Me. Electric fiddle over some downtempo. Recorded several months ago, I just heard it again. Sounds pretty good.

Bill Murray's character in Groundhog Day had it right, if you have time become a jazz pianist, it's the greatest gig in the world. Keith Jarrett Trio - When I Fall In Love (early '90s?)

Yeah, that's good stuff. Really a fan of Surrealistic Pillow ('67) and especially Volunteers ('69) by Jefferson Airplane as well. Grace and the band could really sing, and the band rocked hard.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Most people these days don't realize just how big Jefferson Airplane was in the late 60s. They are rarely even mentioned, anymore, when discussing 60s rock music.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

^ Personally, I am well aware.
Esp. them being one of the earliest of psychedelic rock.
I also think they had a better approach to it; not sure how to define it - more composed, more poetic, more intellectual possibly.

In complete agreement. As an example, The Doors' music has generally aged quite badly, IMO. The Dead are pretty long-in-the-tooth at this point, too. Pink Floyd is overplayed.

In summary of @ohnonot, early Airplane was more musical and not as over-exposed. I'd also add that a lot of what they recorded back then was more raw (rawer? roar!) and less derivative then their contemporaries. They never did anything like a slick (get it? Grace?) Sgt. Pepper's Beatles rip-off, like the Stones tried to do with Their Satanic Majesties Request.

They never competed with Hendrix. Then again, nobody did until Stevie Ray Vaughn, and he was, frankly, a brilliant copycat. Way less innovative than Hendrix, nowhere near him. I still like his work on Bowie's 'Let's Dance' the best, and he plays straight Albert King licks on that album.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Let's Dance, title track, Stevie on lead guitar (doesn't kick in until 2 minutes in, very sparsely at first, and it's pure Albert King), 1983...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHlwJvPv9C0

The Bee Gees, also threading the line between funk, disco, R&B/blues and pop. Nights On Broadway (1978)...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wRM-t7wvF0

Also, I quite like Spotify and it's recommendations, but this is my "Discover Weekly" channel and it's all 30 or 40 year old tunes that I've 'liked' dozens of times.

Alan Parsons - Old and Wise (1982), a gorgeous soft-rock/prog-rock track...

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Also wondering if anyone else likes James Blake?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbUvNFUrkpc

He also has a cover of 'The Look of Love' by Burt Bacharach out, and the whole new album is supposed to be ambient and Brian Eno approved, but I can't find the links yet. My music feeds posted both of these just 2 days ago and already the links, and any mention of them, have disappeared.

Wait, not the ambient one...

https://www.nme.com/news/music/james-bl … an-2822009

-edit- Sorry, not The Look of Love. It's Roberta Flack, 'The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face'. An oldie but a goodie. She did it way better, this sounds like white John Legend to me. I hate John Legend's music...
