    Just off the crescendo of a two week depression- it's just the nature of the beast I suppose- it's hard to explain but it's sort of like when you just survived some harrowing misadventure, only nothing happened. And so as I resume writing Chapter 54, I came across the tunes out of nostalgia's closet-

    So I was rewatching this video and just noticed at 1:49-1:50 you can see where Darth Maul got his fashion sense (not a fan of the Star Wars prequels btw)-
    I also like the upbeat bass riff's melody- and the energy of the song. Also can relate to the lyrics-

    I went to a jazz festival yesterday. Five bands.

    First was the Dylan Perrillo Orchestra. Old time revivalism, played with the knowing wink of the ironic hipster, which is what ruined it for me. The whole thing felt like a schtick.

    But the rest of the festival was fantastic:

    Jeff "Siege" Siegel Sextet. This guy originally came from around these parts, but he's drummed for some of the biggest names in jazz. For this gig, he had local legend Rich Syracuse on bass, and incredible up-and-comer Dylan Canterbury burning it up on trumpet.

    The Brighton Beat. Absolutely killer Afro-beat band from NYC.

    Mike Stern. He had Dennis Chambers on drums. I wasn't familiar with the sax player or the bassist, but they both killed. Stern messed up his hands in a freak accident a couple of years ago. His picking hand looks all mangled, but he plays as well as ever, and still radiates joy in that uniquely Stern way. Great set.

    Maurice "Mobetta" Brown. A young trumpeter with a band of complete monsters, burning up some very contemporary jazz, shot through with hip-hop and perfect for the whole Glasper/Kamasi/Thundercat crowd.

    I ended up going home with both Brighton Beat CDs, plus the latest from Maurice Brown. I listened to this Brighton Beat disc already, and it kicks booty:



    Here's the other Brighton disc:



    And the Maurice Brown disc:

    The problem with Manring is that he manages to pull off all this stuff live as well:

    I recently obtained a DVD of Jeff Beck live at Ronnie Scott's and it had some nice performances by Imogen Heap and Tal Wilkenfeld. I had never heard of Imogen Heap before, but I really like her voice and singing style. I was surprised at how many albums she has put out. I guess the American music scene just doesn't produce much of interest to me any more. Sigh........ Anyway, Tal Wilkenfeld does a nice solo. However, I think I am more impressed by her looks than her playing. Does that make me a sexist pig? If so, I can live with that, because she is definitely a hottie!



    Ms. Wilkenfelds solo starts at about 1:25

    Sexism is defined as prejudice or discrimination according to sex. Did you say something that is prejudiced? Did you discriminate her? No. No sexism here. There's nothing wrong with respectfully acknowledging a lady's attractiveness, is there?

    Nope, nothing wrong with it at all. In fact I’ve never known a woman to be offended by a respectful appraisal- well there was one exception- my onetime fiancé who said “Tell me something I don’t already know!”

    It is, at minimum, a tad problematic. On the one hand, humans are sexual beings, and it's only natural for us to notice those we find attractive. But the constant obsession over female looks on musician forums speaks of something else. It's like "sure, she's a good musician and everything, but the important thing is how attractive she is to men". Can't we just appreciate her for the badass bassist she is and move on?

    Personally, I think the male obsession with female looks has benefited Ms. Wilkenfeld. I don't think she would be getting near as much attention were it not for her pleasing aesthetics. In my honest opinion, there are quite a few better bassists that receive much less positive attention. I do not mean to detract from her abilities at all, she can definitely play, and in the music industry, which is all about entertainment, it is not unexpected. So, good for her and I hope she goes very far in her career.

    To be honest, I haven't had much experience with other music forums. I 'd say ours is pretty cool in that respect.

    I think it's a delicate issue. I 've been doing a lot of thinking about this today, some stuff I thought are obvious, some other not so much. I 'd like to summarize my thoughts as: I don't think men should apologize for being men, as long as they respect women. This rationale should explain the content of my first reply to kimgee.
