Music!

Can someone please turn me on to some new music? I was on iTunes last night and couldn't find anything. Yuck. Same old crap. Besides the download of Christmas music from Coffee Messiah I haven't had anything exciting in a long time. I need some new tunes! Any suggestions?

Trane is tuff! I suggest Miles Davis' Kind of Blue.

Being that two of your favorite musicians in your profile are also two of my favorites (KT Tunstall and Allison Krauss) I hope these might be up your alley:

- Norah Jones
- Mindy Smith
- Nickel Creek (bluegrass/folk)
- John Mayer's new album Continuum
- Amos Lee
- John Legend

That should get you started :)

This is tough considering I'm not sure about your taste level and not sure who you've been exposed to, but if you like alternative type bands, Ted Leo & The Pharmacists was a recent discovery that I really enjoy.

I'll burn a few and send you some cd's. Burn a few CD's that is, not the other, although it would make listening better :-)

Bill Miller

Reggae Mon, Tosh, Jimmy Cliff, Marley, Toots and the Maytalls

Clapton has a new one out w/ JJ Cale

Tribute to Hank Williams

Johnny Cash's American Recording series.

Zola Moon, Farm Accident

Pink Floyd's "The Wall"

Any Verve re-mix

Allman Brothers, Doors, Stones, Beatles, CSNY, the Doobie Bros.

Utah Phillips

and last but not least:

Emma's Revolution

Yepmo

Another derivative of betmo

(I'm in to making words with the word verification jibberish and making up a definition, fun, eh?)

Beth- Good one.

Cream- You are a smart ass but you made me laugh.

Ole Blue and Yoga- Good suggestions. It's about time I got into those two.

Me- I love all of them!

JM-I like most music as long as its good. I will check these guys out.

Spadoman- Thanks. Allman Bros. are one of my favorites. I don't ever get tired of them. I have those Cash recordings too. They are so awesome.

You guys are great. Ask and you shall receive.

I'm stuck in the 70s, so I can't help you. ;)

I understood Burgh. And I do love the White Stripes. I have them on my ipod. They are good to run to. Thanks for stopping in.

Chuck- The 70's rock!

Don't know what you like but here are some suggestions:

This is not Christmas music, but check out Arcade Fire (you can link from my blog or just google them to hear some). They are hard to describe.

I also love Regina Spektor, a kooky Russian American singer from NYC. You can hear her online too.

And your profile looks eclectic enough to maybe enjoy the Be Good Tanyas (who are from my neck of the woods originally). Their new CD, HELLO LOVE is pretty nice.

There!

Oooo, Gary can't wait to check all of those musicians out. I am not familiar w/any of them. I'll let you know what I think.

Got any Yo Yo Ma? I recommend YO YO Inspired by Bach. There's a track in my Musica Universalis on A Poetic Justice.

I also recommend, always and forever, Rachmaninoff's Isle of the Dead (Symphony No 2)...

After that...Let's see- Adam Hurst - cellist and Jennifer Athena Galatis - "Prelude to Rosa Parks" and Everkind and Kris Kristoferson's "In The News"...

Peace.

no christmas music here - but you must give ani difranco a listen if you haven't before - her older stuff is my favorite, though reveling/reckoning is great... there's a ton - if you want, you can email me through my link in my sidebar and i'll hook you up with some specific titles to look for... her stuff with utah phillips is great too!

bob dylan's newest is fantastic as well.

ali farka toure and ry cooder - talking timbuktu - one all time fave.

wilco - hotel yankee foxtrot

hmmmm....
