    TR Member Stanton Lawrence keeps a great blog! Do you read it? Here's an excerpt from his latest entry:

    I have often heard that the key to achieving your goals is focus. It’s a simple concept really, but one that I can’t say that I have put much stock in, until recently that is. Lately I have found when I start to do something creative I am easily distracted. Sometimes I feel like I am almost looking for things to sidetrack me.

    I will be doing something new this coming Saturday-a Virtual House Concert with fellow TMBG Band Member Tim McDonald. This is not unlike a house concert, we perform a short set as a duo on piano and bass (very likely songs from my two CDs and the Tim McDonald II CD we recorded with Chester Thompson on drums). It will be a really interesting experience for me, and if some of my TMBG friends and fans would like to join me and Tim, we'd be honored! It's 6-6:30 pm CDT at this link:

    Esperanza Spalding

    A year or so ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing Esperanza Spalding for Thunder Row. Since that time, a lot of folks have joined the Row so we thought, since Ms. Spalding won Best New Artist at the Grammy's last year, we'd re-run the interview of this exceptional talent, so you could get to know her better. Read on!

    Okay, here's a riddle for you. Who's an exceptional bassist, an incredible singer, a fabulous and original songwriter, has an infectious laugh, has played at the White House as well as with Stevie Wonder and a cartload of other headliners and, incidentally, is almost single-handedly changing the face of contemporary jazz, (and several other genres)? Her name is Esperanza Spalding. She's twenty-four, poised, gracious, and a delight, as you're about to see. (Esperanza, incidentally, is Spanish for hope, and we hope you'll get to know her!)

    From the Post And Courier

    The Motown sound was largely defined by a modest 13-member house band that worked with such stars as Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson and many others.

    They were called the Funk Brothers, and they included Edisto Island native James Jamerson on bass. The Funk Brothers are getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today. The commemorative star will be positioned next to the stars of Dizzy Gillespie (another South Carolina native), Thelonious Monk and Herbie Hancock.

    Roger Fisher and Steve Fossen have been friends for nearly 50 years. They were part of the first sophomore class at Inglemoor High School, shared the same homeroom and played their first gigs around the Kenmore and Bothell area. In (April for web) two weeks they will do one more big thing together - officially become “Rock Gods.”
