gotta get something resembling work done today. if y'all want to,
list up 5 recent faves you've been listening to. something old,
something new, something nice? here's mine:
1. The Dub Factory: Revolution. Qawali meets roots reggae. ISHQ
Records, 2000. This is a mix of dancehall style dub with a Quwalli
singer doing stuff on the top. a quirky mix that just makes you
smile, and then the cool groove of it all settles in...good
production, not too cheezy. presented by Bally Sagoo, who can be
cheezy, at times. finally figured out how to get that dub delay
style down via logic and live on my mixer. such a great sound.
2. Lalo Schifren: Mission Impossible and more! best of, 62-72. Oh
man, this one swings. a different mix of the tv show theme on the
last track, with dissonnant horn stabs that sound like straight from
a fight scene of the old tv show 'Batman'. cool other tracks like
'Maria', 'theme from 'medical center'', and 'lalo's bossa nova'.
3. Soundtrack: O Brother Where art thou?
4. Richard Peikoff and Buzz Feiten EP. personal plug here. this
disc is a five song ep from my guitar instructor, mr. peikoff.
awesome, beautiful acoustic duo with buzz feiten, who is responsible
for designing a unique tuning system for the quitar which supposedly
has superior intonation. adopted by washburn and a few other guitar
manufacturers. besides all that, this is a great record. richard
also has a new one coming out mixed by LD's own cliff novey. look
out!... cliff might have richard's web address. i don't think i've
got it at the moment.
5. Soundtrack: Finding Forrester. miles, frissell, and others,
with 2 ornette coleman tracks i shamefully skip past (every time! i
think i'm gonna reburn a new mix without those tracks). plus a remix
of 'in a silent way' by DJ Cam. why do we insist on adding beats to
everything, these days? great disc, IMO.
