Yes, I am like 60. My brother was listening to "Drums of Passion" when I was nine.
A few more thoughts after pondering this discussion while in the dentist chair
You seem like a great person to discuss music with, very broad tastes, just a
little too quick to generalize unnecessarily
A final thought on Mickey Hart. You are right, he is not a spectacular drummer,
especially in the company he keeps. As for this discussion, I endorse Mickey Hart
as a great facilitator, bringing together world-class percussionists into a
tribal and exotic "stew" if you will. If people get beyond his "hippie" background
and get a chance to listen to Giovanni Hidalgo, Babatunda Olatunji, Zakir,
and the other percussionists involved in the project, then I believe it fits into the
experiences we call "tiki." No, it is not tiki music in the sense that
Les Baxter is, maybe not even in the sense that Jobim could be considered
lounge, but to some people it might fit into the mix.
Although I said earlier that I won't be rubbing elbows with you guys anytime
soon, I backtrack to add that I think it would be fun.
Don't toss me in the dumpster just cuz I seem to like "hippie" music. How
do you feel about Quicksilver Messenger Service and how it fits into
the tiki/exotica picture?
