Danielle Baldelli (pure Nazareth)

If you want to familiarize yourself with the place where most of my thoughts find their (penultimate) home, watch part 1 of this interview with D. Baldelli, especially focussing in on the portion where he recounts, using records, how the (inspired) "Cosmic" sound was born. I first watched this months ago, and I'm posting it now because I think about it still daily, even hourly. This interview captures much that is objective vis-a-vis the nature of art and creativity (i.e., the way God works). So far ahead of it's time; aesthetics born of ideas; convention questioned rightly; a non-English speaker (i.e., an alien); post-modern ideals realized in the late 70s; can anything good come out of Nazareth? Yes, all inspiration as epitomized by the story of Daniele Baldelli's work during the late 70s/early 80s. Watch the video, don't read the text! Note: the second section, where he speaks of his more recent interests and legacy is much less fascinating. Grace is not a process.

Baldelli is unbelievable, what a sound.

Also, there is this up and coming DJ's stuff I like as well: JAZ. His re-edits are amazing!

I hear he's spinning in NY this weekend...

Yeah! JAZ is boss- I'll be in NY just to see him break it down. He's got all the hidden wax!
