Haven’t had a good music notes post in a very long time. Still in my concert drought, but that will be ending soon. With new albums on the way from Drive-By Truckers, John Moreland, and Waxahatchee, and a new song from Margo Price dropped this week, there’s a lot of promise for this year, at […]

I don’t have any particularly compelling personal musical experiences since the last Music Notes post. My concert schedule has a lull in it right now and until the beginning of February actually

The biggest musical event for me since the last of these posts was seeing the Taylor Ho Bynum Sextet at Firehouse 12 in New Haven last Friday. Bynum likes working in larger ensembles, which is great b

Obviously, the most important music news of the past few weeks was the death of the great Ginger Baker. One of the interesting things about him is that Cream wasn’t even a very good band. Obviously, all three were great players, but since they couldn’t or wouldn’t play together, they never gelled, despite the hype […]

It has been entirely too long since I have written up one of these posts. I am very busy this semester, partially explaining less blogging than usual. But hey, one of those reasons is that I have seen

I haven’t done one of these in quite awhile, largely because until the last week, I was too busy to listen to many new albums. Then I listened to so many this week that it’s really too man

Janet Weiss leaving Sleater-Kinney is extremely depressing news, especially as while I have seen her play before, I have never actually seen S-K and will fix that problem on the fall tour. So I guess I will never see the classic band. She talks about the band going in new directions, but who knows what […]

Memorial Day weekend is a good time for some music notes. I had the honor of seeing the amazing pianist Matthew Shipp perform on Friday, at Firehouse 12 in New Haven. I had seen him before, a solo sho

It’s been entirely too long since I did one of these posts. Since I published the last, I’ve seen three live shows. Most important is seeing Kris Kristofferson playing with The Strangers, Merle Haggard’s old band, at the Chevalier Theatre in Medford, Massachusetts. I had seen Kris once before, at an event in Santa Fe […]

Let’s talk tunes! Nipsey Hussle isn’t someone whose music I knew very well but his murder affected a lot of people and so it seems appropriate to lead off with a link to it. I talked about

I don’t have anything particularly profound to say on music today. But we all need a break from the Mueller report and I have listened to a bunch of new albums recently, so it seems to be time f
