  6. On Friday I traveled to Albuquerque, New Mexico for the Fifteenth annual Globalquerque. This diverse World Music festival has three stages and ten acts per night at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. On Friday night, I heard: Nohe y Sus Santos: A mixture of Latin Pop and Cumbias, featuring Honduran vocalist Nohelia Sosa. Not my usual fare, but a fine group. Mdou Moctar: Niger's guitarist extraordinaire presents shattering Saharan Desert blues. Natu Camara: Vocalist from Guinea is not bad. Finally for the evening, the wondrous Garifuna Collective from Belize present the music of the Garifuna people. And a new CD! On Saturday night: Sahba Motallebi: A revelatory concert for me, as the Iranian tar virtuoso presents Persian classical music with percussion accompaniment on tonbak. With music of some similarity to Indian classical music, including improvisation, she was utterly masterful. Finally, closing out with Vivalda Dula, from Angola, and the sound of East Africa. This was another welcome discovery. An amazing vocalist and performer.

  16. Always a BIG fan of George: especially "Amsterdam After Dark" and the first "Eastern Rebellion" album. As mentioned already, he was really kicking it in gear then.
  17. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Thank you, i will consider them. I once seen a list were especially one symphony stood out on. Can't find the list anymore. mwehhhh... i guess Haitink is best in slower symphonies.
  18. Rugby World Cup

    Good win for England, as expected. Very good win by Ireland. A good weekend for me
  19. Patsy Cline

    Fun fact: Willie's original title for "Crazy" was "Stupid."
  20. George Coleman

    I just remember being blown away by his incredible fast technique and circular breathing. Billy Higgins obviously liked it because he was grinning ear to ear. That group with Hilton Ruiz I recall having Herbie Lewis on bass (in dungarees) - around the time ‘Amsterdam After Dark’ was recorded. In fact, they played much of that album.
  21. Patsy Cline

    No "Crazy" because it's a collection of very early work from a different label. Patsy meets Irving Berlin.
