On June 15, 2015 Donald Trump came down the escalator in Trump Towers. On that day he announced he would be running for president of the United States. We were confused. We were appalled. A reality show star running for president? How could this be? The mainstream media had a good laugh. I can remember the wry smiles on the faces of the pundits on MSNBC and CNN. Although Fox News had a different idea, they also were a bit confused. The mockery of Donald Trump started on that day and continued throughout the campaign.

My first listen to “Up There,” by Trevor Hall from Fruitful Darkness, by my friend, Rick Ramirez, in the living room of our mutual friend Vasu. Rick indicated that we should listen closely to this new Trevor track as it described Trevor’s profound visit with Sri Siddhi Ma. Rick said the experience of listening to the track was very much like a visit with Ma. Rick was correct. Since then, I have listened in quiet reverence to this track while either visualizing Ma in my mind or looking at the image featured in this header

Got to go back, Van Morrison’s first track on the No Guru, no method, no teacher release. This is a track I listen to when I am immersed in the creative process. This Van release is oft overlooked and less familiar to some. This album is as full as Astral weeks, birthed of course, from the womb of Astral. You must purchase this CD for your beach and or mountain trips from Durham. No better soundtrack than this for the pastoral drive, sorting laundry, washing dishes.

A COMMON PROBLEM

I watched the “hard to say it” master performance at least 20X in 24 hours and each time notice something more nuanced and subtle in the intonation, tone, and delivery of a song not penned by the performer. Then, if you have any tears of joy left, watch and or listen to Gregory re-imagine for the better, Bruno Mars “Just the way you are”
Episode 7 Season 2-entitled Forks, The Richie Hero’s Journey episode utilized David Byrnes’s song, Glass, Concrete, and Stone, with great effect. This listener was sonically smitten with the orchestrally rhythmic, vocally nuanced pop masterpiece, “Everything Possible When You’re an Animal”, Glass, Concrete, and Stone song, to the precipice edge of obsession.
Who was the creative force behind this jumpy little world music sortie? Could it be that Robert Plant had Paul Simon’s yearnings for a broader world music horizon? Is this limiting the input of the rest of the members? Not! The story goes Jimmy Page got the idea for the Samba beat from a World Cup soccer tournament in 1978.
How important is Bon Iver to your musical soundscape? I would argue forcefully Bon Iver is important to all of us who care about the ineffable, ineluctable obliqueness of spare emotively delivered lyrics, electronic voice sampling, proto drumming, solo acoustic, orchestrally abundant, emotional soundscapes.
My first exposure to Mandolin Orange was an early, first year, performance of Mandolin Orange at The ENO festival river stage. It was Andrew’s deep Southern baritone that lured me to the small shade stage in a stand of trees. A mix of lyrically mature, subtle well-crafted songs, kept me close to the stage for the rest of the set. This duo was different from the average blend of Eno performers that year and certainly chronologically younger than the majority.
Rickie Lee Jones is unlike any other musician. It is not uncommon for us to describe a musician as unique, unrivaled, and even head and shoulders above the competition, yet Rickie Lee Jones is on her own planet when it comes to originality, artistry, and command of her vocal instrument gift.

It has taken us far too long, 7 years almost, to feature a tribute to our most deserving American Jazz singer, Ella Fitzgerald. Perhaps we deferred due to the plethora of living singers calling for our attention first. This may have something to do with our chief editor’s advancing age, the onslaught of early dementia. Regardless, please accept our full apologies for taking this long.

A hot sauce is a critical augmentation to certain dishes (foods). My must-have hot sauce list includes but is not limited to eggs (prepared any way), scrambled tofu, home fry potatoes, most any meat analog, burritos, and the newest foot soldier, potato salad (especially Potato Salads that lean to the sweeter side). We are attempting to balance sweet and savory—our palette tips in favor of savory most of the time. An everyday table hot sauce is a target for all hot sauce lovers. Cholula is my go-to favorite for all hot sauce needs.

Welcome to the Forward Party!
I started the Forward Party for a few big reasons. The main one is one we can all see – the current two-party duopoly is not working. While the two major parties have different issues, we can all see that polarization is getting worse and worse, with 42% of both parties regarding the other as not just mistaken, but evil. Neither side is able to meaningfully solve problems, so we all get angrier and angrier.

Some folks play 5D chess, while others remain in 2D chess worlds. Something about the recent Chaos energy surrounding Dilbert creator Scott Adams seems dissonant with the Dilbert jaded color palette.

The “Hamilton” Broadway musical Uber hit of the 21st Century may leave one with the impression that Hamilton was well loved during his historical time. What is clear from contemporaries and contemporaneous writings for Hamilton’s period is that Hamilton and Adams/Jefferson had distinct differences on the constitution, and future direction of these United States of America.
“Tift is an important Artist”] in my life for a myriad of reasons. TIft Merritt is one of the first artists I caught live in Durham, NC at the Americana music series at Fowlers Gourmet Market loading dock. From the moment I heard her sing the first note I was smitten. TIft has such a great Southern roots/rock/blues/country/ (see Americana) impossible to pigeonhole voice. So many comparisons to great singers of the past yet her voice is her own-unique blend of styles and nature. Did I mention the conversational persuasive style TIft employs when conveying the subtly nuanced emotions in her songs
Durham in 1995 was a weight loss destination, not a place where James Beard-winning chefs and or nominees prepared straight from the Divine pie crusts and gourmet cheeseburgers. Geer Street Beer Garden was an abandoned service station, and Motorco was still an active garage. Durham was the home of the Rice diet, and many folks came here for Duke University Health care, particularly the Rice diet program
You may not be familiar with this song as it was not a major radio track from the Darkness and Light Album. It is my favorite track as it has blues, R&B, and Gospel elements and it is the most honest and autobiographical of all songs penned and performed by Mr. John Legend. One finds oneself proclaiming “Amen”!

I heard Afro Blue for the first time when the choreography for the Dayton Dance Company ADF performance featured this track at Stewart Theatre back in 1996. I was mesmerized by the dancer’s hypnotic synchronized movement to this Afro Blue Coltrane track. Such an incredible tour de force the way it builds momentum, from a very subtle intro, middle, and crescendo (inspirational)!
What occurred to Nashville and mainstream country music is our fault. Our collective fault due to the passive way we comply when our music devolves to a corporate advertisement rather than a human expression drawn from the drama of “real” life.

A necessary telling by a humane, humorous, empathetic singer-songwriter.
After many years from the first viewing, I just watched Milos Forman’s Amadeus (Director’s Cut) last night. I mainly wanted to confirm my initial impression of Tom Hulce, Mozart’s performance as more than helium laugh farcical. In contrast, actors F. Murray Abraham, Solieri, and Tom Hulce’s Mozart are readily apparent. Was this contrast more indication of acting understanding or lack thereof or prescribed by the screenplay, director, and Mr. Hulce’s full-throttle performance as the ribald, entitled spoiled prodigy, Amadeus Mozart?

Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins (both natural leaders of the band called Genesis -different approaches and styles-yet quite complimentary when in sync) Notice how they work together on these two different live versions of the same track.
