Showcasing Piero Piccioni - Crime Themed Mood Music Extraordinaire

picPiero Piccioni was one of Italy's most prolific andpic creative film composers. Inventive, futuristic Jazz for Science-Fiction, moody orchestration and Funk for gangster movies and political thrillers and serious B-3 boogie and wah-wah groovers for oddball sexcapades; no genre was beyond his range.

He incorporates jazz, mystery-adventure thrills, and avant-garde elements into his wide variety of work which has been the sonic backdrop for everything from B horror films to lush, romantic epics.

Take a trip back to the wild and hip swinging days of the 60's & 70's that sound as modern today as ever! Wed March 13, 2-3PM.

Anchors Aweigh on Lyrical Venus!

Heather MillerGonna throw my anchor down
Gonna hold my head up high
Gonna claim this brave new world
In the name of you and I
Anchor ~ Heather Miller

Oh hey! It's yours truly, DJ Hum with my own CD now! Officially releasing to the world on Friday!

In May 2011, Fairfield singer-songwriter Heather Miller followed her musical calling all the way to Austin, Texas to study with mentor and producer Daniel Barrett at Rubicon Recording Studios. Daniel’s Rubicon Year program, which offers intensive study and goal-oriented mentoring in writing, musicianship, performing, and recording, allowed Heather to dive deep into the creative process and examine her relationship to it from every angle.

One year, 157 open mic performances, and a successful Kickstarter campaign later, Heather is back home in Fairfield and excited to celebrate the completion of her project with a five-song debut EP. Called Anchor, the album is an inspiring collection of catchy, rootsy, melodic songs, drawing their stories from love and life, doubts and dreams.

the best year of music

it's a common discussion among music affecionados--1968no, it's frequently an argument: what was the best overall year for music? old timers (and their children) fondly remember the music of the late sixties and early seventies. the beatles, stones, led zeppelin, jazz-rock, psychedelic...the music was exploding, and creativity was oozing. (it was a violent and sticky time)

1992 but maybe the era which saw the rise of grunge, took rap to a new level, the end of hair bands, and created a whole new wave of hard metal and electronic sounds, deserves some consideration.

since it's election time, it's time for you to vote. what was the best musical year? read on...
