MUSIC - Share Your Favorites! - Friday Jams

Recommended Posts

Im not sure Ive ever jammed in my life, but Im big on Gordon Lightfoot and Leonard Cohen. My parents played them on vinyl my entire childhood -and later CD- and it took root in me. I dont think Ive ever heard a bad Cohen recording, just varying degrees of good.

Holy crap that is an awesome list right there. I think I'm going be fine hanging out here. I see a lot of Blues right there TecmoNightmare. If you ever get a chance I know it may be hardcore, but find something from Robert Johnson. Hes great...

I've listened to Robert Johnson a number of times on youtube, he's great. I had heard that song Crossroads from Cream and so many covers of Sweet Home Chicago, I keep reminding myself to break down and buy that album with all his stuff on it.

Lately I've had my hands on T-Bone Walker's stuff and was blown away listening to him. You can just pick up on Hendrix, SRV, Allman Bros and so many from all the chords he used, amazing guy!

if you like robert johnson -> more ancient, hardcore, and essential blues - skip james and blind willie mctell...I'd throw charley patton up here, but that is super-duper low-fi.

Awesome stuff, I had not listened to those before.

I was trying to buy some Charley Patton a while back but when I listened to it on Amazon it was in terrible quality, sadly the same problem with Elmore James besides his records being hard to find for a good price (in good quality)

Bach all day today.

Bach helps my brain. Does it help yours?

Bach Works Catalogue (Bach-Werke-Verzeichnis)

There was a period of time when I was in engineering school, that I'll bet I listened to Miles Davis "Kind of Blue" about a million times via headphones. Literally non-stop on repeat for 3-4 hours a day for almost a year. (well, Flaming Lips "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots" and Television "Marquee Moon" was mixed in there during that time a little, too)

"Kind of Blue" is still my favorite "concentrate yet relax" music to this day.

Nice! I need to listen to Miles Davis more.

Miles Davis "sketches of spain" is similar to kind of blue, in my opinion.

And I had no idea that it was "the best selling jazz album of all time"! A friend of mind gave me a zip of a bunch of mp3s 7 or 8 years ago and I threw it on my mp3 player at the time, never really knew much about the history...well, I suppose came to learn that it had Coltrane on sax and Bill Evans on piano.

cool documentary, thanks.

Nice to see someone mentioned Miles, I've got a number of his records. Kind of Blue is a classic, but Miles just has so many albums to chose from, you could spend years digging in his catalog. Kind of Blue itself is just a timeless album that never gets old. I recently spent a lot of money online buying some of his albums I was interested in, this being Filles De Killmanjo (know I didn't spell that correctly, forgive me), Live In Eurpoe, Live in Newport 1958, Seven Steps to Heaven, and Miles In The Sky

This is one of my favorites by him

I missed Friday's post. :(


 


One of my favorite band's of all-time, Underoath, called it quits this past weekend. I was able to attend their farewell show in St. Pete, Fl and it was awesome. Here is my favorite album of theirs.

I was UØ's first guitar tech in 2004. They have been lifetime buds and it was cool to grow with them. I ended up moving on to being Claudio's from Coheed & Cambria in late 2005, but never forgot the experiences I had with UØ. I get the pleasure of working with Tim and James every day now at Merchline and it's like we never skipped a beat.
