Never feel alone -- you're really not alone.
"He had a theory that musicians are incredibly complex, and know far less than other artists what they want and what they are; that they puzzle themselves as well as their friends; that their psychology is a modern development, and has not yet been understood." – E. M. Forster

Music to keep me sane and healthy II

On Sunday (I missed it Saturday), Anne Litt had a great show on Weekend Becomes Eclectic. Here’s an example of the artists she played…this is from an actual set, in order:

  • Miles Davis
  • Nat "King" Cole
  • Richard Buckner (she called him "the incomparable Richard Buckner")
  • Lizzie West

I mean well, yeah, what else can I say? I’ve said so much in past entries already…if I give any more praise it may sound exaggerated.

Speaking of KCRW, if you’re a listener and haven’t subscribed/renewed yet, don’t forget…

Two musical artists I haven’t mentioned yet: Joseph Arthur and Paula Morelenbaum & Ryuichi Sakamoto. Their latest albums sound like keepers.

  1. 1. Ryuichi Sakamoto rocks.

    2. I made my KCRW pledge in Jan. Didn’t win the Powerbook G4 12″ tho’…. :-(

    3. I don’t usually listen to KCRW on the weekends, I did catch a little bit of WBE on Sunday and I believe I heard Glen Miller _In the Mood_… ah, nothing like a little Big Band to make the weekend complete!!! :-)


  2. 1a. :-)

    2a. Same here. Same here.

    3a. That’s right, Anne Litt did play Glenn Miller’s “In the Mood” — it was in the very last set of the show, close to 5 p.m. She may be the only KCRW programmer to mix in as many eras as much as music genres. MBE gets all the attention and glitz and glamour, but WBE is the primary reason why I subscribe now.
