Becky's Schedule of Cool Music Stuff - May 2007

Hey all,

This month marks the 10 year anniversary of the very first Becky's
Schedule of Cool Music Stuff monthly newsletter. Back in the spring
of 1997 a friend and I were simply trying to keep track of all the
shows we wanted to see. The schedule helped us arrange our lives
around LIVE music. I thought some other people might enjoy the
schedule too, so I e-mailed it out to a few friends, who sent it out
to a few friends, and then I started getting requests for it. The
first "official" mailer went out in May of 1997. It hardly seems like
it has been 10 years!

I want to thank all of the Live Music Fans for all of your kind words
and support over the years. And a special thanks to all of the Bands
for playing wonderful and very COOL Music! And mostly thanks to Walt
Sarkees who has been my "right hand man" with all of this since the
very beginning. Without his design skills and great ideas, none of
this would have ever been possible. Thank you!

Ok, enough with the sappy nostalgia - Go see some LIVE SHOWS!!!!!

Do you know of a Cool MySpace page that I should check out? Send me
an email and let me know. And while you're there, visit the Cool
Music Stuff MySpace page at http://www.myspace.com/CoolMusicStuff

Enjoy the shows!!

Peace,
Becky :)

Your purchase also supports the Homegrown Music Network!) John Medeski & Billy Martin "Mago" CD. Mago is Medeski & Martin's first duet album together. Medeski often uses the Hammond B3 foot pedals as bass accompaniment to their unique, soulful groove inventions. The album contains several hooky funk tracks and a few intense exploratory improvisations that will blow anyone's socks off. Get it here: http://tinyurl.com/233ugm The Greyboy Allstars "What Happened to TV?" CD. When The Greyboy Allstars first formed almost 15 years ago, some of the West Coast's visionary young musicians came together to realize the unique artistic vision of rare groove luminary DJ Greyboy: an original sound reminiscent of `70s soundtrack music. What Happened to Television?, the group's first studio album in nearly a decade, finds them reunited with DJ Greyboy, whose role as producer marks his first collaboration with the band since their seminal 1995 breakthrough, West Coast Boogaloo. Get it here: http://tinyurl.com/28l9gk Alison Krauss "A Hundred Miles Or More: A Collection" CD. This disc is comprised of 16 tracks highlighting Alison Krauss's career outside of her traditional releases with longtime band Union Station. Get it here: http://tinyurl.com/3yxb3q Jorma Kaukonen "Stars In My Crown" CD. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame- enshrined guitarist and founder of Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna returns with a stunning acoustic masterpiece. Continuing the journey through American roots music he started in the early 1960's, Jorma cooks up a tasty collection of down-home blues, bluegrass, folk, country gospel and reggae. Stars In My Crown was recorded in Nashville and is rooted in classic Americana, flavored with a laid- back bluesy feel. Get it here: http://tinyurl.com/37l5nh "Warren Haynes Presents The Benefit Concert Vol. 1" (2 CDs). This concert took place on the night of the Winter Solstice and the first full moon on that date in a century. This was originally recorded at the 11th Annual X-Mas Jam in Asheville, NC in December of 1999, and was released under the title of Wintertime Blues. This re-issue comes stocked with TWO brand new mixed and mastered tracks from Gov't Mule's electrifying set that have never been heard before.

Your purchase also supports the Homegrown Music Network!) "Live Phish - 4/5/98 Civic Center, Providence, RI" (3 CDs). Keeping with the "Island Tour" theme of amazing openers, this last stop begins with "Oh Kee Pah Ceremony" and lunges into "You Enjoy Myself," which sends the crowd into a frenzy. A unique first set houses the rare "McGrupp" and a funktastic "Bathtub Gin" into "Cities," rounded out with a ripping "SOAMelt." The outrageous second set utilizes some unheard of segues and jams to make sense of an apparently unplanned setlist that somehow merges "Maze -> Shafty -> Possum -> Cavern" into a coherent journey. Get it here: http://tinyurl.com/3dvoqb Willie Nelson "Countryman" CD. 10 years in the making, Willie's first ever reggae album merges the gospel and soul spirit found in both reggae and country music. His band's spirited arrangements merge reggae's righteous pulse and a steely country-blues swagger, all topped with Willie's inimitable vocals. Features Toots Hibbert on "I'm A Worried Man." Get it here: http://tinyurl.com/2k3faq Jerry Garcia Band "Live At Shoreline" DVD. Jerry Garcia Band: Live at Shoreline is the first-ever DVD release of a Jerry Garcia Band show. On September 1, 1990, at the Shoreline Amphitheatre, the Jerry Garcia Band performed a particularly poignant kind of magic. Get it here: http://tinyurl.com/2ps4yg Michael Franti "I Know I'm Not Alone" DVD. In 2004 Michael Franti decided to `walk his talk' and traveled to the war zones of Iraq, Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories. This wasn't a USO green zone sponsored visit Franti and his team organized a trip that would take him to the core of the red-zoned, war torn neighborhoods of Baghdad, the West Bank and Gaza Strip armed with only a guitar, video cameras and the intent to experience first hand the human cost of war. Throughout his journey he shares his music with families, doctors, musicians, soldiers and everyday people who in turn reveal to him the often overlooked human cost of war. Out of this expedition, Franti has produced and directed a compelling documentary film titled I Know I'm Not Alone. With its guerrilla- style footage captured in active war zones, the documentary is unlike the many academic and politically driven pieces in the marketplace, instead offering the audience a sense of intimate travel and the opportunity to hear the voices of everyday people living, creating and surviving under the harsh conditions of war and occupation. Get it here: http://tinyurl.com/ttjyq Various Artists "Drum Nation Vol. 2" CD. For this volume, Pete Morticelli ventured into the labels vaults and retrieved some of the most stirring performances you've ever heard from indisputably the most influential drummers of our time.
