Got home late after an evening of Cornell Woolrich, watched The
Colbert Report
to wind down, and who should appear? Talk about
Noir....

Johnny Smith has died at the age of 92. A great guitar player, his recording of Moonlight in Vermont was highly influential. He was also the writer of Walk Don't Run, made popular by The Ventures in 1960 and also 1964. Smith was a loving father who quit playing gigs in 1958 when his wife died in childbirth. He moved to Colorado and opened a music store in order to take care of his family. He taught jazz guitar to teens for years and occasionally recorded. He had a gorgeous style, playing chorded melodies, transitioning smoothly from one chord to another by holding one of the notes until after he had switched to the next chord. He said he figured out the technique by watching an organ player do the same thing, and so he translated this to the guitar. He lost the tip of one of his fingers in an airplane accident, and spent a year relearning how to play. According to a bandmate, he would take solos that sounded as if they had been worked out in advance, but that was just not true, he simply had that kind of a brain, one that produced calm, logical and extremely beautiful music that was indeed spontaneous. Here are a few of his songs.

Forgive the redundant headline, this article explains Smith's style and gives a bit of his history.

The Sinatra of the Blues. Along with Ray Charles, my introduction to
a lifelong love of R 'n' B.

Bobby "Blue" Bland died on Sunday at 83. Heaven has turned on its
love light.

One of the best renditions I've heard of the themes from Cinema Paradiso (1990):

Went to the Hideout Block Party, co-sponsored by Onion A.V., this
past weekend. Who we saw:

John Langford
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nr295cfu9Q[/youtube]

The Both (Aimee Mann & Ted Leo)
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HkDbStqJas[/youtube]

The Walkmen
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3qF9p3MPLo[/youtube]

Superchunk
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zk2MnAz7lcM[/youtube]

And, though he wasn't performing, we stood next to Robbie Fulks,
his wife, and their dancing child.

Oh man you lucky dog! what a great lineup and you got to stand next to Robbie Fulks? Sounds wonderful.

That kid onstage for John Langford has some great moves....

I think that is Langford's son.

Robbie plays almost every Monday night, Fall through Spring, at the Hideout, the bar I like to show off to out-of-towners when there's time. Check out its site here, especially the History tab.

Unfortunately, we missed the Friday night performance - the headliners were some Chicago singer named Mavis Staples and a chick-singer who hung out at the Hideout years ago, Neko Case.

It was an Art-Rock kind of Saturday night in Chicago. A couple of us
went to the Empty Bottle, the hipsteriest of the hipster music bars in
Chicago, to see three bands and...yes...once again, I was the oldest
man in the room.

Local music scenesters, Radiant Devices

Then it got really out there with Gagarin (live, maybe, on video)
with host David Thomas (live in the bar)
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vozi5YJg8s8[/youtube]

Then what we went for...the latest iteration of Pere Ubu
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BU-JPUwc0wA[/youtube]

The music made up for the incident at door as we arrived when a young
man said to me, "Excuse me,sir." I almost asked if he wanted to take it
outside.
