What are we listening to tonight?

JJ Cale "JJ Cale Live" and Steeley Dan "Gaucho" SACD and "Doc and Dawg" Doc Watson and David Grisman. Friday nights aren't what they used to be in Athens GA but... with 3 month old twin boys and a wife who loves my music, life is pretty damn good.
Yeah, and if you get the munchies you can zip on down to the Varsity for a fried pie.

The Peter Malick Group featuring Norah Jones...NYC...this rocks with excellent bass drive.I really prefer her vocals on this one.

Mark Knopfler's new "Shangri-La"...Knopflers vocals and of course that sweet guitar.

That Morcheeba album is a great one. I am listening to the new Jack Johnson album. Not as good as his last one, but it has some killer cuts (check out cut number 7). Also the new Mars Volta album.
Van Morrison, No Guru no Method no Teacher... oh take me back yeah way way back...

Guy Clark, Boats to Build
Steve Forbert, Jackrabbit Slim

so far...
Pehare, steve forbert? I love steve forbert! when i was a kid I must have listened to jackrabbit slim on my little turntable enough to wear it out. I have almost all of his cds now. The live ones are fantastic. i've seen him a couple times on stage and he is at his best in concert. if you go to steveforbert.com you can get on the newsletter and to be notified when he's playing near you. i highly recommend checking him out.

Van morrison...I just got a chet baker cd with van morrison singing send in the clowns. really beautiful. morrison and baker...who knew?

Sticking with the thread... I'm listening to Bud Powell right now.
It's midnight in Asheville,NC, and I'm listering to Earl Klug's Naked Guitar, Pat Matheny's One Quiet Night, and Diana Krall's When I Look In Your Eyes...I know, but she sounds great late at night.
Gene Harris,'Black and Blue',George Cables Trio,'Letter to Dexter',Ray Brown,'Live at Scullers',Oscar Peterson,'Jazz Soul of Oscar Peterson', and for the wife,(sigh)Nat King Cole.

Little Charlie & The Nightcats>> Night Vision
I caught these "Cats" last night at Harvelle's in Santa Monica and they blew the roof off the joint for close to 3 hrs. Rick Estrin can really play that harp and Little Charlie Blaty can flat out kick ass on guitar. Great evening.
The entire Undertones catalog (making a compilation for a friend):

The Undertones ('78)
Hypnotised ('80)
Positive Touch ('81)
The Sin Of Pride ('83)
All Wrapped Up (collection, '83)
+ some 12" single bonus cuts

A band that went from being hailed as the Irish Ramones (the classic "Teenage Kicks" was the UK punk 'hit'), to neo-psychedelic pop, to new-romantic pop-soul, all in a shorter span of time than most less worthwhile bands take to finish their second video these days. Broke up when distinctive singer Feargal Sharkey left for a brief solo career, songwriting brothers John and Damian O'Neill formed the more poli-crit oriented That Petrol Emotion (which wasn't nearly as much my cuppa, lyrically or musically). Reunited without Sharkey in '03 for a pretty decent new album ("Get What You Need") and a series of shows where they played a lot of their classic material, one of which I was lucky enough to see considering the grand total of only 3 gigs in the States, and were even greater than I'd hoped for.
From my daughters room the giggling of two 13 year olds intertwined with "Panic at the disco." To my rear my wife's friends attention defunct 3 and 6 year olds, and in between all of this I can make out some Johny Cash.
Alex Harvey, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Dave Grusin (Gershwin Connection), Casandra Wilson (Belly of the Sun)
Kinks - Everybody's In Show-Biz on MoFi Ultradisc Gain2 (UDSACD 2010) but listening only to the CD layer as I don't own an SACD player. Still sounds cool though.

After the Stones and the Beatles, this was THE band of British 60s rock.
Mark Knopfler - Shangri-la

This CD has been spinning non-stop (with the exception of a little Tool) for about 2 weeks now. It's fantastic.
The Pretty Things -- "S.F Sorrow" [Snapper '98, orig. British EMI '68]

Remastered-for-CD version, includes 4 bonus cuts of the incredible single tracks from '67 that led up to this concept album ("Defecting Grey", "Mr. Evasion", "Talkin' About The Good Times", "Walking Through My Dreams").

Allegedly the earliest 'rock opera' but a commercial failure, unlike colleagues The Who's "Tommy" of a year later, for which "S.F. Sorrow" was supposedly something of an inspiration via common band manager Kit Lambert. OK, so "Tommy" deserved its success by having more memorable candidates for radio hits, and was more of an 'opera' by virture of featuring musical and lyrical themes that were reiterated and developed over the course of the album, things which "Sorrow" doesn't attempt.

But that whole idea carries not-inconsiderable liabilities in the rock idiom, and "Sorrow" is a relatively unpretentious and very solid single-disk album of good tunes that just happen to tell something of the life tale of its fictional title character. Recorded and produced at Abbey Road by Norman Smith, who also helped engineer "Sgt. Pepper" and "Piper At The Gates Of Dawn" at the same studio during the same time period, only here working with a much smaller budget from EMI.

A sadly forgotten cornerstone of British psychedelic hard-rock from the band that only a few years prior had been regarded as The Stones' prime competition for the mantle of England's most down'n'dirty blues-rock/R&B band, but who, due largely to personnel changes brought on in part by the lack of marketplace recognition, were never to operate artistically on this level again. (A random note: the track "Old Man Going" seems to me to contain most elements of the later Black Sabbath's sound which that band didn't lift off Led Zep's first LP, and could just be the most truly scary heavy song ever.)
Ray LaMontagne-Till the Sun Turns Black, Mike Doughty-Haughty Melodic, Jack Bruce and Robin Trower-BLT. Phil Brady.
The Doors, LA Woman. It's been a long time since I listened to this one.
Steve Earl, The Revolution Starts Now.
I bought a great record today at the local Goodwill store. It's called "Songs of the North and South 1861-1865" by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. It's an album with Civil War Songs including the song "Lorena" which was used in the movie "The Searchers" with John Wayne. This album surprised me as I thought the Mormon Tabernacle Choir only recorded spiritual/christian music, but it's fantastic and cost only $.99.
Tom Waits "In Shades" from Heartattack and Vine.

This is pure genius.

I highly recommend the album - extremely well recorded.
