    I think it's 1993. Still sounds good.

    Love Bromberg. I have most of his albums and have seen him live many times (small band and big band). I'm seeing him in a few weeks performing solo. Can't wait.

    The Blues, The Whole Blues and Nothing But The Blues by David Bromberg

    Saw David the other night at Hugh's Room in Toronto. Nothing beats live music, but in its absence we've got some pretty fine albums.

    He was playing in quintet form at Hugh's, a cracking band. Particularly notable were guitarist Mark Cosgrove and fiddler Nate Grower. David has said he doesn't play the way he used to (when he was a go-to sideman, played with Dylan, the Dead and many others, co-wrote with George Harrison, etc etc), before he had a two decade hiatus from performing, but plays now with more nuance, less speed, more time to think. Excellent player on acoustic and electric slide. Cosgrove provides some of the speed chops, phenomenal, and Grower, normally a bluegrass kind of guy, plays the fiddle like it was an electric guitar. Both electifying. David sings well, has kind of come into his own like many older blues guys, except he sings with a Jewish Philly accent and cadence, instead of the south or Chicago.

    Thought the photos were interesting. The old b/w was taken by Robert Altman back in 1974, and the newer one is from this year at a festival (Bettye Lavette was on his arm, but I cropped her out to take the size down).

    Had to delete original post, something was awry in the way it was displayed, this is a repost.

    I am listening to Culture - Two Sevens Clash on a Raspberry Pi; The Raptors Death Becomes Her/Teen Witch on a Squeezebox Touch; and The Fall Peel Sessions on another Raspberry Pi as I check the configuration of a repaired DacMagic and my LMS running on a third Raspberry Pi!

    Steve Dawson's "Music Makers and Soul Shakers" podcast, Amos Garrett edition.

    For music nerds only . . .

    Steve Dawson is a great guitarist and producer, in the roots/folk/Americana/blues vein. His own sound is kind of "dirty", he plays hard and likes fuzz. He's a talented producer who works successfully within a variety of artist styles. Canadian from the west coast, lives and works in Nashville, has lots of quality musical connections and a great deal of musical curiosity.

    He is, therefore, the perfect person to assemble a cast of musicians to talk about their musical journeys.

    His podcast, some 50+ episodes long so far, engages musicians, producers, engineers and others in discussions about their craft and their history. He kicked off with Bill Frisell, usually seen as a jazz guitarist but active in many genres, and travels through an immense catalog of great artists. I was a late-comer, downloaded the full set of podcasts, and am listening more or less randomly and continuously to the shows. Season 3 is in production. I'll subscribe to it.

    These are long-form interviews, usually an hour to ninety minutes long, and NEVER long enough. On some occasions a particularly long conversation is split into two separate podcasts. All of the interviews include illustrative musical cuts, not full tracks but excerpts to illustrate what is being talked about. On some occasions, when the interviewee is in the studio with Steve, there'll be an impromptu jam at the end.

    These are available for free from iTunes, or from his own website at the address below. You can subscribe through iTunes. There is some cost involved, so he's set up a Patreon donation mechanism. Believe me, if you are into this kind of music at all you'll want to throw in a few bucks to keep it running.

    It should be noted that the early sessions were not so perfect from a technical point of view; for instance, the great Frisell interview has Steve sounding like he's talking a great deal further from the mic than is Frisell. But these problems are soon solved.

    Get them from http://www.stevedawson.ca/makersandshakerspodcast/

    Midori Takada - Through The Looking Glass
    A sort of minimalist/ambient record dating from 1983 - I've only played this a few times so far, but it's rather pleasing. Apparently it never had a CD release, and this vinyl release doesn't seem to be accompanied by a digital release either. The 33rpm version I have is a lovely pressing (there's a 2 x 45rom version, too, but it's rather more expensive). Can be heard on YouTube and Soundcloud.
