Same deal with my 70s and 80s list, not a definitive best of, just good stuff. Again, good stuff cut, so no albums by Myra Melford, Gerry Hemingway, Chris Cheek, Michael Brecker, Danilo Perez, Marty Ehrlich, Butch Morris, Don Byron, Jon Jang, David Binney, Sam Rivers' Rivbea All-Star Orchestra, or The Vandermark 5. Also cut was the posthumous Charles Mingus Epitaph album, an over two hour work utilizing a 30-piece orchestra featuring Wynton Marsalis, John Abercrombie, George Adams, Randy Brecker, John Handy, and Bobby Watson, as well as Trey Anastasio's unusual one off side project Surrender to the Air, an avant-garde jazz group featuring Sun Ra alums marshall allen and Michael Ray, John Medeski from Medeski, Martin & Wood, and guitarist Marc Ribot, which is, obviously, much different from his better known jam-/folk-rock work with Phish and his solo albums.
Ask The Ages - Sonny Sharrock (1991 Axiom)
5 Oct 2009, 13:18 by MelomanXXXLТоже решил заполнить у себя эту анкету, увидел в журнале у одного чувака. Переводить вопросы было влом, поэтому оставил как есть.
1.How did you get into no.29?
Sally Shapiro. Услышал её песню "I Know" здесь на ласте (какая это была станция, не помню) - и попёрло, очень понравилась такая элегантная музычка ночного города.
2. What's the first song you ever heard by no.22?
Basement Jaxx. Честно говоря, не помню уже, но могу предположить, что это была Bingo Bango.
3. Whats your favorite lyric by no.33?
Ramsey Lewis. Любимых текстов нету, есть только любимая музыка. Послушайте альбом "Between The Keys", не пожалеете!
4. How did you get into no.49?
Igor Butman. Давно увлекаюсь джазом (среди всего прочего), а его послушал только после его участия в проекте "Звёзды на льду".
5. How many albums by no.13 do you own?
Metallica. Ща сосчитаю... Пять штук, а какие не скажу :-D
6. What is your favorite song by no.50?

27 May 2008, 22:30 by kirkvanhendrixThis, ladies and gentlemen, was a glaring example of false advertising - well, at least the first part. In fact, it's entirely possible that this isn't the best and maybe even the most complete journal ever - so I'm not aiming quite as high, and the 'Most boring, overlong, stupid and generally useless journal' award will actually do. But the number is true - 891 albums. I don't think it's really that much, but people usually tell me otherwise - often with the added remark that I'm clinically insane. But it's okay, even my second personality doesn't mind.
However, one thing really bugs me - all those 'Best albums of 2007' journals popping all over last.fm lately. You open them with anticipation of something interesting, original, worthwhile or just plainly funny to read, and then you see it's just another generic 'My favorite visual-kei albums'. Or emo. Or pretentious indie faggotry, whatever. So you're closeminded or simply not interested in any music other than Radiohead - which is of course perfectly fine…
21 Jan 2008, 17:43 by earthjuiceSince the new year started some weeks ago, I had the urge to compile a list of my favorite album releases over the last twelve months. Especially since most of them were recorded by young, widely unknown musicians, I thought a journal entry would be a good way to recommend them to a variety of people with a musical taste similar to mine. So here's the list in a totally random order.
Michael Brecker (ts) - Pilgrimage (Amazon)
Michael Brecker recorded this album shortly before his early death on January 13th, 2007, and it's truely a worthy last release. Just have a look at the lineup: Jack DeJohnette, Pat Metheny, Herbie Hancock, Brad Mehldau, John Patitucci and Mr. Brecker himself of course, probably the most influential tenor saxophonist of the last 35 years.
Oz Noy (g) - Fuzzy (Amazon)
This is fusion in the verbal sense; Israel-born guitarist Oz Noy has been influenced by a lot of different genres, which gives him a very original yet easily-listenable style…
2 Jan 2008, 22:16 by Gioele_EmperorTOP - LP
1.Alcest, "Souvenirs d'un Autre Monde"
Prophecy Productions, Shoegaze, Francia
Il passato Black Metal si dissolve in una nube impalpabile di soffici vocalizzi e chitarre Dream Pop: dal meeting tra Ulver e Slowdive esce uno dei dischi più dolci e sognanti dell'anno.
2.Ulver, "Shadows of the Sun"
Jester, Ambient, Norvegia
Ambient music dalle tinte fosche e malinconiche, ma dalla struggente bellezza: tanta raffinatezza, molta delicatezza, tanta cura negli arrangiamenti. Il disco più quieto e intimo di Garm & Co.
3.Akron/Family, "Love is Simple"
Young God, Psych/Folk Rock, USA
Le atmosfere soffuse del debutto omonimo e le sperimentazioni elettriche e spigolose di “Meek Warrior” combinate ed ampliate in composizioni articolate e ben definite, tra cori a cappella, tenui ballate Folk, assoli Southern/Blues, momenti di silenziosa atmosfera e tanto, tanto altro.
4.Minsk, "The Ritual Fires of Abandonment"
