Jim Schreck from Jim and Dee in the morning shares with you some of the cool, sometimes off-the-beaten-path music he finds. ================== See the animated video for the modern holiday song we’ve been waiting for.   From Their website: "To pinpoint Thank You Scientist’s sound would be inconceivable. On Maps of Non-Existent Places they hold a virtual master class on musicianship, fusing elements of progressive rock with jazz fusion, classical, metal, psychedelic and pop for a head spinning, mind-blowing listening experience." Jim agrees!       Bob Geldof has released a new version of his classic song “Do They Know It’s Christmas”. This version is designed to raise money to fight Ebola in Africa. This updated edition features some altered lyrics, such as, “Well tonight we’re reaching out and touching you” to replace Bono’s original guilt-inducing line “Well tonight thank god it’s them instead of you.” In its first day, it raised over a million and a half dollars. A number of high profile pop stars and musicians worked on the track: Bastille, Bono (from U2), Clean Bandit, Disclosure, Elbow, Paloma Faith, Fuse, Nick Grimshaw, Ellie Goulding, Angelique Kidjo, Chris Martin (from Coldplay), Olly Murs, Sinead O’Connor, One Direction, Rita Ora, Emeli Sande, Seal, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Underworld, Jessie Ware.     Aa nationwide broadcast of "The War Of The Worlds," the broadcast that scared the heck out of some people back in 1938 was broadcast on Halloween eve   Check out the new five song EP and music video from Geneva's very own "Call Security".   Watch as Kate Davis beautifully covers Meghan Trainor’s ‘All About That Bass’.     Ozzy Osbourne arranged for Harp? Meet the Harp twins, Camille and Kennerly Kitt. Both of the sisters hold music degrees, are third-degree black belt in Taekwondo, are Rifle marksman and were competitive swimmers.       Indie band Lake Street Dive was a big hit at the grass roots Festival in Trumansburg. Check out their cover of a Jackson five single!  Take a listen to this killer melodic guitar track! This is a friend of Jim's from Hollywood California, Eric Maldonado. ==================  Dirty Loops is a band from Stockholm, Sweden. The band is best known for doing jazz fusion covers of pop tunes. They describe their style as "Classic Jazz-Jam" or "Jazz-Step". ================== I purchased Chris Duartes first album in the 90s and became an instant fan. If you haven't heard him, you should. He played at Deweys (Clam Man's Party House) in Seneca Falls Tuesday, May 20, and will be at Abilene bar in Rochester on the 22nd. If you dig Texas guitar, don't miss this show!      Besides being an old friend of Jim's, Miche Fambro is one of the most talented people you may never have heard of. It's time to change that. This is his latest CD, take a listen! ================== More great cool artists on page2!
