Son has performance coming up, so been listening to him on acoustic. Love it :) Grew up with my brothers playing guitars, so it's a good feeling when he's playing. He's a natural.

Mostly classical stuff, but also recently bought a couple of CDs - Paolo Nuttini and Jamie Cullum.

Ishbel,

I enjoy Paolo's music....I will have to check out Jamie Cullum....
Just bought the new "Sade" cd,
Sade - Soldier Of Love

It is a whole new vibe from her last recordings. Crazy about the cd.

Jamie Cullum is married to Sophie Dahl. He has a great following here in the UK.  sort of Jazz, sort of Big Band.

 

Paolo is one of my favourites at the moment. 

 

I am re-discovering my old favourites, the Proclaimers.

I never knew that Jamie Cullum sang : "Gran Torino".

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NoLc43YuuTw

 

I have been listening to his music since I just logged on....not that anything I am going to say is going to make sense to anyone right now....then maybe....

 

I was listening to this song....and it brought back some precious moments when I was 19, just got my drivers liscence and wanted to buy a car. It was the dead of winter, cold, blowing and I walked into a GM dealer and announced that I wanted to buy a car.

No one really paid attention to me, all bundled up in a red hat and scarf , frozen but determined that night I was going to buy a car, my first one.

I walked outside, and walked up and down the isles of cars, all covered in snow....I could barely see what car was what. After 45 minutes of walking and wondering what to do.....then....there it was....at the end of the parking lot,  a red camaro , with snow all over it , I pushed the snow all off it....panic set in , like the taste of champagne for the first time, the rush of my first kiss, there I was , in love.

There was no need for any more questions.....I test drove it in the middle of a snow storm .....signed the dotted line....she was mine.

 

I sound like a fool ? That is ok....while I listen for the 5th time of Gran Torino as I write this, every moment of that day has come back.

My first car,..... her name ? Betty Boop....

 

Now I love all different types of music.....The National has been my latest (since M.B) ....but the other day my friend's daughter (  14 yrs old)  got in my car and spotted  a Jo Stafford cd . She said she knew that singer and asked to hear it....I could not believe what I just heard. So I put it on.....and there we were singing "No other Love" together. If you can find "Where or When" by the Dinning Sisters, please, let me know.

I grew up in a family that played music all the time, we cooked all the time as a family. My grandparents were avid Cooks. Both sides of the family , my father (French cooking) my mother's side (English-England grandmother (born), grandfather Irish (born) .

I have had the richest , warmest , childhood. We had happiness, good food, went to school, and weekends were the only times Ii saw my father, he always worked.

While the dinners cooked the music would play....my mother telling me " Catherine, can you make your cake ?" I was 12, and I knew what my love was going to be. My grandmothers taught me , each in their own way....the rest would follow eventually.

 

So before I bore you even more.....I am now 43 ....

 

I have just put on a great tune that I am now listening to.....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hba-rZHv4Gc

 

And should you ever come into my kitchen and hear this , then you know....I am so happy.....

 

Tonight I am thankful , for all my friends here at CT, for all who make this a wonderful experience, to share, to inspire, and learn.

Thank you.

 

Forgive me if I have bored you in anyway.............it was not my intent...... fond de mon coeur.....

I'm listening to the mighty Q107 on the radio right now .....avoiding paper work...I guess that's why I'm here!....I went to a 50th B-day party for a dear friend yesterday and there were a few celebrities!  ...I mean it was a humble backyard pool party ....but I was jumping out of my skin to say something ...it was like WOW...when they got up and danced "THE TWIST" with everyone!

 

Celebrities are just like everyone else and can Twist on the dance floor toooooo!

finally hooked in the speaker wires for the turntable....hit the vinyl in the basement and have been listening to:

Supremes: touch....came out prior to Diana

Henry Gross, Henry Gross.....love this album

Journey, Steve Perry still does it for me

Simon and Garfunkel

Jethro Tull, aqualung....not gotten into all the other Tull.

 

It's mind boggling how young 20 yearolds are playing the tunes we grew up with....Cecelia from Bridge over Trouble Waters has come up at least 3x this past month is bizarre locations?!

* I can still remember #1 son wanting to shock me with Marilyn Manson, "honey, Alice Cooper was there before Marilyn, the records are in the basement"

Or a 16 year old (circa 1998) excited that about new way cool song, Stairway to Heaven.....

"no, really, the album is in the basement....not new"

That hits home for me Shroom,

                                              My daughter was at the SARS concert here in T.O. a few years back and came home the next day asking me if I had ever heard of the band ACDC ....they apparently blew the Stones outta the water..according to my daughter. Well I got the album Back in Black out from 30 years ago and blew her and her friends outta the water...maybe moms not such a GEEK!

I borrowed Paul Towndrow's new CD from my brother in-law. I have long been a fan after hearing him at a small town Cumbrian venue.

Are CDs on the way out? If so, that's the 3rd music medium I'll see go to the fringes, after cassette tapes and vinyl.

8-track, yeah I've used them too, but I see them as a gadget version of cassette tapes. Reel-to-reel, the pros used for a long time as the standard.

post #88 of 544

What is next eh Yeti ?

 

Tonight I youtubed Keith Jarrett because I read an article by Mark Menden (Exec Chef of Carnivale in Chicago) and he said that he was really enjoying the new CD " The melody at Night, With You " while he cooks.

 

So tonight I searched and found this song "Somewhere over the Rainbow" which is a beautiful song period but this time I closed my eyes and by the end of the song................(pass the kleenex please). Just beautiful. The way music should be sometimes, raw and pure.

Thanks.
