    Jam of the day

    Take a few minutes each day to listen to some great music.

    4/4/12 - Robin Trower "Bridge of Sighs"

    Nice selection.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I was listening to NIN "Closer" on the way into work today. I will not post the link to the video as neither the song or video is work safe.

    I tend to prefer jam over jelly. Raspberry is my favorite.

    I like rasberry, too. But this morning I liked it even better while I listened to Wilco's "I am Trying to Break your Heart" from Yankee Foxtrot Hotel.

    There's a mandatory 12 hour man card suspension for me choosing a show tune, but it's worth it to hear the heavy duty harmony of "Seasons of Love" from the musical 'Rent' (the good part starts to kick in around 1:30)

    As I'm looking at this thread, I'm listening to "Monsters" by Gothminister on Pandora.

    I have a great Pandora station built around the old Boston band "Luna" - great stuff - threw in Zero 7 for a chill feel and The Bird and the Bee so I feel a little hipster


    ...and I'm more of a marmalade person...

    Sweet Jane This time by Phish.

    Their take on Sweet Jane is quite the jam, but has anyone else noticed that even though Phish might perform 200 different songs, there's a certain repetitive quality seen when viewing their body of work in the larger sense? Seems every song has one or more outstanding solo 'jam' which consists of cascades and cascades of chromatic scales. I'm not trying to get down on these enormously talented musicians, just pointing out a creative limitation they have (and many other artists as well).

    I've got the ultimate jam for you. Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry and bassist Tom Hamilton originally played in a band known as the "Jam Band" prior to forming Aerosmith. They would play a lot of blues-rock and would have extended jam sessions. One of the songs they used to play, "Rattlesnake Shake" (a song by the early incarnation of Fleetwood Mac), still gets played at Aerosmith concerts these days. However, it is still more of a rarity. They will only play the song at a handful of shows on a given tour...I've been lucky enough to see them do this though. The performance of this song typically lasts over 10 minutes, with much of the latter half consumed by an extended breakout jam session. It's just awesome to see a band just jam out and kick ass on a song like this.

    That you can hear it any day of the week on classic rock radio does not diminish the fact that 'Back in the Black' by AC/DC has perhaps the greatest riff in rock history
