|Jeff Sullivan||131,363||Daily Photography Themes on G+: Curators Circle v1.0Daily photo themes can be a great way to share your best work, or to find creative work by others for enjoyment and inspiration.Lists of the daily themes, with notes on any participation details, are maintained by the following people:+Eric Leslie - http://ericleslie.com/guides/daily-photography-themes-googleplus/+Kol Tregaskes - http://bit.ly/kolgplusphotodailyhashtags+Ray Bilcliff - http://www.trueportraits.com/daily-photo-themes.htmJust Include the theme like today's #SelflessSunday in the text of your post, and others can find it in searches and you can enter that tag in the search box at the top of the page to find photos by other contributors. However, that only works if many people using a theme are looking at (and commenting on) each others' posts. On G+, like in so many areas in life, you get what you give.I've created two circles: one containing theme pages and this one containing theme curators. Theme curators are among the most active photographers (or photography lovers) on G+, but if they're actively curating their theme, visiting most or all posts and interacting with many (comments, +1s, shares), they're also among the busiest, especially as the G+ community grows. Keep your expectations of them reasonable and you won't be disappointed. The golden rule, karma, "what goes around comes around"... take responsibility and be the interaction you want to see. As people come to recognize your comments and posts, you'll get to know people and develop circles of community members to interact with on G+.This is intended to be a comprehensive, inclusive circle, so if I've missed a theme curator please let me know, thanks!||2012-07-08 15:27:44||332||23||7||30||CC G+|

"Nostalgia in Time Square - the Immortal 1959 sessions" CHARLES MINGUS
For #turntabletuesday #vinyl #recordcollection #vinlyrecords
I'm a major fanatic for Mingus, he was the greatest composer in Jazz, meshing gospel, hard bop, freeform experimental/third stream, AND classical music in his work. Bandleader, double bass prodigy, poet and civil rights activist, he was known as "The Angry Man of Jazz" because of his temper ( One of the few musicians Duke Ellington ever fired personally for fistfights on stage. Once, when confronted with a nightclub audience talking and clinking ice in their glasses while he performed, Mingus stopped his band and loudly chastised the audience, stating "Isaac Stern doesn't have to put up with this shit." Mingus reportedly destroyed a $20,000 bass in response to audience heckling at New York's Five Spot) ... more »

Welcome vinyl fans, it's #turntabletuesday
Today I'd like to shine the spotlight the most famous and influential album artists of all time Roger Dean His art set the standard for Prog-rock covers (with many imitators), and his style influenced much heavy metal art and is also the basis for the whole look of the movie "AVATAR"
Though he primarily works with watercolour paints, many of his paintings make use of multiple media, including gouache, ink, enamel, crayon and collage (I love the swirly oil paint effects he creates). In addition to his cover paintings, Dean is respected for his calligraphic work, designing logos and titles to go with his paintings. Graduate of the Canterbury School of Art and the Royal College Of Art, a designer, architect and publisher, he has made many contributions to pop culture. The futuristic "retreat pod" chairs in... more »

An international cover art comparison for this week's #turntabletuesday
Stomu Yamash'ta & GO "GO TOO"
I have both the Japanese and U.S. versions of this album from one of the most interesting supergroups ever. Stomu Yamash'ta has an international reputation as a film score composer (Bowie's "The Man Who Fell To Earth" and the BBC's "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy" ) and an Ambient & Jazz Keyboard/Percussionist. Born in Kyoto, Japan, and studied music at Kyoto University, Juilliard School of Music, and Berklee College of Music, and has also lectured in music. In 1972, he brought the Red Buddha Theatre company from Japan to Europe, acting as their director, producer and composer, writing and performing in the multi-media event "The Man From The East", with Morris Pert's (Brand X) Come To The Edge providing... more »

For #turntabletuesday #recordcollection #vinylrecords +Vinyl
THE FACES "Ooh La La" 1973
Kinda wavered back and forth about what to post today, decided on this great example of an album design that's 'interactive' (in an old-school way) and really captures the personality of the band. Designed by Jim Ludwig- AGI It's a photo of "Gastone", a stage character of Ettore Petrolini, an Italian comedian of the 1920s. When you press the top of the cover down, the eyes roll and the mouth opens and closes ( a la Terry Gilliam/Monty Python).
This was the final album for the Faces, Rod Stewart left after this one. It's more of a team effort because he spent so little time on it, Ron Wood and Ronnie Lane really shine on this with producer Glyn Johns deserving much credit also. The title cut was the only song ever sung... more »

It's #turntabletuesday and it's time for some BLUES !!!
OTIS SPANN "Cryin' Time"
This is a ONE DOLLAR yard sale find that is one of my most-prized albums!
The cover art just cries blues music, and it's on Vanguard Records, so the sound is superior.
His mother played guitar for Memphis Minnie and Big Maceo Merriweather mentored him when he was 14 and living in Chicago alone after his Mom died. He joined the Muddy Waters band in '52, playing alongside Willie Dixon & Buddy Guy.
The house pianist for Chess Records for many years, he is famed as the king of the Chicago blues keyboard players and has literally played with everybody you can name in blues, from Big Mama Thornton, James Cotton, Howlin' Wolf, Bo Diddley, Robert Lockwood, Luther Johnson, Eric Clapton, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, etc, etc.,... more »

