Re: What music are you listening to now?

I used to have that Grant Green album somewhere. There is a not a lot of regular blues in Zürich, with the possible exception of the Casa bar. Jazz is far more popular, but is not quite my thang...

Check out blueballs.ch for blues festivals etc.

I went to the Casa a couple of times - music is fine but they overprice the drinks substatantiously which is maybe fair enough seen as there is no entrance fee. Problem is that I do enjoy a drink so i end up paying the rent on that place.

No blues no cry ... anyone tried Mood's (schiffbau) ? They tend to have the odd blues band. Also saw the Leeds outfit 'The New Mastersounds' thee on new years eve. Excellent instrumental jazz/funk outfit.

Re: What music are you listening to now?

All time faves would be
Don McLean - American Pie
Europe - Final Countdown
Dire Straits

So a bit behind the times here!

I stumbled across a wonderful website recently http://www.midomi.com where you can sing or hum a song and they will recognize it for you. Handy for those times when you have a tune buzzing round your brain and you can't quite place it......!

Re: What music are you listening to now?

I've got quite an eclectic taste in music, from Pantera to Dream Theater to Toby Keith to Serge Gainsbourg, anything but rap and r&b.

But one thing puzzles me, I haven't seen anyone list classical composers here, am I the only one that loves this music?!

Re: What music are you listening to now?

Nope, I have a lot of time for classical stuff as well - any and all goes with me. Mind you I tend to have very cliche'd tastes in that sort of thing, Ravel's Bolero, Holst's Planets, Take Five (OK not classic but still that sort of music), Gershwin's Rhapsody In Blue - I do like other stuff but not enough to know it

(although since that link that DaveA gave ages ago to Joshua Bell playing in a train station in Washington I keep meaning to get some of his stuff...)

There are some classical music lovers on the forum...I love classical stuff and do own the odd classical compilation in my cd collection. I do have a bias towards Tchaikovsky from school orchestra days (I played the oboe and aside from swan lake we always got the crap parts and the flutes and clarinets usually got the good bits), and I love Beethoven. Rachmaninoff is always good to listen to, he wrote some fantastic piano music which sadly I was never good enough to play. How anyone can play the Rach 3 is a mystery just looking at the score is enough to scare me off!!!

Re: What music are you listening to now?

Death Cab for Cutie, the Klaxons, Placebo (never get bored of them)... spot of Amy Winehouse if only to marvel at how a talent that big could be so self destructive, but ain't that always the way with creative types.

Same goes for most of Liszt, Chopin and Beethoven (especially the 3rd movement of his appassionata) compositions. I'm glad there's at least a few of you out there who enjoy classical music, most of my friends are not too keen on it.

Terryhall, Holst's planets is also one of my favorites, especially Neptune the mystic, great music to relax by.

Got to love Mr Scruff!

Saw him live at alexander palace a few years ago.

Also as a DJ I used his song "Get a Move on" as the intro song to jazzy house set just a little bit sped up

I can picture it now. Even though I lived about an hour out of Manchester for 3 years I never got to see him live
