hope everybody had a good weekend. let me contribute to your thoughts with some music. I bought some cds today. Here's one of the songs from one of the cds:
don't forget where you came from:
I played a basement gig saturday night, a grand old time. check out some of it:
"little wing" - Jimi Hendrix - Toms
Now I will take this space to provide you with a very special 'then and now' glimpse into the unfolding of time. Here is something that will provide you with another signification of time's passage. In my eyes We are perpetually progressing cyclically like a cosmic flower constantly unfolding itself, constantly blooming. Bloom-field. Mike Bloomfield. But dig this! here are two videos of the same song played with a year in between them.
I hope that your happiness levels are steady if not increasing. I also hope that you're making a positive impact on the Earth that we all live in. I also hope that you are nourishing your soul with a healthy dosage of the Funk.
Let me give you a brief update on what's going on with my own personal musical endeavours:
Currently I am 85% finished with burning the 50 demo cds and then I will enter phase 3 and send them out across the USA to those of y'all who messaged me an address to send it to. Sorry it took so long, but unlike 'roots' I've been tediously burning each cd by hand which is a very toilsome process, but I do it because I love you. But if you want to get your address on the mailing list, act promptly, for sendoffs commence soon.
Also I've got 5 performances around san francisco lined up for next week, and more forthcoming. Hit me up if you're in the area and want to come check it out. As of now I'm not sure what the setlists will consist of, but I do know that the shows will be acoustic and will potentially incorporate slide and harmonica usage. I'm going to aim to mix it up set-wise every night, and perhaps if videos are taken, I'll throw them up on the blog.
Here's some music:
Sly and the Family Stone, a Jam
My Morning Jacket with a nod to the Band
Some Who tomfoolery
That's all for today, keep the funk train rollin'.
I am sorry that I have been away from the blog; I have spent the weekend rambling and only now do I find myself in front of the keyboard. I hope that everybody is happy as time gradually unfolds for soon it will be March which means a much-awaited Springtime in the year 2011. Now that some time has passed, I have some things to share with you:
one of the most prominent modern bands, the Radioheads: they made a new record and released it this past week. check out this oldies act, Gnarls Barkley, do a rendition of an 'in rainbows' track. I would attest that this video is evidence for Cee-Lo's talent as a singer.
Alright now check out this song. that's Jorma Kaukonen, legendary bay area musician, playing guitar on this Jefferson Airplane number off of their 'surrealistic pillow'.
Some of the best music advice you'll never hear:
Let it be known that P Sizzle and I recorded a video for the weekly cover song round 2, but due to uploading troubles, it'll come later in the week. I still love you though
