Tribute to Charlie Haden

in News Articles National News Posted by Joanne Kee
RIP Charlie Haden Haden viewed jazz as the “music of rebellion,” and felt it was his responsibility and mission to challenge the world through music, and through artistic risks that expressed his own individual artistic vision.

Art is worth less in the age of streaming

in News Articles National News Posted by Joanne Kee
Let’s be clear: from Spotify to Pandora, streamed music is killing downloads, and that’s bad for artists and music lovers. The opposition between art and commerce has been a defining feature of the history of pop music. The countercultural rebellion of the 1960s, to take perhaps the most poignant illustration, was one fully permeated by romantic ideology, by a faith in the possibility of authentic art. The Beatles, the Stones, Dylan and The… Read more

in CD Reviews South Australia Posted by Joanne Kee
Of all the novel names for a band—and, let’s face it, there are plenty of ‘em—Adelaide’s jazz trio, yeahyeahabsolutelynoway!, surely has to top the lot. But that’s not all that’s oval or unusual about the group: it also has a very unconventional makeup, in that it features two guitarists (James Brown and Sam Cagney) and a drummer (Stephen Neville). Their self-confessed shtick is seventies fusion and yet there’s something very now, very present… Read more

Music Changes the Way You Think

Different music encourages different frames of mind Jun 24, 2014 |By Daniel A. Yudkin and Yaacov Trope Hum the first two notes of “The Simpsons” theme song. (If you’re not a Simpsons fan, “Maria” from West Side Story will also do.) The musical interval you’re hearing—the pitch gap between the notes—is known as a “tritone,” and it’s commonly recognized in music theory as one of the most dissonant intervals, so much so that composers and theorists… Read more
