The BEATLES?....Well, Almost....ABBEY ROAD,The Musical, Opens Next Year

The Beatles/see photo credit
Well, ya gotta know right up front, that I'm a BIG BEATLE's fan.' Cause, as they say, you never forget your very first love, and they were my introduction into the world of music, and started my interest and love of music way back in 1964...Yes, I guess you can say I was a musical virgin before then....So, when I read this morning that a 'Beatles Musical' bassed on the" ABBEY ROAD recording sessions" was being created, called a 'musical Documentary' re-creating the Beatles careers from 1962 to 1969,  and this is all gonna be ready by April 2016. A live stage production...I was all ears, so to speak, ....WOW. It will open in London at the Royal Albert Hall.
I read this today in THE GUARDIAN, check it out for yourself. O.K?
How can anyone do the Beatles better than the Beatles? I wondered. Guess these guys, who are in charge of this musical, have that all figured out....They are not going to even try to make the actors they choose looks like the real fab four, [how could they anyway? Jan]...they just want the Beatle music to be right on....'O.K., smart, very smart'. Jan
P.S., creative Spelling maybe used in this post, as always....Jan

BARTLETT 'Shop Talk' or What's a D Minor, Major Diminished Played Over An A? Huh?

I know, I know.....'Where have I been, Anyway?'....it's been a few days since
Genius BARTLETT bt JA Rose cc
I've posted online....Oh man, what can I say?...'ah'....[pause]...., I've been around and doing stuff....lotsa stuff. Going here and going there....but, only having my iPad to post with and I'm learning that it's alot easier to post on FACEBOOK [my personal page...Jan] on than it is on BLOGGER with the iPad...my shaky, big fingers and stuff. So, check out 'BARTLETT ON BASS' FACEBOOK, link below right hand side of this page, if I disappear for a few days. O.K? Thanks alot you guys. Jan

O.K.,Now that I said all that, lets get down to business, shall we?
I was listening to my Steve this morning talking 'bout the very cool SASS gig last night at UNCLE THURMs FINGER LICKIN RIBs AND CHICKEN or...as 'I' like to say 'er' spell, UNCLE THURMs SOUL FOOD.... and you know,'just as yummy either way you say it'....Delicious....AND, with lotsa good music spread all over the top too,   how can we lose? Well, we just can't, that's all. Check it out....'specially on Friday nights, that's MY favorite....'cause there's ALWAYS Delicious food AND amazing music together on Fridays.
Oh yeah,...'Where was I'? I was listening to Steve this morning  And, I noticed he was talkin...well funny, a kinda foreign language or something...what was it? What was he trying to say? Here gos, I'll try to re-capture the moment for you... this is what it sounded like to me....' he was playing a D minor major, with a root of A, over an A, you know...see how that sounds?'...well, it's just important if HE knows how that sounds, isn't it?....so, I didn't say a word, just listened to him 'mumble'....AND, it just goes to show that ALL musicians are genius once again. That is all, Jan

WHERE: UNCLE THURMs SOUL FOOD
