1. Rico Rodriguez - Ska and Reggae's Trombone Legend
Jamaican trombonist Rico's musical career spans five decades. From the earliest days of indiginous Jamaican music - mento, bluebeat, ska and rock steady right up to present-day big band ska Rico is a Jamaican living legend.
Here's my tribute to a musical hero.
From crucial horn breaks on the ea...
2. The Velvet Voice - Appreciating Richard Hawley's 'Cole's Corner'
Music - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:33:16
My grandma Lily loved those velvet voices.
Visits to gran's house were so often soundtracked by her favorite crooners from the late 50s. Nat King Cole, Harry Belafonte, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra were the cornerstones of her musical appreciation and of course this rubbed off on my mother who ...
3. Iggy's Lust for Life
Music - Sat, 13 Sep 2014 20:21:18
I fell for Iggy Pop not because of his music, but because of a photograph.
Let me explain.
As a kid I loved the glam rock stylings of David Bowie and specifically a larger than life...
4. Lou Reed - A true transformer
Music - Sat, 13 Sep 2014 20:21:16
I learned, just now, that Lou died today.
I never met him or even saw him perform. But in so many small ways he made my life bigger and brighter and sharper and more inspirational.
I was just eleven years old and living in a small Yorkshire village miles from Lou's great New York City. He opene...
5. Just Fearless - The amazing Taylor Swift
Music - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:34:43
I first saw Taylor Swift on some You Tube video a buddy sent me.
"You gotta see this young chick..."
Long before the fame and the glory and the VMA glamour turned her into the big superstar we know there was this honest-to-goodness teen talent. One look at this fair young swan and you know she ...
6. Live On Air - The Beatles at the Beeb.
Music - Sat, 13 Sep 2014 20:24:53
As a child in England in the early sixties my upbringing had a soundtrack. At first it was the radio, which was always on. The transistor radio on the kitchen table was permanently tuned to 247 medium wave and the BBC's Light Programme. Two-way Family Favourites. Housewife's Choice. Brian Matthew...
7. If I had a favourite band, I guess I'd choose Wilco.
Music - Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:30:16
Picking out a favourite band or musician out of the many thousands I've seen, or listened to seems impossible.
But when travelling - the one time I can really relax into the sounds and the moods and the tones - then there's just one choice. Wilco.
Wilco were formed in Chicago, Illinois, from th...
8. Iggy's Lust for Life - My favourite album
Music - Sat, 13 Sep 2014 20:15:17
Iggy Pop - Lust For Life
Lust for Life, without question is the album that touches me the deepest. It's by one of rock music's most raw and outrageous singers and performers, Iggy Pop.
As a kid I was a huge fan of David Bowie, and it was an article by him in an old music magazine (Music Scene) ...
9. The Cramps - Poison Ivy's rockin' sound...
Music - Sat, 13 Sep 2014 20:20:21
The first I heard of The Cramps was on late night radio.
The DJ on some fading pirate station was playing a massive reverb filled swamp punk number called Under The Wire, a paean to dirty phone calls. It was simultaneously subversive and hilarious.
The sound was deeply familiar but disturbing a...
