This Sunday Music Muse Day turns out to be a perfect autumn, and the first day of Daylight Savings Time.
I celebrated by starting my day at the Southwedge Record Fair, where always manage to good selection or two.
Plus, I get to run into Derek Lucas of music director of Jazz90.1 our listener/member supported jazz station. It just finished another successful fund drive. I renewed my membership Saturday, last week, during the Tom Pethic, Artistry in Jazz show.
Back to the music, as I run errands, I played one of the CDs purchased the Record Fair, guitarist John Scofield This Meets That. I just featured Scofield's last CD, Combo 88, in my last Sunday Muse Day post, but you can never get enough of Sco's music. This Meets That is a solid, fun, outing, with a wicked version of the blues standard, House of the Rising House, it was reminding me of the Americana styling of Bill Frisell. Later, when checked the liner notes, I discovered Bill Frisell played tremolo guitar on the that track. Scofild employs a group of horn players to compliment his trio (himself on guitar, Steve Swallow on bass, and Bill Steward on drums) in this 2007 release. Giving the music will party favor. It well worth seeking out.
