I wonder what future generations will think of The Beatles. Their body of work is so absurdly outstanding; it'd be a shame if they're ignored. Personally, I prefer The Rolling Stones, but objectively, the Beatles are the best band ever.

Beatles were certainly groundbreaking with the word salad and orchestration (as were The Beach Boys and Pink Floyd from that era). Gen Y are trying to tear them down (as they do anything their parents like). I assume the next gen will fall back in love with them.

PS looking forward to hearing the newly mastered White Album with new material.

I prefer the Bee Gees. They were around for year and year BEFORE their Saturday Night Fever hits.



Ruzious, I do agree with you that the Beatles put out an "absurdly outstanding" body of work. :nod:

I love Pink Floyd as well. Their live performance is mesmerizing. :o

pix is out of date - Our bass player has left the band due to moving out

Gotta miss it this weekend, but enjoyed the time I heard you all play. She was a fine bass, got a new one?


Thank you.

We do not have a permanent official replacement. But we do have a guy who sits in
when he is available. He's in a few other bands so he is: 1. good and 2. not always available.

We're going to play Lake Anne Plaza in Reston on Oct 27. 11-1. It'll be free.

We don’t have an art thread, but since banksy is in Massive Attack I’ll drop it here. I think Banksy just surpassed everyone else on my idols list...

I saw that too. Pretty funny, though as with similar pranks, it seems that many of the ostensible "victims" are likely co-conspirators, and the primary audience is really the people the prank is reported to. It seems more a performance piece than a prank, though a very good performance piece.

We should follow up on how traditionalists in the art world react, especially to the fact that a fairly small scale spray paint on canvass from a living artist "reportedly" fetched $1.4 million or something. Prank or not, expect his sales and prices to go up.

PS: Not sure how much traffic it would get, but I wouldn't object to an art thread. We currently have Basquiat in the politics thread.

The group I play with, The Stewart Sisters, was recently invited to play
a few songs to open a house concert featuring blues guy Robert Lighthouse.

So after we finished and Robert was getting ready to start he asked
me if I wanted to sit in with him on a song or 2 which I was flattered
to accept. I'm the guy playing lap style dobro with his back to the camera.

Pretty sure this band will be huge within a few years - finally a real rock n roll band. Yeah, I wish they sounded a little less like Led Zeppelin, but that's ok. No relation to Fred Van Fleet. Kind of an odd name, since they're all male, but it probably makes more sense than using their last name - Kiszka.

Yeah these guys are stars. A marketers dream, gets the old guys who love classic rock and any kids left who like guitar. My 14 year and his friends don’t like any guitar based music except Led Zeppelin and GVF. 50 years from now I think the Beatles and Led Zeppelin are the most likely rock era bands to still be listened to.

Ya got me pegged as one of the old guys looking for the classic rock sound - that's exactly what hooked me. And also, those 3 brothers are all legit musicians. It's not just the lead singer carrying them - hopefully his vocal chords stay healthy. His twin brother is an terrific guitarist, and their younger brother is a phenom on guitar and piano. Just 22, 22 and 19 years old.

The Beatles are/were way ahead of any other band in terms of 2 important aspects:

1. cultural impact (breadth and depth)

2. commercial success - no other band has come close to the number of top 10 hits they had.

Bumping this for Zards who responded to my Clifford Brown link the other day. Talk about great trumpeters dying young, this is the incredible Booker Little who passed at 23. Hard to imagine where he would have taken it, given where he did take it.

This was his short-lived quintet with the incomparable Eric Dolphy (also dead too young, & senselessly).

The other players are Mal Waldron -- one of the great, & relatively unknown, pianists -- bassist Richard Davis & Ed Blackwell, one of the most gifted, musical drummers in jazz history (& when I hear him I do feel like I'm hearing jazz drummers from the whole of the tradition -- Zutty Singleton forward).

Enjoy.

How ironic. I subscribe to a few "jazz" pages on Facebook and about an hour ago I came across an Eric Dolphy recording of John Coltrane's "Naima." Another great trumpet player, Donald Byrd, is on this recording. Dolphy was a rare bird with a unique sound. He's playing bass clarinet here.

Wow -- that is super-strange, Zards, as I was listening to that very recording of Naima at about 8:30pm last night -- just before I thought of Booker Little, recalled this quintet album, & decided to send it your way!

Donald Byrd wound up a professor at U of Delaware (I live in Lewes, DE). My buddy James Jones (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Jones_(psychologist)) was going to introduce me to him, but DB passed away before he got the chance.

Fortunately -- unlike Clifford & Booker Little -- Donald Byrd did not die young: he lived to be 80 -- perhaps b/c he was married to this beautiful woman? -- https://www.flickr.com/photos/147039490@N04/31030019514

Byrd was a wonderful player & quite an interesting individual. He moved away from jazz to R&B & fusion in the '70s -- why? -- when he lived in DC & taught at Howard (where, btw, he also got a JS, a law degree, for some unknown reason!).

Here he is practicing on the NY Subway :) -- https://www.flickr.com/photos/147039490@N04/31753992831

That version of Naima, btw, was recorded only about 2 weeks before Eric Dolphy died in Germany (of an undiagnosed diabetic attack).

Edit -- a precious memory: standing in the freezing air outside a downtown Chicago club at maybe 14-15 years old (they wouldn't let me in!) listening to Dolphy & Little for @ an hour. I have no idea how/why they happened to be playing in Chicago....
