I love Rhett Miller.

As Significant Eater notes, "he's so cute, and has great hair!"

I'll note he's got an earnestness along with a bit of a punk ethos - he does Bowie well.  As if it needs to be mentioned, the Bowie catalog is very, very impressive.

Michael's voice is so nice.

Last night, the inimitable Albert Lee. At the somewhat inimitable Iridium (these old "jazz" clubs are tight).

Of course, his guitar playing is simply out of this world. I was surprised at how good his voice still is.

His fingers are like twice as long as a regular humans.

And I regard that as the new Iridium. I used to go when it was near Lincoln Center.

Does anyone want to hear my Les Paul story?

I was surprised to learn that the UWS location only really lasted like 6 - 7 years, before it moved to Broadway.

Sure, tell your Les Paul story (though I think you told it on the old MFF)...

I believe so; it was certainly on that short block.

Many years ago I had a friend in town from the UK. Looking for something to do, we came across a Les Paul show at Iridium. Why not?

Before the set started, my friend and I were standing at the bar when this old guy comes up and tries to start a conversation. Like any cool barflies we basically rebuffed him and his boring questions.

He gave up, turned away, walked to the stage and picked up a guitar. We had turned our backs on Les Paul.

When I was 14 I was working a Comicon a friend was running.  I was in an elevator and in walked this really skeevy-looking man.  I edged away from him.  It was like he was oozing grease.

I later saw him on a panel.  It was Jim Steranko.

At least it wasn't Clark Kent!

You know, that url is kind of unfortunate when you think about it.

I hear you but the festival is so much more than just the headliners. On the heritage side there are tremendous acts all day long including brass bands, mardi gras indian bands and so many parades. And of course the food. The jazz piece has gotten weaker but we've seen some amazing acts in the Jazz Tent.
