anything by Kelly Joe Phelps - not new, but a sadly under appreciated musician. Here's a clip:
I love Kelly Joe Phelps. Great player. Great songwriter.
Damn straight, Bluetrain! Check out that video if you haven't already. He's also one the most super nice, humble guys you'll ever meet.....
How I robbed the bank!
Re- Willy Porter, Check out How to Rob a Bank- on Willy's myspace page.
Loved him at Joes Pub
Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers
If you like Jazz Piano then check out Eldar.
He's a young guy in his early 20's but it
sounds like he's been playing a long time.
He just goes by his first name Eldar. I've
seen him at yoshi's 3 times in the last several
years and he didn't disapoint. He even likes to hang
out and talk with fans before and after his shows.
I hear elements of Brubeck, Peterson and Tatum
in his playing yet he has his own sound
both have a few cd's out but theie 2010 releases are great
I don't know new, but I know good...
Miles Davis - Bitches Brew
Miles Davis - Sketches of Spain
Lou Reed - Rock and Roll Animal
Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers, Exile on Main Street
Sublime - Sublime
Beatles - Revolver, Abbey Road
Keith Jarrett - Koln Concert. If you like that you'll love Solo Concerts
Brian Eno - Taking Tiger Mountain (by strategy).
Old and In The Way - Old and In The Way
Garcia - Garcia
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
WATCH Pink Floyd's The Wall movie
Watch The Band - The Last Waltz
Watch Rolling Stones - Shine a Light.
Pink Floyd - Atom Heart Mother is pretty interesting.
Jimi Hendrix - Electric LadyLand
Dylan - Blood on the tracks
Neil Young - live rust You can also watch the DVD of that one. For 20 years I didn't even know it was a film.
Ella Fitzgerald - The Best Of The Songbooks (if the entire 16 CD Box Set it too much for you. Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holiday, Lena Horne, etc, etc. I like 'em all but Ella absolutely slays me. I think she was the best ever.
Hopefully some of this old shit will be new to you.
check out the greatest Bluegrass band ever-The Seldom Scene. They play a version of Rider that is unreal.Been around since '71 and still touring. Simply great!!
I'm pretty big right now on some of this:
Furr, Destroyer of the Void, Wild Mtn Nation albums
blitzentrapper.net new mp3 for free there: Heaven & Earth
a GD'eseque and similar in sound to GD Indie rock/folk out of Portland, OR their shit is fucking awesome, new album out late May '10, if you want new rockish sounding, w/ soaring 3 part harmonies, and incredibly poignant and well written lyrics, (like GD) check these guys out. I swear, Eric Earley may be one of a few legitimate Robert Hunter like writers out there, plus their live shows are phenomenal and so full of passion. many great shows on archive.org >> live music archive
-Mike Gordon, Green Sparrow album
ridiculously good Gordo album, easily fave solo work of any phish member. also a 2 live CD's he did, 1 fr. Boulder is hot
-Alison Brown Quartet Rewind, ABQ, other albums
if you like banjo and jazz, and reflective instrumentals and uptempo bebop like raging ragtime sounding jazz, check this lady out. 1 of my all time fave artists!!
her website is: compassrecords.com >> look under artists
-Miles Davis Tribute to Jack Johnson fusion, so good
-Medeski Martin and Wood Shackman, Combustication, Tonic-live albums jazz trio from NYC incredible chops and telepathic playing.
-Grant Lee Buffalo Mighty Joe Moon album
& Grant Lee Phillips Virginia Creeper album
If you can only get one of the 2, get the MJM album.
Super powerful, spiritual, healing and full of heart ache, redemption, celebration and some heavy subject matter even. This is folk music with rock pieces and unbelievable harmonic structures, breath taking dynamic changes, and for me, ended up being one of the best things I took out of my college years was MJM. A standalone classic, a sing along heart cleanser.
-Phil Lesh There and Back Again album
-Grateful Dead Dicks Picks (live) 12, 9, 8, 14 for starters
stuido: American Beauty, Workingman's, Wake of, In the Dark, Terrapin for starters
Axiom of Choice Niya Yesh, Unfolding albums
incredibly powerful, soaring middle eastern womens vocals and trance like drum rhythms w/ guitar and other
Anoushka Shankar Rise album
Ravi's daughter, great music with sitar.
Another album with Karsh Kale
I've found that the world music is really shaking me out of my usual music roots and would highly encourage anyone to check out some good world music, Sierra Leone Refuggees, there is so much good world music out there. Really powerful stuff too.
-Fleet Foxes vocal heavy Indie band out of Seattle area
classic NW pastoral sound
-Yo La Tengo classic indie rock forefathers
have incredible atmospheric and slow tempo chill stuff besides the typical rockers.

more music sharing threads like this i think would be excellent...smithers.

New band out of Chicago called Sissy Mena, with a new album called Record Machine. Listen to the entire album on their website. Really good rockin' sonic indie music. Almost a 90's throw back sound.
If ya do heavier stuff...
Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound: When Sweet Sleep Returned
This has been in heavy rotation for me since it came out a couple years ago. Great neo-psychedelic rock from San Francisco.
Graveyard: Hisigen blues
Heavy, intense 70's style psychedelic blues rock from Sweden.
Samasara Blues Experiment: Revelation and Mystery
New album from this great German jam heavy psych/blues power trio.
Wolves in the Throne Room, Celestial Lineage
Atmospheric, transformative, earth conscious Black metal from Olympia, Wa.
Agalloch, The Mantle
Considered Black Metal(?), this Portland band blends beautiful acoustic melodies with dark wintery themes to great effect.
Modern krautrock (Can, Neu, etc) from Chicago.
Crippled Black Phoenix: I, Vigilante
Floyd-ish modern heavy psych band
Awesomely heavy psychedelic doom rock band featuring members of Neurosis, Melvins, Sleep, and St. Vitus. Think Sabbath with trancey space grooves.
Anything by the Avett Brothers... They have a ton of fun and are awesome live :-)
The latest Umphrey's Magee is pretty jammy and pretty diverse, move past the first song on the album...
Don't shun me, but the new Black Keys album is also pretty good!!!
Return to your regularly scheduled programming...
