Concert Recommendation: Mr. Scruff, Metro, Friday, October 24
In one of proudest moments in my career as a music librarian, I was
able to answer the question, "What's that song that's used in the
Lincoln Navigator commercials?" I had been exposed to the commercials,
and therefore the song, innumerable times because Lincoln Navigator was
a major sponsor of cycling coverage on OLN last year, and OLN provides
lots of cycling coverage. I was already familiar with music of
semi-obscure jazz musician Moondog, the fortuitous result of being on
Atlantic Records' mailing list in the mid '90s. One Google search for
"Lincoln Navigator Moondog" later, I discovered it was "Get a Move On"
by Mr. Scruff, who will be hitting the Metro tomorrow night.
I subsequently found out about Music
from TV Commercials, an index that answers many such questions.
Mr. Scruff plays with DJ Spinna the Metro, 3730 N. Clark, Chicago, on
Friday, October 24 at 10 p.m.
