I can see that. One time I was climbing an 11is mile climb and there was a guy outside playing drums. He was really good and I could hear him for a long time as it carried through the canyon. My cadence timed with the drumbeat for a while and it was amazing.

The great Jeff Beck, the fabulous Tal Wilkenfeld, and the sweet violin of Lizzie Ball.

Sounds like fun. A lot of us would enjoy that if we could play.

Love Horace Silver. Last time I saw my dad I got in the car to leave and "Song for my Father" was on the radio when I started the car.
Love Andy Bey, too.

Don't choose your songs from the Greatest Hits of the Lawrence Welk Show and you'll be fine.

I have even attended two live Welk touring performances (after he died) with regular cast members from the 70's, e.g. Myron Floren, Mary Lou Metzger, Ava Barber, etc. My story and I'm sticking to it.

Not sure why this song has been running through my head...so much so my 5 yo daughter now knows the lyrics.
I've been playing the bass line on my fender bass lately too. Man these guys were talented, they wrote it, sang it, played their instruments, and good looking chaps. They recorded a follow-up album then that was pretty much it for player. The bass player became an actor on a soap opera.

Thinking about the title for this thread inspired me to google "musical farts" Public Service Announcement: Don't. Just... don't...

Edit: I think I feel a bit nauseous right now...

Some of my most favorite music is the folk music of the late 50s and the early 60s.

System of a Down -- because the revolution has come around again.
Rage Against the Machine -- same reason.
Maria McKee, solo and with Lone Justice.
A bunch of jazz, from Bird to Brubeck.
Oh man... Lone justice... Maria McKee.
Lately it's been Ween and Frank Zappa
Just yesterday the leader of a smaller group of musicians from the city band I'm in, informed me that "We're getting the band back together". The smaller group is usually a five piece sax group and we play a lot of traditional German music for the retirement homes. Some Dixie and Jazz as well.

Too many to name, where to start??
These masters are releasing a new recording. I hope to be able to see them if the clubs can reopen.
Joshua Redman, Brad Mehldau, Christian McBride, and Brian Blade:

Sometimes I take a Bluetooth speaker when I ride around Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and put John Coltrane and Eric Dolphy on on shuffle. What's cooler than riding down Central Park West listening to "Central Park West"?
