Country Music is Jazzy! and a sideway step to the rocky 70’s !

An acquaintance of mine used to complain to me that country music was all about a guy losing his pickup truck and his horse. He knew zippo about country music obviously.

Country music covers a spectrum of sounds like no other. Whether you like pop rock, bluegrass, folk or jazz you can certain Country Music includes a sound you will like.

I can’t say I know anything about the music scene now, or even ten years ago. I just don’t pay much attention anymore but there are some names in country music even I recognize.

I think one thing about country music that I like is that it often has a sense of humor, and tries in a light-hearted way to relate to real life. Sort of.

The sounds of country are a long way from the Aerosmith, Paul McCartneryBand on the Run, Golden Earring,  many many Elton John songs of my youth (love Crocodile Rock!)

In my younger days I remember singing along with the radio to Radar Love, and Band on the Run and listening to CKLG radio in Vancouver. Those were the days of songs like Barroom Blitz, and (Sparks) This Town ain’t big enough for both of us!

Now look I’m stuck in the 70″s! Queen – One Night at the Opera; Suzi Quatro – Your Moma won’t like me!

Oh I have to get out this 70’s pop loop — let’s enjoy some country jazz with The Tractors. 🙂
