his hometown of Portland, Oregon and beyond for decades. Hager has been jamming with Salgado since 2003, and joined his band full-time in 2015. “Alan is the best player in the business, unlike anybody else,” Salgado says.

Together, the two blues fans and friends took time out of their busy touring schedule to record Rough Cut, a stripped-down album featuring a potent mix of newly written, timeless originals and carefully chosen blues covers. “We did it for the love of the music,” says Salgado. “This is where our hearts are. These are deep songs that we love to play.”

With Curtis’ inspired singing and world-class harmonica playing and Alan’s spellbinding guitar, Rough Cut is the album Salgado and Hager have always wanted to make together—soulful, sparse, haunting—a blues lover’s dream come true. The music is a moving exploration of the joyful, emotionally uplifting power of passionately played and soulfully sung acoustic blues, the music Hager calls “American Classical.” “This type of music moves us the most,” says Salgado. “You believe it when you hear it.”

Wonderfully wonderful. Oh my, yes,

Andrew Sisters – Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy (V-Disc 1941)

Published on Jan 7, 2016

A very youthful looking Andrews Sisters performing Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy V-disc for U.S. military overseas personnel, WWII era. Circa 1941. Their casual appearance makes them look quite attractive by today’s standards. Particularly Maxene (on the right) with her hair up. Alas most of their career they had heavily permed 40’s hairstyles of the day, not unattractive by any stretch, but reminded me a bit too much of my grandmother.

Oh do I adore these three ladies… from a tiny baby boy right up to now as a decrepit old phart.

Canned Heat – Going Up The Country

Lyrics:

I’m going up the country, baby don’t you wanna go
I’m going up the country, baby don’t you wanna go
I’m going to some place where I’ve never been before

I’m going, I’m going where the water tastes like wine
I’m going where the water tastes like wine
We can jump in the water, stay drunk all the time

I’m gonna leave this city, got to get away
I’m gonna leave this city, got to get away
All this fussing and fighting, man, you know I sure can’t stay

Now, Baby, pack your leaving trunk, you know we got to leave today
Just exactly where we going I can not say
But we might even leave the U.S.A.
‘Cause it’s a brand new game, and I don’t want to play

No use of you running or screaming and crying
‘Cause you got a home as long as I’ve got mine

Truly wonderful and truly a classic. It neatly said what so many of us were thinking. And in many ways still are…

The Stymphalanian birds are a group of man-eating birds from Greek mythology. They are said to be the size of cranes, looking like ibises but with more powerful beaks. They will attack any who hunt them, killing them with their beaks. They can pierce any iron or bronze armour, but will catch their beaks in armour made of thick cork.

The birds were the pets of Artemis, but fled to Arcadia from a pack of wolves. They bred quickly and overwhelmed the townspeople. For his sixth labour, Heracles hunted and killed the birds with arrows dipped in the blood of the Lernaean Hydra.

In North American folklore, the Roperite is a fearsome critter. It has leathery skin and a long, rope-like beak which it uses to ensnare its prey. Unlike almost all other fearsome critters, the Roperite lives in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, as opposed to the northern woods.

The Roperite is said to be incredibly fast, with no living animal able to outrun it. Its skin is also impervious to thorns, allowing it to move easily though the chaparral.

The Turtle Bottoms Monster is an anteater-like creature found living along the Saline River Watershed in Harrisburg Illinois. The Turtle Bottoms Monster is described as an anteater and an ape hybrid it has a long anteater-like snout and in some reports it has four legs. According to some people the Turtle Bottoms Monster is a hybrid animal released into the wild by the Federal Government. The Turtle Bottoms Monster is not afraid of people and even approached people on the local make-out point in 1960 and even spawned a few searches for the creature but no evidence of the Turtle Bottoms Monster was ever found.

Another anecdotal animal. But that’s alright. We shall add it to the menagerie of mystery. 1960 was a long time ago these days. Never heard of it before. That’s not an uncommon thing, though.

I hope they get a whole mess of ’em cloggin’ up Harrisburg’s doin’s. That’d be perfect.

SONG FACTS: A native of Cameroon, Manu Dibango has enjoyed a long career as a musician and songwriter, developing a fusion of Jazz and African musical styles. This song which was released in 1972, came early in Dibango’s career, and was introduced to American listeners by the legendary New York City radio DJ Frankie Crocker on FM’s WBLS radio station.

This song made the US Top 40 only briefly, but later became notable for 2 reasons. The first is its refrain, “Ma-ma-se, ma-ma-sa, ma-ma-kossa,” which Michael Jackson borrowed for his 1983 hit “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’,” but without Dibango’s permission. Dibango eventually reached an out-of-court settlement with Jackson over the lyrics. The second reason is the genré, and the pop culture phenomenon, that the song set in motion.

