And if ska isn't your thing, here's an acoustic version of the same tune:

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

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:

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

"Mountains seem to answer an increasing imaginative need in the West. More and more people are discovering a desire for them, and a powerful solace in them. At bottom, mountains, like all wildernesses, challenge our complacent conviction - so easy to lapse into - that the world has been made for humans by humans. Most of us exist for most of the time in worlds which are humanly arranged, themed and controlled. One forgets that there are environments which do not respond to the flick of a switch or the twist of a dial, and which have their own rhythms and orders of existence. Mountains correct this amnesia. By speaking of greater forces than we can possibly invoke, and by confronting us with greater spans of time than we can possibly envisage, mountains refute our excessive trust in the man-made. They pose profound questions about our durability and the importance of our schemes. They induce, I suppose, a modesty in us."
