Rob Mounsey and Michael Leonhart

We love stories. Life is all about stories. So is music. Every composition or lyric is a story, which in turn often is surrounded or inspired by stories as well. There’s an avalanche of stories waiting to be seen and told, around the bend. Leo Sidran is a musician and producer and yes, the apple and the tree indeed, he loves telling stories too. So he decided to create Third Story, a bi-weekly podcast featuring long-form interviews with creative people of all types. We borrowed those words, by the way. And of course as soon as we saw mr. Rob Mounsey post about it on his timeline, we bookmarked it for this have-a-great-weekend Mizar6 post. Enjoy listening!

Larry Carlton & Steely Dan

For Steely Dan fans it has been a blast so far. This year’s tour is different compared to the ones before. Different setlists. Input of the fans. Tunes they said they would not play finally showing up on setlists. Surprising guest musicians like Elliott Randall and… Larry Carlton.

Royal Scam has been my first Steely Dan album. And as such it remains my favorite. Here’s a gorgeous photo album of the New York concert last week, the Royal Scam album featuring Larry Carlton. Thanks to Randy Reichardt for maintaining his Steely fever in such a great fashion!

Welcome to Mizar6, the 2009 look

Hi. Once again we stumbled upon a black hole in the universe, when webhost Lycos switched keys with the new provider Strato, leaving us somewhere in between. We’re still in orbit, we’re just invisible at the moment. It’ll probably take some time before we have figured out the new admin section and we hope to have the old Mizar6 and Mizar5 stuff back up soon enough as well.
