From sweet and smooth classics, to new names, to old names with new music...the focus here, is to shine a little light on some damn fine music.

I'll find it. You can listen, review, or tell me I wouldn't know good music if it kicked me in the ass. I personally don't give a shit.

Fun, Fun and More Fun: Tom Rigney

I've have been trying to feature today's taste for several months now. Each time I start listening to the songs so I can narrow down which ones I want to showcase...I get lost in the music and another hour or so disappears. It is just so fun.

Tom Rigney is a fiddler. He plays an electronic violin, composes some sweet music and heads up the band Tom Rigney and Flambeau. Working out of San Francisco, Rigney and Flambeau play some crazy cajun and roots music, featuring everything from can't-stop-your-feet jams to bring-a-tear-to-your-eye instrumentals.

Ranging from traditional zydeco melodies to blues inspired songs to veritable waltzes, this is some interesting and totally enjoyable stuff.

Tastin' time...

"My Babe" ...nothin' could be better than to see her in a sweater and a tight skirt that won't quit.
"Drivin' That Thing" ...all the women uptown talk about him drivin that thing
"The Eyes of Love"... breathtakingly beautiful instrumental
"Party Gras" ...a little funk, a little blues, a little zydeco

"If your feet ain't tappin', baby you're dead."
