A Fine Evening with Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers….

Dad and Andrew  Enjoy the Music of Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers
Dad and Andrew yes!

So you know your old when you hear your son say. “Wow, I can’t believe that I’ve been listening to that album for 20 years”! As your thoughts race towards – “Hey wait until you can say I  can’t believe I’ve been listening to those guys for 50 years!” Anyway, that’s what my son Andrew said, as we were leaving the World Cafe Live in Philly last night. We had just seen Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers together for the third time! The tickers were a birthday gift from my son.

Exploring the Music of Carlos Santana

 Carlos Santana – Guitar – Born July 20, 1947

There are many distinctive guitarist, but for me there is none that’s more distinctive than the artist who celebrates his 68th birthday today, Carlos Santana.Carlos was born on July 20,1947, at Autlán de Navarro, Jalisco, Mexico.  I will have to admit that after Abraxas there were not many of Carlos’ album’s in my library until 2012’s release Shape Shifter..oh, there was The Santana Brothers, which by the way is a pretty good album But that doesn’t mean that I haven’t enjoyed his music through the years. I liked Supernatural and other albums that I heard on the radio!

Boz Scaggs – Solo and Steve Miller Band – June 8, 1944

Today Boz Scaggs celebrates his 71st birthday and for more than 45 of those years his music has been part of my music library!! I first listened to  Boz, when he was a member of his prep-school and college friend, Steve Miller’s Band, on Steve’s second album Sailor!  Boz contributed several songs and some lead vocals on that album.Back in March of this year, Boz released a new album A Fool to Care. Last week the album was number 20 on the Roots Music Report’s Blues Chart I haven’t had a chance to listen to the full album yet, since only the title track had been released on Spotify. Actually, I just checked and the whole album was released on June 2nd!! So I will try to listen to the album on the way home tonight.
