Music I Love

I'm often recommending songs to friends and younger players. I figured it would be easier to post them up here for easy access. I hope you enjoy them.

The Folks Who Live On The Hill - Charlie Haden Quartet West - Shirley Horn
00:00

Rest In Peace Charlie Haden. Thank you for the wondeful music you created. This is one of my all time favorites. Brings me to tears everytime.  

 

This band. This groove. This is for me, the toughest tightest example of what they do. This, is my desert island funk piece.  Y'dig?

Wilson Pickett   

very little is funkier than this back up band. 

 

"Near the end of 1967, Pickett began recording at American Studios in Memphis with producers Tom Dowd and Tommy Cogbill, and began recording songs by Bobby Womack. The songs "I'm In Love," "Jealous Love," "I've Come A Long Way," "I'm A Midnight Mover," (a Pickett/Womack co-write), and "I Found A True Love" were Womack-penned hits for Pickett in 1967 and 1968. Pickett recorded works by other songwriters in this era; Rodger Collins' "She's Looking Good" and a cover of the traditional blues standard "Stagger Lee" were Top 40 Pickett hits recorded at American. Womack was the guitarist on all recordings."
