We need to have a Woodstock concert on our Southern Border, to show our love for Mexicans, and to raise money to hire lawyers to battle on behalf of our Latino immigrants, etc.

We can get the Chili Peppers, probably...



And a million other bands from Venice, California, and I bet Carlos Santana would play. 

I bet a lot of bands would want to play. The backlash against putting children in cages is not over yet.

It may not feature the latest popular music, but it's always good to know where the retro stuff is when you are feeling nostalgic (or hosting Jazz Age party)--  Cladrite Streaming Radio, featuring the best from the 1920s,'30s and '40s  :

Okay, I might give that a try.

Damn, I missed both of Louis Armstrong's birthdays this year.
I was busy for the Aug 4 one.

It's odd but I've found that most of my favorite songs are discoveries of mine and largely unknown. 

Such as my Trump Admin theme song: Bad News, Bad Times by gospel great Marion Williams.
Or my favorite jazz vocal Ain't No Use by Sarah Vaughan
My favorite Gospel tune: Sail Away by Albertina Walker
Some favorite Soul:
Yesterday is Gone by Jimmy McCracklin
Blues, Tears & Sorrow - John Williams
Give Her a Call - Gil Scott Heron
Same goes for 50's R&B, but probably doubled

Sometimes it's a well-known song, but an obscure cover version is a favorite of mine:
Such as Edwin Starr's version of My Sweet Lord
Or Marion Williams rendition of I Shall Be Released

As for the old jazz you tout:
Draggin' My Heart Around - Al Cooper & his Savoy Sultans -
Imagination - Bennie Moten
Blues I Love to Sing - Adelaide Hall w/ Duke Ellington

It just seems that a large % of my favorite tunes had to be unearthed and virtually nobody else is listening to.  Odd and a little sad maybe.

Want to check those out.   Some are so obscure I don't find a wiki for them.... Like I found Stevie Knicks Draggin my heart  around but not the AL Cooper one.  Think we've got Sarah Vaughn in a storage shed,  but don't know if that one.  Some of those got hit with mold and need new jackets.   

I play too little jazz on the piano... Can do some Gershwin,  Brubeck,  Ramsey Lewis,  Monk (round midnight of course), Rollins,  but not much.  Pre-jazz,  like Confrey and Waller is fun to play.   I do this weird mix song that blends Putting on the Ritz and Unsquare Dance,  maybe I should put that on utube sometime.

In a world with not enough nobility, she was royalty.

A very sad day
