David Crosby, Steven Stills, Graham Nash ... and CSN

From the first time I heard "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes," I fell in love with the sweet harmonies and rich, warming music made by Crosby, Stills and Nash.  Since that time, they celebrated the Summer of…Continue

Thanks, Kelly. While watching football games yesterday, it occured to me all the fans jump up and down, wave arms, pump fists, shout out, etc. They get excited just as I do listening to swinging music! Young fans at rock concerts do the same. So why can't I, right?

I went to a concert last night by the Indianapolis Jazz Orchestra (not "band", but no strings). Small group of 3 saxes, one trumpet, one trombone, and a rhythm section. A male and female singer also performed. Most of their songs were from Hoosier born composers--Hoagy Carmichael and Cole Porter.

The program was top notch. I really get into swinging jazz, tapping my foot, bobbinb my head, etc. So I mostly stood in the wayback to "dance" without being seen. Afterall, I was the ONLY person there that showed any display of emotion. Everybody else just sat there expressionless. Sad.

Also, yesterday, I received and listened to a new CD by "Hot Rize", a bluegrass group I saw on PBS recently. Yeah, I'm eclectic.

Chris G. The playlist of banjo and thumb guitar has such powerful sounds and rhythms, I can't even imagine growing up on such a rich musical and rhythmic culture.

It would be nice if Jason Kreutzman had a crew there for a documentary.  After the earnest money put up in the ticket lottery I’m sure Chicago investors jumped at the chance to get in on it with some video equipment in Soldier Field.  I don't know exactly how much was put up but if I were to write it I'd have to use eight spaces.  

The way it worked, you had to commit the maximum ticket price for a given show, times the number of tickets you wanted to buy.  I could only afford to tie up four hundred bucks so I only put in for two tickets at the Sunday show.  Millions of people worldwide wanted tickets.  The scalper big-money was in there too, and I didn't get the happy email, but I did buy scalper tickets.  OK, I had hoped for something where we could see the stage, but for forty-five bucks each, at least we're in the building. 

I am quite pleased to see the ridiculous prices go down as the date approaches though.   Scalper prices for good seats at the Chicago shows started in the low six figures and nose-bleeders behind the stage started at six hundred bucks a pop; low six figures? I hope they all lose their shirts!

The tradition of deadheads has always been, buy extra tickets when you can afford it, give 'em away outside the venue.  I just went and checked a few sites.  Three days out they're still fat with tickets.  They can lower prices all they want and they'll still be trying to unload them for whatever they can get on the last day for shipping.   My hat is off to all the deadheads who waited it out and got better seats that I did. 


After all the hype, it's still a Dead Show, and deadhead and dead beat are often financially synonymous!

Chris G. That is a lovely scene of Starlings murmuration. How do they fly so closely together and change patterns in flight? I wonder if they have a leader? or if it is just paying attention to what everyone else is doing. 

How Do Starling Flocks Create Those Mesmerizing Murmurations?

I'd like to see that show and am glad to hear the concert is being produced.  Hoepfully it will be available on video.

Our tickets just arrived via FedEx!

Levi's Stadium, June 28, The Dead's last bay area performance ever.  The site of the show is less than twenty miles from where they all met over fifty years ago.  Bill Kreutzman and Micky Hart are on drums with Bob Weir and Phil Lesh on guitars.  Trey Anistasio and Bruce Hornsby are playing with them too, so it should be a memorable show all the way around.  

It's all been over since Jerry Garcia died but I guess this show will be what they call closure.  For almost thirty years, I caught several shows a year.  Once again in my life, the three words most difficult to accept, "It's all over!

Music can express itself in many ways.

Starlings flying is beautiful.

Thanks, Chris. I'm not familiar with it, so I'll tune in when I have time (not today).
