  • You ain't kidding. Esperanza Spalding is the real deal. Student at Berklee College of Music when she was eighteen, professor there at nineteen.

    • The Herbie hancock is a little over my head. That kind of music feels like it's for other musicians more than the average listener. The sting cut is nice. I like that a lot.

      My Good friend Jon Van Wie went to berklee. He told me that he met Steve Vai when he was there while standing on the same line to sign up for some studio time for a class. He said Vai had put it all on paper as well as be able to play like crazy... Jon left us some years ago due to bone cancer. He was a great player himself... Missed by all who knew him...

      the fall line is your friend.... resistance is futile

      • Anybody who can get into Berklee... dayumn!

        I knew some van Wie's growing up. Not the most common name but probably more in upstate New York than anywhere else in the US. I remember a Bob van Wie. My home town was Amsterdam, surrounded by dozens of other towns with Dutch names.

        • I knew some Van Wies in the Albany area as well. Dairy farmers out in Voorheesville (is that Dutch enough for ya'?). Gail Van Wie was a sweet heart who worked as a banquet waitress at the Italian American Community Center on Washington Avenue Extension.

          • What does the "Van" stand for in these freakydeaky Dutch names?

            I once crossed paths with a Vanderloop but never thought to ask.

                The google machine tells me it means "from". But I think it more likely that it refers to a vehicle down by the river.

                • Ah yes, that makes perfect sense.

                  So if this guy happened to be Dutch and resided in such a vehicle he would be known as....

                  Van van Van down by the river.

His version of Jerry Jeff's, "Mr Bojangles" is widely considered the best version of that song ever done. He adds some funny narration to it too...

                        Anyway, here's New lee,... but it's not a live cut.



                        One more piece of cardboard pie!!!
                        I can't find any of the David Bromberg albums, I had on LP. (ie records) Not available on CDs.
                        Sad.

                          Dang. Another smooth amazing tune.

                          And her art dept really knows how to push the buttons.

                            • My college roommate played Wanted Dead or Alive! all the time. I loved it almost as much as he did. What a master of Americana Bromberg is. A national treasure who few people outside of a particular cohort know.

                              • Did a morning paddle through the St Regis Canoe area several decades ago and pulled out at Paul Smith's for a festival that featured Bromberg, nice combo!
