Great thread this...

Tonight I'm spinning Grant Green - Carryin' On. This 1969 album was Green's return to Blue Note after a stint with other labels and marks a major change in his style turning to funky-jazzy R&B tunes. Great album!

Check out the solos on "Hurt so bad".

I am going to join the Talk Talk celebration, however the party is well and truly over
a fan from the beginning - used to remember dancing to Talk Talk in the disco's( such a good song). It's My Life album I must have played 100 times when it was released - just brilliant. very sad - RIP Mark Hollis

Tonight it's an overdose of French pop: Christine and the Queens - Charleur Humaine. This is Héloïse Letissier's first album from 2014, allegedly a huge success in France which more or less made her a star overnight.

Intelligent pop music, good sound quality, albeit a tad bass heavy, beautiful melodies. She also published an English version of this album but personally I much prefer the original version with the French lyrics.

Check out "Saint Claude" and "Paradis Perdu".

Hi Tang. good :) that is what music is all about.

Such a Shame and Renee are two of the most depressing and beautiful songs that when track 4 - It's My Life comes on, its like an elixir of life.
Of course Mark is better known for his later albums, but this has a soft spot for me.

Fat of the land? Is this on retired people sitting on their sofas staring at their music systems?

The LondonJazzCollector made me pull out a record tonight that I haven't been spinning in quite a while: Gil Evans - The Individualism of Gil Evans.
Such a great album. I especially like the exciting track "Las Vegas Tango". Incidentally there is a quite interesting cover version of this song on Gary Burtons 1970's album "Good Vibes".
