  1. I'm sure you will be enjoying the day with your family. But if you want to come down to Docker's, we'll help you celebrate!
  2. Happy Birthday, JoeG!

    Wow - a nine-year-old thread. That's gotta be like 35 in internet years. Or 135. Thanks for the kind thoughts. Obviously I've moved on to other things (all good), but there's still a piece of me here, and a piece of the whole organissimo experience in me. Never to be forgotten. In other news, I'm going to be moving to Chicago soon, probably within a month. Never thought I'd end up living there, but now I'm really looking forward to it! Take care, everyone, and many blessings. ~j
  3. Bach Recommendations

    The Joshua Rifkin cantatas swing a lot more than Harnoncourt's, IMO.
  4. Bach Recommendations

    I second that. Another recording that's been getting a lot of play from me lately is the Hilliard Ensemble recording of the Motets. I don't have any other versions so I can't compare. I can only tell you that I listen to this one a LOT. I also like Hilary Hahn's version of the violin concerti, but that may not be everyone's cup of tea.
  5. Very cool - Hopefully the first of many!
  6. The guitar corner

    That's happy!
  7. Dyes (in food, cosmetics, etc)

    Jim - I'm so glad to read all of this. Very cool that you were able to turn all that around just by diet alone.
  8. I had some great experiences both playing and listening there. I'd like to see that continue for others.
  9. Glad I had the chance to stop in with Kevin a few years ago. Best of luck in whatever every comes next.
  10. Cancer took my wonderful wife last week

    Peace, blessings, and condolences to you and your family, Rolf.

    Cool. I've also heard reports of the Backstage Pass show we did turning up on PBS stations across the country.

    The Lutherans are loose! Oh God, they're loose!
  14. organissimo: 2000 - 2010

    Just want to express my sincere appreciation for all the support everyone has given us over the years, whether it be in person or virtually. I've learned a lot about a lot of things hanging out here, and it's been a great pleasure meeting those of you who where able to out to the shows. Amazing that our trips to Philly and Israel were due to the efforts of members of this community. I consider that a blessing, for certain. And, of course, playing with Jim and Randy has been very gratifying, every step of the way. We really had some moments down through the years! For the next few years, I've decided to put music on the back burner while I go to school full-time to get a degree in nursing, among other endeavors (all good). I will have my guitars along, and will get back to performing at some point, no doubt. I'd like to think there will be an organissimo reunion in the future. I'm sure it will be like we never quit - 10 years of Vulcan music mind-melding will do that. I'll be busy as hell for the next few years, but, who can stay away from this place for long? I'll be checking in. Much love to all.

    Not just yes, but HELL yes.

  17. My First Recording By ______

    I completely suck at this game.
  18. My dad used to work for a dental supply company called.... Accu Bite.
  19. It's been years since I've read Campbell, but I remember that one not being my favorite. Myths to Live By and Flight of the Wild Gander(both late 60's) are interesting reads, and his magnum opus, the Historical Atlas of World Mythology (any of its volumes), is worth a look if you can find it at the library.
  20. Janiva Magness tour dates

    Polar opposites? They're both insane.
  21. Music Charts and Transcription

    No one has done any charts to my knowledge, but if you have any questions about particular passages, I'd be happy to help out. Those two tunes in particular are pretty straightforward; I think both are all dominant 7th chords from start to finish. I'm glad you're enjoying the music enough to dig into it as a player.
  22. Ernie Harwell - RIP

    Great article on what certainly appears to be a genuinely good man. Haven't listened to baseball in years, but I can easily conjure up the sound of his voice.
