Re: What's everyone listening to?

Current favorites are Evanescence, Nickelback, Godsmack, and Disturbed

When i want to mellow down I enjoy Josh Groban, or perhaps some Madonna or Mariah Carey

Right now I'm enjoying the silence which will come to a crashing halt once everyone arrives here.

Re: What's everyone listening to?

I wouldn't call myself an opera fan, but certain exposures have created certain interests. I've been to a couple of performances of Tosca, and accompanied a professional singer in one of the best arias (Visi d'arte--something like I live for art). It's also based on a very interesting story of politics, sexual abuse of power, hypocrasy, torture and illegal imprisonment and murder--some things never go out of style :P.

I had a Wagner phase in HS (based on playing a couple of his opera overtures, one conducted by a guy I went out with--talk about seducing my interest!), so got into the Ring operas, especially the most accepssable to lay people, Das Reingold, the first one. Lots of intellectual as well as musical interest there--complex interweaving of leitmotifs, based on mythology,e tc. Probably helps to be familiar with classical music, so I have a leg to stand on so to speak. I loved playing Wagner in vaarious orchestras--dense, hard, loud, kinda of the same emotional effect on me as great rock, but more intellectually interesting.

When rap first came out, I disliked the sound but found the lyrics clever, sometimes extremely so. It's mostly too loud, tunelss, angry, and crude for my taste, but once in a while if I pay attention, I find a rap song interesting if not necessrily enjoyable enough to listen to over and over.

I am pretty new to jazz--probably listened to more of it over the past week and a half than my whole previous life! It didn;t "speak to me" tillnow for some reason. I find the hairy edges of bebop still beyond me.

Re: What's everyone listening to?

Alt-country, not refined enough (yet) to listen to the old folks music!
But I love Robert Earl Keen, Chris Knight, Cross Canadian Ragweed, and pretty much anything out of Texas that doesn't play on top 40 radio!

Ahhh, two true American originals for sure. I remember slowing down Doc's first record with my finger so I could try to figure out his licks & copy them - with pretty lame results. Alas, Merle's no longer with us for many years, but Doc's still putting it down.

Coincidently, local radio station just finished the jazz marathon fundraiser; one show featured some Zappa jazz stuff I had never heard before, pretty sophisticated stuff. Another one taken too soon......

Cut-throat, are you sitting down?!

So far I play the iTunes I downloaded only on my 4-yr-old Mac laptop--whose left speaker I've blown out. I haven't burned a CD yet (I've never done it and would like DH to show me how the first time). We have a Denon stereo in the living room (non-tube..uh, solid state?) about 15 years old--separate components, all Denon--a mid-priced household <non-audiophile> system at the time of purchase). My husband still has his Macintosh 1700 receiver (tube audio), but it hasn;t been connected to anything since we got the Denon system. We also have an Onkyo receiver & DVD player as part of our TV setup with PDSB surround-sound + back speakers. But I like the idea of running music off an iPod and selecting the songs and order at the time.

Care to recommend any jazz albums or pieces based on what I posted? Those 30-second snippets on iTunes aren't enough!

Many of these concerts sound completely different than I remember them, but this time I've been listening to them sober.

Let's not start that obesity thread all over again. Iz's spouse/kid and siblings are still quite angry about the whole thing and no doubt scarred for life. I don't know if the PBS documentary airs on the Mainland...

If I keep playing Neil Young full blast I think my wife may leave me. Have to dig into the vault for some country music then.

Will have to check out that album. All I have is the Makaha Sons' Ho`oluana, purchased back when "White Sandy Beach" was the big hit (still love that song).
