Ornette Coleman Skies of America
The orchestra often times sounds like regular wishy washy OST stuff that you can easily find in
any soundtrack to any action movie in the 90s making it feel generic in small spots, but on the
other hand, the inclusion of the sax which is far less bluesy and grounded than Coleman's work
usually is (Even on his free jazz records), the inclusion of a drummer who follows jazz patterns
very closely (Contrasting the highly symphonic academic orchestration) and the extremely erratic
compositions all make up for it, to the point that "generic" is often times the very last word you
could ever think of wh

Cecil Taylor Conquistador!
Lawd, this man, unstoppable. Contrary to what most would expect from Taylor, this is fairly
subdued by his standards, especially if you judge based on his live performances rather than LP
ones, but for my money this is Taylor's best studio LP - Arguably the most accessible of all too,
but it also contains all of the hidden finesse and sting-like-a-bee, ever-collapsing melodies,
played in a more mellow manner than usual allowing for a somewhat more laid back sound that never
really lurches at you violently, but seems to wish to do so in its eyes, never quite taking the
stop though, but it doesn't

  • toxin. Yeah, I mostly meant music that's 'new to me' I used to go on here just to find new bands and albums and stuff through this site.. but I don't really do that anymore and then I kind of fell out of the community so there wasn't too much reason to go back. I remember your problems with Venezuela (in fact some of your posts from last year are still on my shoutbox lol) --- you were planning on getting out right? How's that plan going for you? Hope things start looking up. That really sounds awful :(

  • toxin. heh, clearly off this website. :) I hardly ever listen to new music nowadays (that isn't classical or off some soundtrack, anyways) so I never really have much reason to log back on Sput. Weezer album had me log in for the first time in months. How've ya been, man?
