Re: What are you listening to right now?

Kat Skinner presents Episode 23 of Dub U Crazy, it airs this Sunday...

https://soundcloud.com/hhh-orb/kat-skinnerdubucrazyep23

Maybe my best effort yet. Genreless, for the most part, other than instrumental.

Acoustic dub and rock/jazz fusion, fine. Labels.

-edit- Wrong edit, uploading the correct file now.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

^Yeah nice. smile

The other day there was a tune by a band called Little Tempo on the radio. I'd forgotten they existed, but in a very easy-listening sort of way, not too bad. Maybe not edgy enough for you? Anyway, there's lots on YouTube, eg:

Re: What are you listening to right now?

New from Paul McCartney and Damon Albarn, Long Tailed Winter Bird...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpWTGOgN5bY

It's official, Damon Albarn (Gorillaz) has replaced Pete Townshend as my favorite living musician. He's been pushing so much material recently, all of it good, most of it great, and collaborating with everybody while doing it. Even Elton John made some statement a few months ago praising his contribution to the music scene, specifically the British music scene. And Paul. You beautiful man.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Zappa, Black something...

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

Black Napkins, live. This version must have Jean-Luc Ponty on electric violin at about 5:01 or 2, but I can't find a credit anywhere. Probably because he's not on the studio release version. That's him, though, I can guarantee that. And Zappa, tap-guitaring way before Eddie Van Halen.

Certainly sounds like JLP, but there is a credit:

I guess vlolins sound a lot like violins?

PS love FZ's guitar! He was at a peak round then I guess - a lot of his later work leaves me a bit cold.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

I always listen to these links without opening the web page; this one was a real mystery.
Sounded like bootlegs from underground bands from 3 decades (though mostly 80s to my ears, since they already featured a 50s/60s comeback).

Second listening now, I really like it.

Opening the web page cleared up most of the mystery, there's two long texts.
BTW, he was fairly contemporary, his debut album came out 2001. No wikipedia page.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

An hour of classical guitar. Ana Vidović, live. She's gorgeous and plays a mean nylon-stringed guitar. She starts with Bach at about 2:30...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e26zZ83Oh6Y

Bach is just great. Will she do that whole crazy chord progression a second time, only softer?

Yes. Yes she will. She does the g minor violin partita, first movement, nice. One of the most intellectual pieces of music without being a mental musical exercise in masturbation.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Right, the last track is a Piazzolla tango. I love Piazzolla, he was doing similar music to what Django and Grappelli were doing with Gypsy jazz in France a decade or two earlier, but I like it so much more. It's much more surreal, and the accordion and the tango just add to that, plus it's got as James Bond vibe about it....

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

Trying to think what fairly current movie features his music prominently, it'll come to me.

Twelve Monkeys by Terry Gilliam, that's the one.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

^To me Piazzolla's tangos and Gypsy Jazz are two quite different things. Agreed about the surreal suspended-reality feel of tangos - sitting catatonically with a red rose and a glass of wine - but I also really love the romantic guitar+violin Manouche Jazz.

There are some videos on Youtube of a private performance for Bill Kreutzman's 75 birthday party. They are excellent. Billy Strings, Carlos Santana, and I'm not sure who all else, as I haven't watched all of them, yet. Here is one of them:
