Nix, Nix On Politics! Take Time Out For Pilsner's Picks!

Posted on November 1, 2016 at 10:16pm 1 Comment

If you've had about enough of both The Donald and The Hillary (I know that I have) and can't wait for this whole god-awful election to finally be over with, maybe it's time to enjoy a little trip to the past for a restful musical interlude. The Picks are, and always have been, strictly non-political; however, be warned— there's a "Washington Squabble" in here, too!

The "Serious Nonsense" of Bruce McCall

Posted on November 1, 2016 at 4:09am 0 Comments

I usually don't post anything here but the monthly link to the Pilsner's Picks playlist (coming soon!), but this little video is definitely worth watching. Bruce McCall— a longtime artistic hero of mine— invented a "retro-future" that's seriously bent!





If you're old enough to remember the National Lampoon in its 1980's-90's heyday, you've seen his work. But if you haven't seen it before, you're in for a treat. The man has a wildly inventive imagination, and just the…

It's October And There's A Chill In The Air, But The MUSIC Is Still Hot— At Pilsner's Picks!

Another dozen sizzling platters to warm up your roost on these increasingly cold evenings of Octo- brrr!



This month I'm featuring one of the most unusual collaborations of the Jazz Age, the very unlikely one between "society" bandleader Leo Reisman and Duke Ellington's low-down, growling trumpet star Bubber Miley (who was heard on last month's playlist, wailing with the Duke's band on their early Victor side "Flaming Youth").

As The Leaves Turn To Gold, I've Got Music That's Old— The September Pilsner's Picks!

Yes, friends, summer is winding down, but I'm still winding up the old Victrola. Notable in this month's "grab bag," a great example of Duke Ellington's early "jungle sound," featuring the growling, snarling, low-down plunger-muted trumpet of the great Bubber Miley. Also, the aptly-named British theater organist Sidney Torch burns up the keyboard of a Mighty Wurlitzer, and don't miss the pure, driving New Orleans collective improvisation sound of Sam Morgan's Jazz Band.

Kind regards,
