Bookmark and Share Listening to some of my favorite albums I had when growing up, all the way through -- Neil Young’s "After the Gold Rush"; Elton John’s "Elton John"; Jackson Browne’s "For Everyman" and "The Pretender"; Cat Steven’s "Teaser and the Firecat" (first album I ever bought) and "Tea for the Tillerman"; Little Feat’s "Dixie Chicken"; James Taylor’s "Mud Slide Slim" and "Sweet Baby James"; Billy Joel’s "Turnstiles" and "The Stranger"; Joni Mitchell’s "Ladies of the Canyon", "Blue" and "Court and Spark"; and America’s "America". 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.

But Pat (the other one) really burns on this disc (as he usually does!) / You’ll surely dig the Mob, Rob; great Cobb.

Bookmark and Share foper, what Lalah does, on the Snarky Puppy CD, on her tune "Something" is incrediable and I’m sure there are other vocalist that can harmonize with themselves, but this is outstanding, especially the last time she does it, she is actually singing the chord change the band is playing and if you’ve watched the DVD or YouTube video you see the reactiion of the band - they love it ... 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 ...

I actually ordered the CD/DVD’s of their latest 3 releases ... all great and there is a lot of extra material on the DVD’s, which all the CD’s and DVD’s are live ... "Family Dinner - Vol 1" won SP a Grammy this year for best R&B song off of that CD, "Something" sung by Lalah Hathaway - this CD has vocalist on every song and the DVD has additional songs ... anyway this is my NEW favorite group ...

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 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 Steve Wilson - The Raven that Refused to Sing. Excellent prog. Guthrie Govan on guitar...decent player and a hoot to hear speak.

Bookmark and Share MarcNebo--agreed. The Cohens are incredible and this stripped down recording really lets them shine.

Bookmark and Share "Tightrope" by the 3 Cohens which is one of my favorites for 2013. Anat Cohen on clarinets and tenor sax, Avishai Cohen on trumpet and Yuval Cohen on soprano sax. Just the three siblings unaccompanied on most of the tracks. Fred Hersch plays piano on three tracks, Jonathan Blake on drums on one tune and Christian McBride on one tune. Beautiful music throughout the disc. Three great musicians playing as only siblings could. As they say in the liner notes free improvisations, spontaneously composing the music in interplay. Their intertwining horns sounds incredible. Check them out, highly recommended.

Bookmark and Share to sunship. Try Art of the fugue with Canadian brass. The brass sound nicely soft.

Bookmark and Share Ralph Towner, Wolfgang Muthspiel, Slava Grigoryan--"Travel Guide" on ECM This is perhaps the finest sounding recording of acoustic guitar I’ve ever heard. I bit the bullet and went for the Gubemusic FLAC version but wow, this is just some incredible music and really worth going the extra buck to hear the fully fleshed out wood and strings. Reminds me somewhat of John McLaughlin’s "Time Remembered". The compositions are quite varied and run from quiet Towner contemplative dissonance to high speed sort of McLaughlin-esque bluegrass with everything in between. Muthspiel’s quiet guitar tone reminds me a lot of Pat circa 76-79. The 3 guitars complementing each other are so amazing you just have to hear it to believe it. I can’t remember the last time I spent 28 bucks for a single CD-length of music (never?) but I believe it was worth it this time to really hear what these guys put down.

Bookmark and Share To Defoy - I couldn’t find the version you suggested at my library, however, I did order the Julliard String Quartet and Glenn Gould’s interpretations of that masterful work. I do love hearing it with strings; it can be haunting at times. That work is pure bliss in my opinion.
