OMG!! How long must I suffer? It is bad enough being ill by itself, but listening to this music does not make it any better. It really does sound like the inside of my mind when I go to another world. The thirteen album Kenya is a blend of Afro-Cuban beats and jazz from Machito […]

1001 ALBUMS #12

Oh nooooooooo! Another jazz album. I should have listened to them out of order. I cannot handle anymore jazz. Miles Davis is no exception in the jazz chaos. I especially think it is weird when you think of yourself as the Birth of the Cool.  For the most part critics were the only ones who […]

I have said it before and I will say it again. I do not like Spanish music. At least I have never heard one song that made me think I should buy the cd or download it from iTunes. Sabu’s Palo Congo is no exception. In fact, I hate it even more because it mixes jazz […]

Was there some sort of jazz explosion in the late 50s? I am not sure I can handle much more of the chaos. I am struggling with my own head at the moment without all the chaos of another jazz artist. But I started this and I am that person that will usually finish what […]

Bohemian Rhapsody

I can official start my hunt for the best film of the year. I can tell you now from the beginning that I watch films to escape and to feel something other than the crappy way I feel every day. If Bohemian Rhapsody is not nominated for the Oscar for 2018, then I will never watch […]

I grew up around jazz music. I love hearing jazz in films, on street corners (not in the prostitute sense of street corner, but just the regular guy walking down the Bourbon Street corner) and in nightclubs. Sitting down on a chair and playing jazz on Spotify is not something I find exciting, especially if […]

The “Chirping” Crickets by The Crickets is not something I had ever heard of, at least I thought so until I heard the first song “Oh Boy!” The reason many of us would not know this band is because its lead singer, writer and talent had died in a plane crash. The plane crash was […]

Oh no, Frank Sinatra has another album in the 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die list that I am working my way through. Wasn’t one depressing album enough? Songs For Swingin’ Lovers! has a title à double sens. I will let you figure that one out. It is definitely different than I expected, […]

Jazz music is not something I would normally buy, but if you are looking for something to listen to while you clean the house and you want it to sound like chaos, then Duke Ellington’s Ellington At Newport 1956 is the album for you. It is only music and some interludes of Ellington speaking to […]

Fats Domino (Yes, he called himself Fats, but today he could not get away with that name. It would hurt the feelings of all the fat people) is someone I have heard of and someone I have heard a few songs from, but I would not consider myself a fan at all. I appreciate what […]
