John O'Gallagher- Bouncin' Billie
Take your medicine. It may not go down easily, but I prescribe this gentle jazz skronk to help rinse away the taste of the nation's post-game hangover. I like how saxophonist John O'Gallagher teases convention while circling outside jazz tradition. I feel better already. If you think you need a daily dose of Rules of Invisibility, Vol. 2, try Amazon or O'Gallagher's label.
My review of Saturday's concert by the Count Basie Orchestra may have permanently squashed any chance I had at an elected office in this town.
Kansas City Click: I suggest the Rural Grit Monday matinee at The Brick. It's a friendly haven for scruffy acoustic types, of both the folk and anti-folk stripes.
