Of course, Quincy Jones and Bernard Ighner introduced this song to the world...George Benson had a hit with it, but James did his own soulful rendition...And it's true! Everything must change, but we'll always remember the great music of James Ingram!

RIP, Home boy. I used to hang with his brother Phillip from time to time as a kid.
He could scat like Bobby McFerrin.

I also wanted to note the passing of Harold Bradley, a world-famous country guitarist...

https://www.msn.com/en-us/music/news/ha ... ailsignout

You may have heard his guitar on countless classics such as Roy Orbison's "Crying" and "Only The Lonely", Patsy Cline's "Crazy", Tammy Wynette's "Stand By Your Man", Bobby Vinton's "Blue Velvet", Brenda Lee's "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree", Eddy Arnold's "Make The World Go Away" and many more pop and country hits! R.I.P. to one of the session greats! :(

I love Hank Bradley's guitar work. He is missed. I think he is highly overlooked in the shadows of Owen Bradley and other well deserved studio musicians. A real solid brick in the fabric of Nashville.

It seems that we have just lost Peter Tork of The Monkees.....

That's sad, I grew up watching reruns of their show in the 70's.

Weird fact, Micky Dolenz used to live a couple of miles away from me in a village called Winthorpe.

Well, since I just got this record, how much more a fitting tribute can I give? :)



R.I.P. Peter!

Our local NPR celebrity, Colin, hosts a show that explores “the sublime and ridiculous” and Peter being a resident of CT was subject of an interview a few years back:

I also wanted to note the passing of another legendary figure at the age of 98, Mr. Ken Nordine, on February 16th...

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/22/obit ... -dead.html

Known for his "word jazz" albums, his interesting prose and poetry were quite popular in the 50's and 60's...An interesting side note is that bandleader Dick Marx did most of the musical accompaniment for those word jazz albums...You may not know who Dick Marx is, but you would definitely recognize his songwriting and singing son, Richard! :wink:

Ken once said that his job was to “make people think about their thinking and feel about their feeling, but even more important to think about their feeling and feel about their thinking.” Here's are a couple examples of his stuff...




If you wanna get a nice overview of the man, I highly recommend this CD...

I have just heard the sad news of the passing of Mark Hollis of Talk Talk fame.
Amazing music.
One of the best 80,s bands.
