Music Monday: Birthday

Duke Ellington at the 1956 Newport Jazz Festival
song: A Train
Starting at 1:25, this song absolutely rocks. Great album.

Herbie Hancock: Empyrean Isles
My affection for Cantaloupe is already documented, but the whole album is very fine.

The Drums (eponymous album)
Fun, light stuff.

Big Boi: Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty
I don't listen to much rap, but Big Boi gets it done.

Music Monday: Kid British

These guys are fun. When I saw and heard them, I immediately thought of The Specials in the 80's, then saw a video in which The Specials came on stage with Kid British and said they thought the same thing.

Web Stuff Friday: Sargent Mashup

Guy Sargent is an amazing photographer.
Mashup Breakdown is just wonderful. The aforementioned B-Sizzle let me know that Girl Talk has a new album out. It rocks. When I checked out Girl Talk's Twitter feed (@therealgirltalk), I was introduced to this site that shows the mashup visually.
