Since we're on a rock/metal kick... I get all environmentally conscious when I listen to this. Dio's voice is incredible.

Black Sabbath - Children of the Sea

My vote for best song of the 21st century so far.



Emilie does all the singing and all the instruments. Unbelievable. Best solo act ever. And you haven't even heard her violin playing, which redefines the rock solo.

Second 21st century prize goes to Indonesia's Peterpan. Deepest groove ever, especially the two interlocking guitar players. Beautifully done. They have plenty of tunes like this. They even had a hit in India! when Bollywood stole one of their songs.



The title means "What's the Matter with You?" And yes, chess is popular in Indonesia.

I hardly ever listen to 20th century stuff anymore. If I did, it would be the Beatles. But why? I've heard it already.

I adore Emilie Autumn for just being her... her style, attitude, etc... but for whatever reason I can't get into her music and I'm not sure why.

Here's a song by Yppah. He's an interesting fellow. His music has a nice guitar based but electronically manipulated shoegaze kind of sound. He's from Texas. It's not the kind of music I associate with Texas, but it's nice to have your preconceptions adjusted. By the way, read his name backwards. :)

I saw Brubeck with two sons, and Jerry Mulligan on sax, back in college. The ticket cost me $1.50. Thank the land-grant progenitors for student activity funds!

I use to watch these guys for about the same cost. And later did do some partying with Robbie; as he was a good friend of the piano player in our little band.

"Three to Get Ready" is the first tune on the "Time Out" album. It alternates between 3/4 and 4/4 time and 'sort of' prepares you for the more unconventional time signatures to follow like 9/8 and 5/4. I really like Brubeck's restrained piano solo here. He does move into some heavy block chords late in the solo, but not too excessively. It all works very nicely with Paul Desmond's great lyrical alto sax. Paul died prematurely in 1977 of lung cancer.



Here's one of my favorite "old" songs. I've never heard Brubeck do this haunting melody before.

I stumbled across this version of Brubeck/Desmond's "Take Five" by Brittni Paiva (who I've never heard of before). I thought 'some amateur's video', but I was curious so I listened. Some amateur! She looks to be 15 but she is actually 23 now. No Wiki article yet, but she deserves one. She plays the ukulele (another reason not to listen,....until you listen). I think this is worth a double post.
