#TrackoftheDay: “You Can Find the Feeling”

The Master Musicians of Jajouka led by Bachir AttarMorocco (2000) The world found out about this group in the 1950s, apparently. And they went wide when Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones produced an album of theirs. I found out about them when this song closed out the soundtrack for the excellent Tarsem Singh movie, The Cell. And it’s been on my musical todo list to do a deeper dive on their stuff. If you seek them out, be aware the group split into two different groups in the 199...

Goodbye to Gerry of Gerry and the Pacemakers.

The Guardian reports: "Marsden’s family said in a statement on Sunday: 'Gerry died earlier today after a short illness in no way connected with Covid-19. His wife, daughters and grandchildren are devastated.'... And his heart has taken some battering over the years. He had a triple bypass, an aortic valve replacement and ironically he also had a pacemaker.... Gerry and the Pacemakers played regularly alongside the Beatles. Both groups were part of Brian Epstein’s Liverpool-based management stabl...

Rainbow Family – George Lewis

Rainbow Family by George Lewis My practice has been to list only listening that is new to me here, and technically this is not music that is new to me. It is music that has been recently re-released, so it gets a pass. One should never let one’s rules get in the way of good music, or sharing of such music.

Australia’s National Anthem Gets An Anti-Racist Tweak

The anthem – which replaced “God Save the Queen” only in 1984, though it had been written in the late 19th century – previously had a tweak from “Australia’s sons” to “Australians all,” and now it’s from “young and free” to “one and free” – including the peoples who have been on the continent for 60,000 years. – The New York Times

I'll take "Manhattan" — copyright-free at long last!

  "Manhattan" was written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart for the 1925 revue "Garrick Gaieties," Wikipedia explains:  The song describes, in several choruses, the simple delights of Manhattan for a young couple in love. The joke is that these "delights" are really some of the worst, or cheapest, sights that New York has to offer; for example, the stifling, humid stench of the subway in summertime is described as "balmy breezes", while the noisy, grating pushcarts on Mott Street are "gently...

The Busiest Composer In The Bleakest Year

Tyshawn Sorey has had numerous – as in, numerous – premieres and commissions this year. The composer, who straddles jazz and classical, “has been on everyone’s radar at least since winning a MacArthur ‘genius’ grant in 2017, but the shock to the performing arts since late winter brought him suddenly to the fore as an artist at the nexus of the music industry’s artistic and social concerns.” – The New York Times

I’ve taken up outdoor swimming. I just thought you should know | Fiona Maddocks

OK, I only started last month and I don’t know how long I’ll manage it, but for now it’s making me glowWe all eat our words. “No way” sneakily turns into “OK, maybe”, then “yes”. You vow never, ever, to wear Crocs, then you see your smart friend in a yellow pair and British Vogue has named them the It-shoe of the winter season (true) and suddenly you’re weakening. My volte face is more extreme. I’ve joined the thousands who’ve taken up outdoor swimming during lockdown. I don’t much like swimming...
