Success stories - V.A. Wait Times Now Shorter Than for Private Doctors

From New York Times on 01/22/19 Wait times for an appointment at Veterans Affairs hospitals have decreased since 2014 and are now, on average, shorter than those in the private sector, a new study shows. Researchers used V.A. data to calculate wait times for about 17 million appointments. The public sector data came from a survey conducted by a physicians’ search firm in nearly 2,000 medical offices in 30 major and midsize metropolitan areas. The study, in JAMA Network Open, covered f...

The History of the Guitar & Guitar Legends: From 1929 to 1979

In the age of the Classical Education, students pored over and memorized the works of “authorities,” exemplars of grammar, rhetoric, logic, etc. Constellations in the night sky of ignorance, so to speak, these writers and thinkers showed the way to knowledge through their excellence. The method may have fallen out of favor in modern pedagogy, but it survives in popular culture, and in the videos here, producer and musician Rick Beato employs it as a way of teaching the history of guitar....

Eight Clips: The Blues Guitar

By the early 1970s, the electric blues guitar reached its peak in mass popularity. With roots in the post-World War II Chicago style marked by amplification and picking solos, the electric blues was pioneered by African-American guitarists including T. Bone Walker, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Freddy King, Albert King, Chuck Berry, Magic Sam, Buddy Guy and many others. White American and British guitarists also introduced many young listeners to the electric blues in the late '60s ...

Manchester, England: Lowry-loving. Bomb-rocked. Unbroken.

Flag waving Lowry-loving Boundry shoving Cottonmilled... Bomb-rocked Unbroken... --from Carole Houlston's 2004 poem "Manchester" Manchester, Britain's Second City, is feistier and rawer than London. Imagine another second city, Chicago, only smaller (in population, Manchester's center city is roughly 510,000, and its urban area is 2.6 million). But also a bit tougher. Proud blue collar towns like Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Baltimore also come to mind. No nonsense and shamelessly tough and ...

Twenty five Great Jazz Flute Performances

I recently reviewed an album from the flautist Sam Most recorded in 1978 titled From the Attic of My Mind. He was a fabulous player and an influential creative innovator on his instrument. Unfortunately flute is not often seen as a major jazz instrument, but often relegated to an occasional sidekick to the saxophone. It got me to thinking about some of the other great jazz flute performances that I have heard over the years and so I decided it might be fun to make a list and share them, perhap...

Happy 2015 RIP Birthday to Texas Electric Blues Guitar Wizard Johnny Winter

Yesterday I was focused on my plants, and forgot to post the birthday celebration for one of the greatest guitar slingers Texas has ever produced, the legendary Johnny Winter! Today we have some of the best slide guitar ever recorded! Johnny Winter was one of the original blistering Texas bluesmen. Amazingly high energy, he's ranked as one of the top 100 guitarists of all time, and won 3 Grammys for producing albums for Muddy Waters.

The Kate welcomes James Cotton

On my 20th birthday, my Sainted Mother gave me fourth row tickets to see Johnny Winter at Memorial Auditorium in Dallas. It was the excellent "John Dawson Winter III" tour, and I was also mightily impressed with the opening act, blues harpist/vocalist/songwriter James Cotton - a dude who'd actually played with Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf! All these years later, Cotton remains a stellar purist.
