Ben Sidran does Bob Dylan

Listen to the songs here Lots of people have attended UW-Madison and never left after graduation. One of these the  great Ben Sidran. While a student at UW, he helped form a band called the Ardells with Steve Miller and Boz Scaggs. Ben later went on to write Millers big hit Space Cowboy. After a short stint in LA, he returns to Madison is 1971 and has been here ever since., teaching a course at the UW about the business of music, and hosted a variety of jazz programs on NPR. One of my favorite of his collaborations is with Van Morrison, Mose Allison and Georgie Fame on Van's album, " Tell me Something" in 1996. His latest project is pretty awesome " Dylan Different". Ben has recorded a dozen well known Bob Dylan songs and made them his own! Some of the tunes  are All I really Want to Do, Tangled Up in Blue, and Knockin' on Heavens Door.  If you are either a Dylan fan or a jazz fan, you will love this album that comes out in November! Here's a sample.

Mayflies: faschinating, or horrifying? You decide.
The mayflies were out in full force over the past couple days. Now I've heard about these insects over the years, but have never experienced a mayfly swarm. I think I'm pretty happy about that. Apparently the mayflies were so thick they...
