The age of musical reason

From what I understand, there is a good deal of research that reveals that most people’s musical tastes are formed in their early teens (here is an article citing such).

When I was 14, I was really in to stuff like Skynyrd, Ted Nugent, Queen, Thin Lizzy, Pink Floyd…stuff I can’t bear to listen to for more than a couple of minutes these days.

When I do sit down and listen, I’m most likely to seek out something I haven’t heard before even if it’s not new music.

So anyway…I’ll be posting some new music myself soon and hopefully, pick up the pace on the recording process.

Chico, Strings Attached

I’ve found myself going back to listen to various versions of Chico Hamilton’s bands quite a bit.

Always something interesting compositionally and/or aesthetically.

And, Chico always featured interesting sidemen. This gorgeous album is one of the earliest records with Eric Dolphy and, the seemingly forgotten Dennis Budimir.
