Michelin selects 56 Chicago restaurants for good value

 (Crain's) Chicago's restaurants got another visit from the Michelin man as the venerable guide named its "good value" places to eat in the city.

Michelin, the French tire company that has branched into travel and leisure guides, on Wednesday released its 2012 Bib Gourmand list. Fifty-six Chicago restaurants landed on the new list; 46 made the cut for 2011.

Surprised to hear your lack of enthusiasm over Wilco.

I like them fine and get it why people love them -- but Nick Lowe is way cooler.

I'm not huge on Wilco or Billy Bragg, BUT I think the two albums they did together covering Woody Guthrie's unfinished songs were exceptional, Mermaid Avenue in particular.

Yeah, I have Mermaid Avenue, it is good.

How about the new Tom Waits, I think Keith Richards adds some guitar on 4 songs, and the Los Lobos guitar player, David Hidalgo plays on it as well. I like it.

Just received the new Waits as a belated birthday present.  Haven't studied on it yet.  Love the CD package.  If you like it, msf, then I believe I'm in for a treat.

Yeah, I do like a lot of wide ranging music, but I would like to think I have gotten better. Right now I am following jam bands more.

Hey, let's jam.
 
One of the most prominent examples of xenochrony can be found on Zappa's rock opera Joe's Garage (1979), on which the guitar solos are all xenochronous (with the exceptions of "Watermelon In Easter Hay" and "Crew ****").
In the words of Zappa himself:
 
A classic "Xenochrony" piece would be "Rubber Shirt", which is a song on the Sheik Yerbouti album. It takes a drum set part that was added to a song at one tempo. The drummer was instructed to play along with this one particular thing in a certain time signature, eleven-four, and that drum set part was extracted like a little piece of DNA from that master tape and put over here into this little cubicle. And then the bass part, which was designed to play along with another song at another speed, another rate in another time signature, four-four, that was removed from that master tape and put over here, and then the two were sandwiched together. And so the musical result is the result of two musicians, who were never in the same room at the same time, playing at two different rates in two different moods for two different purposes, when blended together, yielding a third result which is musical and synchronizes in a strange way. That's Xenochrony. And I've done that on a number of tracks.

Guessing it would be tough to pull off live.

Nah, just fun things for the musically-curious. At the same time, I get it, "let's jam".
 
Guessing it would be tough to pull off live.
 
Excellent examples of really cool interplay, improvisation. . . "jamming" as folks like to term it, can be found on the "Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar" album set (1981) and another one released in 1988, "Guitar".
 
Where's 1? A question that BlackSox and I have asked more than once.

I was reading the Rolling Stone issue on 100 greatest guitarists (not that I agree with them). I did read the bit that Trey Anastasio wrote for FZ. He mentioned "Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar" as a big inspiration to him. Always enjoy FZ when I hear him, I need to check that one out.

Lists like that are lightning rods, to be taken with a huge grain of proverbial salt.   But overall, I think they got the top ones right.  I was particularly pleased that Johnny Ramone made the top 30.

But to rank "The Edge" above Bloomfield, Garcia, Muddy Waters, Otis Rush, Albert Collins, Joe Walsh, etc.?  Blasphemy!    He's Peter Buck with a heavy reliance on effect pedals.

Where's 1?

Heh.    More importantly, where's the "and" between 1 and 2?

Guess all that is immaterial with that Xenochrony stuff.  Actually, it sounds like a good excuse to suck.

He is busy fighting the Bruce Weber battle on the Illini Rivals board.

Mrs MSF and I went to a Springsteen concert ONLY as a favor to a friend of ours (he goes to our favs, so what the hell). I was curious, always wanted to know what everyone saw in that band. About halfway thru, Mrs MSF asks, when do we hear some guitars. Course about that time, Bruce screams, "let her rip Stevie" and the Sopranos guy does about a 5 second "jam" and the crowd goes nuts. I looked at her and we just laughed.

Bruce is not much better, but if Keith Richards was #5 on the list, they must give a lot of credit on the rythem from songs like Satisfaction and Jumping Jack Flash. The best guitar player in Springsteens band is the small little dude who used to have some solo work before he joined the band, and he is nothing special either.

Some people like dance music I guess.
