Superb Diane, thanks. I gave in and downloaded the entire Coke studio album which has two songs by these guys. Some of the comments below were hilarious - they go crazy about this stuff in the sub continent. 16 and a half minutes all on a silly bracelet and it didnt even look like they got it back in the end.

Well, in one of my rare breaks from Leonard Cohen's music, I have been listening to The American Decca Recordings Vol 1 by Andres Segovia. (I do not much like other singers...)

The Coke Studio album from which Diane posted the qawwali fusion track is kind of hit and miss - some great tracks and some I didnt really care for much. Here is another really great song - not qawwal - which ends with a spoken word poem. The language is very poetic and very pure.

Thanks Diane for bringing this Coke Studio fusion music to my attention.

gorgeous, Kush! I'd only downloaded the two Coke Studio pieces by Fareed Ayaz & Abu Muhammad, so hadn't heard that.

Just to mention I saw Jack Bruce and his Big Blues Band last night, and they were fabulous. Jack was in fine voice, still (he is 68), and, naturally, performed some intense extended bass riffs to die for. What beats live?

Approaching the land of nod:

Arvo Pärt: Salve Regina

It's wonderful that I can place Leonard , Johann and Arvo in the same category.

Sleep well.

All the best,

The Waterboys An Appointment with Mr Yeats - one of my Xmas presents to myself - just brilliant.

Hi Diane, could not agree more. We saw the Waterboys in the Summer in Finsbury Park at the London Feis (formally the Fleadh) where they played a sample of this album in amongst the Waterboys classics.
Like you, I also received, "An Appointment with Mr Yeats" as a Christmas present. Since then, last month, we saw the Waterboys live at Liverpool Philharmonic, where Mike Scott devoted the second half of the show to this album. Fantastic played live. I have put together a short review, of the concert, in the Other Music section. My review falls well short of some of our more eloquent contributors on this forum, and probably does not fully do the experience justice, but I felt the need to put something down in writing to spread the word.

Regards,

Scott

You must know that when Leonard conceived a song in Cmaj called Hallelujah, with it's minor falls and major lifts, he created something of a problem for others.
LC has not only used the triad, but also the 4th and the 5th. There is very little left over in C. :(
So --- Here's a Nilsson song (picked entirely in the leftover C7). :shock: :lol:

Nelson Bragg's "We Get What We Want": http://www.nelsonbragg.com/

Since I'm plugging this album everywhere, here's my review:

Oh my God...this is phenomenal! I've just played the new album by Nelson Bragg (of the Brian Wilson Band) for the first time and I'm totally blown away by it. "You Get What You Want" captures everything that is best about power-pop, Beatles (think "And Your Bird Can Sing"), the Byrds "Notorious Byrds Brothers" , C,S,N,& Y, and every piece of great West Coast music that you've ever heard! In fact, I haven't heard a better album of its ilk since the 1960s. It's full of gorgeous melodies, harmonies, jangly guitar, piano, and trumpet (from Probyn Gregory - also of the Brian Wilson Band) plus all sorts of inventive musicianship. I've been carried along from start to finish by the sheer momentum of it. There's not one weak track, and it includes a version of Brian Wilson's "Baby Let Your Hair Grown Long" that (dare I say it) is even better than Brian's own version. Three of the greatest tracks come towards the end...namely "I'm In No Mood" (a potentional single?), "Welcome to Nowhereville" and "Time and Tyde Agree". I was literally crying tears of joy by the time I got to these. This is more than a worthy successor to the excellent "Tangle Free World" album that Nelson produced for Anny Celsi, and it's light years ahead of his own first album (which contained two classics in "Forever Days" and "Death of Caroline"). Do yourself a favour - order this album NOW! You can also listen to samples from it.

I have the new Luka Bloom record 'This New Morning' on repeat at the moment.

Love it, and just about everything he's ever done.
