My music playlist for today (March 18, 2012 edition)

It’s time for some jazz-fusion today.  And I’ve got a hankerin’ for some guitar-dominated music played in a way that just sets your hair if not your soul on fire, with plenty of Latin rhythm and flair.  I’m talkin’ some electric guitar as provided by Al DiMeola.

It should be a crime for anyone to get so good at something so early in life the way Al DiMeola did.  When he was in his late teens or early 20s, he was helping Return To Forever — which had already made a name for itself in the fusion movement of the early to mid-1970s — become known as one of THE top fusion bands in the world.

He did it with precision.  He did it with passion.  He did it with speed.  He did it with touch.  They’re all qualities that carry over to this day, all these years later, in everything that he plays, whether it’s with Return To Forever in a reunited form or in his own solo work.

It’s all good.

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 https://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!
