Cap'n's Cabaret #95: Two to Tango?

Would you care to Tango with me, mi amor?

I wish to show you this dance of love.  It is hotter than the streets of Buenos Aires and Montevideo from whence it came.  A slow, sensuous dance of passion that knows no equal when it comes to seduction. [image from inthehallofmirrors.typepad.co.uk]

Long strides and intimate space puts us,…

I Can't See My Bass Player!

Jazz is a language. The live performance of jazz engages an audience in a conversation that is both interactive and communicative. The audience benefit in a live concert is enhanced by the spontaneity and body language of the group.

In the jazz ensemble it is impossible for musicians to communicate vocally. It would ruin the moment for the leader to shout, "CODA!" over the music.(although it is acceptable for Count Basie to say, "One more time" at the end of a…

Cap'n's Cabaret #92: A "Blue Note" in Memphis

What is the color of sorrow, strife, and striving? Can Music be Blue?  W.C. Handy of Memphis thinks so!

It's a bully new sound, mined from the traditional Negro sounds of the deep south, full of heartache and perserverence. This "Blues" music has a sorrowful, soulful sound built by generations of hard living and finding the simple joys that help you…

Of Guernica and Damascus

It was the seat of an ancient empire, once the world's foremost.  A trade-hub for several continents.  Of late, it had fallen into hard times, a divided population held together by a tottering regime.  Division led to tension, conflict, then full-blown Civil War.  Soon a bloodthirsty fascist, backed by authoritarian governments, beset by a divided, rag-tag group of ever-more-radicalized rebels, would unleash escalating acts of attrocity against his own people.…

September Pilsner's Picks - A Labor of Love!

Since it's Labor Day weekend, I've labored long and hard to produce this month's Picks playlist [Pilsner mops his steaming brow, collapses in a heap].

Well, no, not really— it only takes me about an hour or so at the keyboard, sipping a nice cool drink. But that sure sounds good, now doesn't it?
