  • Sometime early next year play some Ben Higginbotham with Cary Pierce as part of the Booker III project of Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing & Visual Arts in downtown. Ben won the Battle of the Bands at the Carrollton Festival that KXT helped sponsor. http://www.carrolltonfestival.com I’ll get the three song CD to you when it comes out. The CD will also include Tiger Darrow and Danielle Grubbs. http://www.youtube.com/user/2020higg has video of the winner’s concert. Ben got a few seconds of airplay and positive comments the following Monday morning on MIX 102.9 ’cause the deejay/emcee liked what he heard.

  • paul slavens

    Really liked the Bosque Borwn from earlier – that such modern, polished music’s coming out of north-central Texas would surprise the rest of the world methinks.

  • paul slavens

    perhaps, but I think the world is starting to get the picture

  • Ed in Arlington

    Terriffic Steely Dan cut – I’m surprised I hadn’t previously heard that excellent cut from them.

    Folks,

    A few weeks ago there at the recently refurbished Uptown Theater in Grand Prairie there was a weekend music festival – “Indiefest” or something close to that. Among others Sarah Jaffe was one of the scheduled acts that appealed to me. Did any of you attend? Were the promoters/producers satisfied with the turnout i.e. will it be done again next year? I wanted to go but missed it.

  • Ben Higginbotham has irregularly attended a Songwriter’s Workshop on Mondays with Lisa Markley & Bruce Balmer & Tom Prosada-Rao & Cary Cooper & others when school permits, even though he is a keyboardist. We will get you and the station the CD when it is out. BTW is a wonderful school for the Arts and for my son. Thank you.

  • paul slavens

    missed it too
    dont know nutthin

  • Ed in Arlington

    Here’s a little detective project for Paul (I know you love it when we don’t provide you with purchase details): fragments of a song I remember from the mid-seventies – mostly a mid-range, rapid, single-note guitar solo against a chugging but syncopated, start-and-stop rhythm, with a refrain consisting mainly of the phrase (sung in duet I believe) “Do YOU … Do you remember – do YOU?”. My best guess was that it sounded like it might’ve been by Head East but an internet search didn’t turn up much.

    Any leads anyone?

  • paul slavens

    yikes
    I got nothing

  • Hi Paul, while in Dublin this summer- checked out a show at Whelan’s of two musicians I had never heard of before: Our Little Secrets http://ourlittlesecrets.ie/ – “Daylight” great song & James Vincent McMorrow http://www.jamesvmcmorrow.com/ – :This Old Dark Machine” & ” Into the Woods” both great songs. Both great live shows.. and wonderful musicians.

  • Ed in Arlington

    Alright, here’s something easy – a song I love that I rarely hear on the radio anymore but that I think this audience will enjoy: “Easy to Slip” by the only true Little Feat (i.e. when Lowell George was fronting them).

    You can buy it here: http://www.amazon.com/Rhino-Hi-Five-Little-Feat/dp/B00122RQHU/ref=dm_ap_alb14.

  • paul slavens

    thanks for the tips, guys

  • Ed in Arlington

    Here’s another that’s due to be heard in its entirety (rather than just the snippets that’re showing up in NPR shows): “Cissy Strut” by one of the world’s original funk bands, The Meters, out of New Orleans.

    You can buy it here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00124BNAY/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_3?pf_rd_p=486539851&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B0000365IM&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=1HE8VMEZSXAZ90467R85.

  • paul slavens

  • Ed in Arlington

    And lastly: Marvin Gaye’s 1965 mega-hit “Ain’t That Peculiar”. I was reminded of it by Phil Collins’ latest release of covers but why not go with the original?
