What music are you listening to?
Sent to me today ...
Two great artists during the Seventies, who later played with average bands and changed their style and were lost.
Watch Jerry Portnoy (Harmonica) and Pinetop Perkins (Piano).
"All around my hat"
"Take me to the river"
And this one's for @lobster
I accidentally started listening to Taylor Swift and now I'm hooked. >:(
^^ I'd love to know exactly where that was filmed... ^^
Social media music ...
Well that was unexpectedly fun....!
Which track were you linking us to? I love love love Anderson .Paak. Malibu was my favourite album of 2017, apart from possibly Loyle Carner's Yesterday's Gone.
But I'd like to recommend this track from Nick Mulvey:
A very considered perspective, in my opinion.
I was watching his performance at the North sea Jazz Festival, he was doing Come Down on stage. I agree he was massively underrated...
Different Strokes For Different Folks
Riders On The Storm - Nigel Kennedy
Everything I have heard of hers is not to my taste. Just as I don't listen to gangsta, punk, heavy metal and stirring nationalism marches ... Maybe it is cathartic, maybe resonance to the discordant ...
I rather like internet radio for style based choice ...
I listen to a bit of everything. Lately it's been focused on electronic/ambient music, which I can tune out if I'm doing something like reading. But I enjoy remixes of previous songs.
This probably shows my age more than anything (being that I'm young), but college does that
Arabian Waltz - The Silk Road Ensemble with Yo-Yo Ma
And just for the contrast... watch out for the awesome harmonica solo...
Electric Worry - Clutch
What can I say....Amazing
Really liked the Celtic Germanic music @Namada
World music is a great exploration ...
A coworker of mine introduced me to Huddie Ledbetter.
Passed on and enjoyed
Here is another cross cultural offering ... as used by British Airways and other advertisers ... from Lakme (Lakshmi) by Delibes
Something a bit more classical... which I sometimes enjoy especially on a quiet morning
Opera: The silent oppressor and killer of women.
Lakme is not mentioned in the article. Lakme also kills herself.
Reading books from Meister Eckhart and the desert fathers I stumbled over this hymn,
many of their teachings are simmilar to buddhism
"To be full of things is to be empty of God.
To be empty of things is to be full of God".
My music has been 100% contemporary classical for the past few weeks, mostly piano. Artists include Phaime Gow, Alexis Ffrench, Alexandra Chapman Campbell, Lambert and Yiruma. Favourite track today is Song of the Evening by ACC:
I love that 'song'. "Be kind to your knees...."
I am currently enjoying daily snatches of Classic FM; I have just listened to Elgar's 'Enigma Variations; Nimrod' and shed a tear. We played it at my father's remembrance service. He was present, I am sure, in more ways than one.
I am on retreat at the moment. Listening to a lot of music on the hype machine app on my 4 speaker tablet. Lobster retreats are not conventional ...
Normally don't listen to as much music as I might ...
Classic FM or Gold in the car ...
... must give my wireless earphones more of a usage. Just like silence, sounds of the journey/environment ... it has a rhythm ...
I got a James Bondi whiff from it. Thanks
Brothers in arms by Dire Straits today
No link as the music isn't on YouTube yet, but really liking the latest album by Giovanni Allevi called Equilibrium. There are some fantastic tracks and he's my favourite newly-discovered contemporary composer. It's in Apple Music and I guess will be on other music streaming services if you want to search it out. A Life in a Day is my go to favourite so far.
Michael Bolotin.... Avec hair. What an international sensation that proved to be, when he cut it all off!
On a less spiritual level, but damn, it's really, really clever.....
