By the time you read this I hope to be in Prague, my first trip to Europe since 1975, and my first foreign holiday since 2000. Fingers crossed. Anyway, I’ll be back before you know it so here’s this week’s selection; if you have a worm you’d like to share (.mp3 or link) please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org, with a short paragraph about why you’ve chosen it. Feel free to discuss below, though I won’t be around to respond for a few days. Sbohem!
Ramsey Lewis Trio – The In Crowd – Ravi Raman: Deano’s Wilson post reminded me of this favourite of mine. Just love the audience participation in this. I have been listening to quite a bit of piano after a long time. Will send in a couple more.
Albert Castiglia & Graham Wood Drout – Blow Wind Blow – tincanman: Two of Florida’s most respected bluesmen team up often for festivals, and in 2006 made time in their schedules to record a damn-fine, southern rock/blues album, Bittersweet Sessions.
Manic Street Preachers – Can’t Take My Eyes Off You – severin: From the Lipstick Traces album which features singles, b sides, live tracks, rarities and cover versions. Including this one. Odd but fun.
Tom Speight – The River: “the first single from Tom Speight’s new EP My My My (rel 28.7.17) …Tom says: ‘I’ve always wanted to record ‘The River’ with Chris Bond…. The production uses a similar palette as ‘Willow Tree’ with its strings, female vocals and double bass. I was lucky enough to have Allie Moss feature on guest vocals, she has such a beautiful tone to her voice.”
Francobollo – Worried Times: Sweden’s Francobollo will release their much-anticipated debut album Long Live Life on July 14th via Square Leg Records. Today the band are sharing a live performance video of new single Worried Times, filmed at their recent sold out show with The Big Moon at London’s Village Underground.
Trü – Kirsti: “NJ-based rockers Trü are sharing “Kirsti,” the latest single off of their forthcoming debut EP. The song premiered on Atwood Magazine who said, “‘Kirsti’ is infectious, timeless and bold – the musical equivalent of throwing rocks at your crush’s second-story window.” (She wishes her name was “Alison”. How could I resist? Ed.)
