Wow.... not one mention of any of my regulars.
Alvin Lee (the honest to Pete guitar god, no Eric whatshisname)
Peter Green (just about anything along about '67 -'75)
Jeff Beck - Situation, Goin' Down, Spanish Boots
Tony Rice (with or without anyone)
Manassas - Turn Back the Pages, Bluebird, So Begins the Task
Sean Phillips - Contribution, Second Collaboration
Not much popular stuff there, but I think most of that stuff holds up
well even though some of it is 35-40 years old.
You go, boy!
Bill Evans, Art Blakely, Oscar Peterson, Stan Getz, Wayne Shorter,
Coleman Hawkins, Joe Pass.... none are ever too far from the jukebox.
And of course... never heard a bad note from Paul Desmond.

Shifting gears a little bit, The Kingston Trio, The Weavers, Pete
Seeger, and of course Willie.
Those were the days my friend,
We thought they would never end,
Detroit just got a European Classical / Classical Jazz station (90.9 FM
if you happen to be in the area) that plays Mozart, Holst, etc. all day
but Jazz from 7 pm.
Not much news and no political commentary AT ALL!
Every radio in my house is permanently tuned to it.

Way back when I was still living in Cleveland, would catch JP McCarthy
in the morning on WJR.
Also, the station in Windsor was neat.

Robatoy seems to have the most eclectic (de gustibus non disputandum,
est.) of musical tastes, of all of you. Do any of you play a musical
instrument? Zappa, Henry Cow (oh, yes), Stravinsky. Tom
I have been accused of an eclectic taste in music before, but most of
my friends call it a bit differently: this dude listens to anything.
I think it was Glen Miller who said: "If it sounds good, it is good."
I love a good riff as much as the next guy, but it still needs to sound
like music, complex bullshiat for the sake of complexity turns me off.
But if I zoom back and take a look at the big picture, only a few
really stand out as all-around favourites. That list isn't that long:
All Cohen stuff:
I'm Your Man
and Cohen's version of a song that Tom mentioned: Woke Up This Morning.
Oh.. and Bono's version of Halleluja
and, and, Jennifer Warnes' First we Take Manhattan...oh..and Famous
and, of course, The B 52's version of The Flintstones Theme. (What a
great movie.. who can forget Elizabeth Taylor as the mother in law..
Rosie O'Donnell as Betty...Rick Moranis as Barney..just a great cast
Will you look at this.. in my CD player in my wife's office...MY
CD...Manhattan Transfer's Birdland.
Now, suddenly I'm in the mood for some Hollies... no wait.. Ricky
okay, *hits shuffle*
