  • Downbeat review
    Looking For The Answers Downbeat Review - Aimee Nolte’s voice is beautiful, sonorous and reflective on her latest album Looking For The Answers, The singer arranged and produced every track on the album, lending a consistent aesthetic and laid-back vibe to most of the cuts here. What separates Nolte from other vocalists and composers is the poetry and storytelling quality of her compositions, with lyrics reminescent of Joni Mitchell - just minus Mitchell playfulness. “Save Me One Last Time” speaks to the bandleadeader’s seriousness as a lyricists when the theme of lost love is addressed: “If I keep on falling, I’ll be lost forever/ Save me one last time.” [ Read the full review here ]

Ear Training With One Of The World's Best Improvisers

Ear Training With One Of The World's Best Improvisers

Rosana Eckert - Principal Lecturer of Vocal Jazz at the University of Northern Texas, is one of the best improvisers and educators I know of.

Her ability to do this is matched only by a handful of people, in my opinion.

Trends In Music That Died Forever

Looking primarily at the strange music trends from the 1950s, we discuss the novelty song in its many forms - and how Mitch Miller (who helped launch the careers of Frank Sinatra, Rosemary Clooney, Doris Day and more) tried to steer Columbia Records away from the Rock n Roll craze. It'll be a walk down memory lane for many of you as we look at the influence of Lawrence Welk, Disney, Perry Como, Brian Hyland, Peggy Lee and many more greats from music history.
