    What are you listening to

    I notice on a few other audio sites that there is an on going thread regarding music listening. So I am proposing such a thread to help boost site numbers and general interest on the site

    Great idea, R1, and I've often wondered why there wasn't one around here -- maybe having one will up participation.

    OK, so last night I listen to ...

    Dmitri Shostakovich: Symphony No. 7, "Leningrad" ~ Dmitri Yablonsky conducting the Russian Philharmonic Orchestra

    ... playing on Foobar2000. Pretty decent performance and sound.

    Need to do something, I think smokey is burning out his search engine , but music is something many of us participate with so why not share our interest and taste.

    Great bassist. Arguably a contender for best in the business these days. Love it when he uses the bow. Can't beat a good trio. They sound lively and tight. Interesting compositions and he's only getting better.

    That's high-larious! There are a few that make me smile, too. I used to have an anti-country bias, but now I can appreciate a good song (to my ears) no matter the genre. Hank Williams' voice used to get on my nerves, but now I dig his phrasing and his band is just so mellow. I like well-done pedal steel. There's some quality music in country; however, I don't hear it on the radio. Takes some digging around. Then there's the western side of country that provokes images of big Texas dance halls, the Bakersfield sound of which Buck Owens is a pioneer. Hell, I never thought I'd like Buck Owens after being "forced" to watch HeeHaw as a kid. Then, cosmic American music of Gram Parsons, the outlaws like Waylon and Willie and singer-song writers like Townes Van Zandt. Well, you get the picture. There's alot out there that's just kinda lumped into "country". I couldn't tell you who's at the top of the country charts today. The contemporary country music I've heard doesn't do anything for me.

    I hear a lot of it now, my boss is a big country fan. But I hear in the lyrics of some of the newer stuff references to rap slang and artist. I mean when did country boys roll on 28" rims booming T-pain, I'm just saying.

    Energetic. Lively. Polyrhythmic. Urban. Folk. Afro-cuban... I dunno.
    She's got a great talent for looping herself back into her songs.

    Slate:
    Her songs skedaddle up and down sonic hills and valleys like an avant-junkmanís jalopy, sounding the polyphonic steam-whistle of her remarkable voice in beckoning and in warning, while the injustices and sicknesses of society drag behind like a tangle of barbed fences that the cart has barreled through.

    I don't think the video below really sells the album. Maybe just close your eyes and listen.
