Serious clouds around the barn this afternoon. The summer seems to
be a write-off. We had half an inch of rain in a single shower this
morning. Still, so much great, great music for you - all in just
one rather longer show.
Daisies - Sick of Sarah
Sick of Sarah began in Minneapolis, MN in April 2005 as an
all-female band with catchy hooks, unique lyrics, and thoughtful,
well-crafted music. The band displays talent, passion, and an
ever-present sense of humor that shapes many of their songs.
New listener? You are very welcome indeed. The show is about giving
your ears a taste of something a bit different. Most of which will
be entirely new to you. It is also about challenging a few of the
preconceptions that we all carry around with us.
Visions - Jack Jezzro
DIVERSITY best describes the artistry of guitarist, bassist, and
producer Jack Jezzro. His numerous recordings and productions have
sold well into the millions, all while continuing to be a highly
regarded studio musician and performer with an extensive resume.
However, even more than that, Jezzro has a style and taste that are
all his own—qualities that are a breath of fresh air to the music
of today and qualities that breathe new life into the music of
His remarkable skill at simultaneously fingering melody and chord
changes came naturally to him as a young listener. "I had a stack
of Chet Atkins records, and that's how I learned to play," Jezzro
reports. "As a kid, I"d want to play all the parts. I'd listen to a
tune by James Taylor, The Doobie Brothers, Simon & Garfunkel,
or whomever. I"d play the bass part, the piano, the vocal—and I'd
want to do it all right there on the guitar."
Delighted to welcome Codger
to the land of the living after what sounds like a really
refreshing cruise. Good to have you back on good form. Recordings
with wind noise is nothing new is it?
