Bookmark and Share Naut.... Excuse my abysmal ignorance re Wendall Barry ! A contemporary novelist of very high regard ( too high to be popular ) and a man of an impeccable ethical outlook. Being a scientist, I miss out occasionally. Anyways, here’s a synopsis of his writing and philosophy :: ’. Berry’s nonfiction serves as an extended conversation about the life he values. According to him, the good life includes sustainable agriculture, appropriate technologies, healthy rural communities, connection to place, the pleasures of good food, husbandry, good work, local economics, the miracle of life, fidelity, frugality, reverence, and the interconnectedness of life. ’ Cheers :)

Makes me want to get my old Thorens turntable fixed and ask my brother-in-law for all the albums back. Something magical about hearing them again, all the songs in order, not just in "greatest hits" or "classic vinyl" compilations.

Bookmark and Share Listening to a whole lot of Yellowjackets. It’s funny how for years, an artist can fail to ring your chimes. Then, at the right moment, you return to it and hear it in a new way. Appreciation is so subjective, so dependent on various factors. "Dreamland" is a truly wonderful album. I also like "Blue Hats." Early stuff by this band is of less interest, but they seem to have evolved into something special around the Dreamland period. They’re becoming a musical "dear friend" instead of mere acquaintance for me.

Also agree on the latest CD We Like It Here, especially the cuts you mentioned "What About Me" and "Lingus" - the keyboard solo is worth the price of the CD ...

Bookmark and Share ZZ Top-Master of Sparks. I’ve been kind of obsessed with this song lately. Something about the very deliberate but rather odd meter to the drumming, air, and rawness of the guitars. A story about a guy that gets dragged behind a pickup truck out on a highway in the middle of nowhere in a steel cage made of "sucker gauge". At least I think this is what it’s about. ZZ at their very best I think on this whole record and the production really stands up over time. I don’t think these guys could have been recorded any better than on Tres Hombres.

Bookmark and Share Still listening to Unity which is still incredible... But for roots music, Americana fans...been listening to albums by Sarah Jarosz (New England Conservatory of Music: 2009) , "Build Me Up From Bones," and "Follow Me Down," the latter on which the Radiohead cover of "The Tourist" is awesome...Mandolin with cello. Innovative and original and one to watch.

Bookmark and Share BobSmith-I love those DMP recordings,especially Flim and the BBs,Bob Mintzer Big Band,and The Bob Smith Band(is that you?).I bought a lot of DMP back in the day.The music was great,as was the sound quality.I saw a DAT player demonstrated in a music store,but never bought one myself.I purchased my DMP recordings on CD and listen to them often now on my iPod and iMac,which I transferred them to.Great stuff!

Bookmark and Share Thanks Hambone. Most of that is background music, but every now and then something comes to the fore, such as Chuck Loeb in this case. Music Choice isn’t half bad, actually. Not sure how the programming works exactly, but at least it seems as though there might be an actual human being in control, unlike with Pandora et al which (imo) too often trade what we might call fresh trends for the "tired and true."

Bookmark and Share FLIM & the BB’s "Jazz Patrol" from The further Adventures of. I bought a bunch of pre-recorded DATs from DMP back in the day when I first got a DAT deck. Even at that point in 95 the pre-recorded DAT idea had been given up on and I got them for a next to nothing right from DMP. After the second of my two Sony DAT decks bit the dust recently (amazing inventions but hellishly prone to mechanical problems) I realized that I had a lot of stuff in that format that I wanted to be able to keep listening to. I found a TASCAM DA-40 (had only 281 hours on the drum--not too bad) on e-bay and am in the process of getting everything I feel like preserving, these DMP’s, some radio stuff, a few live recordings, etc., onto computer hard drive. In the process getting a real blast form the past and enjoying the heck out of Jimmy Johnson and the rest of the BB’s at the moment.

Bookmark and Share blisterfree,,.Chuck Loeb is not just another smooth jazzer...he’s the real deal. I’ve seen him in straight-ahead settings and he can play.

Bookmark and Share Kooltrane-I’m not laughing at all.I really loved Chicago’s music,all the way from"Transit Authority" to Chicago 7.After that,they kind of lost me with all the ballad stuff.One of my favorites was Chicago 7.About the first 30 minutes or so is all instrumental and they really show their chops. They made a lot of great music,back in the day!
