Coleman predicted the future by accurately titling his 1959 album “The Shape of Jazz to Come.” Nearly a half-century later, his album “Sound Grammar” won the Pulitzer Prize for music. The man defined the word “innovation.” This is a huge loss.

"Persuasians?" They're not Asian. And Stereogum needs spellcheck.

Given the state of Bob's voice these days, I'd say he sounded pretty spectacular last night. That goes for the band as well. "Willfully strange?" "Meandering?" Bob's not exactly known for being smiley and chatty onstage or television, so this is pretty much par for the course. What were you expecting? Do you even know anything about Dylan? Jeez.

May 13, 2015 on VNYL Sliding: Why The “Netflix For Vinyl” Service Is Such A Mess
I see your point, but - to be fair - the Honeydrippers album is from the '80s. BUT STILL.

May 13, 2015 on VNYL Sliding: Why The “Netflix For Vinyl” Service Is Such A Mess
I know a half-dozen used record (vinyl) stores here in the Boston area where I'm sure you can get every single unwanted record mentioned in this article (Jefferson Airplane, Dan Fogelberg, Lionel Richie, etc) for two bucks apiece, tops. That makes VNYL's monthly fee four times more expensive than it needs to be. Sounds like this was not completely thought out before execution. Build up a solid collection before beginning your operation - don't go hog wild at a dozen yard sales and then claim you have a collection to pick from. Also, who wants to "rent" records? Part of the attraction of vinyl's resurgence is being a collector, not a borrower.

Can we put a moratorium on the term "hand-curate?" It makes you sound like precious Wes Anderson fanboys.

Wow, I sure hope that was sarcasm. New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Baltimore, yeah - nobody ever plays those dumps.

April 14, 2015 on Jack White Plans Surprise $3 Acoustic Shows Before Long Live Hiatus
Elvis makes sense - he's been on Dave's show a zillion times, he even guest hosted during "Shingles 2003." Tom's a frequent guest, and - speaking personally - his appearance on Dave's show back in '85 or '86 (promoting "Rain Dogs") was what made me a Waits fan. As far as Foo Fighters go - it's a given that they'll be on the show. Dave has referred to them as his favorite band, and they're big fans of his. I wouldn't be surprised if they're on the very last episode.

I'm not really in the best income bracket to afford Stones tickets, but a reissue of "Sticky Fingers" with a "generous selection" of unreleased material? Yes please!

Forget about the music for a minute - EVERYBODY PUT YOUR DAMN PHONES DOWN! Sorry to get into grumpy old man mode, but whatever happened to just watching the performance with your eyes instead of documenting every nanosecond so everyone on social media knows you're there? Morons.

I guess I should give Modern Guilt another try. Having said that, I still believe that Midnite Vultures is too low here. It's top three material, easily. Even as a purely superficial, booty-shaking party album, it's a masterpiece, IMHO.

Good times! Meanwhile, I spent $25 to see Johnny Marr at a small club in Boston over the weekend and had the time of my life.

November 20, 2014 on Morrissey Storms Offstage In Poland After Fan’s Offensive Comment
I agree wholeheartedly that the Jam were (and continue to be) severely under-appreciated on U.S. shores. Perhaps their early opening slot on a Blue Oyster Cult tour (true story) had something to do with their failed trajectory. Since their career was relatively short and they only released a handful of studio albums, I'm not so sure that their discography is suited to this kind of treatment. Paul Weller's solo career, however, is another story. Talk about under-appreciated!

TL;DR. Oasis' first couple of albums contained a handful of decent songs, but success went to their heads and they've been phoning it in ever since. To this day, I have no idea why these guys remain wildly popular in their native land.
