For those who are apparently spelling-challenged, it's BRASIL '66, not Brazil; and HERB ALPERT, not Herp Albert!

Herb & Lani have a new CD coming out soon on Concord Jazz titled, "Anything Goes." It's a live album and has a mix of jazz standards and Brazilian tunes. They are backed by Bill Cantos on piano, Hussain Jiffry on bass and Michael Shapiro on drums and percussion. To promote their new CD, they are going out on tour. Their web site is
www.herbalpert.com and you can read more at www.amcorner.com as well.

Frankly, I could care less if I spelled the names wrong. I type very fast. But since I have every album Sergio ever made, I have a connection to his music that goes beyond a few spelling errors. But thanks for correcting me.

I have an uncontrollable urge to join a blog, and correct someone's spelling.

Frankly, I am surprised you didn't call for the thread to be locked down. Seriously, removing your posts and then saying you were misquoted is, ah...
weird to say the least.

Honestly, when you say something "humorous, satirical..." and people in mass don't get it, that's because perhaps it either wasn't said well or they did get it and it wasn't all that funny.

Removing posts or calling for a lock down of a thread is a kin to taking your glove and bat home because you don't like the way the other kids were playing.

It's your right to do so, but it won't stop other kids from continuing to play.

Water, water, every where,
And all the boards did shrink ;
Water, water, every where,
Nor any drop to drink.

Could this translate to mean...

Tiki, tiki,o' so near
The limes are in the sink;
Tiki, tiki o' so near
The Ti is closed to drink.

So who is more tiki? If not the Beatles, then perhaps Alfred Tennyson or Coleridge?

how could anyone hate the Fab Four!

the thing is about the 60s for those of us who came of age during that particular decade alot of it was just downright boring... but the one thing that made it un-boring was the music... I was looking at the top ten song of 1962 and to my shock and awe the number one song was Green Onions by Booker T and the MGs.. go figger right? the Beatles weren't even on the charts yet not seriously anyway... when Dick Clark played the lads on American Bandstand the kids hated it because "you can't dance to it"!!

ob la di ob la da!

Shaka!

That would be the exact sentiment I would expect from some rock fan.

But for everyone else, prior to 1964 there was a HELL of a lot of stuff happening. It's just the young people of that time period that hated their "parent's music". Besides the awesome early soul of Booker T, there was Sam and Dave and a whole bunch of other stuff...not to mention all the great jazz of that era. You rocker/hippies make it almost sound as if the music world was dead and buried until the coming of the Beatles!

As for me, I would rather listen to Booker T and the MGs ANY day of the week besides the Beatles. Do some research on Stax-volt before you brush that classic R and B away so easily! Donald Duck Dunn? That man is like a God to me.
