What Are You Listening To?


Recommended Posts

"Blue Rondo à la Turk" is a jazz standard composition by Dave Brubeck. It appeared on the album Time Out in 1959. It is written in 9\8 time, with one side theme in 4\4, and the choice of rhythm was inspired by the Turkish aksak time signatures.

Yea, rather odd for Western listeners.

 With my earlier post of the Who's "Sunrise" and your upload of Les Paul & Mary Ford with that reel-to-reel visible, Eucalyptus P. Millstone, Les Paul also is credited as the primary pioneer of flanging - a tape effect that Pete Townshend employed on the following track to my knowledge:

It's 1972, and I'm in my '67 VW Bug, windows down, driving through the streets of downtown Los Angeles, and blasting this militant Lennon-Ono outcry from stereo speakers..."

Remembering Dallas native Dusty Hill, who died last week. If you collected rock albums in the 70s, you had this one.  Still a favorite of mine.

 Like his counterpart here, Mister Guitar impacted popular music from both sides of the recording console. The Chet Atkins signature Country Gentleman can be heard here to my knowledge:

Whatta coinkydink! I had been thinking about offering some Chet Atkins.

Although both my parents were Jazz lovers, my father's musical tastes were a tad more expansive. Among his (comparatively) meager collection of records was Christmas with Chet Atkins.

Well, I'll never get arrested for being a ZZ Top fan. Of all the band's hits, only La Grange grabbed me -- and that was only because I thought the beginning sounded as though Lee Marvin was the vocalist.
