If you will indulge me for just one minute, I would simply like to say that regularly reading our music section in GO! Magazine (every Friday in The Bulletin) is by far your best bet for staying informed about what’s new and what’s happening on Central Oregon’s busy music scene. You have other options for that kind of info, of course, but nowhere will you find coverage as extensive and in-depth as you will in GO!
I say that only because I’m really proud of today’s section. Here’s what’s in there (click to read):
-An interview with acoustic guitar pioneer Leo Kottke on the debt he owes to his instrument
-An interview with jazz saxophonist Bobby Watson about what he learned from Art Blakey
-An interview with rocker Jerry Joseph on his recent Asian tour and new album “Happy Book”
-A Q&A with Seattle-based avant-saxophonist Skerik about his new group Bandalabra
-A review of “Carnivale Electricos,” the dynamic new album from Galactic
-A roundup of solid live-music options for your St. Patrick’s Day revelry
Elsewhere in this week’s music section, you’ll find briefs on The Autonomics’ two-night stand in Bend, James Hunnicutt, Rehab, the 4 Peaks festival lineup, Left Coast Country and more!
