Victor's brother played with Oteil the last time they came by these parts, so it's funny you mention those bands playing so close by. Should be great shows. Speaking of great bass players, Edgar Meyer will be performing at Sewanee October 6th. Since he composes and plays every kind of music imaginab...

Well, whattaya know? And they spelled your last name correctly in the sound clip box! But...I can't get it to play. Then again, I'm on a very limited laptop right now; I'll try again when I get to the university.

To me, the Jon Anderson snippet is somewhat reminiscent of his work on Olias of Sunhillow . I'm just curious if he has continued to use that style of vocal looping in his later work. I only have Olias and Animation , both released well over 20 years ago. Shocking how well Olias holds up over time! I...

A sample: "They were incorporating classical elements into what they were doing, and they were making all these crazy amazing sounds in the studio, none of which I could understand at the time. I had no insight into how they were doing these things, but I definitely was interested in finding out." A...

Fred Makes the Paper

And no, it wasn't the funny pages! Apparently the Chattanooga Times-Free Press called up some old fogies at recording studios around town to get their thoughts on the 40th anniversary of the Beatle's Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band release. I would have missed this completely if not for my lov...

I expect that the lack of responses to your post, David, reflects the fact that the rest of us are spending hours in confessional (or in the closet for Presbies like me) repenting the sin of envy!

Another place to find heavily processed Rhodes - to my ears at least, I may be deceived - is the new Porcupine Tree album. IIRC, the tune (opus actually) "Anesthetize" features some nastily distorted electric piano. You can also hear Rhodes on the older Happy The Man records/discs, and I believe the...

It was a crying shame that I was unable to go. Odd...when I lived in Ohio, I saw them each time they came around, and now that I live in Tennessee I've missed them everytime they've played Chattanooga. Nothing for it but to post a CGT Artist Spotlight this afternoon on DLBN: http://www.thedividingli...

Even at this late date, I don't know yet if I can go! They always seem to come on a weeknight, drat the luck. :? Say, how's this for a lineup?

Must've been 2005:

Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, Robbe Delcamp's pipe organ recital, Adrian Belew, the Jazz Gentlemen (from Atlanta), Salem Hill & Glass Hammer at Belmont

And I had no desire at all to see the new Fantastic Four until I saw the silver surfer previews-awesome! I still can't quite understand how we get another F4 given the inanity of the first - guess it made some moola. Was I ever glad I saw that outside, for free, with free popcorn and Dippin' Dots. ...

Ouch. Double-ouch. My mom has a beautiful piano, and I hate to see such an instrument come to such an end, Borge notwithstanding. Reminds me: Before moving from Austin, we sold our upright piano. The folks that bought it hired some movers. Now we lived on a moderately steep hill, and the guys parked...

There's a good one called India Mahal on Brainard Road right where East Brainard hits it. I've been trying to get there for years and finally got around to it a month ago and liked it- I have to go back and try more of the menu! There's another in the strip mall by 153 where Home Depot used to be (...
