Listened to 1 of their albums today.
Donald Byrd....charming as hell...he was supposed to play trumpet for Monks famous Town Hall concert in 1959.... really keen to get involved but fairly booked up. Monk goes well, if you aint free for the rehearsals i can get Lee Morgan to play instead. Donald instantly cancels his other appointments and made all the subsequent rehearsals...haha, .a true funk meister WAY ahead of his time, although to this day, unappreciated
And I'm weeping like a child, as always.
Probably the greatest Hip Hop record of all time.
I didnt think I'd like this....but I do.
Something very natural and honest about his rendition...
I ticked like but it made me frightened, it is SOO close to when I worked for these mad fuckers...
Set up the stage etc, helped with all those the runners deliveries to the rich and needy during the eve
ETA, Healy was just as stupid a cunt irl life as he appears here.....
Hot Rats by Frank Zappa. Not on youtube!
Murderbot - Knockin boots mix
Ravel's tribute to a previous great French composer.
Something I didn't know before is that each movement is dedicated to the memory of a friend of the composer (or in one case, two brothers) who had died fighting in World War I.
Just found a very beautiful set from Super Furry Animals on YouTube. I may be a little biased as a huge fan, but something about the simplicity and gentleness of this is quite brilliant. As simple as Super Furries can get anyway.
Lovin' these tracks at the moment (thanks to 6 music).
