first_imgBruce Hornsby and his band, The Noisemakers, stopped by the Jimmy Kimmel Live! studios on Wednesday to serve as the late-night show’s featured musical guests. For their appearance on the popular talk show, Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers treated fans in attendance and viewers watching at home to a performance of “Cast-Off”, one of the tunes featured on the pianist’s latest studio album, Absolute Zero.The band’s performance of the calming ballad opened up beautifully with Hornsby on his baby grand piano while accompanied by his small string section. The song quickly took off but never got too far ahead of itself as each of the six members allows the music to glide along with melodic ease and tranquility. Sadly, Hornsby wasn’t joined by Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, who appears on the album version of the song, but the band seemed to manage just fine without him. Fans can watch the entire performance from Wednesday’s episode below:Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers – “Cast-Off”[Video: Jimmy Kimmel Live!]Absolute Zero arrived last month via Zappo Productions/Thirty Tigers, and features a mix of guest collaborators and musicians including Vernon, yMusic, Robert Hunter, The Staves, Blake Mills, Jack DeJohnette, Sean Carey, and The Orchestra Of St. Hanks.Hornsby and company had been in southern California this past weekend where they performed at the inaugural BeachLife Festival.

first_img“Rod Thorn called me,” Jordan says in the audio. “I said, ‘Rod, I won’t play if Isiah Thomas is on the team.’ He assured me. He said, ‘You know what? Chuck doesn’t want Isiah. So, Isiah is not going to be part of the team.'”Audio of Michael Jordan admitting that he told Rod Thorn that he wouldn’t play on Dream Team if Isiah Thomas was on the team pic.twitter.com/TXI27fRFhV— Viral Sports (@NotScTop10plays) May 25, 2020MORE: Inside the Dream Team with Michael Jordan (Getty Images) One of the more interesting talking points to emerge from “The Last Dance” documentary was whether Michael Jordan was the reason why Isiah Thomas didn’t make it on the 1992 U.S. men’s Olympic basketball team.Jordan denied it in the documentary, but recent audio seems to suggest otherwise. The audio, pulled from Jack McCallum’s podcast “The Dream Team Tapes,” captures a conversation Jordan had with the veteran reporter. McCallum says the audio came from a conversation he had with Jordan when he was writing his Dream Team book in 2011.  Michael Jordan 1992 Olympics https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/7c/b1/michael-jordan-flag-ftr_di21fbocsl5e1s8dmx8cxh0hj.png?t=-526330855&w=500&quality=80Rod Thorn is the former Olympic Committee chairman and played a major role in the selection process for the Dream Team. He was also the Bulls GM when the team drafted Jordan in 1984. Jordan confirmed that he had a phone call with Thorn in “The Last Dance” but didn’t go so far in the documentary as to say he called Thomas out by name.”Before the ’92 Olympics, Rod Thorn calls me and says, ‘We would love for you to be on the Dream Team.’ I say, ‘Who’s all playing?’ He says, ‘What does that mean?’ I say, ‘Who’s all playing?’ He says, ‘Well, the guy you’re talking about or you’re thinking about, he’s not going to be playing,'” Jordan says in the documentary. “I respect Isiah Thomas’ talent. To me, the best point guard of all time is Magic Johnson and right behind him is Isiah Thomas. No matter how much I hate him, I respect his game. Now, it was insinuated that I was asking about him, but I never threw his name in there.”Jordan would add his parting statement, “If you want to attribute it to me, go ahead, and be my guest. But it wasn’t me.” Thorn, in an interview with “Golic and Wingo,” also denied Thomas’ name coming up in the phone call.”There was never anything in my conversation with [Jordan] that had to do with Isiah Thomas, period,” Thorn said. “He said, ‘I’ll do it.’ … Isiah’s name never came up during that conversation. He never backtracked and said he didn’t want to do it from that time on, to those of us in the NBA office.”As for Thomas, he simply added in the documentary, “I don’t know what went into that process. I met the criteria to be selected, but I wasn’t.”last_img read more
