Dis beat was bubblegum, so I had to chew it

A lesson in jazz:
Art Tatum was an American Jazz pianist that began his career as a musician at the age of three. A child prodigy with perfect pitch, Tatum was able to pick out rhythms off radios, records, and church hymns and convert them into innovative sound on the piano. Tatum was also nearly blind from childhood due to disputed complications involving cataracts. Known as one of the best jazz pianists of all time, Tatum sweeps his hands along the piano, titillating listeners with swinging jazz improv and elaborate cadenzas. Hints of later forms of jazz peek through numerous works of Tatum's, suggesting ingenious musical foresight during the era in which he performed. Sit back and enjoy.

You wanted a hit?

You think you know everything about everything, but don't know a damn thing.

Local Natives

Here's a good band recommended by Sarah for those of you who may be looking for some new acoustic rock/pop

Do D.A.T.
This is a new artist I had never heard of before that Ian introduced me to-- I think he's a pretty good rapper. If you like the stuff on his myspace I can send you his most recent album. I can't find any links to it on youtube though.

thanks Stephan. Muse. Pretty solid concert.

Aparna's suggestion, so good.

Delhi to Dublin. After watching some of their youtube videos it looks like this band really gets the crowd going-- if they come to your town I highly suggest you go see them.
