BOBBY "BLUE" BLAND MP3

Bobby "Blue" Bland - "Lovin' Blues". Bobby "Blue" Bland died yesterday. I saw him sing a few years ago, at the blues festival in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. His voice was still astounding and free. Maybe not as supple as in his youth but it flowed over his songs with the same astounding swiftness, as if it were melted butter. Still, my clearest memory of the show was the interest Bobby "Blue" showed in a young woman sitt... Source: saidthegramophone.com

    Abbey Lincoln - "Left Alone". Abbey Lincoln exaggerates her loneliness. She is not as alone as this. But this is what we do: we sing our sorrows in whole melodies. We shade our unhappy moments with stricken colours. We do not moderate. Listen to the trumpet and sax, painting a darker picture than the one they go home to. Listen to your heart, beating an acknowledging yes. But it is not so bad. It's a beautiful day, o...

    THURSDAY MORNING MP3

    Micachu and the Shapes and the London Sinfonietta - "Everything". Spending rapped knuckles like currency. Three punishments and you can buy a bowl of fruit. Makes you smug. Pear in your pocket, taunting teacher, asking for it. 3 o'clock; go home; dream of tearing the sidewalk with each rotation of a bicycle tire. Sometimes it gets so late that you can't remember if the minute-hand is long or short. It is so late and...

    Vampire Weekend - "Cousins". A train holiday across Essex, to meet yr cousins. Share a carriage with a man in an eyepatch with a broom moustache. Turns out he's related. He teaches you to snap your fingers in a different way. Stop in Danbury. Man at the shop, selling peppery cheese rolls, he's a cousin too. Cousins everywhere. A cousin at the used bookshop, opening pop-up books. A cousin at city hall, rubber-stamping...

    Jah Youssouf & Bintou Coulibaly - "Faco". Jah Youssouf & Bintou Coulibaly - "Sabou".This music is just claps, voices, snaps of fingers, a dry calabash guitar. Youssouf and Coulibaly are husband and wife. Their love is shown in the most plainest way: They sing together; Their voices trade like glances. But in a way, the recording is the thing that makes us believe them. We hear the sounds ...

    A Tribe Called Quest - "Can I Kick It". [buy]     "But they can't do this," shrieked Lou Reed. "It's my song! They're just taking my song?"      "Are they really, Lou?" said the Buddha.      "Yes! Listen to it! It's 'Walk on the Wild Side.' It's just 'Walk on the Wild Side.'"      "Only here and there," replied the Buddha.  ...
