Basie Boogie - Count Basie

For Earth DayLITURGY

Inspired by Ultraman Taro, I am listening to a mix of Japanese folk songs on You Tube.

(I generally can't listen to music with lyrics when I write, but as long as the lyrics are in a language I don't understand, I can maintain my concentration.) 

Somethin' Else by Cannonball Adderly. I am not a huge jazz fan but I do enjoy an occasional listen. I find jazz of the Fifties and Sixties in particular to be the most listenable.

I am a huge jazz fan, but that is a great album that I have not listened to in awhile. Thanks for the reminder.

I am not familiar with Somethin' Else by Cannonball Adderly but I am listening to it now.

For those of you who like jazz, I would like to recommend Red Hot and Cool by Dave Brubeck.

One of my college roommates turned me on to it. It was part of his dad's record collection, but it was long since out of print by the time I discovered it. I spent years looking for it unsuccessfully while simultaneously waiting for it to be re-released on CD. I finally tracked down a copy on vinyl in the early 2Ks at my LCS (local record shop), Forever Young Records. It was in very fine condition, with only a slight hiss and very few pops. I transferred it to CD so I could listen to it in my car. Very shortly after that, it WAS released on CD! I bought a doubl;e jewel case, transferred the paperwork, and now I have both versions in the same case. I've got to admit, I listen to the CD transferred from vinyl as often as I do the clean version.

Give Blood - Pete Townshend

You Really Got Me - The Kinks

Continuing my jazz listening from last week with Relaxin' With The Miles Davis Quintet via digital download.  And I fired up the old turntable and gave a listen to the Let It Be album and Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn and Jones by the Monkees on vinyl.

Music Man - Doobie Brothers

followed by

Lady in Black - Uriah Heep

Basie Boogie - Count Basie

followed by

Turnin' Left - Chickenfoot

Shangri La by Mark Knopfler. May be his best post-Dire Straits album. One of the best tracks Boom Like That tells the story of Ray Kroc and McDonalds -  funny and sad at the same time.
