A little different than what is usually posted in this thread, but this is really cool. (Frank, I think you in particular will appreciate this.

Very good.

The movie is great as well. Just keep feeding us this kind of music and the world could be healed.

Just received two CDs and am about to indulge. The last Renaissance album and an album by a guitarist called Buckethead.

I have a Bill Laswell CD with Buckethead playing guitar. Hallucination Engine. Pretty cool.


Right now listening to some Ligeti. The mid-60s wordless choral pieces Lux Aeterna and Requiem. When I first heard these pieces and was still young and foolish (instead of old and foolish like I am now), and there were still brick and mortar record stores with actual classical sections, I asked the guy at the information desk if he had anything else like the Ligeti and he responded, There is nothing else like the Ligeti. And he was right.

I lurves Ligetti. Some of it gets pretty far out, but it is genuinely skiffy music.

This morning: Robin Trower.

Last night I listened to a very strange, thoroughly eclectic new album called Cycle Songs[?] by Van Dyke Parkes. Anyone else remember him?

I only really know him through his work with Brian Wilson on songs for the Beach Boys SMILE album; they did an album together back in the 90s as well.

He was both regaled and criticized for the obscurity of his lyrics, especially for Brian Wilson. This album isn't much obscure as it is odd.

Hmmm... a search of Amazon shows he has an extensive back catalog about which I'm ashamed to say I know nothing. I only know him from his production/player work with Harry Nilsson and Dr John. Never was much of a Beach Boys fan.

I like some of her earlier stuff, but can't say as I'm into her music per se. I'm more of an Adele follower than Winehouse, musically.

Well, past tense in any event.

I am rather enjoying a bit of Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer. Gentleman rapper, or as he prefers to call it Chap Hop.

Yeah I know, but it just tickles my funny bone. Oddly enough my son also seems to really enjoy his music too. Probably because there is a liberal dose of humour in there.

This fits into both the Whatcha Watchin and Whatcha Listening To categories, so I'll post it here.

This has it all: Hugh Laurie, The Queen Mary and bluesy jazz.
