Quote & Music of the day -- 12/5/04

"Governments and the military purport to protect the public from enemies, and if there were no enemies they would have to invent some, for the simple purpose of rationalizing their existence ...." -- Laurance Labadie

Medeski, Martin & Wood & Marc Ribot y Los Cubanos Postizos -- Tributes to Burt Bacharach -- Merkin Concert Hall, NYC 9/14/97

Here's another interesting bit torrent, this one courtesy of etree. MMW is one of the premier jazz/funk/groove acts out there today and Los Cubanos Postizos is a quality jazz band with Latin influences, led by NYC guitarist Marc Ribot. These two groups provide some neat interpretations of Burt Bacharach tunes.
