I happened upon an early recording of Iris Dement's "Our Town" from the early 1990's, a song that played a large part in classic TV series Northern Exposure's swan song. That memorable last TV show signing off this beautiful classic really stuck with me.

For the few years that the Turnage Theater did operate as an ongoing concern, they did book at least one Christmas show each year. In 2009, they booked, and I did attend "Christmas the Cowboy Way, featuring the Riders in the Sky.

When I orignially posted the article on the passing of Fats Domino, I had hopes that it would generate some comments from Alex J. Ortolano who was raised in New Orleans. I doubt that anyone not born and raised in New Orleans could capture the musical magic that was that city.

I can't remember far enough back when Fats Domino's music was not part of my musical landscape. Granted I was only 10 years old when Fats released his first album in 1955.

On this day in 1969 I sat at my parent's house watching television. The country was in the midst of a tumultuous war, there was unrest in the street, and racial tensions were high.

Canadian Balladeer Gordon Lightfoot was never a fixture among my favorites, as I consumed volumes of the uniquely eclectic music from the most enlightened periods of any within the realm of the classical creation of music; however, Balladeer Lightfoot did create one song that has stuck with me.

Even though we Georgians claim the Allman Brothers as our own, they actually did not settle in Georgia until after they were well on their way to stardom. Of course no good story stand on its own, they must be embellished with a bit of folklore.

Following my usual practice when I write an article about a musician passing, I usually do a bit more research on the musician. That usually includes a review of articles from Rolling Stone and other music-oriented sites. By far the best way to get a flavor of the impact of a musician is to watch s

The J. Geils band was formed in 1967. They hung around until 1985 when they broke up like all good rock bands are want to do. The result was a series of lawsuits and bad feelings. Like any bad marriage the breakup was based on a shaky ground of "Creative Differences."

Leo Kottke has been a personal favorite of mine for decades. The baby-faced acoustic guitar picker, who managed to create his own robust expressive style, has grown older as I have, but, he is still the master, maybe better.

After a long and eventful life, the spark plug of Rock and Roll has passed at 90 years old. Perhaps his greatest contribution was his cross over to Rock and Roll. While most of the south was still in the throes of segregation, Chuck stole the musical heart of a whole generation of white kids.

Occasionally you hear about the passing of a musician you never heard of. One of the most remarkable things about the music business is that some of the most talented people are never front stage. Many are either session layers or band members who just provide the foundation for the star to shine.

It has been said that you need to have lived the blues to sing the blues. I am not sure I agree with that but when it comes to Jazz, I do think you have to live it to play and sing it. Al Jarreau did just that.
