"Sorry, I don't see the relevance of that.  Certainly being an agnostic is a step in the right direction, and for Americans it is probably a big one.  But I just don't see it as an end point. "

Charlie Haden's Bass Sang Around the World, and Back, to The Shenandoah

On the new ECM CD, Last Dance, with pianist Keith Jarrett, Charlie Haden’s extended bass solo on “Where Can I Go Without You?” magnificently extends the melodic contours and the meaning of the song, as if the question had been deposited directly in the heart of the listener.Yet his epitaph might be another standard, “Everything Happens to Me.” Not as a solipsistic whine, this was a humble man. Rather, this musician lived a remarkably full creative existence, embracing all life’s wonders,…See More

Under Richard Thompson's Spell: From Tragic Loss to Knowingly Boyish Wisdom

The Pabst Theatre crowd leapt to its feet and roared, and you knew he was coming back. Not only that, 65-year-old Richard Thompson suddenly scurried back out to his guitar, like a kid pouncing onto a Christmas present.

I’m standing the conventional concert review on its head because, as excellent as Thompson was from start to finish, the surprising end was so remarkable and telling. Thompson proceeded to play a seven-song encore with little prompting, including Otis…

A Clean, Well-Lighted Place: A River Runs through Wisconsin's Roots Music Mecca

This is an updated version of an article originally published in July, 2010 in YourNews.com, Madison, Wisc., edition.

FORT ATKINSON – If the carp ain’t bitin’ folk here just start writin’ -- and singin’ and pickin’. Actually locals have caught white bass lately in the Rock River, beside the café named for the infamous scavenger that slouches toward river bottoms. Does the Café Carpe, a rootsy music mecca, befit its homely name?…

Drummer-Composer Devin Drobka Harbors Dreams for Surviving World in Bell Dance Songs

Devin Drobka evokes fellow composer-percussionist Paul Motian--one of his influences and heroes--like a kind of guiding light throughout this album. The CD-opening "Blues Town," exploits the fraught relationship between an elegantly unfolding, mournful melody and a rhythmic pulse that pushes the melody like waves lapping against a rocky shore.

Bell Dance Songs brims with such melodic and rhythmic tensions, often evoking dance-like rhythms, as a bell's ring might,…

The whole "Texas Troubadour" scene is a fascination to me...the heritage of it, the multi-faceted textures and the personalities all add up to an amazing snapshot of American culture and musical interpretation...My favorite part of it is the whole "anti-establishment" (as in Nashville) dynamic, which lends itself to the free creative expression, that I feel most captures the true essence of what music should be....imho.

Corey:
Thanks man. Your opinion counts for plenty. Can't wait to hear the music. Let's do a beer. They have a great selection at Brassiere on Monroe. Could even do that at lunchtime say on a Monday or Wednesday or Friday. I teach other days.
Superbowl halftime made me think of your killer "Kashmir," I bet Bettye Lavette was impressed. Summer is always littered with bright moments that quickly disappear, but for no good reason. Memory matters.
Let me know,
K
