Patti Smith brings passion and poetry to the LA Phil’s Power To The People! festival

Patti Smith walked on stage alone at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, and before she sang or spoke a word the audience rose to cheer and clap for the first many standing ovations on Friday. This is the power of Patti Smith, poet, punk, priestess, performer, and the fans who packed the orchestra’s concert hall were more than ready to be inspired by the moving night of music she’d specially planned for the themes of the LA Phil’s Power To The People! festival. Smith’s lyrics, more than alm...

When Miles Davis Discovered and Then Channeled the Musical Spirit of Jimi Hendrix

After the release of Bitches Brew in 1970, Columbia Records pushed Miles Davis to play a series of dates at the Fillmore West and East supporting major rock bands like Neil Young and Crazy Horse, the Grateful Dead, and the Steve Miller Band. Miles “went nuts,” Columbia’s Clive Davis later remembered. “He told me he had no interest in playing for ‘those fucking long-haired kids.’” The reaction does not reflect Miles’ attitude toward all the music enjoyed by long-haired kids, especially—it...

Punk's Spanish Love Songs Urge 'Brave Faces Everyone'

Those same followers may be a little surprised to see then a song entitled "Optimism" on the album.

To thrive, the band understand that they need to paint with more colors than just black and grey.That's not to say that Spanish Love Songs don't know how to use those colors well. "Losers 2" is the comedown after the hedonism of "Losers" as the band identifies with...

Music Notes: Do You Have a Favorite Musician? (OT)

I suppose a lot of people don't. It's a middlebrow conceit to say "I like everything!" in a chipper voice, which to real music aficionados means that music isn't very important to that person. Nobody who loves music likes everything. Their likes are strong, and their dislikes are strong too—they have what we call opinions. The only way everything can be equivalent is if one doesn't have much discrimination, which is another way to say taste. I have a friend who has devoted a lot of his life to h...
