Quote of the Day

“Today I\'m writing albums, recording CDs, supplying distributors, playing for large audiences... I stopped waiting for the major labels and accomplished all this by starting my own label. Who’s laughing now?”- Jon Bare

Grammy Night Impressions

February 14, 2011

What an opening - that Aretha tribute! And Ms Franklin looked good in her video greeting - best wishes for continued recovery!

Thought Lady Gaga's big production number absolutely superb - nothing that followed all night could match it in my book. Other highlights: The muppets with Cee-Lo Green and Gwyneth Paltrow, and Mick Jagger doing his energetic Solomon Burke tribute. So funny, the skinny doing the substantial. Appreciated seeing more performances and fewer on-air awards, hence fewer thank-you speeches.

Was super pleased when Esperanza Spalding won. Some nincompoops messed up her Wikipedia page because they thought Bieber should have won. Anyone in doubt about Ms Spaldings talents - just youtube the words > Esperanza Spalding White House < and watch and listen to a few of the Stevie Wonder songs she performs - she'd have a great career just as a bassist!

These two were judged the best-engineered recordings -- congratulations to all involved:
