My music playlist for today (March 12, 2012 edition)

I was lucky enough to grab a couple of albums when they came out from 1983-85 that are pretty hard to come by today — or at least one of them is out of print now.  The albums were “Music For Piano and Drums” (sadly under-represented here in video due to lack of videos posted) and “Flags.”  The artists were British rock and jazz drummer Bill Bruford and Swiss keyboardist Patrick Moraz.

“Music For Piano and Drums” was just that … straight piano and drums, with some super-sweet music contained within.  “Flags” was more electronic, and just as good as the duo’s first effort.

Both musicians had some glorious moments in the progressive rock group Yes, although they never played together in the studio with that group.  When they did get together on these two albums, it was magical.  They both had a touch and a chemistry that was like pure cane sugar.

A LATE NOTE:  Just now, after posting this, I was informed that not only are these albums not out of print, but an additional live CD was released.  Fantastic news to me!  http://billbruford.co.uk/

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that puts us back into the "middle class." I won't stop blogging, though. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at http://viewfrommiddleclass.wordpress.com/ and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at http://thecrossovermusicchannel.blogspot.com/ that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/daddysangbassdude2 for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
