A compendium of musings on music and this business we call show

A new Home

Home v2020. Why are we talking about another ancient record? What does this have to do with the new stuff? Gentle Giant. Tchaikovsky. Odd time signatures that don’t sound odd. Sloshy things. Glenn Miller Disease. Boxing the compass.

Roger CortonWhy are we talking about Home? New release? Didn’t we head down memory lane last time?

Home v2020

JCHAs we discussed last time ya gotta go back to go forward.

RCThat isn’t what we talked about at all.

JCHI wouldn’t know. You know I never listen to me.

RCMe either (laughs). But seriously, why do a new CD? It ain’t for the money.

JCHOh, I dunno. It’ll make maybe one mortgage payment. It’s a much better mix now. And then there’s the notion that I drifted.

RCOK, a lot to unpack there. Money first.

JCHAlways. Of course, I do versioning.. as with software. I get better at […]

Beautiful Sounds Gets A New Cover

Beautiful Sounds finally gets a beautiful cover. Why are we talking about a twelve year old record? What does this have to do with the new stuff? Mixing for the era. Over-romanticizing old gear. Mary Poppins. Explosive. EDM. Sensitive New-Age Guy.

Roger CortonA new cover for Beautiful Sounds? New release? Whassuuuuuuup?

Beautiful Sounds V2020

JCHAs we discussed

Beautiful Sounds, For Dancers Only

Beautiful Sounds to be choreographed. Just don’t call it ballet. Tarkus vs. Spiny Norman. Gates Of Delirium or just another day with the Fam. Autobiography vs. Art School Slippermen. Coronavirus is not World War Z. When will the shit really hit the fan? Jimmie Luncerford: For Dancers Only

Roger CortonSo what’s this? you’re doing a ballet from Beautiful Sounds?

Beautiful Sounds V2020

JCHDance music.

RCThe fans always said it was repetitious. (laughs)

JCHOuch. Yeah, I remember it well. That was the beginning of the “Where’s the shredding?” whining. (laughs)

RCWell, you have to admit that it was a change of direction. So what’s this about a ‘ballet’?

JCHQuit being annoying.

RCAre we talking tutus? Or is this more Billy Ray line dancing? (laughs)

JCHMan, that’s a whole lot o’ mullet, buddy. So I get an email […]

We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Earplugs

A new Angry Love Song! So Much To Justify. The Mood Ring returns. Rainbow Randolph. Creativity comes in all sizes. Not repeating yourself. Snatch. You’ll have to speak louder than that. Ear plugs. New ‘Rawk’. Reference mixes for the deaf. Velvet Revolver. Slither. Outrageous French accents. Terry Jones and the Mouse Organ (RIP). Hearing loss: it can even strike classical players! Blame those really loud brass players. And Wagner.

RCWow. More new music.

So Much To Justify

JCHYep. Whaddaya think?

RCWell, if I use the all knowing Mood Ring, it’s a classic ‘Angry Love Song’.

JCHTouché Actually, I was thinking just that when I was working on it. And then it hit me? I DON’T CARE ANYMORE! Which is a big step for me. (laughs)

RCBig step? How so?

JCHWell, in the past, believe it or not I’ve always tried really, really, really, really, really, really…


JCHReally. […]

Do I Look Like A Guy With A Plan?

Weeeeeeee’re BACK! Just in time for the holidays. New music is in the works! Politics. Die Hard and other McTiernan movies for the holidays. Eno. Embracing the chaos. I drink your milkshake. Joker.

RCIt really has been a long time.

JCHIt sure has. How ya been, old friend.

RCGetting older. Things are great. How about -you-?

JCHIt’s been banana pants here.


JCHPolitically. You know I ran for office, right?

RCI did know that. And the word on the street…

JCHWhich always reminds me of, like, Baretta or some other seventies cop show…

RCOf course. The word on the street, Huggy

JCHNice. Wrong show…

RC…Is that you won.

JCHI did win, Starsky. By a hundred and twenty votes.


JCHI feel a real mandate. NOT. (laughs)

RCWell, I could talk about politics and men’s fashions all day, but work must intrude.

JCHOh man, it would […]
