Another belated Sunday Music Muse Day post, as these pandemic days are making me lose track of time. Again, I dipping into my vinyl collection. John Scofield has new CD coming out soon, so I thought I'd revisit one of his early albums, the John Scofield Quartet Rough House (1979). His playing definitely has a rough edge to it, but the Scofield sound and style is in full force.
My second choice is Steve Tibbetts Safe Journey (ECM - 1984), which is one of my favorite albums. It's hard to describe as it moves from spacey guitar rock to meditative trance music with a world music mix of kalimba, tabla, steel drum, and congas. Well worth checking out.
As we celebrate Memorial Day. I try to be mindful of the true meaning of Memorial Day, a time to remember and reflect on the fallen who give their lives so we can enjoy the freedoms and rights they believed in.
We can best honor them by making the world a better place for everyone, and lessen the need for more cemeteries.
Stay safe, stay calm, and stay heathy.
