I’ll Show You Mine Episode 3 – Tracy Bonham

On this day, “The 2nd Annual Storm of the Century” I thought it would be a good day to post Episode 3 of my I’ll Show You Mine series. This time my friend and fellow Berklee College of Music alumnus was gracious enough to sit with me and discuss her violin.  Which she thinks could be a Josef Klotz , and reminds me that it’s not so important as where the instrument came from as it is what you do with it.

What did not make it in to this video was Tracy’s story on how she was about to leave for rehearsals to play at Paul McCartney’s 70th birthday celebration and why RAM is one of his best albums.  What other rock & roll violinist are making noise now that she fond of. And why she won’t shop at a classical violin store.  I will post those later.

Thanks TB!

I’ll Show You Mine Show – Episode Two -Gordon Chambers

YouTube Preview Image

I’ve recently started a webseries interviewing friends and colleagues I’ve known and worked with over the years. This episode features Gordon Chambers esteemed Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter. Gordon Chambers was kind enough to sit with me in his parlor in Brooklyn and show me the piano that supports his creativity. Gordon also told stories of working with icons like Whitney Houston and Patti Labelle and what you can expect from a Gordon Chambers performance.

I first met and worked with Gordon when I was engineering for money at Chung King House Of Metal in the mid 90′s. Neither of us recall exactly which projects we worked on together.

Today is Gordon’s BIrthday Day so be sure and leave a birthday message in the comments section and try and get to the Blue Note Jazz Club this Saturday Night for GORDON CHAMBERS ANNUAL BIRTHDAY MASTERJAM
He may even play a song he talks about in this video!

Please visit http://gordonchambers.com/ to find out where he will be next.

I’m going to post a playlist of some of Gordon Hits in the comments section soon.

Do You Remember Rock & Roll?

If not, let the Alabama Shakes remind you. They’re selling out shows across the country and their debut album isn’t even out for another couple months. I managed to see these blues-infused soul grabbers play a jam packed show at the Indy in San Francisco last night. Best overpriced scalped ticket I ever bought!

Don’t believe the hype? Are you in Lefsetz’s corner? All due respect to differing musical tastes, but you’d have to be made of stone to hear a song like “Be Mine” and think that this is a band that’s “not ready.” They sound like they were born ready.

Go see the Alabama Shakes, if you can. Pick up their album Boys & Girls when it drops the second week of April. And peep my photos from last night’s show:

      Oh, hey there, East Coast! Looks like you had a bit of an earthquake, huh? Don’t worry, I’m not gonna razz you about it. You’re ill-equipped for the tremors. A big quake would be way more catastrophic there than it would be here. You’re right to be a little jumpy about it. Well, I’m no [...]

      Did You Hear That: Adele “21″ a brief review

      From the first beat of “Rolling in the Deep,” the first track on Adele’s new album, “21”, it is clear that even at such a young age (all of 22 now), singer/songwriter Adele continues to be a force stronger than she may know. As “21” dips into the style of the country South with a [...]

      So Sayeth Pam: The Raveonettes “Forget That You’re Young”

      I like a young American band that makes vintage-sounding reverbalicious melodies. Specifically if those bands are Crystal Stilts, Vivian Girls or Dum Dum Girls. Call me a nationalist but I just happen to prefer their take on fuzz pop to that of their Danish predecessors, the Raveonettes. Which is not to say I dislike the [...]
