Left of Cool

[l998]

 

Too Cool For Words January 17, 2000
Format:Audio CD

His first release since the in-concert Live Art 2-CD set, Left of Cool continues Bela Fleck's genre-bending journey into finding innovative applications for the banjo. For the uninitiated, the banjo (at worst) is associated with the in-bred geek playing "Dueling Banjos" in Deliverance or (at best) it's still little more than an instrument for bluegrass music. This album (or any of the Flecktones other albums) will go a long way toward dispelling that myth.

 

I've always enjoyed Fleck's exceptional skill as a banjoist, whether it was in more traditional settings like Tasty Licks and New Grass Revival or his early solo work on the Rounder label. With the Flecktones he incorporates bluegrass, jazz and Third World rhythms to create a unique hybrid of these diverse styles.

[There's even a couple of vocals by Dave Matthews--yes, THAT Dave Matthews.]

Put this in your CD player and get ready to be transported to a musical universe where Earl Scruggs and Bill Monroe rule jointly with Miles Davis and John Coltrane.

This has to be heard to be believed--amazing stuff! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I used to live near conamarra, really nice place. I always liked that song. I remember going into to taaffes pub in Galway back when i was in college and bela fleck was sitting in the corner playing away. Nobody even knew who he was.

yukkedoluce - 盲目の宇宙飛行士 (A Blind Astronaut)

 


 

Pharoah Sanders - Karma

 

Fan of John and/or Alice Coltrane? This record might be for you.

 


 

Berliner Philharmoniker & Claudio Abbado - Mahler: Symphony no. 9

 


 

Cult of Luna - Somewhere Along the Highway

 

I've heard this a couple times before but never gotten anything out of it, while enjoying Salvation and Vertikal a whole lot. With more experience with Cult of Luna I'm now having a hell of a time with this album so far. The song that is currently playing is called... Finland – how appropriate – and it is truly glorious.

 


 

The Dave Brubeck Quartet - At Carnegie Hall

 

Like Time Out (like most of the planet)? This is the other essential The Dave Brubeck Quartet album that doesn't get mentioned as often as it should. Oh, and by the way, the album sounds beautiful.

 


 

John Coltrane - Interstellar Space

 

Need some Trane.

 

If you have not heard this album, it is one of the most orgasmic things ever recorded.

Legendary composer Bernard Parmegiani died last night. I've been listening to the recent Editions Mego reissues of some of his major works to mark his passing.

He was 86 years old.

The live Hooverphonic album sounds good on MOG. I am still going to grab it on CD one day so I can have it in lossless. It deserves it. 


Porcupine Tree - Fear of a Blank Planet in ALAC:

 

Rush - Counterparts
