Just saw him Tuesday night at a free concert in Detroit. He was on his game and the band was tight. Catch him when you can!

Jon - I had been looking at attending this but I'm doing Roger Waters in Omaha on Friday night (an early 30th birthday gift to my son and nephew ) Then I'm hoping to make it back across the state to see DTB in Iowa City on Sunday (Jazz Festival - free admission!) So, think I'm going to have to pass on DBGS. I have been to the Sioux City Fest before and really enjoyed it. And It's supposed to be nice (sunny and warm) over the weekend so the outdoor venue should be sweet! Last time we attended this ABB and Susan Tedeschi were on the bill...they get very good entertainment! There are accomodations close to the venue - we didn't drive to-from but walked or bussed. There were good vendors on site, there's a big rose garden adjacent to the concert site which was nice for getting away from crowds and chilling out (and )for awhile! Enjoy, if you go! Believe I read somewhere that oldcoot was planning on this, too.

I figured you'd be there, Sandman! Heck, it's just next door to you practically! Are you going for the whole day or just the DTB? Ever been to this fest? I'm wondering about parking and crowds (looking at map it appears to be right downtown Ia City??? Yoiks on the parking!!!)

Yeah, I'll probably be there most of the day....I love the Ped Mall...lots to eat and drink and the venue is right there, downtown...

There's a nice parking garage just about three blocks south of the park where the stage will be set up. It's a nice jazz fest. I try to go every so often...

If you go, we should meet up to say hey!

Thanks for the info, Sandman! Ok - near the Ped Mall ... I can at least get a mental picture now of area I'll be dealing with and parking garage sounds great (tailgating, anyone? uhhh - kidding...wouldn't want to annoy the local law). I'll probably come over just for DTB due to work issues. If I do get to make this show would love to buy you a beer and say hey, though!

The stage is actually right in front of the old capital if i'm not mistaken, Deb. It used to be held in the Ped Mall, but it's too big now and they moved it...

I'm highly motivated! Will find it! (map show's it to be off Iowa and Clinton ... if I exit I80 at Dubuque St I'm sure I'll find it)

Yep, can't miss it. Just take Dubuque St downtown to Iowa St and turn left. The parking ramp is on the right on Iowa St. The stage will be in front of the Old Capital....should be a great time...

Sioux City is someplace I was reading about just last night. This is not the time to make the 8-hour drive, but someday when I'm on I-80, I need to jog up there.

Dickey's also playing tonight at Summerfest in Milwaukee, where I saw him once before, headlining the same stage where earlier in the day Sonny Landreth and Larry McCray had sets!

My bet chance {typo shoulda been "bets chance"} for DB&GS this summer: 07.13 Friday at Vernon Hills, a northern suburb of Chicago. In fact I was already planning on being in Chicagoland 07.15 for something else, so now my weekend just got stretched out.

Apologies in advance for nothing further about Dickey!



I get on these tears where I read about architectural history, and if you have some interest in this, somebody, you may find the Woodford Country Court House (1915-16) a treat. The architects were William Steele and Purcell & Elmslie. All of them, at least for a while, had worked in Louis Sullivan's firm in Chicago, with George Elmslie--the chief designer of the courthouse--staying the longest. Elmslie is considered by many to be second only to Frank Lloyd Wright (another Sullivan protege) among Prairie School architects, in terms of the originality and beauty of the spaces and facades he designed.

In fact, when Wright seemed professionally MIA for much of the 1910s, Purcell & Elmslie was considered the greatest firm for progressive architecture. This was a time when the prevailing architecture dominating the East Coast and the profession in general was a rehashing of unoriginal historical styles, slapped onto the new oversized buildings, like the same old classical for government buildings and Gothic for colleges and churches.

From what I was reading last night, Sullivanesque: Urban Architecture and Ornamentation, by Ronald E. Schmitt, 2002:
"George Grant Elmslie . . . attended Chicago public schools untill 1888, when he began working for the architect Joseph Lyman Silsbee. Frank Lloyd Wright was also employed with Silsbee at the time. After Wright left Silsbee to join Adler & Sullivan, Wright suggested the firm hire Elmslie. in 1889 Elmslie became employed by Adler & Sullivan and worked closely with Wright. After Wright left the firm, Elmslie became chief draftsman and remained in that capacity with Sullivan after Adler's departure. While with Sullivan, Elmslie developed much of Sullivan's ornament."

