Everyday I Have The Blues

I love going out and finding new music to listen to. Recent discoveries: the Ben Sollee - Daytrotter Session is awesome, and I really love the Dark Was The Night compilation (which I should really buy - considering in benefits AIDS research). Being on Spring Break, I've been really excited to get a chance to listen to new music, but more than anything? I've been listening to my old music.

I've recently had a hunger for the blues, but instead of running to BB King, or my Ray Charles, I've really dug into the work from the John Mayer trio. Say what you will about him being a pop musician, JM writes and plays incredible music. I have huge respect for his ability, his showmanship, and his style. He can go from intimate acoustic, to kickin' full band anthems, to swingin' blues seemlessly. That's something I can respect and appreciate. Not to mention he's a good soloist: John Mayer - Everyday I Have the Blues

What does in the wings mean?

old music meaning things I was listening to prior to spring break, new music during, in the wings - in the future; like in the wings of a theatre, waiting to come on stage.
