I enjoy listening to music. It sets the "Tone" for the day.Bye
Lynn...have you ever seen the movie "Reservoir Dogs", directed by Quentin Tarentino?

After seeing that movie, you'll never feel the same way about "Stuck in the Middle with You" again.....
I like "Strawberry letter 23" which was also in a Quentin Tarentino Movie. My trivia question to you is do you know which movie?
Jackie Brown, baby... 8)
Nice Job. It's the scene that Chris Rock gets shot in.

This is end of the 60s beginning 70s still my favorite Janis Joplin song. BTW it counts as a band because this was part ofJ anis and Big Brother and the Holding Company before she went solo.

She has an interesting voice. I like that she sings with emotion. She sings like a Fado singer. Fado music is a portuguese style of music. I find this statement on a website and I found it to be true.
"Fado songs are typically lyrically harsh, with the singer resigned to sadness, poverty and loneliness, but remaining dignified and firmly controlled."
This is what I think of when I hear Janis Joplin sing. I would have been cool to hear her live.

Coming in late in the chain, but...

Angela - I'm a huge Southside Johnny fan and living in Atlanta I never get to see them any more. What a great Horn Band.

Sad to say there are not many horn bands around these days; although Lyle Lovett has a great horn section when he tours with the "Big Band". Synth horns are just not the same.

Dave - nice to see you posting again. Never could find your facebook page. Is the next cruise with or without the boys?

Default Horn Bands

Venice...

If you know Chicago bands there was one called The Flock from about 1970. The only famous one to come out of there was Jerry Goodman on Violin. He played with Mahavishnu, John McLaughlin.

The best jazz was from the 60s / 70s ¡ Miles, Weather Report, Tom Scoot, Soft Machine (regulars at Ronnie Scotts in London).

When I lived in LA in the 70s I lived just behind the Baked Potato. Everynight I would walk by and hear Tom Scoot with John Gurien on drums and George Duke on Keyboards (I think).

I had the pleasure of recording Jeff (Skunk) Baxter once in LA, from Steely Dan.

On a sad note, I don´t know if you heard that Waymond Tisdale just passed away - a great bass player and basketball player for the Phoenix Suns.

One of the good thing about the 70's era bands is that they played their own instruments, gutiar, bass, drums, keyboards and horns. And to top things off they sang also. There was a lot of good bands in the 70's with really good horn sections. We can't forget Brass Construction.

I know we are talking about 70's era but there was a group of guys that played for James Brown. Not really jazz but they put together some pretty funky arrangments. Fred Wesley, Maceo Parker and Bernie Worrell. They were JB's horn section. They later formed a trio and called themselves "Fred Wesley and the Horny Horns". JB and the Famous Flames were around in the fifties.

I don't know Brass Construction. No one here mentioned if they knew about Soft Machine. originally a three-piece band who opened for Hendrix, they later added horns and went all insturmental (in the 70s) and became one of Britain's premier jazz bands.

I saw Miles Davis play twice in the 70s. (1971 and 1973).

SeaDog..a few years ago at the Essence Festival Prince had Maceo Parker in his horn section along with smooth jazz sax superstar (and my next ex wife) Candy Dulfer and needless to say it was one awesome horn section

Paul..never heard of them, but I will do some listening research

That must have been an awsome experience. Prince, Parker and Dulfer, solid.

Ah back to the 1970's when I was in my twenties, footloose, and fancy free. I must say that I loved Chicago, Moody Blues, Earth Wind@Fire, and The Village People. Alas, gone is my youth but not my idealism. Being a cruisemate I will always lust for travel on the open seas.

Balabusta....all is not lost 8) 8) 8) ..there are more and more 70's music theme cruises that you can have the best of both worlds..cruising on the open seas and listening to great bands from the 70's live and up close

EW& F were just at the New Orleans Jazz Festival this year and wow, did they put on a show

The 70's band War will be on the Capital Jazz Cruise in October...I'll be there singing along with them when they do 'Cisco Kid, was a friend of mine'