Sandman, Elmslie's last project with Sullivan was the People's Savings Bank (1909-11) in Cedar Rapids. This project was a huge disappointment for Sullivan, since the clients rejected Sullivan's design and demanded a new one that was well stripped down of ornament. Sullivan quit the project but was convinced to do a second design. When Sullivan was asked for a more economical second design for CR's St. Paul's Methodist Church (1913-14), this time he totally quit the project. The church hired another architect to basically complete the church according to Sullivan's design but without the ornament. Somehow, Elmslie also got signed on as a consulting architect and managed to preserve as much of Sullivan's intentions as possible.



By "ornament" is meant decorative touches like the terra cotta banding, pier capitals, and eagle here on the Woodford Co. CH. But look how clean and interesting the design lines would be even without such embellishments to enhance them!

John Warner Norton (whose work later abounded in Art Deco buildings in Chicago) painted tremendous murals for the courthouse.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_W._Norton
I've never seen these Chicago murals:
http://www.artic.edu/aic/education/mural_project/pages/M_peirce.html

Alfonso Iannelli did the sculpture. He had worked with Wright (who seems to have deprived Iannelli of proper credit), and it's his later Rock of Gibraltar that's carved into the side of Chicago's original Prudential Building at the head of the downtown parks (Grant, Millenium, etc.):
http://www.architechgallery.com/arch_info/artists_pages/iannelli_bio.html



Talk about Elmsliesque ornament! "Detail, terra cotta beneath eave"

"Designed through debilitating overwork by Elmslie, the functional organization of the court house was enriched with vast quantities of polychrome terra cotta, leaded glass, mosaics, and metalwork. While Purcell did not participate directly in the design process, he was responsible for coordinating the work of contributing artists. Since the fee asked by Gutzon Borglum was more than available for a sculptor, Purcell engaged Alphonso Iannelli, a former student of Borglum who had just opened his own studio in Chicago. For a frugal thirty-five hundred dollars Iannelli executed massive frieze groups symbolizing democratic forms of justice to surmount the principal entrances and whimsically added cow and buffalo heads over the alleyway service dock. On wide, overhanging balconies surrounding the artificially lit, glass-domed lobby, artist John W. Norton painted murals to represent the Elysian richness of the countryside."
--Partner William Purcell, who wrote quite a bit about their projects, those of others, and architecture in general

Hey Peter, saw Sonny for free in Kansas City ( Parkville) a few weeks ago.
I think I'll try to make the trip up to Sioux City and see BB and Dickey on Saturday.
Dickey is here in Dallas Monday night and most likely will make it to that one also.
8 hours, cmon Peter its not that bad...me....1/2 hour drive to airport, 1/2 hour from parking bus to terminal, 1 hour wait inside gate, 2 hour flight, 1/2 hour to car rental at Omaha airport, approx 2 hour drive to Sioux City, 1 hour finding the venue ...that totals....hmmmm...cmon Jethro help me.....7 hours !
If I get on the PeterNelson Sioux City Architecual tour....no telling how many hours this may go on.

When in Omaha, eat at China Buffet and Mongolian Grill....one at 145th and Maple, one at maybe 110th and West Dodge and a new one closer to downtown. Tell, Xiu, Hong and May I said "Hey" if you cross paths with any of them.
Mention me to Xiu and watch your meal price increase 100 percent !

heh heh...just kidding, Xiu is very cool...dear once upon a time friend. I may try to stop in at one of the locations and say hey to them.

LOL - thanks for the tip, Hai! I'll have to ask my son if he's familiar with these places ... he manages a couple of restaurants in the area so may know these guys. Believe we're going to try the Bonefish Grill for some seafood before our Roger show. Hey - have fun at the Sioux City Fest!!!

Man I may even stay and try to make it to the dTb thang, I scheduled a vacation day for Monday. I'll have to do some internetting it looks like.

Omaha is an interesting restaurant city, I was told that there were more restaurants there per capita than in any other city in the USA and that yu could eat breakfast, lunch and dinner out for 2 years straight and never eat at the same place twice. Don't people cook up there ?

Well, the DTB thing in Ia City is pretty much a straight shot on I-80 out Omaha if you have a rental (and it is free!) You would be looking at about 3 1/2 hour drive from Omaha to Ia City. Here's the website: http://www.summerofthearts.org/jazzfest/ and make sure you let Sandman know if you're going to be there because he will for sure be there (and I'm trying every trick I can think of to make it myself!)

Interesting factiod about Omaha and it's restaurants...I did not know that (althought I've eaten in a lot of different places while visiting there). And yes - I cook when there is somebody besides myself around to cook for.
