Post What are you listening to? And WHY????
Okay so you don't need to justify your listening. But.......if you dig it tell us why?

Me? Mile seven steps to heaven why? Victor Feldman beauty set against the future quintet greatness in transition!!!

Bach Cantata 54. Why that first crazy complex chord and it's development. I mean Bach wrote more than250 of these "Bible selections set to music" there is no way he knew folks in 2017 would be digging what he was writing. He did it as the greatest guy ever doing his thing...knocks me out!!!

So what are you listening to???

I just downloaded Jacob Coliers In My Room. I love take 6 style singing. These arrangements s he did are killer. Harmonically complex and his sense of rhythm. Septuplets quintuples and others. Always something to surprise and delight. Someone posted about him on the forum and I've been hooked ever since. Quincy Jones can't be wrong about this young genius.

Love the passion man!!!

On the Glenn Gould inventions does the recording quality ever bother you? He only recorded these onc that I know of and early, I just wish there was a later interpretation a la the Goldberg

Robin Trower -Time and Emotion
Because his last 5 or 6 albums have been amazingly soulful. He's continued to be a creative artist into his 70's. Hasn't lost a note in those fingers.

Hot Rize, Bill Monroe, Flatt and Scruggs, etc.
I'm deep into building solid bluegrass chops on mandolin. If you've never tried to play it, bluegrass is much harder than it may seem, especially if you want to be competent in every key.

TajMo (Taj Mahal/Keb Mo)
Issa Bagayogo
Tony Allen
Habib Koite'
Vue Faka Toure'
Fela Kuti
Weather Report
Nguyen Le'
Sixun
John McLaughlin
King Crimson
Trey Gunn
Greg Howard

In my quest to develop my own voice on the Stick, I gravitate toward a lot of African players and African stringed instruments. They all have interesting pentatonic patterns that weave into the rhythm of drums and percussion. I have always been a HUGE fan of Weather Report as well.... both the compositions and Zawinul's playing. They always had the baddest bass players as well. Listening to King Crimson, Trey Gunn and Greg Howard give me a "rootedness" in technique and flow of the instrument as well.

That's hilarious, Rodrigo! I've got Andy and one Rob tune AND the James Taylor on my phone (but JT is on a different playlist). I've got Brian Baggett's Warfare on that same Stickist playlist with Rob, Andy, and Brian. Was listening to it this morning. I think there's two Andy albums on there though. And Jeremy Cubert's last one is on there, but not his new one (plug for Secret Martyr's Club, which is next on my list to pick up).

And me. I'll admit I've been listening to myself in the car on the way to work. Best stereo system in the house, and a sanity check on the mixing. I apparently have an hour's worth of original music this last year, of which 3 tracks are SINKERR tunes with Scott Kerr, 4 tunes are rocking tunes with just me and the 3 Sticks and keyboards and percussion, 4 are electronic tunes I call "mouse music" because I'm only using a mouse, and 4 tracks are my New Age Progressive stuff (mainly piano, or piano and strings). 15 songs this year and about an hour and two minutes long.

Not a bit of the new stuff is released, and it's just a mix-tape CD at the moment that I make my friends and co-workers listen to. My daughter (almost 15) actually likes one of my dance tunes, so I'm pretty excited about that. If I do a couple more SINKERR tunes, Scott and I can figure out how to push that out to the world, but 3 good tunes so far. I'm putting any and every new tune I do into fractal animation videos, so nothing's being "wasted," but not otherwise distributed outside of SoundCloud.

That's what was in last week's rides to and from work, on the phone and the CD player. I'm gonna pick up Jeremy's new one and rock out on that one soon!

Shoot--almost forgot. Where's that new GEPH album? It's like been a week or two already since you guys raised all that money. Where's my CD????!!! (I'm totally kidding. Take your time and rock that shit out good! :twisted: )
