NAMM Madness

I usually spend a weekend in January at the NAMM show in Anaheim.  We are usually burned out after a few hours and head out for a tangarita at a local bar.  But in those few hours we spend at the show, we do see some really curious musical instruments.  Like the round piano...

Can't wait to see this at our local Holiday Inn piano bar...

There was a whole section devoted to new companies producing analog synthesizers.  Lots of knobs, switches, and lights.

Then there were the basses....  Even more strings than last year.  First, the basic model!

Now the new 24 string bass...

Just a taste of NAMM Madness.  Creativity combined with insanity produces some very curious musical instruments.

Best SLC Jazz 2013

The pic is from the Granary District in SLC.  Kind of a neat thing going on down there.  Check it out.

Also, check out some tunes I've posted that represent some of the best jazz I heard in the last year.
