Happy Birthday K.D. Lang

In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”

It’s a quote from Albert Camus and one that k.d. lang credits as the point of departure and source of inspiration for Invincible Summer, her bright and balmy new Warner Bros. Records release, and the quintessential summer soundtrack of all time.

Equal parts surf and samba, capris and cotton candy, Beach Boys and bossa nova, Invincible Summer is more than the Grammy-winning vocalist/songwriter’s evocation of everyone’s favorite season. Listening to the eleven tracks that comprise this salt-kissed and sundrenched collection is nothing less than taking a mini-musical vacation – complete with that unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime summer fling…..

David Miles RIP

Miles Davis was one of the greatest visionaries and most important figures in jazz history. He was born in a well-to-do family in East St. Louis. He became a local phenom and toured locally with Billy Eckstine’s band while he was in high school. He moved to New York under the guise of attending the Julliard School of Music. However, his real intentions were to hook up with Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. He quickly climbed up the ranks while learning from Bird and Diz and became the trumpet player for Charlie Parker’s group for nearly 3 years. His first attempt at leading a group came in 1949 and was the first of many occurrences in which he would take jazz in a new direction. Along with arranger Gil Evans, he created a nonet (9 members) that used non-traditional instruments in a jazz setting, such as French horn and Tuba. He invented a more subtle, yet still challenging style that became known as “cool jazz.” This style influenced a large group of musicians who played primarily on the west coast and further explored this style. The recordings of the nonet were packaged by Capitol records and released under the name The Birth of the Cool. The group featured Lee Konitz, Gerry Mulligan, and Max Roach, among others. This was one of the first instances in which Miles demonstrated a recurring move that angered some: he brought in musicians regardless of race. He once said he’d give a guy with green skin and “polka-dotted breath” a job, as long as they could play sax as well as Lee Konitz. After spending 4 years fighting a heroin addiction, he conquered it, inspired by the discipline of the boxer Sugar Ray Robinson. more….
