The Road to Red
:: Posted by DanAnderson on February 15, 2014
Just picked up my copy of The Road to Red. Guys!!! How in the hell do you go from a rambunctious Easy Money to a very relaxing and aesthetic Improv II? Stunning is all I can say.

WNYCís David Garland has posted a fascinating blog article and audio podcast, The Worldís Most-Used Musical Sequence! , which explores many iterations of the descending i-bVII-bVI-V sequence.
Epitaph appears quite early in the program, just after Tennessee Ernie Fordís "16 Tons".

Is there anybody who had a direct involment in the recording of "Islands" that can confirm that the engineerer Andy Hendriksen is the same person that later worked on albums with Roxy Music, PFM, Pete Sinfield, Banco, ELP and Vangelis among others?
There is a discussion on Facebook were some people insists that Andy Hendriksen being a Swedish guy called Anders Henriksson who produced the first Quatermass album on Harvest 1970 and also a group called Ginhouse.
I have the information that Andy Hendriksen, together with his brother Ray, worked at Command Studios at the time of recording and that both of them are English.
Can anyone please clarify the situation?

"In little more than a century average height increased by 11 cm" (http://oep.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2013/08/29/oep.gpt030) Not only in height, I guess, when I think of all the well burger-fed Americans...
So how does a bigger human body respond and resonate to music? Which pitch does him and her swing? And what does this mean to the size of instruments? Is it really my bad skills on the fretboard, or do I just need a bigger guitar?

Talking about Dream Theater, I bet many guestbook participants do not know that DT posted on Christmas day on their web page a free live CD as download. The official torrent is still active.

Many thanks to Sid for setting up yesterdayís first ever (and hopefully not last ever) King Crimson Record Club get-together on Twitter, during which the participants simultaneously listened to In the Court of the Crimson King and offered their talented tweets about the tunes. Canít wait for the next #KCRC extravaganza!

Last night I saw Dream Theater in Manchester UK....simply stunning.
This is what I imagined live Prog to be in 1974....It wasnít.....but It is now!
Intonation and Phrasing
:: Posted by emory0 on February 13, 2014
Some years back my father (a trombone player) was playing in Anzi Mathewsí big band, and he was sitting next to a New York latin trumpet player. On the first day of rehearsals the latin dude pulled a machete out of his case and, showing it to my father, said: YOU phrase with ME...
"Yessir," said my father.
The subtext here, as I understood it, was that because the trombone has a slide, itís very easy to adjust intonation to surrounding instruments, and not possible (after a song starts) for a valved trumpet to do so. Plus, the trombone can play LOUD, so itís easy for a trombone to make a trumpet sound like itís being played out of tune, and the Latin dude was having none of that.

A saxophonist from Philadelphia (I forget his name) had a long standing argument with Pat Martino, a guitarist of some renown (also from Philadelphia) about a third musician (also from Philadelphia). That third fellow and fellow exponent of Brotherly Love was a saxophonist named John Coltrane.
The saxophonist declared, "Pat, címon, everyone knows Trane played sharp". Martino stood his ground. Absolutely NOT! He was not sharp!
Normally, I would side always with any saxophonist against nearly each and every tab ítard. Why?
What do you call two guitarists playing in unison? Counterpoint.
