    Dave Brubeck - Time Out

    Man, I just never get tired of listening to this classic!!!!!

    CSN&Y - Deja Vu

    This is one of the favorite albums of my youth and is another classic that gets ample play time.

    I believe "the toothless man in Woodstock" you're thinking of was Richie Havens.

    Taj has always been bluesy. Lately, he's been the driving force behind the Music Maker Foundation--helping starving artists in and out of the studio.

    Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited

    Bloomfield, Kooper and McCoy help take him electric, the rest is history. A top shelf classic in my collection - always enjoyable.

    Lynyrd Skynyrd - Second Helping
    1974, LP

    My favorite from the group. "The Ballad of Curtis Loew" is hauntingly reminiscent of my youth and the foundations of my (life-long) interest in the blues.

    Sticking in a vintage southern rock groove this a.m. I always liked the funk in the back beat from this group.

    Abbey Road has one of the great album sides of all time...

    ... but Close to the Edge is the pick of the litter in that list. Spin it in the dark and focus on the compostion...

    Went to school with these guys. They started out as The Toy Factory and played elementary school lunch rooms around Spartanburg. Most of the original guys are dead or retired now. Toy invited me to a few of his parties after they made the big time, I even remember going to a few.

    Neil Young - After The Gold Rush, side 1, just him and his guitar or piano depending on the song, very raw and personal, maybe all his albums are like this, this is the only 1 I have.

    Of Neil's acoustic stuff, AtGR and Harvest, are in a dead heat for my favorite release.

    Cruisin' the stacks tonite and picked one that' not been out of the case in a good while...

    Dave Mathews' Band - Crash
    Dave may be "over" now, but this disk shows just how high he once soared. Nice variety of pace, nice lyrics, and great SQ.

    Kinda felt like I bumped into an old friend and spent an hour getting reacquainted...

    Maria Taylor - 11:11

    I won't go into a long drawn out description, but what I will say is this is a sweet mellow album with cool, smooth, and almost haunting vocals. Definitely worth checking out! I can't seem to turn it off.

    Tony Bennett - Playin' with My Friends: Bennett Sings the Blues
    Well... his kinda blues anyway... I've enjoyed TB's style for a while now. At least since his '86 effort, The Art of Excellence.

    This is an interesting offering with only a couple solo tracks with the balance being duets with an interesting cast of characters including: k.d. lang, Billy Joel, Bonnie Raitt, B.B., Ray Charles, Sheryl Crow, Diana Krall.

    Tony really doesn't do blues, he's a crooner, but nonetheless, this is a nice, kickback and relax listen...

    Ivan Neville - scrape
    This 2004 offering from this other Neville ain't no kickback release. I have not gotten funked up like this in a long time. Hook after hook... Gonna be spinnin' this one for a while...

    More impressions later, but for now I'll just say, "damn good."

    More later,
    Tour...
