Les Paul

An innovator in the music and recording world died today at 94. Les Paul was an incredible guitar player and inventor. He developed and introduced multi track recording, delay effects, and overdubbing to the recording world in the 1940's and 50's and changed how we record and listen to music forever. He was also a pioneer in the development of the solid body electric guitar, changing rock music forever. Even at 94 years of age he played guitar with his jazz trio every monday night in New York city at the famed Iridium Jazz club on broadway. He was an incredible example of a man who worked hard his entire life. He will be missed.

Jesus, may I pursue you and my life with that much passion and intensity. 

grace and peace,

Top Ten of 2009

William Fitzsimmons is one of my favorite new artists. His record, "The Sparrow and The Crow," has been on constant rotation since I picked it up earlier this year. He tackles some really heavy issues on this record. Divorce and the death of his dad.

Even with the weight of these topics, there is an underlining hope in the record. I suggest you pick it up here.

grace and peace,
