On Ornette Coleman:

leave a comment »

If you’ve never listened to Ornette Coleman then you’ve never truly experienced Jazz, at least thats how I view his work. His music defies convention and requires that you only enjoy music and share it with others.

coleman1When asked to play a 12-bar blues, Ornette Coleman fingered his plastic saxophone and played nothing…he’s felt more nothing than you or I know. – Richard Farina

Go out and find a copy of his most recent work Sound Grammar, sure you can find it splattered across youtube and just let the music overtake you. Cheers.

HMV Idiocy

with 6 comments

It’s really great when you’re checking out at HMV with an album you’ve just picked up and the clerk says to you: “Oh man, this was a real disappointment.”

What the fuck man? Way to ruin my vibe and the excitement of the album. Stupid douche bags. I’ll be calling and speaking with the manager tomorrow morning. It’s one thing if I ask or solicit an opinion, it’s another to have my music vibe ruined for me. Douchery.

I’ve been playing Neon Bible by Arcade Fire over and over again this past week. Sometimes a song just sticks with you and it continues to improve the more you listen to it. I am sure we all have tracks or moments where you just continue to listen over and over and over….hitting play again as I type this out. Cheers.

This next statement makes me sound like I’m a really old man, which I know is not true, but I was chatting with Erin earlier and we both realized we’re getting to that point where many of our favorite artists are getting close to passing: Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, etc. A whole generation of artists around this age, while they’re not ancient, they are not so young as well. Kind of depressing.  I realize that people are constantly dying but I’m edging close to 30 and many of the artists I grew up with who were in their prime, and many who are now well past their prime, they’re just getting really old and are going to start to die off and its just fucked up to think about. What a depressing post. Ah well, enjoy some Leonard Cohen:
