The Hard Life...CHET BAKER Lived All That Drug Jazz

by Sara Björk cc
BARTLETT loves all types of music...and, JAZZ has always been, as Steve says.." Freeing and rewarding."
So, I [Jan] watch out for stories and cool things online 'bout Jazz for Steve. Today, I listened to CHET BAKER...a jazz trumpeter and vocalist from the '50's. That I've listened to before AND, have really enjoyed his 'smooth, quiet, comforting and soothing voice and style'..'.ahhh, it just let's me relax and unwind'...so, I started to research and investigate his life for a post....BOY! was I in for a surprise...his life was full of drugs, prison and violence...NOT anything like that 'soft comforting sound' that I heard on his videos.
I read that Baker had a "well-pupilicized drug habit"...he started using heroin in the 50's  and remained addicted to the drug the remainder of his life. He spent time in prison, was so violently beat up, his face smashed in, when trying to buy drugs in San Francisco after a gig, that he couldn't play his trumpet- and doctors thought he'd never play it again and he needed the money that he earned from his music to support this addiction, and, yes,.. when they found his body on May 13th, 1988 in Amsterdam on the ground below his second story Hotel room, heroin and cocaine were found in his body too....'BUT, but...wait.... listen to his soft and unique voice..so gentle and soft....so relaxing and soothing'. ...I had to pause and think...'why?   would anyone choose that?...drugs had made Baker's life very sad, lonely, scary and painful...and still this man gave us all so very much...what a giving man...thanks Chet. Jan

I found this video on YOUTUBE, called The Best of Chet Baker, [thanks Jazz n' Blues Experience]

Antique Audio Recording of 'You Know Who' At SMITHSONIAN

by TimWilson cc
This was very interesting....today, I learned something new when I found this post about ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL at TECHLAND.TIME....NO, It's NOT about the telephone, after all, we ALL know that Bell invented the telephone, boring...guess again..O.K?...O.K., O.K. give up? Well, Alexander Graham Bell took THOMAS EDISON's first recording device, with played recordings that used tinfoil covered cardboard cylinders to record the sound...and used wax-covered cardboard or discs...and, made it even better and stronger than Edison's....BUT, even more exciting to the guys at THE SMITHSONIAN , who discovered one of these first recordings with yes,.. Bell's voice on it, dated 1885. It had his initials on it too. WAS...Ready?.. They tested this stuff with some very scientific equipment and verified it was Bell's voice alright, he was saying "Hear My Voice--Alexander Graham Bell"...O.K., now we all know that Bell, as well as Edison were both very important in what is used today to record all the music we enjoy everyday. Thank you. Jan

Music, Music Everywhere...And, Not A Drop To Drink, But, 'Orphan Milk'

Steve Bartlett by Jan Rose-Bartlett cc
Well, today I thought I'd let everyone know...what music stuff Steve's up to for this week. There's lots of fun rehearsing most every day, along with all our daily farm things. Those farm related things can be fun and rewarding too, like raising an orphaned lamb inside the house, and learning to make home-made 'formula' that's just right for a lamb...you know sheep don't do well on cow's milk and goat milk they just don't like.., and I understand THAT completely. [ of course, Jan]. Click HERE for my own lamb milk replacement recipe, that tastes GOOD and that our little girl lamb loved and did very well on too.
Now, for the music....Steve's rehearsing right now...Yeah....I love it. He has a rehearsal with his long time music buddy MIKE KARNES/guitar tomorrow in Olympia, WA. AND, yes ANDRE that atomic clock drummer will be there too. Most of the tunes listed below are for that get-together tomorrow.
O.K...now, BARTLETT's also been playing in THE MOJO BLUES or GROOVE BAND...they've been doing lots of ETTA JAMES, JOE COCKER and some BB KING, BEN E. KING and STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN too. Members of that band are: Of couse, BARTLETT ON BASS, 'Mojo' or MARY JO TRYHOLM/vocals and RICHARD MOLINA/guitar with HARRY LOGAN/drums.
Steve's jamming tonight with STEPHEN K. HICKS/drums, our neighbor and owner of HOBBY STREET STUDIOS. A amazing banjo guy named BLAIR LUNDSTEDT will be there, that my Steve's played with before, and DON SUNN/guitar/vocals...it should be a great night.
Oh..yea...KENNY WILLIAMSON/drums called this week. It was great to hear from him...he's doing well at 70 years old. 
That's all for today.  Jan

Bring your ax...it's a jam, that's all I know 'bout it.

O.K?...'So, Be There, or Be Square' is what I always use to say, when I was a really cool hippie. See you there tonight....I don't know what time it starts either...what? 'No, Steve didn't say but, he's heading to Seattle 'round 5:30ish, from Tacoma with the rest of the band, he did say it would be over 'round 11 pm...Richard;s driving them all...Thanks Richard.

'MARIA, MARIA' Falling In Love In East L.A. With Guitar By CARLOS SANTANA

 by MojoBaer cc
CARLOS SANTANA and HERE is an amazing guitarist to me [Jan]...he makes that guitar sing just every time I've heard him play, since the '60's, I guess...so, today was absolutely no different...EXCELLENCE in music, that's all...WOW. AND, how come with some music and artists..lotsa old memories just come flooding back? Well, they did.
I'm not sure when I first heard him [Carlos Santana]...at WOODSTOCK in '69? Perhaps...I do remember, that in 1971 with my marriage... to ERNESTO AGUSTIN BARELA-LOVATO, we both loved CARLOS SANTANA, 'Ernie' was always collecting his recordings, and that music was a big part of our lives, we took it everywhere with us...Santana being one of our hispanic 'brothers' and all, and he became one of our favorite musicians. That maybe why I feel connected to him. Santana seems just like family to me.
Some of Santana's tunes were in Spanish and other's in English...or a combination of both...cool...kinda like our new family... the mixing Ernie's Hispanic culture, with the northern Anglo-American ideas of my family. I loved the 'new' that was created [Span-glish]....ALL races combining and living together as one. 'Gracias  Ernesto y Carlos'. Juana Rosa
My or our daughter's story about Ernie's death from AGENT ORANGE HERE with music from the Vietnam War. Ernie was in VIETNAM in 1967 and 1969, that's where he was exposed to Agent Orange.
AND, today...my wonderful hubby BARTLETT ON BASS enjoys these same songs and performs Carlos Santana tunes ALL the time, they're requested over and over at gigs...very popular today, just like 30-40 years ago.
I'm posting a tune that we [Ernie, Steve and me Jan-Juana] all would enjoy...from Thanousay Khamphoune, 'MARIA, MARIA' with lyrics. This is what the page says:Uploaded on Apr 25, 2009
the lyrics of the coolest song ever played by carlos santana.". More HERE about this grammy award winning  song.

MAN IN THE MOON or What? What Did The Moon Look Like In The 1800's?

King of the Ants*'s cc

I really enjoy checking in with GIZMODO.COM every so often to see what I can find... I'd say, Gizmodo has mostly 'different' stories and videos....AND, I always find something new and interesting. Check them out. O.K?
So, this morning, I click on their site and found this story about the really weird ideas folks had in 1836 about our moon. Wow. 'We've come along way, baby'. Not only did they believe in some weird life on the moon in the 1800's, but really strange moon people, animals and other stuff too. ['Wonder what the folks in 300 years from now will think of us?'...bet, there'll be lots of our mysteries fully understood. Cool. Jan].
Here's some examples of ideas from 1836, that came from some old colored, well, hand-tinted anyway, lithographs from the SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTE's Image Collection:
So, the folks way back in 1836 not only thought 'astronomers' had already been to the moon in a ship "supported by hydrogen balloons", but that they had already met moon-people, and that moon life was made up of 
"hairy men with wings" and "naked insect women",.... some "unicorns". And more..., "batmen", "moon bison" and "moon maidens"...go HERE to read the whole story.
This story reminded me, once again, that it's very cool to have an 'open mind' BUT, 'not so open that my brains fall out'...So, I'll BE REAL. That's what I [Jan] learned. Thanks for reading my stuff. Jan

Kenny's been 'round for a long time, the '60's anyway, and has sold millions of great recordings...GOOD IDEA. And, Roger's is really happy 'bout it too, he wants to share this special recognition...this is what he said. ""so I can share it with my boys. I think it's an important thing for them to know I worked hard"...yep, he's always worked hard and I've really enjoyed his tunes.

Making An Electric Guitar Outta An Ordinary Garden Shovel

by Tobyotter cc
O.K.....It's Springtime, we're farmers, and our fingers are just itching to get out there in that garden and play in the dirt. BUT, wait a minute...what about all the music and rehearsing and stuff? Well, no worry, or guilt... I found just the video, it has the answer....See, these guys take an ordinary shovel, and make it into a cool guitar, bet they can make a bass too...WOW! Do both at once, plant your garden and play a tune Can't wait til Steve gets back from mowing the lawn, feeding the sheep, lambs, chickens and rabbits, fixing fence posts, getting slugs outta the garden and saving our newly planted kale and sees this...why waste any time?..BARTLETT ON BASS can now rehearse his bass at the very same time as doing everything else...Yeah. Won't he be glad that I saw this...yep, I'm always here to help. There's no need to thank me Sweetheart.

Watch---A 6 Year Old Autistic Musical Genius...'Yes...We CAN All Do Anything We Put Our Mind To'

by Fifth World Art cc
When I saw this wonderful video this morning on FACEBOOK, shared by my friend Sheryl Clark/sax, I was reminded once again that humans are just plain awesome, AND, to never waste time feeling 'sorry' for myself again! We CAN ALL do amazing things and do anything we put our genius minds to. We just have to believe in ourselves, a little...that's all..a piece of cake. So, no one gave most of us and me too permission to be fantastic, so, I now give it to myself.
Yes, I do things slower than most of you...and perhaps different than you do...BUT, I can do them, and it's getting better all the time, I'll be as good as new very soon....Just look at Ethan, such an inspiration.
So, I really enjoyed this video from sitehost, called ETHAN A 6 YEAR OLD WITH AUTISM, PLAYS PIANO MAN WITH BILLY JOEL This what it says on this page: " Published on Apr 4, 2013
My Son coby has Autism, and its Videos like these that remind you how smart and tallented our children really are!! Please share this video."  Enjoy ETHAN WALMARK like I did. Jan

SEA LION Keeps The Best Beat, or NOT Just 'Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay'

by Tony Fischer Photography cc
I just remembered that old OTIS REDDING tune, you know..ah, from AmericanAirlinesRule, thanks 'Sitting At The Dock Of The Bay' 1967 [by Otis Redding and Steve Cropper, released by STAR RECORDS in 1968] after seeing this SEA LION do her thing at the UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, at SANTA CRUZ. This sea lion's name is RONAN. She was taught to keep the beat, and once she understood what everybody wanted she just took off...and now gets lots gigs just everywhere....just kidding about the gigs. Ronan does do a good job keeping the beat, just listen...nice dancing too. Hope she's not working for peanuts...ah, but, fish and lots of it. That's my girl, Ronan. Jan
Found this video on YOUTUBE, from PinnipedLab, called BEAT KEEPING IN A CALIFORNIA SEA LION, RONAN. This is more of what it says on the video page..."Published on Mar 31, 2013 One of our resident sea lions, Ronan, is the first non-human mammal shown able to find and keep the beat with musical stimuli. This challenges earlier evidence from humans and parrots suggesting that complex vocal mimicry is a necessary precondition for flexible rhythmic entrainment."
