Re: What are you listening to right now?

Jeff Beck has been in heavy rotation constantly for the last year or so, one of rack and jazz's greatest guitarists and he seems to keep getting better and better. Live, 2018, covering The Beatles...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yw7J5R9pQQ

Vinny Colliuta, drums and Tal Wilkenfeld, bass (spelling on both of those names?).

-edit- Same song, same line-up, different venue, different version and much, much better sound quality...

Wynton Kelly does amazing playing on Freddy The Freeloader, I think the rest is all Bill. Evans is really at his best on quiet pieces, I think. Blue In Green (Miles Davis, Bill Evans, John Coltrane, early March, 1959)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoPL7BExSQU

Evans' little solo after Trane's that gets picked up by Miles and back to the top, and then the piano outro to finish, is just sublime.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

As is often the case in Zappa, the great music is hidden behind the humor. There is nothing funny about the eight bars starting at 1:47, that stuff jams.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Today a photo collection sparked off a whole slew of YouTube links which won't be finished by bedtime. Anyway right now I'm listening to "Fighting Against Convictions" from the wonderful album "Black Heart Man" by Bunny Wailer. Just love this. Have I posted it before? Anyway:

Thanks for the link, I haven't heard it before. I'm halfway through track one and I love it, awesome keyboard sounds! I'm going to play the whole record.

Today was a sunny but raw and windy day to be a bicycle courier. A few IPAs, some coughing and this record will chill my body right out.

This is one of the best videos ever posted here. Well played, sir!

@johnraff, speaking of reggae and not remembering posts, here's something I've probably posted but don't remember!

Spacemonkeyz vs Gorillaz - Laika Come Home (2002)

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P … vD9oP5oO-L

The story is that Spacemonkeyz released a single dub-cover of a Gorillaz track, then Damon Albarn from Gorillaz heard it, contacted the band and asked them to remix the whole Gorillaz album, to which they replied something along the lines of "Uuuuuhhh... ... HELL YES!!!", and thus a dub album.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

^ That and the Mad Professor remix of the Massive Attack' album Protection, which I know I've posted but will do so again, are my favorite dub albums. Black Uhuru has some amazing dub, but I like that the source material in these dubs is not reggae, though in both cases it is reggae influenced.

Almost the same story. Massive Attack contacted Mad Professor for a remix, he did one, they liked it and asked for more.

Mad Professor - No Protection (1995)

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P … wW7lIvZ6h5

Yeah, that's definitely my favorite dub. Massive Attack with Tracey Thorn, and The Professor is tweaking the heck out of it. Cool Monsoon, Quiet Storm (16:56 in the next link, if you don't want to hear the whole album), either version is amazing except Mad Professor's is ten times more so, maybe 20.

Sven Vath at the Boiler Room, Berlin, 2012

First 5 minutes are a bit boring but after that it starts getting great

Interestingly this is a short clip of Sven Vath
playing to a crowd of 500,000 people
at the Berlin Love Parade some years earlier
I was actually there at this event
He looks so different
This is just a genius set

Not all nostalgia now they just released a new album called "And Nothing Hurt".
It's up there with the best of em. I just cant wait to see an interview with Jason Spaceman about it. He's obviously thinking about the past in this one because "hurt" as opposed to "hurts". Sorry I may have forgot to say I have spent decades listening to spiritualized I rarely go more than 3 or 4  days without listening to them

Oh and  Jah Wobble on  the public Image, Metal Box album is just unbelievably great. He also did that stuff where he was reciting those William Blake poems

Wedding present - George Best Album
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9dLUHqrB8nc

I love these lyrics

I wonder what our kid has bought her
I think I'll try & unwrap a corner
He didn't spend that much in the end
He doesn't think that highly of his friends
I've wanted one of those for years
That was until I got it here
On second thoughts, I don't think I like it
But if it's for sale someone will buy it
I can't think just what I wanted it for

Re: What are you listening to right now?

I have a great admiration of the work of Laurie Anderson
Most people only know of her for being married to Lou Reed
but I have been following her career since 1978
I genuinely believe that, along with Kraftwerk, Phillip Glass, and Gary Numan
her work helped create minimal techno, tech house, and other dancefloor genres
that rely on great knowledge of synthesised music.
Anderson goes beyond music though. She is one of the worlds truly great story tellers
and is also a renowned visual artist. I wanted to share these videos with you guys
who care about music. Listen to her stories she is great and tells a story about
our technological age
heres a great joke she wrote - it's hilarious and yet very thoughtful it's about contraception - I love the punchline
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SirOxIeuNDE

For all you BASIC programmers
10 let x = x
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7H3-4uzb2k

Here is a gig she did and I was in the audience
She was in a different room just above us
and this is her in her 70's reflecting on the world
she talks about the books and music and funny things that inspired her
This is a true genius
please enjoy this
A Room For London
I SAW THIS LIVE - I WAS THERE
part 3 is the most interesting so I thought i would show you that
Listen, please, to her observation of people in the digital age
it will make you realise how the digital is not just intellectual, it is emotional
It's about a girl who talks in digitalese and communicates with a digital rabbit with gestures
part 3

Re: What are you listening to right now?

But Byrne and Eno had that stuff and more already in '81. I was a freshman at music conservatory, drugs were involved, and a few incidents occurred. Thankfully, I was just a witness.

I remember a very tall, handsome, half-naked black man with a big afro and an African spear (I know his name but will withhold it, he is a genius sax player and musician with a successful career who, as a 20 year old college student in a dormitory full of idiots, guessed what we were up to, heard the music and grabbed the opportunity to mess with our minds), grinning in the doorway of the dorm room as the bass from the stereo pulsed. One girl screamed, ran into the bathroom and wouldn't come out for over an hour. Would not recommend.
