A low layer of smoke drifted across the dimly lit stage and a haunting prelude on the organ signaled the beginning of an amazing event. The silhouette of a man approaching the grand piano, stage right, was all the crowd needed to go wild.

SOFT is an album with effortless shifts from rock to pop to a fusion of genres -- but then again, what is pop and what is rock? In Rathborne's world there are no restrictions -- sound is sound, music is music, and sincerity inhabits each track, cutting straight through.

There is a space where existential nuance and personal confession all exist in the rhythms of a dreamscape universe. This is the world of Pell, and with his recent album Floating While Dreaming, he transports us to a universe of varied influences manifested in ambient sounds and serious hip-hop grooves.

In a very fun and off-the-cuff interview, I met with funny man, Jeff Mauro, host of "The Sandwich King" and "The Kitchen," and Phillip Phillips whose platinum album, "The World from the Side of the Moon" sold 9 Million copies after he won the 11th season of American Idol.

As soon as the band comes on, I see a better portion of the audience bust out their camera phones and hold them up for (most of) the performance, snapping photos and taking video. They're blocking the person behind them, looking up at their phone instead of at the human beings playing live music in front of them.

Cynical music fans like to talk about the things that aren't happening today; things that aren't happening in jazz, that aren't happening in R&B. A few months ago, I was invited to witness what was happening at New York's Joe's Pub, in the person of recording artist, Somi.

After about three and a half decades of listening to his music, I saw and heard Billy Joel perform live recently at Fenway Park. Even though it was a stadium show, the sound proved stunningly sharp. His voice was strong and the lyrics quite clear. The audience, however, puzzled me.

OK, so the five of us, all over 50 or spiraling rapidly toward it, were a bit rusty in the live rock and roll blowout department. Hence our collective idea to relive our youths by attending a Boston/Doobie Brothers concert.

Sometimes our wishes come true; other times things simply do not go as we would like them to. Who didn't fail at least once in his life? These are not tragedies, they are hardships. You keep on trying your best until you succeed.
