  • Hm, at the moment I'm loving all sorts of music.
    Lately I've been spinning these albums on my iTunes:

    !!! (Chk Chk Chk) - Louden Up Now
    Psychadelic/punk/jazz/just weird shit - amazing :)

    John Coltrane - Giant Steps
    I've only really just got into jazz. I'm hooked though - I would love to hear any recommendations of more good jazz albums/artists?

    Beirut - Gulag Orkestar
    Extremely talented gypsy/folk music. Sounds wonderful.

    And for drinking/partying - Black Flag go down a treat!!!

    I just bought (gleefully I may add), Sarah McLachlan's new Christmas album - Wintersong. It has a cover of River (my favorite Joni Mitchell song) and a cover of Song For A Winter's Night (a terrific song by Gordon Lightfoot) and other Christmas songs*. I can think of no one better to cover River than Sarah. I know it's a bit early to be listening to Christmas music but I had to pop the CD in. :)

    *Track list:

    Happy X'mas (War is Over)
    What Child Is This? (Greensleeves)
    River
    Wintersong
    I'll Be Home For Christmas
    O Little Town of Bethlehem
    The First Noel/Mary Mary
    Silent Night
    Song For A Winter's Night
    Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
    In The Bleak Mid-Winter
    Christmas Time Is Here (featuring Diana Krall)

    Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
    The Dave Brubeck Quartet - Time Out

    I started with these and they are both great.

  • John Coltrane - Giant Steps
    I've only really just got into jazz. I'm hooked though - I would love to hear any recommendations of more good jazz albums/artists?

    Some recommandations of some different styles:

    1. a bit between Easy Listening/loung/Exotica and Jazz would be:

    Jun Miyake - Glam Exotica
    Burt Bacharach - ALL ALBUMS !
    Roberto Delgado
    Joey Altruda - Cocktails with Joey
    John Zorn - "The gift" - it´s between jewish music, exotica, surf and jazz

    2. guitar Jazz:
    Wes Montgomery
    Charlie hunter

    3. Jazz with strong jewish background:
    John Zorn (masada albums - I think there about 12 or 13 (don´t know anymore / Warning: Some of that albums are some kind of chaotic free-jazz)

    Bar Kokhba Sextett (listen to the Album "Zevulun") it´s just great..
    Frank London - Brotherhood of brass
    David Krakauer's klezmer madness
    Tim Sparks - at the rebbe's table

    4. Jazz/Funk:
    Billy Cobham
    Dave Weckl

    5. Free Jazz:
    Albert Ayler
    John Zorn

    5. Be-Bop
    Oliver Nelson - Blues and the Abstract Truth & Verve Jazz Master 48

    6. Electronic Jazz:
    Gerardo Frisna
    Nicola Conte

    And last but not least.. i don´t know how to put this..
    maybe "general Jazz"

    its "Raymond Scott" - I just love his music - it´s very humorous.
    He did some scores for cartoons and he also was a pioneer in electronic music. (he started in the 30´s)

    Hope, you find something you like,
    Marc aka PinkPanther

  • Thankyou PinkPanther!
    I'm going to have a right mission listening to all that :)

  • Lately Ive listened to The Abyssinians, Ali Hassan Kuban and Sainkho Namchylak a lot. Before that Gillian Welch, Neil Young, Exuma, Ali Farka Toure..

    I recommend you listen to any of those artists but Ali Hassan Kubans "From Nubia to Kairo"

    Today, I've been listening to my Eddie From Ohio CDs. I hadn't listened to them in quite a while and I fell in love with them all over. :)

  • Not that I suspect anyone cares, but the music from SiN Episodes: Emergence is really good. Possibly better than the rest of the game. You can check out some clips from it here.
