I'm just started it up on the Axioms. His guitar work really stands out and there's a large variety of songs: bluesy, country, ballady, playful... all really good stuff. Track 2 sounds like it could have been written by Mark Knopfler. That's a compliment in my book. smile

Great blues solos, and speaking of John Hiatt, a duet on the track "Tennessee Plates"

I did a forum search, and surprisingly his name has not been mentioned in this forum. I also highly recommend Live from the Royal Albert Hall (Blu Ray)

Listening to Yoko Ishida Shiawase no Iro (Live)


I love her voice.

Here's the Anime opening it's used in:

Ah! My Goddess! Season 2 Opening

I know I’m gonna like an anime that opens with the lead character playing the pipes standing next to a lake. The sound of pipes carrying across a lake and into the woods is heavenly.

My sister played the pipes in our high school marching band. A polarizing instrument, but for me, I get goosebumps when I hear it.

Polarizing is a good way to put it. I can’t imagine how someone can’t love the pipes but OTOH I also can’t understand how people stomach country or rap.

I can totally understand why many people hate bagpipes. I'm just glad I'm not one of them.

Just found this this on YouTube thanks to my bro-in-law telling me about it. Basically a one off jam session of Neil Peart (Rush), Stewart Copeland (Police), Danny Carey (Tool) and Les Claypool (Primus). That's a whole lot o' talent in one room!

Also I just don't get tired of listening to Chad Smith's Bombastic Meat Bats, it's on in the background again while cruising this forum - er, I mean working blush - today.

Cheers all!

That post is a little hard to follow up, but give this ScuzzyEye guy another chance. This is more "musical", anyway.

I think this is one artist that many of you would gush over. She's from Ireland and her name is Imelda May.

A good friend saw her last week in a really small venue for $15! He was dragged there by an Irish national friend of ours whose wife had to work that night. He said it was one of the best musical performances he has ever witnessed. No doubt.

Bluesy, jazzy rockabilly. The instrumentation is so retro cool. Her husband is the guitarist. When she travels light, it's the two of them with a horn player and a dble bass. Full road band includes drums and brass.

The recordings sound retro in that there is that weird openness that comes from two or more persons recording together live. The guitar has virtually no sustain, and you can hear and feel the fingers plucking the bass strings.

She's 37 and her musicians are no kids, either. They are amazing players. Can't remember the last time I willingly listened to a muted trumpet--and liked it!

Catch her before she breaks wide open. She's coming back to Boston next month for $30 at a venue triple in size, while she's crisscrossing the US like a madwoman.

"Love Tatoo," 2007 on Verve (Verve!?! It IS the 50's!)
"Mayhem," 2011 on Decca (Decca!?!)

Perfect timing to replace poor Amy.

Thanks for the heads up. I will give her a listen as your description sounds interesting.
