Real Music & Real Estate . . .

Yiddishe Cup’s bandleader, Bert Stratton, is Klezmer Guy.
 

He knows about the band biz and – check this out – the real estate biz too. So maybe he’s really Klezmer Landlord.
 

You may not care about the real estate biz. Hey, you may not care about the band biz.  (See you.)
 

This is a blog with a gamy twist. It features tenants with snakes and skunks, and musicians with smoked fish in their pockets.
 

Stratton is an occasional contributor to the New York Times, the Times of Israel, the Cleveland Plain Dealer and City Journal. He won two Hopwood Awards.

I have always said that you tube is a time machine. Recently saw a Miles Davis concert from 1964 in Italy playing ‘All Blues’. The ‘tube’ makes it possible to see and hear jazz history. Used to be we had to read about it. Music history in general is viewable. If H.G. Wells had his way he would take himself to see the concert as it was happening! And he would not have to buy a ticket!!

Video is great. But robot says Tarra like terrorist and Brandwein mispronounced.

I was fortunate enough to hear Miles Davis in person at SUNY Binghamton in 1971 or ’72. Went with girlfriend at the time, who was a trumpeter. No YouTube or other video can possibly compare – at least as to sound.
