i've gotten turned on to some really cool music over the past couple of months by members, and wanted to give an update:
album (person who recommended it)
tom mcrae - tom mcrae (markl): to be blunt, the first two songs had me thinking, "oh christ, its that emo crap." by the time song four rolled around i knew it would grow into something i really dug. still working the album out, there are some interesting concepts regarding existence that keeps me listening and thinking. good **** mark, thanks for the tip.
wes montogmery - verve presents & so much guitar (benG): man, each time i listen i find myself focused on another aspect of the music, just montogomery's guitar, just the cymbal hits, only the bass guitar... i can't even quantify how interesting his music is to me.
jimmy smith - root down, verve's roots of acid jazz (benG): i gotta get his stuff on vinyl, draws a big emotional response, or at least it does when i'm not staring into space thinking "damn."
portishead in new york (gloco) - talk about a sound that i didn't think could be captured outside a studio but was. i gotta admit it was impressive but i started losing interest after a while, since i started with the jazz stuff benG recommended i find that my musical selections have gotten narrower. i'll need to try again soon.

Glad it worked out Carlo. That album has a very spooky late-night vibe and the lyrics are really sharp. I keep going back to that CD and get hooked every time. It's one of those where you don't skip a single track. It really transports you away like good music should.
