The image of a blind Bhutanese musician playing an erhu-like bowed instrument is forever engraved in my mind. A couple of years before this dreadful pandemic, I was lucky enough to enter the Kingdom of Bhutan, and while I had no idea what to expect, I almost went nuts. Probably the most fascinating place I've ever been, in every aspect. On the musical side, it naturally shares many similarities with Nepalese music, because, Buddhism, but keeping their own thing as well.

last year i binged king of the hill & i didn't understand the hate for ole chuck mangione. i had never listened to him before, i just knew him from the show. so i finally got around to it over the summer & discovered that i'm a dum dum. what a beautiful & vibrant album of gorgeously elastic jazz. his playing reminds me of sam gendel at points, so do the smart thing & download this.

sorry for the shitty res on the cover, it's the best i could find with a three second google search. anyway, this came out in the late eighties through innovative communication, & if yr into what private music was doing around this time, then this will be right up yr alley.

hey there, hope y'all are staying safe & sane out there. been listening to a lot of music since the start of covid, & have been toying around with the idea of coming back. don't know how frequently i'd be posting, but would like to share some jams & reconnect with some of the folks from yesteryear (s/o flash, walking trees, owl, ghost cap & all of the rest of the pb crew & especially to buruno, reach out sometime amigo!) anyway, here is some jazz fusion from 86 recorded with a synthaxe for the mpcs.

don't think of this as a come back, this is just an album i've really been enjoying & i wanted to share it with y'all. jack kevorkian (yeah dr death) made this fucking tight jazz album from 1997 where he played flute & organ. heavy vince guaraldi (if you're not a humongous fan of him then you're doing something wrong) vibes abound. as a matter of fact if i didn't know & someone played this for me i would just think they were some lost charlie brown cues. not my rip, but do we even have to say that anymore now that blogs are dead?

hey gang, sorry for not being around very much, it's summer & life has gone left for me. anyway, i'll be moving to portland in the beginning of september, so i'm selling off some of my tapes & vinyl to help fund the move. i'll try to be more active in the next month & a half because after the move there will probably be radio silence for a while. forever forward.
ps this hisaishi joint is real nice, just don't expect any fireworks.
pps buy my stuff here

hey, it's been a minute. just in time for the dead heat of summer here is my latest mix of chopped & screwed ratty europop records & dubious chillout spa comps. meant to be listened to loudly on a porch with yr heads in the clouds. hope everyone is enjoying their summer.
ps if y'all want a d/l link just lemme know.
