7 and 7 is 1967

I was reminded on January 4, the 50th anniversary of The Doors debut that 1967 was a pretty amazing year for music. I then thought that so was 1977, 1987…and so on. So this week in honor of 7,  I give you my favorite 7 albums that came out in a year ending in 7. […]

Favorite Albums 2016

My top ten list in no particular order.  As I look at the list, there is a lot of despair, desperation and death but also a little bit of hope and faith in moving forward.  May 2017 brings a little more of the latter. David Bowie “Blackstar” A great album that sadly became more poignant […]

Leonard Cohen

Nobody would have questioned the Noble Prize committee if Leonard Cohen had been awarded the Noble Prize for Literature instead of Bob Dylan.  Leonard’s words created some of the most memorable characters, places and things.  I want to laugh and cry with Marianne. I want to go to that unmade bed in the Chelsea Hotel, […]

Although Lady Gaga released a covers album with Tony Bennett in 2014, it’s been three years since her last album of original material was released.

New Music Tuesday

I’m not sure how he does it, but Leonard Cohen‘s deep growl makes me swoon.   I know the man just turned 80 (September 21) but when the heartbeat bass drum, the hammond organ and the background singers chime in that they “always like it slow”, it just hits me where I live. For those […]
