Ron Myhr commented on Jake Schepps's blog post 'Bill Frisell and “The Great Flood”'
"Too bad, I'd kind of looked forward to a Frisell versionof In A Silent Way! You'd probably like his Nashville CD.  A while ago now, but very nice.  And, of course, his work on the Majestic Silver Strings, Buddy Miller's…"

"Can you give a link for the In A Silent Way you are referring to?  The original Miles Davis has John McLaughlin on guitar."

"And now I see from an article on ND that Frisell is working with Lucinda Williams, and that a full album of the collaboration will be released early next year.  Does the man ever sleep?"

"One's head can spin trying to get a handle on Frisell.  I've been recently thinking about him a lot, not actually because I was trying to think about him, but because he was coming up in so many different contexts. I'm very fond…"

"I thought it was neat when my son, who wasn't so much as a remote glimmer in anyone's eye back in the Gordon/Wray days, discovered rockabilly.  Quite independently of me.  I was able to point him to those early albums.  Very…"

Ron Myhr commented on Sad Songs Keep The Devil Away's blog post 'Jenny Scheinman - The Littlest Prisoner (Album Review)'
"Nice review, now I don't have to do one! I love Jenny Scheinman and everything she does.  Since she does mainly jazz instrumental work (on her own or as one of Bill Frisell's go-to band members) that's mainly what I know her as,…"

Ron Myhr replied to Randy Brown's discussion 'What Are You Listening To?'
"That song with Ryan Adams is on the Trinity Revisited recording, which comes with both a CD and a DVD.  The DVD concert recording is outstanding, with great 5.1 sound and lots of the special ambience of the Trinity Church where it was recorded.…"

Great music cheap!

I see that the music site is having a boxing-day sale, including a number of albums that have been featured here on ND.  It's only $4.44 for very good-quality (usually 320kbps) rips, $2 additional for full CD quality.  Paypal accepted. 

Includes Canadian artists like Rose Cousins, Amelia Curran, Ruth Minnikin, Kelly Joe Phelps, Jenn Grant, Whitehorse, Old Man Luedecke, Jim Bryson, Danny Michel, etc. 

A great chance to stock up on fine artists at a real discount, and…

Christmas Music 2012

Well, it's that time of year;  time to hear the repetitive sound of Christmas song schlock everywhere we go.  So let's have something of a corrective to that joy-destroying experience. 

What are your favorite worthy Christmas recordings, ones that you, the sophisticated rootsy populace, actually like to hear and to play during the holiday season?

I'll start with a few of mine, some new to me, others going back years.

First, and first only because it's old (and good,…

CD Review: "Kings and Queens" by Blackie and the Rodeo Kings

Male/female duets;  on the one side Emmylou Harris, Lucinda Williams, Rosanne Cash, Cassandra Wilson, Patti Scialfa, Serena Ryder, Amy Helm and sundry accomplished sisters;  on the other Blackie and the Rodeo Kings.  I was worried.



I've been a fan of Blackie and the Rodeo Kings for many years, and look forward to the new releases with eager anticipation.  I'd heard a duets…

CD Review: "Tell My Sister" by Kate & Anna McGarrigle


Kate & Anna McGarrigle are the iconic Canadian folk duo at the center (with many others) of the seventies folk revival.  Accomplished songwriters and wonderful performers, they were contemporary with (and influenced) the early careers of stars like Emmylou Harris, Maria Muldaur and Linda Ronstadt.  All performed their songs and used their harmonies;  Linda Ronstadt had a huge hit with Anna's "Heart Like a Wheel".  But no one did the McGarrigle's songs like the… Continue

Ron...Sloan Wainwright may not be a spring chicken but she IS younger than I am -- therefore: the "young lady" remark has no weird be-littling. Besides, even if I didn't know her age, her "truly affecting vocal style" -- as you put it -- doesn't make her sound as if she is that "elderly." If you know what I mean. Respectfully, John
