Remembering Ted Hall PhD And Jon Baroni....A Cool Musical Team.

by Krysten_N cc
My Steve has known singer/song writer JON BARONI/keys/harp/vocals for about 20 years.They have done many musical projects together. For example, years ago, BARTLETT worked on several tunes for that awesome musical team of JON BARONI and the late TED HALL PhD. Jon and Ted did the CD 'WAKE UP CALLS' together and I[Jan] was always glad to see my old friend, Ted being at the recording studio almost everytime when Steve layed down his bass lines for a recording.
When Ted died of a heart attack on July 13th, 2010. My story HERE. The loss was deeply felt by Steve and I. Ted did lyrics for tunes, Jon the music. What a great team. Miss you Ted. 
Hall was also a student of RSE in Yelm, WA., I [Jan] knew him from that arena too...'cause we were old friends, even before I met and fell in love with my bassman and hubby Steve. Some tunes that I remember JON BARONI/TED HALL creating and my Steve Bartlett laying down the bass lines for over the years were: 'Dakota Rodeo' a tribute to John Lennon, 'Last Night I Had A Dream', about George Harrison. Another meaningful/beautiful song of Baroni/Hall's was 'Sacred Ground' that Steve worked on way back when.
Ted web page was called BIOFACTALREVOLUTION...Ted posted information about several of his interests there...one being music with his friend Jon Baroni...it was a fun place to visit. I miss it. For more on Theodore Hall PhD. go HERE and more HERE with videos.    Jan

Jazz Hit...'TAKE FIVE' Written By Paul Desmond

Tjebbe van Tijen/imaginary museum project cc/flickr
This is what catman916 on YOUTUBE  has to say about PAUL DESMONDs 'TAKE FIVE'...."One of the most famous jazz recordings of all time, "Take Five" written by Paul Desmond was recorded in the unusual 5/4 time by The Dave Brubeck Quartet in New York City on June 25, July 1, and August 18, 1959 and released on their Columbia album Time Out. "Take Five" was one of the first jazz compositions to achieve mainstream success, selling more than a million copies and reaching #25 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #5 on Billboard's Easy Listening survey. The original recording lasted a full 5:24 though the single version was cut to 2:55. Paul Desmond's alto saxophone and Joe Morello's drum solo really stand out. The album is available on CD on the Sony label. Along with Miles Davis' Kind of Blue, John Coltrane's My Favorite Things, and Stan Getz's Focus, Brubeck's "Time Out" is one of the essential jazz recordings to have."
