New Carcass!!!!! Everything else must bow down to its awesomeness.

"The greatest battle is not physical but psychological. The demons telling us to give up when we push ourselves to the limit can never be silenced for good. They must always be answered by the quiet, steady dignity that simply refuses to give in. Courage. We all suffer. Keep going." - Graeme Fife

Brass is badass! Arranging for funk, blues, hot jazz... what a blast! There's so much you can do with a horn section.

OK, now you're really talking my language. You realize, of course, that we've already been ostracized for such heresy... So may as well carry on. : )

Gil Evans. Especially his big band arrangements with Miles. Give a listen. He has some really unique ways of voicing - and his use of "non-standard" instruments in jazz adds interesting color.

Louis Bellson also has some great great big band stuff. Really powerful.


So cool to learn about your love for music! Speaking of which, I'm headed over to my climbing partner's tonight - to play music! \:D/

Without musicians, there wouldn't be any music...

What I prefer to perform/play doesn't always correspond to what I like to listen to or see performed live. And performing popular music is not typically challenging or very interesting. We did an arrangement of Beatles songs recently, and while a lot of fun, was kinda meh. Even got to "sing" the chorus of Hey Jude. An ex in college taught me to play guitar one evening on spring break. By the end of the night, I could play Today by Smashing Pumpkins. It used to be my favorite song when I was in HS (for multiple reasons I won't go into), but it didn't make me want to pursue guitar.

Now if I had a voice, I'd be all over this:


"Auto racing, bull fighting, and mountain climbing are the only real sports ... all others are games."

Their live studio version of Brothers on a Hotel Bed is pretty good as well.
