These Days: Tuesday, January 31st, 2017

Happy Birthday Philip Glass, War Is Over If You Want It: His minimalist, repetitive, classical compositions is the sine qua non of modern classical music which means he was embraced and hard by art rockers of the 1970s. Now how about this piece of information? “Apart from his music career, Glass had a moving company with his cousin, the sculptor Jene Highstein, and also worked as a plumber and cab driver (during 1973 to 1978)” Art is art and art isn’t money. It is wonderful having the great composer being celebrated wide and far. If you are in the mood to celebrate, hie thee to the Tibet House gig at Carnegie Hall on March 16th, it’ll be seconding as a birthday celebration for the big guy.

Oldies: Also, look at the end of this post for the 80 songs by Glass off Spotify.

Newies: It passed me by earlier this week but the new Bell Biv Devoe single “I’m Betta” is a pretty terrific reminded of how it used to be done (Grade: B). Meanwhile, I am steadying myself for the end of the month round up…. for what it’s worth.

Concerts: Speaking of which, after a quiet January, February is lining up nicely: True Groove Allstars, Maria Taylor, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jennifer Lopez, Cher, Elton John, Billy Joel, Ariana Grande, all topped off with Sondheim’s “Sunday In The Park With George”.

The Trump Presidency: nobody could have got away with not allowing people with visas in mid flight not into the country, but otherwise Trump could have added some sugar and banned the seven countries for three months and syria indefinitely, if he stopped barking orders at everyone and acting like the leader of the third reich, while he did it. Lest we forget, Obama didn’t allow US partners Iraqi to get visas for SIX MONTHS and no one even noticed. I repeat, style or substance?
