Bob Dylan's "Highway 61 Revisited": Mike Bloomfield vs. Johnny Winter

“She run on to New Orleans, and down to the Gulf of Mexico.” The most famous road in blues lore, Highway 61 was built during the 1920s and 1930s. From New Orleans, it veers northwest into Mississippi, rolling through Natchez and Vicksburg. From there, it cuts through the Mississippi Delta, a ribbon of concrete and asphalt amid vast cotton fields sprinkled with silos, shacks, and small towns. It passes through Rolling Fork, where Muddy Waters was born, and near Tutwiler, where W.C. For generations of African Americans living under harsh Jim Crow laws down South, Highway 61 was regarded as nothing less than the road to freedom and salvation.

Released in 1965, Highway 61 Revisited stands as one of Bob Dylan’s finest albums. "Tatlı ses" 2012 анонс.mpg.

I'm Proud Of All My Songs, Even The Ones I Stole From People I Heard At Open-Mic Nights

It's been a great privilege, putting these songs out in the world and watching them inspire generation after generation. It's been said my best songs have become permanent touchstones of American life. And I take great pride in all my songs, even the ones I plagiarized from musicians I heard performing at open-mic nights. People always ask where my ideas for songs come from.

The truth is, they come from all over. I can remember back in 1964 hearing a kid in a Bleecker Street coffeehouse sing a song that seemed to capture perfectly the directionless angst we were all feeling in the wake of the Kennedy assassination.

Evolution of music by public choice

Lenski, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI, and approved May 10, 2012 (received for review February 27, 2012) Abstract Music evolves as composers, performers, and consumers favor some musical variants over others. To investigate the role of consumer selection, we constructed a Darwinian music engine consisting of a population of short audio loops that sexually reproduce and mutate.

‘Don Giovanni,’ Los Angeles Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel

It took until 1986 for the city to develop, in the Los Angeles Opera, a serious, stable opera company. And on Saturday evening, at the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s performance of “Don Giovanni,” silence greeted Mozart’s winking quotation of his own “Nozze di Figaro” during the final scene. It was an opera in-joke in search of an opera audience. It hasn’t helped that the last few years have been hard on the Los Angeles Opera, which put on some exciting, important productions but has also had its income and ambitions shrink, along with the length of its seasons. The Philharmonic clearly sees an opening. The marquee offering is a staged cycle of Mozart’s three operas to librettos by Lorenzo Da Ponte. Combining Frank Gehry with Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the sisters who founded the label Rodarte, turned out to be a clever idea. Christopher Alden’s direction felt out of sync too.
