The last few posts have been mirroring my listening tastes lately, guess we are just drawn to good music!

One of Allan Holdsworth's last shows: https://youtu.be/LKiq1e40CIM

Wish I could have caught this music live.  Starting here and going back (for me), it's like a new world!

Wayne Shorter – soprano saxophone
John McLaughlin – electric guitar
Chick Corea – electric piano
Herbie_Hancock – electric piano
Joe_Zawinul – organ
Dave Holland – double bass

Loved the VSOP cover, but that In A Silent Way!!!!
A heart wrenching beauty in the intro and outro of that - the fact that music (controlled noise/ sound) can hold such emotion is staggering.

And on the flip side, Listened to Deep Purple's Made In Japan. 
"yeah yeah yeah the freaks said!"
This was probably the 2nd or 3rd album I bought when in my youth...   ??? :) ;D

In a Silent Way...extraordinary! I get chills very time I hear it and that's at least twice a month.

Re Deep Purple; just glancing through their catalog, I remember Shades, Taliesyn, Fireball, Machine Head, and Japan.  I vaguely recall that in the mid 90's my band covered Hush.  Machine Head and Fireball were favorites of the band I was in during high school, though I doubt we were able to actually play the songs.

My brother and I were bouncing e-mails back and forth and I laid a bit of our current life challenges on him.  He responded by sending this:

Which actually made me feel better, and now listening to the Last Waltz - one of the joys is that it is the kind of album that encourages me to sing along with it!  Not sure my co-workers appreciate that as much as I enjoy it.

If Mavis's verse doesn't give you goosebumps, check your pulse - you're probably dead.

That's my favorite version of that one too!  I also liked "Ophelia" from the Last Waltz".

Thanks for the reminder!  :)

The Making of a Steinway; somewhat bigger than an Alembic, and with a few more strings.

Awoke with the lyrics from this song bouncing in my head.  Our tv died about 3 weeks ago - I don't miss it at all, and the only news I catch is on NPR on my short commute into work. I believe recent events stuck these lyrics in my head:
