There is something ominously similar between Amy Winehouse and Janis Joplin, as she struggles with the harsh lights of celebrity.  But on another note it seems that Sharon Jones is a little miffed by all this attention Amy's been getting, feeling that Winehouse "jacked her sound,"

Here's a soundbite,

I'm no marketing guru, but maybe a Sharon Jones & Amy Winehouse tour backed by the Dap Kings could help with getting Ms. Jones some exposure and Ms. Winehouse some favorable headlines. "Amy avoids re-hab! Battle of the Jacked-Sound World Tour commences!"

Maybe now that Sharon Jones has drawn more attention to herself, her sales will get a boost.  I first heard Jones on KEXP iin Seattle, but I didn't make the connect until I read that article.  I can understand her gripes, but there is nothing new about funk, and with it being oh so cool again, Winehouse is not the only one "jacking" the sound.  Jones may have beaten Winehouse to the punch, but that's about it.

Am just back from a beautiful and most satisfying day in Golden Gate Park at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, had to leave before finale with Doc Watson & group & Emmylou Harris but after Earl Scruggs played quite an extensive set ending with "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" (a good departure point, I thought).   

Missed a group we have enjoyed in times past, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, who played yesterday (friends who saw/heard them yesterday said they're branching out into jazz).  The new-to-me local group of today that I'll be sure to look up: Hot Buttered Rum, whose set I only heard part of, but had quite a variety, including a bluegrass version of a Paul Simon song that some cannabis-befogged folks near me took a while to recognize, a wonderful song about being a new kind of man ("Be kind" began each line), and some fine a capella harmony on their final song.

This was the 6th of these events and I'm sorry to miss the first five but I'll certainly do my best go back next year.

Fleck and the Flecktones have been jazz oriented for quite some time. He is still bluegrassy in other venues.

Speaking more of the Flecktones, or atleast a part of them, Victor Wooten will be in Lithuania this month,

Looking forward to it.  There seem to be a lot of Wootens.

The Spice Girls' Secret

I would think the Pussycat Dolls would go the same route, since they like to dress in lingerie as well.
