Youtubin': Oneohtrix Point Never @ Café du Nord, SF, CA, 2010

Synth envy, sampler envy...

Info on this festival, long past, is here - not surprised root strata had something to do with it...

Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette - Standards, Vol. 1 (ECM, 1983)

Saw these guys over at UCLA tonight. The kind of captivating performance you'd expect from three of the best at what they do - the first two songs were subdued, then Keith started in with one of those funky stride melodies, a little Afro-Cuban rhythm... some magical playing, and plenty of wry, I'm-not-really-trying-to-entertain-you-with-my banter from the man at the keys. When someone's crickets ringtone went off during a ballad, I thought he was going to give us a good tongue-lashing...

Here's the album that started off the Standards group 30 years ago. Seems appropriate... enjoy it, weird Keith whines and all! Yeah, there was a lot of that tonight, and a lot of butt wigglin'...

(They played this tonight for one of the encores, it made the lady in front of me really happy...)

Youtubin': Ray Lynch - "The Oh of Pleasure" (w/ Laser Show!)

This is deep at dinner time too... this was the least annoying video counterpart to this song on youtube, I promise.
