What Are You Spinning Right Now? (Mk. 2)


I’ve posted this thought before, I really think Donny’s version of “What’s Going On” might be better…blasphemy


Love the hanging man prop. And the mezzo’s pistol earring. Great touches. And of course a Danish orchestra performing an Italian composer’s music about the American west.


Yes, and you deserve the credit for first bringing it to our attention here.


Thanks Elk. It definitely checks all the right boxes. Didn’t appreciate how good Morricone is before now (although I’ve always liked the theme to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly). And appropriate for you guys out west.


And since this a PS Audio site, I’ll mention that I’m running the sound through my DSJ. :grin:



Flying Lotus, “You’re Dead!”

Jazzy trip-hop from Stephen Ellison (aka Flying Lotus), the great nephew of John and Alice Coltrane.




‘Never Catch Me’ on that album is a wonderful track. The video is pretty good too.


That was one of the top five war movies ever. And I’ve seen most of them.


oh my god. I’m a big Kenny Burrell fan, and this came up on my Roon Radio shuffle. Fekking brilliant. And recording is sublime. If you like jazz piano that’s a little off the traditional path, give this a listen.


Stevie Nicks - Bella Donna - Hi-Res


This is one of those LPs that I can look at the cover and hear the first side in my head. I bought it when it first came out. . . . I had fond Keith on electric piano and organ with Miles Davis just a bit before, and when the solo piano one before this one (Bremen/Lausanne) came out I bought that, then this when it was released. Spent many an evening spinning those and drifting away. . . .


Used my Amazon points so I’m listening to this at no cash outlay :grin: - -

Just released yesterday by tiny Brooklyn grassroots independent label 577 Records in a limited run of 300 hand-numbered LPs, this album is already streaming on TIDAL. Phenomenal fusion of avant-garde acoustic jazz wind instruments (Daniel Carter on alto and tenor saxophones, flute and trumpet) with trance-like trip-hop production. Excellent dynamic range with a wide and deep soundscape. I am guessing the vinyl sounds sensational.


Are you aware that this is the most wellknown piano jazz recording ever (at least in Europe)?

Must be great to explore this first time :wink:
