I like the spooky scronky sax sounds of Matt Silberman

19 Sep

I don’t know if I met this guy in real life or just on facebook, but I keep hearing his music and loving it; just found out his new album Questionable Creatures is available through bandcamp for streaming or purchase.  

The Psychedelic Sax Sounds of Arnie Lawrence

22 Apr
Today my good friend, the great sax player Erik Lawrence is commemorating his great sax player dad Arnie Lawrence.  He posted this working link on facebook; you can cop a copy of Arnie Lawrence’s super groovy psychedelic jazz record Look Toward A Dream from the super groovy psychedelic year, 1968, in which Arnie gets psyched out with his buddies including Larry Coryell and Roy Haynes,  here:

John Lurie on the Morricone Youth show on East Village Radio Sunday at 2pm

17 Mar

As I’ve continually said, I’m wildly influenced as a saxophone player by John Lurie and The Lounge Lizards – I loved them when they first came out and I still love them today.  This Sunday John will be a guest on a show on East Village Radio at 2pm NYC time … the show is Morricone Youth — I’ve never tuned in before but I’m sure it’s great; I loved the band in the 90s which featured a great saxman, Dave Spinley, playing groovy movie themes.  Anyway, John Lurie is nowadays a great and prolific visual artist, but the radio show promises to play a lot of his music so I’ll be tuning in. 

Here’s the archived radio show: East Village Radio Player

I’m just going to post a bunch of videos.

I’ve been very lazy and uninclined about blogging lately so I think I’m just going to post a slew of links to videos of awesome horn based music that I like for the enjoyment of anyone who happens by and not feel like I have to even say anything. 

Isaac Hayes on Bari Sax leading the Stax horn section at Fame Studios

19 Jan




Thanks to soul music afficionado and performer Eli “Paperboy” Reed for sharing this excerpt from a French documentary called “Le Blues De Memphis” which has studio footage from Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.  Isaac Hayes is leading the five piece horn section around a conference table before tracking live, 5 horns to a microphone – ISAAC ON BARI!!  He does a great gliss at the end of the part.  No wonder when I saw him in concert at Prospect Park 6 weeks before he passed I had to concede that his synth horns sounded pretty much as good as the real thing. A little research just led me to discover that Isaac Hayes first job at Stax was a sax player in The Mar-Keys. There’s also great footage here of Brook Benton and Booker T and the MGs tracking Time is Tight.  This kind of history lesson can move me to tears.  I love Stax.
