The new album Szabodelico by Danish psychedelic jam band Causa Sui. Overall, I think it's a bit underwhelming and not as good as previous albums, though there are a few good songs. For example, La Jolla: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OT0ANqieRw

Field: Complete Nocturnes - Elizabeth Joy Roe

Saw her play a few years ago in St. Louis and picked this up. Beautiful and mesmerizing.

Yeah, ha! I couldn’t find any songs about Arizona or I would’ve played them.
But if I had found one it probably wouldn’t have been so achingly beautiful as that number performed by Ray Charles.
Definitely not in the same league as Ray Charles, but Paul Revere and the Raiders did a song called "Arizona."

Thanks, missed that one. I suppose “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” sung by Glen Campbell (written by Jimmy Webb) could roughly fit too, though I never liked that song.

“From Elvis in Nashville” out today. From 1970, described by WSJ as "Forty tracks recorded that summer and released as three successive LPs in the months that followed (“That’s the Way It Is,” “Elvis Country” and “Love Letters From Elvis”) are revisited without the orchestral and horn overdubs piled on for those releases, presenting the wide array of material Presley and band took up live in the studio."

Very different stuff. In some I can't identify his voice, in others I'm impressed by it.

He is talented for sure. Also studied seriously in NYC, and then played with other incredible musicians (Victor Wooten).
A good week is listening to all of his music. Plenty of collaborations like with Chick Corea, Edgar Meyer, etc.

Thanks, I’m streaming it now. The first record I ever bought was a 45, “Good Luck Charm”, by Elvis. I like the pre Col. Tom Parker recordings better.

Ripples and actually the whole A Trick of a Tail album from Genesis. Queued to play is Selling England by the Pound.

Without a doubt Genesis is my favourite band. I've listened to almost all their songs over and over again. Been to a few of their concerts back in the day.

no disrespect, but heavy and lots of energy doesn't quite describe it for me.

I'll post a trigger warning a la college classes before I post a link.

Trigger Warning: contains video and sound that some may find not to their liking.

Love both those albums. Used to listen to Bitches Brew in the early 70s and in college, along with jazz fusion groups like Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, and John McLaughlin.

Yes I’m listening to Bitches Brew for the first time, fantastic stuff. There’s a 4-1/2 hour box set of this album also with outtakes. As for Kind of Blue, absolutely classic.

You have two albums from the same artist that are very different. As I said above, I was introduced to Bitches Brew very early and was one of the first jazz albums I got into. That album and the fusion artists at the time were my introduction to jazz. I was unaware of the back history of jazz - the trios and quartets going back to the 40s. I didn't begin exploring those artists until 15 to 20 years ago when I bought Kind of Blue, Around Midnight, and recordings from Brubeck, Coltane, Mingus, etc. I have friends that are into more traditional jazz who don't really like Bitches Brew and think it's just a mess. For me, it was foundational, and I think it's one reason I was later drawn to the popular groups I followed like the Grateful Dead, Phish, and Dave Matthews who included a lot of improvisation in their concert performances.