“Soul Makossa” was so popular as a dance song that its style began to be emulated and further developed by American dance musicians – and eventually took on a life of its own. As a result, this is now widely regarded as the first Disco record.

The Delgeth is a flesh-eating monster from Navajo mythology. One of the anaye, or alien spirits, it resembles an antelope or elk. It is sometimes said to have no head, but a huge maw filled with razor-sharp teeth.

The legend says that the heroic Nayanezgani slew the beast with the assistance of some of the land’s native animals.

A very strange legend to be sure.

Improbable, to say the least, but keep in mind that outside of our arrogance we basically know diiddly squat about nearly everything… so… yeah.

Kenny Chesney – While He Still Knows Who I Am – An Alzheimer’s Tribute

kabrengle
Published on Jul 1, 2012

In November 2011, my father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. From that day forward, I was determined he would not forget me … or I him. Kenny Chesney’s While He Still Knows Who I Am is exactly where I am right now, unscripted. A tribute to all who are living with and dealing with Alzheimer’s disease.

Oh Lord, more tears for another beautiful song. All the same feelings. My dad… I think he was catching it but he rejected me for the last three years so I spent that time in anguish wondering why and then a broken hip took him from us. Oh God I just want to die. Maybe then I could ask him… why.

 

JAY ALLEN – BLANK STARES

***ALL PROCEEDS GO TO ABE’S GARDEN***
http://abesgarden.org

My name is Jay Allen. I’m a country music artist and songwriter signed to Sony/ATV in Nashville, TN.

My mom has early onset Alzheimer’s, and at the age of only 52, she’s now showing signs of stage 6. It’s something that has affected my family deeply, something that we can’t escape, and it brings me to my knees most days.

I grew up in small town rural Iowa with mom(Sherry), dad(Joe), and my two baby sisters(Cassie and Amber). We didn’t have a lot, but our parents always seemed to find a way, sometimes working 2-3 jobs each to make sure we had enough. Looking back, it was a humbling childhood, but what I think affected me most was my mother’s affection and selflessness towards all of us. She always put her children first, no matter what the sacrifice. If we wanted some stupid toy for Christmas, she would work the overtime or pick up an extra shift. She didn’t care what it took, she just wanted us to be happy.

When I was in middle school, I remember asking my mom what she would change to make her life better if she could go back in time.

Her response was, “I wouldn’t change a thing. I was made to be a good mom. I live for you kids.”

Now that I’m older, I hold onto those words as I watch this horrible disease steal away a beautiful woman. Sometimes I want to yell at God when I hear her stumble through a simple sentence, or when I look at her and feel like she’s not even there anymore. It makes me so mad, and it kills me that I can’t fix it. But then there are the moments of hope, when dad brings her to visit Nashville and we dance all night at The Sutler…or when she grins and taps her foot to the live music…or when I wrap my arms around her, and she takes a deep breath and says, “I’ve missed you, Jay.”

Her words, the good memories, and the moments of joy – that’s what I hold onto.

As a songwriter and up-and-coming artist, I feel that I have an obligation to be a positive role-model, and to also give back by utilizing the gifts that God has blessed me with. In realizing the importance of this, I finally found the courage to write a song about my experience, called “Blank Stares”. My vision is that this song will raise awareness, bring hope to those affected, and most importantly, become a weapon in the fight against Alzheimer’s.

So please, download your copy of “Blank Stares” today, share, and dream with me. Music is powerful. Let’s do something with it.

With all my heart,
Jay Allen

I need to listen to this again. Maybe a couple more times. It sounded great, but I didn’t really hear it as I was crying my eyes out.

For over a decade my life was devoted to full time for my aunt who was taken by this incredibly awful disease. Incredibly awful doesn’t adequately describe how frightening it is … especially for the person who has it. I did it 24/7 and gave up working. It was for love, it taught me so much about what love is and it was I think also to give some some atonement for my disgusting neglect of my mom as a teen and early twenties self-centered asshole. Mom was taken by Multiple Sclerosis starting when I was ten years old and I cry myself to sleep every night asking her forgiveness. We had her home till we physically couldn’t and lucked out into the only good nursing home in the state for her last ten years and I hardly ever visited. I was and am a sack of shit. It’s one of the reasons I long for death … it’s simply what I deserve. She was a beautiful mommy and so devoted to us it took your breath away. She even turned me on to Forteana.

Oh God help us all.
