Photo by kait jarbeau is in love with you cc 
Well, look what I just found online...that ol' rascal, you know 'Great Balls of Fire' JERRY LEE LEWIS,76, just never slows down. What you up to now JER?   Oh, on March 9th, you got married for the 7th time down in Natchez, did you AND to some kinda relative again too. WOW...Cool Jer...Isn't that against some kinda law or something?...huh?
Now, who is this gal anyway?...Let's see, you say she's your care-giver...well, of course, EVERY wife is a CARE-GIVER, isn't she?, what else is new?
OK... folks, this is where you MUST pay close, my suggestion is to go get a cold splash of water for your face and have some to drink too, Ah...ready? OK, let's try and figure this out....
CNN reports that JERRY LEE LEWIS married a Judith Brown....the ex-wife of a second cousin, Rusty Brown. And, Rusty is brother of Myra Gale Brown..."the minor cousin once removed that Jerry married in 1957, that raised some major eye brows way back when....Oh, now I understand....never mind, have a great day.

The Day Is Always Brighter With SUNNY LOUDIN

OK...Yesterday, we heard from Steve's ol' music buddy, MIKE KARNES/guitar/bass instructor. Steve and Mike have known each other just forever, that's all. Well, they're old school friends and encouraged each other to stay in music way back when. Mike surprised Steve with a gift....a really cool bass guitar about a year ago. See HERE for my report. My Steve had worn a big hole in his old one from all that pickin' and slappin' he does when he does his famous bass solos. 
Every so often, they love to get together, relax and jam on Sundays in Olympia, WA. at Loraine's YENNY MUSIC studios on the west side of town. Cool.
Well yesterday, Mike had some neat ideas for the next jam...he had contacted their friend, SUNNY LOUDIN/vocals [photo from her my space site here] from up north....she wanted to get together  and jam too....WOW!   That'll be lots of fun. So, they're all getting together and bringing a challenging new tune each for the next get-together. Stay tuned for more. T. Jan

IDA COX..'Wild Women Don't Get The Blues' 1924

CARA CLARKE, Photo + Flyer by me [Jan]
IDA COX was an awesome black blues singer that reached her peak in the 1920s, performing in extraganza stage shows in the1920s and 30s. Her audience were mostly Southern ladies, that loved her wit and urban blues style, making her very successful and popular.
She was born in Georgia in 1896 and died in 1967 in Tennessee.
I first heard of IDA COX, when my STEVE BARTLETT ON BASS played in the band BE HEAR, which featured the amazing CARA CLARKE-POWERS doing the blues vocals. STEFAN ABUAN was the guitarist, KEVIN CHRISTENSEN joined later on drums. Cara kindly asked me to join this band, and I happily played the computer keyboard for awhile. SMILE.....until I realized, it was really a lot of hard work, took a lot of my time AND I was expected  to do it all for FREE, not like the other band members, who all got paid plus food/drinks etc. at all the gigs. I sadly quit in a big huff DARN IT Anyway, and sure did miss Cara, we had become great friends. She is not in the area any more as far as I know. Love you Cara Clarke, go hear her if you have a chance, she's awesome'll enjoy yourself.. Her family's in Chicago...perhaps she's over there. :-[   I know, I know Cara....'Wild Woman Don't Get The we Cara? ...Miss you.' Jan
Cara sang 'Wild Woman Don't Get The Blues' by IDA COX written in 1924. I found a video of this song of COX's, with some cool blues history too on YOUTUBE and will post it below.

THOSE BIG FAT LIES, or...'.Liar, Liar...Pants On Fire'

Photo  by Mike Licht. cc
You all know, I love music and see musicians work so hard, love music, are very talented and creative, and for most their pay is way below what all the rest of us, in a way I understand....I really do.... their need to be seen as successful and recognized. After all, they have all really earned that recognition, haven't they? BUT, sometimes we've all seen too much M-TV, I guess.  
This all started in 2006, when I was really amazed and stunned when I started reporting on live music, to find, that some gigs are just BIG FAT LIES,... lies....What?? Yep. It's amazing, but true.
I started to wake up in 2006...when Steve and I went to a fine local Club one night, to enjoy one of Steve's then band members, who told us that he was performing with another wonderful band that evening. A second band member was gonna meet us there and arrived a little later.
 I was really looking forward to this.waited expecting a great show and that wonderful band came on, played for a few sets, and when they began to pack up to leave....I wondered, where was our friend? I encourage my Steve to go up...up onstage to ask what had happened? I had enjoyed the evening so much and wanted to report about the great music the next day online. I had pictures and everything. 
They did NOT even know our friend's name....What?  I was shocked!
The next day, when we asked that same band member what had happened?...he just said nothing...and the next month reported another gig with that very same band that didn't even know him. He had forgotten it all  by then, but, I didn't...and never paid much attention to him after that. He still contacts us every so often, telling us of his awesome, fantastic gigs...that pay thousands and have hundreds in attendance. Oh, what else is new?
SO, All the gigs I report on.... I've checked out....THEY'RE really happening, with real musicians and at real Clubs that are open for business, or I say what I haven't been able to confirm. You guys can really trust what I've reported here on BARTLETT ON BASS. 'Cause it's SAD to say...this does really happen once in awhile, most musicians, bands and club owners are honest, hard-working beautiful, talented folks, that we can all trust and count on. 
 I know...To go out expecting to hear some great live music from a performer you've been longing to see and hear, and it's a BIG FAT lie, is disappointing to say the least. I check everything out often AND, change things as needed.
Thanks, Is something burning? Is it getting HOT in here, or is it just me? SMILE, T.Jan
