    Bowie will release his new album “Blackstar” on his birthday……..8th January, 2016. It’s a jazz album which was recorded in NYC. (trumpet shit??)

    I’m sure this will be the very soul of pretentiousness … and that I will love it.

    “Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)” probably offers a bit of a hint at what is to come.

    From the Times of London:

    “an album of long, jazzy jams mixed with the kind of driving beat pioneered by Seventies German bands Can and Kraftwerk.”

    Lovely!

    (BTW, what does the “trumpet shit” reference mean? I’ve seen that crop up in a few places here.)

    miles and dizzy are particularly offensive to her.  go figure.  I haven’t specifically enquired about Wynton yet…I am kind of afraid to talk to her anymore about trumpets – she gets really emotional and unstable and it’s frightening

    As we are in danger of violating one of David Mamet’s cardinal rules of drama (see below), I will stand down for the moment and allow CindyC to weigh in on these matters herself:

    “HERE ARE THE DANGER SIGNALS. ANY TIME TWO CHARACTERS ARE TALKING ABOUT A THIRD, THE SCENE IS A CROCK OF SHIT.”

    quite possibly. we need to enlist a third character soon…

    To be fair to CindyC, it’s my fault and angee’s fault that the term “trumpet shit” is all over the place lately.

    HA – Trumpet shit – LOL.      That reminds me when I took my sister to the Musee D’Orsay.    We started at a low floor where there are lots of dark paintings about the French Revolution and such.    After about a half hour, my sister said “I’m sick of this old shit, let’s go see the impressionists”.       Evidently, crassness runs in my family.

    I will say that I liked the Strauss trumpet sample that Longbeach so nicely provided.    That was actually quite beautiful.       I can’t comment on Dizzy or that other guy, but based on what I heard the other night on the podcast, I think it might just be jazz trumpet that I am not a fan of.   It’s just an overly brassy sound to my uneducated ears, and combined with all those cymbals and the forceful piano playing, it’s just a lot of noise to me.

    I do have that misophonia thing, so noises that offend me do tend to produce an anger type response.  That’s why i had to shut that shit off.

    Wasn't looking too good, but I was feeling real well

    Feel free to run with it!    It gives me a laugh.

    I did like The Next Day, allthough I think it would benefit from being reduced to half the lenght…..there’s too many fillers there, or should one rather say songs that weren’t worthy of finishing. But the good songs are good and worth repeated listens

    But the song “Sue” – which is on that new “Nothing has Changed” 3CD compilation…..darn, I couldn’t listen to that song more than once, it’s not just a “filler”…. it’s a kind of atonal music that my ears can not accept. I always start CD1 of that compilation with track number 2. Then again…..I didn’t care for his new material in the Outside/Earthling days, in the mid 90s – but a little later; I really started loving it. Can’t imagine me caring for Sue in the future though, but you never know

    “Sue” is definitely a tough sell, Erik. I loved almost all of The Next Day when I first heard it, but it failed to build for me upon repeated listens. I still think about half of it is very good … but I don’t have time anymore for very good Bowie. He’ll never write a “Moonage Daydream,” a “We Are the Dead,” or a “Station to Station” again … but, maybe, just maybe, he’ll do something totally different, totally outre that will resonate with me. I have that kind of faith in him as an artist. He may fail miserably with ★ … but at least he’ll have tried to once again push the envelope and re-imagine what pop music can be.

    I hope it’s WAY out there and it pisses lots of people off. The last thing we need is another classic rocker who has not realized that his formula is stale and that he will never recapture the magic of his salad days.

    Very well put! And meanwhile I didn’t “like” Sue – I liked the fact that he wasn’t trying to play it safe with that single, unlike some other bands and artists that just try to copy their previous selves. I look forward to his new album…..because one never know how it’ll turn out. Unlike Keith’s “Trouble” for instance which I allready knew would be like just by seeing the photo on the frontcover…..not saying that it’s a terrible album, but it’s not exciting – and probably won’t get more than 2 spins here.

    Since this is a Rolling Stones board, I’m not feeling guilty for involving Keith into the Bowie thread though I won’t take it further

    I feel the same way about Crosseyed Heart … but I think different people listen to music for different reasons. I would imagine that Keith’s record is probably the equivalent of “comfort food” for many of his fans, and that’s fine, more power to them. I prefer artists who take more chances, who walk that tightrope, who may soar or plummet to earth.

    I listen to music for one reason and one reason only:  they told me had to.

    Bowie today released a film for the full ten-minute version of his “Blackstar” track:

    The upcoming album, which is called ★ , is out on 8 Jan 16.

    I’ve only listened to this a couple of times; will refrain from commenting for a bit. There’s thorny gorgeousness here to unpack.

    Wow! Just looking at that screen capture in the post above. In his old age, Bowie is beginning to resemble more and more the elder version of Ronald Reagan–a thinner, whiter, dukier version to be sure, but nonetheless strikingly Reaganesque, particularly around the lower half of his face.

    I hate you for pointing that out to me; pls provide instructions for removing that unfortunately accurate image from my brain. A man can only live with so much truth.
