Brubeck would often perform in his home town when the Concord Jazz Festival got off the ground at a neighborhood park and eventually morphing into a jazz label (Concord Jazz) and eventually merging with Fantasy Records.

This somewhat somber tune popped up in our universe recently.

An amazing family connection, Bob! Thanks for the recollection.

Bob's George Straight number on the other thread led to this more somber road tune.

"I've been away too long"

"Don't bother comin' home . . . somebody new . . . "

Just discovered this on the PBS show of Joan Baez's 75th birthday, with Richard singing a duet of this fine number, She Never Could Resist A Winding Road.

" . . . the open road whispered in her ear . . . "

Another somber road song . . .





PS -- Some of his other songs are on this thread, as well as the OTRA I thread.

Another good somber one from Arlo Guthrie, for these troubled times IMO. Click on the link at the top for a new window, which will lead to more great tunes.

Can't believe this one has escaped notice as a great albeit sad road song!

This great Richie Havens tune popped up in the mix this morning.

Picture being at a campground, high on a bluff overlooking the Pacific, as the languid ocean swells stir the kelp grass floating on the surface of a glassy sea . . .

ďAnd close your eyes, child, and look at what I'll show you;
Let your mind go reeling out and let the breezes blow you,
And maybe when we meet then suddenly I will know you.
If all the things you see ainít what they seem,
Then don't mind me 'cos I ain't nothin' but a dream .
And you can follow; And you can follow; follow... ď

Have a good weekend!

Peter

ThanX Don for the traveling music. Are you planning any time at TR this year ?? We will be here for the end of March. Hope we'll see you there.

Hope you both have great Holidays and safe travels.
