InLove and Snoopy (plus anybody else):

What are your thoughts on Sachmo, Lady Day, Ella, Lena Horne, Lionel Hampton, B.B. King and the Marsalises? My parents and I used to have records/cassettes/cds of them along with several other jazz/blues musicians but I loaned a couple of them (never returned) and the rest ended up being lost before I moved into my current residence.

Hi Phyllis,

Can't say as these are people I've enjoyed (or heard of in one case), as you ask! When I was keen on blues I liked people like Bukka White, Robert Johnson, Elmore James and more contemporary stuff like Stevie Ray Vaughan and Robert Cray. Used to be into jazz a lot more too, people like Tony Williams, David Murray and ROVA. Still got some of these folks CDs but my mind has (as ever) wandered off to pastures new, in the main.

Stevie Ray. What can I say? Cold Shot, Crossfire, Look at Little Sister....

Well, here I go again, but I gotta tell you that my husband went to school with him and his brother. I know, I know. First Miles, and now Stevie--wanna hear about Chick, as well as the Dixie ones? (he-he)

InPeace,
InLove

Hi,

Texas must be a really small place. :rolleyes:

I was going to see SRV but the concert was cancelled; I think he'd injured himself the night before on stage. And then that was it....he was killed in the helicopter crash.:(

Yeah--so many artists leave that way. Guess maybe the odds increase when one travels so much?

Well--last night a friend of mine gave me a couple of DVDs. One was Celtic Woman (I really enjoy them). The other was Sarah Brightman, "La Luna". I think I'm in love! :)

InPeace,
InLove

Oh, I almost forgot--

I haven't read all the way through this thread for a while, so they may have been mentioned before, but what about the Trans Siberian Orchestra? Pretty awesome.

InPeace,
InLove

Why do you run?
Why have you turned away from me?
You say it’s hard
To live perfectly
And all you can see
Is how you fail me constantly
You fail me constantly
You fail me constantly

My blood has cleaned you
Your sins are remembered no more
So come on, and walk with me

Julie my child
I’ve set you free
For I want you to be with me eternally
I love you so
I want you to know
That I’m the one who’s calling you home
Calling you home
Calling you home

My blood has cleaned you
Your sins are remembered no more
So come on, and walk with me
My blood has cleaned you
Your sins are remembered no more
So come on, and walk with me

The Noisettes Rule !!!!

Quite possibly the best retro-rock band since Brian Setzer and the Stray Cats in their prime ( Saw 'em live in the 80's. Better than Elvis Costello and his bunch back then I think. ), but then I've only seen the Noisettes in two technically augmented videos. I guess It's hard for me to get by live performances, or at least faithful recordings of them.. But I do think they're one of the best to come along in a while.

flow....:cool:

Hi,

Strange how people hear different things in music. I hear the offspring of Billie Holiday and Nirvana. The debut album is out early Feb followed by a tour "everywhere" !!! The USA will obviously be involved in this!!!
Got my ticket today.:D
