Re: “Mars Jackson becomes the first hip-hop artist to sign to Pittsburgh-based Misra Records

That is so crazy. That's the name I picked out for my son.

Re: “Life in Balance releases Om to Ohm on Koch Records

Life in Balance: Om to Ohm CD, I like the artwork used on the cover. Is the artwork copyrighted? If so, how do I get permission to use it on a tee-shirt for my personal use. I'm not interested in mass production or financial gain. Please let me know.

Re: “Todd Rundgren discusses his new record, artistic freedom, and his distaste for willful ignorance

Loved you till you put your crazy ideas out. Stay with singing about electrified fairies and leave the thinking to people that haven't spent their life on drugs.

Re: “At Pittsburgh’s Accessible Recording in Oakland, owner Madeleine Campbell takes the name to heart

It's refreshing to see a studio owner that understands the importance of acoustic treatment (the red absorbers on the walls) when mixing and mastering. I've seen too many photos of studios stocked with expensive equipment, but lots of hard reflective surfaces. When I see a lot of fancy equipment in a concrete room, I think that is someone with more money than brains. Kudos to someone who actually understands what she's doing.

Re: “Tribute album honors the legacy and music of Pittsburgh’s Anne Feeney while also offsetting medical costs

Dear Ann and Amy

This is such an inspiring and uplifting story. I admire both artists and their contributions to this country. I saw Ann perform in Western Nebr. and Central Ill. She is a really an incredible talent and great lady. I remember speaking with her at both concerts--It was a great conversation. Thanks for all your great musical and social work over the years and Best wishes to you, Amy, and all your friends and family for 2017!

Re: “Pittsburgh’s Lyndsey Smith & Soul Distribution deliver a new EP

Lyndsey Smith & Soul Distribution's strength is defined in their live performances. They have yet to disappoint me with what they bring to the live stage. The energy that they draw from is akin to what the R&B and Soul artist ,of the 60s and 70s, would serve to their audiences through their live shows. The tight driving melody from the band supporting harmonic soulful vocals is, in my case, just what the Soul Doctor prescribed. Pittsburgh R&B

Re: “Members of the Pittsburgh music community reflect on the role of art and activism in the coming year

Pittsburgh with its Huge Student Population has to become more active and more vocal. I would like to see more public venues allowing gatherings and open discussion of news events both nationally and locally within the city. Point State Park and Mellon Park should be a haven of activism and music. Academics should always be your first priority but change will never come without activism. Be Vocal and Be Proud '

Re: “City Paper writers look back at music in 2016

Attention: Mike Shanley

I am writing a book about George Cory and Douglass Cross, who wrote "I Left My Heart in San Francisco."

You quoted Richie Cole as saying: I blow the saxophone as a vocalist. I tell a story. I Left My Heart in San Francisco does not have a trumpet solo, a piano solo and a bass solo. It would ruin the whole thing. Its a message, a short story. You want a novel, you listen to John Coltrane!

This is an apt quote that I want to use. Did Cole say anything else about the song? How can I reach Cole to ask him to elaborate?

Thanks for your help.

Re: “After finding a place for himself in Pittsburgh, venerable saxophonist Richie Cole finds reinvention on a new record

Good article! Richie has always dug pretty melodies [Richie, remember Duke Pearson's chart of Time After Time?] and I look eagerly forward to hearing these ballad tracks.
