How John Coltrane Introduced the World to His Radical Sound in the Groundbreaking Recording of “My Favorite Things” John Coltrane released “more significant works” than his 1960 “My Favorite Things,” says Robin Washington in a PRX documentary on the classic reworking of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Broadway hit. “A Love Supreme” is often cited as the zenith of the saxophonist’s career. “But if you tried to explain that song to an average listener, you would lose them. [“My Favorite Things”] is a definitive work that everyone knows, and anyone can listen to, and...

When ABBA Wrote Music for the Cold War-Themed Musical, Chess: “One of the Best Rock Scores Ever Produced for the Theatre” (1984) Chess is amazing. The simplicity of its characters and plot (capture the king!) can be appreciated and understood by children; the complexity of its tactics can consume an adult life. Despite its medieval origins—and stumpers for us moderns like the strategic importance of a bishop on the battlefield—chess remains as much a potent allegory for power and its tactics as it was 1,500 years ago in India when it was called “chaturanga.”  The game ha...

Nile Rodgers Tells the Story of How He Turned David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” from Folk to New Wave Funk

When David Bowie invited Chic guitarist and all-around funk/disco guitar genius Nile Rodgers to make an album of “hits” in Switzerland, Rogers remembers thinking, “okay, ‘hits’ with David Bowie, that’s an awesome project.” The way he deadpans might make us think he wasn’t super stoked about it, but the fact is, it’s hard to impress Nile Rodgers. He has produced, written, and played guitar—the very Stratocaster he’s holding in the video above—on “hundreds, maybe thousands” of records, he ...

Album Review: Pet Shop Boys, “Hotspot”

One could successfully argue that the Pet Shop Boys are one of the greatest singles bands of all time. They’ve notched 22 Top 10 hits in their native UK, only one behind George Michael, a mere three behind both David Bowie and Queen, and one song ahead of the Rolling Stones. They also sent an additional 20 songs into the Top 40, 17 of which peaked in the Top 20. They are pop royalty. And it wasn’t done in some white-hot flash of creativity; their UK Top 40 streak spans 24 years and 10 albu...

Packers Edge Chiefs in Competitive Battle Sunday Night

On Sunday night, the Packers edge Chiefs in competitive battle. This was a marquee matchup featuring Aaron Rodgers versus Patrick Mahomes when the schedule came out. Unfortunately, Patrick Mahomes injured his knee and wasn’t able to play. Earlier in the day, both San Francisco and New England remained undefeated. The 49ers blew out Carolina 51-13. The Patriots beat the Browns 27-13 as Bill Belichick picked up his 300th career victory.  Drew Brees returned after missing five games due to a thum...

At least in Green Book, jazz is high art

I’m anxiously awaiting the release of Bolden, a film about the New Orleans cornettist Buddy Bolden (1888 – 1933) who may actually have invented jazz. But since Bolden will not be released until May, and since April is Jazz Appreciation Month, now is a good time to talk about the cultural capital that jazz has recently acquired, at least in that multiply honored film, Green Book. As is often the case when a film is honored lavishly, however, Green Book has run up against a backlash. If nothing el...

Inside The Trader Joe's Black Market — Where Everything Bagel Seasoning Costs $22

You may associate Trader Joe’s with Hawaiian shirts but, paradoxically, the beloved grocery chain doesn’t have any locations in Hawaii. The closest store is a few thousand miles away in California. Thus, Marli Arneson, a 25-year-old from Oahu craving Trader Joe’s ginger turmeric tea, did what many of us might: She went on Amazon and bought a box for $9.74, assuming the two retailers had a partnership. But no. It was only later that Arneson learned her sought-after tea hadn’t come directly from ...

9 Possible Destinations for LeVeon Bell

We’ve already talked about the possible destinations for Antonio Brown. We now turn our attention to LeVeon Bell, who didn’t play last season. LeVeon Bell have arguably been the top RB over the last five years. When it comes to Bell, he can beat you by running the ball or catching it out of the backfield. With the year off, will it help or hurt him in the long run? Either way, he’ll have a list of suitors who would love to have him in their backfield. With free agents being able to sign this w...

The football season is behind us as the Patriots beat the Rams to capture their 6th Super Bowl Championship. When it comes to the offseason, there’s usually plenty of action and transactions that take place. One of the biggest stories will be where will Antonio Brown will be playing next season?

Kathy Sledge on the 40th Anniversary of the Joyful Song, 'We Are Family'

None Four decades after it unfairly became a casualty of the "Disco Sucks" movement, maligned as a cheesy artifact of the era like high platform soled shoes and white polyester suits, Sister Sledge's 1979 album We Are Family remains one of the most solid soul collections ever put on wax. It arrived at a pivotal moment in the career of Debbie, Joni, Kim and Kathy Sledge, the four sisters from Philadelphia: after two albums (Circle of Love and Together) and one top 40 R&B single ("Love Don't Go ...

Ariana Grande – “7 Rings (Remix)” (Feat. 2 Chainz)

Ariana Grande's new single "7 Rings" has only been in the world for two weeks, but it's been an eventful two weeks.

Chic Were the Zenith of Disco

None One of the greatest losses I experienced as a result of sustaining injuries in 2012 was dancing. Spinal and feet damage have made it if not quite impossible then certainly much harder to graze a rug, never mind cut it. Listening to the glorious first three years of the Chic Organization's output, as presented in this box, forced me to confront that loss head-on. The best disco, and Chic were sometimes disco even though they transcended it, was highly sensual and absolutely thrilling to...

Music brings us all together – My weekend at Amsterdam Dance Event 2018

The lights are flashing above, reflections, bright flashes, and flickers. Maybe there’s a disco ball above. Speakers in the corner, hanging from above, behind, in front—the sounds are seemingly coming from everywhere around you. A slick floor; probably some broken glass. The smell of sweat and stale beer. A mass of bodies moving separately but similarly. The dance club is a magical place. • • • Sitting in a dark auditorium in Amsterdam, the night already upon us, I was quickly ushered into an...

Daddys Hangout 2018 Week 8 NFL Predictions

Welcome to Week 8 of the NFL season. This season is just flying by and it’s crazy that the Los Angeles Rams is the lone undefeated team in the league. Last week I predicted 10 games and my record was 6-4. My overall record dipped down to 36-22, which lowered my overall winning percentage goes from 62.5 to 62.1%.

Daddy’s Hangout NFL Week 1 Predictions 2018

This year, I’ll be doing my college football prediction on my other website. After an incredibly crazy offseason, we finally get back to some real action. Coming into this season, we can honestly say that the NFC is like the Western Conference in the NBA. They are stacked with about seven teams that could potentially make a Super Bowl run. Philadelphia, Atlanta, Minnesota, New Orleans, Los Angeles Rams, Green Bay and Carolina have legitimate chances. In the AFC, we all know about New England, ...
