Soulsavers - It's Not How Far You Fall It's The Way You Land (2007)

Soulsavers is Mark Lanegan's new musical project. They just released a new album entitled "It's Not How Far You Fall It's The Way You Land". Although for me, I like him more with the upbeat/uptempo stuff. Nevertheless, I just can't count how many times I've played over and over songs like "Through My Sails" (Neil Young's cover) and "Kingdoms of Rain".

They will also touring this fall:
11-27 New York, NY - Gramercy Theater
11-28 Philadelphia, PA - North Star Bar
11-29 Washington, DC - Black Cat
12-01 San Francisco, CA - The Independent
12-02 Los Angeles, CA - Troubador

Grade: B+
+ Full album (streaming) with track by track review!

John Mayer singing "The Eraser"

This one you MUST HEAR. John Mayer sings his new song "Slow Dancing in a Burning Room" (a beautiful love ballad) and at the end he includes a few lines from "The Eraser" by Thom Yorke. AMAZING!

The more you try to erase me
The more, the more
The more that I appear
Oh the more, the more

Jaco Pastorius (1951-1987) - 20 years later...

(Jaco Pastorius performs with the group Weather Report at the 1981 Playboy Jazz Festival in Los Angeles)
What to say about Jaco... A genius on the bass, someone that I admire, that took the electric bass to a different level, not afraid of transceding the 4-string bass limitations. A master of the fretless bass and all the harmonics one can get from that instrument.
+ Check it out this great NPR report with a short biography and a few of his greatest tracks
