I'm falling in love with this album. So emotional. Music for my breaking heart...
Man I could not agree more with that statement. Such an amazing album.

I was looking for a good jazz organist and ended up downloading this album, by Larry Young.



Pretty amazing. What really captured my interest wasn't Larry Young (although he definitely does know how to work that organ) but the trumpet player, Woody Shaw. I've heard of him before downloading this album, but this was the first time that I really listened to him play and improvise. Pretty amazing stuff, he has a sound unlike any other player I've heard. He really jumps all over the staff and can pull it off incredibly well, something that is not only technically challenging but pretty unusual for a trumpet player.

I also like a lot of Shaw's own compositions on the record, particularly Zoltan, the opening track.

One of my favorites, and highly recommended. I can definitely help you out with more suggestions if your still pursuing jazz B3 players.

Cool, I'll definitely look into that. I'm downloading a Jimmy Smith album at the moment. A friend told me that he can be kind of hit or miss though, I guess I'll find out.

That's exactly how I feel about him. It's almost sacrilege to say he's overrated, but he doesn't always grab me. I might be stuffing your PM box soon.

Alright, well don't let me down, haha. It seems like you have very like-able tastes.

If Elvis Costello recorded a weak song pre-Punch The Clock, I have yet to hear it.

Despite lapsing into mediocrity the last few years, the chem bros still hold up pretty well and made some quality tunes unlike say Fatboy Slim who definitely does sound dated (Apart from Song For Lindy).

Sigur Rós - Ágætis Byrjun
I seem to have neglected this lot over the past year, but i decided to stick on this album and immerse in all it's goody goodness. I forgot how brilliantly powerful 'Ny Batteri' and 'Viðrar Vel Til Loftárása' are, really beautiful and incredible songs. It's probably my favourite Sigur Rós album, just a bit better than ( ).
