Otomo Yoshihide

Why can't I place the song he plays on guitar? I sang along while he was playing, but just can't place it. Sharrock? Help!!!!

English Rose

OK, so I'm a bit of an Anglophile, nothing new to anyone who knows me. But damn if this isn't one of the greatest love songs ever.

Appears that I've found some use for this blog after all.

Wadada Leo Smith

Smith with the wonderful second incarnation of his Golden Quartet. I can't think of too many better groups on the scene today. Check out my two part interview with Wadada, who gave generously of his time.


Still one of the best live bands I've ever seen. Their recorded legacy doesn't come anywhere near matching what they manage to pull off live. Here's proof. The most intense YouTube performance I've yet seen.

Brute force

Sometimes only the perfect song, perfectly performed, will do. I swear, when Peter Murphy enters, I just about shit myself.
