AN UPRIGHT CITIZEN OF THE ORCHESTRA

I have always been thrilled by the work of players like Joe B Mauldin, and now, in a slightly different way I will always be thrilled by a new name to me, with the sense of fun whilst still retaining a reverence for the music and his instrument, as held by Mauildin..  So tomorrow Sidetracks and Detours will introduce readers to a great double bass player who has recently joined with an excellent exponent on the timple, and a world class guitarist, both well´loved around the Spanish peninsular and its islands, to record a wonderful new album. Check out tomorrow to find his identity here at Sidetracks And Detours.

being GUIDED BY VOICES

I don't see it as a science because songs come very naturally to me, but I guess it could be. Sometimes I take a lot of time structuring a song and sometimes they feel pretty autobiographical. Sometimes a song can be somewhat of a study on a topic I'm interested in.

MANCHESTER BOOKED UP

In her memoir,  Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?, Jeanette Winterson locates the city of her birth with a laser-guided accuracy: “Manchester is in the south of the north of England,” she writes. “Its spirit has a contrariness … at once untamed and unmetropolitan; yet at the same time, connected and worldly.”
