As much as it probably shouldn"t, this totally shocks me.  I can only hope something positive eventually comes out of this young woman's tragic demise. May she rest in peace.

Dewey,
Nicole Kidman tells a great story about her mother and Nicole's fame. When Nicole finally broke through with a big role, that paid money she told her mom....."I am gonna buy you a beautiful home"

Her mom, said thanks but no thanks. The rejection took some air out of Nicole's sail....but her mom said....you are in a tough business, one where many will tell you what you want to hear, and and grant you your every wish. The moment I accept an expensive gift from you, I lose that leverage to tell you want you need to hear, and  do the best for you.

Unfortunately few celebrities have someone who will stand up to them and tell them what they need to hear for fear of losing the golden goose. It sad on so many levels.

Being a classically trained musician, after 33 years in Nashville I can admit to having acquired an appreciation for country music.  Somewhere along the line I decided I like Texas Swing, so thank goodness Asleep at the Wheel has kept Bob Wills legacy alive:



If I'm in a funk, this group always picks me up.

Flowers that bloom beautiful.
Annuals or perennials?
The grandeur of the moment,
does not reveal.
Cherish what today you see.
Tomorrow may never be.

RIP AW

To me, special things happen when you augment the written word with music...the two become inseparable.  Add a visual dimension and it takes it to another level.  No matter what my feelings are about war, I can't watch the following without being affected, especially thinking of families who have loved ones across the world in harm's way.  Picture the video without the music and I think you will get my drift:

Haven't seen that in a while.  Thanks.  Pretty special bond between dad and daughter.  Wonder what the little girl will be doing 10 years from now?

People remember him as the man with the deep voice but few remember he was a very good composer.

I know it may be perceived as cocky/arrogant, but on our happy day, I was gonna share this song with you that was played at our wedding.  I just love it too much to not share.

I was watching the Blue Jays/Rangers game today and when the name Teagarden was mentioned (Taylor, catcher, Texas) my ears perked up. I don't think it is any relation to the late, great trombonist, Jack Teagarden, but it did get me to reminiscing.

Jack was an innovator with his instrument and he was also a vocalist that I enjoyed listening to.  He had a tobacco/whiskey kind of voice and I especially enjoyed his renderings of  "Stars Fell on Alabama" and "I Got A Right To Sing The Blues".
Another one, sung with singer/songwriter, Johnny Mercer was, "Christmas Night In Harlem".  
I don't know if that was recorded while both were imbibing as they were known to do, but I would not be surprised.
I do enjoy these trips down memory lane triggered by a word or a phrase. Nice.

tenfour,

It is probably just a coincidence, but Teagarden was born in Vernon, TX.

By the way, these guys did Hotel California and it was awesome but youtube removed it due to copyright laws.

Tenfour,
According to baseball prospectus, Taylor is the great grandnephew of legendary jazz trombonist Jack Teagarden.

http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=TEAGARDEN19831221A

JD - those guys are quite talented. I watched videos of their collaborations and solo work. Good stuff. Also appears they are building a strong following through the Internet. Hopefully online venues will keep the door of opportunity open for more artist. Myspace is being re-worked so that musicians not signed to major labels can continue to get exposure, notify fans of shows and sell music. As we know the most talented don't always get the big record deal.

Good work LMSS.  So it obviously was not a coincidence!

Great video on Dad and DD.  My bet is she will be on 20th anniversary show of American Idol, competing and top 10 material.  A future Haley Reinhart

Way cool, LMSS.  How far is Oak Park River Forest High from Austin High, or does Austin High still exist?  BTW,  I presume Harry's Law was a rerun tonight.  Great episode, but perhaps at the expense of Ray Kroc!

Yes Harry's was a rerun and thank you for your support. Austin High....if it still exist was the furthest west you could get in Chicago without going into Oak Park. Oak Park borders Chicago's western border, then River Forest is the next town. So Austin was about 15 minutes away.
