I have been listening to Brad Mehldau quite a bit, Miles Davis - Sketches of Spain, Third Day, and of course tons of Christmas music.

I've been listening to quiet, pleasurable silence. Sometimes the cat purrs, breaking the silence for a few moments. (I read a lot and appreciate a bit of quiet)

I have been wondering where I can download songs. Tried Amazon, but you have to do them one by one and pay for each one each time. Can't select a block and then download and pay.

I've been listening to Eva Cassidy Songbird and
Ella Fitzgeralds Christmas recently. I also got some tickets today for Buddy Guy with Lonnie Brooks & Indigenous :)

enjoy the music!

Because of the new band I have not been listening to any "real" music :suprise::eek:
It's mostly dance stuff of the 70's, 80's, 90's now, etc. For the holiday parties of course it's holiday music. So it's all Nik and the Nice Guys show music. But it's fun to learn and play. Otherwise the only other thing non Nik related is Blue Oyster Cult "On your feet or on your knees" :bounce::beer: Rock on....

Very recently I have been playing the heck out of Alan Parsons Project's "Tales of Mystery and Imagination Edgar Allen Poe" I had it on album, but haven't had a record player in years so I was thrilled when I got the CD for Christmas. It is an absolutely brillant album. Of course, this time of year is Christmas music. Beyond that I am stilling listening to a lot of industrial and ebm music. For those of you not familiar, it's metal meets goth meets techno for the most part (a very simplified explanation). Right now I'm heavy into VNV Nation, Assemblage 23 and the standard Front 242 and KMFDM.

I really hate to limit myself though. I try and find something I like in most genres of music and you'll find a wide selection of musical tastes in my CD and mp3 collection.

alot of quiet or NPR.....funny, pulled out Miles Davis CD last week....had not played Sketches of Spain in a couple years.

Fine Young Cannabals, Van Morrison's Moondance, Melissa Etheridge your little secret, Dusty Springfield, Van Halen, Johnny Mathis, Nat King Cole, Tony Bennet, Frank Sinatra, CCR, Motown, DMB,CSNY.......eclectic....now if I ever get the stereo plugged in again it'd be Allen Parson's Project, loads of Jethro Tull, Possibly Fogelburg, Clash, Janis Joplin, Chicago, etc....1970's mainly.

Though the NPR classic picks were outstanding, I'm going to have to explore getting a couple of them.....hope they come in Cd's.

Now... see... I was being a good boy and not bringing up Styx. But, now you opened that box! Of course I am listening to Styx. Never stopped. I can't ever possibly turn my back on the official group of ChefTalk :)

Also listening to: the new Gilmour - Live in Gdansk, Rush - Live in Rio, Snakes and Arrows, Audioslave - Out of Exile.

And the term "project" was never more appropriate.
He had something like 300 musicians for that album.
I'm going to have to play The System of Dr Tarr & Professor Fether now.

Lately I've been listening to Jeff Healey - Mess O' Blues, his last album before his untimely death, and his recent return to the blues (he'd been doing a lot of jazz).

I'm listening to a jazz music at this very moment, and it makes me dance while preparing something healthy to eat.
