Hadn't heard that one in a long time. May need to dust it off for our next campfire experience. Good call.

Do you have a quad system for camping?

A couple of microdot might help, too...

Having gotten rid of my "stereo", all I have is a 5.1 surround system, which is great for movies. But put on DSOTM, and that heartbeat/bass drum at the beginning of "Speak To Me" makes the subwoofer about jump out of its cabinet...

Nothing quite like some vocal trance to relax with.

Well, do not get me wrong! I first heard Grace Jones's version of "Libertango" in the movie Frantic starring Harrison Ford. I liked it enough to buy her CD!

Only later did I learn that it was taken off a nuevo tango composition by tango composer Ástor Piazzolla.

A more traditional rendition follows, with the wonderful Yo Yo Ma, no less!

I already own everything Marley did, and just added the Coltrane song a couple of weeks ago (along with several others I heard on the Coltrane 85th birthday commemoration on Sirius/XM), and already owned all but the Uriah Heep and Beach Boys songs. Never heard of Bon Iver before. So, thanks to this thread my iTunes library just grew some more.

Here's my current favorite:

I guess you were ahead of the curve. Six Grammy's last night? I downloaded her 21 CD last night and I love it!

Great vid I came across of Eric Burden and the Animals. Timely too since we just went through Mardi Gras.

Shortly after he took over the Tonight show, Jay Leno featured an appearance by The Cowboy Junkies. IIRC, he introduced them as "the coolest band in America".

Still applies.

Although I love Diana Krall, I like this version better. JMO, of course.

This could be cross posted to the Favorite Beatles thread, but this song ALWAYS makes me stop doing whatever I'm doing and just groove to the music. Music to chill by, indeed.

Not bad. It's a different style, though I discovered this song through Diana Krall, so I am already biased. And I also like the doublebass notes in her recording.

Here's a jamming session with her band, but of course the audio is not as good as the studio version.

While I like Diana Krall, I've lost my heart to Sarah Brightman.
It started about 10 years ago... now I have all of her songs, and have learned all of the lyrics... even going to the internet to download translations of the foreign language operatic pieces... In my "younger days" sic, I also uploaded the sync lyrics of most of my collection to AlSong. so I can playback and read the lyrics that I may have forgotten. My car MP3Player is loaded with my full SB collection, so I can play 12 hours of nonstop Sarah, if DW would let me.
So Chill? You bet.
My favorite:

I have listened to Sarah Brightman. Her voice is clear, and sometimes happy like a spring morning. But I am really seduced by a secretive, sultry female voice. It's my somber nature, I guess.

I liked the above song "Temptation" enough to research further. The original artist is Tom Waits. People who get out more than myself would know, but I never heard of him before.

Wikipedia says that Waits has a distinctive voice, described by critic Daniel Durchholz as sounding "like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a car." See if you agree.

By the way, a few years ago I first learned of Diana Krall as a casual mention in a novel by Peter Mayle (showing off my random memory again), and had to look her up on the Web. I already said that I did not get out much.

That description of Tom Waits is dead on.

Btw, Diana Krall is married to Elvis Costello.
Gives hope to an aging hippie like me... :P
