    Roman Candle is . . .

    . . . the best current band no one has heard of. They are really good.

    Check out the new CD by The Holmes Brothers. Great gospel influenced Americana, with guest spots by Levon Helm, Joan Osborne, and Roseanne Cash.

  3. I don't use iTunes, but here are the first fifteen songs that showed up this morning when I shuffled the music player on my phone:

    1 "London Calling" - The Clash
    2 "You Keep it All In" - The Beautiful South
    3 "Sunday Morning" - The Velvet Underground
    4 "Welcome to the Working Week" - Elvis Costello
    5 "Don't Pass Me By" - The Beatles
    6 "Linda Linda" - The Blue Hearts
    7 "A Minor Incident" - Badly Drawn Boy
    8 "Don't Change Your Plans" - Ben Folds
    9 "Disconnecty" - Grandaddy
    10 "Roscoe" - Midlake
    11 "A Solid System" - Pleasant Grove
    12 "(White Man in) Hammersmith Palais" - The Clash
    13 "Ana Ng" - They Might Be Giants
    14 "I'll Be Your Mirror" - The Velvet Underground
    15 "El Caminos of the West" - Grandaddy

    Hmm. Not bad.

    Here's mine and a money-saving tip

    Sonny Rollins
    Stan Getz

    Be Bop in general......I could go on and on....
    Some fusion...only the good stuff...

    New ones to watch:
    Taylor Eigsti

    and a host of other new kids on the block...

    Now my tip:

    Subscribe to Rhapsody.... gives you stream access to millions of sides
    Then purchase Replay Music (one time cost)

    1. Stream while Replay records
    2. Cut your sides----- megabucks saved....

    Nuff said....

    And remember, good jazz requires talent and never grows old...!!!!

    Go Duke!!!!!

    So does your Miles stop with In a Silent Way or do you go on? I've found myself listening a lot to On the Corner lately, maybe it's just the natural soundtrack to employment discrimination. You say some fusion, so I assume so. Outside of some Mahavishnu (mostly the quieter stuff) I can't get into too much more (Tony Williams). The RVG reissues of Hank Mobley have been been a recent favorite too.

    Durham at heart
    You guys are way hipper than me... I spent the morning listening to Van Halen II. Young, alcoholic Eddie Van Halen was a GOD!

    no, nels cline is god.

    jazz hipsters and guitar freaks alike should check out Interstellar Space Revisited. nels cline (currently lead guitarist in wilco) with greg bierden (?sp) on drums interpret coltrane's free jazz lp, Interstellar Space. at first it sounds like utter noise but if you stick with it, it is really cool.

    and i also will add that Miles' In A Silent Way is one of my all time faves. It is the ultimate chill out album. In retrospect it seems about 30 years ahead of its time.
