As for me, I've been listening to this:



It's what I've come to expect from Glasper, with his distinctive blend of jazz, neo-soul and hip-hop. Time will tell if I'll give it as many spins as the 1st Black Radio project, but it's certainly in the same ball-park sonically (btw: where's Chris Dave? maybe just too busy to commit to another project so soon?). Think I'm ready for another Robert Glasper Trio project, or some other more acoustic-leaning stuff though.

...and I've also checked this out within the last month or so...

First Jonelle Monae cd I've bought. I find it a lot easier to support young artists who are unique and seem to take the artistry of what they're doing seriously, even if it may not be a style or genre I'd normally listen to. While I think Monae still has room to grow vocally--don't get me wrong, she's got the pipes and range to spare, but I think her instrument will get even more polish, confidence and maturity as she develops as an artist--I'd say the production, creativity, energy and sincerity of this album more than makes up for it! And I hear her live shows are spectacular.


...and of course I always keep my full catalog of Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, Bill Evans, George Duke, various gospel etc. close at hand.

Don't get me wrong. That's not a criticism. Quite the opposite. It's a modern classic thu But as a--hack of a--church musician, I've heard enough singers cover this song (and seen enough praise dancers interpret it...) in my travels to last a lifetime laugh



Interesting. I've never heard it before as I don't really follow Gospel except for this project, so I don't know which ones are the "hits" or not. Here's another one, I'm assuming it's very popular as I see a ton of versions on Youtube:


Yeah, that's definitely a hit (I believe my church's Mass Choir did that one for our Easter service), though not to the degree of "Take Me To The King." In general, the ensemble/praise and worship/Kirk Franklin (at least the stuff he's done over the last 10 years or so) style of music has overtaken traditional choir stuff like the Malcolm Williams song in terms of prominence in black gospel. That's probably overgeneralizing it a bit, but that's been the trend over the last decade or so, at least to my eyes/ears.

Wow, Average White Band! Haven't thought about them in 20 years. A real blast from the past.

ATM, I'm listening to a couple of Aynsley Lister albums. For those not in the know, he's a blues guitarist.

Also, Rock-It Science, by Craig MacDonald's (he of this forum) old band.

Morrissey "Last of the Famous International Playboys". Seriously.
because it's the first song of some 80s originals CD. And even a number of my enhancing effects are on, so it's somewhat fun.

At night, regularly a selection from Radio10, luckily without the mixes being messed up, so extremely bearable.

Recently, I listened to:

[list]
[*]Golden Earring - demo of latest CD[*]From High Definition sources: Ellington, Art Blakey, Dr. John, McCoy Tyner, Prince, Depeche Mode, James Taylor, Megadeth
[*]Joe Jackson
[*]RtF live, Bluray
[*]Black Ice - Ac/Dc (my own remix from official CD having cost 6,66)
[*]Sometimes "WBGO"
[*]

Ah, now the CD is at "Talk Talk"^2.

We play Lido Shuffle in my band. That's one of those that is sort of unenjoyable to play because you're busy trying to cover so many parts (piano, brass with swells, synth) at the same time and none of the parts are really very interesting. It's just kind of like busy work.

This guy, Edward Powell:

He played a show here a week ago, and my wife and I were both pretty blown away. Picked up all of his CD's. Very nice Indian/Arabic acoustic fusion stuff. The wife has been playing his stuff non-stop lately, and I don't mind.

Also, picked up the new Steve Hackett Genesis Revisited: Live at the Hammersmith yesterday, haven't watched the DVD's yet, but spun the CD's strait through about 4 times yesterday while trouble-shooting some IT stuff at work. Sounds great!

I also got the new Painkiller (John Zorn, Bill Laswell, and, this time, Tatsuya Yoshida from the Ruins on drums) live CD, but haven't had the time and mental space to spin it yet. Expecting it to be pretty intense.
