My music playlist for today (August 21, 2012 edition)

If there’s one jazz fusion outfit I wouldn’t mind investing in a bit more for my music collection if I could, it would be a German import — Passport.

I was introduced to Klaus Doldinger‘s Passport several years ago by an online friend.  It’s amazing how you can meet some people through the worldwide web alone, never meeting them in person, and you begin to find that their tastes in such things as music can be very similar to your own just by talking about it.

Doldinger himself has said that Passport isn’t so much a “set group” as much as it is an outlet for the German saxophonist to bring musicians together to create a Doldinger “project.”

These “projects” have been created since the first release in 1971, continuing on into the new century.

Doldinger has been around the music world professionally since the 1950s, but he’s stayed more on the European side of “the pond.”  That’s made him more of an unknown in the States, but once you’re exposed to it his music has a way of staying with you.

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 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 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 for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
