A musical chameleon, pianist Keith Jarrett was at his finest when he recorded these sustained solo improvisations in a German concert hall in 1975, the first lasting 26 minutes, the second 40.
Melodies and rhythmic figures arise fluidly from his fingers as he moves from one idea to another, while his strong left hand is often used for repeated motifs that generate a rolling hypnotic power.

1975 was the year that America seemed on the verge of collapse as the Vietnam War finally ended.

When Patti Smith burst onto the NYC underground scene in 74' with Hey Joe/Piss Factory, she was exciting - something which the music scene just now could do with a dose of.
The interest in the NYC punk scene, CGBG club and the bands who have passed through these scenes (The VU, The Strokes, Patti Smith herself, Blondie et al) seems to have rekindled in part thanks to the resurgence of blues-punk like the White Stripes and The Moldy Peaches, and pop-punk like the everpresent Strokes.
The fact that I am only 16 proves that Smith is still relevant today - she doesn't belong to the 70's or the 80's where she made her name, her mark can still be seen here in todays burgeoning garage-rock and underground scene - try it...

The cartoon metal and surf music hooks played loud and heavy by the Dictators and louder and faster by the Ramones epitomized the teenage delinquent image.
Blondie became one of the music's few commercial successes, first with '60s nostalgia, then through experiments in disco, reggae, and rap.

I have broadened my tastes beyond the jazz I loved so much at one time, but improvisational music will always be my favorite style, and jazz is the ultimate form of that because there are no boundaries to the influences on jazz musicians.
The last two years of high school I was not actively playing music, but when I went off to college in 1966, I did what many of my generation were doing – I took up guitar, grew my hair long, and joined a rock band.
When my kids became teenagers I was exposed to musical styles that I wouldn't ordinarily discover on my own, some of which was not even around when I was younger.

At the young age of twenty-eight, she brings a degree of maturity and involvement to Carnatic music that is commensurate with her professional experience of over two decades.
This finally led to a divergence between the music systems of the north and the south, as Carnatic music did not undergo some of the metamorphoses that took place in the north.

It has become legend that Dylan will change arrangements and switch lyrics at the drop of a hat, which was evident on his jaunt with the Band in 1974, preserved for posterity on Before the Flood.
The music is amazing, as all Dylan's music is. I've seen Dylan live only twice, and he is so awesome in concert.
This CD, which includes live material from the famed Rolling Thunder Revue from 1975 is proof that Dylan rocked as much in the 70's as he did in the 60's (and continues to today).

But as the former owner of Roosevelt Music, publisher of popular, rhythm and blues and rock and roll songs, Fein has a good feel for the industry and an ear for talent.
At that time there were no white musicians in the States who could play race music (a pre-enlightenment term for r&b) with any sense of conviction or authenticity.
If Fein's heart hadn't faltered at the crucial moment, we might be still dancing to the music of the Oxford Four, the group which had distinguished themselves by their music and by their chemical abstinence.
