I was in more of a relaxed mood this evening, although I'm winding things up with Horace Silver (Song for my Father).Wow thats kind of a relaxing change of pace
Thanks for sharing Rudy very enjoyable I love all kinds of instrumental music and this fits very nicely thanks again for introducing me to some new sounds ( at least new to me)I was in more of a relaxed mood this evening, although I'm winding things up with Horace Silver (Song for my Father).
You'd probably like Four80East if you haven't checked them out yet. Nocturnal is probably my favorite, if I had to pick one album out of the bunch, but the just released Cherry Picked this year which is their first anthology. I also missed it, but they released a new album last March, Straight Round.
The first track off of Nocturnal:
I was somewhat amazed when I started digging through their own YouTube account--they have their entire catalog of albums posted for listening. Of their albums, I've played the heck out of Nocturnal and En Route. Although I like all of them. Their style fits many things including groove, acid jazz, funk, house, maybe even ambient. It's that mash-up I enjoy, and it's kind of a unique style they've created for themselves. (Their history is in remixes for other artists, so this side-project kind of turned into a major gig for them, having been around for 21 years now.)Thanks for sharing Rudy very enjoyable I love all kinds of instrumental music and this fits very nicely thanks again for introducing me to some new sounds ( at least new to me)
I've queued it up in Qobuz to listen to later. Been a while since I've played any Matt Bianco.I'm enjoying the latest Matt Bianco album - "Matt Bianco and New Cool Collective - High Anxiety" - released late last year, and available on Bandcamp ...
Al Stewart also was a Guest artist on the Smooth Jazz group Windows Album " The French Laundry" he Sang on the title Track one of their best early albums IMOBack when Basia's second album first came out, one of the local stations was playing "Half A Minute" from Whose Side Are You On? regularly.
I knew that Peter White, who played on her recordings, also had his own solo career in contemporary jazz. The times I saw her in concert was around the time his first album came out. What I didn't realize until a few years later, when I started listening to Al Stewart, is that Peter White was the guitarist on those earlier albums like Year of the Cat and Time Passages. That explained why the guitar sounded familiar.
Sounds suspiciously like the Whistle-Stop Song from Walt Disney's Robin Hood, written by Roger Miller.I've been sending this to random speakers in the house today...
(So yeah, it's from the same duo who make up Four80East. Rob DeBoer is performing the sped-up vocals and keyboards; Tony Grace is doing the rap and percussion. Literally a world of difference!)
Disney didn't allow them to use their original recording, so they made their own.Sounds suspiciously like the Whistle-Stop Song from Walt Disney's Robin Hood, written by Roger Miller.
