The J.B. Horns- Slipstream
What's that? You demand a third consecutive post with out-of-print Maceo, Pee Wee and Fred? Well, since you insist. Here they are performing as the J.B. Horns in 1990. The dated production doesn't do them any favors, but all three men offer fine solos on this innocuous groove. I'm still awfully shaky about living in a world without James Brown.
Brazilian composer Braguinha has died.
My review of Tuesday's Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert is here.
I continue to carefully study the new Village Voice jazz poll. I'm frantically searching for glimmers of hope. The presence of few artists under the age of forty is damning.
