Dave Brubeck has moved on to a new time signature. Let us Take Five… and listen to Blue Rondo à la Turk.
My man Joel Griggs (guitar, right) playing with Us, Today at MOTR Pub in Cincinnati. Enjoy the groove.
Balkan Beat Box, from “Blue Eyed Black Boy”. I like the animated rendering of Tomer Yosef.
I found this rather addictive online game, Red. Of course, I only play it when I am, er, compiling. Um, yeah. That’s the ticket. The thing is, the game also has a great soundtrack, which introduced me to a band called Koop. Their music alternates between eerie ambient and big-band-ish. They may have a big-band [...]

Ah! What better day in the year can we find [...]
Once again, Black Cat Zoot, whose walkin’ is always swingin’:
First, a short glossary. Homologous genes are descended from a common ancestral gene. There are two types of homology: Orthology is homology due to a speciation event. So if there is a gene A’ in humans and A” in mice, and they are obviously similar in sequence, we infer that they homologous. We usually also [...]
If she were alive today, Ella Fitzgerald would have been 92. Sadly she is not, but her majestic singing will be with us for centuries to come. Oscar Peterson on the piano, Ray Brown bass and Ed Thigpen drums. A moving interpretation of Thelonious Monk`s ‘Round Midnight.
