Yacht Rock Blog #1
Just two days ago I returned from a vacation aboard the high seas, a pleasure cruise chartered in the interest of blues, country and jazz music (I promise to chronicle this bizarre experience in detail, later this week). In light of that fact, I thought it might be fun to explore the realm of yacht rock. Unlike the literal yacht rock I just experienced, the genre "yacht rock" is more a state of mind. A super smooooth, over-produced state of mind, filled with the likes of Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers and my beloved Kenny Loggins. It you're not sure what I'm talking about, see the first episode of this recently cancelled Channel 101 production "Yacht Rock." Otherwise, just go right ahead and "Listen To The Music" of the Doobie Brothers. This is going to be a smooth-sailin' week.
