Re: “Thoughts About Mardi Gras

Having gone to school in New Orleans, I am more than familiar with what a GREAT Mardi Gras parade not only looks like, but more importantly, feels and sounds like. Even though we have celebrated, and attended the VT parade every year, because of the kids, it is not something that I look forward to. But! I know what this parade needs to give it a real heart beat (Oooh yeah, pun intended!), one which will have people yearning to come back, year after year. Are?! You?! Reaaady?! Boom da boom, da boom boom! It's the Music! When I think Mardi Gras parade...the first thing that happens is... I hear, and feel, the high school marching bands jammin' it out in front of the procession and the floats. It gets everyone into the spirit, young and old. Plus, here, in the bitter cold, moving to music would keep your skin from falling off. Bonus! & the high school band members would finally be able to score with the ladies as their kewl meter would skyrocket! Win win!

Re: “Soundbites: Concrete Revels

Thank you for the kind words and great photo of my brother Mike. We were happily surprised and touched by the number of people who called him a friend and who looked us in the eye and told us how much he meant to them. Mike did have great musical tastes, and I wish I had more time to discuss it with him. Thanks again. - Tom.

Re: “Nothing But Static: Longtime Album Station Goes Silent

WEXP ("Experience 105.1") was actually on during the '90s, not the '80s. The station signed on in Spring '94 and came off the air in Summer '95.

Re: “Soundbites: 2017 Predictions; A Fond Farewell

Dan Bolles, are you trash talking librarians?! When was the last time you attended a library event or for that matter were shushed by a librarian? FFL has held concerts for years, including punk (thank you Big Heavy World). Librarians are bad ass, we just don't make a lot of noise about it until we have to.

Great list! I love obscure Christmas music. Here's a playlist of some lesser-known Christmas songs:

Re: “Jazz Guitarist Mike Martello Is Still Swingin' at 89

Mr. Martello and my father Sam Armstrong have been playing together for many years. They recently just play together during the jazz fest at the Vermont Pub and Brewery.

What a beautiful article you wrote about my Uncle Mike. He is a music legend and playing makes him happy. We, his family are so very proud of him. He is very much loved.

Re: “Famed Songbook "Rise Up Singing" Gets a Sequel, "Rise Again"

It's really lovely that they put this sequel out. So many of my friends over time (and I) have been hoping for one. It will become as well-used, and well-loved as the first version by so many.

I feel that Blood and Patterson blew one thing: the hand-drawn titles and lyrics gave Rise Up Singing and extra-special warm feel. If they ever read this comment, I'd humbly like to ask them to consider that for their third volume.

If you're going to get this songbook, please buy not from Amazon, but from either their site or an independent bookshop where you live -- (in either size).

Re: “The Indomitable Rise of Kat Wright

Don't know. Producers, and record labels alike, still hate the idea of a band in 2016. Bands were trouble. Sole individuals like Grace or Kat are easier to deal with, and as long as you don't let that band make their presence known too strongly, everything will work out just fine. The truly great producers of the past knew how to take all of the immense talent and let it run without running amok or runing over each other, but still produce works that were beautiful in total. If Led Zeppelin came together in 2017 as a bunch of brand-new kids some producer would be saying "yeah Robert you sing, and you other guys, just don't play so damn loud back there, ok?" Just IMHO. Love!
