    Had the pleasure of chatting with the legendary fusion violinist today.



    **For Episode #75 we caught up violinist Jerry Goodman. We discussed the recent session work he is doing and then looked back on his amazing career. We discuss his early days with The Flock and his first use of the "electric" violin. How he came to work with John McLaughlin on John's solo album My Goals Beyond comes up next, leading to the creation of the Mahavishnu Orchestra. We discuss their seminal fusion albums The Inner Mounting Flame and the follow up, Birds of Fire. Their creation and the tours for them. Also, we look at the live Between Nothingness and Eternity and it's studio counterpart, The Lost Trident Sessions. We also discuss Jerry hooking up with the Dixie Dregs in the mid 90s and the studio album they did, Full Circle. Jerry's soundtrack work for Lily Tomlin and Steve Martin also is looked into. Albums from Derik Sherinian and other guest spots are discussed as well.

    Had a great chat with Kevin yesterday that I think many of you will enjoy. We discussed his recent solo album, Muscle Memory, and it's new companion, Conversations With Myself. Then looked back on his days with 10cc and Godley and Creme via a look at several songs along the way.

    Whoa, David Paton! Or should I say "Whoa, ho, ho it's David Paton?" (Pilot reference) That should be a great one. I think he also played with Fish (or did I imagine that?). I THINK he did, so ask him! Should definitely be interesting to hear what he has to tell us about APP and Kate Bush! Can't wait for that one. Oh, and Camel! Wow.

    Ask Barry Andrews how he got the nickname "Hodah." I have no clue.

    Had a new chat with Jonathan, Leslie, Jim, Tim and Andrew this weekend to discuss their new live album, Screenplay, and a whole lot more. **For Episode #80 we caught up with the modern progressive rock band to discuss their new live album, "Screenplay". We also chat about their next studio album that's in the works now, how they came to add Tim and Andrew to their lineup and how their influences have shaped the band's current sound. Also, the prog festival circuit, cover tunes and their amazing tour with the late John Wetton (UK, King Crimson, Asia) performing favorites from the era of Crimson John was involved in comes up. Personal musical likes and influences are discussed as well.

    Sean, I'm a little unclear on whether or not these interviews are streamed live on YouTube or not, so are they?
    Also, is a date set yet (and time) if it's streamed live, for Barry Andrews?

    These are streamed on Facebook as they occur and then I upload them to YouTube. When my YT subscriber count rivals my FB friend count I will probably air them on YouTube, but at the moment they get a lot more views this way. We're friends on FB, right? Barry's show will stream live in the afternoon of April 17th on my profile page. I have yet to nail down a start time but will share it once I know. FB sends out a notification when I go live too.

    If you missed this weekend's look at The Evolution of Steely Dan music, here's the rebroadcast. We tried to strike a balance for fans and musicians alike. We do dip into some 'music theory' but there's quite a bit to enjoy when it comes to each song even if you aren't into theory. We take a close look at who is on each track in addition to how the tunes are put together. Big thanks to Atlanta music educator/pianist Bill Graham for co-hosting this one. We look at a tune from each of the 70s albums and discuss how the music got more sophisticated as the records progressed. We look at Do It Again, Bodhisattva, Pretzel Logic, Dr Wu, Green Earrings, Deacon Blues and Babylon Sisters. Also, we discuss how we came to love this music, a look at the reunion albums, and how Becker and Fagen reimagined classics like Do It Again for the 90s live Steely "band".

    Each segment and song has a time stamp in the comments at YT if you want to skip around.

    If you missed our chat with Billy Cobham today, here's the rebroadcast. Big thanks to Eric Sanders (of the Yeti Trio) for co-hosting with me. **For Episode #82 my co-host Eric Sanders and I caught up legendary drummer Billy Cobham.

After that, we look back on his days with the likes of Horace Silver, Miles Davis, John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Jazz Is Dead and much more.

    I caught about an hour. It was interesting but a bit technical. It was educational for serious keyboard players.

    The Steely? Yeah, it was a bit of a theory-fest. Hope it was fun just to hear him play the bits of the tunes though.

    Had a cool chat today with Jack Hues. I know Rob LaDuca is a big fan of Jack's work (as am I) so I asked him to co-host. Fun stuff!

    **For Episode #84 Jack Hues drops by to chat with Sean and his co-host, Rob LaDuca. You may remember Jack is the frontman for Wang Chung. He's also a big lover of progressive rock and even lives in Canterbury, England. An area that was home to many musicians that went on to define that a sub genre of prog rock named after the Canterbury area. Jack has helped pen a recent book on the area and it's players, “The Canterbury Sound in Popular Music”. We ponder the essence of it and discuss some seminal albums and works from the likes of Caravan, Hatfield and the North, Egg and Soft Machine. We also take a look at modern Canterbury artists like Syd Arthur, who Jack has collaborated with. His recent solo album PRIMITIF is discussed as well, and it's new follow up which should be available Summer 2021. We take a look at his days with Wang Chung as well. Details on the writing and recording of 80s pop classics like "Everybody Have Fun Tonight" (and it's cutting edge video directed by Godley & Creme), "Dance Hall Days" and "To Live and Die in LA". MTV memories, 80s tours with The Cars and Tina Turner and more!

    Excellent shows as always! Thanks Sean.

    Thanks! We have some more of those type of shows in the works where we look at how an artist puts their music together. I think we will do Zappa next, though it will take more than one show to dig into his work properly. I'd love to do ones on Gentle Giant and Todd Rundgren too. I think one on Brian Wilson could be good as well. Bill knows all of that music quite well.

    Had a chat with one of my favorite guitarists you might not be familiar with, John Jorgenson. ***For Episode #88 we chat with guitarist John Jorgenson about his diverse career. He's been part of Elton John's band on and off since the 90s and also helped found the instrumental guitar trio The Hellecasters with Will Ray and Jerry Donahue. He was also guitarist in the Calfornia country group The Desert Rose Band, with former Byrd Chris Hillman. John is also a specialist in the gypsy-jazz style of Django Reinhardt, who's style and works we take a look at. Cool talk of guitars and gear too! He's a big Yes fan too.

    Here's the first of three shows this weekend. **For Episode #89 we caught up with author & guitarist Anthony Garone to discuss his new book, "Failure to Fracture- Learning King Crimson's Impossible Song". The book chronicles his 20+ year journey as he dissected and learned the technically demanding instrumental epic "Fracture" off of King Crimson's 1974 album, Starless and Bible Black. Anthony gives us the details on his initial inspiration to learn the piece and the pitfalls he encountered along the way. Also, his eventual choice to attend King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp's Guitar Craft course, which provided the epiphany needed to retool his picking style and finally perform "Fracture" in the confident manner and proper tempo Anthony intended all along. He also discusses it's equally demanding (if not moreso) follow up, "FraKctured" from the 2000 album The ConstruKction of Light. Anthony is also the founder of the excellent musical YouTube channel, Make Weird Music. MWM offers enticing interviews with musicians from the worlds of prog rock, fusion, world music and much more. We take a few minutes to discuss the MWM channel and Anthony's early influences and technical triumphs.
