My music playlist for today (September 11, 2012 edition)

You know the greatness of a musician’s gifts when they can walk away from one top-notch band and form another.

Jazz and fusion keyboard giant Chick Corea has done that.  When his band Return To Forever ran its course, he put together another formidable outfit in the Elektric Band.

Don’t try comparing RTF to the Elektric Band, or vice versa.  They’re two different animals.  When you can bring in players like Victor Wooten, Frank Gambale, Dave Weckl, Eric Marienthal, John Patitucci, Scott Henderson, Carlos Rios, and Jamie Glaser, just to name a few, that’s an impressive feat.

Leave it to someone like Chick Corea to do it.

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!
