Is "Knives" on there? Oh well I guess I'll find out when I hear it....I actually don't want to make circ. illegal, I just want to end it. Thanx, Sam!
"Knives" is on the album? Are you sure? Thanx!
Birdland es verdaremente un lugar unico, encuanto a su atmosfera que siempre de sus principios a sido tan amigable, intima y comunitaria, como a los actos musicales de alto caliber que atrae siempre, en el Jazz es escepcional y ahora en su nueva localidad musica variada tambien, como por ejemplo la gran y unica ' Ana Tijoux ', artista de Hip Hop con un toque unico y especial a ella, directo de Chile! En realidad un concierto de no perderse, no solo para los Chilenos, pero para cualquier Latino americano y personas que les interesen el buen Hip Hop con un toque sudamericano que pica... El Octubre 14 ANA TIJOUX en Birdland! :))
The new Birdland 2.0 incorporates the down-home charm, the wonderful eccentricities, and the community feel of its former Berkeley location with ceiling height, a nice dance floor and a beautiful renovation job on its new digs. Now one of the best party scenes ever has evolved into a space where more peo0ple can see really great music and feel really good about it!
been following this place since i herd about it from david Byrd at savannah jazz. i will certainly be a fixture there and help bring some good juju and good percussion.
ill spread the word
The bird has landed on 43rd and MLk! Super excited that its finally happening and legit. It took a lot of hard work so cheers to Birdman and everyone who made it happen.
Michael's quest is a worthy one - there's a motherlode of terrific local musicians and a scarcity of venues, and Michael's been wonderfully open about presenting a wide range of us. Here's to many years of great live *local* music!
It's taken off already!!! We love Birdland!!!!!
Thanks for noting my miscalculation about 38 years. On the "first Bay Area punk record" point, I should have clarified it and wrote "first Bay Area punk album." I wrote "arguably," because Psychotic Pineapple's album is earlier, though perhaps not "punk."
It's stated that he joined Chrome "more than forty years ago." Yet if he joined after 1976's "The Visitation," that was 38 years back.
Also, it's claimed that the DKs' debut LP of 1980 was "arguably the first Bay Area punk record." This ignores and slights the 1976 single by Crime, the 1977 EP by The Avengers, the 1978 EP by The Readymades, etc.
One of their featured artists, Some of All Parts!

FIRE FROM THE UNDERGROUND
Gender discrimination has no place in jazz.....It doesn't matter if you are a girl or a guy, ..What matters is can you play? Can you swing? This would be like saying there is 30 % blacks and 70 % whites...or 57 % are italian american, while only 23 % are German american...Jazz belongs to all races, all color and and all genders...It is 2014, it's so sad we are even talking about this....
Love the statement: "We're capturing a certain moment of time in Oakland," said Tavella. "We were having trouble confining it to a certain sound, since there is so much good music here." Ah, just like our amazing denizens. Spicy variety!

Ellen Right on sis and so what if that dates me . I have been an instrumentalist, keys and percussion for some 50 years and hae always been aggravated by the disparity with women in the biz unless you are a vocalist. You might even remember me from NYC anyway congrats on really picking up the struggle for fairness and making space and opportunities for the youjnger ones so they can imagine their place on the stage and work toward it.
Excellent raising of consciousness around the issue of the lack of opportunities for women's music to be heard, Ellen Seeling. You are to be applauded and we will continue to support your efforts by fulfilling our mission to promote women musicians, globally, at http://www.wijsf.org
The Oakland Mind is a great group of unique individuals with a positive message to keep hip hop and art alive!
