Black Uhuru's Black Sounds of Freedom

This release includes Black Uhuru's first full length release. It was released by Prince Jammy in Jamaica in 1977 as "Love Crisis." Then, in '81, after Black Uhuru hit it big, Jammy remixed it for a new international release and retitled it "Black Sounds of Freedom." There's also a few bonus tracks with U-Black riding atop three of the rhythms.

By the way, this disc includes both mixes, plus the 3 bonus tracks.

Been listening to Little Feat's "Rock and Roll Doctor." A lot. That, and "Fat Man in the Bathtub," too.

Anthony B's Freedom Fighter; reggae again. Roots dancehall; these guys (Anthony B, like Sizzla and Capleton) are leaning more and more towards straight roots and away from dancehall over the past few years...which is good. Keep that dancehall pop/rap garbage away from me!

I also have "Reign Of Fire". The "Dancehall" has a place but is not my first , second or third choice. All good with Sly Dunbar. "Jah is my everthing."

Yes, I like Dancehall, but not what it has become over the last 10 years or so. Capleton's most recent was one of the best roots albums I've heard in a long time: I-Ternal Fire.

Shark Records: In the Belly of the Whale

Compilation of tracks, some rare, some previously unissued, that came out in 1994 to spotlight Shark Records. I found it cheap and sprung for it because of the inclusion of a Sugar Minott track (one of my favorite singers) plus the Heptones, and some lesser known artists. Looks like you can find it here on Amazon almost as cheaply! All good music!

The interplanetary reggae brother of Sun Ra? "Scratch" is just so good.

Brooklyn Rider
CD-Seven steps
In a Circle Records label
Johnny Gandelsman, Colin Jacobsen, violins, Nicholas Cords, viola, Eric Jacobsen, violoncello; Christopher Tignor, live sampling, software instruments, percussion, AM radio

IMO, Beethoven's String quartet no. 14 in C# minor, op. 131 is one of the greatest of all time. The Brooklyn Rider version is not the "best" but it is a different emotional concept of the composition.
My initial reaction was not favorable. I want to give it a chance. This is a very talented group of musicians with a distinctive voice. Time will tell.
Recorded 2011

Beethoven: The Late String Quartets for comparison.

Let's keep "Not Jazz" alive!

Earlier today, Black Uhuru, previously known as "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner"; make sure you don't buy both. Nice, early Uhuru set with Rose; lots of dub peppered in the mix on these tracks.

Just finished: Howlin' Wolf's Message to the Young; although not clear, I believe this is circa-1970; fuzzed out and slightly funky Blues-rock, with a capital B. I've picked up six recent Blues-rock albums by blues masters, including 2 by Bo Diddley, 2 by H. Wolf, one by the Hook, and one by Muddy Waters. The Waters' album is the best of the batch After The Rain (Deluxe Edition), but this one comes in 2nd. There's no Clapton or anything here...this is real Blues-rock and not Rock-blues or some "blues" album with a bunch of British rockers guesting. (I don't mind any of those either though, but this is my preferred formula).

Purchased and listened to China/Usa Man Wu: From A Distance (Pipa Music) today. Was familiar with her playing through her appearance on Carry the Day. Familiar, also, with the fact that she has collaborated with the Kronos Quartet, too. That said, this

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rg_iZhUlyRE

is what made me pick-up the disc. Only 2 of the cuts on the cd are solo pipa; the rest feature various forms of accompaniment, some electronic in nature. Would have preferred more solo vs. ensemble; still great stuff, though.

PS:

There's an unlisted bonus track on the CD featuring Wu Man not on pipa, actually, but performing an unaccompanied vocal. Yet another reason to always get the physical product instead of the download if you can.

Ravel: Piano Concertos/Gaspard de la nuit

I believe the music of Ravel might appeal to certain jazz listeners. For me the compositions of Ravel are beautiful and intelligent. It seems with each listening I hear something new.
The "NOT JAZZ" thread was posted because I was curious what other music was listened to by people that enjoy jazz. Please feel free to share what and why. Thanks.

My tastes are all over the place,but this is one of the most moving works I've ever heard-

If you read up on the history of the composer and this symphony,you realize just how powerful music can be...

misanthrope,
Those last couple of minutes towards the end of the 1st movement of Shostakovich's 8th symphony are maddening!

However, my recent discovery is Shostakovich's 11th symphony included in this set I bought recently Shostakovich: The Complete Symphonies - Mariss Jansons (10 CD)

Vaughan Williams: Symphony No. 2; The Lark Ascending - Andre Previn and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

This is the Telarc version which can be purchased for under $2.00. The symphony is magnificent and The Lark Ascending is lovely. I think one can easily go back and forth between jazz and Vaughan Williams, Debussey and Ravel.
