Jerry Joseph and the Jackmormons

This is a medley of “We Will Go Down”, Good Sunday”, and “Love Train” delivered live with guests. Jerry Joseph salutes both Bob Dylan and Van Morrison in his lyrics. Appropriately enough I find this live recording to be on par with “Astral Weeks” and “Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands”. The best of the best.

Here's the link to the whole concert on the Live Music Archive.

New Jazz In Jonesboro – February 9, 2019 – Recap

A fantastic set of jazz standards by The Ken Carroll Trio with guest stars Chris Isom on drums and Joseph Curtis, trumpet, featured Ken Carroll's EWI work. The EWI or Electronic Wind Instrument is a synthesizer that is played like a horn and can sound like any instrument or go off in a world of it's own. The Ken Carroll Trio included Gabe Waters on bass and Hairy Larry, piano and vocals. Closing the set guest star Whitley Newman sang “Summertime”.

Set list. 1. Black Orpheus 2. Yesterday 3. Wave 4. How High The Moon 5. Recordame 6. Autumn Leaves 7. Summertime

I met these fine jazz musicians at a workshop in the ASU bandroom today and I was very impressed with their musicianship, their compositions, and their spoken eloquence.

I am working on writing about their careers and their music at my blog, 21st Century Jazz Composers.

Here are their links.

Delta Legends on Arkansas Roots

A big shout out to Mike Doyle at KASU for playing Delta Legends on Arkansas Roots. He played “Baby What You Want Me To Do” and “Logan's Blues” recorded live on June 10, 2017, busking in front of Gearhead Cycle House on Main St. in Jonesboro.

Thanks to Mike Doyle and Arkansas Roots at KASU.

Addendum – The Arkansas Brothers are closing the show now. I recorded them at Blue Monday in Paragould.

Cosmic Voyage

My friend Tomasino is hosting a Science Fiction writing project so, of course, I joined.

It is called Cosmic Voyage and it is the annals of the human diaspora into the galaxy told in text files. Here's the background.

Humanity has expanded to the stars. Earth is a distant memory. We journey into the darkness not in a great migration--as many thought--but in small communities, drifting far and traveling at relativistic speeds, dividing from each other by unfathomable distance and time. Our only connections are the thin tethers of the Quantum Entanglement Communicator (QEC). These precarious devices bridge the vast distances with near-instantaneous communication, but provide only enough bandwidth to the ancient relay hub for simple, plain-text messaging.

My ship is the Space Beagle and my protagonist, E. Grosvenor, is a Nexialist. (hat tip to A.E. VanVogt) I am not sure exactly what lies ahead but I am sure that bug eyed monsters and other dangerous aliens will be involved.

So fun!

There are many other ships communicating with the SOL System and each other using the Quantum Entanglement Communicator. So I have a lot to learn about mankinds greatest adventure, the journey to the stars, all in plaintext.
