I was having dinner with Owen one night and a friend asked him what he thought of Keith Jarret.  "He's a good technician" Owen said.  I didn't understand what he meant at the time but years later when I sat next to McCoy Tyner at the Village Vanguard I started to understand. Then I got schooled from a friend with the music of Red Garland, Ahmad Jamal, McCoy Tyner, Wynton Kelly, Tommy Flanagan, Thelonius Monk, Duke ellington and came to realize what Owen was talking about.

Even better than Cupcake Royale, is Yellowleaf cupcakes downtown Seattle.  Small local business, owners are cool.  Blows away all others by a huge margin unless you are a huge icing fan.  Most cupcake makers give you way too much icing and not enough cake.  Cake to icing ratio is perfect at Yellowleaf.  

 

Cupcakes pair wonderfully with LCD

Interesting.  You guys know a lot more about who are the great piano players of past and present.  After getting the Koln concert I've been looking for another magical album by Jarret but haven't found it.  I've got some reading and listening to do....

I found his CD "The fall of us" and "YR"

I'd also recommend, "Man About a Horse" and "Cho".

I'm a whore for frosting, but I'm always on the prowl for good sugar fixes.  I'll check'em out - thanks!  Man, cupcakes and LCD-2's.....how can you top that...maybe add sex on top of all that...yeah, that's it, cupcakes, LCD-2's and sex.  I can just hear the response from my wife when I walk into the bedroom with headphones on and a cupcake in my hand.  I don't think she'd share the same enthusiasm for the combo-pack.  Guess I'll just stick to cupcakes and sex for now. 

 

Here's another for the thread - great lyrics (you don't have to listen to them or read the subtitles, warriorant), and the kid can play the guitar and sing a tune or two....

I was just listening to his cut "The Bounty of Mary Jane"! The LCD really shows the delicate mix of the female backup vocal in that tune.

I'm digging Natalie Merchant's CD: Leave Your Sleep.  Love the tune "The Peppery man" on the LCD's.  The whole CD is well recorded and mixed.  So is the CD Motherland.  I love all the cuts on that CD. I'm not going to beg, Not in this life, The Worst Thing, Golden Boy, Build A Levee, Put The Law On You, Saint Judas, Henry Darger, and of course Motherland.  Very soulful CD.   

 

Check out Adele singing "Lovesong" live on letterman.

^^ Awesome on letterman. I just love Adele, such a smooth and comforting voice. I prefer to listen to solo vocals on my speakers rather than my LCD-2 lol.

beerchug.gif  Agreed! Backing vocals on the album are credited to Nona Hendryx, Lay Low and Maddy Reid Clarke.  It does not specify by song. I love his two bluesy cuts on that album: "Penance Fire Blues" and "Sick Man Blues"   - Killer guitar on both.  Good stuff all'round.

Just listened to Man on a horse. Amazing! Perfect before hitting the sack.

post #133 of 1107

I dont know why, but I like listening to Adele in my car, but when I play her through my rig, her voice/singing is irritating.

I agree with the Natalie Merchant though. Just listened to her 2 nights ago. Natalie merchant - live in concert.

Another good one along those lines is Alanis Morssette. Just listened to her 3 nights ago. Alanis Morssette - Unplugged

I love this CD

 

Tony Bennett   MTV Unplugged

post #135 of 1107

If we are going  with unplugged, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, and Eric Clapton were all sublime.

 

I will have to check out the Tony Bennett.