For #turntabletuesday +Turntable Tuesday
GRAND FUNK RAILROAD "E Pluribus Funk"
Just love a good Hammond organ jam, and GFR's "Footstompin' Music" ranks in my top ten, along with Argent's "Hold Your Head Up" Sugarloaf's "Green-Eyed Lady" and Spencer Davis Band's "Gimme Some Lovin" & "I'm a Man" (could list lots more, but you get the idea)
Grand Funk were formed in 1969 in Flint, Michigan by Mark Farner and Don Brewer from Terry Knight & The Pack and Mel Schacher from Bay City's Question Mark & The Mysterians (the first true 'garage punk' band - remember "96 Tears" ?) They sold more albums in 1970 than any other American rock band ( "Closer To Home" reached multi-platinum sales), largely due to their dynamic debut at the Atlanta Pop Festival in '69. They... more »

Joyful music for +C. Corey Fisk #howwasyourdaysweetie
Most people might probably think of Beethoven's "Ode To Joy" first, but I immediately think of Italy's PFM (Premiata forneria Marconi "The Best Bread In Town" -named after the bakery that let them rehearse there ;D)
This is one of the most infectious, happy pieces of music I know, and never fails to lift my mood.
And kudos to +Alan Shapiro for a wonderful idea!!

THE HEAT IS ON!!
My contribution today is the most bad-ass musical family ever...... The Isley Brothers What can you say about a group that regularly upstaged James Brown when they were still teenagers on the Gospel circuit, who gave Jimi Hendryx his first paying recording gig (which brought loud fuzzy Rock guitar into the brand-new genre of Funk) and were the first Black group with their own record label (T-Neck, named for their hometown of Teaneck, N.J.) They had a hit with "Twist and Shout" before the Beatles, they are the... more »

I cannot tell the precise time when I called you a friend. It just came slowly and not realizing that I have come to expect you and welcoming your presence every time. It is giving me that feeling that my day is incomplete without you.
Hanging out with friends is one of life's simple pleasures.

For #welovemusicwednesday and my music friends and supporters....
Here you go, one of my more elaborate pieces for large ensemble as requested ;). The score is pretty wild and some parts are physically unplayable. If it were to ever be recorded I would have to do a LOT of editing. This is again. NOT a live recording but a simulation using my sound library.
"Mod II" This is the 2nd movement from a large 4 movement work. Best to be heard with earphones or good speakers, my sound production quality isn't up to where I would like it to be.

The next share of this circle will be in March around the 10th.
Are you a B&W shooter..? Are you in this circle..? if not, send me a note. If you shoot at least 40% of your work in B&W then you will be added. This is the LARGEST collection of B&W photographers on G+ and I am always looking to add more.

For #turntabletuesday 's Electronica/Trance theme
Robert Fripp & Brian Eno No Pussyfooting
This 1973 album is cool on many levels, it is one of the first recordings using King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp's FRIPPERTRONICS which consisted of two modified reel-to-reels. He would play a guitar note into them and it would repeat, and then he'd layer more notes, building up a wall of sound. The earlier notes would gradually fade away, and change their tonal quality because of the analog tape. On this album, Eno ran the tape decks through his electronics, taking the music further out into the stratosphere (he did this on quite a few of his ex-Roxy Music cohort Phil Manzanera's albums too, and on his own recordings he referred to it as Sky-Saw Guitar ).
Each side has one piece of music on it. One side was done in Eno's studio, the other was done in... more »

THE RESIDENTS "Commercial Album"
I live in a small hick town, and opportunities to hear cutting edge avant-garde/experimental music are non-existent. I read a magazine article about this new group whose name came from a record label rejection letter addressed to "The residents of ... their street address " and it also mentioned they recorded with Fred Frith (I was already familiar with 'Henry Cow' & 'The Art Bears' ) so I figured, that's good enough for me. I sent off (the unheard of price for 1980) $25 U.S. to the hilarious-sounding RALPH RECORDS in San Francisco with my fingers crossed, having had bad luck with mail order before (I chose their "Commercial Album", thinking that would be the most accessible, right ?).
When it arrived and I opened the package, my first reaction was 'how the hell... more »

The album art I'd like to share today for #turntabletuesday is the Mahavishnu Orchestra "Between Nothingness & Eternity" Live in Central Park album, with the original lineup of Mahavishnu John Mclaughlin, Jan Hammer, Jerry Goodman, Rick Laird, and Billy Cobham. This album really demonstrates how incendiary their early performances were, and defined Fusion Jazz-rock for years afterward. Each musician went on to front bands of their own and spawned many imitators.
The very stunning photography and design for this cover was done by Ashok & Pranavananda (designed many covers for Mahavishnu, and a few Santana ones as well ) except for the inner "Star Cluster" foldout art by Helmut Wimmer (courtesy of The American Museum/Hayden Planetarium) and contained an excerpt of the poem "My Flute" by SRI CHINMOY (John McLaughlin's swami)
