It's hard for a modern listener to fully appreciate Kind of Blue. So much of the jazz that came after it was influenced by it. When it first came out though, it must have sounded like nothing before it - almost alien.

To your point, even the musicians playing on it were probably not fully aware of the vision of Miles Davis. I have to listen to the whole thing tonight.

Dan,

Periodically, I get that CD out and listen to it over and over, maybe 25 times in two weeks or so, then put it away for a while. I never get tired of it. I still have the old vinyl, but don't have the turntable set up now. I think that album sounds different on vinyl.

I noticed on that video that the musicians are really, really concentrating. They look like they are in the middle of a calculus test or something mentally strenuous. How abut the guys standing off to the side having a smoke while they waited for their part to come up.

JTG, how about posting a link to a blues song you like! You too, Dan.

Bri,

Nice one! You ever seen Colin James?

Oh yeah, a few times. When he's not doing that, he also has a big band like that guy in the Stray Cats...pretty good actually.

I always have liked the big band thing that Brian Setzer has done. If he came to this area I would go see him for sure.


I had a great boss at a job in college, and he got me introduced to old-school country music. He had a lot of really old stuff, made me a lot of cassettes, most of which I still have. I really dislike what country music has become and I can't listen to it. But Loretta Lynn the early sixties was pretty sweet. This is way I think country music should sound.

A classic from The Tubes...

Warning, some language and a little more skin than I'm used to seeing on YouTube.

Nice one, Bri! That particular Yes album easily makes my top 20 all time best album list.
