Listen to “Feels Like Home”
I’ve been listening to the Nadas for quite a while. At least 12 years of auditory enjoyment. I remember seeing them perform at the OP in Cedar Falls, Iowa while I was a student at the University of Northern Iowa. I’ve seen them perform at venues in Iowa, in Chicago, IL and at a friends wedding in Minnesota. I’ve watched these guys grow up while I myself was maturing. When the inevitable occurs and the Nadas retire/break-up, I’m going to be bummed out. They have been a musical constant in my eclectic musical collection. I wonder if they’ll ever make it out to Oregon for a gig?
Listen to “Blue Lights”
Listen to “Coming Home”
John Mayer allows audio recording at most concerts. This is a good thing. Audio of the entire John Mayer show from July 5th in Noblesville, Indiana is available via John Mayer’s website. The concert is in .flac format. It’s a lossless format which means that anyone who listens to it automatically wins.
Note, a lot of audio playback apps do not support .flac files. Fortunately, one of my faves, the VLC media player (free + works on almost all OS’s) easily plays .flac files in all of their lossless awesomeness.

Some of you know that I used to play the trombone in high school and in college. Many of you were not aware of this particular facet of my persona.
One of my favorite trombone-based albums is the obscure and amazingly-named “Bone Voyage” by the Airmen of Note. Bone Voyage features some of the craziest jazz trombone recordings that I have ever heard. They must have had some well developed embouchures.
The entire album is available online and it’s been converted from the original LP into 64 kbps MP3 format.
