“Roxanne” 2007: A Jazz Odyssey

So, we broke even. Transposed down to suit Sting’s vocal cords, spaced out for the benefit of the young, drug-loving generation next, The Police celebrated the 30th anniversary of “Roxanne” by playing “Roxanne.” Stewart looked awfully spry with his traditional-gripping drum fills; Oysterhead did him good!

A Grammys Wish

Dear Grammy,

We will be liveblogging you on Sunday, and all we ask is for something like this to happen…

A Grammy Scenario

A charming tidbit from Lefsetz:There are TOO MANY categories. If you can?t get nominated for a Grammy, you?re not a musician. Cut the list. Make it MANAGEABLE, make it MEAN something.

And create new categories. Most E-Mailed track. Most TRADED track. Just put in SOMETHING hip, SOMETHING to acknowledge the sea change in the… More »

FYI — Eligibility “year” is 10/1/04 to 9/30/05. That’s why no Ariel Pink! Mariah, Kanye, and John Legend are today’s happy campers, with eight nods each. But here are the categories you might care (to argue) about:

Award to the Artist (and Producers/Engineers/Mixers).

Album Of The Year, Grammy Stizz

As I’ve written before, the only Grammy win I ever remember is Album Of The Year. Here are the current standings at…GRAMMY ODDS TO WIN… More »

More Grammy Buzz

Now here’s something I didn’t expect to see at the Grammys:

Margaret Cho is hott! Buzz.

Also, I should’ve blogged this yesterday like I planned, ’cause Low Culture had the same idea and beat me to it. Anyway, here’s Amazon’s dynamic VDay promotion in a decidedly unromantic context.
